My friend recently acquired a MacBook with OS X Leopard. He has tried to use the Mac Eve client, but it leaves him with a black screen. It changes the cursor, and he can hear the background music for the login screen, but that's it. Any suggestions?

I had a similar problem on the Macbook Air. It's took AGES to "load" and then it worked.

Hi MidnightWyvern

MacBook is not officially supported, because of the graphics card it is using. I can come up with two suggestions that your friend can try:

1. Update Leopard, if not already done.
2. Clear the client cache:

1. Open Finder
2. Go to Home
3. Open Library
4. Open Preferences
5. Open EVE Online Preferences
6. Open p_drive
7. Open Local settings
8. Open Application Data
9. Open CCP
10. Open EVE
11. Move all the files and folders to Trash. (File called History.txt, Folders called: "c_program_files_ccp_eve_tranquility", "Cache" and "settings"
12. Restart your client

Note that doing this will delete your ingame settings such as Bookmark folders, Overview settings, color settings etc.

Good luck.
