Windows 8 and Direct X Questions

Post by Deelwifit on Thu Feb 20, 2014 3:42 am

If anyone can help me that would be great.  Had to buy a new desktop last night as mine took a nose dive.  Of course Windows 8 and updates done.  Installed latest version of Direct X.  Installed Everquest (yes anti-virus was placed on hold while installing) and then was ready to play.  I clicked the play button on the launchpad.  It acted like it was going to go for about 2-3 seconds and then a window popped up saying that the client EverQuest has crashed.  It keeps happening even after I re-booted the computer.  

Starting to freak out a bit because I need to get my cleric ready for raid on Sunday and I'm now feeling incredibly dumb right now.  If anyone knows how to fix this or has suggestions....I'm all ears!

Also bought the Logitech G105 Gaming keyboard.  Clueless there too on how to set up macro's.  The website along with help screen assumes you've done this before and I have not.  Help in this area would also be appreciated!  

Thanks in advance!

I got it figured out.  I did a test compatibility and it fixed itself.  I don't know what went wrong, but I just spent the last 14 hours messing with it.

I'm still trying to figure it out Bow to be quite honest.  I got part of it figured out, but I spammed the heck out of a fellow guildie by accident so it's a work in progress.  I'm thinking once I get it figured out, I will like it a lot.
