But Eve can't. I can't think of any other developer that would dream of releasing software that can't quit successfully. Instead with Eve about 75% of the time I either get an error - exception or buffer overrun - or Eve hangs as I quit, requiring me to force quit it. This has been going on for YEARS. With some patches it's rare, with others like all of Incursion it happens frequently. But it's always present.

I almost always have to quit eve by pressing my power button till the machine shuts off. Is this not the way it is supposed to be?

paracidic, i found the magic of cmd+alt(option)+esc (force-quit) works wonders on saving your harddrive being hardbooted

I am having the same force quit to exit issue. Also, I have found that if you simply log out of your account on the MAC you can fix the 'black screen of death' launch issue.

I wish we had a native client!

It's not a matter of dreaming of releasing, it's a matter of dreaming while releasing.

But well, "Client crash on exit should no longer happen.":

buffer overrun


Atleast this tells me the game has actually quit! Thats what we have to put up with when using ported games, unfortunatly a native written client for OSX will never happen Sad
