Default Getting Started Guide and Forum Rules

Welcome to Project 1999!

Project 1999 is a free to play, emulated classic Everquest server with the goal of recreating Everquest as it was between 1999 and 2001.

Before starting, please take a moment to review the Project 1999 Play Nice Policy and Server Rules

Third party programs (MQ2 or SEQ, for example), Real Money Trades (RMT), and multi-boxing are not allowed on this server, and will result in a permanent ban for your account.

1. Server Information

Project 1999 (1): The Scars of Velious

This is our primary server, inheriting all base nicknames such as 'p99', 'p1999', and more specifically 'blue' (When being compared to PvP).
This is a Non-PvP (PvE) Server.
This server is currently in the Scars of Velious expansion.

Project 1999 (2): Red (PvP, Velious)

This is our PvP Server, nicknamed 'red1999', 'red99', 'p99red', or simply 'red'.
This server is currently in the Scars of Velious expansion.

2. Getting Started - Play Guide

In order to play on Project 1999 you must obtain a copy of Everquest: Titanium Edition. The Titanium client is available for download on multiple sites across the web.

2.1 Installation

Mac Users Click Here

Install Everquest Titanium to a fresh directory. This directory must be separate from any live Everquest installs and dedicated to EQEmulator. It is highly recommended you do not install Titanium to your program files folder if running Windows Vista/7/8/10.

For help installing Everquest from an ISO or other disc-based image file, please follow the instructions on this wiki page.

DO NOT PATCH EVERQUEST, DO NOT RUN EVERQUEST.EXE OR EQGAME.EXE. If you patch your Titanium install you will need to uninstall and start over.

You must download the required Spell and File changes in order to play on Project 1999. You can find them here. Find the latest Patch notes and download and extract the files into your Everquest directory.

Included in the spell files is Launch Titanium.bat - this is the file you will use to launch Everquest after you have completed the remaining steps. If you would like to create a shortcut, be sure it points to this file.

Alternatively, right click eqgame.exe and click create shortcut. Right click your newly created shortcut, and in the target line add patchme to the end of the path, outside the quotes if they are present. Click OK. You may use this shortcut or Launch Titanium.bat to run everquest after you have completed installation.

2.2 Forum and Loginserver Accounts

2.2a Forum Account

You will need to create a Project 1999 forum account. Please visit and follow the instructions in Step 1.

Please be sure to validate your forum account by following the link provided in your E-mail.

The forums are a great place to meet new players, find information, sell your wares, and get CSR assistance. See section 3 for forum rules.

New and returning players please note: You do not need an account to play on Project 1999 any longer. Please skip the Eqemulator forum account link step if you do not have an Eqemulator forum account.

2.2b Loginserver Account

Once you have validated your Project 1999 Forum Account, create a Loginserver account by following the instructions in Step 4.

You are also strongly advised to attach an SMS Phone Number to your account for security reasons. Although this is not required, it is the only way to recover loginserver passwords.

2.3 File Deletions

The following files must renamed or removed from the Everquest Titanium directory.


2.4 Completed Installation

You have successfully completed your installation and setup of Project 1999. You will now be able to run the client and connect to the server. Be sure to use Launch Titanium.bat or the shortcut you created in 2.1 Installation to run Everquest.

Additionally, you may want to explore the options listed below, or visit our forum for more custom UI's, spell effects, and fixes.

If you wish to play on Project 1999 PvP Server (Red), you must first create and log in a character on blue

2.5 Optional WinEQ

Many users experience problems with proper CPU/Core Utilization or crashing which can be fixed by using WinEQ2. You can download this program from Lavishsoft.

2.6 Optional Files

These files are not included in the EQEmulator Launcher, nor are they required to play on either server. You may utilize them for your own enjoyment/experience.

To experience the Velious style user interface, navigate to your EQ Directory, then into your UIFiles folder. Create a folder named 'velious'. Download and extract this ZIP file into that folder: Velious UI Files
To use this interface in game, you must /loadskin velious.

