I encourage all of you who want to experience a blast from the past, a real time machine experience to the glory raiding days of EQ, to come over to the Mac server. I plan on playing here when i am not raiding on EQMAC and vice versa.

Wow, that is great news for EQMac players. Imagine SOE showing some heart. Amazing.

I'm glad that many of you got a chance to see how things are on this server. Perhaps some you will stay a while, or straddle both servers. Just imagine, you will probably never be completely cut off from play!

Yes it is, and Plane of Time had only just recently been broken into. P1999 is great if you only want to experience Classic up through Kunark (hopefully Velious eventually), and EQMac is great if you want to experience classic up through PoP.

Secrets posted a patch on the FOH board to be able to play from PC. But the problem I'm having is I believe you need to use their Launchpad web installer atleast once in order to flag your account as playable on the server. Everytime I run the Launchpad and try to subscribe it gives me an error and to contact customer service. Not sure if it is because I'm not on a Mac or something else...

This is very good news for EQmac. We were very worried it and the time capsule it represent was going away.

Just a warning though, dont try to go there and pull a Lron or think you are going to be some great Mega Troll, its a very old style community, you will be banned from their forums and shunned in game. If you take it any farther, several of the players have the EQmac developer on speed dial and he WILL take care of you.

Can't get it to run on a PC that well so posting this if anyone have any ideas, i have two accounts since a long time ago when playing on al'kabor server on a OSX installation on a PC so they are both eqmac flagged.

I have downloaded and installed titanium client and applied Secrets patch. I am able to login with both my accounts and can select server, thing starts to load and finishes but just when character select screen is about i get "You have been disconnected" message :(

Any clues would be appreciated,

Found a workaround. Client seems kind of wonky but maybe that's because I need to change some settings, but downloading the browser client (http://launch.soe.com/lp3/index.html?game=eqmac&skin=everquest) and then copying the files within the Resources folder it produces into my EQMac folder, THEN patching it with Secrets' patch has fixed this.

Hobart stepping up to the plate big time on his "free project". A Everquest lover this man is, even going as far as he can to keep it playable on Mac software emulation on PCs.

1. Who the hell are you?
2. This type of comment does nothing but deter people from EQmac.
3. We welcome ALL types of personalities and play styles as long as they dont break the EULA.

The server is basically 1/2 awesome fun people with a sense of humor and the other 1/2 are very reclusive and dislike any type of humor that transcends "Ogres smell tehehehe!".

The reason why i am going to play P1999 as well as Eqmac is because the communities are entirely different and i can see value in both. More choices helps everyone.

If you have an old station account you won't even need to download it from the launchpad. You should be able to log in and it should work, provided you have all access subscriptions (though I heard they made it free within 2 weeks ago)

However, all access will NOT grant you access to eqmac if you aren't already flagged. Wait for the dust to settle and I am sure they will fix it.

Any chance you could fix the eqmain.dll in your EQMac Windows Injection to work with an AMD Athlon Processor?

It seems to be the same problem we had here:

Why was PoT only recently broken into? I would imagine that with a fairly consistent population on EQMac, PoT would have been finished the same timeframe as other servers, and that everyone and their alts would be fully equipped in Quarm gear by now.

Tons of broken boss mobs that until recently were never fixed or required GM assistance to work.

Also, there really are no hardcore raid guilds on AK....Temerity is the guild that broke into time and they raid 2 - 3 days a week and with such a low population a lot of that time is spent back flagging new applicants (we dont not have the 85% rule, so every single person has to get every single flag before he/she has access to higher tiers...we are trying to get this to change soon with the addition of our new coder Hobart), and utilizing the times when you have the numbers for a tough PoP boss fight(Like someone previously mentioned, not only were some encounters broken, but were pre-nerf versions of PoP encounters most of us on EQPC never even saw).

All of us on EQmac would love to see a new guild show up that raids 5 nights a week or any casual player for that matter.

Thank you for taking the time to post a detailed explanation.

Would EQmac be free to play on for ex EQ players? My reading of Smed's post was that old players would be grandfathered into a silver account, but it's not clear to me if you can play EQmac on a silver account, or if you need gold.

