HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
EQ2 is rated "garbage" with Wine versions above 1.1.18 and below 1.2-rc7. Please install Wine 1.2-rc7 or higher, as 1.1.18 will necessitate some irritating registry changes, documented below.

When EQ2 starts for the first time, it will try to run in full-screen mode  This is not supported in Wine, but you can easily switch to windowed mode by alt-tabbing to another window. If you have a dual monitor setup, your fonts will then be twice as wide as they should be; restarting the game fixes this.This isn't true for all users, but it may affect you.

Please ensure your system (and especially your graphics card) meets the minumum requirements set by Sony Online Entertainment for running this game.

To run launchpad 3, you need to install ie8 with winetricks.

Suggested registry settings for Wine 1.1.18 (you do not need these for 1.2-rc7 and up):

HKEY_CURRENT_USER -
  Software -
    Wine -
      Direct3D - (you'll have to create this folder)
        DirectDrawRenderer -> opengl
        OffScreenRenderingMode -> fbo (with newer video cards)
        PixelShaderMode -> enabled
        RenderTargetLockMode -> texdraw


Also, for 1.01, you will need to edit eq2.ini to disable some font rendering. Put the following line in eq2.ini:

r_font_ft 0 (Not needed unless you are using wine 1.01 or lower)

For wine 1.1.18 and lower: wine_gecko crashes the patcher screen (no BITS support in wine yet. See bug 6253) so if you want to run patcher, rename the HKCU/wine/MSHTML. That should disable Gecko. Or, you can simply not install wine_gecko in the first place. With 1.27-rc7 some functionailty of gecko with the launcher may or may not work, but it wont crash the game.
Download Locations
The station launcher is no longer supported by SOE. Launchpad 4 is now the default launcher. Using any other will cause it to upgrade itself to Launchpad 4. It can be downloaded directly from:

http://launch.soe.com/eq2//
Versions of EverQuest II

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.
