Everquest (Classic) No Player Model Fix.

So i use to play Everquest when i was a teenager…and i mean…alot. I love the game to death, and when i found out that it went Free 2 Play, i just had to get it running on Linux. Although there is a model error where your character will show up in the menu without a face, arms, legs, and all you will see is your armor and sword. This is what i am here to help you fix.

Of course you need the latest version of wine installed, and a few things from winetricks such as d3dx9, and steam. you can install vcrun2005 as well. It wouldn’t hurt.

the if you haven’t ever messed around with winetricks before the command is simple

winetricks d3dx9 vcrun2005 steam

Also if you just run winetricks by itself, a fancy little gui will pop, and allow you to configure and install certain programs, and windows needed files.

So of course you need to run steam in order to install EQ F2P. So while in the directory of steam in “.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Steam”

you must run the command “wine steam.exe” (Note if your steam windows have no text or no text on the butttons, you need to run steam like this “wine steam.exe -no-dwrite“)

(This next step requires you to start the game without the fix. This will generate the eqclient.ini that you need to edit. Once the game loads up into the menu, you can close the game and continue to the fix.)

Once EQ is installed, here is where the no player model fix comes in. inside your EQ directory within the “/Steam/steamapps/common/Everquest F2P/” Look for a file called eqclient.ini

Look for the line that says “VertexShaders=true“, and rename true to “false“. Then save the file.

That’s it!..enjoy!

If you have any further errors, let me know.

    Ok so if winetricks steam gives you this error.

    Saving to: `SteamInstall.msi’

    sha1sum mismatch! Rename /home/chuck/.cache/winetricks/steam/SteamInstall.msi and try again.

    Then go into the directory of SteamInstall.msi and rename it to something like steaminstall.msi

    with “mv SteamInstall.msi steaminstall.msi”

    then run it like so.

    “wine msiexec /i steaminstall.msi”

    That should fix it!

    You need to mention that you need to log the character on after install to generate the eqclient.ini or else it wont be there at all.

    Need to also mention how to navigate to the Steam folder, its hidden, and second still hard to find even when u do know that. not everyone who reads this is mastered in linux.

  4. Ghost says:

    Steam locates eqclient ini in .local folder. Its a hidden folder, so you to home folder, which is under computer in your drives entry, hit Ctrl H select .local folder>share>wineprefixes>steam>drive c: >program files (x86)>steam>SteamApps>common>everquest F2P>search for the eqclient.ini, again noting that you must at least login to EQ and patch or log into the game to generate the ini. Once thats done, you can apply your ini patch. Make sure drivers are up to date, and use proprietary drivers if possible.
