Greetings all! I am new to the Mac version of EQ, but I played PCEQ about three years ago on the Druzzil and Drinal servers. I've recently envied my boyfriend's son who plays WoW, and decided to get back into gaming. I thought WoW might be promising, and then I found that it really sucks. I mean, blatantly obvious quests that require no thought, knowledge, or insight? C'mon now! After much debate, I decided to try EQ on Mac. (The debate was in regards to the time I might spend on here. I know it might be a little hard to comprehend, but I used to spend A LOT of time on EQ
) And I started the class I love the most- the bard.
So here I am. And I'm having problems. I'm currently using the trial version and it keeps crashing. It crashes during play- and I lose all of my settings: video mode, hotkeys, movement/camera/etc settings. It also crashes after about two times of logging in okay. I log in once and log in later, and usually on that third time, I cannot get into the game past the "Play" button. It gets to "Play", and I am able to push the button, but then I get the message that the game has stopped unexpectedly. I can post a report on that crash (it's one of those really long messages that I can't interpret).
I've tried reinstalling the game several times. I spoke ingame to Samatsyn, who told me to try deleting the character.ini file, but I cannot find it.
If I can solve these problems, I think I might like it on this server. I was rather iffy at the fact that the population is so small, there is no customer service, and there aren't as many expansions. But already, I'm beginning to like it. Thus far, I've met Tigertugger and Cromis, who were very nice to me, and I've spoken with a few others who seem cool, too. I kind of like the idea of such a small server now, and it's kind of neat that in a couple more years, as many move on to "bigger" and "better" (ha!) games, we'll be retro and ol-skool
