Default Re: Everquest 2 ships on November 8th!

as soon as I get off work I'll head home and get specifics on my settings.

One thing to consider is that I'm running the game off a Western Digital "JB" harddrive (8MB buffer) and it's a physically different drive than my OS. Also, I jsut did a fresh OS install a few days ago and have almost nothing on it.

And one more thing- remember to tweak the sound system to save CPU power. If you have an Audigy1 I believe that their CPU utilization is absolutely ludicrous. Otherwise, switch it to EAX2 if avalable. I'm using a T-Beach Santa Cruz so I can get away with almost no CPU power being wasted on sound (and it sounds better than Miles fast 2d!!). Also, if you haven't already, turn off Cloth Simulation. It may not help everyone... I'm not sure if it uses the GPU's VS or the CPU but cloth takes major computing power.

And don't forget to turn down those animation quality sliders! best thing to do is be running using the keyboard whilst using the mouse to make changes. if it helps you'll know instantly.

Has this release caused massive attrition on EQ 1 servers?

they are in the same room... as the dwarf who gives you instructions. Just kinda hard to see if you're not looking for it.

Ya good Luck logging in right now, Someone at SOE tripped over the power chord I think. Actually they just reaaaaly under estimated server load. And they never had a stress test

Actually this is the best launch, its without a hitch. They estimated perfectly. Just people are being stupid and all going to the heavy load servers insted of joining the lesser populated servers.

Take Mistmoore as an example, On monday it was the first server to "fill up", even then MORE people are creating characters there insted of moving along... But theres no network lag anyway.

You can even tell they prepared well since the login servers have yet to fail, on the original EQ and SWG on launch the login server would crash once many people tried to logon, this has yet to happen with EQ2.

I give SOE credit, they proved all the haters wrong by having a nearly flawless launch...

Whats the best way to find information? Tells/ooc seem to rarely get an answer, and I feel that looking at eq2 sites will just dumb the quest down too much.

I'm working on citizenship in freeport and I have to find traitors, not told where.. just find them. :/

ALL citizenship final quests are in the single instance, the traitors are in the sewers where the darkelf is, you really have to be pretty clueless not to look around and see them standing there...
