huh. this is also always nice to know.

who knew i moved to sin city?

*still trying to install EQ*

*growls at computer*

...time goes by as she tippity types away to customer service...

*screams!*

CSR Sean M: The problem here is your video card. That card is not supported for use and will give you error problems when you try to play the game.

and AGAIN, fuckity fuck fuck fuck.

EverQuest had BEST be freaking worth it by the time i get my freaking ass on there, is all i can say! This is turning out to be ENTIRELY too much freaking effort. I'm torn between marching down (cuz, you know, i can't DRIVE *stoopid fcking jeep*) to the nearest video card seller person and paying, as CSR Sean M. told me, anywhere from $50 on up for a fcking video card, or just calling my $25 (plus shipping and handling) at a lost and torching the living fuck out of this stupid freaking game installation thing.

and, again, fuck.

anything else wanna happen today to test my mood?!?!?

that's exactly what it is, is my stupid video card, so until i can afford to shell out another half a hundred bucks (or more), i'm stuck with this stupid freaking lump of COAL taking up space on my desk and giving me tiny anurisms.

Re:
AARRRRRRRRRRGH I had the EXACT same issue and I had to go through a few video cards until I got one that it was ok with. I think the one I got was a Vodoo or something..

Re:
so. instead of getting a good deal on the game at $25 for the trilogy, i'm going to be, essentially, shelling out at LEAST $75 for it.

pfeh.

Re:

Re:
I don't need it.. its just sitting here. I took it out of a computer I fixed a couple days ago. Its an AGP card, and the new mb I bought doesn't support AGP

Find out if it supports it, and its yours.. just gotta tell me where to send it

alright, first of all i need to know exactly what video card you have...
also if you havent, you should go update your directx8 drivers... you can find them on the microsoft site.
also, run a dxdiag in the start menu and make sure "3d acceloration" is enabled under the "display" tab.

second of all, you might want to invest sometime enough for a long distance call to our own personal tech support person (my roomate).... it might be worth your money, in that you might not have to upgrade your video card.

customer support people might not always be patient with you enough to take you through all of the trouble shooting measures that you should go through.
:)
lots of <3

Re:
i have an Intel 810e Chipset Graphics Driver, version 4.11.01.1272. the first cs person i contacted told me to upgrade my directx8 driver to 8.1, because all i had was 7.0 (which is what came with the game..) so it took FOREVER to download the 8.1, just to have it not work again.

*sigh*

and the 3d accelloration is enabled.

Re:
8.1 is necessary for the game, its hard to explain.
if you only have on board video you really might want to upgrade to a separte graphics card.

how old is your computer?
and exactly what sort of error messages are you getting? anyway to copy and paste for me to see?

Re:
my computer was created back in 98... it's a classic. bleh.

the first error message i get is "the EVERQUEST.EXE file is linked to missing export D3D8.DLL:Direct3DCreate8.

the one immediately afterwards is saying that a device attached to the everquest.exe is not working.
