What works

All works, with the only known exception being the use of anti-aliasing when running with DX11.

The game is vast, yet it seems to be working perfectly using two accounts and running two game instances in parallel and under a window compositor. One can switch back and forth between the clients and play the game just as well as under Windows. In fact switching between clients happens faster under Linux than it does under when ALT-tabbing under Windows.

What does not

- In order for it to run does WINE require to be set into "Windows XP"-mode (see winecfg). The current default of "Windows 7" does not work for EVE Online.

- It runs fine including the use of anti-aliasing when set to use DX9, but when set to DX11 does one have to disable anti-aliasing or the game will show a black screen after login.

- Some window compositors can cause screen tearing with the NVIDIA driver, but this can be resolved by forcing the NVIDIA driver to enable a composition pipeline (see NVIDIA settings).


- Setting WINE to "Windows XP"-mode.

- Using DX9 over DX11 when anti-aliasing is required.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO - Eve Online install on Linux

You will need to disable Direct3D v11 support
Run winecfg and select -> Libraries -> [New override for library: ] d3d11 -> Add -> Edit... -> Disable

You will need to install a number of required libraries with winetricks.

  •  "winetricks corefonts d3dx9_36 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010" if this does not work try:
    • wget
    • chmod +x winetricks
    •  "./winetricks corefonts d3dx9_36 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010"
  • wine msiexec /i EVE_Online_Installer_*.msi

Virtual Desktops

Most testers report that Eve runs best in full screen mode in a virtual desktop, however as of wine 1.5 many users report that windowed mode is stable.  If you are using wine 1.4 you can set the virtual desktop mode via winecfg or create a script to run Eve.  Most people put the script in ~/bin/eve.bash or /usr/local/bin/eve.bash.  Note that 1920x1080 should be your desired resolution.



$WINE explorer /desktop=eveA,1920x1080 "c:\program files\ccp\eve\eve.exe"

Then run;

  • winecfg
  • Make changes to winecfg according to other HOWTO to get game running
  • chmod +x /~/bin/eve.bash
  • eve.bash to play

If you are running wine 1.5 you may find it simpler to use  windowed mode.  If you wish to run multiple clients with wine 1.4 it's recommend that you create additional script for each instance, and change "desktop=eveA" to "desktop=eveB"...  You will also need to change the settings eve launcher settings so that it does not relaunch itself.

Creating a new wine prefix

If you need/want to use wine different instances of "windows" for Eve.  (Important if you have a lot of games with various installed dlls, and overrides that conflict.)  Creating a new prefix is simple create the directory and add the WINEPREFIX to all wine and winetricks commands.

  • mkdir ~/wine_games
  • add "WINEPREFIX=~/wine_games/wine-eve" to all wine and winetricks commands.

Some users prefer to have multiple wineprefixes for each eve client, but this is not required.

Tips and Tweaks
1) Sound historically has been problematic for many posters in the past..  If you are crashing be sure to turn it off to see if it's causing issues.

2) If you are crashing during play you may find that reducing your graphic settings will help.  This is vital if you have an older card, low amounts of memory, and/or run a lot of clients.

3) DirectX11 support in Wine is potentially a long way off, so make sure your client is using DirectX9.

Note's for AMD Catalyst users
1] Catalyst is actively setting constrains on Wine [BUG =]
Is under investigation by the AMD, workaround below;

cp /usr/bin/wine /usr/bin/Emulator or something else, though please note that this under investigation and may introduce bugs that AMD may have tried to workaround with that ugly fix.

2] Seems that explosions from missiles and other effects have some corruption on the ships.
Workaround, enable Anti-Aliasing >= Low in options.

3] Rendering and GLSL errors when shaders on High
Catalyst 12.6 and older will have issues on High shaders. Later versions should have this fixed when released. [NOT FIXED in 12.8]

4] Freezes
Catalyst may freak Xorg out sometimes during login screen. SSH into the computer and killing the Wineprefix that the game was running may return the computer to usable state without the need of hard reboot. There is also a big chance that the game rendering will crash on first launch. UI works but you cant open menu's or drag ships or undock. Restart client if this happens.

Other workaround would be to have a script executed to kill the Wineprefix with a delay if not terminated.

5] Catalyst 12.9 beta2
This driver seem to have better and more stable performance, no more degrading over time nor crashing as much as it did in the ones before. However it got some drawbacks as in not rendering previews of ships, drones and gates and performance dies when running the game with HDR enabled.

HOWTO - Eve Online on FreeBSD 11.x 64bit

You need to use 'root' user in all steps, later of installation you can run wine as normal user

1) Get a 32 bit copy from :

2) Mount your 32 bit DVD of FreeBSD and install the base system, related 32 bits libraries and source code, copy Xorg  (necessary to compile nVIDIA driver) packages and download NVIDIA driver 32bits:

        # mkdir -p /compat/i386
        # cd /compat/i386
        # mount -t cd9660 /dev/`mdconfig -f [freebsd_32_bit.iso file] ` /mnt
        # cd /mnt/usr/freebsd-dist
        # sh
        # export DESTDIR=/compat/i386
        # for file in base.txz src.txz; do (cat $file | tar --unlink -xpJf - -C ${DESTDIR:-/}); done

        DESTDIR variable could be different on your system, the idea here, is put the correct path to your copy of FreeBSD 32bits

3)  Mount dev directory in the i386 enviroment:

        # mount -t devfs devfs /compat/i386/dev

4) Copy your /etc/resolv.conf to /compat/i386/etc

        # cp -v /etc/resolv.conf /compat/i386/etc/

5) Copy your ports from Host's system inside 32 bit chroot's enviroment :

        # cp -vr /usr/ports /compat/i386/usr/

6) Now do a chroot on /compat/i386 (as root) and change to "sh" shell:

        # chroot /compat/i386
        # sh

7) Edit /etc/rc.d/ldconfig and add /usr/local/lib to system library:

        Before :

        if [ -x "${ldconfig_command}" ]; then
            _LDC="/lib /usr/lib "
            for i in ${ldconfig_local_dirs}; do
                    if [ -d "${i}" ]; then
                            _files=`find ${i} -type f`
                            if [ -n "${_files}" ]; then
                                    ldconfig_paths="${ldconfig_paths} `cat ${_files} | sort -u`"

         if [ -x "${ldconfig_command}" ]; then
            _LDC="/lib /usr/lib /usr/local/lib"
            for i in ${ldconfig_local_dirs}; do
                    if [ -d "${i}" ]; then
                            _files=`find ${i} -type f`
                            if [ -n "${_files}" ]; then
                                    ldconfig_paths="${ldconfig_paths} `cat ${_files} | sort -u`"

    This is necessary because some libraries installation path is located in /usr/local/lib and later Wine' configure don't detect them

8) Inside of chroot (/compat/i386) do the following:

        # /etc/rc.d/ldconfig start
        # setenv MACHINE i386 && setenv UNAME_p i386 && setenv UNAME_m i386
        # pkg install gsm mpg123 speex xorg wget flex help2man jpeg lcms bison libGLU libXi  libXrandr libXcursor
        # cd /usr/ports/graphics/libosmesa && make install clean
        # mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/man/man1 && mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers

9)  Now we will install the NVIDIA driver 32 bits version inside Chroot current version is 390.48, your 64bits OS and the chroot environment should be the same driver version, this is very important, if you install different version, Wine won't run  :

        # cd /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver && make install clean
        [Important : Don't check Linux support option]

