EVE Online Dominion is now live. One of the major new features included is the client repair tool. Devs recently took some time to talk about the many ways in which the tool is used. Check it out!
With EVE Online: Dominion about to be released, and most of the features covered in blogs and forum threads, one of the new upcoming Engineering improvements we're including is the awesome Client Repair Tool.
It does what it says on the tin; it repairs your client.
Often, with new releases, people run into issues downloading or patching their clients for a variety of reasons. With this tool, the days of forcing you to download the full installer are gone. Whether it's a corrupt harddisk, bad internet connection or some other reason, the tool lets you repair your client and then continue on to kill, mine or grief (delete as applicable) your way to the top.
The basics of the tool are simple;
* Download a list of what the contents of the client should be.
* Analyze the client on your hard drive, and compare it to what should be there.
* Download any missing or damage files via Microsoft's BITS protocol.
