You'll need to find were Everquest is installed on your particular machine. Typically it will be in a folder with a path similar to
but there can be variance depending on what EQ release you used to install EQ. If you didn't use the installer, well then, you're on your own for finding. Go to wherever you put it.
The above link will download a zip file. Windows XP has zip support built in. Previous versions of windows will need to use a third part zip application.
In the zip, you will find a folder, and a single file.
The folder needs to be copied to:
(There will be two folders there already, one named "default", the other named "shared". Possibly others if you have already created a custom audio trigger set.)
The file needs to be copied to:
AND must be renamed. Change "CharacterName" in
to, well, your actual character name.
For example, if your character is named Icecream, you will need to rename that file to be named:
If you installed while windowing out of EverQuest, EQ must be restarted for the changes to appear! Zoning / reloading the skin will not do the trick.
Well, OK, maybe not.
Go here and click the [INSTALL] button. Let it install. After a few seconds to a few minutes (depending on what you already have installed), a nice new Audio Trigger Patcher will appear on your Start menu. Run it. It will download all updated triggers, put them in the right place, and modify whatever files need to be, uhm, modified. Thank you to Cicak for testing it for me (again).
Regardless of the installation selected, you'll need to select them in game.
To open the audio triggers window in game, click the EQ Button, select Actions, and select Audio Triggers.
You can also assign a hotkey to this window via the EQ Options screen. (It has no default key assigned by the EQ developers.)
If, however, you use the automated installer, it will assign alt-s to this window for your convenience and inner joy.
Once you get the audio triggers installed, you'll need to select them in EQ's Audio Triggers window.
Open the Audio Triggers window. Under Trigger Set in the top right hand corner, select cnraid from the dropdown list. Once selected, the trigger patterns and sounds will appear in the main window panel.
