We have a server running if you want to poke around and see what we are up to. These are the instructions to get connected and check it out. Please read all of the instructions for each step before starting them.
1.) If you already have DAoC Installed for Uthgard or Live
C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts in file explorer and temporarily
Dark Age of Camelot directory to
Dark Age of Camelot tmp. This
will be needed to allow for a fresh install of the game client.
2.) Download and run the setup
When you get to the part where it asks where you want to install the game;
change it to have
EOD at the end of it like this:
After the install is finished you can rename your original game installation if
you had to from
Dark Age of Camelot tmp back to
Dark Age of Camelot.
Download and install the Dawn of Light portal. Running this installer is a
bit strange. It will dump everything into the same directory that the installer
is in, which will most likely be your downloads directory. You’ll probably want to create a
shortcut for the portal, inside of this directory right click on
send to > Desktop (create shortcut).
After installation start the Portal and press
Ctrl + S to bring up the settings. Once the settings are open you’ll want
to find the directory you installed DAoc to for the
DAoC Installation. Press the
Browse button and locate the
Dark Age of Camelot EOD game installation.
Once you have it set click the
Patch! button to have your client patched.
When patching finishes you can close the patcher window.
When you have this downloaded you will want to extract the file out of this
zip and place it in your
Dark Age of Camelot EOD directory. Now you will
be able to connect to the server!
4.) Connect to the Server
From the DAoC Portal:
- Click on the
- Right click inside the window under the tab and select
- Set the name to
Eve of Darkness
- Set the host name to
Now you can put in any username and password you want, click on
Darkness and press the
Play! button. This will create an account for you
automatically under that username and remember your password. If all went
well you should connect.
- Currently empty slots at the character selection screen have a weird headless model; don’t worry about that. You can create a new character just fine.
