West bug fix

by Jhet Bhlak on November 6, 2007

Apparently a player came up with a fix for the “West bug” that AMD users have while playing EQ. Here is their description of the fix:

WARNING: The two files linked below will modify your registry. The owner of that website can, at any time, change those files to malicious code that could screw up your computer. Download them at your own risk.

At HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Direct3D create a DWORD key named DisableD3DXPSGP and set the value to 1. If you want to disable it you can either set the key to 0 or delete it.
For those that don’t know how to edit your registry you can download and run a registry script. The
Fix.reg file will enable the fix and the UnFix.reg file will disable it.
After the fix is applied you must restart EQ for the changes to take effect.

NOTE: The fix may not work for everyone or it may not work at all. You may also notice a slight decrease in performance in any program that uses DirectX.”

Here is a link to their post on the EverQuest forum.
