<p>The instructions at http://www.everquest2.com/news/article?month=012009&id=2036 tell you to copy the game directory and make a shortcut to the TestEQ2.ext file.   Unfortunately, there isn't a file by that name on my computer...</p><p>Is there an up to date cheat sheet on getting access to Test anywhere?</p>

<p>With the new launchpad it's a little different.</p><p>Easy without download/verify and small patching:</p><p>Start launchpad. click the tools button in lower left.</p><p>Click open game directory.</p><p>hold ctrl key and press a (to select all files)</p><p>Then hold ctrl key and hit c. (copies everything selected)</p><p>make a new folder in that location called testserver</p><p>enter that directory and hold ctrl and hit v.</p><p>that copies live to test. once the copy is done re-start the patcher and in the upper left where it says version: US English, click that, then on the screen that comes up ther's a dropdown. click that and choose public test.</p><p>Should be a short patch and that's it. To go back to live hit version and switch back to US English (or whatever yours is supposed to be)</p><p>EDIT (added missing step)</p>

<p>Or as a time consuming process, you can start launchpad, click version US English, change it to Public Test, apply and wait a couple hours.</p>

<p>Thanks to both of you... I know what my system will be doing this evening. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>Two requests to GMs;</p><p>1 - Put this information into a sticky</p><p>2 - Update the link referenced in the first post</p>

<p>I thought I had one up in the test forums but must have removed it for some reason.  I'll put up a new sticky there.</p>