Very happy for the Mac server, I know it would have hurt to lose your toons you have been working on for years.

Thank you for the reply. I will say that is a very exciting alternative. I think we are fortunate to have such great options, p1999 and EQMac.

One other question. I think one of the real draws of p1999 is the anti hacking code. The article on Cheating In Everquest (http://www.tentonhammer.com/features/everquest/hacking-eq-part-one) makes a great example of why playing on EQ live is no fun:

Suddenly a group of 8 characters appeared right in front of us. Before we had a chance to ask any questions the group ran ahead, pulled all three bosses on top of our raid and poofed out of existence. We fought valiantly, but without being fully prepared we fell. It was a wipe. Lucky for us we had managed to save a rezzer from the train, so after things looked safe again we began rezzing our raid. Then, again, this mysterious group of 8 suddenly appeared in front of us, and began killing the targets we were setting up for

People multi boxing, using MQ, and other third party tools makes the game simply unplayable for everyone else. I think I read somewhere that Naggy has been on lockdown for months on one of the progression severs by a single guy who boxes a group of six with MQ. It's terrible, and not fun.

The draw of p1999 for me was the ban on multi boxing, MQ, etc. Are any such provisions made on EQMac to prevent it from degenerating into what the live progression servers have become?

Daldaen
02-16-2012, 03:04 PM
Mac server bans MQ use I believe but I'm pretty sure boxing is allowed which is $$$$.

5. Take contents of the Resources folder from the EQMac Launchpad download and copy them INTO C:\EQMac, overwrite anything it asks ( will be a lot )
6. Change desktop to 16bit, run eqw.exe and make sure to check the box for Fix EQclinit.ini

Note* if you want the newer UI, edit eqclient.ini and change newui=FALSE to TRUE, other settings can be changed in eqclient.ini also, like new / old PC models, etc.

Heya folks


As we all know their are many many problems with p1999 which are not quite right ahem path ing in most kunark zones etc etc etc.

Even thought Eqmac is locked at pop and so has some things which are not to our time lime it those have somethings which can be used to VERIFY how things that should be in classic time line. Eqmac being free to play will only help those of use who take time to submit bugs etc on p1999 we now have an additional tool to help back up possible solutions to bugs we find in p1999.


Raiding comments. If you want to raid classic style EQ their is a guild on eqmac EQVINTAGE which does just that. I was part of this guild and had a blast. unlike here on p1999 the higher end raiding guilds respect eqvintage play style and at least through my time with eqvintage did not cock-block or purposely made efforts to prevent eqvintage from progressing.

Is there any chance of you all removing the link to Secrets patch? SOE only just decided to keep AK alive and if they suddenly start losing a load of revenue because EQ PC users are switching to AK they may well reverse that decision and then none of us will be able to play on AK.

Realistically if they were ever to release an official PC client it would come with shit like the marketplace packaged in so SOE could make some money. It would be a real shame if this caused the death of the only official server that's even close to original EQ. Perhaps as a compromise you could pass it around to P1999 members in PMs only to prevent a mass release to EQ PC players?

Realistically if they were ever to release an official PC client it would come with shit like the marketplace packaged in so SOE could make some money. It would be a real shame if this caused the death of the only official server that's even close to original EQ. Perhaps as a compromise you could pass it around to P1999 members in PMs only to prevent a mass release to EQ PC players?

This is a load of ridiculous BS. If tons of people migrate to AK they can either start charging us again or a number of a million other options.

We want as many people coming to Al'Kabor as possible, as well as p1999. Dont speak for a community that does not represent your sentiments telaman.

I want to address this whole sentiment. I mentioned this when i came to these forums about a month ago... there are certain people in certain guilds that literally are scared to death of any type of change. Even change that affects them in a tremendously positive way. About 1/2 of the population is some of the most willfully ignorant/stubborn people on the planet...and the other 1/2 are probably the best people i have met in an MMO.

There is always good with the bad, please don't think all of us are this way though. I for one, welcome everyone and have been giving away free gear like candy as have so many others.

