About Uru live...

About Uru live... - 03/29/10 08:40 AM

Hi. I know there's been a huge URU live discussion here lately but I'm so cut out of the loop that I felt an urge to start a new one. Well, not a discussion, simply some questions I would like to have answered.

I have played URU single version long, long ago, when it first got published, and was there when Cyan declared they will not open the online version. I remember there was even a fan-based 8$ thingy that I purchased that enabled the online version to work, only without new contents.
I slowly lost my interest, because it felt this game was already in too much fan control. I like plot-driven stories, and it disappointed me the plot isn't going anywhere.

So, with all the new buzz:
1. How come URU live suddenly opened? Who opened it? Cyan? What caused it?

2. Is new material + new plot being released?

3. I know that many of the single-player puzzles, especially in the expansion pack POTS, were designed for two or more players, but eventually were reduced to fit into a single-player version.
Was that changed? Can some puzzles now actually be solved with only a number of players?
Are there new puzzles?

4. Does it cost money? Do I need both the single player and POTS to try it?

I think that's it for now.
I know this information is out there, but it always hides under huge amount of data I can't understand (I was always behind - even when I was interested!)

Thank you very much smile
Tomer.

The first Uru Live thread IS getting rather long. This might be a good opportunity to start fresh! I'm locking the old thread and putting a link in it to this one, so we can keep up the conversation.

Others will probably chime in, but here are answers to some of your questions.

More about MOULagain

Cyan opened Uru Live (MOULagain) because the intrepid fans demanded it. There's now a community built up around the game that wants to continue.

It's a free download. You can donate if you wish. If lots of people donate, the game will continue.

There is new material that wasn't on the disk version -- it's the new material that was added while MOUL was in Gametap. Currently, there is no new material being added, but tools are being released so that some of the community who are adept at this can attempt to create their own Ages.

A few puzzles in MOUL do require a partner or partners.

Where to go to Download

You don't need to purchase or use the single player version. It's a completely new download from the Myst Online site. You'll find the download here.

I hope you'll be joining us. smile The Guild of Greeters are terrific at helping new gamers. And there's a GameBoomers bevin/neighborhood where you might stumble across some familiar names/faces.

To see information from the previous MOULagain thread, click here. If anyone wants to post below with important explanatory links, that would be great! grin

EDIT: Below are Ki numbers of MOULagain players (some in the GameBoomers hood/bevin, others from other bevins) that have already been posted on other MOULagain posts.

Re: About Uru live... - 03/30/10 02:11 AM

I've been gone for a week-- missed not being able to hop into Uru for my fix.
I am now looking for markers. I am on my second set? When I go thru a marker it gives me a number. I have been writing them down--- there are a lot of numbers... do I need to do this??? Sure would hate to be jotting all these numbers down for nothing--lol
And now I am behind a week in making pellets--- I'll never get back on that list--- OM-- has a million!!!!!!! smile

Re: About Uru live... - 03/30/10 03:15 AM

Hi Winfrey. I don't THINK you need to record any numbers while doing these in MOUL. At least, I didn't. grin

Re: About Uru live... - 03/30/10 04:22 AM

NO! No need to record the marker coordinates. :-) Heheh... I like your enthusiasm though. :-)

Re: About Uru live... - 03/30/10 08:31 PM

Thanks, I was writing a lot of numbers...lol
I just got done jumping off a cliff--- well ok I jumped off it at least 30 times before lining up correctly--- they put those markers in the strangest places--- well off to check on my pellets smile
Posted By: Becky

Re: About Uru live... - 03/30/10 09:26 PM

Get used to the falling off a cliff thing when it comes to the marker quests. grin

Has everyone recovered from the St. Pat's Day parade? I was in the city last night (well, early this morning) and it was veeery quiet.
Posted By: Winfrey

Re: About Uru live... - 03/30/10 10:15 PM

I'm on my third set of markers only one left -- an lol yes I've been jumping off lots of edges. I have one marker to find on this one and can't seem to locate it. It has to be somewhere around without linking to some balcony or other island right- somewhere at ferry or the palace or library and surrounding areas--- I don't link off to find one do I

edit-- guess I need glasses- I did find them all--- hmmm onto the 4th set wave

Hi Boomers,
I have been reading everything about uru live & I am really nervous about playing it because you interact with other people & I am really shy blush
Can it be played compltely by myself?
Also is there an up to date walkthrough?
The original URU & the add ons is my most favourite game of all I have played so I am hoping I can play uru live and not find I am in over my head confused
thanks
Gloria

