    I get a black screen with the eq frame around it after I press the green play button on the server select screen. This problem has persisted for 6 hours as of now. Returning, multi account player and I’m very discouraged.

    Are you on test, TLP or live?
    Windows? Laptop?
    Restarted computer?
    Ran file verification on all copies?

    Ok I found a post that covers this and I would go for the Direct X 9c link in xxgriffs post first. Keep in mind that windows 10 does have a higher direct x but it does not cover the 9c which Everquest sometimes needs.

    Then I would go for the info in the last post about starting the game in windows mode causing this

    Also you want to check the compatability - ie run as administrator or use windows 7

    Edit - I see your making a couple posts about this - try to stick to one so its not all over the place with responses :)
