Default ERROR Please delete wsock32.dll and eqgame.dll from EQT Directory, files don't exist?

I'm actually so confused, I already fixed the whole "D:\EQ P99\eqgame.exe" patchme. error but now I'm getting a error saying, please delete wsock32.dll and eqgame.dll from you EQ Titanium Directory but the files do not exist. Hope somebody has a fix for this.

Thanks! Mike.

This might be related to an antivirus or system guardian style program blocking the extraction of the '.dll' files to your system.

Try temporarily disabling any antivirus or defender application if present. Either way, download the Project 1999 Patch Files and extract them again into your Everquest directory overwriting all files asked. If you think you may have inadvertently patched the Titanium client to Live, then you should start the install process over with a clean install.

Here is a link to the Install Guide for reference.

Here is a post regarding the false-positive virus flagging of '.dll' files that some people have encountered.

It appears at least one other person has run into something similar here.

I get those when I run as administrator but not when I just right click, open. If I just open it normie style, I see the server screen.

I got mine to work again, not sure if you've played on here but make sure you're running off a shortcut with patchme on it and admin also put it on win xp sp 2 compatibility. i forgot about all of that, although my main client just errors out so now my UI is destroyed.

You can copy your char's ini files to the working installation... That will restore their UI layouts so long as the screen resolution is the same.

patchme? I've no idea what that is xD

Is this something I missed in the original instructions?

I did play at the beginning of the year for a bit, but somehow I never ran into any of these issues.

i'm also kinda afraid my character is gone xD
