Any suggestions?

The error you're encountering while playing EverQuest 2 appears to be a typical application error causing the game to crash. The faulting module is the same as the application itself, which often indicates an issue within the application code or its interaction with the system.

Here are some troubleshooting steps you can try to address this issue:

1. Update Graphics Drivers:
- Ensure your graphics drivers are up to date. Outdated drivers can sometimes cause crashes in games.

2. Check for Game Updates:
- Make sure EverQuest 2 is fully updated. Developers often release patches to address known issues.

3. Run as Administrator:
- Try running EverQuest 2 as an administrator to see if it resolves the crash.

4. Compatibility Mode:
- Set the game to run in compatibility mode for an older version of Windows. Right-click on the game's executable, go to Properties, then the Compatibility tab.

5. Memory Issues:
- Test your RAM modules for errors. You can use Windows Memory Diagnostic or MemTest86 to check for memory problems.

6. Overheating:
- Monitor your system's temperature while playing. Overheating can lead to instability and crashes. Ensure proper ventilation and cooling for your system.

7. System File Checker:
- Run the System File Checker tool to scan for and repair corrupt system files that might be causing the crash. Open Command Prompt as an administrator and run sfc /scannow.

8. Check Event Viewer:
- Look for any additional information in the Event Viewer that might provide more details about the crash.

9. Reinstall the Game:
- If none of the above steps work, try uninstalling and reinstalling EverQuest 2.

If after trying these steps the issue persists, it might be beneficial to reach out to the game's support team for further assistance, as they may have specific insights into this particular crash scenario.

Feel free to try these suggestions and let me know if you need further assistance!
