The sixth EQ2 expansion.
Everything tested, endgame raiding and grouping.
Every SF group/raid zone.
Every TSO raid zone and a few group zones.
Desktop compositing while raiding.
Ingame VC if hardware acceleration disabled through winecfg. (driver issue)
What does not
3.0 shader (GLSL has bad performance on my comp so it has to be disabled).
There is a bug that causes everything but the UI to go black, sometimes changing the settings works, sometimes not. It only appears in a few zones (Lavastorm, Icy Keep, VP and KP around Karnor's Castle).
What was not tested
Lower tier group/raid zones.
Fullscreen (I never play fullscreen because I want full access to my desktop at all times so it was not tested).
Very playable for me allthough GLSL shaders does not work well on my intel graphics card and causes extreme lag but even though this prevents me from using the 3.0 shaders in game I have less graphics corruption than on my windows computor using a ATI card. In order to reach gold for me the bug that is most likely a lighting bug must be resolved a GLSL performance for my card must increase.

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.
