It appears that DirectX9 will be a requirement for EQ, perhaps for the new graphics engine in EQ.

I suggest that if you have XP, you take a system snapshot before you install it so you can roll back in case you have problems. Look up "System Restore" in your online help to see how to do that.

In order to continue to move EverQuest forward and embrace rapidly changing graphics technology, we are going to require the use of DirectX 9 on the Test server. DirectX 9 will better use EverQuest's graphic resources, while providing better security and performance for your computers. You can download DirectX 9 at

Thanks for all of your continued help in testing EverQuest.
