How do I install EVE on Macintosh

The installation experience on Cider Runtime is identical to any Mac OS X installation procedure. In General, Cider Runtime uses a simple drag and drop installation, i.e. into the Applications folder.

  1. Download the EVE Online client. The client will be packaged as a .dmg file.
  2. Double-click the .dmg file.
  3. Drag the EVE Online Icon to your Applications folder.

NOTE: EVE Online may be unstable if run from a disk or installation package.

How to install Eve on Linux

Download the package for your distribution:

The user installs EVE Online using a graphical or command line package manager. On installation a Starter Kit will install program shortcuts and installation configuration files.

On launch, via the Start Menu shortcut or command line, the Starter Kit will download and install all necessary files for the application on Cedega.

Tick the Internet radio button to download the latest Game Package release from the Internet and then click Continue.

Patches are automatically downloaded and applied using the regular Auto-patcher.
How to connect to Multiplicity:

  1. Run the client
  2. Once the log in screen appears type in 87.237.38.51 in the server Combo box.
  3. Enter your username and password that you had on Tranquility the 2nd of October as the mirror was taken from Tranquility at that time.
  4. Click Log in.
  5. Profit?
