| CCP Games has announced November 11, 2008 as the release date for the latest

| OS X, Windows and Linux. The expansion, called Quantum Rise, will be a free
| download for all players upon release.



Eve Online Source Code Leaked

,----[ Quote ]
| Full source code for the client for popular MMORPG Eve Online was made
| available recently via BitTorrent on The Pirate Bay. *Along with the torrent,
| the user posts a chat transcript with a representative identified as
| [IA]Morpheus from Eve’s developer and publisher CCP. *In the lengthy and
| scatological exchange, the poster of the source code attempts to get some
| answers about CCP’s much maligned security practices, particularly concerning
| the rife issue of bots and scripting in their flagship game. *The
| conversation was a little less than professional. * * *



EVE Online [now available for Linux]


EVE Online developers outline Mac conversion

,----[ Quote ]
| EVE Online is distributed as a download available from the EVE Online Web
| site. It will be the same for Mac and Linux users. And Mac and Linux users
| will be able to play in the same persistent online universe—
| called “Tranquility”—as Windows users. That means that EVE Online players all
| participate in the same area, regardless of platform. * *


Volunteers Wanted

| We are looking for some volunteers to help us with the testing of the new Mac
| and Linux Clients.


Eve Online for Mac and Linux operating systems

,----[ Quote ]
| Today CCP Games and TransGaming Partner announce to Bring EVE Online to new
| platforms, being Linux and Mac. By the end of this year it should be possible
| to play Eve on a Mac, finally! *
| On linux it was already possible through Cedega or a good configured WINE,
| but now nothing extra will be needed.


about the boot.ini issue

,----[ Quote ]
| Shortly after releasing EVE Online: Trinity at 22:04 GMT on Wednesday, 5
| December, we started receiving reports that the Classic to Premium graphics
| content upgrade was causing problems to players by deleting the file C:
| \boot.ini, which is a Windows system startup file. In some cases the computer
| was not able to recover on the next startup and would not start until the
| file had been fixed. In this dev blog I want to tell you how this happened. * *
| In the weeks leading up to the release of Trinity, one of our concerns was
| how to deliver this update to our players in a very short amount of time and
| to players that might not all have a good internet connection. Significant
| effort was therefore put into making the Classic to Premium graphics content
| upgrade as small as possible at various stages in the process. * *
