Entropia VU News: Entropia Universe Version Update 14.3

Discussion in 'Entropia News' started by EntropiaPlanets, Sep 24, 2013.

  1. UPDATE 6: Potentially costly hunting issue

    If you the hunter are aiming by yourself and using the left mouse button (in aim mode) to attack it will feel and behave somewhat the same as before.

    If you are are in third person clicking a target and use your auto-use tool or right/left click to attack you will see that your avatar is moving around oddly.

    Q: Why is this happening?
    A: After implementing a better hit detection there was a side effect, when targeting a creature it chooses the closest thing hittable. So if it is a robot like a Warlock attacking you, the avatar will aim for the head since it is closest to you, then the creature does the attack animations and during that time the avatar tries again to pick the closest valid thing hittable, resulting perhaps in a shoulder or something else.

    Till the fix comes around, use aim-mode and left click to attack.

    UPDATE 5: Login issues

    For users still having problems to login, follow my steps below and see if it works!

    Download setup here - http://www.entropiauniverse.com/download/ -> run setup -> install under current entropia folder -> success

    (Don't worry, it will not remove any content)

    UPDATE 4: Using the 64-bit client

    To ensure you use the 64-bit client start the client loader and click the "Tools" button:


    In the Options tab make sure the "Use 64-bit client" checkbox is checked.


    Click "Ok" if necessary.

    UPDATE X: We'll be streaming 've streamed the new VU:

    Offline - back later this week.

    UPDATE 3: It's back - you can log in!

    UPDATE 2: Info from MindArk

    The new Entropia Universe client is experiencing validation issues. MindArk's development team is working on a solution as quickly as possible, which will be deployed as a client update.

    In the meanwhile, please disregard the "Obsolete installation" error message some of you may have received.

    Please do not re-install Entropia Universe before the next client update is released.

    We apologize for the extended downtime, and appreciate your patience while Entropia Universe is brought back online.

    UPDATE: The download is now available and you automatically get the 64-bit client.

    MindArk and the Planet Partners strive to ensure a smooth and problem-free Version Update. Nevertheless, even after extensive testing some issues may arise after release. Such issues are often addressed via mini-patches directly after a release and in subsequent patches. If you feel that the possibility of encountering minor issues or bugs directly after a Version Update affects your gameplay to an extent that Entropia Universe is not enjoyable, please wait until the mini-patches have been released and any last minute issues have been resolved.

    Reading through the release notes it looks like a great VU (well, probably not for everyone... :evil: )

    But where/how can we download the 64-bit client?

    RAZER Custom title ... uh ...

    interesting to see if the 64-bit client will work any good
  5. Is any of this downloadable yet? I tried an uninstall and reinstall the downloader from their website but it just times out. I assume the update is not ready yet??
  6. Zya


    Download worked, still login time out stating 'down for maintenance'. Rolling restart maybe depending on where one last logged out?

  9. managed to download, but yeah servers offline
  10. RAZER

    RAZER Custom title ... uh ...

    well I was willing to stream the new update, but unfortunatelly I need to get some sleep now. Let hope it will be here tomorrow after work :)
  11. Razer, I know you have a gold card and all, but please keep in mind this has happened before.

    Streaming your login credentials - username and number of characters in your password is a bad idea.

    Someone may try to use a hard cracker to keep trying passwords over and over for your credentials locking you out of the system at some point.
    • Thanks Thanks x 1
  12. ...Just blank out the login credentials???

    Tyvm, but the login "EntropiaPlanets.com" is of course completely made up. ;)
  14. Entropia Universe 14.3 update delayed. We estimate that the servers will be made available again at 2013-09-24 23:00 UTC.

    If you can't log in with the 64-bit client (like me) then you should know this:

    And if you don't want to loose PEDs while hunting due to some strange effects you should know this:

    And if you are MA you should know this:

    Please keep your platform business separate from your planet business once and for for all - please refrain from nepotism.
    Please put important universal information first and only in universal official place - please don't put it in a place that by its Terms of Service ensures people sharing that information are breaking laws (like I did above).

    Skill progress panel

  18. Another fine mess. It's a bit like Windows - every successive update things don't improve they just get worse. I waited nearly an hour for the download & install, etc, etc, to finish then it does eventually finish but when about 30 seconds was still showing on the timeline. Now the login time is much longer than it was before as a result of which my screen capture tool won't work properly. I suspect that the download/install finishing prematurely is the cause of this, so sent in a support case...
  19. I tried to download the update for the client loader and am of course having trouble, the problem is that it starts to load and stops a 11% (5.18 MB) exactly every time , then restarts and does the same over and over, always stopping at 5.18 MB. I have a good internet connection, have updated my drivers and have performed all maintenance on operating system ( windows 8 :( ).

    If the installer from the eu.com website is the problem... it's attached to this post.
