What does not

Loading in any graphics setting above "Very High Performance"
What was not tested
In Game Voice Chat
Legends of Norrath Minigame
Had to put the following line in eq2.ini: r_font_ft 0 (Even though the howto says not needed unless you are using wine 1.01 or lower) Have to set the graphics (Run eq2settings.exe) to "Very High Performance" or lower to load game and any time any load screen arrives (This includes changing zones, entering houses, etc...). Once in a zone it will run on the highest graphics settings. Crashes if settings aren't changed before loading. There are some lagging elements no matter what settings are selected & some windows don't register "mouse over" properly. When installing mounts 2nd DVD to next available drive letter. Computer: AMD Athalon II X6 3.2Ghz (Six core), HIS ATI 5770HD 1GB (Proprietary graphics driver), 8GB Kingston 1600 DDR3, 7200RPM 1TB WD 64MB cache.

I'd like to remind everyone, that tho shader 3.0 is in fact awesome and better than 1.0, though please before we start complaining about bugs and whatnot especially with shader 3.0 please remember that its buggy in windows too, and try to get bugs that are only in wine only please.
If we can get this working and looking exactly the same in windows and linux and there's still stupid bugs that SOE wont fix that makes the game platinum here even tho there are major graphical glitches.
Please everyone remember that this is a buggy buggy game. Please try to only post here about bugs that are not present in windows. Sometimes its really hard to tell the difference between bugs in wine and bugs in Everquest yourself.
Please Please, before you submit bug reports or testing feedback. If at all possible try to compare anything you do here in Linux with the same thing in windows.
The game requires you to run the newest version of the game, so nobody uses an older version. Because of this, the only "versions" we maintain are the full install client and the streaming install client. Please place all test results in the proper one.
EverQuest II Extended has been merged with the Live game. The Steam version is a wrapper around the Full Install Client and still uses Launchpad.