The fact that there are some people on EQmac that have gigantic sticks permanently lodged in their anal cavities makes the server more fun in the end as well, just dont take what they say to heart.

Yea, it works on PC. Here's instructions from earlier in this thread.

Ok I had issues getting this to work, but finally got it to work properly, here's a rough guide I've drafted to help those who would like to try!

Rough Guide to play EQMAC on PC ( Tested on Windows 7 64bit)
1. Fresh Install of EQ Titanium
2. Take contests of fresh EQ Titanium installation folder and put them into an empty C:\EQMac folder
3. Unzip contents of Secret's patch zip that can be found here http://fileb.ag/0ei29cadn4k7 into C:/EQMac overwriting anything it asks to.
4. Download EQMac via the Web Launchpad 3 http://launch.soe.com/lp3/index.html?game=eqmac&skin=everquest
5. Take contents of the Resources folder from the EQMac Launchpad download and copy them INTO C:\EQMac, overwrite anything it asks ( will be a lot )
6. Change desktop to 16bit, run eqw.exe and make sure to check the box for Fix EQclinit.ini

Note* if you want the newer UI, edit eqclient.ini and change newui=FALSE to TRUE, other settings can be changed in eqclient.ini also, like new / old PC models, etc.

Is changing the desktop to 16bit a game option or a computer option? And how would that be done in Windows 7?

I'm assuming this is 16 or 32 bit color modes?

I don't know about anyone else, but I never changed it to 16 bit and it's been working fine for me. I'm also a windows 7 64-bit user.

As for the 16-bit option, I think they're referring to a computer option specifically, but I'd say try it without it first if you haven't already.

I'm still confused about the whole expansions thing. I guess it must not effect everyone because I actually just made an Iksar SK last night, and also a Vah Shir bard earlier today. Maybe it's because I'm using an older, mac-enabled (back when it was required) account?

Found this online, worth a try:


How to install
1. Install EverQuest Titanium edition and move the folder to C:\
2. Rename the EQ Titanium folder to "EQMac"
3. Download the new Intel EQMac Client located here: LaunchPad 3
4. When the new EQMac client is fully patched, find the folder (default location is C:\Users\Public\Sony Online Entertainment\EverQuest Mac or C:\Users\Default\AppData\Sony Online Entertainment\EverQuest Mac)
5. Go into the folder "EverQuest Mac" > "Contents" > "Resources"
6. In "Resources" folder, Select All > Copy > Paste to your C:\EQMac folder. Overwrite all.
7. Extract Secrets' .zip file to C:\EQMac. Overwrite all.
8. In C:\EQMac, right click eqw.exe > Properties > Compatibility Settings > Check Run as Administrator > OK.
9. Run eqw.exe
10. If you cannot get it to work (experience weird error), rerun eqw.exe and check "Fix eqclient.ini". This should fix the problem.
11. IMPORTANT: Edit eqclient.ini NewUI=TRUE instead of NewUI=FALSE (This removes the Classic and Velious UI in favor of the Luclin UI, however, the client is much more stable and actually 100% playable as opposed to playing with the older UIs. My suggestion: try the old UIs for a little bit for nostalgia purposes, but inevitably you should switch to Luclin UI for full game functionality! )
11. (Optional): Rename eqtheme.mp3, combattheme1.mp3, combattheme2.mp3, combattheme3.mp3, deaththeme.mp3, lavastorm.mp3, guk.mp3, and nektulos.mp3 to have the original classic MIDI versions restored!
12. (Optional): Go to eqclient.ini, and change LOADARMOR17 through LOADARMOR23 from =FALSE to =TRUE. Change LoadVeliousArmorsWithLuclin=FALSE to LoadVeliousArmorsWithLuclin=TRUE (This will allow you to see Velious armor skins)

Oh! You guys weren't already following Vallhalla's guide? No wonder you're still having probs :p. I would have said something about it, but I could have sworn I saw it here earlier (getting forums mixed up I guess heh).

I was in the same boat until I followed his guide. Once I did all that, it worked like a charm. Hopefully it will work the same for those of you still having problems with it. I'd say it should even be stickied somewhere.

