EQ2Emulator Project

Based on https://www.eq2emulator.net/ visit https://www.eqpvp.com/ or https://www.zeklabs.com/ for more details

Getting Started (Client)

  1. Install Game: Install AoM client available on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/201230/EverQuest_II/

  2. Update Login Server: Navigate to EverQuest install directory, eg. C:\Steam\steamapps\common\EverQuest 2 a. Open eq2_default.ini with your Notepad or other flavor editor b. Replace first line with 'cl_ls_address a.b.c.d' - where a.b.c.d is one or many IPv4 addresses eg. cl_ls_address 192.168.0.2 c. Save Changes d. Always Open EverQuest2.exe to start the game, DO NOT USE EQ2.EXE e. Splash login account / name is one provided by Login Server or otherwise created in 'Getting Started (Server)' Step 4 below.

Getting Started (Server)

Note: These instructions for now will be primarily based in Windows, but any Linux savvy individual should be able to translate the steps

  1. Software Requirement: MariaDB (MySQL DB, etc.) to allow EQ2Emulator LoginServer / WorldServer to interface Obtain Latest Install (be sure to select OS on the right hand side as default will be a linux distro): https://mariadb.com/downloads/ Installation Instructions for MariaDB can be found here: https://mariadb.com/kb/en/installing-mariadb-msi-packages-on-windows/ Note: Be sure to remember the user and password defined in the installation!! Used in later steps.

  2. Open MySQL Client: Login using the password (assigned to root or other default user) setup in the MariaDB installation.

  3. Source in Databases: Issue the following commands to setup EQ2Emulator's databases for login (eq2ls) and world (eq2emu). a. You must first go into source C:[YOUREQ2EMUGITSRC]\DB\ and extract world_db.zip 'Here' into the same \DB\ directory. b. Run the following commands in the MySQL Client prompt: create database eq2ls; create database eq2emu; \u eq2ls source C:[YOUREQ2EMUGITSRC]\DB\ls_db.sql \u eq2emu source C:[YOUREQ2EMUGITSRC]\DB\world_db.sql

  4. Add Game Account / World Account: Using the same MySQL Client, continue on creating your accounts

Game Login Account: insert into account set name='test',passwd=md5('test');

World Login Account (LoginServer.ini): insert into login_worldservers set name='TestLabs',account='testlabs',description='TestLabs',password=md5('testpass'),login_version='0.7.3-dev';

  1. Open the C:[YOUREQ2EMUGITSRC]\server\LoginServer.ini file (Notepad or other flavor editor)

Note: Steps to find your LAN IP (command prompt, ipconfig, IPv4 address): https://www.lifewire.com/ip-config-818377

     Find your WAN (Internet) IP: https://www.google.com/search?q=what+is+my+ip

a. Modify the [LoginServer] section:

  loginserver - LAN/WAN IP of your login server to use the login_worldservers account against
  worldname - World Name that matches the 'name' column defined in login_worldservers (eg. TestLabs)
  worldaddress - LAN/WAN IP of your world server
  internalworldaddress - LAN IP of your world server
  account - Column 'account' defined in login_worldservers (eg. testlabs)
  password - Column 'password' in login_worldservers (eg. testpass)

b. Save Changes

  1. Open the C:[YOUREQ2EMUGITSRC]\server\login_db.ini file (Notepad or other flavor editor) a. Modify the [Database] section: host - Should remain localhost unless you have your MariaDB server reside on another host IP user - When installing MariaDB the user defined (default is 'root') should be set here password - When installing MariaDB use the password defined along with the default user. database - This field should remain eq2ls unless changed by the user to use a custom database name.

  2. Open the C:[YOUREQ2EMUGITSRC]\server\world_db.ini file (Notepad or other flavor editor) a. Modify the [Database] section: host - Should remain localhost or 127.0.0.1 unless you have your MariaDB server reside on another host IP user - When installing MariaDB the user defined (default is 'root') should be set here password - When installing MariaDB use the password defined along with the default user. database - This field should remain eq2emu unless changed by the user to use a custom database name.
