Wanted to follow up with my findings. I experimented with wined3d and different versions of the directx dlls. Some of them are incompatible with wineq2, it won't even launch. The ones that would allow it to launch seemed to help a bit, but still had several bad device failed messages. I eventually tried without wineq2 and have not had a crash since when using the directx 8 dlls. There was a certain spot in both howling stones and tower of frozen shadow that was giving me the error all the time. Since the change, I haven't had any issue there or anywhere else. I don't know if its completely solved, but sure seems to be.

Yeah, good idea. I downloaded the WineD3D files from https://fdossena.com/?p=wined3d/index.frag or just google "WineD3D".

Unzip the package and view the readme. It gives instructions for how to use the files for different directX versions. It is working well for me with the DirectX 8 files. All you have to do is copy the files the readme specifies into your EQ directory. From there, just launch the game as normal. Notably, this did not solve the problem when I tried to combine wineq2 with wineD3D, so it maybe be an either/or situation.

Here is the video mode settings from my ini.

[VideoMode]
WindowedWidth=1900
WindowedHeight=1050
Width=1900
Height=1050
FullscreenBitsPerPixel=32
FullscreenRefreshRate=0
WidthWindowed=1900
HeightWindowed=1050
WinEQWidth=1900
WinEQHeight=1050
I have a Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti, running driver version 456.71. I always run in windowed mode and never use alt+enter to go to fullscreen. Hope this helps someone in the future.

I tried this solution, but my NVidia card still locked up.

Just to make sure everyone knows, there are many threads that I believe relate to this issue. Here are a few:

https://www.project1999.com/forums/s...d.php?t=363133
https://www.project1999.com/forums/s...d.php?t=359131
https://www.project1999.com/forums/s...d.php?t=369607
https://www.project1999.com/forums/s....php?p=3185543

Hopefully some smart people will be able to find a solution for us soon. These random crashes are making me a worse cleric than I already was.

if you change the version of your nvidia drivers you can get better results

if you use wineq2, dgvoodoo and wined3d wont work.
wineq2 needs directx9

i dont use direct x at all, i use mesa plus dxvk which is vulkan.
if you only play p99, use linux as the setup that many use is reproducible.
there is almost no bugs or problems. reason i say almost is, i use p99-mimd to fix my only problem.

The dgvoodoo thing worked for my reset device/screen lockups on my Nvidia RTX win10 machine.