10) Now is time to build Wine :

        # cd /usr/ports/emulators/wine-devel && make install clean

11) Now we will exit from chroot :

        # exit

12) To run apps with wine we need first complete fonts apps dependency, normally Arial fonts. to do this will install in outside chroot, cabextract (as root):

        # cd /usr/ports/archivers/cabextract && make install clean
        # download Arial family letters from [to_a_folder]
        # cd [to_a_folder]
        # cabextract *

13) Move the fonts to right place :

        # mv -v Ari*  /usr/local/share/fonts/TTF/

14)  Open a terminal  and put some aliases:

        # alias winecfg="LD_32_LIBRARY_PATH=/compat/i386/usr/local/lib:/compat/i386/usr/X11R6/lib PATH=/compat/i386/usr/local/bin:$PATH /compat/i386/usr/local/bin/winecfg"

        # alias wine="LD_32_LIBRARY_PATH=/compat/i386/usr/local/lib:/compat/i386/usr/X11R6/lib PATH=/compat/i386/usr/local/bin:$PATH /compat/i386/usr/local/bin/wine"

15) Run winecfg and configure the rest as always or with your preferences.

16) Create the symlink to the new fonts  installed in step 13 in  ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts :

    #  ln -s /usr/local/share/fonts/TTF/Ari* /home/$USER/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts/

17) Run your win32 application as always.

17.1 To install EVE run:

wine msiexec /I (filename).msi

New launcher broken
by Evil on Thursday February 4th 2021, 17:50
Looks like a new dll override may be needed for the newest launcher:

Unhandled exception: unimplemented function msvcp140_1.dll._Aligned_get_default_resource called in 32-bit code (0x7b00fd36).

Hmmm... overriding that dll fixed the crash, but now it hangs at "Please wait. Checking GUI version... [RETRY]". There appear to be a couple of missing MS dlls now...

Have you (or someone else) found a fix for this?
RE: New launcher broken
by Evil on Saturday February 20th 2021, 17:35
It appears to work if you backlevel to an older version of wine. I decided just to sidestep the problems and consolidate my games by installing EVE via Steam, copying all my profiles over from my old install, then forcing the Steam Compatibility setting to Proton 5.0-10 (which I believe still uses wine 5 + dxvk).

I'm also experiencing the same issue since the new eve launcher was released with wine 6.0 through 6.2 on Arch Linux.
Launcher keeps cycling
by Don on Monday October 12th 2020, 16:36
Im using Manjaro KDE running eve thru Lutris with DXVK and esync. The launcher updates fine but i never get to the login parts. I keep getting a continuous CCP circle like its trying to connect to the servers or something. My other pc/laptop is running Manjaro Gnome and it works flawlessly. I cant figure out what the heck is going on. Any ideas?

wine-staging-4.12.* black screen
by N. Andrew Walsh on Saturday July 13th 2019, 4:26
I can use the 4.11 wine-staging fine, but any version of the 4.12.* branch (including the 4.12.1_p1 version on gentoo's overlays) results in a black screen. UI elements are still interactable, but nothing gets displayed.

My video card is really old (GTX580), so I'm on the legacy (390.*) branch of nvidia-drivers. Is there some change to the graphics support in 4.12.* that might lead to this problem?

RE: wine-staging-4.12.* black screen
by ZeroPointEnergy on Wednesday July 17th 2019, 7:39
There are other games who have problems with black screens with 4.12.1. This could be a similar bug. There is a patch here if you want to check if this is the same issue:
RE: wine-staging-4.12.* black screen
by N. Andrew Walsh on Thursday July 18th 2019, 2:52
whoa hey, that resolved my issue!

I'll add my thumbs-up to the pile.

by N. Andrew Walsh on Saturday July 13th 2019, 4:24
Update: I figured out what this problem is: my computer is water-cooled on the CPU/GPU blocks, and because of this I'd had my fans set to "quiet mode." Not getting enough airflow through the case, some component on the mobo was overheating, leading to the freezes. I turned the fans up (and vacuumed the grilles) and it's better now. Sorry for the trouble.
Weird freezes, requiring hard-reboot
by N. Andrew Walsh on Sunday March 3rd 2019, 10:39
I'm having a recurring problem with the client, running with various versions of wine-staging, going back to 2017. I thought it might be hardware related, being caused by the CPU overheating or something similar, but now I'm not sure. Let me describe what happens:

if I am doing EVE things that are system-intensive, such as Project Discovery, or after a long fleet, or (this week) ratting with smartbombs, the client will occasionally freeze the entire system. The image on the screen freezes, the sound cuts out, the mouse disappears, and the system monitors on the other screen (gkrellm and conky) freeze. There's no way to reboot except with the reset button, and when I do it very often happens that my client settings are lost (UI color scheme resets, chat windows all go back to default, the neocom goes back to default, overview goes back to default, etc.).

I've suspected this is heat-related, but now I'm not so sure. The CPU is an 8-core AMD FX9590, the GPU an nVidia GTX580. Both are on a water-cooled loop with an external radiator. The PSU is a "be quiet!" "pro" 1kw model. The GPU and water loop are from 2008, the GPU from … 2010? and the mobo/CPU from 2014-ish.

I'm currently using wine-staging 4.1 and nvidia-drivers 390.116 (legacy drivers because the card is old). OS is gentoo Linux, so everything is semi-beta releases. Kernel is 4.20.12.

Any guesses what might be causing this? Is it the client? Something wrong with my setup? Old hardware?

3.18-staging works without winetricks
by Scott Howard on Wednesday October 17th 2018, 15:59
I installed and ran eve online without doing anything besides creating a 32 bit wineprefix.

WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32-eve winetricks list-installed
Using winetricks 20180815-next - sha256sum: 471c399684fc89391f05d4ab461f8ec502c8868e40266c14754de107ba461b0e with wine-3.18 (Staging) and WINEARCH=win32
warning: /home/showard/.wine32-eve/winetricks.log not found; winetricks has not installed anything in this prefix.

Works in Windows 10 and XP. DX9 and DX11 works, but DX11 is missing some shader stuff, but maybe it's just my driver.

There is a bug in the launcher:
Basically if you leave the launcher open, there will be a file descriptor leak that will eventually lock up the wineserver after about an hour or so. Simply close the launcher after you start the client, and the bug goes away.
RE: 3.18-staging works without winetricks
by N. Andrew Walsh on Wednesday October 24th 2018, 7:56
what shader stuff is missing for you, and since when? I have been missing a bunch of shader stuff since I installed wine-staging-3.17 on 8th of October. I'm now thinking of downgrading back to 3.16 to get explosions, suns, atmospheric effects, etc. looking right again.

Is there a bug on the wine project for looking into this? Anybody else having the same problem?


RE: 3.18-staging works without winetricks
by N. Andrew Walsh on Thursday October 25th 2018, 0:51
Update: in the patch notes for wine-3.17, I see the following two additions by Józef Kucia:

wined3d: Derive allowed shader versions from the current feature level.
wined3d: Add GL_ARB_shader_viewport_layer_array extension.

and these two from the same dev in 3.16:

wined3d: Add support for 1D UAVs in shaders.
wined3d: Use >= for shader model checks in feature_level_from_caps().

