A Free-To-Play version of EverQuest II. It uses the same game and graphics engine, but a different patcher and server list.
Game Client -Environmental Sounds. -Music -Most graphics (balanced and below tested) -General Game functions (npc interaction, moving, etc.)
What does not
Patcher -Doesn't work at all. Game Client -Minor graphical glitches like white spaces on the screen. -Voice Chat (didn't even pickup my headset and game slows to a crawl when you access voice chat options)
What was not tested
Raids Instances Quality settings above balanced (barely run under windows)
You have to add "r_font_ft 0" to the eq2_default.ini to get the client to work. And execute EverQuest2.exe instead of LaunchPad.exe because the LaunchPad doesn't work at all. Also copy files from a windows install. I normally just copy files for windows installs also patching takes a long time.

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.
