It's easy. The first window you see is the "Choose Your Avatar" screen. There are about five avvies possible, and four are blank (after setting up your default avvie), so just select a blank one and give it a new name and gender.

Cheers,

Dadguy

I was able to download last night around 9pm (ct),It took about 30min or so. I got in to play for about an hour, there where small glitches but all ran fairly well, this is my first time on moul. played the boxed version and expansion packs. Have some things to learn about the features on the KI and the neighborhoods and where to go in the live version. But is definetly enjoyable, obviously since I have never written this much on any forum anywhere. There is alot of conversation going on also which is not my favorite thing to do but if you have your doubts about playing, give it a try its free....As of presently I am unable to log back in.....

I still cant download the patch, and the downloader doesnt clean up after itself when it fails. Have to go into task manager to remove it.

Try this:
How to get in

and this troubleshooting tips

If you are clearing the Task Manager....Clear the first tab AND click on Processes Tab, scroll down and make sure UruLauncher isn't still running on that as well. Clear that too. It might take several tries to get it going but I have had good luck doing that.

Hope to see many of you in the Cavern and the GameBoomer's Hood is up and running!

I was in--- got in around 4:30 just left. Did not see the gameboomer hood?? But I got my Ki and number 00244032.
Will this stay with me.... does the game know where I stopped. Now to figure out what to do. Although I just put my Ki in a machine so I could collect colors....:)

I downloaded from one of the mirror sites in Dudemom's link. It took about an hour -- much faster than before. I'm now at the "patcher" window, and getting a message that due to heavy traffic, they're running at limited capacity.

But at least I've made some progress!

GameBoomer's KI is 83122 and I am also there under DMom2K KI 74181. Big John was there and I got him into the hood and he helped me get DMom2K in. I should be in and hanging around GameBoomers tonite after work - 330 pm EST to help anyone who want to get back. Look for GameBoomer's hood in the Nexus, though it still has the problem of dropping off the list if not used so I can periodically go in and make sure it stays on the listing. Hope to see you all there soon.

Winfrey -- I'm a bit rusty on this, but when we post our Ki numbers here, if you write them down, when you're in Uru you can add us to your Buddy list using our Ki numbers. Then the Ki will tell you whenever one of us is in Uru at the same time that you are, and you can message us and we can meet -- maybe in the GameBoomers' neighborhood, for instance.

Well I finally got into it. The gfx were quite smooth but the sound would break now and then. Not sure how long I would last on it though as it has the sort of movement on it that usually induces nausia (sp?) for me. Didnt effect me last night though as I was only on about 10-15 mins just to see what it is about. So, next question, is there a game in there, a proper adventure game or is it just a meeting place for online avatars? Never played one of these so not sure what is going on.

Since I have not played either Myst or Uru, I have one question---Is this point and click, 'cause WASD and I do not go together.

All good questions and comments. I guess those of us on the outside looking in, as opposed to all of you with experience with this, are intimidated and are trying to get a "hold" on just what this is.


The answer is....chocolate! Who cares what the question is.....

There is a posting topic over in the MOUL forums where you can announce your KI # and avatar name. They have been updating the list as folks post their KI #s.

http://mystonline.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=317315#317315

mj2c, you might try moving in 1st person to see if that helps with the movement issues. The F1 key toggles between 1st and 3rd person.

Have fun everyone!

Has anyone had any joy connecting to MO:UL from outside the continental US/Canada?

Hi Gremlin, I live in Canada. Did you get your e-mail from Cyan? I got mine and set up an account and a password. From there I went into one of their links--play uru live. I then downloaded the game from Fileplanet. All the choices you get on there are USA, except for one that says International,so,since I do not live in the USA, I chose that one and downloaded it onto my hard drive. I am still not out of the woods yet, as when I go to my hard drive and click on the "application", nothing happens, except for a box that comes up telling me that their site is running extremely slowly LOL

Yes, I know of several from UK, Germany, France, Italy and at least one from Australia.

To Dorish, URU is 3D, and you can move in all directions. I like to use the mouse; click to walk forward and slide the mouse left and right to "steer".

Cheers,

Dadguy

Thursday evening Chogon wrote this:

Drastic measure #2.
We will be adding more bigger servers tomorrow to the MOULagain mix and get you people out of being stuck in the patcher and into the cavern!

--Chogon

I believe they are working on it now from talking to some who were in Cavern earlier today who told me servers were down again when I logged into Second Life tonite.

See this for Common Problems and How to Solve Them Once they get things going again, hopefully that will solve the patcher problem.

If patcher is stuck open your Task Manager and make sure you end the UruLauncher on the first tab AND the Processes tab. Then you can try to launch it again. Additionally, especially with Vista and Windows 7 right clicking the shortcut and running it as an administrator also seems to have solved the issues for some.
