If you are interested in nothing but DuxaUI, you can grab the standalone version HERE (https://mega.co.nz/#!OgtilQYb!AwSGVIILAUMejxzBYA8AxFYUTGkJlOGatGRv6SS 1kRg) or HERE (http://p99.yourfirefly.com/). For Duxa's All in One Installer read below.
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
CURRENT VERSION: v0.16
Note to previous version users - Simply download and run it like you did the first time, it will overwrite any of the old files with new changes.

This was written to work specifically with Project 1999. There are plethora of options and it should tackle most people's problems and issues.

No more copying and dragging and dropping files. To get going on Project 1999 you literally install EQ:Titanium, and run this installer, and a click later just use the shortcut on your desktop to play.

This works also on copies that are already configured for Project 1999 and on brand new untouched installs. Simply run the installer and pick what you would like to do.

Features:

* Installs EQemu for easy launching (as of Oct 2013 auto patching has been discontinued for P99).
* Choice of Original/Kunark login screen.
* Choice of any loading screen from the the original and all expansions.
* You can use this installer to set up a fresh install of EQ:Titanium for use with Project 1999
* Installs DuxaUI and Velious era UI (use /load duxaui and load /velious when in game).
* Changes the combat music to classic combat music (in mp3 format).
* Fixes multi-core CPU problems.
* Gives an option to delete everything un-needed after Velious. This cuts down the game by about 1.68GB.
* Fixes Male Human/Half-Elf helmet transparency bug.
* Fixes underwater sound cutting out after a few seconds bug.
* Allows you to choose Windowed/Fullscreen resolutions during the install (or at any time).
* Installs better quality classic sounds.
* Allows you to change Theme Music and Death Music to classic versions.
* Choose between Classic/Luclin/Titanium spell icons.


This is what the selection window looks like:

The UI features:

- Easy accessible bags/bag slots without the need to open the inventory
- Health/Mana/Endurance/XP bars all in one convenient location.
- Big healthpoint and mana readout for convenience.
- Easy readable and clickable spell gem buttons.
- A lot of custom UIs only show current weight ( I have no idea how you are supposed to know your maximum weight). So I added curr/total weight readouts to both inventory and player healthbar window.
- Level readout on player window. One thing that was a bummer, when I looked at my old screenshots I couldnt tell what level I was when they were taken.

* As a basis I used VertUI, since that is what I used when I played a decade ago. Huge thanks to Savok for porting the base VertUI to Proj 1999 which served as the basis for this UI.

The inspiration behind this UI was me finding my old screenshots (from 2000-2004) and wanting that same informative UI back. CLICK TO ZOOM

I AM ALWAYS OPEN FOR SUGGESTIONS OF THINGS TO ADD TO THIS PROGRAM

Enjoy :)

Troubleshooting:

Problem: My game is hitching even with the CPU fix, or things dont look right in general.
Solution: Turn of Aero mode in Windows 7 (to do this right click on desktop and go to Personalize. Pick any non-Aero theme)

Problem: Cant enter full screen mode. The game just gives a black screen.
Solution: Use ALT+ENTER to switch between full/windowed mode instead of in-game options.

Problem: When in full screen, clicking certain parts of the screen brings the game back to windowed mode or minimizes it.
Solution: Go to where EQ is installed and find "eqclient.ini" open it with notepad and find the line that says "WindowedMode=TRUE" and set it to "FALSE", also check to make sure that lines "Width=<number>" and "Height=<number" are set to your monitor's resolution.

Problem: No matter how many times I change the loading screen it always reverts back.
Solution: EQemu overwrites the loading screen jpg, so if you would like to keep a custom one, do one of the following:
1) Use EQemu just to patch whenever patches come out and rest of the time bypass it by using the bypass shortcut in Start -> Program Files -> EverQuest
or
2) Go to \EverQuest\Resources\ and make loadscreen.jpg read only, by right clicking on it and going to properties. With this setting EQemu will give you errors about inability to replace the file with the default one. But thats what we want, so just OK the error. It does not effect anything else at all.

Awesome.

Thank you very much. I'm going to install your UI this evening, it looks very good. And I'll tell my brothers about this, they're having problems with their dual core machines (I've already my good old single core so I'm fine with that).

Add the revamped sounds that were posted in this forum.

Add the small patch that gives transparency to human/half elf helmet eye slits. (may be posted in bugs forum)

Add the newer town/environment textures if you haven't.

For me, the new textures won't work with the transparency patch. I think I'd rather have just the transparency patch if I could choose just one.

Great ideas, I will add transparency for sure. The other two I will have to check out how big they are. If adding those would make the installed double or triple in size I may have to create a separate installed for those two.

wait..really? Then I must be doing something wrong. I'll test this again.

edit: confirmed, I'm just silly. When you do the graphics update you still have to redo the transparency patch, but one does not make the other stop working.

I like the original login screen, and the UI isn't bad. Was definitely better than what I was using.

Do you have any plans to have a big mana number under the big health number? That'd be pretty useful...

make sure the window is not locked and drag it by using the blank space on the left. The window itself is actually quite big, its just transparent.. here is a screenshot for reference.

Are you sure the debuff stuck? I casted a Snare on myself and it showed up. Do you see the big long buff window? Should be numbered 1 through 15?

