I just wanted to say that I used to play on PEQ_TGC and found MQ2 to be super intimidating. Your explanation style was honestly the thing that demystified MQ2 for me. I'm sure there's so much that I don't know what I don't know but now I'm at least looking forward to giving it a try!

Brand new MQ2 download, updated 4/15 in launcher; I'm trying to log in my accounts into Live using the guidelines in the video and it' looks like it's all set but I'm getting an error: "Either MQ2 or eqgame is out of date MQ2 expected eqgame Date and Time to be: Apr 13 2020 16:06:55 But eqgame's Date and Time is: Nov 13 2018 10:48:20 Do you need to patch one of them? Loading of MQ2 can not be completed." When I go to try to Run eqgame it prompts me to use Launchpad. I can log in using the Launchpad and run the game that way without issue.
It seems like it should be an easy fix but how do I update eqgame?

Servers are down. You're probably just fine on you're end, just gotta wait for DGC to fix their shit. In general, that error means either everquest or mq2 needs to be updated. Every patch day, like the one yesterday, will have a period of a few hours where mq2 is unusable due to the mismatch.

Thanks for the reply! As of just now I've re-patched EQ via Launchpad and according to the Redguides Launcher I've got the latest version of MQ2, but I'm still getting the same error. The only thing I can think of that may be causing an issue is: instead of running a complete download from the web the last time I installed EQ I had just saved my whole Daybreak folder to a hard drive and put it on the new comp to preserve my UI files. Could that be causing an issue and if so, is there any way to just patch eqgame.exe somehow without a full EQ reload?

The error message hasn't cleared yet after again re-patching this way. Just brainstorming - if I were to go into my EQ folder, delete eqgame.exe, and re-patch via the Launchpad would that restore the application with the newest eqgame.exe? ...or is that a terrible idea? Should probably back up my Daybreak folder again before attempting.

Please don't quote me on this but I have always had trouble with moving stuff from one computer to another... I found in the long run its better to just install EQ fresh on the new drive and once it is installed then move or copy only the needed files and not over writing the install. (copy the UI folder only and move it to the install UI folder. This might clear up the error. Sounds like its looking for something that was set on the old drive/computer. Did you also move all the registry keys along with the files you copy to the new drive. That could be where the problem might be.

Been using MQ2 and KissAssist for a month now and I absolutely love it. I use to alt/tab box 3, any more than that would get a little confusing. Now I have a party of 6 and it's almost "fire and forget". Took a little bit of time fooling around with the Kiss INI files to get stuff to work the way I wanted. The INI library helped. I just look at them and tweak my INIs to my play style. Would love to see a MuleAss style UI window for Kiss. I find the manual edit of the INIs and getting spells/abilities spelled correctly the worst part, but once you get everything in place, the magic happens. Thanks RedGuides

I came back to the game after a 9 year (Jul 5th) break, and went from manual 6 boxing to MMObug's MQ2, then was referred here by TheIcon for a more in depth, personalized MAC and Plugin's. Havent got to play with them yet, but snooping around looks to be great!

I hope so, I have been manually playing 3 characters at the moment, but from the videos ive seen from MQ it looks incredible and will massively enhance my way of playing! Just need to wrap my head around the setup :D

I'm fairly new to this as well and one of those "why the hell didn't I do this earlier" guys. It's totally re-kindled my interest in EQ. Redbots intro videos make it easy to get started. I think it's WAY easier to setup than ISBoxer. Getting the fine details configured can take a little patience, but ask the community here on things you are not sure of. We aren't elitist and welcome new users and their questions.

I play in first person AND I CLICK SPELLS
I also Play in First Person (since 2001) although i do press 1 through = for spells everything else is click. Hard to change since i was click playing in the 80s on Atari computers playing Utima I - VIII and all the D&D games that came out. (Edit) i have no friends so i play the way i like :)

Now that brings back memories. Ultima 1 - 8. I still have them on a disk somewhere....

Ultima was amazing. I loved might and magic as well especially 8 (day of the destroyer) that game was all about first person views and spell gem clicking, and I was addicted to Arcomage. I play eq first person also, I feel more immersed that way.
