Default DB error - invalid password

I just finished installing and swapping around the necessary files to run p1999. However, when I try to log into the server I get an invalid password message. 1st, I'm not sure where I get my account. Is it the account I'm using now on these forums? Is it the account I made and tried (and failed) on eqemu's site? I'm sure I'm just missing something minor but it is making me unable to play. Anyone have any advice or suggestions? Also eqhost is set to their new adress so that shouldn't be the problem.

you need to setup an account on eqemu's site, that one you use for the login.

Send a message via AIM to Xumosa

go to eqemu's main webpage located here

Then log into that account

On the top bar of this screen it will shows home, forums, member list etc...
1 of the options should be user CP, click on that

Once you're on that page on the left hand side there will be a bar of more options click on "Login Server Accounts"

When you are on that screen make sure there is an account where it says Account 1:

If there isnt then click "create new LS account" and create it

Use the account you just made to log into the login server on EQ

Hope this helps if you have any more questions just ask [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

New user here and having the same problem. Do the emulator people have to allow our usernames and passwords to work? Also is the game login screen being used the same as the original version? Ex/ station account and station password?

FYI this is not a database problem or password problem. It is a connection problem. I've had my EMU account for years, I know my password is typed in correctly and i am still getting an invalid password response or a delayed response or a no response at all on any of my 3 EMU accounts. Then when I do get in, I'm getting tremendous lag. My ping may only say 60-110ms but the delay in response from the server is enormous. No other pages/games or connections are delayed or slowed down at any level. I do not know the solution. Only the problem.
