Yes, you can use Audio speech (in addition to text chat) in URU. If you have a microphone, make sure that your sound settings are set up properly in Windows (as if you were going to record something, or do a Skype broadcast), then when in URU just press and hold the TAB button to speak. You should see a little Green light when your mic is on for Speech. You may have to check your Audio settings in "Game Settings" (the little "wrench pop-up" in the lower right of your screen) and make sure Audio and Speech are set up properly.

Finally back with internet and I created a new avie: K'atva (Ki# 378846).

So nice to see so many of the old group and meet a lot of new explorers.

Feel free to ask me for help anytime you see me. BTW, if you are looking for the GameBoomer's Hood and want to make it easier to see on the Nexus list, hit name and all the hoods will appear alphabetically. Might make it easier for you to find.
Hope to see you all soon!

Is amazing to me to see how many people are back and participating in this game. Maybe somehow it will encourage whoever/whatever needs to be done..to add new Ages (maybe some not as difficult as Minkata.or Pods)..with gobs of area to explore. (and maybe give us 'jumping' impaired some other way to get to them!..maybe secret passages..)

So excited. Just happened to come into GB yesterday and saw that URU was back. Spent hours last night trying to get my screen name and pw to work. Finally had to start over. Just waiting now for my new pw so I can get back in.

URU name Pandora

I just have to say how much I am enjoying playing Uru love. I stopped by yesterday --just for a moment---- and 5 hours later!!!!! There is just sooooo much to explore. I am still very new at this, but the help in there is awesome. I lov the fact I ca see you is in there by just keeping my Ki open and the fact that if you get stuck you can yell out for help or a comment. I played one part yesterday with a group I don't even know. I had jumped to the Ferry Building and there were like 10 people gathered- they asked me if I wanted to help and I said yes-- I was sent an invitation and was told how to find it and off I went on an adventure..... how fun. Later I met up with some friends and then off to play by myself. The best of all worlds... Well enough--- hope to see you all there smile

So glad you are enjoying-and yes, it can be addictive! lol

There is talk of having the annual St Patrick's Day Parade. Ooh...what fun that is. Hope that GB hood can up with a good bunch of marchers (heh...anyone remember the route through the neighborhood??)

Yes, I remember the route through the neighborhood. lol (First thing I did when I got back into the hood this time.)

I tried drdel's marker game last night. That one marker in the museum is quite a challenge. grin

I'm currently doing the one in the city. Haven't done the Gira one. I like high places. grin Creative, isn't she?

If I can figure out how to send it, I will. My current theory is that she somehow got a cone in just the right place near the wall next to the Museum staircase, and seeded the marker there that way. wave

Theory two: the boots give you a couple of extra inches if you're wearing them while creating (or playing) marker games. Or maybe one of the hats gives you a bit of height on your head as you leap up.

Becky considers a wardrobe change. Anything that adds height, bulk or protuberances. What happened to that ridiculously tall St. Patrick's Day hat?

I was nervous for awhile- I had this ugly(in my opinion) helmet on and I feared I would have to have it on for the rest of my Uru life...... thank heavens I figured out I could change back to a different hat..:) Again- went in for a moment and ended up there all morning smile
I posted a picture I took with the qroup I played with the other day in our Belvin--- did not know I could do that-- was just playing around--:)

I ran into VHLMagic today in the city and we were talking about the icons associated with the marker games in the Great Zero. If you wander around the city looking at the walls near junctions and staircases, you'll see some of the arrows with these icons also on them.

From the arrows around the city, and from the shapes of the buildings, this is my interpretation of which buildings the icons represent:

First row of icons in the Great Zero Marker Imager Thingie (on the left), starting at the top and going down:

Grand Staircase
Library
Library
Concert Hall
Library
Neighborhood
Neighborhood

Second row of icons (on the right) starting at the top and going down:

Concert Hall
Grand Staircase
Ferrylanding
Ferrylanding
Ferry landing
Great Zero
???

Although markers will be found at the locations these icons designate, all the marker games (that I recall) also wander all over, so that the icons are only partly helpful in terms of where markers for that particular game might be found.

If that makes sense. grin

Drdel -- your marker game has defeated me. burger

Hi guys. Am downloading now and looking forward to giving this a try. Like Mary I'm a little nervous about it (so used to playing games totally alone-lol) but since being on GB for a few years I'm sure you guys will hold my hand if I need it. LOL

btw--am waiting in a queue to download this now and hope to be on sometime soon. I think I will be using my old screen name from here, Catbelly36, just to let ya know. And I'll post my Ki number when I get one.

I never did finish playing URU the regular, boxed version, so this will be interesting!

Thanks for all your help in advance,
Tracy smile

Tracy -- in case you didn't see them earlier, here are Ki numbers of other GB hood members that you can put on your buddy list. I'm adding K'atva to the list.

DMom2K 74181 (Dudemom_2000)
Lor 122418 (catsskeg]
Becky 271088
Winfrey 244032
Boomerbob 567506 (r_fike)
D'anileu 524857 (Nanjoan)
Air Navy 283549
Mikeplay 618397
K'atva 378846 (KateVa)
Bigwuss 00866357 (gamenut)



Looking at the icon symbols, I'm slowly remembering a theory I was working on right before MOUL ended last year. I think the icons on the list at the Great Zero are associated with the nexus linking stations in the city. So the missing ??? location would have to be the Palace because that's the only linking station not "taken" yet.

You used to be able to link in at the various linking stations in the city once you had used them -- they would appear on the list when you were in the nexus trying to link into the city. So far, though, the only place I can link into the "official" city is at the Ferry Landing, not anywhere else.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

I have more then one place to link to in the city.

All you have to do is every station you come to just stick your hand in the KI reading thing and the location will appear on the city links the next time you go to the nexus.

I have:
The Ferry link
Tokotah courtyard/Alley
Library Courtyard
Concert Hall
Palace Alcove

It sure helps when looking for markers and you don't have to run around the whole city to get to where they start.

I've linked out using them. I don't think I've used the Ki reading device in them, now that you mention it.

Thank you! wave

Hi Becky and Winfrey! I linked to Phil's relto and was unable to find the only active linking book to Kirel. Thinking this was because Kirel was already in Nexus I linked there only to find that the Nexus linking book pedestal has no Ki activating device on it. Have I forgottten to activate something? I thought you had to program your Ki at this point to advance in the game. headscratch wave

Winfrey -- most of the linking stations have a kind of mailbox lump on the left. It has a separate hotspot from the hotspot that takes you to the linking page. You have to carefully find that upper-leftish hotspot, and then your avatar puts a hand in it and you get a text message that a link has been added.

Air Navy -- I'm taking things slowly (well, in the game) and I'm not sure how to answer your question! Maybe someone else knows? The pedestal in the neighborhoods don't have activating devices either (I'm now snooping around looking for all the activating devices on linking pedestals/stations that I can find.)
