    Fix it. Disable new memberships until you fix it.

    Been away for 7 years came back and find that a server down takes days?Thats really totally messed up, how do you expect to get people to shell out money to pay if you cannot give them a server they choose to play on?

    I'm sitting here with 3 computers playing three accounts. Today I decided to reactivate an old account. Got out another cable and hooked an old computer to the broadband (computer still had EQ on it). I have 3 computers, all connected by cable to the same router. The new setup is giving me the same Unable to download SocketError error that others here have reported, yet three other computers are playing it fine. I am unable to download a fresh copy of the game as the "Download the Game" link does absolutely nothing when I click on it, and if I try to open the link in a new tab or window it gives a Not Found 404 error. The Download issue is present on all 5 computers in my home. Any idea what I can do to fix this or do I need to wait for a miracle Daybreak cure?

    Type this into your Windows Explorer with your EQ file path (WIN +E)

    C:\Games\Everquest\eqgame.exe patchme

    I tried that on Wednesday. Didn't work. I can either get into the client with this method, but the game won't connect because it's not correctly updated, or in launcher it doesn't connect.

    Yep if you behind a patch it does not work.

    -No info on any solution other than waiting for other people to fix it
    -No info on why they allow new users to purchase memberships that are completely worthless

    Crazy, huh? And no update other than there is no update.

    Why does EQ1 not get the same level of feedback as EQ2?????

    It may be time for them to change CDN providers. I did find a post giving the name of the purported CDN provider. I won't post it here because I can't verify the info. But, if the post is correct then I am curious because they show no outages on their support website. In any case, this outage is yet another black eye.

    If your EQ is patched up then you can get on. If its not patched up then you can't because you can't download the patch. Can't bypass the patcher if your EQ is out of date either.

    Simple as this. And no new installs can be used right now as they also need the patch even if your going thru Steam.

    Agreed. If their CDN hasn't fixed the issue after THREE DAYS, they need to find a more reliable one.
  20. Nennius Curmudgeon

    TBH, I don't know the nature of the issue and I don't know what's being done. Is three days a long time to solve an issue like this? My experience with a CDN is very limited. But, it is yet another example of poor communication from Daybreak. It joins a very long history of such things.

    I might suggest that many/most of your players are pretty rational and reasonable and further that if you were able to share more of the difficulties with this issue, and other issues, you might win us over more completely. Involve us! Speaking only for myself, I don't expect perfection. But, pass along enough information to convince us that the issue is serious and that serious efforts are being take yo rectify it. It is a game after all. A leisure time activity. It is an addiction, err highly attractive and involving thing that I have enjoyed for more than 20 years. Sigh, I am getting old.

    It would be bad form to give players a reason to not be involved. It is a rather competitive market. You need more customers.
