There is obviously something wrong with your setup if you cant get it to play properly on your system. No offense. But if you cant get the game playable in blackburrow. Then well. You obviously havent tweaked the game. Even my Athlon XP can achieve twice those framerates at a custom medium/high detail @ 1280x960 with 4xAA/8xAF. Maybe I should send you my eq_recent.ini since tweaking the game seems to be a problem for you. ((yes I can be sarcastic too!))
That or you just have too high expectations for your computer to for EQ 2.
Personally. I know dozens of others who have gotten this game playable on their rigs without having to bite their fingers off in the process. You seem awfully defensive. And seem to have some kind of personal grudge towards EQ 2.
