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...

Is there an up to date cheat sheet on getting access to Test anywhere?

With the new launchpad it's a little different.

Easy without download/verify and small patching:

Start launchpad. click the tools button in lower left.

Click open game directory.

hold ctrl key and press a (to select all files)

Then hold ctrl key and hit c. (copies everything selected)

make a new folder in that location called testserver

enter that directory and hold ctrl and hit v.

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.

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)

EDIT (added missing step)

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.

Thanks to both of you... I know what my system will be doing this evening. SMILEY

Two requests to GMs;

1 - Put this information into a sticky

2 - Update the link referenced in the first post

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.