Oh, and make sure you check the "fix eqclient.ini" option if you get a memory read error after doing everything - that did the trick for me.

I'm not speaking for the community, I'm speaking for myself. I feel like it's a legitimate concern and I'm entitled to say whatever I want about it. There's a reason they're not charging us now, so what makes you think they'll come up with another option later rather than just shutting it down? I can't read SOEs mind but they've had the option of releasing a PC client for AK for ages since that's what Hobart's been using to log in for years and have chosen not to for whatever reason.

Anyway I figured I'd ask and Pringles said no which is fine. In the end, no one really knows what will happen with this client so I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Yeah, that's most likely what it is. I'm not sure why exactly, but from what I understand, it needs to be in the root of the C drive. I've got a friend who's main drive is actually set to H for some reason, so I'll try installing on his later and see how it goes.

EQ wouldn't download for me off the eqmac patcher site when the game wasn't installed under C:\EQMac. I don't have the space on my C drive partition so I just created a symlink from c:\EQMac pointing to the directory on my D drive.

This is great! Thanks for sharing information on how to set this up. Just got in and made a necromancer to start out with. No 50% pet penalty what I gather. A friendly cleric went by and gave me 20 plat and some caster items. Seems to be a great community.

The population seems to be a bit low though, more so than P1999. Will still stay on P1999 mainly, but it's cool to be able to play a legit PoP server.

A few things would be great to solve though;
- Is there anyway to cap the framerate so that mouse look won't be so slow in x-axis?
- The mouse pointer gets stuck inside the window, and I have to alt-tab to get it outside. This is just a minor annoyance, but anyone knows if it can be fixed?

I'm curious about those two issues myself actually, specifically the fps cap. On EQ PC, they have the advanced graphics options with the fps slider, but I guess it hadn't been implemented back when this server stopped receiving updates. I'm hoping there's a console command or maybe an ini change that can do it.

Alacres
02-19-2012, 07:57 AM
Well, I didn't have any luck finding anything for the fps issue in the ini (then again, I'm not really sure what to look for heh), but I did find something else pretty interesting. I remember hearing people talk about enabling the old velious textures for armor (the textures that were supposedly in the game back before the Luclin models were introduced), but on the PC, there were apparently some pretty bad graphical anomalies when enabling them through the ini.

So, out of curiosity, I tried enabling them in the EQMac ini, took a run around PoK, and wow, they all seem to work! Some of the velious textures look pretty incredible and many are certainly a step above the single default texture that's used for every type of armor. It definitely adds some variety to how people look. Granted, since there aren't many people online right now, I've only witnessed the new textures on NPCs, but I expect it to work just the same with with player's armor as well.

In case any of you want to give this a try, all you need to do is go into the eqclient.ini and change these files from FALSE to TRUE -

LoadVeliousArmorsWithLuclin=TRUE
LoadArmor17=TRUE
LoadArmor18=TRUE
LoadArmor19=TRUE
LoadArmor20=TRUE
LoadArmor21=TRUE
LoadArmor22=TRUE
LoadArmor23=TRUE

I only use the old models myself so I'm not really sure if this first one is necessary, or if it even actually works with Luclin models, but I'll check it out in a little bit.

Sigh, it's a shame these textures will only appear client-side (only to us and those who also have the ini options set the same), but it's better than nothing. I really like a lot of the velious textures, so even if I'll be one of the few actually seeing them, that's cool with me.

Edit: Just a little update - I just tried the Velious textures with the Luclin models and yeah... they don't work to well on them. They only seem to partially cover the body. Nonetheless, it's pretty cool seeing some of the different concepts the artists came up with. I wasn't even aware they had designed velious textures for the luclin models period, so it was interesting to see.

Now if only they could be fixed and implemented in the game so we could finally have some aesthetic variety when it comes to armor. One can dream anyway :p.

Edit Edit: This thread will give you an idea of how most of the velious textures look for each race - http://www.eqemulator.org/forums/showthread.php?t=29595

You need to use EQPlayNice for this, like we used to "back in the day".

