If you click the Eve shortcut to start a second Eve client it will over lay over the other client. To resolve this and run two clients in two seperate windows you can do the following.
Create a shortcut with the following command for your first client. (I call mine Eve (Client 1))
/opt/cxgames/bin/wine --bottle EVE -- explorer /desktop=0,1440x900 'C:Program FilesCCPEVEeve.exe'
Then you create a second shortcut (link to application) using the following command. (I call mine Eve (Client 2))
/opt/cxgames/bin/wine --bottle EVE -- explorer /desktop=1,1440x900 'C:Program FilesCCPEVEeve.exe'
you need to change /opt/cxgames/bin/wine if you did a single user install or if you installed to another location to point to your correct install location.
These commands will start Eve in a 1440x900 window, you can edit the resolution setting to what ever size window you want, however you may need to manually set the same size in the Eve graphics options or when the game starts the window will re-size to the dimensions specified in the Eve graphics config
Luxury goods are always solid commodities for inter-stellar trading. Spiced wine is not the rarest of luxury goods, but it can still be sold at small outposts and bases that don't manufacture any themselves. EVE Online is a free MMORPG sci-fi strategy game where you can embark on your own unique space adventure. EVE's open world MMORPG sandbox, renowned among online space games, lets you choose your own path and engage in combat, exploration, industry and much more. It wraps Eve in some version of Wine (currently Wine-4.4-Staging apparently) which is working perfectly for now. The current client also has options for selecting another version of Wine so perhaps Proton can be selected instead.
NOTE: While this is still valid a Window can also be set by using the graphics options in the Eve client.
It’s also been a long time since I’ve played any computer interactive game. Unfortunately a work colleague introduced me to EVE Online.
I’m usually playing EVE on Microsoft Windows, which I believe is the best platform for PC gaming.
It’s been a while since I dealt with WINE. In the old days WINE was very complicated to deal with.
I thought I should give it a try – EVE Online on CentOS.
This is a short, semi-tutorial post about how to run EVE Online on CentOS.
It’s fairly childish so even very young Linux users will be able to understand it easily. Seacliff space saver.

Let’s go (as root):
Let’s get EVE Online (from now there’s no need for root user access):
XXXXXX is obviously the version number, which is subject to change.
Let’s install EVE:
OK, here’s the tricky part, if you’ll run it now, the EULA page will not display properly and you won’t be able to accept it. This is because it needs TrueType fonts.
We’ll need to install the package msttcorefonts, a quick look at google suggest you can follow the instructions found here.
Let’s configure the fonts in wine:
Eve Online Windows 10
Eve Online Windows App
It’ll also most likely add a desktop icon for you, in case you didn’t notice.

EVE works nicely with WINE, an evident that WINE has gone a very long way since the last time I’ve used it!!
I believe these instructions can be generalized quite easily for recent fedora distros just as well.
