This is a resource page for Project 1999 Everquest.

This is an officially sanctioned server running EQ as it was at the Velious expansion in 1999

How do I install?

Project 1999 EQ is easy to install IF you follow instructions carefully.

Get the game files from a torrent site. Note there has been a patch recently (2/2019) see P99 Wiki.

You also need the patch/exe file to run the game.

  1. Download and extract the game file folder.
  2. Download and extract the patch/exe. Right click the exe, go into properties and point the patch/exe to where you placed the game folder. It’s currently set to look on /c for the folder.
  3. While you’re in properties, set the game compatibility to Windows XP, Service Pack 2 (relieves some crashing)
  4. You must use this patch/exe to launch. Do NOT run the exe in the game folder.

Warning: You are not supposed to 2-box on this server. They can monitor this. If two people in your house (one IP) are playing your supposed to ask them for special permission.

If you’re 2-boxing, you’d better be on separate computers, and a VPN is essential. If they see two chars on the same machine and same IP you may get banned, especially if another player reports you because you look like you’re 2-boxing.

Some random resources, I’ll clean these up soon:

You can knock out most of them just by using Duxa’s installer: https://www.project1999.com/forums/s…ad.php?t=28335

Here’s a post I made that lists a bunch of ways you can make the Titanium client more classic: https://www.project1999.com/forums/s…71#post2482371 (use the hi-resolution zone textures for higher quality)

Here’s a post I made that links to all of Zaela’s fixes combined into one easy-to-install file: https://www.project1999.com/forums/s…p?p=2491223#21

Here’s a post I made for better classic elemental textures (new link at end of thread): https://www.project1999.com/forums/s…d.php?t=256151

Here’s a post I made that links to an updated version of Ropethunder & Nilbog’s transparency patcher utility (changes described in detail here and here): https://www.project1999.com/forums/s…p?p=2491217#88

Here’s a post I made that links to an easy-to-install zip that will force the Titanium client to use new water in old zones: https://www.project1999.com/forums/s…p?p=2491211#23

Here’s a post I made that links to easy-to-install zips to randomize your loading splash screen between either the original Trilogy loading screens or all 19 EverQuest loading screens: https://www.project1999.com/forums/s…p?p=2491227#12

Here’s a post I made that links to a bunch of different easy-to-install sound packages, the “bettereqsounds” package being the most important because it fixes that thread’s original package which had a bunch of files rendered in stereo which the client couldn’t play back: https://www.project1999.com/forums/s…p?p=2488457#30

 

Turning on the zone caches seems to help. I’m not sure if its defaulted to on or not.

Inside the eqclient.ini under the [Defaults] section look for value.

TextureCache=TRUE