So maybe I should get in touch with that dev and ask him if he could look into it.
Wine-3.11 (Staging)
by Aaron on Tuesday July 3rd 2018, 6:16
Just posting a report that I encountered issues attempting to run the launcher in stable release (unable to provide exact errors right now), however Staging release is running very smooth 5 hours in and no unexpected crashes.
Launcher is a bit buggy under Wine.
by Evil on Monday June 4th 2018, 15:57
I've been playing around with the Native vs. Windows launchers recently. The following are my observations of the current state.

Native (Linux) Launcher:

- I've noticed that if I run the clients in DX11 mode (using either plain Wine3.9 or via DXVK) the native launcher will start pegging out one of my CPUs for now apparent reason. Also, it will occasionally leak memory. I've seen it leak 32GB in a period of 3+ hours. Sometimes it will leak about 16GB, then 'reset' when something cleans up.

- Launches consistently and is really stable; never crashes.

Windows Launcher:

- Doesn't have the CPU/Mem bug seen in the native launcher.

- Won't launch at all unless you set winecfg to WinXP... support for which is being deprecated. This is due to bug 38960 (

- Sometimes verrrrry unstable if you run the game in DX11 mode. It will crash (putting nothing obvious in the console) and cause all launched game clients to hang up some time shortly thereafter. The clients seem to keep in communication with it to queue shared downloads or something. It's hard to say if this is a wine, driver, or dxvk problem from my limited testing, as I've been udating/changing all of these things and it seems to be working so far today (nvidia 396.24.02, dxvk-master 0.53+15 commits). Note, this even happens if you disable "Allow Flipping" in the nvidia OpenGL settings, which fixes some other hangs/crashes.

- Frequently presents a blank "white" window with nothing but the windows controls visible. It may work fine on the next launch, or it might get stuck and have this happen every launch. If it gets stuck, clear the Qt webengine cache (rm -rf {your wineprefix path}/drive_c/users/evil/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/CCP/EVE/cache/QtWebEngine/Default/*') and it should work on next launch.
Before I submit a garbage rating...

Just okay, not specatular. Some tips getting the "native launcher" to work from the Eve Online forums.
by Bob on Sunday February 11th 2018, 5:11
Even with all of the tips on here Eve runs "okay" at best. Be prepared to deal with screen artifacts and performance drops that are not present when run on native Windows. Making sure you use a 32-bit prefix helps performance but don't expect much.

Additionally, CCP released a launcher that currently works with some tweaking required. This installs its own version of wine which may/may not work for you. Results appear to vary from running okay to not at all with this custom version of wine. If you want to try it, get the Linux launcher from the forums. To improve performance somewhat/get it to actually work these days, linking your native Qt libraries instead of using the supplied ones does help. Steps below to do this on Ubuntu flavors, adjust to suit the paths on your distro:

* Remove Qt library files from evelauncher folder and symlink your system libraries*

$ cd evelauncher
$ rm libQt5*.so.5 QtWebEngineProcess (Those are the symlinks the launcher is bound to)
$ ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5*.so.5 . (Or fix your system’s Qt Path accordingly…)
$ ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/libexec/QtWebEngineProcess .
$ rm -r plugins/
$ ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/plugins/ .

* Add Locales files *

$ mv resources resources.old
$ ln -s /usr/share/qt5/resources .
$ ln -s /usr/share/qt5/translations .

Then you’re all set, and you can launch the launcher with the simple:
$ ./

Note, as mentioned, the Eve launcher downloads its own version of Wine which as of recently has issues. You need to install the Windows launcher using Wine to get it to use your system wine version or set up the folder paths manually appropriately to replace it.
Launching crashes the launcher.

Just use windows XP in wine not windows 7 as by default.

Migration from ArchWiki
by Svito on Saturday December 23rd 2017, 19:22

You can incorporate useful bits from this into HowTo / Notes and delete the comment:

''EVE Online'' is a space-based, persistent world [[Wikipedia:Massively multiplayer online role-playing game|massively multiplayer online role-playing game]] (MMORPG) that is renound for its scale and complexity. It features free-to-play and pay-to-play versions--the pay-to-play version unlocking additional ships, skills, and training bonuses. Both versions access the same characters and assets belonging to the player.

There is no Linux client program for EVE Online. The game is installed with the ''EVE Launcher Setup'' (a Windows program) run under [[Wine]], the ''win''dows ''e''mulator. The ''EVE Launcher'', once installed (also a Windows program, under Wine), authenticates the player then starts the game proper. An internet connection to the EVE Online servers is maintained throughout play. The purpose of Wine is to translate the Windows API calls made by the install and game programs into compatible Linux API calls, on-the-fly as the programs run.

== Requirements ==

=== Installing ===

* Internet connectivity
* Familiarity with [[Wine]]
* A [[Desktop environment]]
* The 32-bit version of your graphics driver, as listed in the ''OpenGL (Multilib)'' column in [[Xorg#Driver installation]].

=== Playing ===

* Internet connectivity
* Patience; be prepared for a steep learning curve if you are a new pilot.

== Installation ==

=== Install packages ===

# [[Install]] the {{Pkg|wine-staging}}, {{Pkg|winetricks}}, and {{Pkg|samba}} packages.
# [[Install]] the {{Pkg|lib32-alsa-plugins}}, {{Pkg|lib32-gnutls}}, {{Pkg|lib32-gst-plugins-base-libs}}, {{Pkg|lib32-libldap}}, {{Pkg|lib32-libpulse}}, {{Pkg|lib32-libva}}, {{Pkg|lib32-libxml2}}, {{Pkg|lib32-mpg123}}, {{Pkg|lib32-openal}}, and {{Pkg|lib32-v4l-utils}} packages from the official [[multilib]] repository.

: {{Note|You do ''not'' need to [[start]] or [[enable]] the {{ic|samba.service}} file installed from the {{Pkg|samba}} package; no further configuration of [[Samba]] is required. Wine requires the {{ic|/usr/bin/ntlm_auth}} program which is provided by the {{pkg|samba}} package.}}

=== Prepare the Wine configuration ===

In this section, you will prepare a fresh ''Wine configuration'' suitable for installing the EVE Launcher ''into'' (as described in the next section).

; Wine configuration: Background: An arbitrary Windows program running under Wine needs routine access to a minimum of files, such as Windows support programs, native and emulated .dll's, registry entries, and so forth. On the first invocation of Wine, these files are copied into a "working" directory (typically at {{ic|~/.wine}}) in an arrangement that mimics a native Windows filesystem. An ''application'' such as the EVE Launcher is then installed into this minimal Windows filesystem by its setup program also run under Wine. At this point Wine can run the EVE Launcher in its proper filesystem context. Together, all this data comprises a single ''Wine configuration'', particular to zero, one, (or more) Windows applications installed and runnable therein.

==== Set environment variables ====

'''If you have no other Wine configurations''' (i.e. this is a clean install), the environment variables {{ic|WINEPREFIX}} and {{ic|WINEARCH}} will not be defined--their defaults being {{ic|~/.wine}} and {{ic|win64}} respectively, and you can '''skip to step 4'''. Otherwise '''read on'''.

# Select a location in your filesystem to store the Wine configuration: a location that you have access to, is persistant, and doesn't contain any files. It should be a directory, but it doesn't have to exist yet--Wine will create it if it doesn't exist. Note the ''path'' of this location.

:: {{Warning|It would be unwise to select an ''existing'' Wine configuration and attempt to install the EVE Launcher into it unless you know what you're doing; better to start with a "clean slate".}}

: 2. Set the [[Wine#WINEPREFIX|WINEPREFIX]] environment variable to the ''path'' you noted in the previous step.

