EQ2 Launchpad Going Nuts — 14GB Download?

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Game Updates & Maintenance

A number of players are reporting that their EverQuest II launchpad is trying to re-download the entire 14GB game. Some suggestions:

  • Close and reopen the Launchpad.
  • Click the Tools icon on the lower left of the Launchpad and choose a Full File Scan Validate Game Assets.
  • If all else fails, close the Launchpad, navigate to your EverQuest II install directory and run the EverQuest2.exe application directly.

There is no patch today and certainly no reason to re-download gigabytes of the game you already have.

    Seems to be an issue with the Streaming client. I’m not 100% positive which client I have, but I seem to remember it being streaming because I wanted to play *right now* :) But I don’t think the launcher actually indicates what version it is.

    I ended up downloading the 14GB overnight and it seems to be ok now. By-passing the launcher also works as a temp solution. But I’m betting everyone with the problem will eventually have to re-download the 14GB. I feel for those that have monthly limits or very slow connections :(

    I’ve never had the streaming client, but last time this bug happened I found I was set to streaming. I changed it, and everything was fine.

    ya this isn’t the first or second time EQ2 has had this same exact issue. It would be nice if Soe would get this fixed for good.

      Sorry, it’s called Validate Game Assets. It was called Full File Scan for 6 years.