Try hitting ALT + B (default buttons, maybe something else if you rebound them) that will Hide/Show the buff/debuff window. Perhaps you dont have that enabled?

Thanks for the kind words.

I am almost done with v0.2

Will add:
P99 Cartography
HQ General Sounds
Classic spell icons are already in v0.1, I will add Luclin ones and possibly others.
plus some other things are going to come in v0.2

Will NOT add:
Rendered Classic Music - this requires taking ownership etc over Windows System files. Something that is nearly impossible to do with an Installer. Users will have to do this manually. I would love to do this, but its just not very possible. Would be great if we could figure out how to achieve the same by manipulating EQ files instead of Win Sys files.

Velious Armor Textures - 2 reasons, 1) Its not velious yet and most importantly 2) The size of the file is too big for an easy portable installer.

High Res Environmental Textures - 3 reason 1) I think most people wouldnt want these especially if they are playing for old school EQ fix 2) The filesize is HUGE its upwards 700MB. 3) Its very very easy to install for anyone that really wants them, simple extract, dont need an installer.

Xevin
03-02-2011, 11:53 PM
Yep your probably right about the texture updates. They are pretty big.

When I said "Rendered Classic Music" I meant the intro, death and two combat songs. NOT the sound font I made. I don't think many people care that much about the music like I do. The rendered music is just 4 mp3 files that are placed into the EQ directory. I think again file size might prohibit this though.

Keep up the good work. This installer is the most wonderful thing anyone has done for P99 so far IMO!

The cartography isn't classic is it? Not that I'm trying to be nitpicky or anything, but maybe the all-in-one installer shouldn't have something non-classic.

Regardless of what you do this is amazing work. p99 has needed something like this for a long time.

I'm normally pretty fair when it comes to using my code, but at least try to give credit where its due and not pass it off as your own.

The only thing that I didnt write myself were some of the Vert UI elements. And I gave credit there.

For V0.2 I am using a small part of RopeThunder's jojo patch code. And thanks to him and credits for him are already in the pre-release build.

Everything else I wrote by hand, every line of it. Who do you feel should be credited that was not? If I missed something I will surely credit them.

Edit - just realized that you ported VertUI to Project 1999. Instead of crediting the UI as a whole as a basis for my UI, I will edit it to give you credit as well. Since as I understand it not the original creator of the UI, I will leave the thanks to the creator in there as well.

Thanks Savok :) It sure as hell made things a lot easier. Although to be fair I still had to edit almost every XML file to get to the way I had it back in 2003 :)

Hey, Duxa/Crush, do you have a timer for this UI??

Its off by default, but you can enable it by editing eqclient.ini

change

ShowAlarmWindow=FALSE

to

ShowAlarmWindow=TRUE

As a side note. It seems like it is not very clear to some people. But you DO NOT have to install duxaui or use it to enjoy rest of the features of the application. You can install individual fixes/patches if you want to. Thats what all the choices in the install window are for :)

I understand that some people like the retro UI for the retro feel, I tried to make the installer as customizable as possible for that reason. So that people can utilize the fixes without having to use my UI etc.

You can always do the full install or install UI by itself and just not use it as well :) It keeps your default, default_old and velious UI's intact.

That was done on purpose so that they are easier to see. you can get the old ones back by going to

(make sure the game is off first)

\Everquest\uifiles\duxaui\
and deleting

TargetIndicator0.tga
TargetIndicator1.tga
TargetIndicator2.tga
TargetIndicator3.tga

PS - these indicators arent classic so I dont think most people have them on anyways.

None of my spell descriptions work, is that affected by this installer or is that a separate file that got messed up?

All I really want is the titanium UI with 1x10 hotbars.. this installer revamped my default UI and gave me 2x5 and now iduno what to do

Thats a new "feature" implemented with Kunarkon P99. It affects all UI's and has to do with the server files not any UI files. In short.. it is how everyone is now, regardless of UI or configuration.

I dont know if this was done intentionally by developers or if its a bug.

P99 uses unique UI files, so unless a UI was ported specifically for p99 it will not work. My installer has default/velious/duxaui's in it, all 3 work with p99. Beyond those 3 UIs you will either have to look for a ported UI or port it yourself by coding the LUA files.

As far as spells go. Default and Velious UI's use larger spell gems, (thats just how it used to be), so the newer spell gems will not work with them, unless modified, which is not an easy task, you have to open up the Targa files and edit them. Thats why when using non classic spell gems with Velious or Default UI's the actual spell gems are classic but the book icons are the new ones (whichever ones you picked), also the buffs/debuffs are new ones since those are all the same size.

DuxaUI is compatible with all sets of gems, newer UI's will also be compatible (as long as they dont use the old format of spell gems, which so far I havent seen any that do).

So basically to get a 1x10 hotbar, you will either have to port one, or find one thats already ported for p99, and to use Titanium spell gems you will have to use non default non velious UI, unless you port the gems.

When I ran this to set up, I set it for 1920x1200 and windowed. When I ran the installer again, I set it for full screen and 1920 res, and it runs in full screen, but it's certainly not 1920 res, more like 1024. Does 1920 not work for full screen?

Which part are you at? Are you at the loading/title screen? Those are at set resolutions, so the monitor will adjust to those. But in the actual Game (where its 3d) it will be 1920. Its just the way the game is made.

