I pay for two accounts. Was using PC but have recently shifted to Mac. Frequent "no warning" client shutdowns on Mac have me inclined to go back to PC client. Sadly...

Played it on my PC before, bought CrossOver to run it when i got my MacBook Pro last year, Trinity broke that, used the Cider and the PC Client since, atm back on the PC, cause my MBP gets a new DVD Drive.

I run bootcamp on a MacBook Pro... gotta love having a laptop that can run Call of Duty 4 and doesn't weigh 20lbs. I do most of my gaming in Windows but pretty much anything else in OSX, and I absolutely love the fact that if I want to pop online to check my skills, or to talk with some corp mates or see what the alliance is up to, I can do so now without having to change OSes.

Now all we need is a Mac version of EVEMon!

I've been playing since September 2006, and I started using the Mac client on my MacBook Pro right when it came out. At least in the past couple of months, I have had no problems at all with crashing clients. Even with two accounts logged in at once (separate EVE client .app and Preferences folders), it works just fine.

I have the original MacBook Pro 17", 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo, 2GB RAM, ATI Radeon X1600 256MB.

I play EVE exclusively on Mac OS X on my MBP, since I could never get the Linux client to get past a black screen on my desktop.

Playing exclusively on Mac since three months back using an iMac to get the real work done and a poor little Air to keep the training going 24/7... and paying for it, of course.

I pretty much do everything Eve-related on the Mac client. Except for corp mining ops. I boot into Windows for that alone--three instances of eve hurts my poor iMac in OS X (it kinda hurts in windows, too, actually, but not as bad); or used to. I haven't tried it since the patch.

I'm Morgan. I've been playing for a month or so. The first month I was so pleased I bought ram upgrades to get the full experience. Put them in during the 1.1 downtime. (You can see the epistemological downfall here.) Now I simply cannot play for more than 3-5 minutes. Tomorrow, I will know if its the MBP. If it is the Mac, then its just a little more cash for a sweet game. If its not the Mac, then I'm going to phone, e-mail, and write CCP into action because I want my sky.

You should reinstall Eve completely. Check out Will post on increasing performance. But make sure that the ram is correctly installed.

I suppose i should post here too.

Ive been playing for a bit over ten months now and used to run the doze client in crossover and then moved to parallels for that. Since the mac version came out ive stuck with it over rebooting (the other two solutions seem redundant now) and using boot camp to play, except when i fancy a gawp at the pretty premium graphics. Despite the problems in the mac client i think ill be sticking with it because its playable for me and is just so much more convenient, but i really do hope a concerted effort is taken to fix the biggest bugs present at the moment. For me, the premium graphics and other stuff like antialiasing comes secondary to that, although thats not to say i dont want to see those things in the future.

All mac users know there is a waiting period for good Mac software. Being a Mac driver for 20+ yeears, I think the Trinity mac client is a sweet piece of work on the part of CCP. I had crash issues along with all the other Mac drivers but they wernt really so bad. 2 to 3 crashes a week, concidering the size and detail of Eve doesn't seem to bad. My Corp mates had to show info from time to time, they still give me updates on other player when we are flying togeter. I have trained them well. LOL. The issue overview window reseting after dock or a jump is a little annoying. I'm sure it'll get fixed soon enough. I would like to be able to do voice in Eve. My corp mate do it, but I have yet to figure out how to set it up on my client. anyone has any info please get with me.

Thanks,

Clee

I also pay for two accounts, and my play alternates between the Mac client and a PC client ... depending on where I am and how long I can get away to play. The new 1.1 patch has significantly improved play on the Mac for me ... and actually made play on the PC a little harder, particularly when playing both accounts at once. Playing just one account on either Mac or PC has not given me any problems at all since the patch.

i'm playing almost exclusively on mac since the mac client was released.

and while there are still graphic glitches the 1.1 boost patch surely improved stability a lot.

haven't had any disconnect nor crash to desktop since 1.1

I just subscribed, after playing almost exclusively with the Mac client. I'm hoping that by all of us "voting with my dollars," we'll see the time-acceleration and map-graphic bugs fixed soon. ;)

I pay for EVE, and I use a Mac. I haven't played a lot of online RPGs, but I'm very close to selling more memberships to other Mac users who hunger for good games. After five months, I'd be happier if they'd fix my broken portrait.

I'm paying for my account, and just recently sold my PC and now I play exclusively on my new iMac 20" with 1gb of RAM and 2400XD Radeon (something like that, I'm not sure about the exact name).

Runs like a charm using the mac client. I'm just a little disapointed about the difficult of using the mac keyboard, I have to press the Fn key before using F1-F8 , but other than that, it's great, very stable, I haven't crashed yet, and I play around 3 or 4 hours in a row.

All in all, a job well done, at least for me =)

I'm playing using the OS X client on a new black-and-silver iMac. When I first started, it crashed a lot (at least twice a day), but crashes have been very rare since the first patch to Trinity, maybe once every few weeks.

I'm certainly not leaving, although I would really like to see premium graphics for the Mac client; I recently booted up EVE on a friend's PC and was instantly blown away by the difference.

I would probably play on the Mac client more if it supported the Trinity Graphics. Rebooting into Windows via Bootcamp just to play EvE gets old after a while.I haven't been playing much and will probably cancel my subscription if They don't update sooner than later.
Apple really needs to get up to speed with the gaming community and software companies need to start writing for Macs. Non of this Wine stuff. Very disappointing that Spore will be run the same way and Warcraft is getting old.
But in 5 days I can fly my Damnation so we'll see if that gets me back into EvE a little. ;-)

I started playing and paying for Eve Online once the Mac OS X client was released. And, in fact, the release of the Mac OS X client of Eve Online was when I told myself I'd buy an Intel based Mac. It's a bit crashy on my MacBook Pro, but I have no intention of using the Windows client at all.

Personally, I too am frustrated by the frequent crashes. I am not a bootcamp user currently, but I have thought about buying an XP license just for running EVE. It would be nice to get the premium graphics too (assuming that's possible on a 15" MBP with 3GB RAM...).

I've literally just started playing. I thought that I would install it on Vista as well and see how it compares but so far so good.

Pretty daunting game to get into though :).

By happy coincidence the long awaited purchase of my 24" iMac materialised at the same time as the release of the Mac client. Now I happily play both my accounts on the Mac (and on a wintel laptop when I need to dual box) :)
And I have to say that recently it's been far more stable than my Vista running laptop.

Having seen a number of Mac users complain about the client I just have this to say:
Complaining and threatening to ditch your Mac version for a PC for whatever reason - usually "because it sucks", without any clear indication of the issues you are experiencing - is a sure sign that you lack the maturity or intelligence to contribute to the growth of EVE and especially the Mac client.

The Mac client is how many months old ? and the PC client is how many *years* old?? Of course there are going to be instabilities and bugs in the new system - this is the way it is with all new software! It takes time and end user support to help a product grow.
So instead of whining, start contributing positively - take the time to log bugs and issues to support the growth of the client for your preferred platform.
