FAQ Section - A Work in progress!

Feel free to ask any question about EQEmu here, or PM myself with your questions. The more questions the more our FAQ can grow !

Q: Hey, whats this eqemu file they have on their site - you didnt say anything about downloading that !

A: The CaveDude file that you download is a precompiled bunch of files with some other stuff thrown in to assist you in getting a server up and running. the EqEmu files you see on their website are included with that.

Q: Can I use any other SQL program to run my database for EQEmu ?

A: No! At this point, unfortunatley only mySQL is supported by the EQEmu software.

Q: I dont have a copy of EQ Titanium, is there any way at all for me to play ?

A: Not unless you find a copy of Titanium unfortunatley. If you live in the US, you can pick it up for about $19 in most stores.

Q: Where are the "Uber" items with +100 regen and +2,000HP on them ?

A: Customizing your servers item database is done easily, an the best way to doso is with an Item Editor. You can download an editor which I believe will work with the 0.7.0 release here: http://66.159.225.58/eqemu/eqitems.zip (right click, save as)

Not real familiar with Emulators. Why would someone play on this vs a regular live server? What are the Pros and cons?

Its the same game, but with different dev's. Everything is alot different, things like having a npc that can teleport you anywhere you tell it, having npcs that buff you when you ask. Different raiding experiences, but the main reason most play is cause they dont like some of the things sony did to change the game, and its FREE!
