Eq2 not updating
This is my guide to getting Everquest II to run in Linux (Ubuntu / Mint).A lot of people out there want to know how to get it working, and this is what worked for me. I will take some time to break it down in more detail for the those new users to the OS.Like players, guilds can gain experience and levels, partially from players completing special tasks called Heritage quests, but primarily from guild-oriented quests and tasks called "writs," and gaining guild experience by killing epic monsters.Higher guild levels open up special rewards unavailable to non-guilded characters, and cause certain other rewards to cost less.I enjoyed my time with Ever Quest, sure, but Warcraft 2? These are games, worlds and characters that I absolutely adored. It's been a decade since I made what most people would historically call the "right" choice by playing World of Warcraft.Ever Quest 2 has long since gone free-to-play, with Daybreak Game Company (formerly Sony Online Entertainment) pumping out 11 expansions in the same timeframe that a still-subscription-based World of Warcraft has released five.I feel your pain - you love your SK, your Ranger, your Assassin and you love Linux....and you spend hours and days trying to figure out how to marry the two - only to have people tell you "Games don't work in Linux just play Frozen Bubble and be happy." I know, I know you want to reach through the screen and choke the hell out of them, but just remember they are not gamers, they don't "get it." I do, so that is why I put this together - and I hope it helps at least one of you get your game on.
I had spent a couple years in high school noodling around in the original Ever Quest, a period that, despite my inability to make much progress in the game, helped me fall in love with the genre of massively multiplayer online role-playing games.First, I don't run Ubuntu, I run Linux Mint (which is based off Ubuntu/Debian). It took a while and a lot of pain and trial and error to figure it all out, but in the end it isn't as hard as you might think.Go to your "Systems Settings" and click "Additional Driver" under "Hardware" I think it's the same in Ubuntu as Mint.... You should see something like: Now make sure you have direct rendering working.Open the terminal if you closed it and type: About the third line down it should say "direct rendering = yes." Ok, now you see that your video card is properly installed with the right drivers - we can move on to the next set of steps.
