What works

Installation/Patching

Core game functionality

In-game Browser

Fullscreen and Windowed modes

What does not

Graphics - low framerates in all situations, strange artifacts on tall objects in the distance

Mouse/Resolution - mouse was limited and could not reach the bottom right corner of the screen. The workaround is to change the graphics resolution and change it back. This was required every time.

What was not tested

Raiding

Additional Comments

Test was performed with Wine 2.2 and Wine-Staging 2.2.

My graphics card is a GT 750M. I had less than 10 FPS on vanilla Wine. I saw improvement to 25 FPS using Wine-Staging and enabling CSMT. Both scores are low compared to Windows (45+ FPS).

Fonts in the installer were rough and blurry, often hard to read. However, I see similar font issues in winecfg.

HowTo / Notes

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.
