Guys

Is that happening to anyone else or just me?  I read on the internet this did happen after previous patches but maybe this time round it is just me now.  Does anyone know of a fix ?

Cheers

Was no problem login yday and plenty others were online.
I suggest u try to bypass the patcher - there should be a post around here how to do that.
maybe try to restart your router too.

Could be antivirus or maybe stale DNS -
try to open command window and type:
ipconfig /flushdns

see if that help
if not try to disable your antivirus
also u might want to search in the txt files in EQ directory for some log files that might have more info about what exactly is happening.
As last resort there is still the DB technical support forum (didn't look there for ages) that might be able to help

Maybe EQ uses a port, that your router/firewall has blocked?

Guys

Got onto Support and they sent me the stock reply (see below)

<from support page>
To delete these files you will need to navigate to your EverQuest directory.  The directory can be found by opening the EverQuest Launchpad, clicking on "Advanced Tools" in the bottom left of the Launchpad and selecting "Open Game Directory".

Next, Please delete the following files from that directory:

defaults.ini
eqclient.ini
eqgame.exe
EQGfx_Dx8.dll
EQGraphicsDX9.dll
eqlsClient.ini
eqmain.dll
 

Once those are deleted you can relaunch EverQuest.  If the issue still persists please navigate back to your EverQuest directory and delete the following files for your characters.

<CharacterName>_<ServerName>.ini (example: jack_bristlebane.ini)
UI_<CharacterName>_<ServerName>.ini (example: ui_jack_bristlebane.ini)
<end support page bump>



Ok My issue is this - if i remove those files AND the launchpad program does not work, how am i suppose to get the new versions of those files I backed up ?

Perhaps you could try a brand new install from the download game link on https://www.everquest.com/register

don't delete them - move them to some backup directory.
what seeker suggested is also an option
