The title bar consists
of 5 elements. Each element is designed to accomplish a special
range of tasks.
1) Installation directory.
Click this and you will get quick access to EVE
Pilot's installation directory. If you have a license file, put
it here to activate the full version mode of EVE Pilot.
2) Check licenses. If
you have full version mode licenses in the installation directory,
this option will show you a table of your licenses with detailed information
about each license:
The table has information such as the
license file name, the serial code that is stored in the license,
product code or SKU, expiration date for subscription based licenses and
whether or not the license was accepted by
the server. The [Show Serial] button will show a serial
number, generated by a previous first run procedure. The [Refresh] button
will rescan the licenses and refresh the table.
3) Tools. This
gives you access to some general functions of EVE Pilot:
Custom Program Title. Whatever you
write in this edit box will appear as a program name in task bar.
Send Input and Send Play modes. These
two modes defining the way of interaction of a bot with game client. Send
Input mode (default) uses mouse and keyboard buffer to send command to client.
It is possible to detect that Send Input mode is artificial. Send Play mode
using macro playback functionality of a windows. Keyloggers do not detect
whether mouse or keyboard input artificial. This mode was considered as a
dangerous and was disabled in Windows Vista and Windows 7. To enable it you
must disable UAC or
use windows XP.
'Data Folder Path' is showing current
path to data folder used by bot. You may store files on external flash
drive and dont expose presence of a bot in your system. To edit this path use
button [>>>]. Please dont forget to restart bot after you set new
custom data folder path!
Check 'Switch Off Intro Movie' to
disable the splash screen on startup.
'Use IP guard'. If you use VPN to
hide your IP address, you know that in case of connect lost to VPN server your
computer exit internet under your native IP. Check this option and enter your
desired external IP or part of IP in the edit field if you want to
detect your external IP and dont allow bot to connect to eve server if your IP
is not hidden. This field may also accept negative IP or a part as a mask,
e.g. -xxx.yyy.zzz Bot will start eve with any IP, but negative, which should
be your native IP address you want to hide.
EVE Proxy (host, port). Eve allows to
use 3724 port if connection to 26000 port is not possible. Define eve
server:port info here as you can do this via prefs.ini file.

folder where EVE Pilot stores it's settings and logs.
'EVE Settings Folder' will
open directory where game stores settings.
'EVE Settings Operations' group box
may be used to backup, erase, respore eve online settings. 'Backup EVE
Settings' and 'Restore EVE Settings' can be used to save and restore the
current EVE settings. If you use a separate EVE folder for EVE Pilot you will
not need to backup or restore the settings. 'Erase EVE Settings' will erase
the current EVE settings. After they have been erases, EVE should start in
full screen with EULA window displayed. 'Copy EVE Settings to client' is one
of the most useful functions. During first run EVE Pilot creates and saves the
EVE settings for future use, any attempts to change the in-game client setup
will fail if you do them after the first run. If you want to make changes to
the in-game setup and don't want to repeat the full first run, you can to make
changes in game then close EVE (to save the changes). Once EVE has closed you
can then click 'Copy Current EVE Settings Locally' to copy the new settings
into the selected client for future use.

files and show the locations to buy - resell using EVE

statistics window. If you refine the ore to the hanger as you go, EVE
Pilot will calculate the price of your items and record
the statistics. Also statistics window will show you what is better to
mine and maximal isk/hour ratio if you mine different ores. UPDATE: This is outdated option. Bot does not collect full mining
statistics as possibility to refine ore from orehold during unload stage
'Algorithm Editor' opens a
window where you can look at the content of the built-in algorithms
and write custom one
'Test Stand' is used for

Hint: You can also start evepilot in
last known configuration with parameters /a and /x, where '/a' is autostart and
'/x' - the number of seconds to wait before start (to load your OS and establish
internet connection). To override the maximal number of clients (10) use
parameter /n2, where 2 is the maximal number of clients + 1. This will help
you to save memory if you start EP in virtual machine and need only one
client to be loaded. Example of the command line (edit in shortcut of the bot):
"C:\Bot\EVEPilot.exe" /a /300
