Login error

Postby Glauri » Fri Aug 26, 2016 3:36 pm

Anyone else getting a login error? Or is it just me? It seems related to some patch...

Never mind -- guess it was just me. A full file check seems to have taken care of whatever the issue was. :)

I've had the same problem before as well. EQresource has a good little trick to avoid the patcher all together.

Hope that helps for next time

I rarely use the launcher/patcher thing anymore, especially since that SoE/DB fool called out hackers like he did. I see our good man Pinky (aka Hortonn) has already posted the best description of the patcher workaround.

When I try to set up the shortcut, and type in the ":patchme", I get a msg saying that the name C:\Everquest\eqgame.exe specified in the Target box is not valid. No clue why -- I just made that shortcut! /sigh

Using the workaround linked above got me to server select but after that it seems to be stuck again.