:: {{bc|1=export WINEPREFIX=''path''}}

:: The value of {{ic|WINEPREFIX}} is the path to the configuration that Wine will use at runtime. If {{ic|WINEPREFIX}} is not defined {{ic|~/.wine}} will be used by default. A generic Wine configuration will be generated automatically at this path if it is empty, or updated if it contains files.

:: {{Tip|If you periodically redefine {{ic|WINEPREFIX}} to run other Wine configurations, you would be wise to verify that {{ic|WINEPREFIX}} is correctly set to the EVE Online Wine configuration path prior to starting the game.}}

'''If you have no win32 Wine configurations''' the environment variable {{ic|WINEARCH}} will not be defined, the default being {{ic|win64}}, and you can '''skip to step 4'''. Otherwise '''read on'''.

: 3. Ensure the [[Wine#WINEARCH|WINEARCH]] environment variable is not defined (or is set to {{ic|win64}}).

:: {{Note|EVE Online requires a 64-bit Wine configuration.}}

:: {{Tip|If you periodically set {{ic|1=WINEARCH=win32}} to run Windows programs in 32-bit Wine configurations you would be wise to verify that {{ic|WINEARCH}} is correctly set to {{ic|win64}} (or undefined) prior to starting the game.}}

==== Create the minimal configuration ====

: 4. Generate the minimal Wine configuration.

:: {{bc|$ winecfg}}

:: Generation will take place followed by the appearance of the {{ic|Wine configuration}} window.

:: {{Tip|Wine writes ''alot'' of diagnostic messages to {{ic|stdout}} which you can safely ignore unless you experience problems.}}
:: {{Tip|If you have [[Firejail]] installed and the {{ic|Wine configuration}} window does not appear, see [[#Firejail incompatibility]] for a resolution.}}

: 5. On the {{ic|Applications}} tab, click the {{ic|Windows Version}} drop-down box and select {{ic|Windows 10}}.
: 6. Click {{ic|OK}} to accept changes and close the window.

:: {{ic|winecfg}} will exit.

==== Add supplementary components ====

: 7. Download and install the suplementary runtime components needed by EVE Online into the configuration using {{ic|winetricks}}.

:: {{bc|$ winetricks corefonts vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010}}

:: The components will be downloaded and you will see a series of dialogs asking you to confirm each installation.

: 8. Confirm each.

:: The components will be installed into the Wine configuration, then {{ic|winetricks}} will exit.

=== Install EVE Online ===

Download the [ EVE Launcher Setup program].

{{Note|The setup program's filename will in the format {{ic|EveLauncher-''nnnnnnnn''.exe}}, where ''nnnnnnnnn'' is the release number.}}

Run the EVE Launcher setup under Wine.
$ wine EveLauncher-''nnnnnnnnn''.exe

You will be presented with a series of dialogs where you can customize the installation of EVE Online. Accept the defaults or customize. Click {{ic|Finish}} and the EVE Launcher setup will exit.

== Play the game ==

Ensure that {{ic|WINEPREFIX}} and {{ic|WINEARCH}} are not defined, or defined appropriately.

Start the EVE Launcher:
$ wine start 'C:\EVE\eve.exe'

Login with your EVE username and password, or create an account. Accounts are [[Wiktionary:free as in beer|free as in beer]].

{{Note|Everytime you start the EVE Launcher, it will verify that your EVE game software is up-to-date. If it needs updating, it will download and install file "bundles" automatically with no action necessary on your part. Game updates happen frequently (several times a week on average).}}

{{Note|The ''first time'' you start the EVE Launcher, it will download and install a large number of "bundles" taking 1-5 minutes depending on your network bandwidth.}}

== Tips and tricks ==

* If you experience "stuttering" in the graphics during scenes with many redrawings, try lowering the rendering quality to better suit your hardware and drivers. Pressing {{ic|Esc}} at any time during the game will display a panel where you can adjust these settings.

== Known issues ==

=== Game freezes during play ===

==== Symptoms ====

* Multi-second game "freezes" on a multi-core processor.

==== Resolution ====

When starting the EVE Launcher, prefix the {{ic|wine}} command as in the following:

{{bc|$ taskset -c0 wine 'C:\EVE\eve.exe'}}

This will force the EVE process to stay on one processor core only, preventing slow migration from core to core.

{{Warning|This will decrease game performance and is not recommended unless you are experiencing freezes.}}

=== Firejail incompatibility ===

As of September 2017, the default [[Firejail]] ''profile'' for Wine is incompatible with EVE Online. If you install {{Pkg|firejail}} subsequent to installing {{Pkg|wine-staging}}, the Firejail configuration process may create a symlink {{ic|/usr/local/bin/wine -> /usr/bin/firejail}} that automatically "sandboxes" Wine with this profile. From this point forward, EVE Online will no longer run.

==== Symptoms ====

* {{ic|winecfg}}, {{ic|winetricks}}, and {{ic|wine}} produce messages to {{ic|stdout}} then halt, with no game or configuration windows appearing.

==== Resolution ====

# Delete or rename the {{ic|/usr/local/bin/wine}} symlink so {{ic|$ wine}} correctly runs {{ic|/usr/bin/wine}}, bypassing Firejail entirely.

The latest test results [1] are for a custom build of wine provided by CCP. This isn't really supported by wine, and should not be included as wine appdb test results.

by Maquis196 on Wednesday October 18th 2017, 11:36
Ah I see, I'll remove it.

Haven't touched it myself, thought it was just some frontend to native wine or something. Cheers for letting me know.
by Hugo Osvaldo Barrera on Wednesday October 18th 2017, 14:09
No problem -- I actually posted this publicly exactly because it's not a well-known details.

As described in Eve's site; the launcher downloads a custom build of wine, and installs Eve onto that. I'm not even sure if it's wine 2.18, or a previous version.

Current state?
by N. Andrew Walsh on Monday April 25th 2016, 15:18
Can a capsuleer (heh) post on the current state of the client? Do the shield/armor visuals still not work? Do you still need to do that winetricks stuff, or disable DX3D11? The notifications I see at the top are, like, two years old, so I'm wondering how valid they still are. Any issues with wine 1.9.x?

RE: Current state?
by Rustam Second_Fry Gubaydullin on Monday May 2nd 2016, 16:38
Console command -> winetricks d3dx9 corefonts vcrun2005
Launcher settings -> Run with DirectX 9 (so you configure EVE, not break wine config)

Shield effects works, can't confirm armor as was flying frigate and got spooked by incoming DPS. Anyway graphics is on the same level as Windows.
RE: Current state?
by N. Andrew Walsh on Thursday June 2nd 2016, 9:56
CCP just posted to their devblog that they're phasing out DX9 support. How much luck have people had running the current client with DX11? Does it work at all?

RE: Current state?
by N. Andrew Walsh on Thursday June 2nd 2016, 11:37
Also, incidentally, CCP just released a native Linux launcher that comes with its own Qt implementation (and I think maybe even its own wine?), which makes it possible to run the launcher directly. I just tried it, and it seems to work fine (though it is hard-set to use DX9, which I suspect will remain the case until they phase it out [which I hope will be the same time wine finally gets DX11 working]).
RE: Current state?
by Rustam Second_Fry Gubaydullin on Thursday June 2nd 2016, 11:43
DirectX 9 phase out –
We would like to assure the Mac community that we are aware that the current client is DirectX 9 only. This is something we have been discussing internally and we are investigating solutions. The Mac client is something we will continue to support and _we have been investing in this recently_.

