A Free-To-Play version of EverQuest II. It uses the same game and graphics engine, but a different patcher and server list.
Playing the game.Â The line "r_font_ft 0" (not including the quotes) must be appended to eq2_default.ini, but the game plays fine afterwards.
What does not
Installing and updating.Â The installer/updater does not work under Wine.Â Copying over the program directory from a Windows install is necessary initially and after any updates.

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.
