A Free-To-Play version of EverQuest II. It uses the same game and graphics engine, but a different patcher and server list.
Installer and Launchpad launcher
Character creation and gameplay
What does not
Shader Model 3 graphics settings
What was not tested
extended gameplay (e.g. more than 30min)
How to get the installer and launchpad to run. winetricks corefonts d3dx9 flash ie8 gecko120 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 crypt32 xact you will have to hold down alt and drag the top window out of the way of the download app and on launchpad to see the login stuff. Also launchpad does crash alot but at least it patches. Thanks to a winehq DC Universe launcher forum posting and a crossover linux forum posting for the information to get this going.

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.
