I've been playing eve-online for around a year. Never had one problem with it...I logged into eve before downtime to change skill. But when i tried to start eve after downtime it did't work...It loads the splash screen then does.....well nothing. I've tried restarting my computer. Any Idea's ??!?!?!

Fixed. Had to delete the cache files.

I've got the same problem on my work machine.

Eve loads the splash screen. Then nothing.

My client starts minimized in the taskbar and won't maximize. I restarted it a few times and then rebooted. I then tried alt-enter to get the client unstuck from the taskbar. Doing that caused a game error.

I was playing a few hours ago without any problems.

I found a description of how to clear out cache and temp files Eve creates. Removing/Renaming those 2 files cleared up the problem

I would like to add that using their proposed method for finding the file's location didn't work for me. And to the guy that trolls the boards and suggest NOTHING but "update you driver and reinstall the game"- your simple mindedness is astounding.

I still can't get the game to start correctly. Once the game starts, the splashscreen minimizes to the taskbar and won't pop back up. The only thing I can do to maximize the client is to alt-enter. Doing that causes a game error- AppName: exefile.exe AppVer: ModName: _trinity.dll
ModVer: Offset: 0002a3bf

Playing the safemode version of the game doesn't change this behavior.

Hi guys,

I have the same problem since... only 1h ago. Coincidentally it happened at the same time as a windows update (vista). I was wondering, to all of you who get the same minimized EVE with the sound but no option, are you all using windows vista?

Have you guys considered filing a technical support petition?

Same here, though, it doesn't minimize or anything, it just won't connect to the server
