Netcode Update

Just wanted to make a quick update regarding the latest massive change to the Emulator source. Thanks Mackal/demonstar for making the original post to let users know.

KLS has spent close to a year working on a massive revamp of the EQEmu base netcode. After a recent onslaught of testing and ironing out some of the latest issues, it's been stable on PEQ for several days. It has been merged into the master EQEmu branch as of a few nights ago.

This netcode overhaul includes much cleaner and manageable code, many optimizations, far more robust, leaner (takes far less CPU) and has been needed for a long time.

In the changelog there are a few notable changes that you will need to make in your environment if you choose to make this update.

In your eqemu_config.xml you will need to make some changes. To connect to a Loginserver using older netcode such as the EQEmu Loginserver, you will need to add a 'Legacy' XML tag:


If you use the telnet server embedded in the World server, you will need to make the following adjustments to your world config:


These defaults have also been changed in the 'Akka Installer', you can see them here:


For more information, see the changelog:


If you have any questions, you can post them in this thread, otherwise please give a huge thanks to KLS for putting in the time for this!

You need to add the following to make the private loginserver working. Otherwise it defaults to "1".

See here:

P.S. @Admins the CODE-Tag is not working here, please have a look:

I am not the most computer literate individual, but i love my eq and have been playing since '99 and been on tgc since...sleepers was open? anyways i currently have the killians version which i think is platinum? either way i cannot find the file i need to change (since i can get to the server screen but cant get to my character screen im assuming its because i need to make this change)

someone please give me an ELI5 on how to locate this file or if it has a different name on my version or whatever.

thank you and i apologize if this seems like a dumb question. peq'ers tend to be highly computer literate and i know i am kind of a black sheep in this regard so i appreciate anyone taking time out of their day to answer my (probably) stupid question

EDIT - okay, looks like the problem fixed itself so i can log on but it would be nice for future reference to know how to make the change just in case