Re: About Uru live... - 04/02/10 05:27 AM

glozza, you can play most all of it alone. There are a few places that you need help with. If you liked the original URU please, take a chance and come on in. Everyone is very nice and there is help from some of the ones that played when it first came out. I don't know about up to date walkthroughs but there are walkthroughs on their forum and you can use the ones here to help you. Hope to see you there. smile

glozza, when you get into Uru live, post here and if you want one of us will try and meet up with you so you can become part of the Gameboomers group. That way if and when you want to talk or ask something you will be able to see if we are around. smile good luck I just met someone yesterday and she taught me how to get on top of the Map(sign) at the Ferry Building area.. I was quite pleased with myself... monky

Posted By: Tomer

Re: About Uru live... - 04/03/10 01:23 PM

Hello everyone.
I entered Urulive for the first time yesterday. Was cool, but found it a little strange to just "talk to strangers".
I want to start the basic single-player pillar game that I've played years ago, but would be happy to do it with someone.
Is anyone here interested in sharing this with me? smile
It's a little awkward just asking that in the middle of a random "Bevin" smile
Posted By: Becky

Re: About Uru live... - 04/03/10 02:25 PM

Monbron -- the download took me about an hour. I have cable broadband.

Finding others in MOULagain:

I’ve included a list of Ki numbers posted on the previous thread. I’ve undoubtedly missed somebody (I always miss somebody frown )if so, please post your Ki number again here!

Tomer, if you input these Ki numbers into the Buddy List on your Ki, you will see these people when they are in MOULagain at the same time you are. You can then click on their names and type a message to them to ask to meet somewhere. The best way to get help on the Ages is to join the GB hood/bevin, giving you easier access to the other members.

Note: if you don’t mind posting your Ki number here, it’ll make it easier for others to respond to you – if you message a Buddy and they don’t get back to you, either they are away from the keyboard or they haven’t figured out how to respond yet, but keep trying and sooner or later you will be able to get together. (Some of those names listed below are members of GB hood, but many others are members of other hoods.)

Another great place to find help for the Ages is to stop by the Guild of Greeters bevin.

To enter a Ki number in your buddy list:

Quote:
Open your Ki
Click on the "person" icon (extended arms)
Click on "Buddies" beneath the "person" icon
On the top right you'll see "Add buddy...."
Click on "Add buddy"
Type in the Ki number of the person you want to make into a buddy
Hit the "enter" key on your computer

You should now see this person's name showing up at the top left of the Ki info under "Buddies" whenever they are in MOUL with you. To contact them, click on their name on that top left list, type a message, and hit "enter" on your computer

A side note: URU switches off the NumLock on the numbers keypad, so you will need to enter the KI numbers via the numbers at the top of your QWERTY keys.


Some links from the previous thread that might be helpful:

Quote:
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

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.

Dadguy,
In the spot I think you mean, I have "000".
Maybe it's because I haven't calibrated my KI?
Posted By: dadguy

Re: About Uru live... - 04/05/10 01:48 PM

Hey Tomer! smile

OK, I just went in (I was working from memory), and I can confirm that the (ID:XXXXXXXXXX) number is your KI number, so your KI is 04364763. Maybe Becky can now add you to the list.

The other number you mentioned is probably your pellet count number. Later on in the game, you'll be able to collect pellet values that will show up in that area next to the icon that looks like a tylenol dropping into water. smile

Hope to see you online soon!

Dadguy
Posted By: Becky

Re: About Uru live... - 04/05/10 02:35 PM

I added jody319 and Tomer to the list! (I've been deleting the zeros at the beginning of the Ki numbers because you don't need them to input the number into your Buddy List.)

Just wanted to say:

Dadguy = amazing!

We chatted for about an hour in my Relto about Uru today, and he explained tons of stuff, and showed me around the ages, and got me 1000 times more excited about it!!!

Dadguy, thank you! smile

What a grand game.
Posted By: dadguy

Re: About Uru live... - 04/05/10 08:42 PM

Winfrey, there may be other events that will use Teamspeak. So, the answer is that there may well be other reasons to hang onto Teamspeak.


Tomer, thanks! That was fun today. You can see there's a lot more to do. smile

I was hoping to find a member of the GB Hood online to get Tomer switched over, but I am sure we'll find other opportunities.

Pellet question, say I made 20,000 pellets and I go click on the pellet counter in the hood, Then I get another 10,000 pellets and go click on the counter in the hood-- will it show a total of 30,000 or will my 10,000 be a separate count?
Posted By: dadguy

Re: About Uru live... - 04/10/10 03:13 AM

Good question, Winfrey. smile

What it will do is register two seperate downloads of 20,000 and 10,000. If you are lucky enough to be in the top ten (or however many make the page) on both counts, then your name will be listed twice as 20,000 and 10,000. The total of 30,000 goes towards that Hood's grand total.

