Quick Fix for waypoints - map not starting bug

2003-05-30 - By Svarthol

Some users are unable to open the world map after setting waypoints. It is possible to set waypoints to the same location many times. While this was thought of as a feature, it has proven to be a bug. It will be fixed in the next patch. Until then you can clear the waypoints you have set using notepad or any text editor. Don't have EVE running while you do this. Open the file "prefs.ini" in a directory named "cache" in your EVE directory. Find a line that starts with the word "waypoint" and delete that entire line. Save the file. Boot up EVE. Note that you only need to do this if you are experiencing that particular bug.

We also recommend that all users delete files whose name starts with "macho" from their cache folder, regardless of whether they have this map bug or not. This force-refrehses the security status displayed in the map. You will only have to do that once.