Hey Crushev, I have a question that maybe you can help me troubleshoot.

I have used your Installer once on my desktop and everything went perfectly. So today I decided to use it on my laptop. I installed and had an issue pop up, so I removed everything and started with a fresh install of Titanium. Went through the EQEmu steps and the Getting Started guide. Logged in to confirm that everything worked.. it did. Then I decided to use your installer to change the screens and use your UI. Well, now I get the same error message as before the reinstall. This is the message:

-----------------------------------------
Everquest: Windows - Application Error

The instruction at 0x10001c6b referenced memory at 0x00000018. The memory could not be read.

Click OK to terminate the program.
----------------------------------------

Any clue what I could look into to correct this? I am not very tech savy, but can follow instructions well enough. Let me know what [if any] info I could provide that might make this easier. If its too much trouble I can just start the whole process over again.

Thanks for all your work, I enjoyed the Installer and had not run into any problems in the past. :)

Does this error pop up every single time? or did it pop up once? If you only tried once try again, sometimes windows will throw that error with EQ, particularly Vista and 7 the first time you run it. But shouldnt happen again.

What kind of processor do you have? Is it a dual core or quad core?

With my installer you dont need to do anything from the get started guide.. you just use it to set it up on a fresh install of titanium. Perhaps doing stuff from getting started guide messed something up? I would just skip all that, and just use my installer.

Thanks for the quick response.

No, the error message pops up every time [tried it over 20, or long enough to see that it wasnt changing.] Processor is a Intel Core 2 Duo [don't think that makes it dual core, however?]

Just because I don't mind the delay for getting it running on the laptop, what are you suggesting? That I do not have to reinstall but can simply select option 1 on your Installer and then create a new directory for it?

Thanks again.

You can do one of the following:

1) Do a fresh install off the disc, and dont change anything at all. Simply run my installer, pick option 1 and point to the installation directory,

2) Try run option 1 on already installed copy of EQ

3) Try make a shortcut manually to it. I am not sure why this error is happening, havent seen it before, you can try bypass the CPU fix by creating a shortcut manually to eqgame.exe (just right click it and choose Send To -> Desktop (as shortcut)). Then right click on shortcut and go to properties and in target path add "patchme" without quotes at the end. See if that solves it for you.

I used your program (very nifty btw) and was wondering what exactly it changes to help the dual core systems? Since using it my other games like WoW aren't working properly, like 3 frames per second after taking 10 mins to load.. I figured it just turned one of the cores off or something of the sort so I rebooted and opened up the system setup tool but both cores are still on in that menu, so maybe its another un-related problem

It starts up EverQuest with using only 1 core, no matter how many core PC it is. It only does it for EverQuest, and only through the shortcut it creates on the desktop. It will not effect anything else on your computer other than EverQuest, and only if ran through that shortcut.

If you want to undo the fix you can just create a new shortcut with "patchme" from eqgame.exe.

Hi there -

I think I'm going to try this installer - thanks to the folks who donated their time.

I was having this problem (not using this installer) yesterday. Basically, the video settings in the eqclient.ini were not getting edited correctly when I set the correct wide screen resolution in the GUI. This error came up right after I put in my account/password and it would have gotten to the character select.

I suspected video 3D rendering/resolution problems (have seen this type of behavior before in other programs at work so thought to take a look at the resolution settings in the INI). I went into the eqclient.ini and edited it to reflect the resolution of my machine (both windowed and non-windowed values). After I did that - problem went away.

Very similar setup to yours - EQemu/P1999 install on a wide-screen laptop. Win7 64-bit, nVidia video.

Just thought I'd share what fixed this for me.

It sounds like your default UI is messed up, run option (0) that should fix it for you.

It shouldnt have done anything to your UI other than reset positions of windows.

ALT+Enter should work just fine as well.

That error you posted happens once in a blue moon and has to do with the multi core CPU fix. Usually it just happens once and never again.

If you already have a UI setup and everything do not use Option (0) which is what you probably did here?, option (0) is meant for a fresh install where you dont have anything configured. On already configured installs you can use the other options (1) through (13) to manually install the fixes you want.

There is no way to install everything aka option (0) and at the same time keep all the settings intact, thats just the nature of things. A lot of things are done to the game files in order to tweak/fix bugs etc.

I set up a new shortcut and added the "patchme" to the end. I double clicked the shortcut and logged on. The screen where you choose your character said my spells files were outdated and to visit p1999.org. What I did was run Duxa again and choose the last option "update spells." Logged on again and still have the outdated spells message.

After having run Duxa should I do all the creating new folders and move the files like it says in p1999 getting started thread or was Duxa supposed to do this?

There was a spell file update that likely hasn't been made in to Duxa. Go to the home page of P99 and click the getting started guide. About halfway down you'll see a spell file .zip.

All you have to do is download that, and drag those files in to your EverQuest directory. Rewriting any files it prompts you for. That's it.

You must have an earlier version of the installer. The current version is v5. It has the latest spell file that was added to the server yesterday. So you can just download duxa's v5 and run option (13) on that.

To answer your question, yeah you only need duxa's installer and shouldn't need anything else. Were just in a weird spot right now because with Kunark lots of new spell files are being released.

