I cannot even log into the game, the new client constantly crashes on me.
First off i tried the autopatcher in game. It said re-install..
I then tried the manual patch. It said re-install...
Then I just downloaded the whole new client, and it wont even let me log in, it brings up the eula, and at seemingly random intervals it crashes completely. Sometimes I make it to the bottom and click accept, sometimes I dont make it.
Anybody else had this issue?

dis-reguard. Rebooted and works like a champ now.
I guess i should reboot every now and again, two weeks without a reboot kinda would put a dampener on just about any os.

Eve is the only thing that makes me reboot my Mac. Part of the Mac experience is that the OS does not suck. Thank you, eve team for making my OS suck.

My client is crashing constantly as well, I think around 10 times in the past hour. Seems to be happening mostly when I open a new window, especially to look at a character's info. Kind of frustrating especially since I'm running a brand new iMac.

i have the same problem since the trinity expansion. it's really really awful. i had no problems prior to this patch, but now it quits on me in the middle of battles and even just sitting docked in a station. it makes the game unplayable and if it doesn't get fixed soon i'm going to demand a refund of my subscription since i literally cannot play the game right now.

yes my rate of crashes have risen to a whole new level with this "update".
Before my screen would just freeze and necessitate a opt/command/esc force quit to get out and then a reboot to start up the app again. Now I get a black screen - ominous, also requires a force quit and reboot. I have never , in over 10 years of using macs, had anything run that gave my computer the blues this much.
heh, yet I am still here trying to make it work....

Same here. The client seems to crash at random intervals (about once every hour or so of gameplay), and doesn't even leave a crash log behind most of the time. I'll try filing a bug report, although I have a feeling it'll bounce back as "unreproducible"... I think I might try running the Windows client under CrossOver and see if that helps. Guess I might have to go and buy CrossOver too, then...

Or just bend over backwards and install XP with Boot Camp. Ick.

All in all, I keep being less and less impressed by the performance of the OS X client. It seems to get worse with every "update." I wish CCP would have the sense to use OpenGL et al instead of DirectX. Would make porting much less of a hassle. Not that it's ever going to happen, but a man can dream... Next step: DX10 which means it'll probably be unplayable on OS X or Linux.

Ditto, I'm having regular crashes of the most odd sort. No crash logs, no dialogs, no nothing. Suddenly EVE is gone like it was never even running.

yea out 50 or so crashes only 1 time did i get that crash log. It seems to happen most when changing areas or entering stations for me. Has me nervous to do missions would hate to loose ship due to client crashing.

Now for me the mac client crash, the previous version worked very well. There are also a hit, jerks in the game It's very unpleasant. And besides we do not have access to the latest graphical improvements .. Pfff

Adding my voice to the chorus.

MacBook Pro; 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. 2GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM, Radeon X1600
Running OSX: Leopard (Version #10.5.1) and EvE Online (Client #4.10.45017)

The client consistently, but unpredictably CTD's within the first hour of usage. I have noticed this happening mostly on the opening of new windows (once when I went to open the 'set standings' window on another player, and once shortly after selecting the docking option outside a station - when the popup telling you that you're being brought in would normally pop up). It crashed a few other times, but I can't recall my exact actions at the time of the CTD.

The client has also become unresponsive to my "esc" key once since the patch. Because I couldn't open the menu to 'quit eve', I closed the window by clicking on the red 'X' in the upper left hand corner. The window and process become unresponsive at that point, and eventually needed a "kill -9" after waiting for 4-5 minutes. I have not seen this particular bug since then.

This is exactly my problem. I will be sending in bug reports this evening, EVE is crashing ten times as frequently, and very strangely (indeed, no longer freezing but just... vanishing).

I've been having similar problems, game just crashes, i.e., the window disappears with no crash report, like the game was never running... once this starts once, it will continue to happen at very frequent intervals, it normally starts happening after an hour or so of play. The only solution I've found is rebooting. This problem has only cropped up since the trinity patch, prior to that I did get occasional freezes that required a force quit, but these at least had error logs. I've noticed this when jumping from systems with a lot of tabs open, particularly Wallet and Market tabs... though that might just be because after about an hour I have a lot of windows open. Hopefully all will be fixed soon.

I am getting crashes too. very random but when they do start they will happen over and over again until i restart the computer.

Posted - 2007.12.09 01:36:00 - [23]

I am also seeing the spontaneous exit-to-desktop issue. No crashes, no hangs, EVE just closes and disappears from the Dock. I did discover one interesting thing in the system log, hopefully it will be useful to the devs:

Dec 8 20:30:13 Grace [0x0-0x1e01e].com.transgaming.EVEOnline[0]: err:seh:EXC_DefaultHandling Unhandled exception code c0000026 flags 1 addr 0x68d828

Anyone else who is having this issue, do you see this or similar in your system.log?

*Holds up Tux plushie* I come in peace don't shoot! Razz

Don't know much about OS X but Cegeda is pretty much Wine. Wine has two processes one called, oddly enough, wine and the other wineserver, on Linux, once it starts getting crash happy I'll often find zombied wineserver processes littering the place (and others called exe-file).

If you open a Terminal and ps -ef you should be able to spot them and issue the requisite kill -9 <process> command. Cegeda doesn't run as root on Linux so you shouldn't need to sudo su or anything.

YMMV but it gets the thing stableish again on Linux so should work on OS X.

Been having the same problem... What seems to help greatly is logout of my account when it first happens (this isn't windows, no need to reboot!), and log back in. EVE also doesn't seem to like ANY background apps running what so ever (pity, life without iTunes sucks)...

If I do the above I can get a good hour or two out of it before having to log out/in again.

Since Trinity hit I've been starting to crash every 20 minutes or so on a 2.33ghz Macbook Pro. No crash report or anything, client just silently disappears. Only thing worth mentioning is:

I got so bored with all bugs and s**t in the Mac client so I went downtown and bought Windows Vista instead. No I am running EVE via Bootcamp and the difference is so huge I can not even longer see the Mac client as a alternative. I can now play the new graphic, adjust 3D settings in CatalystCP and play with fps around 50-100 (depends on 3D settings in CCP)..

So...I am a bit sad bugs and s**t made me quit the Mac client, but like I said, the difference is so huge. I would rather have stayed in OS X but when it comes to EVE, Windows is the only way to go.

But..let me know IF the day comes when you can play EVE in OS X with same fast and stable experience like EVE via Bootcamp.

What about other systems with a lot of other players? I've found that any system with more than ~160 people in it causes the same type of crash.

Also, mine often crashes when it tries to download an image of another character.

I have also been getting constant crashes where the client just quits to desktop. Has happened when warping, dock/undocking, entering/exiting a system, with no signs as to when or if a crash will occur. Very very annoying.

They really need to put some kind of crash log or reporter into the client because I have filed multiple bug reports on this crashing issue, making them as detailed as I could, only to get the generic response, "The problem you have described was non-reproducible." Bug report filtered or closed.Evil or Very Mad

Its nice to see they are working on the issue...Rolling Eyes
