I couldn't get in earlier today, but I'm in now! The city is full, but there are a lot of people in The Watcher's Pub right now. Couldn't find the GameBoomers hood on the list, but it'll be easy to try again another time.

I got Winfrey and Dudemom on my Buddy list, but lor, for some reason I couldn't get your Ki number to register.

Dianne -- yes, it's like a multiplayer version of Uru. Anyone can play. You can find out how to join (and there's lots of info on the forums) here at the Myst Online website.

More can be found at some of the links posted earlier on the thread.

EDIT: For those new to URU-Live, here is a YouTube video that shows some of the worlds you can explore (with other players) in URU.

More information is here:

EDIT: OK, here is a detailed description (ignore the GameTap comment and the "visitor status" comments). It is long, so I suggest focusing on Introduction, and GamePlay: What Do I Do Here (there are links to these sections at the top).

http://www.guildofgreeters.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=135&Itemid=38




They just added new servers, and this seems to have made it easier to get in. I made it in for about an hour last evening and was able to speak for a bit with Dadguy. But if you do have problems, Dudemom posted ideas about fixes below. I'm running Win 7, for instance, and find that to get in I have to right click on the game Icon and click on "Run as Administrator" (this seems to be important for some people with Win 7 and Vista):

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

Well, ive had another go. Mmmm, never found any of these hoods people are talking about. Went to a desert, found a bloke sitting in front of a caravan who tells me I need power for...<cant make out what he says next>..., he mentions removing the brake on the windmill (which i cant). Also the game seems to start right from the beginning when I start: no save game?

Not doing anything for me up to now this.

Hi all,

Well I am in the game also.

Just learning to move around is an adventure in itself.

I have found a couple of pages but I have no clue what to do with them.

I also found a map that shows where you are and noticed when you get back more books appear in your home place so that is good.

I don't know what a hood is either so don't know how to find anyone else from here.

I didn't get my email from cyan either so don't know if anything important is in it.

The hood is your neighborhood, called a "Bevin" in the D'ni language. After you've finished the puzzles in the cleft area (where Zandi is) you find your way to your Relto (or your home place or island in the sky) and that is where the linking book for your neighborhood, or Bevin is.

The pages are items that will change things in Relto. They add things like other islands, flora and fauna.

Mj2c -- the game has an autsave function, so anything you did in a previous session is the same when you return. I think what Zandi means when he says the brake on the windmill
Click to reveal..
is a lever inside the living area in the cleft that you click on and your avatar moves it. Then you can manually move a part of the windmill up top to get it started.


If you need more help, the best places to visit would be the GB Hints forum or the Myst Online Help forum.

How odd, the game took me straight to my Relto, and skipped the Cleft altogether.

Can you get to the cleft from the pillar in your Relto? (I should know this, having just done it, but I was so excited it all went by in a kind of blur.)

I can, but I can also get to the Cavern from the first book in my Relto too, so there's no 'need' to do the Cleft puzzles.

mj2c, here is a Walkthrough page with graphics for the Cleft (Desert) to help you get started. smile

http://www.guildofgreeters.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=88&Itemid=39


Gremlin, yes the Online game starts in Relto, and you can visit in the City and the NeighborHoods before doing the Cleft. But you will need to complete the Cleft to progress in the game and get Gahreesen, Teledahn, Kadish, and Eder Gira. smile

I didn't do the cleft area either and wonder also if there is need to do it.

If so then how do I get back to the cleft area?

My books don't have any names on the spines either so no idea what the ages are on them. I can open them and travel to the places though.

I now have 6 or 7 books and a 100 points the game tells me so I don't really want to start over if I don't have to.

I am having trouble finding gameboomers on the public links. Sometimes it is there and other times not.

Oh and my pillar is closed unless you have to open it somehow. Guess I will try that when I go back to it.

Where is the GB relto?
I'm using my same username (colpet) and my KI # 00637228. I started in DRC (129) Bevin.

VHLMagic you should see a hand print on your pillar- place your hand there

colpet - scroll down on the public areas on your Ki- sometimes Gameboomers is not there. If you go there ask someone to help you make it your relto

Thank You Winfrey and I have just gone to the cleft and did everything except find the linking book. I have to go see the walkthrough to see what I have missed.

people are in the Gameboomers relto now-- go find it.

One thing that I like about this is I can go play and explore by my self and then come back to the hood and see and chat with some of my friends from here. I am liking this. Meeting a few new players there too. Everyone is so nice and helpful. Well off to cook dinner. smile

I just created the GameBoomers Bevin. I did it so we could be sure we had it. I'll try to get into it later today. If anyone wants to take it over they can. I just did it to reserve the name.

From experimentation last night, it seems as though you can't see the GameBoomer's bevin/hood in the nexus unless two people are actually in the hood at the time someone is looking for it.

The only other way to get it on the public nexus list is for someone who is already a member of the GB hood to go into the nexus and make the hood private and then immediately to make it public again. That puts it on the list in the nexus for a short time, but it's long enough for someone to get in right away. (Does this make sense?)

R_fike -- Dudemom created a GameBoomer's hood (I think) day before yesterday. So I think there are now two? grin

Ok...now you guys have really confused me (and if you know me-it doesn't take much!). So..which is the original Gameboomer's 'hood?? How come it doesn't stay on the list? One thing i do know for sure is....first of last week i deleted all my old MOUL info/help i had..figured finally time..it wasn't going to be back. AND then......... grrrrrrr....timing...it's everything! smile I also know another thing..i have forgotten so much. I still can't figure out how to operate KI and chat...and not too spiffy at moving around (can't remember how to go sideways..but i'll look it up online). I very much enjoyed the chat and help i had before with fellow 'boomers...and sure missed it while it was away!

not sure if you will be able to tell which is the original-- and we at the moment don't know why you can't always see it. But there are a few of us now that belong to the hood and we should be able to see you and you us when you come on and then invite you to the hood so you can replace your book with the GB book. I am very new to this and am taking oh... baby steps- very one is very helpful- if you want to talk with some one - click on their name and type on your keyboard. I am going to see if anyone is in the hood now.

I'm in so now you can see GB hood. Can't stay long-- but it might last a little while.
