Default want to thank

forget which place on this forum or who

but it solved pretty much every issue i had noticed
say pretty much cause dont know if is some i have not noticed

but they said use compatibility mode with win xp2
i looked all over for it on the bat file shortcut well not there that i could find in its properties
so i said to self i know exe files have that and went to the actual eq exe and set it
to the win xp2 compatibility mode

so thanks for pointing me in a direction cause at that point it fixed the game for me

thou it still dont fix if you go look at desktop game switches back to window mode

Yeah that last bit is something I've lived with since live. I just alt-enter back to fullscreen after tabbing out on the rare occasion I use fullscreen now. I mostly play in a window on a 2nd 4k monitor - at 200% scaling I can read everything with the window on half the monitor.

If you must do fullscreen check out borderlessgaming (or borderless gaming) on this forum. I think I remember reading a thread on it where people have your same usage scenario. Just remember to look at the download page - one of the links wants $ for it, the other is free.

I have had slightly better results with Compatibility Mode for XP Service Pack 3 rather than Service Pack 2.

Your mileage may vary.

Good luck! If you find a config that works - post it! I've learned to live with the "half monitor window" mode - although it's somewhat annoying that the client always captures my mousewheel, so when I'm scrolling the wiki my chat boxes go nuts.