Wine support for Mac –
Make sure your launcher is up to date (version 1016420 or later). Select Preferences... from the EVE Launcher menu and select Wine for the wrapper.

I didn't check yet if you can rip CCP wine build and dispatch into linux distro, but that shows at least that EVE Online is going work via Wine on Macs now. So should be no problem.

Anyway voting for Vulkan.
RE: Current state?
by N. Andrew Walsh on Monday December 5th 2016, 4:27
winehq apparently doesn't notify me of replies, so sorry for the late answer.

Anyway, yes: I'm running the CCP build of the launcher, and it works fine as a DX9 version of the game. But a lot of the new graphics effects (dust clouds, secondary lighting on gates and in stations, some parts of the explosions, etc.) are DX11 only. Looking at the progress page for the win API implementation, it seems as though they're making progress. Here's hoping they get there.

I can't imagine CCP would drop all their Mac and Linux players, tiny a community they may be, so maybe they'll either hold off on complete phase-out until DX11 works, or contribute directly to getting it working. Fingers crossed!

EVEOnline crashes at launcher
by Sorin Istrate on Thursday January 14th 2016, 15:02

After I installed EVEOnline (current version, just downloade) and run EVEOnline launcher, it crashes. Message is "The program QTEngineProcess.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close.We are sorry for the inconvenience".

I use Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa 64-bit and I have wine 1.9.1 from your site. Winecfg is set to Windows 10, d3d11.dll is disabled.

I activated msvcr120.dll in libraries and works like a charm. Also, works with d3d11.dll activated with setting Native Windows, it doesn't work with Native then builtin.

Note about dx9 and dx11
by Alexey Min on Sunday October 18th 2015, 2:10
EVE Online supports dx9 or dx11 backends. On wine (1.7.52) dx9 is working, dx11 is not, so to launch exefile first to configure graphics settings launch it this way:

wine bin/exefile.exe /triPlatform=dx9

there you can set window mode/fullscreen mode, lower graphics settings, and then configure game to use DX9 in launcher settings, and then you can just use launcher to start game.
Installer woes
by Michael on Friday August 28th 2015, 22:11
So the current "how to install" assumes you're installing an EXE, but CCP now offers the installer as an MSI.

wine msiexec /I (filename).msi appears to be the solution.
graphic issues
by andrew on Saturday July 25th 2015, 15:20
apparently there has been an update somewhere between ubuntu, i am using the 14.04 lts, and wine, i believe i am using 1:1.7.44 via synaptic package manager. eve was running fine minus the ingame browser two days ago, but now the video is not right. sometimes it is working for a minute but then i either lose the station background when in hanger and the fps is lagging badly while in space or i lose the ui windows and all right click ablities. the launcher is similarly malfunctioning. i do have the proprietary and tested drivers in use for my nvidia card and i also have done a full wipe and reinstall with no change at present.

Patch 877986 - ExeFile.exe now has stable processor affinity
by evanh on Tuesday April 28th 2015, 7:03
Eve's natural processor affinity has just changed behaviour as of patch 877986, today.

Unless I'm mistaken, Eve's no longer exhibiting what was it's familiar incessant thrashing between cores. I'm not yet expecting anything dramatic in terms of performance/stuttering improvements but it could be a sign that better is to come.
In game browser

Since last month, and the latest release, the in game browser hasn't been working for me. Is anyone else having this issue?
RE: In game browser
by Josh Raymond on Sunday April 5th 2015, 16:07
Try installing winhttp with winetricks (
If this does not help, or you want to avoid using winetricks, try running the EVE repair tool.

I personally have not experienced this issue, however my brother did, both of these things fixed his problem on 2 separate computers.

Window mouse interaction
by Justin on Thursday November 27th 2014, 19:50
I've just installed EVE through wine and I'm having an issue interacting with the windows. Basically it requires two consecutive clicks in the same place before the window registers the click. For example if I have two windows overlapping in the center with the left window in front and click on the visible part of the window on the right the window on the right comes to the front. But then if I click somewhere where the two windows overlap it will bring the left window forward again as if it was the one in the front.

1. Open two windows side by side overlapping in the center
2. Ensure the left window is on top
3. Click exposed portion of right window
4. Click overlapping portion of windows
5. Right window responds to click
5. Left window regains focus and responds to click

This also effects clicking on buttons as you need to click them twice before they will respond. Same thing with dragging stuff you need to click, release, click and then drag.

If anyone can help me with this issue I'd greatly appreciate it.
RE: Window mouse interaction
by gonzo28 on Monday October 26th 2015, 10:36
I was looking for this post beacause I have the same anomalies. Especially when I double click in space the ship is not responding. When right clicking in space I get the camera rotate as if I'm holding down the right mouse button, but I didn't do so. This makes the game almost not playable without any risk.
Eve crashing at entering asteroid belts
by Alexander L. on Thursday September 18th 2014, 2:28
I run into the following to me unexplainable problem:

Eve Online was already installed from playing under linux for a long time, I could start it using Wine under Mint 17 without any problem, and as long as I don't enter captains quarter I can enter the game, undock, fly around, pass jita and gates with lots of other players without any problem.

But as soon as I enter an asteroid belt the game crashes and leaves me on the destkop.

It's definitely a graphical thing, as I don't crash if I open the map while in-warp, then I can sit in the asteroid belt and warp out again. If I don't open the map, it will crash, sometimes as soon as I enter the warp into the belt, sometimes while coming out of warp, sometimes 5 seconds after coming out of warp. Asteroids aren't rendered, I don't see them.

I used the depicted workaround in winetricks, disabled dx11 etc.

I upgraded the default wine 1.6 in mint17 to 1.7.26, no difference. I even lowered graphical settings, though on my current machine (8 gb system ram, ATI 7970 card with 3 GB ram) it shouldn't be necessary.

I would be very grateful for any ideas on where the problem could be located and how to fix it, as I didn't plan on going back to windows.

Black Screen after Login and Character chose
by Experitor on Monday September 8th 2014, 11:39
Today i had a suspicious error.
After log in and choseing my character EVE just started with black screen, audio running and the messageboxes and the menu wehre aviable.
I made no system changes since the last login, forums talking about an DNS problem.
Deffinetly the only thing i changed was the internet access, same provider but other location and IP.
When i changed internet access back EVE started without any problems.

Has anybody made the same expirience?
Is there a soloutin for this login error thing?

System Info:
Lenovo ThinkPad T410, i5@2.4Ghz, 4GB RAM, Intel Mesa chip running with Linux Mint "qiana" via wine 1.7.25
RE: Black Screen after Login and Character chose
by Matthew O. on Monday September 8th 2014, 14:24
I doubt this is related to wine in any way.

There were major connectivity issues on some ISPs to the EVE online servers today. By your own account, a switch in internet connection solved the issue.

As for the audio running and messageboxes visible: did you actually try to use any of the chatboxes? When EVE times out, you usually end it with a visible but non-working interface. If this happens during a session change you also end up with a black screen.

Terminating Process By Request - Returning 0

Eve doesn't quit
by Linubie on Saturday April 19th 2014, 10:01

I am using latest wine 1.7.17 and starting eve like "wine /path/to/eve/bin/exefile.exe".

If I try to quit the game it doesn't quit and freezes, I need to kill all processes related to eve manually to quit the game.

