Deleting "prefs.ini" solved the problem for me.

On Windows 7 the file is located in this directory:

Drive:\Users\Accountname\AppData\Local\CCP\EVE\g_ccp_eve_tranquility\settings

The drive letter and accountname are of course system specific.

Edit: the bug is back after you close the game and start it again

Guess I have to play in german until a fix arrives ugh

Mine don't start either. Using XP. Already tried the repair client and a 404 error found.

Edit: I found this error in the logserver while the initialization.

UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xf3' in position 76: ordinal not in range(128)

i had same problem on vista 64 after the last 2 patchs. get the splash screen followed by nothing but the desktop, game is running in process's window.

To solve it delete the ccp folder from the local files in documents folder.
you may need to untick show hidden files in view options.

dongo, did you delete your ccp folder mate(this folder contains all ur settings for the game) it is hidden folder so make sure you have show hidden folders ticked under the view options menu. otherwise you wont see it,

plus i believe there is another ccp folder in documents, deleting this wont do anything ,it has to be the hidden folder

Those of you having to delete pref.ini every time you run eve, could one of you upload the offending file to eveFiles or some such and link it here?

I suspect I know what is happening and if so, I can write a batch script that you could launch eve from and only loose your language localization settings every time. But to know for sure I would need a copy of the offending file (or several offending files).

Edit: ok, LimStift (post below) found the problem. To generalize it, if there are any unicode characters anywhere in the file you need to replace them with some other valid value. You can tell if a character is Unicode by opening the prefs.ini file in a text editor that does not support Unicode or has Unicode disabled.

Seems like CCP made a poor choice in string handling functions.

Okay, I found out what is causing the error(for me). In the aforementioned prefs.ini, check the path for BrowserCache, and make sure it contains no wierd letters. I had an "" in there, and it prevented the game from starting. You can just change it to whatever you want as long as it is a proper path, I think.

Hi all,

Those of you who are experiencing this issue. Can you please reply here with:

- What value the "BrowserCache=" has in the prefs.ini file.
- What your OS language is.
- If you can resolve your issue by simply deleting the BrowserCache line from prefs.ini.
- If the line is re-added after a restart of the client.

Location of prefs.ini on a default install:

* Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\CCP\EVE\c_program_files_ccp_eve_tranquility\settings
* Windows XP Steam: %USERPROFILE%\Local SettingsLocal Settings\Application Data\CCP\EVE\c_program_files_steam_steamapps_common_eve_online_tranquility\settings
* Windows Vista: %LOCALAPPDATA%\CCP\EVE\c_program_files_ccp_eve_tranquility\settings
* Windows Vista Steam: %LOCALAPPDATA%\CCP\EVE\c_program_files_steam_steamapps_common_eve_online_tranquility\settings
* Windows Vista 64bit: %LOCALAPPDATA%\CCP\EVE\c_program_files_(x86)_ccp_eve_tranquility\settings
* Windows Vista 64bit Steam: %LOCALAPPDATA%\CCP\EVE\c_program_files_(x86)_steam_steamapps_common_eve_online_tranquility\settings
* Windows 7: %LOCALAPPDATA%\CCP\EVE\c_program_files_ccp_eve_tranquility\settings
* Windows 7 Steam: %LOCALAPPDATA%\CCP\EVE\c_program_files_steam_steamapps_common_eve_online_tranquility\settings
* Windows 7 64bit: %LOCALAPPDATA%\CCP\EVE\c_program_files_(x86)_ccp_eve_tranquility\settings
* Windows 7 64bit Steam: %LOCALAPPDATA%\CCP\EVE\c_program_files_(x86)_steam_steamapps_common_eve_online_tranquility\settings

Simply copy and paste the paths into the explorers address bar or into the field you get by Start-Run or Windows-Key + R


If you are unable to find it there, try this:

* Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\CCP\EVE\
* Windows Vista: %LOCALAPPDATA%\CCP\EVE\

1. Simply copy and paste the paths into the explorers address bar or into the field you get by Start-Run or Windows-Key + R
2. Open the folder with the name that has path to where your eve install is located. If there is only one folder there, open it.
3. Open the settings folder


Thank you.
