Started up playing EQemu on the Scars of Amerous server for some reason... it was terrible beyond belief. Then one day Project 1999 showed up on the server select screen.

My 'other' vote is for the gamefaqs EQ forums. ^.^

My old server (Tholuxe) still chats amongst each other in little bits. Someone mentioned this was going on. I'd always thought it was a pipe dream that would never happen what with all the delays and SOE shutdowns, so I had forgotten about it until they said it was real and working.

Youtube search and EQClassic forum

I found out last summer when I saw p1999 on the server list for eqemu. I was bored and wanted my eq fix. Than I was like woah! a server that only goes up to velious that is what I want!!

I than made videos and youtube'd them. I than told eqclassic forums but someone saw my post on eqclassic forums and spammed all the members mailboxes with info about the server : )

Best server ever! P1999 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 life 4 life

The project itself I heard about from TTH, although the EMU some old guild mates had told me about it when it first came out two years ago. I'm glad I decided to jump on board.

I joined via a post on somethingawful - as a note, it's written 'somethingaweful' in the poll which is a typo.

Not exactly sure what the chain of events was that brought me here. I may have started around EQClassic forum, then started checking out all the EQEmu stuff (PEQ site, EQEmulator). Finally found this.

06-07-2010, 06:02 AM
I started playing EQemu maybe a year or 2 ago, then forgot about it. Then reinstalled, saw that server in the list with 500 people and decided to give it a go.

06-08-2010, 07:25 PM
facebook. someone was complaining about eq2, and said this was a good game.

Read about in a moved and locked thread on the EQLive boards.

Nilbog emailed me and said "Hey, I got this thing I'm working on, want you to take a look". "Hey, we got a lot of broken stuff and bad stuff on mobs, can you take a look and see if you see anything glaring?". "Hey, if you learn perl you can fix all this stuff!".

While that would generally describe the EQlive class forums, I don't think that's what they meant.

Heard it from some chick who plays Champions Online - please get the word out there more! I'm telling all my friends

07-07-2010, 02:15 PM
My Kid told me about it.
It was EQ originaly that brought me and my sons together as hardcore gamers. So I decided to try it. Since then I have dumped my WoW account and been playing only P1999.

I actually heard about it because I was looking for the classic EQ midi files on youtube and someone posted a comment about it.

Funny enough, the RIFT forums.

Believe it or not I heard about it from a friend I had on a warcraft emulator. We got to talking about the good old days of MMOs and he told me about project1999.....so here I am.

06-15-2012, 10:37 PM
YouTube for me. I was watching old EverQuest videos and I saw in the comment section people chatting about Project 1999. I thought it was some sort of scam or trojan-infested site so I never went. A few months later I went to another video where the guy was uploading Project 1999 footage (of his character) and was talking about his experiences. Thought I would give it a try and that's about it.

Was playing in a progression guild on live (Zek) back in '10 and people
were talking about it.
Before the big hack on SoE I was playing on the Vulak'Arr progression server.
After the hack I cancelled my account and started playing here not long after

07-22-2012, 08:39 PM
Was youtubing Everquest, reminiscing about good times, & saw the youtube vid, "how to play the original everquest for free" which had download & installing instructions.

07-23-2012, 03:21 PM
I heard about it on 4chan actually. Folks had an EQ thread and someone mentioned p99. so here I am today.

07-23-2012, 06:55 PM
fark dot com - someone posted in a thread - wish I could remember who

07-24-2012, 06:11 PM
When I accidentally found out that EQ is now FTP, I thought I'd try it out again. It was really care bear. I was complaining about how easy it was and someone suggested Project 1999.

Originally on my old guilds message board and then I looked into it a little more on FoH.

I was researching the Spirit Shroud ops for EQEmu when Project 1999 was announced. Obviously, I never finished the work on Spirit Shrouds, although I was able to decode some of the ops for it. (Never found the magic one that actually transformed you.) :P Can't remember why I stopped playing P99 back then, but I was going through some tough times. A RL friend started telling me about P99 and that they were playing it just recently, so I loaded up my chars again and am having a blast.

08-22-2013, 06:16 AM
I wanted to check how the other classic eq project was doing, and I noticed it still hasnt gone further. So I checked google if there is anything similar and found p99. :)
I love it, people are as nice (often even nicer) as in the classic days and I am addicted again.
I just wish I would have found it sooner to experience it again without Kunark. Still, I am excited for Velious and Luclin.

08-22-2013, 06:21 AM
Pirates Vikings Knights 2 in-game.. some people were talking about it saying p99 is way better than live.

09-08-2013, 03:56 PM
One day, about a year ago, while surfing, I stumbled upon my guild's long-since dead, former ezboards forum and read an old post about it.

09-21-2013, 09:44 PM
Played alot of emu since late 2007 (quit live during PoR) actually heard about it from the emu server listing and tried it out in late 2009, 99 was the first place I camped the Oasis Crocs and killed Lockjaw lol
