View Full Version : hey from Namao

Hey all, so I've decided to give EQ a try again. I've downloaded everything that I can think of but everytime I log on I keep getting a system error and it freezes on me. Any thoughts as to why that is happening? :) Please and thank you.

I got that after this latest patch when the servers first came up. I had to run the Game Options button (on screen after you enter your login) to get it to run. Also you need to go to the website and change your password before you can log in again because of the recent issues.

Hey Leth, I've done everything that you said and it still gives me the eqgame.exe error. Not sure what to do next. Any suggestions?

05-16-2011, 09:09 PM
are you running it as administrator?? i think Vista or windows 7 you need to run as administrator

05-16-2011, 10:27 PM
Don't have vista or window 7 on this computer. Its windows XP.

05-16-2011, 11:26 PM
Hmmm.... Do a complete scan!?!? Ummmm /bonk Fastfistz! maybe try /bite Tiggerzz!

05-16-2011, 11:33 PM
Did the complete scan ... a few times now.

ok windows 7, just gonna ask a couple of dumb questions to get my mind working, Namo do ya have direct x 9.0c?
im guessing you do but just in case... next what directory did it go into?
lets see have you gone into msconfig and deselected everything, then applied? it helps, just type msconfig into the run bar goto last tab deselect every check box then restart pc. after ya answer those questions if you still have problems lemme know, btw what launcher are you using there is 3 that work, the one from luclin works to launch but doesnt patch. the newest one i found is better and the one in between is the one i have found is quirky.

First NOT windows 7, Windows XP. Yes to the direct x9 and whenever I try to log on I get an error because of direct x9 ... according to what it says. I've tried redownloading eq and it still occurs. Did all that you suggested and it still occurs as well. Hense why I redownloaded EQ.

Is the error just eqgames.exe has experienced and error and must shut down? Or does it give a specific error message?

05-19-2011, 10:27 PM
eqgames.exe and must shut down

05-21-2011, 10:06 PM
ok make sure its directx 9.0c i think it is i know it is definitely a "c" on the end though. lemme look about and see if kin determine the eqgame errors for win xp. what type of vid card are ya running nam, it might make a difference.

05-21-2011, 10:57 PM
I am not sure what kind of video card it is but I play WoW on it just fine.

05-22-2011, 04:22 AM
Its actually more specific than just 9c, Its the April 2006 DirectX 9.0c redistributable version.

Its all good. Hubby got it to finally work :D I might be on later today after work. :D

05-22-2011, 01:52 PM
For curiosities sake, what was it?

05-22-2011, 06:09 PM
from what i understood it was a rsolution conflict with eq and her current setup or driver.

05-22-2011, 09:10 PM
What Satrn said :D

05-25-2011, 04:16 PM
