I’ve mentioned this before, but thought I’d repost with screen captures after needing to use it again today.
I still find the current launcher – as with the previous one, has sporadic issues. Today there was no login box, instead an unhappy face icon with a tooltip informing me there was a DNS look up error.
If your EVE client is patched and up to date, you can still run the client directly.
Go to the menu icon next to the minimise and close icons, top right hand corner of the launcher, and then select Server List.
This will open a new dialog box and you can simply click “Play on Tranquility” to get the EVE client to run. Today I was able to log in that way even though the launcher log in option was not working.
(The issue was transient and when I logged in later the launcher was working again. I wondered if it had anything to do with the 1900 odd pilots battling each other at the time.)
