    Finally got one win 10 machine but made a mess of the old files on the xp machine. repatched up thru last patch. Any assistance on today's patch... thanks

    I said in April, I would only do this until October, or expansion time, since I did for November as well, I consider I did a fair go.

    I can build a zip file easily enough if I know how/where to get the patch files themselves and the game edit file, and since I run XP I have a vested interest in doing it continuously.

    There is a file .downloadinfo.txt
    Note it starts with "."

    It lists all the files that were updated/replaced/deleted.

    I tried and just made a total mess on the older machine with xp... when I select a server, get disconnected.
    So irritating. I surely see what a job it is.

    Do a search of the Everquest folder for "downloadinfo.txt"... I'd say more but my method has not worked.

    Is it not time to let XP go? It's totally unsafe on the web (there is a legacy closed-network scenario where it's okay I guess. Bank ATMs still use it for example), much as I loved it in 2004, it may be time to shake it off and move up?

    Teach a man to fish with a rod n' line rather than using his hands...

    Linux users also use these patches /shrug

    The last entry in that file for me is Oct. 19, which I assume was the last patch included in bigfan's large update. I seem to recall him including the additional edits with the new zip.

    I could figure it out manually if I had a Win 7+ box to run the update on. Unfortunately, I don't have one at the moment.

    Spankyyy I love you! after working literally 10 hours yesterday, and looking at my (downloadinfo-notepad)... I seriously had 23 pages of files when I copied it to word. Used your list and BANG I am in. Please please tell me how you found/made that list. many many many many thanks!
  13. spankyyy New Member

    thursday mini patch - I went to my File explorer which is accessable from the bottom left windows button you also use to turn the computer off then program files - everquest. while in everquest i typed in the search box downloadinfo.txt then i just copied the most recent file check after the patch on my windows 10 machine scoll down to the bottom then go up until you see the most recent file updates. I have 1 xp machines and the win 10 machine, so i leave this downloadinfo box open then highlight each file updated- copy - paste in search box with everquest always open - find it copy it and then go to the network and click on my other computers eq file or resources- etc and paste it. takes a few mins but it works fine and no need to ask for assistance.

    These guys who post the remedy patches here are far better at computery stuff than i am and much appreciated for the work they have done for all of us old comp users. Thanks much!

    so .. yeah they patched the patch

    So...anybody got the files from the patch of the patch? Not having them appears to disconnect me every time I try to get to the character screen. I would've thought that text files wouldn't affect the installation, but it seems they do.

    Any of you still using an old OS, you can clean install (i installed Windows 10 Enterprise) Windows 10 WITHOUT a CD Key. The only negatives I have is a watermark on lower right of my screen and being unable to customize my desktop(unbelievably there no having Windows, for this MS should be commended), but I can run eq without needing a patch

    Its unknown how long Microsoft will allow this to happen of if at some point my OS will stop working, I found out about this from reputable websites and none of them say there's any other limatations

    Bump for when patch goes through. There has got to be some other angel out there.
  20. Valv New Member

    Bump, anyone that could do this would be much appreciated.