He transfered it to the C drive and it still did not work, he still has wsock32.dll too... It's a mystery.

The problem I am having, is that I can't get any Luclin models in game. Even setting all to "TRUE" in the eqclient.ini has no effect.

Could this be due to the expac bug mentioned above? Using either my old EQLive accounts, or making a new one Kunark and beyond are not enabled.

So, I can get in, but only the original old world.

To that extent, Luclin models and PoK will be open to new accounts at that time. If you're having issues enabling Luclin models after that point (the in game configuration seems to have problems reading PC memory) everything can be edited in the EQClient.ini file in your base folder. Initiate a search for it.

Found a workaround. Client seems kind of wonky but maybe that's because I need to change some settings, but downloading the browser client (http://launch.soe.com/lp3/index.html?game=eqmac&skin=everquest) and then copying the files within the Resources folder it produces into my EQMac folder, THEN patching it with Secrets' patch has fixed this.

Where is this resource folder located?

In case any of you want to give this a try, all you need to do is go into the eqclient.ini and change these files from FALSE to TRUE -

LoadVeliousArmorsWithLuclin=TRUE
LoadArmor17=TRUE
LoadArmor18=TRUE
LoadArmor19=TRUE
LoadArmor20=TRUE
LoadArmor21=TRUE
LoadArmor22=TRUE
LoadArmor23=TRUE

Edit Edit: This thread will give you an idea of how most of the velious textures look for each race - http://www.eqemulator.org/forums/showthread.php?t=29595

That's really interesting, thanks a lot for sharing. The velious armors are very welcome after all this time with P1999. The luclin velious models sounds crazy, have to try em.



"Error 1017: Cannot login to the everquest server you may need to re-run the Udate Patch Repeatedly seeing this message indicates a loss of connectivity to the Patch Server. This is usually temporary"


I got this message as well after installing it on S:\EQMac. So I did a mklink from C:\EQMac like someone else mentioned in this thread, and after that it started to work. Seems like it can't find the files to load when you try to log in.

If you've installed in on any other drive than C. Open cmd and type;

mklink /D C:\EQMac X:\EQMac

where X:\EQMac is the directory where you installed it.

If it complains you may have to delete any directory named C:\EQMac in existance and type the command again. It will create the folder for you.

You don't have to reinstall EQ Titanium, just do the mklink to the directory where everything is already installed.

That should cure the login errors. Also, be sure to check the fix eqclient.ini box.


I've found this client to be kind of unstable though. Whenever you look through a polygon model, everything will go whack for a moment. This is very noticeable when you're meleeing and the head movement pokes through the foe. Loading times upon zoning is a lot quicker than P1999 though, so it has its up and downs.

The worst part is probably that the server is so empty. Almost all the time I was the only one in the zone. Even EC had like 2 players. Did a couple of /whos and found that there was a total of between 3 to 7 of every class online that was not anonymous. I hope the population will improve a lot in the coming weeks when the word of mouth goes around, since it's free, official and locked at PoP, which should interest a lot of former players.

I have a question to the experts, out of curiosity...

I used to have a Station account a LONG time ago (along with my high level characters that I have since cancelled etc). I have the EQ Titanium discs in my garage somewhere so I could find them and do a clean install.

Do I need anything special to come play on EQMac as far as a "registry key" or anything?

I am 99% sure I forgot my station name/password but I could probably email their support people and figure it out.

Something about being able to play EQ again up through PoP is very appealing to me. My favorite times were basically Classic/Kunark, and Luclin for the introduction of the AAs. After that the game started to get watered down a bit...

I can log in fine and select and join one of the two(?!) Al'Kabor servers. It loads for 3s and hits me with a Windows memory error even though I can hear the music playing during the loading screen process.

tried wineg2? (from lavishsoft, free to sign up) i have to run that in order to even get eq to work properly and not warp all over the place in super speedy mode. I had no issue on XP, but wouldn't work when i went to windows 7 64bit until i used wineq2

it handles window mode and dual core afinity for you. I run eq in windowed mode so i can have my browser beside it (for maps, ah tracker,quest info) or running movies while i grind. (wish i had a second monitor for all this crap but no room on my desk) so not sure if that makes a difference

Nvidia 8800 GT and Intel Core Duo E8200.

