Weird EVE glitches


Hi everyone. I've been gone from blogging for ages, although I've been back ingame pew pewing happily.

Today I want to share some cool screenies I've collected for a while. 

Back when I first started the game (with the old mac client and old graphics) I used to get a lot of very strange graphics glitches. 

My mac laptop would overheat, and my graphics card used to produce amazing and trippy visuals. 

It was extremely distracting, especially if I was trying to PVP. Can you imagine trying to shoot someone while this is happening to you? Weird faces are staring at you and ingame items are all surrounding you in a chaotic mishmesh cube you're locked in. 

Believe it or not, I got very used to this and would play like this regularly, until one day it all went away after a new CCP patch/expansion.

I still get some weird effects (the last two pics),  but nothing quite like my psychedelic younger days in EVE. Also, please don't judge me on my crap PVE fits, I was a noob back then ok? :P

Enjoy!
 

Seriously, this one freaked me out the most

I loved this effect, although it was a bit rarer

This type of thing was the most common occurences

I wish we could paint or customize iterons like this

Everytime I shot a missile, the ventrilo man's head would shoot out my kestrel!


Same as before, but the Itunes icons shooting out of my domi :D

This is a common glitch that still has not been fixed by CCP!

My dramiel and my Velator are BFF's


Please feel free to share/link some of your own weird glitches here in the comments!

  1. Man, those are some trippy fuckin glitches. It's like CCP hired Salvador Dali to design their graphics.

    I used to get this one where an entire stargate would be covered with jiggly white bubbles that would shake and slide all over it. But it seems I've lost my screenshots of it :(

  4. Damn. The linux client was bad, but it was never that bad. At least the random textures came from inside eve.