No the installer will create one on your desktop called EverQuest and it should have the old classic blue shield icon. If you have a lot of icons on your desktop make sure it's not lost among them somewhere.

Note that it will only create this shortcut if you run option (0) or the CPU fix option. Other options will not create one. So that may be your issue?

Yes, indeed it is. I did not understand that piece of the information. My mistake!

I do believe I selected option #2, which looked like it was supposed to do the multi-core fix, but don't think it built the icon. I'll re-test it - it is possible I am incorrect.

Yeah option 2 assumes you already have the game running fine on p99 and therefore don't need the CPU fix. But if you still do that's why there is an option to install the fix separately.

So try running just the fix option.

I've done the installer and everything seemed to be working great, logged in, picked p1999 server then it went black screen with EQ cursor, then it spit me back to login screen, logged in went to server select and it sayed error 1017: cannot login to the everquest server. you may need to rerun the update patch repeatadly seeing this message indicates a loss of connectivity to the patch server, this is usually temporary. Been trying to get this game to work for a whole year. I saw this and thought id try it. thought it would work but got same error as i kept getting before, dunno what its for, if you could help i would appreciate it so much! thanks

Duxa - Are you sure the shrink portion of the installer works? Because i'm running it, and using the C:\Program Files\Sony\Everquest directory as the target, and i'm still seeing files like Bertoxtemple.eqg, blacksail.eqg, bothunder_ch2.eqg...

It didn't appear to shrink my install...I'm running XP if that helps.

yeah it should work. How big is your EQ install? (Right click the install folder and go to properties).

Just because the files you mentioned above are still there doesnt mean it didnt work. When i wrote the shrinker I made it get rid of huge files (mostly zone files). It is normal for bothunder_ch2.eqg to be there since its only 256kb, so i didnt bother removing it.

As far as the other 2 you mentioned. Berthoxtemple is part of Seeds of Destruction, and Blacksail is part of the Buried Sea. Neither of which are in the Titanium client. Are you using SoF client? Because that would explain why those files were't removed. Shrinker is not looking for them, it only looks for files that are in the Titanium client. So basically it did work for you, it just removed files from:

The Planes of Power (October 2002)
The Legacy of Ykesha (February 2003)
Lost Dungeons of Norrath (September 2003)
Gates of Discord (February 2004)
Omens of War (September 2004)
Dragons of Norrath (February 2005)
Depths of Darkhollow (September 2005)

and NOT from

Prophecy of Ro (February 2006)
The Serpent's Spine (September 2006)
The Buried Sea (February 2007)
Secrets of Faydwer (November 2007)

Not really sure how you have Bertox Temple zone file since that was after SoF in Seeds of Destruction (October 2008).

Either way, check if you have these 3, if not then it did work as I described above. These 3 files are nearly 100mb together (400 times bigger than that bothunder file that i kept).

dreadspire.eqg
eastkorlach
dranikcatacobmsc.eqg

PS - if I had SoF client or at least the list of files in it I could make it include the files from later expansions, but since I dont. I cant.

Sounds like you are doing something wrong. Here are the steps of doing stuff to set up the game (before you start delete/uninstall anything you have done so far):

1) Install EverQuest Titanium into C:\
2) Run Duxa's All in One installer and pick option (0)
3) Use the shortcut on your desktop.

File size was 4.35 gb IIRC (at work atm). I use Titanium, not SoF. It seemed to remain that size even after I ran it. I'll look into it more closely when I get home :)

Yeah option 2 assumes you already have the game running fine on p99 and therefore don't need the CPU fix. But if you still do that's why there is an option to install the fix separately.

So try running just the fix option.

I'll play with this when I get home, thanks for the review of the features. Love the tool.

I am sure its a false positive as stated above. It was late the night I was going to install and was too tired to work around it, I will be trying to install it again tonight. But yeah, I couldn't even open it. I downloaded it and my AV scanned it automatically then didn't allow me to open the file. I will try turning off the AV before I download it tonight. Over all looks like a very excellent program, I am looking forward to exploring it. :)

I'm unable to launch the game from my shortcut on my desktop. All I did was install EQ Titanium, installed Duxa's (option 1) and it won't load. I even tried doing from the everquest directory itself. Won't load from EQgame.exe or Everquest.exe either. I did the recommended install of EQ Titanium. I've tried rebooting and re-installing EQ. Still nothing. I'm not sure if anyone else is having this problem, but I couldn't find anything in the last threads.


Edit: Nevermind, figured it out.

Chrushev

Does it give you an error or anything? Its strange that it isnt working.

if it was a fresh install of Titanium then option (1) wouldnt work, you should pick option (0) in those cases. Option (1) assumes that the game is already setup to run on p99 (therefore not a fresh install).

My installer does not modify the eqgame.exe or everquest.exe in any way. So I think the problem is either with your PC or with the install.

Did the game ever run before? What videocard / processor do you have?

I just installed fresh EQ titanium, then ran your program and selected 0. Now I cant get the game to run.

How are you running the game? Option (0) should have put an old looking icon on your desktop --> http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v644/Duxa2/EQshortcutPic.png are you using that to run the game?

