Re: Holy $#%^, EVE Trinity!
The trial period for Vendetta is 8 hours total. That's a major bummer in my opinion. I appreciate how you can fly your ship like you would in Freespace but, what can you really do in it? Does it have a developed ingame market? Can you go mining to make money selling minerals or would you have to go about doing something else? Blah, bla-blah, bla-blah.

I'm really critical of new games that I haven't set my feet into; just want to know if it is worth my time away from EVE.

Re: Holy $#%^, EVE Trinity!
I know you can mine, but I doubt the market is as developed as EVE's. It's more combat oriented, which is a good thing because unlike EVE it's actually fun to kill things. The main issue when I played it was with the lacking variety in the missions.

Re: Holy $#%^, EVE Trinity!
The carrier nerf failed to materialize, and now, behold the shiney! My ship on Sisi, which is running the new client. 's named GTD Messana, in case you're curious, and is the one I fly normally. I just wanted to see how it looked in the new engine, and I was not disappointed. :P

Re: Holy $#%^, EVE Trinity!
I have just downloaded the trail version. Sadly the tutorial allready showed me that I won't have the time that is needed to get into such a complex game. I would love to but without the time to play and the addition of 14bugs each month from my allready short money I guess its out of question.
I still hope that there will be a singleplayer game in the Eve universe that uses the same engine.

Re: Holy $#%^, EVE Trinity!
Yeah, the carrier nerf never came up. I hope some people are glad now.

Nice Megathron btw, just about everything is beautiful now. I tried it out a few hours ago. Hot damn, I can't wait for an upgrade for my laptop (it can't run the new engine, :()

Has anyone seen this? Apparently the new expansion/patch will delete your Windows XP boot.ini file, rendering Windows unusable! :lol:

Re: Holy $#%^, EVE Trinity!
The conditions for that happening were:
a) You had XP or an older Windows OS
b) You had more than one partition
c) You had the OS in a secondary, not primary, partition.

I don't know whether to be happy or sad my laptop couldn't run the shinyness.

No. The criteria was that you were on XP and that EVE was installed on the same drive as your OS partition. The installer was erroneously deleting /boot.ini, it wasn't a direct path so / was seen as the drive root. C:/boot.ini for most people.

The main reason this got by testing was because they probably tested it with EVE installed an a hard drive different to the one the OS was, main reason being that developers love to hard-code paths into things, and doing this breaks that.

The biggest wtf though is that they decided to call a file in thier game the same as a critical system file.

True, I remember hearing about that. Pity it still sucks though.

Meh, I'm sure the devs at CCP just learned something. Don't ever use a boot.ini file in any of your programs.

All things considered, they reacted with commendable speed compared to the other examples cited. :p
