Login Issues, SOE Forums Offline, Launcher Black Screen

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Game Updates & Maintenance

We’re receiving reports that players aren’t able to progress past the black screen with SOE logo of the EQ2 Launcher. Anyone who is currently logged in is apparently able to stay in, but otherwise, players are having difficulty getting past this splash screen:

In possibly related news, the EQ2 forums seem to be down for unscheduled maintenance.

UPDATE from Amnerys on SOE’s Twitter 14 minutes ago:

Hey everyone! We are currently having some issues with the Launcher and working on getting them fixed as quickly as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience! [Amnerys]

NOTICE: Some players have been able to login to EQ2 by bypassing the launcher and starting EverQuest2.exe directly from inside your EQ2 directory.

Trackback from your site.

    From the EQ2 Facebook Page:

    Forums are also down temporarily. [Amnerys]

    I’ve also heard that running Everquest2.exe isn’t working either.

    Seems to be SOE-wide as I can’t log into any SOE game right now.

    Running the .exe doesn’t work or at least it didn’t for me. It tells me my version doesn’t match the server and to run the patcher……oh wait the patcher doesn’t work >.>

      Electri,

      It was a pretty gnarly outage to affect the SOE Forums and even the Data Feeds were affected. EQ2U pages that hit the official SOE servers were not working for a few minutes.