When it asks which directory I want to install it into I couldn't find "EverQuest:Titanium Install Directory" where it asks I select so I just dropped it in the main Sony/EverQuest folder assuming that's what it meant. Everything seemed to continue on like normal. The Icon on my desktop even changed to the oldschool silver shield (which I took as a sign that it had worked) But when I double click the EverQuest Icon on the desktop A black rectangle flashes for a split second and then nothing happens.

I'm beyond frustrated at having gotten this close just to stall, did I do something wrong?

No, if you point it to the wrong directory it would throw an error about it being the wrong directory. So it sounds like you installed it right.

As far as the black square flashing, that is normal, and the game should start within 10 seconds after that, depending on how fast your computer is.

What resolution did you pick? Try rerunning the installer and running option (6) and then selecting "Windowed" and "1280x800", see if that solves the problem. If it does then you set your resolution wrong.

Also, where is the game installed? Make sure its installed in C:\ and NOT in program files, since windows will sometimes wont let it execute properly if its in program files.

Have you tried restarting? What kind of video card/processor do you have?

Trude
04-15-2011, 12:19 AM
Yes, I waited much longer than 10 seconds. The first resolution I tried was 1280x800 fullscreen. The second time I tried the same thing but windowed... same thing. Next I tried 680x400 or whatever the default is... didn't work. So I just reinstalled Titanium. This time I manually changed/maneuvered all the files and it seemed to work. Made it all the way to the log in screen. Yay.

Then like an idiot I tried using Duxa's etc again. Windowed and 1280x800... now I'm back to square one and frustrated with myself for not just having stuck with having changed everything manually.

Trude
04-15-2011, 12:27 AM
Fuck it, I don't care. I've uninstalled it again and will just manually swap the files again.

But before I messed it up the second time I made it to the log in screen. I put in my ID/Password. Said wrong password. I'm supposed to use my ID/PW from EQEmulator.com at this point right? That's what I tried to do. I confirmed my login and reset my password and had the same issue. "wrong password". Do I need to setup/use a different account somewhere or is EQEmulator the correct login I should be using? (to log into server, not the website) ????

Just a lil input, once i started using the Duxa installer <intel duel core> i started having hella problems, reinstalled 5 times with no changes. It was like running in slow motion and made the game unplayable. Today 2 weeks later i finnaly did a fresh install again and skipped the duxa and just used the multi core fix listed in the mutli core thread and savnoks vert UI, and what do u know, everything is running like a top now.

I'm not knocking all ur work <for free im sure> but would like it pointed out that this tool isnt for everyone, and if u think it is ur def wrong.

hmm thats strange. I think next release I will remove the multi-core fix from the auto install (option (0), and leave it as a standalone install since not everyone needs it. Like in your case for example you didnt need it because Intel processors dont seem to have the multi core issue. And for people that dont need it it seems to screw up more things than fix.

So starting next release you should be able to start using it again, since it wont mess with the CPU fix.

Fuck it, I don't care. I've uninstalled it again and will just manually swap the files again.

no you need to click "User CP" at the top of this forum and create a new LP (login/password) from there. Did you do that step?

Sorry my installer caused you problems. I would really like to know why you are experiencing issues that you are. Either way, you should still be able to use other parts of the installer (like visor and sound fixes etc, and UI's) just dont select CPu fix unless you need it :)

Alright v0.5.1 is up.

v0.5.1 - April 15, 2011
- Removed CPU fix from (0), because not everyone needs it. It is still available as standalone option.
- Option (0) renamed to (1).
- Added a warning to option (1) and (6) that keybinding will be reset to defaults.

Trude and Nivar_Quartz if you guys have some time and want to be a HUGE help. Could you try what you did above that caused you issues but with the new v0.5.1 ? I think I know what caused the issues, and it should be fixed now. Thanks guys.

I want to play old school eq but Im a total novice when it comes to programming
ect.. I need it to be pretty easy or I end up getting pissed off at it because I do not have the patience.

First question is I currently have installed on this cpu all of the expansions except the last downloaded off of Sonys website.

Do I need to buy Titanium?
I would like to play both here and on the progression server so can I have two seperate icons and not have to configure different paths?(which I may mess up)

So in short do I buy titanium use the installer at the top of this thread...as ive already created a log in name for the game ... and will it mess with my normal eq setup for Sony??

I feel like a total retard with this shit.

Yes you need Titanium. When you install titanium install it to a different place than your current install is. For example to C:\p99\EQ\

Then use this installer. Point to that directory with option (1) and you are good to go.

I have to buy Titanium off of Ebay or Amazon.
The other way I saw was a download from stream for 19.99 but with that
you cannot use Duxas?

If I wanted to fo that route how much more difficult is it for me to get it going or should I just buy the disks...?

One of the options in the installer is to change windowed/fullscreen and resolutions. So run the installer again and pick that option (option (6)).

if you are satisfied with the size of the window and just want to change the font size you can use /setfontsize [1-5]

I use your installer at work 5 nights of the week because when I log off in the morning, it cleans all files accumulated throughout the work day.

With that said, I have a fresh install of Titanium every day, and every time when using your installer my Nektulos files are incorrect. I can tell by the textures when I zone in that it is the more "updated" Nektulos, and I am under the world in doing so.

Might wanna check in to this.

After installing I found that it is leaving the nektulos.eqg and the environment emitters files in the directory in ADDITION to making a "backup" copy of it as well.



