EVE online

Postby Jaffod » Sun Oct 17, 2004 7:04 pm

Has anybody played this? I am looking for some other game to occupy me post-EQ and EVE looks awesome.

From what I have seen this game is very different to EQ and I am looking for any pointers/insight before I download it. If it sucks so be it, I will be stuck with the occasional foray into CoH and playing online scrabble. Worse come to worse I could always reup my EQ accounts lol.

Anyway I digressed - EVE info plz0r

Eve is cool but it is also very slow to progress to bigger and better ships.. some skills can take up to 20 days to learn ( RL time). I play it from time to time.

I wanted to try EVE once.

But it looks that the game has trouble with NVidia cards and I cannot get it to work with me unless I fall back to very old device driver.

Well .. if I do that then EVE does indeed run smooth but I get all kind off glitches in EQ .. so it looks like a either this or that decission .. guess who won :)

Hmm I use a Nvidia Gforce FX 5500 and have absolutely np with either Eve nor either of the EQ's or any other program so far. Now the older ones Like Gforce 2 and stuff wouldnt run EQ2 beta and stuff. I do not know about Eve has I upgraded my video card then to be involved in the beta and got Eve afterwards.

I have a GForce2Ti.

Well, situation is that with Detonator6 line it won't work. It will leave a blank white screen where ya got to log in.

It's a known problem and there fix is to downgrate to Detonator5 drivers. With them EVE works perfectly and flawless. But EQ tends to crash when switching between windowed and fullscreen plus blackscreens every here and then .. problems I don't have with Detonator6 driver (well, the very latest Detonator6 driver has issues showing Textures .. also well known. I am using the driver before the latest one (6.1.7.7), works perfectly with EQ)
