# Date: 2017-Nov-30
# Author: Steven Binion
# Wine version used: 2.17-staging
# Distribution used to test: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (amd64)
# Game: Everquest II: Planes of Prophecy (2017) Free 2 Play
# Licence: Retail (Not all content will be available without a subscription)
# Script Reference: Everquest II (7 years old) by Benj
# Wine Reference: https://forums.daybreakgames.com/eq2/index.php?threads/playing-on-linux-with-wine.563531/#post-6257396

# Notes: Works best with staging CMST enabled. Not yet experimented with newer wine versions, but not seen the need.
# Everquest II still starts DirectX Install though already installed by POL, you can just click cancel.
# Open the launcher, then in Advanced Settings/Select Game Version be sure to check off Full Download.