After completing the Guide above, you must make a few modifications to your Everquest files. Navigate to your Everquest Titanium folder and move the following files out of the folder (Preferably create a new folder named "Backup" to put them in):
arena.eqg
arena_EnvironmentEmitters.txt
lavastorm.eqg
nektulos.eqg
Nektulos_EnvironmentEmitters.txt



In my directory there is all of these files and all of them with .backup after them.

not sure if you can help..

I am having problems with my return / enter key not working in game (so cant type chat or commands) i have a gut feeling its related to the game starting in a window.. and not quite getting into full screen mode. Even once I manually enter full screen in game it doesnt work.

To be honest I didnt want to install your programme (it looks great) as I dont want to add any more factors to getting this solved. But do you think this may work?

My program actually does not install anything other than what you would have to do anyways to play on Project 1999, it just automates everything. Once the installer closes nothing runs/gets installed etc... so you really wouldnt be adding anything.

As far as your problem goes, sure... if you feel like its a resolution thing, run my installer and choose the resolutions/windowed/fullscreen option and enter how you want to play.

@ Koota, yep there was indeed a problem with nektulos. I changed that part of the installer a little bit so that after it creates a backup of it, it also does a check and deletes the old one if its still present. I believe the issue is caused by the fact that for some strange reason, way back when Titanium came out when gold mastering files they marked Nektulos files as read only. So most delete operations will fail, unless forced. I tested it on 2 installs and the new installer routine seems to have fixed the problem. Please try it out and PM me or post on here.

Thanks so much for pointing this out, I play a WE DRU, so never have a reason to go to Nektulos. So without you I wouldnt have known the issue existed.

I have got a pretty strange issue.

So I was experiencing some issues, ones that I thought could be solved through installing this. So I simply re-installed my client (which is Titanium), installed the "Recommended" option from the fix menu. After that finished installing, I started up from the client that is created with this fix. Logged in, chose my server and waited.

Then I got an almost-instant error message along the lines of this:

"eqgame.exe has encountered an issue and needs to close."

There's an option to Debug (which does nothing), and this is the only message I keep getting. I've tried running in Compatibility Mode (95, 98/ME), and that doesn't help either. I've even manually removed the Backup files into a special folder to see of that would help (of course, it didn't).

This wasn't happening before I installed the fix, and I'm wondering if I can get any help on this issue.

Check to ensure your eqclient.ini has the native monitor resolution in the [VideoMode] section. The newer, higher, resolutions cause the game a problem right there. Set the windowed and full screen settings to match the resolution your monitor is set at currently.

That is weird.. what OS are you on? Are you on Windows 7 or Vista? Where is the game installed? If its installed in Program files move it to C:/ and run the installer again with option (0). That should take care of the problem.

As already mentioned, make sure your resolution is set, safe bet would be to try run the game in windowed mode.

Also make sure the game is NOT in program files, put it in to c:/ windows sometimes causes problems when writing/reading from Program Files with everquest.

Great tool, used it and made things very easy.

Having an issue getting the game to go wisescreen however. I used the tool and chose the maximum resolution available (1920 x 1080), I then set my desktop resolution to the same (down from 2048 x 1152, which is the maximum) and the ini file says it is indeed set to 1920 x 1080 , but when I get to the charatcer select, and in game, the resolution is at most 1024 x 768or so, huge black bars to the left and right of the game window.

Any ideas on how to get this to work right? I've got windows 7 if that matters.

edit: Fixed the problem.

Thank you so much for this! I love the reworked Velious UI, just like I remember it. Great handy fixes too.

I initially had a problem with Norton antivirus putting the installer in quarantine before I could run it. I solved the problem by using Google chrome browser to download the installer. For some reason many exe files downloaded with Internet Explorer 8 give Norton false positives.

Once I got that straightened out (took me a couple minutes) it ran without a hitch :)

yes it is possible to get a blue bar on the exp bar, but when I initially tried it it looked awkward. I may play around with it more when I get more time on my hands.

I am trying to log in after using your installer and am getting an error, then crashing. I played with few issues before by following the directions on the getting started forum, until I had a message when logging in today that I needed to update my spell book. I found your installer and liked a lot of what I saw so decided to use it in general, and to fix my spell book issue.

The message I am getting is after selecting the p-1999 server and clicking, "play Everquest"
It read:
The instruction at 0x10001c6b referenced memory at 0x00000018. The memory could not be read.
Then i click ok and it shuts down.

Am I missing something and this is an easy fix or do I need to go back to the old method of setting things up with my EQ Titanium to play on P-1999? Any help greatly appreciated, even if it's an, "I dunno..."

Sounds like the resolution is set improperly.. run the installer again and choose "change resolution option" try picking windowed if that runs fine and you want to do fullscreen then run it again, pick fullscreen and make sure you select your monitor's default resolution... you can also edit the eqgame.ini and put in those values manually.

When you ran the installer did you choose option (1)? If not, try that...

What version of windows are you on? Also where is the game installed? Is it in program files?

If so, move it.. Just drag and drop into c:\EverQuest\ and run the installer again with selecting option 1.

Does it only happen on that one character or with all characters? If it only happens on one character then your character is stuck in the void, like under world or something. Create another character and submit a petition to have your character moved.

This is really awesome and will hopefully get some of my less computer-saavy friends to install it.

