I cannot get past the login screen either, a box shows up to say:

It seems the Duality server is not hooked up with the most recent account data.

Same issue still, sure hope they do a new mirror soon. :(

Hi All,

I really would like to try it out,
i have installed it and is running... the only problem is that i cannot login; any help on this?

thanx really appreciate your work guys!

Ok,
i got in... for whoever has the sameproblem try using a older password, (even if is 3 months old) it worked with me.

now, i am pretty exited to see all this new things but on my laptop which supports 3 client of eve everything is running super slow. At First, the loading time once connected or docking is around 2 minutes, which is a huge long time if you are trying to make things fast.

my configuration is:
intel T7400 2.16-2.17
4 Gb DDr2
256 Video card
(remember is a laptop)


I setted everything on LOW except the texture quality which i left at HIGH.
Inside the CQ i have something around 2-3 FPS which makes it quite impossible to interact with. I could not access the balcony as if there was a wall which would not let me exit.
With that configuration i would rate it 1 that is on either performance (graphic and overhall).
Even in space is very slow might be 7-8 FPS. and the HUD is blinking.

I turned the texture to medium and in Space everything started to run better around 18-20 FPS, the HUD still blinking though.
The CQ, when finished loading i found myself in the balcony so that now is working. FPS raised to 6 which at least makes me able to try to interact.
After trying to really interact i have to say sadly that still impossible.
Overhall and graphic performance still 1.

I turned finally texture to LOW.
In space FPS raised a little more 23-25. Loading time still huge around 2 minutes.
CQ still very slow 7 FPS. that makes really tedius.

I really appreciate all this, i mean it. Is very nice and looks great but i cannot stop being concerned about the fact that i might not be able to play it anymore after the patch with this laptop.
buying another pc is for now out of question especially thinking that i run well 3 accounts at the same time right now.
I hope the final version will be much more fast than now otherwise i am sure that a lot of people will find themself in a position where they cannot play :(.

Still GREAT Job... but please do something for our older pc.

cheers

1. Rate the graphics performance (framerate, UI lag, etc)
Performance was good on an ATI Radeon 4850, but my card was running pretty hot. I realize you haven't optimized the code yet so 4. The walk from the cabin to the ship will quickly become tedious I imagine.
I really liked the info screen, epic win. There were some white body parts hanging in the cabin. The new crisp British voice kinda clashes with Aurora's old soothing voice. I prefer Aurora's voice. I couldn't get my chap to sit down.

2. Rate the overall performance
4

3. General feedback
I would not buy anything in the virtual store if I don't have the option to see how it looks first.

Overall, pretty sweet. Razz

Probably already requested, but I'd really like to see a way to zoom in on the individual "screens" when sitting on the couch. The text can be pretty hard to read and being able to zoom in on at least the main screen would be awesome. I'm really loving this latest build, I like the way we interact with objects, and I like the little things like the skill training and clone update alerts on the main screen.

The lighting is better now and the mirror works. My characters (you know, the thing that's it all about) still look HORRIBLE though.

CCP should at least license a real 3D engine for station part of the game instead of learning how to kill a GPU by assigning it to 5 students.
Carmack can cram better looking 3D environment into iPhone, not to mention better framerates.

1. Rate the graphics performance (framerate, UI lag, etc)
A lot better than previous version, still only 5fps but seems a lot smoother and just about playable. I know it will get better...

2. Rate the overall performance
Docking still take a long time...

3. General feedback
Looked at the crash course for Amarr
1. the rookie ship does not have a miner (so need to buy one of market to start the industry training - the first mission of which provides a miner on completion).
2. stuck with trying to start manufacturing job, the system does not provide a quote - a bug???

Cloaking taken to next level

Happens every time i load the game. After undocking -> docking only forearms are transparent and there is strange semi transparent shell around waist - not visible when shirt is on top of pants.

Graphic performance :

4 for FPS, 2 for glitches, noticed that some of buttons are offset when AA is turned on, especially the one on mirror.

Overall performance:
4

General feedback:
Character creator locks up for few seconds every time i change even the smallest detail making it pain in the...

oh and i saw Rokh Blueprint advert on Tv...but there was Raven spinning next to it ;) . Working as intended ?

1. 2/5
With all settings set to low (or off where possible) I get a framerate of 13 . this is barely playable, the UI is just responsive enough to use, no more.
This is pretty annoying as I can have most settings on high while in space, and get framerates of around 60; I don't want to have to change my graphics settings every time I dock/undock.
I'm getting a graphical bug where some shoulders, neck, and waist are floating in the entrance to the CQ, my character looks fine though.
How do you want me to give you a dxdiag? It's too much to paste here.

2. ?/5
Not sure what you're asking.