Does anyone face this problem too?
RE: Eve doesn't quit
by mike on Monday April 21st 2014, 4:40
Yes, I'm having this same problem.

The game itself runs fine, both via launcher and by running exefile.exe. When I hit ESC -> Quit Game, console output gets all the way to "Terminating process by request - returning 0" and hangs. I can CTRL+C at console to close the game or kill all the related processes.

I've tried clearing the cache and running the repair tool but the problem remains.

What video card and driver version are you using?

I started having this problem after I upgraded my Nvidia video driver to 337.25. Rolling the driver back to 331.79 seems to fix it, but who doesn't want the latest drivers.
RE: Eve doesn't quit
by Vince Yankey on Thursday June 19th 2014, 16:07
It turns out I was using the wrong video driver for my older video card. The correct driver causes no problems when I quit the game.

Wine's virtual desktop upsetting Firefox on Linux
by evanh on Sunday February 16th 2014, 0:31
I'm getting huge CPU burn coming from Firefox whenever the wine desktop gains focus. This only happens if I've got a Wine virtual desktop running and it only affects Firefox, and possibly Thunderbird, no other Linux apps appear to be affected. Each cycle makes it take even longer. Firefox is locked solid for the duration. Eventually it recovers; after which Firefox is consuming even more RAM. Wine, otherwise, does not do this. Ie: If I run Eve without the /desktop Wine option there is no issue.

I'm guessing it's a Firefox bug. Of note is the memory footprint, Firefox appears to be leaking badly:

Process 2049 - firefox


The process firefox (with pid 2049) is using approximately 2.0 GB of memory.
It is using 2.0 GB privately, and a further 9.0 MB that is, or could be, shared with other programs.
Dividing up the shared memory between all the processes sharing that memory we get a reduced shared memory usage of 1478.0 KB. Adding that to the private usage, we get the above mentioned total memory footprint of 2.0 GB.

Library Usage

The memory usage of a process is found by adding up the memory usage of each of its libraries, plus the process's own heap, stack and any other mappings, plus the stack of its 31 threads.

by evanh on Sunday February 16th 2014, 0:36
As far as I know it's always been that way. It's something I've struggled with on occasion. Usually I just restart Fiefox.

Also, it looks like Eve doesn't need the virtual desktop any longer so many people won't have even struck it.
Error on Launch: attach_process_dlls
by Louis Pace on Saturday February 15th 2014, 0:17
The launcher itself seems to run correctly, except that it will not launch the game. I click Play, the button changes to "Launching...", but then a few seconds later it reverts to a Play button and the game never starts.

I have tried the configuration changes listed in this article, but when I run ExeFile.exe, I receive the following error, no matter what I try.

attach_process_dlls "blue.dll" failed to initialize

I am very new to linux and wine, so I'll ask your forgiveness if I've overlooked something obvious. I did try Google, but I have had little luck. I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and Wine 1.7.12.

Thank you for any help that you can provide.

RE: Error on Launch: attach_process_dlls
by evanh on Saturday February 15th 2014, 4:20
To run Eve I use an icon on the desktop with the following command:
env WINEPREFIX="/home/evanh/.wine-eve-link1" WINEDEBUG=-all wine explorer /desktop=EVE-1-Tranquility,1920x1200 "C:/Program Files/CCP/EVE/bin/ExeFile.exe"

It's the way everyone ran Eve back before any launcher existed. ExeFile.exe is the actual game program. You even get to see the original login this way.
RE: Error on Launch: attach_process_dlls
by evanh on Saturday February 15th 2014, 4:37
Well, there is more than one icon. Each has a command that varies according to the link number. Am able to update all installs of Eve with a single patch. Kind of handy when the game is patched so often.
RE: Error on Launch: attach_process_dlls
by Louis Pace on Saturday February 15th 2014, 9:23
Thank you, Evan. Unfortunately, the best I can do with your example is an immediate crash with no error. I'm assuming that I am still having the same problem, but that the error is not being displayed.
RE: Error on Launch: attach_process_dlls
by evanh on Saturday February 15th 2014, 17:14
Well, Blue is Eve's custom extensions to Python or something similar. So, basically, Eve is crapping out very early on.

It almost looks like you haven't installed Eve within a Wine prefix. If you are trying to run Eve from a Windoze volume there is some extra tricks required if I remember rightly. I don't know what they are though.

You could try running it in a shell without the DEBUG and see what happens. You might get a useful error message.
Wine improved!
by evanh on Friday February 14th 2014, 20:31
I just noticed a recent change in Wine - it now supports restoring an app window on the host desktop. This likely changed with latest release as this niggle had annoyed me incessantly since day one.

Every time I minimised Eve it was a pain to get the window back again. Until now I had to flip between desktops to recover a previously minimised Wine app.
Eve's memory usage
by evanh on Monday February 10th 2014, 6:45
I just noticed someone on the EveO Linux forum point out how Eve appears to have a memory leak. Then someone else fired back that Eve has always consumed 2 GB and has another 2 GB leeway ... which, I'll point out now, Windoze can't actual do.

I decided to do a quick check myself and found, initially at least, that once you're in space the client is using well short of 1 GB, around 650-700 MB with maybe another 100 MB utilised by Wine. So that pretty much agrees with the original post.

Eve presumably does do some caching but I believe I've also observed leakiness in the past myself. It shows up in the speed with which Eve consumes all the RAM. The behaviour had come and gone over the years so it's prolly back at the moment.
RE: Eve's memory usage
by evanh on Tuesday February 11th 2014, 3:41
Just got an interesting glitch where my Kubuntu install of Firefox has picked up some graphic clippings from Eve. Both apps were building their respective windows at the same moment that the glitch occurred.

It's not just an on-screen glitch either, it's stored in Firefox's in-memory copy of WineHQ's AppDB bordering styles. As in each page I open - even starting a fresh separate window, with Eve closed, and go to the main webpage of the AppDB shows the same artifacts.

Here's a snapshot -

Ships, stations and star backgrouns not showing correctly.
by David Ward on Wednesday September 11th 2013, 1:26
Hey guys,

To clarify the problem: ships weren't showing correctly while docked in a station, flying through space or previewing their models from the "Show Info" screen. If you rotate the view so that a large light-source is behind the vessel, you'll see a weird kind of transparent view of the ship without textures, kind of like when it's just coming out of a jump-gate.

There's no pretty background for the star-systems either. Oh, also, scanning graphics don't show.

The problem turns out to be the lack of S3TC texture compression in Mesa and this problem is likely to appear only on select distributions that do not ship with ""

To check whether this is your problem, run eve with MESA_DEBUG set to 1. Alternatively, run wine via strace and grep for libtxc_dxtn. :)

The solution is to rebuild Mesa with USE_EXTERNAL_DXTN_LIB set to 1 and have libtxc_dxtn installed. Check Google, you'll find the sources easily.

If you're running 64bit, ensure that you build the 32bit version of the library with the appropriate compiler and linker flags.

PS: You may have to write a .drirc file that force-enables s3tc compression in your X driver.

Good luck and happy hunting! :)

Staticy sound
by Josh Raymond on Saturday September 7th 2013, 18:23
Game (other than captain's quarters) works beautifully for me. With one small exception.
Whenever theres a massive sound effect (such as warping, or the stargate sounds) I get this periodic like static sound. Almost like the sound driver is breaking every 3-5 seconds. It lasts for no longer then half a second each time, and isn't a game breaking malfunction, but does get rather annoying after a few hours of play.

