Default Eqim

This isn't exactly a UI thing, but I thought I would pass along some information to you kind folks over here at EQInterface.

We got EQIM up to speed yesterday so that it shows all the servers now. You will see Venril Sathir, Kael Drakkal, Sebilis, Stromm, and Maelin Starpyre. This is still unsupported software, but I hope you enjoy the changes we've made. You don't need to change anything, just run EQIM and it will automagically download a new Serverinfo.xml file. If you had modified your Serverinfo.xml file manually and added /nopatch to the end of your shortcut, you will need to remove that to get the newest file.

Cheers!

This may be a mute point but I haven't used EQIM in along time because I am on Maelin and when i saw this I went to Everquest live to download it but unfortunatly I couldn't seem to find a link to it anywhere. Long story short, here is the link to the download for anyone who may need it:

Heya Zone, at this time, EQIM cannot connect to the guild chat because EQIM is connecting to the Channel Server, and not the World Server, so basically it recognises your character, but not guild affiliations. So if you want to talk to your guild, create a "Guild Channel" and have your entire guild join it. Passwording it would be a good idea as well.

If you an unfamiliar with how to do so, here is the format.

/join ChannelName:Password

e.g.

/join EQinterface:8675309


Thank you to Orion for the link, we'll be altering the web page shortly to make it easier to find/download.

I haven't used EQIM in a while. I didn't have any problems talking to people but I had a few anoyances. I had to add people to my buddy list just to talk to them otherwise it would sit there forever doing nothing.
I don't remember connecting to any channels....
I do specificly remember that it would not connect to my guilds serverwide officer's channel. (Some of our officers are active on other servers, this alows the users to go over to the officer channel and talk to an officer if there is any in EQ Land anywhere (the officers are required to auto-join all of their characters.)

I was not able to connect to the serverwide chat channels for like the clerics (/join serverwide.cleric:cleric). It would either give me an error or it would give me nothing....a blank line.

This was back when DX9 was made a requirement, for about 2 or 3 weeks I was working to try to get back into EQ (3 reinstalls of 98SE, several diffrent versions of my graphics driver, EQTech emails, emails to my card vendor.
EQTech basicly told me to bug-off. My ATI Radeon 7000 with 32MB of DDR-RAM wasn't supported so get a new card or stop bugging us....and what are you doing STILL running 98SE??
I never got a human in email a ATI.....

ahwell....

*Laughs at Dolby*

For whatever reason, EQIM just plain stopped working for me a while back. I've no idea why. One day it worked, the next day it didn't, and I haven't been able to get it working since. Even tried re-installing it, no joy. Blah.

Unsupported Software? I guess that means that SOE has truely stopped development of it?

It's a nice tool. I do agree it shouldn't cost 5.95$/mnth just to use it. It seems that once that was announced it would be free, EQIM production went to a grinding hault.

Its always been unsupported.

Its not $5.95 a month. They toyed with the idea for chargeing but they made a BIG announcement awhile back saying it would be free and it has been ever since.

I remember the release. They published EQIM aa "Beta" and said it's free for now. They are discussing the price for it and levying towards 5.95$. After a bit of protest about the idea that this utility would cost a monthly fee, SOE made an announcement that it will be free.

question to the mass

i play on the localized server Sébilis (french)

EQim works great but i can't get to see my char names correctly.
instead of Kunis, in the selection and chat windows, i (and the people) just see something like 4b756e6973
and, also, we can't add buddy, nor tell them, if they have an accent on their name (such as Hérisson )


i know that EQim's no longer supported but pleeaaaaaaaaaaaaaase, just patch it. or push UBIsoft to patch it for you

oh, thank you so much that someone still thinks about this. I use the IM all the time, it's such a great thing. It loooves to crash when I log in to certain characters, not sure why. /shrug. And last I checked, it thinks that the Tarew Marr server is 'tarew.name', not the correct 'marr.name.' But we got a channel going for the people there, so it's not that much of an issue now.


I am glad the IM is free; we already pay for the game. And the IM is sooooooooo unbelievably useful. I cannot tell you how happy I am that someone still pays attention. Thank you thank you thank you.

Default EQIM and Trillian

I'd like to see a EQIM plugin for Trillian Pro.
I stopped using it because it created to many windows for my liking to use. If it was integrated into Trillian that would be cool.
