NEQ compatible SERVER posted!

Sorry it took me so long, I forgot to do this. Shortly after I released the NEQ database (see database tab above) Eqemulator seems to have tried to undercut my effort (they don't want anyone to compete with p99 let alone an entire open source community for classic eq!) by ninja changing the server code so it was no longer compatible. My intention was to update the database so it continued to be compatible but other things came up and I haven't done that yet. But anyway I posted a 4/9/17 server in the server tab above so you can compile that and use it to run a server that uses the NEQ database. I will probably also post pre-compiled versions but for now you will have to compile your own using visual studio according to the eqemulator directions for compiling your own server. This will work with your standard titanium client but stay tuned as I will release the special client soon too!

Mobile Everquest 1?

Hey everyone sorry I dropped off the map for a while there.  I am still busy with a high voltage power supply project that I'm working on so probably won't be developing the NEQ database for a little while yet.  For now though just get the database in the database tab above and work on it yourself and let us know what you accomplish!

I know there was one person on the eqemulator forum talking about making a mobile unity client for EQ.  I know that ultimately wouldn't have the same feel as original eq and even if he completed it, it would fall flat.  

But what about a new idea... making a mobile console that plays actual EQ?

How about a scaled down windows PC small enough for you to use it as a mobile device sort of like a tablet?  Using titanium edition I think you could get away with something pretty small.  Even possibly running a windows emulator to play Everquest and it would be compatible with the NEQ server and all other classic EQ emulators.
