New Player - Guide from Getting Started from Right out of the Box
This guide will tell you what to do, to get started playing on Titanium Edition.
Step 1 - Buying the Game
To out to your local game store, computer store, what ever, and buy a Titanium copy of the game(Not Platinum or any other expansion). The game retails at around $20 in the US, considering how many expansions it comes with... which probably doesn't matter to you yet, considering you are new, and if you are reading this, you likely never played EQ Live or EQEmu.
Step 2 - Installing the Game
If you can't do this, you should honestly not even be trying.
Put disk 1 in your DVD/CD ROM drive. Setup will appear on screen. Follow the directions given to you by the setup application.
DO NOT RUN THE GAME AFTER YOU INSTALL IT UNTIL STEP 6
Step 3 - Changing the EQHost file
Click 'Start', go to 'Run', type in, 'C:\Program Files\Sony\Everquest\eqhost.txt'
Modify the file to look like
Save and close.
Step 4 - Creating the Shortcut
I'm assuming you know how to make a shortcut on the desktop.
Make a new shortcut, I recommend you do it on the desktop, but where ever you want is fine.
should be '"C:\Program Files\Sony\EverQuest
That is it for getting on, now you need a login server account.
Step 5 - Creating your Login Server Account
Go to The Forums∞
Next, go to the USER CP - Login Server Accounts (Or Click Here)∞
Make a new login server account on that page.
You should be all set.
Step 6 - Playing
Run the game through the shortcut you created previously.
Select the server that you wish to play on.
Note: I have noticed that not all 7.0 servers are properly configured to allow connections. Just look around, and check the forums for news about new servers, some are very promising.