Has anyone else experienced this and know how to fix it?

Pressing ESC, selecting the Audio & Chat tab, then cycling the Audio Enabled check box clears up the static for me.
Fixing the new launcher
by Timo R. on Sunday May 26th 2013, 17:25
I just found a post on the official eve forums which fixes the new launcher for me:

For everyone who's too lazy to click:

1. install vcrun2010 using winetricks: "winetricks vcrun2010", you need to manually download msxml3 here
2. go to winecfg -> libraries and set from "msvcr100 (native, builtin)" to "msvcr100(builtin, native)"
3. Profit!

No idea if installing msxml3 via winetricks works, too. Installing that msi worked for me.
RE: Fixing the new launcher
by Eric Sandall on Wednesday May 29th 2013, 17:38
That's for the first re-iteration of the launcher, not the new one. I already have vcrun2010 installed and msvcr100(builtin,native). I was missing msxml3, but adding that didn't fix the launcher (mine launches, but I get no username/password form to login with; the left frame is blank).
RE: Fixing the new launcher
by Sam Silbory on Wednesday May 29th 2013, 17:48
Also note that when testing the launcher that sometimes it just works. I was able to patch and started the game via the launcher for the last minor patch, but after exiting I was unable to login via the launcher.
Launcher workaround?
by Sam Silbory on Tuesday May 21st 2013, 16:21
If the launcher is not working try running ExeFile.exe in {your eve dir}/bin. ( generally C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE\bin )

If the above doesn't work try the repair tool.

( generally C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE\repair.exe)

PS- Also note that the launcher appears to be borked for Windows too.
Odyssey Expansion
by Mikael on Saturday May 11th 2013, 12:55

Many of you might know that 04.06. comes the new Odyssey expansion. And with new EVE client comes new EVE launcher. And we wine users were asked by devs to test the new launcher.

The thing is, that the new launcher does not work very well, or sometimes at all. So if I may ask you, can you please test the new launcher and if possible throw your experience here or better to this threat? (Necessary to read the first post before testing)

My testing ended up like this (with dev resposne what she things about those errors)

Thanks for your time.
RE: Odyssey Expansion
by evanh on Sunday May 12th 2013, 1:08

How to get Eve Online working with 1.5.28 and Ubuntu 13.04
by Mark on Friday April 26th 2013, 3:35
Using Radeon's 13.4 proprietary driver, wine 1.5 newest release and ubuntu 13.04. I have managed to get eve working.

The trick is to run msvcr90, disable d3d11, but DO NOT run in a virtual desktop, make sure you have all microsoft corefonts, winetricks, etc. There are walkthroughts aplenty for those. Basically follow any work around for ubuntu 12.10 but again, no virtual desktop, and again the aformentioned library overrides.

I'm not sure why exactly, but the newest release of wine and ubuntu doesn't seem to like the virtual desktop environment.

Hope this works for you. Thanks WineHQ.
RE: How to get Eve Online working with 1.5.28 and Ubuntu 13.04
by Mark on Friday April 26th 2013, 12:00
Have to correct myself. Eve will launch but freeze after character selection and crash. I suspect the d3dx9_36 override but testing with that library override fails to produce any results with any setting. It's much farther then i was able to get before. Will update with results as I go.
Captain's Quarters maybe?
by evanh on Friday April 26th 2013, 21:21
Captain's Quarters is broken under Wine.

Try disabling "Load Station Environment" in the graphics settings of Eve before logging in.

Once you have got into the game in a station you can change back to the ship spinning dock and re-enable Load Station Environment.
EVE - Online Game Ratings.
by Artur O. on Saturday March 9th 2013, 15:58
Hi there, maintainers.

This has been an issue before and is an issue now. When people post testcases you/we should and need to review them before accepting them. We had allot of times where the game got Gold or even Garbage like now accepted to the testcases because people who make those tests don't even bother tho read the guidelines and just post it garbage because "they" could not google or search for a solution.

Sure reading each if there would be allot of them would be troublesome but there are not allot of people submitting the test cases and also seeing a pattern like "silver silver silver garbage" would at least need a frown no?
RE: EVE - Online Game Ratings.
by Maquis196 on Saturday March 9th 2013, 16:09
As long as games have multiple maintainers that will always be an issue. I was the one that accepted the garbage rating because it was what the user experience. We're not trying to buff ratings or artificially keep ratings high.

If its silver, silver, silver, silver and garbage then the avg user will know thats odd are it will work fine. I'd rather accept a garbage rating, then work with that user to work with us in the comments section to fix their issue and then get them to put a new report in (at which point I'll delete the garbage one).

I agree with the Gold rating thing mind, if there is a single issue its obviously not gold :).

Hopefully, we'll get that garbage rating removed, but when the user changes it.

Just my 2pence :)
It used to be gold gold gold garbage
by evanh on Sunday March 24th 2013, 0:50
Garbage is the correct category when the install is a total failure. And there is no doubt people do have problem sorting out their machines. This is usually due to incorrect OpenGL driver install.

As far as I can tell Eve has not become any harder to install nor has it become less capable due to bugs. I'd say the opposite, Eve's performance and features have improved under Wine over the years.

Just to repeat, the rating system, and the guidelines for it, are about ease of getting the app to run, rather than how well it runs.

Other than getting the OpenGL driver working correctly - not an Eve issue, Eve is quite simple to get going.

Gold is still the correct category - as it had been until recently.
RE: It used to be gold gold gold garbage
by Maquis196 on Sunday March 24th 2013, 4:51
There's definitely room for interpretion with the guidelines. Garbarge can be "installs, doesn't run" as much as "doesn't install, so can't run".

It's the same when an install you've been using forever (like my eve online prefixes) suddenly stop working when a new version of wine breaks something, then it's completely acceptable to put in a garbage report.

Bottom line, lets face it, the game is essentially perfect on wine, anyone who plays it knows it. Only CQ is broken which no one cares about yet (yet being crucial, but I have no idea when we'll need to be able to walk around properly). I would argue that for anyone who can't get the game working and who would put a garbage report in, should comment below first to allow us to help get it working. Might be worth a new note?

Fly dangerous :)
RE: It used to be gold gold gold garbage
by evanh on Monday March 25th 2013, 4:16
I was talking about the typical garbage reports, not every possible variant. It usually is due to failed driver installs, or not installed at all.

The test of ratings is: Does it go/run, no = garbage. If yes then how hard was it to get running? The amount of effort is the rest of the ratings.

Which has no problem handling your okay then broken scenario.

As for preferred process of submitting test results, I had no idea they were even reviewed at all. The time to respond to questions could be an issue. I know I don't read the AppDB very often.
RE: It used to be gold gold gold garbage
by Maquis196 on Monday March 25th 2013, 5:33
Well it's not just effort, I have no problem spending hours getting a game working and then give it a gold, its about how close to the windows experience would you get. Silver is for issues that dont affect gameplay; technically lack of CQ doesn't count but theres the crux of the issue, because you certainly can't put gold down for a game that isn't 100% working.

Just add yourself as a monitor, as a maintainer I get email alerts to new appdb posts, and often I'll come in and try to help fix them. In fact you check my maintained list, I do it for quite a few games! (except ones where theres another super even more responsive then me, it normally happens when someone becomes super, then it peters out after a few weeks lol).