I do have a couple of problems I'd like to figure out before pointing them to it...

1 - Is there a way to install the installer properly (on Win7 in my case) without choosing Option #1? For example, if I don't want the Duxa UI? It seems that any of the other options will do this, except I am not so sure now that I am seeing the following problems...

2 - After "installing" the installer via, say, option #13, it copies the spell files (great!), and then says...
"Click the following button if you want to see the latest information...".

I don't see any button. I have Exit way down at the bottom, which just...exits the installer as expected. I don't see any evidence that it has actuall installed the installer either.

3 - I have to type in my P1999 install directory (f:\p1999\p1999) every time I run the installer. Is there anyway to get it to remember the directory? Can't it just stick my last choice into the registry?

4 - Others have indicated a desktop icon for the installer after installing it. I don't get one (another reason I think it is not installing as expected).

Thanks!

1 - When picking option 1 it will put the UI into your UI folder, but you dont have to use it. So using (1) is a safe bet whether you want to use the UI or not. Just do /load <uiname> for whatever UI you want to use. Other options just do the individual tasks as described they dont do the whole install.

2 - Not sure what you are talking about with the "Latest information" can you provide a screenshot.. but basically it should say exit.. the way you know that it installed is that you got to that point.. if it couldnt install it would give you an error.. so no errors means its all good.

3 - yes there are ways but people may run into issues with permissions when writing to registy etc.. so i decided to avoid that whole mess by not writing anything to registry.

4 - Desktop icon is ONLY placed there if you pick option (1) or (5), the new shortcut is basically a CPU fix for people wiht issues running on multicore computers. So there should not be a shortcut unless you choose the CPU fix or run option (1) which includes the CPU fix.

Basically if you have a brand new install there is no reason not to run option (1) it does not force you into anything, you can use whatever UI you want, it just installs everything for you..

Other options are there for people who have the game already configured (have shortcut already, and are able to connect to the server) and want to take advantage of some of the features of the installer without running option (1). Option (13) allows people to upgrade to latest spellfiles without doing it manually.

I got my client stuck in windowed mode so I used this to re-set the full screen option. Now the eqclient.exe crashes as soon as I select a server. Any help? What did the program modify when only selection full-screen and resolution option?

You must have selected a resolution your monitor does not support. The only thing that gets changed when you go fullscreen is the fullscreen/windowed mode and resolution lines in the .ini

Try picking different resolution.

1 - When picking option 1 it will put the UI into your UI folder, but you dont have to use it. So using (1) is a safe bet whether you want to use the UI or not. Just do /load <uiname> for whatever UI you want to use. Other options just do the individual tasks as described they dont do the whole install.

2 - Not sure what you are talking about with the "Latest information" can you provide a screenshot.. but basically it should say exit.. the way you know that it installed is that you got to that point.. if it couldnt install it would give you an error.. so no errors means its all good.

3 - yes there are ways but people may run into issues with permissions when writing to registy etc.. so i decided to avoid that whole mess by not writing anything to registry.

Thanks Crushev - I really appreciate it.

So I tried option #1 to just install everything, but now when I run using the shortcut provided, I get the following...

UIErrorLog created at Wed Aug 24 20:02:28 2011

I tried removing the duxaui folder, thinking the problem was in there (being the new UI), but still get the above.

I am currently using the Velious UI, and have been forever. My install path is just f:\p1999\p1999, which the installer recognizes fine and installs into fine.

Any ideas? Thanks again.

Which tells me that this IS declared, but only for the velious UI. If I look in eqclient.ini, my UI has been set to Default. If I manually set it back to velious, and restart, then I get farther.

BUT, now I get a hard crash...
(instruction at 0xblahblah referenced memory at 0x0000003c. The memory could not be read.

Will post back if I figure this one out. If you have any ideas, please let me know. Thank you.

Reinstall the Velious UI that you have been using, should fix the problem.

Reinstall the Velious UI that you have been using, should fix the problem.

Thanks. I tried that and got other errors. This is simply the Velious UI from the startup guide (http://www.project1999.org/forums/showthread.php?t=2651).

I'm re-installing the full Titanium package and will try this again against the full install, which should work fine.

Side note - you do realize that there is a version of Velious UI that comes with Duxa's installer right? No need to install any other velious UI...

Thanks for the installer, saved quite some hassle. I do have a problem though. I'm getting issues with my dualcore, so i opened up the installer again to get the multicore fix. However, the newly created Shortcut won't start the game anymore, the previous one, called EQ P1999 or something still works fine, but the one with the fix in its name just does nothing. Is there a way to get this working?

E: I've just noticed the shortcut is trying to execute runEQ.bat instead of the patchme... one the inital shortcut uses. Is it supposed to be like that? Cause the runEQ.bat just won't do anything for me.

Hi, I am not sure exactly when this had happened but when I went out grinding on Friday, I noticed the box that say target, that changes color to the con of the monster and shows it's health is missing. I have reloaded the UI, then I re ran the install program and set it for 1 to do everything over and I still cannot get this box back. I moved all the other boxes around to make sure it was not hidden underneath one of them. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Yeah its supposed to run the bat file, its possible that windows is preventing it from running.. where is your EQ installed? Is it in program files? if so move it to C:\

Open your options and go to keyboard bindings tab, look for the key combination you have bound to show/hide target window and press that.

