+ - CCP's EVE-Online patch overwrites boot.ini 1

Submitted by Nobo
Nobo (606465) writes "CCP's latest major patch to the EVE-Online client, Trinity, comes with an optional DX9-enhanced graphics patch which dramatically improves the visual quality of the in-game graphics through remade models, textures, and HDR. It also has an unfortunate bug. Due to the incredibly stupid choice of boot.ini as a game configuration file, coupled with an errant extra backslash in the installer configuration, anyone who installs the enhanced graphics patch overwrites the windows XP c:\boot.ini file with the EVE client configuration file, bricking the machine on the next boot. Discussion on the forums is becoming understandably heated."