Yes.



3. Download the new Intel EQMac Client located here: LaunchPad 3
4. When the new EQMac client is fully patched, find the folder (default location is C:\Users\Public\Sony Online Entertainment\EverQuest Mac or C:\Users\Default\AppData\Sony Online Entertainment\EverQuest Mac)
Does this mean you have to run some patch option before copying over the "Resources" folder? Cus I only ran that browser launchpad and it downloaded 1.9gb of files resulting in the Mac EQ folder under users/blah blah.



Turning off sound on my laptop crashes the game after server select identical to my main pc issue.

I also hit F9 twice to get the behind view, then zoomed out with the Delete key. Then I went into the Mouse options and selected Invert Y Axis. Makes for a decent ghetto 3rd person view. But yeah, thing is your character has seizures when you turn with your mouse.

Since there's no built in Framerate limiting like the newer clients have, I also had to edit the eqw.ini to cap the fps by editting MaxFPS=30 so the turning on the X axis wasn't assfuck slow. Seems to help a bit, not as fast as I would like and it fucks up sometimes after alt-tabbing by going back to slow turning mode.

So...I'm not sure how much time and effort I would spend on this server. According to someone on FOH, the PC workaround will probably be fixed/removed soon. It will be interesting to see if they come out with a legit patcher. I guess for now play for fun, but don't be too disappointed if it doesn't last. I don't know if this information is reliable, but I wouldn't doubt it.

Windows patcher being fixed soon (*very* legit source). Hobart considers it a hack and apparently there is a tested Ghost Kill working thanks to the Windows Patcher. Pretty fucked up I hope they do close the Windows Patcher asap and if there is ALREADY a Ghost Kill then I doubt they will ever officially release a windows patcher and fuck why do people have to be so selfish and ruin it for everyone else? I mean fuck I've done my fair share of hacking in my day but only in modern eq when nobody gave a fuck cuz the game was dead. Hacking on EQMac is just fucked up... go fucking play elsewhere if you're gonna hack.

I was able to setup and log in on a PC (AMD CPU no less) with little issue. Its pretty sweet. You can be pretty sure they will patch this out eventually. The server was intended to be truely MAC and now that its F2p, I'm sure they don't want a ton of free loaders on a non-marketplace server. They'd rather push us to a true live server so they can grab some cash occasionally from us.

If you really want to play on it, I'd recommend looking into setting up a hackintosh. A Mac OSX VM may suffice as well. Just incase they do patch PC exploit support out down the road and you're not left in the dark suddenly.

I did notice the population is way lower than here on p99 last night. Seemed like about or a little more than half. I couldn't find more than 15 of any one single class from /who all <class>

Hi,

I followed valhallas guide with the 12 steps, i got the client to load. on server select it shows 4 available servers. two alkabor and 2 of some random thing.

I pick the alkabor one and then it starts to load but then it says i didnt i have a 1017 error and to either patch or try again later. What do i do?

If someone can help me and it would be easier i can pm my phone number. would like to get this working today.

Make sure that you've read the earlier posts about installing it in C:\EQMac. If you can't install it there due to lack of space, do a mklink to your current directory. I explained how to do that in an earlier post as well.

That should do it. Good luck

Since there's no built in Framerate limiting like the newer clients have, I also had to edit the eqw.ini to cap the fps by editting MaxFPS=30 so the turning on the X axis wasn't assfuck slow. Seems to help a bit, not as fast as I would like and it fucks up sometimes after alt-tabbing by going back to slow turning mode.

I'm having this problem with right-click mouselook where X axis is super slow, and Y is super fast also. I changed MaxFPS in eqw.ini to 30 but it hasn't made any difference.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Well, I tried this out. Mouselook along x axis is insanely slow. You can't use eqplaynice or wineq as they cause a memory error. None of the 3rd person views are usable for me, and with it possibly being patched out, frankly, just too much hassle and control issues for me to deal with. Ah well.

