EverQuest Install and Setup


Staff member

1a. Download the copy of the Rain of Fire 2 Client. *below
Unzip the content of the downloaded zip/rar file to wherever you want your client to be.

1b. If you have a client from another source, Install the EverQuest client.
Important: Don't let the client run the patcher, so install it, but DO NOT RUN IT YET. If you do, you'll have to reinstall it again IF the patcher already ran.

2. In order for your client to connect to the Login Server (and not SOE's EQLive Login Server), you will need to change your eqhost.txt file to point at the correct location. Go into your EverQuest directory and locate the eqhost.txt file. Replace the contents of the file with the following (Remove any trailing spaces):


3. Edit your EverQuest client shortcut, to prevent the client from patching.
If you've installed EverQuest from discs or some kind of installation package, a shortcut called "EverQuest" is typically placed on your desktop. Delete that! We want to use a new shortcut that starts the game and skips the patcher.

If you downloaded the client from one of the link below, then a proper shortcut should already exist within the EverQuest folder called "eqgame.exe - Shortcut". If the shortcut is not there, then it takes only a few steps to create one.

To create a new shortcut that starts the game and skips the patcher, simply browse to your EverQuest folder. Find a file called eqgame.exe. Right click it, chose add shortcut. "eqgame.exe - Shortcut" will be created and should exist right next to "eqgame.exe". Right click the shortcut, select Properties and add " patchme" at the end of the "Target:" line so it reads like this:
"C:\Program Files\Everquest\eqgame.exe" patchme​

You can now place this file (the shortcut) on your Desktop, or wherever you wish, for ease of use.

4. Create your login forum account and your Login account go to:

Forum Register


Select "Create a LS Account."

5. At this point, you are ready to play. Once you login Scroll down till you see "Karana (x3 XP, Mercs, Speed)" Welcome and we are looking forward to seeing you there!
