Right before today's update, I had a window with five tabs (journal, people, fleet, assets, cargo)and now I am having issues with that window. Now, when I click on any other tab, it switches immediately back to the assets tab. I tried everything to maybe try and reset the window, and it still happened. When I removed the assets tab and replaced it with a notepad tab, it still happened but after a much longer amount of time. Does anyone know if there's a way to keep it from going back to the notepad or assets tab?
Thanks.

I am having the same issue, but with my overview tab. I have journal, fleet, overview, cargo stacked. When I try to move myself around in fleet, it switches back to my overview. Took me about 15 minutes to figure out that it wasn't my mouse being sketchy.

I also have the same issue. I have my Market tab and Wallet tab in the same window and whenever I buy something it switches to the wallet tab. Same goes for my character sheet and training queue tabs in the same window, after I click apply when adding new skills to my queue it switches back to the character sheet.

I have the same issue...
I have my Overview tabbed with assets. I am mining, and everytime I gain Kernite it switches to assets, but I want Overview so I can see if anyone jumps in. It's really annoying...

Same issue.

Windows are not remembering positions, tabs are not staying put even when pinned. If you dock up, then undock, the tabs go floating over to the upper left corner. I know they said window positions wouldn't be recalled....but even after the patch, they aren't behaving. IF IT AINT BROKE DONT FIX IT, CCP. =fail=

Im having the window issue with wrecks. Its a nightmare salvaging. The wrecks open in the middle of the screen every single go.

I position the wreck window in the bottom right of the screen, but each time a new wreck is opened its dead bang center again!

Well done CPP.

Oh god - that is what is happening to me in both Eve for Mac and Windows. No offence, but I'm so happy it's not just me.

What is really making me suffer right now are my Ships, Items, and chat channel tabs. They're all frequently being untabbed, stacked (in a group, each slightly offset) or moved (to the top left like you!) and having their size changed :-( It seems to happen whenever I restart Eve or move from a view that doesn't display the windows in question, to one that does, e.g. from space to inside a station where my ships and items windows reappear, only untabbed and out of place.

Specific situation, selling an item from the 'Assets' window

After the patch, when you create an open order, it automatically tabs over the 'Wallet Orders' window (every time too). A minor inconvenience for most, but I have a couple traders that create and process 50-150 orders per day (each). So to have it constantly tabbing away from my assets screen makes it tedious to switch back to setup more orders.

Solution: Turn off automatic "open wallet window" Smile

Love,

Same issue... i also keep my drone window and cargohold stacked and ive had to split them now because i cant put anything in my cargohold... Also the wrecks opening in the middle of the screen is annoying as hell... Anyone know of a workaround or a fix date?

Same window problem here.

Doesn't remember windows resize ( even if pinned after resize). So each time i close than reopen window size is back from before i resized it. I have completely deleted my cache files and that does not fix the issue.

Fail patch ! Please fix, it's annoying.

Ok, add me in with this problem. I have several windows stacked and minimized on my screen. Character Sheet, Wallet, People and Places and Journal. When I leave a station they all open, when I return to a station or jump they open. If I Make Active a ship, they open. If I'm exploring and I open a container, they all open.

Also,when I am in combat and I target a ship the Selected Item tab in the Overview will open and close briefly. Finally, on this account but not my other account, when I leave as station the Overview is hidden in windowed view. I have to go to fullscreen and then move the Over view towards the center of the screen and then go back to Windowed mode in order to see the Overview. I've tried clearing the cache on each of my characters but the problem persists. Sounds like we need an update to the update!

I'm sure I don't know what you people are whining for. CCP warned us in the patch notes that they intended to break the UI. Just another way that they've made the game more "challenging." ugh

Great reply, Parmala!

Thanks, CCP, for enhancing my gaming experience! You guys are the best! The UI works JUST GREAT now...I'm so glad I pay for these guys
to patch the game and make handy improvements to it!

Keep up the good work!

Windows are still being untabbed, moved to top left and resized after optional patch (which seems to have done NADA). What the hell CCP?

