A Free-To-Play version of EverQuest II. It uses the same game and graphics engine, but a different patcher and server list.
Installation, Extended gameplay
What does not
What was not tested
Probably quite a bit.
Had to use winetricks to install ie8, crypt32. Other than that everything seemed to work great! I did install d3dx9 with winetricks because I thought I had some graphics problems with the fglrx driver, however, this may not have been necessary.

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.
