This subject has been brought up a million times, and it's being brought up once again. Seeing as i've tried for the last hour to delete the cache folder contents, re-install Eve. re-log about 15 times, trying everything i've read on this subject. NONE of it works. I still have a black screen, nothing goes from there. To be honest it's ****ing me right off. If these bugs don't get sorted soon, people are going to be cancelling there subscriptions and Eve will suffer. I enjoy playing the game, but i don't enjoy being stuck in the middle of 0.1 space which has frequent pirate activity, if i've lost my ship and equipment, you can kiss goodbye to this subscriber. There seems to be no workaround for this bug at all, i've tried everything possible that i've read about so far. Pull your fingers out, and get this problem sorted asap.

SmileWelcome to Eve! Now just dont quit or people will start asking you for your stuff. Very Happy

They would ask for my stuff if i could actually get into the game. I don't want to quit, i like playing Eve. Welcome to Eve? I've been playing for almost 2 months now. I'm not a new guy, but this is about the 5th time this has happened to me. I'm just getting tired of it, i don't expect the game to be bug free. But i want to be able to atleast play the game around the bugs. Where as i can't even get on to tell my corp they're getting some money and good stuff.

i know what your talking about i just got stuck in a station in a 0.1 zone with a black screen. it is ****ing me off too cna't do anything about it can't even report the bug. if i can't get my char back they will lose me too. so if anyone from eve reads this you need to get off your ass and fix this crap. i've been a beta tester since 1995 and never have seen a game this messed up when it has gone gold.Evil or Very Mad

I think I may have found a work-around, at least for some cases (skip to the end if you don't want the preamble).

I was getting really bad lag in Penirgman, taking 10 seconds just to drag something from a cargo can into my ship, that sort of thing. So I tried docking at the station and got blackholed. After relogging a few times I hit alt+enter to switch to windowed mode and for a brief second everything appeared as normal.. then faded to black. The same thing happened when going back to full screen except now it faded to black, brought up and error box, then when I clicked okay returned to normal.. then faded to black. Enough for me to have half a conversation :)

Anyway, at this point I tried turning off the Load Station Environment option. After a few seconds of random progress bar, hey-presto. Everything works again.

It's still lagged to hell, but at least I can play.

Footnote: I've just got out of Amarr space after 3 slow painful jumps and everything seems fine again now so I guess it is just a localised 'black hole' phenomenon.

Happened again while I was in space and again alter+enter fixed it Confused

I cancelled my subscription. I made an Alt character to petition i'm stuck. It happened again, so i made another alt, petitioned it. Happened again, and i can't petition it anymore. So, if i can't report that i'm stuck...they won't know about, screw it, i can't be arsed losing tons of hours because of some stupid bug. I'll stick to online gaming, but not MMORPG's, it's been a good 2 months. Farewell. My ship is still floating in space somewhere :) has 2 x 250 coilguns on it, and i had 12mil in my account :) i'm sure my corp love that!

Well CCP does it again. I am glad to see that I am not alone, but I am also upset for the same reason.
