Hey guys.

I don't know if I'm asking this in the right place (hopefully I am), but please can you tell me if Eve runs on Vista? I'm planning to get a new PC within the next weeks and it will have Vista on, so I need an answer to this issue.

BTW, I was actually expecting that a popular question like this would be an easy to find in a sticky, but maybe I'm looking in the wrong place...

Yes, it runs fine for me. The deciding factor though is how well Vista runs on your hardware.

Running on Vista Ultimate 64, never had any problems

Running Vista Ultimate Home 64 on a Quad Core with the nVidia 8800 GTS.

Generally, I'm finding that Eve runs great, but there are other important issues to consider.

1.) Vista has some serious issues with mics and sound card compatibility. Lots of Vista users have TS/Vent probs, owing to extremely weak mic signals. I've ordered M$' vista certified USB headset, so we'll see if that solves things a bit. I just lost sound in eve (x-fi card) and then had a CTD. Hoping a restart fixes it, but there are lots of similar issues reported in other games' forums.

2.) Dual Monitors are generally poorly supported in Vista, at least by Nvidia. No stretch/span mode, for one. I actually burnt out a flat panel yesterday playing with multi-monitor setups. Your mileage will vary, ofc, but make sure the video card you buy supports vista. Right now, ATI seems to be ahead of Nvidia in getting things up to spec.

At this point, I wish I'd just gone with XP again and waited to upgrade my OS. Perhaps Vista 32 would have saved me some anguish, but I think the mic prob are endemic to Vista anyway.

EVE runs well on Vista 32 for me. I have Ati 1950 Crossfire and 1900XT cards running in Crossfire (way overkill).

The only issue I've seen is flashing where alpha blending is supposed to take place, like on the cloudy atmosphere that surrounds a planet. Where the atmosphere overlaps the planet, I see parts of the planet randomly appear over the atmosphere. However, I'm pretty sure this exists on my Laptop as well, which runs an nVidia 6800 GPU. It's not a biggie, and hopefully will be fixed with the new graphics update coming for EVE.

Vista64 (Enterprise I think)
Runs great, 65 - 75fps normal systems with 20 - 50 + people in, runs like crap in huge fleet battles, but so does everyone elses Vista and XP.
Corpies sometimes have issues with my sound, but not much, Generic cheap Headphones and Mic do the job.
Dual Monitors runs fine (ATI Card)

AMD 4200 Dual Core
4gb RAM (only 3455mb seen by BIOS x86 architecture issue not a Vista issue)
512mb X-1950Pro-AGP (yep) Laughing
AC'97 Onboard Audio.
Vista loves RAM (its just basic DDR400, nothing special, and not expensive per se)

To be honest, EVE runs better for me on Vista then on XP. Around 130fps in-flight and 250+ inside the station. On XP it was around 120 and 230. Between 50 70fps in huge battles 200+ players. BTW: runs 3 clients simultaneously.

Running on Vista Business 64

Intel Quad Core 2.4
Intel MB D975XBX2
WD Raptor 10K RPM 150GB
4GB Kingston Hyper-X 800
X1800XT 512MB (owns Razz - when ATI was better... AMD messed it up...)

Maxed config on ATI Catalyst

Oh, that was the other thing I wanted to mention. Mic audio, I played LoTR on Vista and some people mentioned my voice was coming in low. It appears the default for Vista has the Mic gain turned way down. If you go into sound options, there's a volume adjustment for Microphone, turn it up and that seems to fix it quite well.

Had a few issues with Vista and EVE...
Solution... turned off User Account Control

(This also turns off the virtual store which is what was causing my issues)
