This first time tutorial does not contain
detailed information but provides a quick tutorial for first time
Preparing your EVE Online
Install/update EVE Online. If you
changed default location of shared cache folder via eve launcher, completely
uninstall old eve and install eve from scratch. Set shared cache folder to
be in default location during installation, e.g.
C:\EVE\SharedCache\. The latest version of EVE Pilot is compatible with
latest EVE Online version. Login to eve online account via STEAM is not
supported, check this
article how to generate regular username.
Prepare your account to be started with eve
launcher. Disable two factor authentication. If you see security warning
when eve launcher starts, make sure your password is sequre. Sequre password
has large and small letters, numbers, symbols with at least 8 chars. Use
only unique password per account. Accept EULA, character name
challenge, e-mail verification etc. You should be able to
login and enter game manually before using character with bot.
For miner: fit your ship, add
drones, make bookmarks, then leave your character in the system near/inside
of a station or POS. Dont leave your pilot in belt during first
run because first run does not monitor HP status and your ship may be killed
by NPC during first run. Please read instruction how to setup
bookmarks correctly if you want to use your own bookmarks or delete all
green bookmarks in the system before doing first run. Without
bookmarks, bot will use top station when sorted by name.
Your computer settings (standard fail safe
In windows 7: switch windows theme
to "windows classic theme". Don't use Aero or any another theme that
enables window transparency. Windows 10 is not officially supported (mostly
works, but sometimes has problems).
Set the resolution of your display to
properly fit eve online window when eve is started with 1024*768 resolution,
windowed mode. If you have to use
1024*768 desktop resolution (some notebooks), relocate taskbar to the
right side of your monitor. Unlock it and use drag-n-drop. The taskbar
should not overlap bottom of EVE client window. Lower desktop
resolutions not supported
Set your default system language to be
English and USA/QWERTY keyboard. Default language is a keyboard
setting, it is not your windows UI language. In very rare cases you
may need to delete non english languages from the system.
Remove gadgets or widgets from your
desktop, disable any popup windows (ICQ, autoupdaters). Nothing should popup
or overlap the EVE Online window during work. As a fail safe measure close
or minimize all windows to clean desktop before bot start.
Start EVE Pilot.
Enter the path to
directory with eve.exe in the EVE Directory field by using
the browser button [...]. This folder has Launcher and
SharedCache subfolders. Please make attention this path is a path to
a directory and not a path to a file in the folder!
Enter your login, password and
expected position of your character. Position is always 'Main' for a
character you logged in to the game last time.
Select the function of EVE Pilot you require
from drop down menu in the "Select Client and Function" (currently
selected is EVEMiner).
Click the First Run button to start
initializing the in-game settings. Please don't touch your keyboard
or mouse during the first run. Also choose an appropriate time for the
first run, if downtime is nearing it is better to wait until downtime has
finished. During first run, bot will restart eve several times. This is OK.
Duration of the first run is about 30 minutes.
After first run is complete you will get
message box with serial number of your account. The serial number is
fingerprint of your account and is used to generate a license and
bind license to eve account. Serial cannot be used to locate your bot or steal
your license. Correct serial contains hexadecimal uppercase digits
(0123456789ABCDEF) devided into 6 groups by 4 digits
with hyphen-minus (-).
The serial number is automatically copied
to clipboard. You don't need to copy it again from message box. Just
paste it to a text file for future use. Remove leading/trailing spaces after
copying if necessary.
Check the Activate Client (Autostart)
You can now click Continue button and
EVE Pilot start with the default settings.
Instructions to change the
default settings specific for each function on EVE Pilot is
available in the corresponding section of the manual.
If your trial license is expired and you cannot start
bot anymore, download dummy
license, unpack it to program directory where you installed bot and
remove trial license. Dummy license will allow to start bot and complete first