3.
I guess it is mildy interesting to sit on the couch and watch the main screen, but tbh it all just seems like fluff. I can guarantee I won't be looking around the CQ to undock, find my fitting window, or interact with my planets(etc.). I'll use the Neocom. I know you're proud of the CQ but I can't help but feel that it's worthless.
From an immersion perspective, It isn't realistic to dock and instantly be fully clothed in your captains quarters, I found this jarring. I would prefer to dock into our regular screen, then have an "Enter CQ" button on the Neocom, maybe with a 30 sec timer which implies your character is showering and dressing. As others have said(not just in this thread), a capsuleer won't get out of his pod at every station, especially when you're only picking up a mod or something.
speaking of immersion, I remember a player asking a question at a past fanfest, about whether or not we'll be able to have a 1st person view for immersion purposes. iirc you said something like, "we'll probably include a feature where if you zoom in all the way, the camera will pop into the characters head". I'd love this feature. If I could set the view to first person, hopefully I wouldn't have to load my character model, and I'd get a much better framerate. (I have no idea if the graphics engine works this way)

All in all I'll be slightly annoyed if this hits TQ in its current form, as I'll have to make sure I hit F10(starmap) everytime I dock to ensure I get proper UI responsiveness.
Even if my comp could handle this fine I still wouldn't use it in it's current form, as to me it's just an annoying way of accessing all the features we already have.

1. Performance, 5 total win, FPS caps at refresh rate just fine, and everything looks good. A few minor annoyances with the windows not dragging properly (or moving when not dragging on the top bar).

2. Overall a 5.

3. The tutorial is great! Will help noobs not be so noobish when they start :). Also, It looks epic! This is going to be a good release, will love the customization of the ships and your person. Looking forward to June 21st!

1. Graphic performance = 4/5 not a hitch after latest graphic driver patch. Had some flickering lights, but no more after patch.

2. Overall performance = 4/5.

3. Overal The CQ looks nice and is loading and playing smoothley. But why can't I run? That, I think, would make the menu on the left side of the screen less nessesary when you are in a hurry. Make's it look more like a shooter 2 Smile
Could not find a screen for the marked, though I might have missed in the awe of the moment.
When I walk towards my ship, it looks really cool, but then i walk over the doorstep and see the entire room going up and down, but the ship isn't. Maybe it is to give a feeling of tinyness, but somehowe it doesn't feel natural. After that the sight is still awesome.

Is your SLi still switched on, after I updated to the beta, the flickering lights went away, I noticed later the Sli had been disabled, after switching it back on the flickering lights returned.

Graphics performance is absolutely horrible! Virtually unusable. I set everything to low just so I could move and look around. Still a frame-rate of around 10/sec. I'm using an Asus M4A78LT-M LE motherboard built in ATI graphics card.
Rating 1 - Terrible

Overall Performance - Hard to tell with the graphics performance - can't rate it.

General feedback? Well the performance is an overwhelming problem for I just get a sinking feeling that when it's released I'm going to find degraded performance for the most basic of in station tasks.

I'm NOT looking forward to the patch if this is what it will be like for me. - Sorry, I wanted to like it - just can't.

Good point forgot to check. The SLI was off after the update. Switched it on again and the flickering lights have returned... Sad

** Note that the Mac installer is available, but the Mac client is not properly supported on this build. If you have bootcamp and can boot into windows, the windows client should stil work though.
Which kind of "not supported" is this?

The "it is guaranteed not to work" kind or the "we haven't tried to make it work and aren't collecting feedback, but if it does work, good for you" kind?



I agree, us Mac users are a growing community! Don't forget about us! Sad

Agreed! My FPS is also bad!

Is this due to it being on a "Testing" server?

GPU - NVIDIA 9600M GT w/ 1GB Dedicated Memory

Would be interested to know if the performance will improve with the released version!

3. General feedback
Look, my laptop is only two years old and I bought it brand new. It runs EvE just fine on maximum settings. However during character creation my computer chugs and struggles to run the game. Even turning the graphic settings all the way down it still struggles.

My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L505 and it handles a LOT of games. But if it's struggling just to run EvEs character creator on the lowest settings, then there's something very wrong. And I'm not the only one experiencing the same problem.

CCP, we NEED the option to disable CQ.

There seems to be something wrong with the coding. It's sloppy, full of errors, and not streamlined. It's very unlikely that CCP will completely fix it before release so many of us players need the ability to switch it off.


+1

Speaking for myself, I have an Nvidia 570 graphics card and I really like the idea of CQ. It runs just fine on my system (even if it makes my graphics card fan noticeably louder), but even I agree that CQ should be optional. CCP's silence on this issue leads me to believe that it will not be optional, and I find that to be really stupid!

For many players, part of the appeal of EVE is the low system requirements. By not allowing CQ to be optional, CCP is effectively abandoning that target market.

Duplicity server is no long accepting connections?

Is the server offline for good or are you going to bring it back?

Doubt it, the new character creator ended up being released per the testing. I just hope that the CQ is usable on a large enough proportion of current pcs, as if it becomes an unpleasant experience it could have a lasting effect on the popularity of the game for new players.

CQ is on SiSi now... I have suggested CCP amend the devblog that they had at the top of the feature page which told you all about how CQ was on Duality and how to connect, given that testing was now happening on SiSi however....

Any how Duality has stopped being the CQ server and gone back to presumably being the Mass test server... Although SiSi was used for the last mass test....
So no idea what Duality is doing atm tbh.
But CQ and the rest of the presumably first Incarna patch is on SiSi.

I would love to test for you guys, but I can't even get onto Duality. Says my password is incorrect, but isn't. I'm guessing a mirror hasn't been done in a while for it?


Having the same ****-off situation with my passwords as well, and I wonder if a better way couldn't have been devised so that no matter which "version" SISI/Duality it is, they reflect our current API for log-ins