Things like discussions on ratings definitely only happen when there are several maintainers each with their own spin on the guidelines :).
RE: It used to be gold gold gold garbage
by evanh on Monday March 25th 2013, 5:56
It's how much effort is required as a guidance to others.

Bugginess is not for the ratings, bugs are reported to Bugzilla.
RE: It used to be gold gold gold garbage
by Maquis196 on Monday March 25th 2013, 9:35
You can add how much effort is required into the notes easily enough but dont forget the appdb is here to inform users how runnable a game is with a certain version of wine and distro underneath it.

At a glance, if you see a game is bronze, you think "not sure if its worth playing on wine, ill dual boot into windows or not play it", the effort required is separate too that. (going by what appdb says it is, not what we want it to be).

Youre right, bugs go bugzilla, but were not talking about bugs.

The fact were having this discussion shows how much scope there is for people to treat appdb differently.
RE: It used to be gold gold gold garbage
by evanh on Thursday March 28th 2013, 4:39
It was you that added bugs in as a topic, not me. I was just clarifying where to put that matter.

BTW, with your position on app usability rather than ease of configuring/installing the app, it looks like you have taken us back to "There shouldn't be any programs listed under Gold or Platinum" position as there will be bugs in every app listed.
RE: It used to be gold gold gold garbage
by Maquis196 on Thursday March 28th 2013, 5:01
There are plenty of games in my maintainer list that run on gold or platinum because they have no noticeable bugs. So yeah actually, that is exactly what appdb is about.

Say theres a bug where eve voice is broken in a specific wine release. Well to me thats obviously at best a silver rating. It would be that simple.

CQ is broken = bug = !gold or !platinum. So silver rating at best. If someone finds that all the bugs add up to a rubbish eve experience then they can put down bronze. That is what the appdb is about.

Not all bugs prevent gameplay, some don't really affect the game at all (like starfleet armada, the menu hasnt got any movement in the background, thats a bug which doesnt affect gameplay).

This whole thread is about garbage ratings, and yes id prefer we didn't have the odd one but im not going to reject one because theyre peoples opinions.
RE: It used to be gold gold gold garbage
by evanh on Thursday March 28th 2013, 7:14
No noticeable ... from first impressions :P
RE: It used to be gold gold gold garbage
by evanh on Thursday March 28th 2013, 7:19
Even using your basis of rating on bugginess affecting usability, CQ doesn't affect the gameplay at all. So, that makes it an easy Gold rating right there.
RE: It used to be gold gold gold garbage
by Maquis196 on Thursday March 28th 2013, 8:11
I do admit, that EVE is a special case because essentially theyre looking at having two games in one. I also agree that CQ has no impact on the eve experience at this point. I'm just saying that the appdb ratings guide (ive been stripped of super rights in a couple of games because I set a game to Gold because it was perfectly playable when the appdb admin considered it Silver) so yeah im more careful then most over it.

I doubt we will ever see eye to eye on this, I do get what youre saying. All my eve test results clearly have at the bottom (or should have anyway) THIS GAME IS PERFECTLY PLAYABLE. Look at it another way, if station environments came into eve tomorrow, the game wouldn't be ready, hence the silver. Silver is most games is perfectly playable anyway, its only bronze and garbage that suck :).
RE: It used to be gold gold gold garbage
by evanh on Monday April 1st 2013, 20:15
I don't know how any app can have achieved either gold or platinum if the admin has the same attitude as Artur.

On the matter of CQ integration into Eve: If tomorrow ever occurs and CQ is a useful part of Eve then, after that, it might be sensible to reduce the rating to silver ... or garbage if CCP gets silly ideas again.

Until the mythical tomorrow, Gold is the easy choice.
RE: It used to be gold gold gold garbage
by Sam Silbory on Monday April 1st 2013, 21:00
A lot of games in appDB would have gold and plat under Artur's terms. Heck I'm a maintainer of 4 games including Eve and the rest are gold or plat under his standards. For example FTL* requires installing vcrun to work, but everything works fine once you do that making it gold. (Of course FLT has a Linux version now.) Eve is much more tricky program to get running, and some things simply don't work currently. This does argue for a Sliver under a strict reading of the rating guideline, which is at odds with the people playing the game on a daily basis with a gold experience of the game....

That said unlike Artur I tend to let people's ratings stand unless the overall rating is way out of line.

PS- Don't worry CCP will break the game this summer and we won't have to argue ratings;-)
RE: It used to be gold gold gold garbage
by evanh on Tuesday April 2nd 2013, 5:05

Wouldn't have a clue about voice though as it is just a bit of fluff. TS, Vent or Mumble are the backbone of action.
RE: It used to be gold gold gold garbage
by Maquis196 on Wednesday April 3rd 2013, 4:03
Just because you don't use eve voice you can't dismiss it out of hand. It's not fluff. It's important for all non-corp and above level fleets. What do you think they use for incursions or FW?

Ship spinning does work, so glad they put that back in.

Lets face it, eve for you works perfectly. Great, I'm glad. It also works for me perfectly, but that still doesn't mean a gold rating :).
RE: It used to be gold gold gold garbage
by evanh on Thursday April 4th 2013, 21:22
Does voice really not work? I've not really had the opportunity to try it.

On a playability scale that would make the diff between Gold and Platinum I guess. :P

All, anyone else here play eve with optriun/primusrun? I run primusrun bash then launch eve. Yet the game still uses the intel card, so as you can imagine, runs like cr*p.

Just wondering if anyone else had this issue? Oh and yes, normally nvidia runs fine through that command, glxgears -info confirms its my nvidia being used as well.

RE: Optimus
by Maquis196 on Monday January 7th 2013, 4:57
Always the way, make a forum posting, stumble onto fix;

Essentially running the game directly with optirun seems to do it;

Go into eve/bin and run optirun env WINEPREFIX=/data/wine_games/steam wine ExeFile.exe.

This launches the game directly (strangely, it didnt want to work with primusrun...). Eve confirms its the nvidia card but you can tell straight away with it not being about 5fps.
EVE under Ubuntu 12.10

I trying to install EVE under Ubuntu 12.10, but not very successfully.
First - trouble with downloading. Unfortunately, webinstaller can`t download needed files and routing me at this page:
I was download this files twice.
Every time I starting to install EVE, but to unsuccessful. There some strange in first and forth windows: and
Last window describe some error, but I can`t understand it.

The next step: I decompressed archives manually. Then I run eve.exe. Loader start checking files, and finally I saw the orange button "Play"!
Thats all! Game are not start in any case. I`ll try difference configurations:

winetricks corefonts d3dx9_36 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010

wineconfig: windows xp and windows 7

msvcr80, msvcr90 and msvcr100 I`ve setting each of in "native, then buildin", and in "buildin, native" states. d3dx9_36 and d3dx9_42 - as native.

In every case the ExeFile error will follow me:

I use next configuration:
AMD Athlon II X3 CPU
AMD HD6670 videocard
Ubuntu 12.10 32 bit
Catalyst 12.11 beta drivers

What I should to try?

D3D11 support is only just starting to be implemented in Wine's bleeding releases and does not work. Games that even test for it will fail unless it is disabled.

Updated notes on the main eve page with this info. I'll update the EVE wiki tonight as well.

I'm trying to get the installer to work, but I've got the 1/2 text missing bug, but the real key is that I don't have an enabled install button, so I can't pull the trigger on the install.

I wrote a hilarious workaround for the t3 bug: Prevent eve from rendering T3s.
