1. Defragment your hard drive! After every install on your hard drive will fragment files and folders. This causes a signifigant slowdown in ecerything that uses those files. I suggest you buy or download Diskeeper to do this, as it is a lot faster than the windows defragmenter and does a much better job at defragging your drives.

2. Add more RAM! The game says the minimum requirements for it is 512 MB. The games does not run very well with only this much. You should use atleast 1 GB RAM in order to get maximum performance.

3. Change you paging file! Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > System > Advanced > Performance > Advanced > Virtual Memory and change your Minimum and Maximum size for your paging file. The minimum should be how much RAM you have. The maximum should be 1.5 X your RAM.

4. Put your paging file on another hard drive! It will allow your hard drives heads to read and write at the same time.

5. Turn off indexing on your hard drive! Turning this off will increase performance because the computer won't have to register it in it's fast search file.

6. Another way to greatly improve preformence is to turn down the complex shader distance.

Not bad info, but its hardly anything that you couldn't find a lot of on the official EQ2 boards. I don't think its worth premium.

Its not free, but there is a nice trial version. One of a short list of 'utility' type apps worth actualy buying, IMHO.

I would recomend premium on one of two conditions (or a combination of both):
Either more info- this is a good starting point, but most sugestions are good maintance anyhow, and should be standard practice for anyone who calls themselves computer litterate. There has to be more specific, more obscure things one can do to really max out thier gaming box... lets see those hardcore 'blazing fast, or blow-up trying' tweaks

OR the same tips, explained in excruciating details- with screenshots, if possible- to help the real newbs get thier systems on the same level the rest of us expect. Belive it or not, your post is actualy too technical for a shocking number of people.

So, in other words- make it either 'geekier', or dumb it down. As it is, anyone who can follow your post likely already knows everything you posted. That make sense?

"Put your paging file on another hard drive! It will allow your hard drives heads to read and write at the same time. "


2 drives on the same IDE cable cannot communicate at the same time.
So you need 1 drive on IDE 1 the other on IDE 2 for both drives to spin at the same time.

Dunno bout Sata

How do you turn indexing off on a HD, and what impact would it have on the rest of the system?
