The sixth EQ2 expansion.
All Game play
Legends Of Norrath
Voice Chat (It says it can not find microphone but it still works flawlessly!)
Shader 3.0 with complex shader distance (minor texture glitches but this seams to also occur on native Windows for some users)
ProfitUI (latest autoupdate version from Java updater) + EQ2MAPS (From PyEQ2MAP-Updater)
What does not
Shadows dose not work for me.
If I use GPU shadows I get alot of black. and CPU Shadows simply dont do anything.
What was not tested
Fullscreen was not tested. (but others have reported problems, personaly I dont care)
Installing was not tested.
What I did was copy my EverQuest II folder to a newly created WINEPREFIX with no additional tweeks.
I tested on a newly created WINEPREFIX with no tweeks, no winetricks, no regestry edits. As WineHQ has such very restricted descriptions of there ratings this will fall under a Silver rating. Though I personaly think it should be a Gold rating atleast. As with the strict formulation of ratings for Wine MANY games run natvily in MS Windows would not even reach gold rating. The few glicthes that remain for EQ2 are now all cosmetic and has a very small to no inpact on my Gameplay experience. Worth mentioning is also that EQ2 now seams noticably more stable in Wine than for many Windows users. My personal Rating would be 9/10

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.