OK since i really have no other games to play I messed with the camera a bit. Basically if you want a 3rd person camera that follows your character when you turn etc (you have to keyboard turn), go to the second view with f9 that camera turns when you turn, then use alt 3 and 9 on numpad to set angle, and alt 1 and 7 on numpad to set distance from character and should be able to get a decent view. Sucks that you can't really use mouselook but, shrug. Just figured I'd mention this.

Just a bit more, 2nd camera that moves when you turn with f9, get a good distance for you from your char, invert Y axis on mouse and max mouse sensitivity and you can mouselook decently also. It's a little jumpy but not too shabby.

Nother edit. I didn't like not being able to zoom in out with mouse, so I wrote a script to do this and figured I'd post it. Source is in the zip if you want to look/change it. Basically hooks the mouse wheel, and sends 1 or 7 numpad 8x per tick of scroll wheel. Alt Home pauses it and returns scroll to normal function. Just right click icon in system tray and select exit to exit it.

Make sure you don't use any weird special characters on password creation. QWERTZ <-> QWERTY made me go crazy :)

I have a level 64 warrior (decently geared) and a level 61 cleric, if anyone needs help.

I haven't played in a while (got rid of my old Mac), but am back online!

Toss me a message in-game, Gremm or Porkie.

I bet that's it, I forgot my password for the station can't have my usual * in it and I think I was trying to log in with it still in there. Will try when I get home, thanks.

Edit: Yep! Got it working. Now I gotta figure out eqwin, I'd prefer not to use it but I guess we have to.

Can't scroll out to 3rd person
Graphic Glitches
Forced EQWin
No second hotbar
Etc. etc.

Was interested in playing a legit PoP server but there's just to much that I don't like. I think I will stick to P99.

This thread should probably moved to off topic by now.

Anyways, has anyone else had issues with dropping from chat channels using this client? For example, that server's main serverwide channel is 'alliance'. Players are encouraged to "/autojoin alliance" to be able to cope with the small population, find groups, trade, and be informed of rotting loots.

Currently, everytime I re-log in or zone, It will stay connected for 10-20 seconds before disconnecting, without any sort of d/c message; it just goes silent.

I just did a fresh install following Vallhalla's steps. Trying to log in I get the 0009 error and have a password with just numbers and alphabet characters. Is anyone else getting this? Was the windows log in disabled or am I missing something?

I am getting this as well now. This morning I could log in without issue. Hopefully they didn't patch this exploit.

Looks like others can't log in over at eqmac.com

I just followed Vallhalla's steps, i can get into the game but when im online i cant get it to fullscreen mode. Alt + enter wont work, and when i try to change the resolution the game crashes. Its only a pseudo fullscreen mode since i can see the desktop but cant click it. Im playing on windows 7. Also they keyboard behavour is weird, i cant write a "/" , instead it writes a "&" . But i cant find the "/" anywhere on my keyboard when im online. Mouse scroll or any 3rd person doesnt seem to work either :(

When i try WinEQ2 i dont have any "everquest" option. Any help?

Yes, play on a real server.

FYI for anyone still wondering - you can run this fullscreen using an eqgame.exe patchme shortcut.

The login interface doesn't refresh correctly but in-game it's perfect.

Hmm, I tried getting on this server but I keep getting disconnected after choosing Al'Kabor.

I did the following:

-Fresh install of EQ Titanium
-Copied every file from that fresh install into a new folder named EQMac right on my C: drive.
-Downloaded and unzipped Secrets' patch, overwriting everything.
-Downloaded EQMac from https://launch.soe.com/lp3/index.html?game=eqmac
-Copied everything in the Resource folder from that client into my EQMac folder (not the Resource folder inside the EQMac, but rather, into EQMac itself)

So I'm reading their forums....I don't know what all has gone on over there but looks like a bunch of p99ers have behaved like a bunch of total asshats....or a bunch of MAC users never experienced real EQ. Bertoxx was a bigger cesspool during classic era than p99 has ever been, imo.

Just takes a couple bad apples I guess.