Dude, I've even manually deleted both the Eve app and Eve's settings and reinstalled Eve. Pinned and unpinned tabbed windows are still being untabbed, moved and re-sized by eve :-( I cannot play like this when my layout is buggered every time I enter a station, which I do all the time.

and? You tryed the repair.exe? it checks for missing files etc and download whatever is missing. And I stated it fixed my Window tab problem. And for the time I have no issue with my windows.

Same problem here, very frustrating. Pinned windows doing their own thing and not remembering their positions.

I have the same issue, it cuts in and out tho. sometimes it loads find with tabs where they should be, other times my windows are all untabbed, and then overview doubles up. maybe roll back the overview changes or something idk. it's all messed up the UI

I'm having the same issues. Windows don't remember their stack/tabbed status after they close/open, some windows seem to forget their last position (ships/items window in station is the most noticeable), and stacking windows on top of my overview results in focus shifting back to the overview whenever I click in the other windows stacked with it.

No, I've not tried the flaky Mac repair tool which is still very much in beta. Frankly if a clean install of Eve is already borked, then it's time to quit before I flush away more subscriptions fees for a game that's almost perpetually bugged in some way or another.

Same here.. all the problems you mention, plus few more of the same kind.. gah, I wonder why they decided to break everything that worked fine before?..

I'm a well adjusted human being, so I can wait for a fix and be patient.. but someone else would probably say that CCP should hang that coder by the balls or do something like that YARRRR!!

*is once again forced to login twice to be able to post*

What ****es me off is CCP won't just roll the game back to the last working version. They don't need to roll wallet balances, loot, rep, etc back. Just roll Eve's version back. Surely that's not unreasonable give how unplayable Eve is now for so many people (take a look at the other really long and rather cranky threads that have since sprung up) as windows shift position and size every time they change views.

But CCP obviously can't admit they screwed up and seem determined to just plough on ahead with us as paid beta testers... well I don't want to test. I want to PLAY, please. I've had my fill of beta testing software lately, thank you very much.

The most annoying part is:

- you loot the wreck and get a wreck popup which is allways icon 3x1 in size Evil or Very Mad

From what I can see with new patch - they changed this setting to respond to refference specific wreck window id, and not the whole object behind it... (what I ment -> if you resize / change printout for certain wreck window, itll stay ok for THAT specific wreck, while that property should apply to all wreck window class).

After Tyrannis 1.1 AND optional patch that was supposed to fix UI issues:
  • Chat windows become untabbed on each login.

  • Wreck windows do not stack like they used to, and do not maintain size position, they open individually, centered and small.

  • While in space, I have drones and cargo stacked, cargo will not stay on top, drones moves to top on any UI refresh.

  • When undocking, right side (from top to bottom is: selected item, overview, drones/cargo stack all pinned) rearranges itself to make room for cargo of new ship, which opens in the right place but not stacked, and pushes other windows away. In fairness, this was happening on the first undocking in each ship, even before the patch. Now though it's on every undocking.


Please CCP, make this a priority and fix as soon as possible. Think of the aggravation of those who have posted and multiply by the thousands who are just logging off when they see this mess. Our game time is precious to us. Spending the first 10 minutes rearranging is fine once, but every login?

I'm just curious -- are you using Windows 7, 64 bit? I have a nagging suspicion that this is related to the complex new set of paths and permissions with the OS.

For instance, I tried to run repair.exe and received an error message that referred to an error log in a non-existent location, but if I followed the path by guesswork/nearest approximation, I found the log file under c:\users\[admin account name]\appdata\temp\[random folder name].

I`m currently running EVE as normal after clearing out many of the problems that is mentioned here.

I cleared my Cache folder. Settings (ESC), select Reset Settings tab and from there you can select to either Clear all settings or Clear all cache files.Note that performing either of these will require you to restart your client.

Run Repair.exe. Note that you should not be logged inn when doing this.

Allsow noticed something was wrong with my Shortcut. So I right cliked and whent on Properties, there I got an error message when I tryed to click anything exept cancel.
So I made an new Shortcut directly from CCP folder to the Desktop.

Havent had any problems after that.
Hope it helps. If not, then I really have no clue. Rolling Eyes

Edit: I`m running Vista.