To hear the old style midi songs for loading, death, and combat, move the following files out of your EQ Directory (Into a Backup Folder):


2.7 Technical Discussion Forum

If you experience problems with running Everquest after following these instructions, please visit the Technical Discussion Forum and read the FAQ

3. Forum Rules

The Project 1999 forums serve as a hub of the community where players can discuss all aspects of the game. This is the first place people come when they are looking to join our community. These rules are in place to attract more members to the community, and assist existing members of the community.

The staff reserves the right to remove any post or thread determined to be detrimental to the community, however the following basic rules apply to all forums, including the “Rants and Flames” sections of the forums.

Stay out of Real Life
Many people expect to keep personal and real life matters separate from those that happen in the game. We expect all forum members to respect each other's privacy.

You may not ever post any real life information about another user, including but not limited to: name, address, phone numbers, pictures, employer's, associates, etc. This also extends to protect other forms of communication including IM Aliases, email addresses, social media accounts etc.

There is zero tolerance for posting someone’s real life information. Those that violate this rule will be banned and such posts will be deleted.

Server Negativity
Spreading negative propaganda about the server and serving no purpose other than to slander the community and it's staff will not be allowed.

The staff works hard to provide this experience to you, and we will not tolerate negative conjecture about our agendas or actions. This includes negative or tasteless comments about current or former staff members. Constructive feedback via substantiated bug reports is always appreciated.

Real Money Trades (RMT)
No discussions about RMT of any kind. If you suspect a player of participating in RMT, use the petition forum.

Content is expected to remain work friendly. Do not post graphic/gross/disturbing images. This includes forum avatars and signatures, and links to other content.

Blue and Red server forums
Blue server specific threads / posts should be kept on the blue server section of the forums.
Red server specific threads / posts should be kept on the red server section of the forums.

Do not spam the forums. Multiple threads or posts of the same content, phrase, or message, will be considered as spam and deleted.

Racism / hate speech
Racism and or hate speech, disguised or not, will not be tolerated. This includes slurs / derogatory speech regarding sexual orientation.

Swearing / Cursing
Keep thread subjects clean. Swearing/Cursing is allowed within threads, to an extent. Don't overdo it.

Avatars and Signatures
All Avatars and signatures must not contain any explicit or NSFW content. Signatures must be no higher than 150 pixels, and no wider than 500 pixels. If there are multiple images, or images as well as text, the combination must not exceed the height of what a single 200 pixel image would cover.

Rants and Flames
Any rant or flame against a player or guild should be contained inside of the Rants and Flames forum of the respective Blue or Red server forums. Do not bash a guild or a player outside of Rants and Flames.

Off Topic
Any content not related to Project 1999 should be posted in the “Off Topic” section of the forums. All other forum rules still apply

If you must troll another user, keep it contained to Rants and Flames. Don’t over do it.

Forum accounts created for the sole purpose of trolling are not allowed.

We encourage you to list your in-game characters in your signature so other forum users may know who your characters are in game. Its no fun reading posts from AnonymousForumTroll01 without knowing who they are in game, and this does not foster community growth.

Forum suspensions / bans
If you are forum suspended, this is not an invitation to make a new account and continue posting. Wait out your suspension before you start posting again. You were suspended for a reason. The staff reserves the right to adjust suspension times accordingly.

If you are forum banned, this is not an invitation to make a new account and continue posting. Instead, do not get banned in the first place.

Multiple forum suspensions can and will result in a permanent forum ban, any new forum accounts will be banned on sight for previous account actions. Multiple forum suspensions / bans can result in in-game account suspensions or bans.

Reporting content
The staff does not and can not read every post or thread. If you spot a post or thread that violates the above rules, please PM a member of the staff, or post in the petitions forum so that it can be reviewed.

As always, questions or comments can be submitted privately in our petition forums, or via PM directly to a member of the staff.
