Playing Eve with the native client with no problems. After updating my system with the new nvidia drivers, i only get a black screen when i start eve. Previous nvidia driver version 100.14.23 new drivers 169.07
I installed the drivers with the YAST tool. My other game just runs fine (Guildwars in wine).

Reintstalled eve completly and now i get thise funny graphical screen wich is unreadeble. I played around with some settings with now result.

I also tried the windows client in wine (version 0.9.51) but i only get a blank screen. i did install the arial.ttf in de fonts directory which worked before.

I thought i try out the new drivers 169.04 but all it did was **** up my graphics.
Eve starts and all that but the graphics looks like I'm running 256 colours.
The performance is much better thou, getting 10-30 fps more depending on situation.
So if someone has a solution to the "256 colour" problem please let me know.

sorted my 256 colour problem by updating to the latest nvidia drivers.

Simply using a generic Wine 0.9.51 install will not result in a working EVE client. You will have to either download the source code for .51 (or latest GIT) apply the 0001-BindIOCompletion patch (possibly manually), compile it and install it. I'd suggest installing it somewhere other than the default location so as not to conflict with a generic install.

I'm afraid I can't help with the Cegeda thing, that's Transgamings ball and I can't play with it.
