some people have it and others dont. Also i dont think it would be good to step into a private server without having played eqlive at least a bit.

So theres no new zones? Just old zones? How often to people actually hunt shit? Ive played EQ for 6 years and I quit simply because there was no one in my level range (too high to hunt newb shit, not uber enough to hunt uber shit). Basically Im screwed because I didnt join an elemental guild when I had the chance.

All the zones were revamped to some extent. Its the classic world of antonica, faydwer, odus, as well as a few random kunark zones placed where they arent normally (warrens links to bancak mines aka nurga). Theres a few PoP zones as well put to use (PoTorment). MANY zones are now lvl 50-65. Freeport is not a friendly zone anymore, neither is HHP. (both taken over by undead). Giants are not KOS albeight they still inhabit kael/stormkeep. Theyve also taken over sleepers tomb. The froglocks reside in kerran isle as well as the halls of meilich aka Guk.

Alot is still the same but its certainly different enough to make you want to play again.

No idea about that memory error.

This is that old EQEmu server that was posted before, Winter's Roar. They just had to rename it cause of legality with Sony. :P

I've got a 60 Pally and 60 Shaman there that I havn't played in ages.

Well I created a new char, my old winters roar characters+account aren't there anymore

I love magicians, so I rolled a delf magician and I'm in oggok. Found 1 of the 4 items I need for the quest the magician trainer gives, but I'm too low lvl to kill the rest of the spawns. Haven't played EQ in awhile so I'm a bit lost. Plus Eve takes up most of my gaming time, but I'll try to play a bit maybe.

THAT is the loophole every private server uses. You cant sue someone because they created their own server software.

Go read the DMCA. You aren't allowed to modify, in any way, the original intent of use by the publisher of a software title. SOE's client is for use with SOE's servers only, that's part of the EULA that you agree to every time you launch the game, period.

It was the same thing with the 'free' battle.net that got handed its ass in court, and they even tried fighting it. Hell man, that was PRE-DMCA

SOE has shut down every single one of the 'bigger' emulated servers out there, and they'll shut this one down too.

There have been numerous emulated eq servers for a long long time. SOE may be legally right, but they haven't been very effective in stopping it. Anyway I bought and paid for the game, all legality aside ethically freeshards are fine in my book.

wether they decide to stop it or not is moot.

Its not legal, there's no loophole. You cannot alter the purpose and use of client/server software for your own use.

They shut down winter's roar because it got too big. Most of the free servers are shaky affairs that crash in no time, when it gets big enough and stable enough, down it goes.

Do L2x servers ever get shut down by the company?
