So i have this thread here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2105658
and so as my comment says, I have downloaded Steam via Play on Linux, then downloaded Everquest 2 via Steam. The fonts were not working at first (would say 'failed to init arial, but fixed that with font manager) but i solved that, however, the game now looks like this https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BAwsJETCUAAgDCC.png:medium
I have no idea what to do from here, but I would love to get into some PC gaming, and Ubuntu (12.04) is all I have. Thank you so much for any help!

The link below is to the WineHQ website page -- and the results aren't encouraging as any rating below GOLS for a game means that installing it is essentially a waste of time:

However, if you browse through the details of the test results, you may find something useful.