Dude, while I'll admit the all in one installer tool is very nice for gett'n started

especially for people who have a hard time unerstanding the directions involved.

And I really hoped it would have cleaned up some problems i had with Eqlite.

And it did, and im impressed with the fixed map files. and sound files an many other things.

Its also alot buggier than Eqlite/wineq2 combo

Lots of CPU hitching regardless if I change from AEro to Classic,

I usually have to log in 2 or 3 times, because the first couple while I'm at char select and i hit enter. It'll just kill the program to desktop and i have to relog. Also and wait until the char drops from game.

And now i've got a bug thats got all the char models barely moving properly. its all screwy?

These are not problems I had with the previous installtion with Eqlite/wineq2. The only reason I used your tool on a fresh install was that I was getting tired of the log in bug that kept sayin unknown error alot.

But that is alot less frustrating of an error than all the new little situations your installer created =/

Any advice would be appreciated. I would like to keep using your version because it is cleaner and better put together, but well i mean we gotta figure out these couple kooky bugs?

I have not encountered any of the issues you are describing, and havent heard anyone else encountering those.

What kind of computer do you have? is it a multi core PC? What Windows version are you running? Are you on Titanium? Where is it installed? is it in program files?

Its an old skool, 4800+ 64X2, With Windows 7 Ult 64, And yes its a Fresh titanium install as of 5 minutes before i ran your installer.
Also on this pc. I have 2 partitions. 1 50gb Partition for Windows installation and installed programs such as Voice chats n browsers n stuff. And a 250gb partition for games, music, movies. pron. You name it. So thats where it is.

But these bugs are really really strange. See I used your installed uhh I'd say what monday afternoon? An played all day an night monday without a hiccup. Was phenomenal, (if you kept getting warm fuzzy feelings on monday, its cause I was singing praises to your work).

Then tuesday I went to log in and the strange stuff started. I'm at char select and I got the char i wanted to play selected and i click enter, and instantly the program closes. so i fire it up and have to wait at server select until my char went ld. then i was able to log in. But I was doing some things on my chars and jumpin between log in accounts moving gear an what not. And it happened a few more times.

Also the CPU hitching, I' honestly don't know if thats the game itself or what. Like It does not happen when i run around in uhh Birds eye view? y'know with the cam in one of the far out panned away spots.

I'm trying to say it only happens In first person view.

And the last thing. The char model issue. I dunno what honestly could possibly be the deal with this one, its probably the strangest issue of all. Sometimes i'll be running along just fine the char is animated properly. But then other times. He'll just get stuck. in random positions and thats how he'll move around. no animation at all. like im just floating around. And sometimes mobs im attacking will do the same. its very strange. And this Didnt start happening until Wednesday.

Are you using the CPU fixed exe? The animation and hitching issues sound like they could be caused by that.. AMD processors are notorious for doing weird things with speed in EQ.

Choice #1 does not do the CPU fix (its option 5) because some people dont need it ( Intel systems dont seem to have an issue, at least i7 and Q series, Dual Core Intels still sometimes need it).

So run option 5 and it should make a new shortcut on your desktop, use that to run the game.

Well I did run your recommended selection #1 are you saying it doesnt do the CPU fix?

To answer my own question, I ran it anyways and no it doesnt do Fix #5 ad im about to log in now. But I have a good feeling if it didnt do the CPU fix then thats most likely what the problems were. While I wasn't zooming around the zone doin 90fps i was definitely having some multi core issues. the moment you said about it it clicked and i remembered the bugs i had back before i found Wineq2. Was the same typical stuff.

Anyways I'll re-edit this with confirmation if it was indeed fixed..


P.S Total sidenote. I don't use your UI(srry). Y'see Savok is a guildmate of mine. So I'm rock'n a custom Vert UI. But I noticed your spellbar in duxa has much bigger more easily accessible buttons. So if you could list exactly what files i would need to copy to slap that bad boy in my vert folder I'd luv u long time =D

P.S.S multicore fix. Fixed it. Thx sir =)

v0.14 - September 11, 2011
- Removed cartography fix option since Maps were turned off on the server.
- Replaced Update Spellfile option with Install EQemu Launcher option, since it will automatically keep th spell files up to date.
- Integrated spellfiles v14 into this build, but should no longer need to update them with EQemu launcher support.
- Option (5) is now legacy. Try using the EQemu launcher built in function to use 1 core first. If it doesnt work use this option.
- Removed non EQemu shortcut. If you want to bypass EQemu you can still use the Start Menu shortcut.

Note#1 - For current users with outdated spellfiles. Run option (12) this will install EQemu, and place a new shortcut on your desktop, EQemu will keep your spellfiles up to date. You dont need to do anything else.

Note#2 -EQemu overwrites the loading screen jpg, so if you would like to keep a custom one (from another expansion, or your own), then do one of the following:
1) Use EQemu just to patch whenever patches come out and rest of the time bypass it by using the bypass shortcut in Start -> Program Files -> EverQuest

or

2) Go to \EverQuest\Resources\ and make loadscreen.jpg read only, by right clicking on it and going to properties. With this setting EQemu will give you errors about inability to replace the file with the default one. But thats what we want, so just OK the error. It does not effect anything else at all.
