(I'm very sorry to have posted this topic twice; I put in in in the Issues forum, but after thinking about it, I realized that I should prolly have put it here in the Mac forum in the first place. I know its rude to post the same thing in multiple places and I apologize).

For a couple of weeks, all the planets in eve have been appearing bright pink and yellow. Many planets are bisected by a huge rainbow colored square. I actually thought it was kind of cool, in a trippy way, and didn't worry too much about it.

Today I decided to give PI a go, and unfortunately, the planets are still pink and yellow even in the planet interface, so none of the scans shows up.

I optimized my graphics setting for quality, and while eve looks a whole lot prettier now, the planets are still all bright pink and yellow, and the giant rainbow squares are still there.

Does anyone have any advice?

Hi Ange,

Can you provide some more info for us, so we can better look into the issue? Specifically, which graphics settings do you have enabled and what graphics card are you using?

Also, what version of OS X are you currently running?

Although Im not having this problem, I do notice that the planet will be some bright color for about one second when I go to planet mode, then it changes to the proper color. If it did not change, then I would have something like your bug.

MacBook pro, 10.6.4, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M

Shadow, thank you for your attention to this problem.

-I have tried all the permutations of graphics settings, and none of the combinations resolves the issue.

-I also have a 13" 1.83GHz Macbook, like Nuadi. I'm only running 10.5.8

Intel GMA 950:

Chipset Model: GMA 950
Type: Display
Bus: Built-In

Vendor: Intel (0x8086)

-Not all planets look equally bad; for example, I think gas planets are the worst, and storm are not so bad. Moons are also affected, but I don't really care (my biggest concern is that I can't use PI effectively). The giant rainbow squares are planetary rings, so they only appear on ringed planets.

Thank you.

Heya guys,

The reason you're seeing these... interesting... colors is because your hardware does not meet the minimum requirements to play EVE Online with the EVE client. The minimum requirements can be found here, but I'll reprint them below:

Minimum System Requirements:

* The client does not run on a PowerPC (G3/G4/G5) based Macintosh Machines. laptops or Mac Minis equipped with Intel graphics chipsets such as the GMA950 or X3100. Versions of the Macbooks and Mac Minis with Nvidia graphics chipsets are however supported.
* Supported hardware is MacBook Pro laptops, Mac Pro machines and iMacs. All these machines have to meet the following minimum requirements below:
* CPU: Intel based computer with CPU speed equal or greater than 1.8GHz
* OS: OS X 10.5.8 or later.
* Video: ATI X1600 or NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT or higher with 128 MB of Video RAM
* RAM: 1024 MB or more
* HD space: 6.0 GB
* Network: 56k or better Internet connection


Recommended system configuration for running EVE Online:

* CPU: Intel based 2 GHz or better
* OS: OS X 10.6.2 or later
* Video: ATI HD2600 PRO or NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
* RAM: 2 GB
* HD space: 6.0 GB or more
* Network: Broadband Internet connection


Do note that MacPro computers allow changing graphics cards
