Horrible lag running windows 10

    Recently built a new PC with windows 10 and EQ runs horrible everytime i log in unless i delete the EQclient.ini each time before hand. Anyone have a fix for this please???? Its super annoying having to set up my keybinds and color fonts and loot settings each time i go to play.

    Try making the eqclient.ini read only. Also check with admin rights.
  3. Kixel Journeyman

    i will give this a try, thanks for replying.

    Running EQ in admin made it so i had no mouse pointer and even making EQclient.ini read only still gives me unplayable lag issues

    Try excluding EQ and its folder from your virus scanner. (Windows Defender -> Virus & threat protection -> Virus & threat protection settings -> Exclusions)
  6. Kixel Journeyman

    ok so i added the Everquest folder itself. which EQ file, EQgame.exe?
  7. Kixel Journeyman

    i did what you suggested, adding the whole folder and Eqgame.exe and still very lagged unless i delete EQclient.ini before i log in.
  8. niente Developer

    Can you paste the contents of your eqclient.ini here?
  9. Kixel Journeyman

    yeah give me a sec as i just re-deleted it and will have to change my settings.

    what i dont understand is why only 3/5 of my windows 10 computers are doing it. i have tried comparing settings between the lagged and non lagged and i cant seem to find anything different.
  12. Fanra https://everquest.fanra.info

    I have no idea if it will help at all, but I recommend:

    CPUAffinity0=-1

    (that's a negative one instead of your zero)

    Also:

    MaxBGFPS=9 is your Maximum BackGround Frames Per Second. The MaxBGFPS=9 means that if you move the mouse out of the window (why I included WindowedMode=TRUE in my quote), then your frames per second become 9. I notice with my dual monitor setup if I move the mouse to the monitor that EQ is not on, that my EQ slows to a crawl because my MaxBGFPS is low. This should only happen if the window focus (usually where the mouse is) is not in EQ.

    While your explanation seems to say that there is some kind of bug somewhere, I always recommend my Graphics and performance settings guide (link) to people. Also https://almarsguides.com/eq/gettingstarted/boxing/PopularEQIssues/ReduceYourLag/

    Please update this setting in your eqclient.ini:
    Old: VertexShaders=0
    New: VertexShaders=1

    it appeared that -1 setting made it better, im not glitching when i move around now

    i just changed the setting for the vertexshaders, trying it now

    I would question all those settings. I can 12 box effectively on a 6 year old home built cheapo AMD system and use...

    Code:
    CPUAffinity0=-1
     
    CPUAffinity1=-1
     
    CPUAffinity2=-1
     
    CPUAffinity3=-1
     
    CPUAffinity4=-1
     
    CPUAffinity5=-1
     
    CPUAffinity6=-1
     
    CPUAffinity7=-1
