well im on my second reinstallation after trying to install the patch which corrupted my game. Yet another instance of the ccp patch team incompetence? Seriously these people are being paid too much. I know some hobo's that are looking for work that would be better for this role if your looking for people...

Ill be back in another 2 hours (2 hour installation time, and thats without the patch on a cutting edge machine? wtf??)

Yea I tied to install patch on steam version and it says that some files are corrupted.
Ok so I re downloaded eve (via steam because normal download have failed) and during patch installation "There was temporally error downloading the requested file"
My firewall/antyvirus/spyware/system settings are not a problem here because the same error pops up on my laptop.

And here's overkill ;)

"The requested URL /EVE_Premium_Setup_88737_m.exe was not found on this server."

Ha the last 4 patches made my client corrupt.
The only solution that worked for me was to transfer de client from my laptop.
It wouldn't let me install and every client download was corrupt......Confused

The last 3 patches has forced me to re-download EVE each time. The 2 patches before this one was done through the automatic patching which both failed and the game became corrupt. The new patch I decided to download from the website here and install it, once again failed and game became corrupt. CCP realy has a piece of Sh** system for patching. Now I have to miss out on training because his training should be done in about hour, set from yesterday, because I now have to spend about 6 hours downloading EVE.

Yeah same here. Ever since Rev I've had to do a fresh install of two clients every single patch that comes out. At least I'm used to it now. Might think about adding a :ccp: emoticon to these forums.

error is:

Verification Failure
Your EVE Client Installation may have modified, damaged or corrupt files. Please re-install the game client.
Verification failed: "C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE\common.ini', crc:590402d8, expected:22ff13ad.

Got the same problems, verification fails and offline installer download was aborted because the file is not there anymore...

Same, good to know I am paying to stare at a message telling me the patch is corrupt.

Please CCP have MORE of my money. Imbecilles.

What makes it worse is with today's patch there isn't even a full client version available. So I have to try and download the patch and update again manually and hope it works this time. This upset me a month ago. Now here I am having to repeat the process.

Game corrupted by patch.

7 hours downloading full-client.

Full-client has some bug.

When loading nothing is displayed except a blank screen and the mouse cursor.

Me as well, game corrupted by patch, told to redownload the game, do so and the game installer still needs to be patched, and patch fails again. Awesome job, petition in, wonder if I will ever get a response.

so as I primed my "winblows" grunts after successfully patching my mac.... I engaged the game through Steam and it got the update.... said there are files corrupted and promptly exited.

I said Frak that.... so I went and did the patch manually...patch says its already there.

Launched EVE and its been actively running ok for the last 3 or 4 hours.

All I can say is.... this is par for the course when it comes to windows.

I didn't need to reinstall it.... not about too either.
