    How to install EverQuest Beta

    How to install EverQuest Beta

    Copy your character over to the Beta server:
    • Log in to your character on your live server and then type the /beta command.
    • Characters flagged for beta will be copied periodically (typically every morning).
    • If you already have your toon on beta and you use the /beta command on the Live server a second time (or more), it will copy your character again, but it will only sync the AA/Achievements. If you want to have a clean copy, you would need to delete your beta character first before running the /beta command again.

    To patch and get into the Beta servers:

    After Beta has been patched, do not login just yet, continue on...

    Use your character live server files for Beta:

    Once you have EverQuest Beta installed correctly and patched, copy over some files from the EverQuest (live) folder to your newly created EverQuest Beta folder so you don’t lose all of your custom settings.

    EverQuest folder location:
    • eqclient.ini
    • UI_Yourname_server.ini
    • Yourname_server.ini

      EverQuest\userdata folder location:
    • AT_default_Yourname_server.ini

    Copy To and Rename:

    EverQuest Beta folder location:
    • eqclient.ini
    • UI_Yourname_beta.ini
    • Yourname_beta.ini

      EverQuest Beta\userdata folder location:
    • AT_default_Yourname_beta.ini

    GINA Update:
    If you use GINA, you will need to make another User profile and point it to the Beta folder location for GINA to work, using the eqlog_Yourname_beta.txt file in the EverQuest Beta\Logs folder.

    Run the EverQuest Beta launcher and login.
    You should now have all of your settings from Live on Beta now.
    If you don’t, then you missed something.

    Other Important Information:
    • Beta installs into a separate folder that takes about the same space as your live game version.
    • The Beta server may not be accessible at all times, as patching occurs when it is necessary.
    • The Beta server is wiped periodically, meaning beta characters may be deleted with or without notice.

    audio triggers may or may not be needed to be moved depending on whether you use audio triggers for things other than raid mechanics since we will be in all-new content on the beta raid. Still better to just copy everything listed here. Nice write-up Drakah. Big thumbs up!


      A couple prior download links were broken

        Type "/beta" from your main character on Xegony to flag that character for copying to beta. It may take a day or so to do the copy.