So check out the list in your Hood and if you want your name recorded for bragging rights, make sure your total single download is high enough to show. smile

Cheers,

Dadguy

I was in the GoG Hood two nights ago when an explorer did a test of the famous URU "Easter Egg" that when completed allows you to jump over the fence in a special spot in the Cleft (Desert). A Boomer must have completed that Easter Egg. If I can find the link to the "procedures" for that egg, I'll post.

Thanks for the kind comments about Moderating at MOUL. smile

Cheers,

Dadguy

PS: In MOULagain, you can't drive the motor home, but you can visit it.

Question: Is nothing supposed to happen after I complete the 14 marker missions?!?!
Posted By: Becky

Re: About Uru live... - 04/21/10 11:30 AM

If it is, I don't think anyone has figured it out yet. grin
Posted By: Tomer

Re: About Uru live... - 04/21/10 12:14 PM

I can't believe I wasn't warned about that! smile
So no way of calibrating KI?

Another question:
I started to try and solve Minkata, but it's proving difficult smile
I wondered if there's anyone here who:
1. Likes challenges.
2. Has no idea how to solve Minkata as well.
3. Wants to try and solve it together.

Thanks,
Tomer.

First: Happy New Year everyone! (and if you haven't been to the hood today you should go and wait for the...treat!)

As for the marker missions-once upon a time we all had to calibrate the GZ. Then we got the spiral and (boy my memory is shot) we had to jump off the Takohta cliff into the spiral. Ah, too many years ago.

Minkata-tough one. I finished it but had help.

Kate

PS your Ki should be working nicely Tomer-you can now make your own marker games, yes?

Re: About Uru live... - 04/21/10 01:51 PM

Kateva - I just recall from the offline version I could see coordinates which I cannot :-\
Marker game - not that I really know how to do that - but yes, I can do it, and I think I could even before doing the 14 bothersome marker missions.
Posted By: Becky

Re: About Uru live... - 04/21/10 02:02 PM

I remember before they calibrated the Great Zero, you could tell that the coordinates in places were actually wrong. Didn't a bunch of us wander around talking about that at one point?

Then the marker missions were supposed to help the DRC calibrate the Great Zero, which they eventually did.

So the marker missions were part of the ongoing story, which has since become history.

However, I still hold out hope that there's a way of doing those particular 14 missions that brings a different reward, and we just haven't figured it out yet.

Re: About Uru live... - 04/21/10 02:50 PM

Tomer, I have markers for the Minkata part, If after awhile you can't to it. If I can work out how to transfer these to you I will... I may have to talk to dadguy and get a lesson in transferring files LoL

tomer I tried sending you marker 1 mission. Look in your incoming and see if you see it,
K.. I am in the Belvin but nothing is happening-- guess I'll sit some more smile

Actually "something" does happen. The KI "GPS" will work. However, they only work within range of the Great Zero. (Relto and other Ages are not in range)

Re: About Uru live... - 04/21/10 03:20 PM

Oooooh. That's VERY vague, don't you know. I'm now wondering what I missed in MOULagain that must have been there before in GameTap when I finished the missions.

Mine doesn't show any coordinates though...

Re: About Uru live... - 04/22/10 12:14 AM

Surely Becky and Winfrey-you saw the banner? I have seen the pyrotechnics twice today. About a quarter to the hour...but I dont know if it is timed or linked to link ins..so to speak.

Re: About Uru live... - 04/22/10 02:08 AM

Yes, saw the banner... very nice, but I guess Winfrey doesn't weight enough to trigger off the pyrotechnics-- sat again patiently from 6:32 till 7:04. Next year we should throw a party! smile
Posted By: Dave McB

Re: About Uru live... - 04/22/10 03:16 AM

Tomer, open the big KI and look in the upper right of the screen. Do you see the co-ordinates there?

If you don't, you may have not done all the missions (check) or, you've encountered a bug.

Hope this helps. Dave
Posted By: dadguy

Re: About Uru live... - 04/22/10 03:34 AM

Also, where are you when you are looking for coordinates? Only Ages within range of the GZ show coordinates (like The City, Bevins).

Cheers,

Dadguy

Re: About Uru live... - 04/22/10 11:14 AM

No Winfrey its not you, I also waited patiently but saw no fireworks. Definitely think BG should throw a party as I missed the St Patrick's one. happydance
Posted By: Becky

Re: About Uru live... - 04/22/10 11:31 AM

Well, I noticed that the cones are all nicely in one room and the fireballs all nicely in one spot. (Someone with energy cleaned up after the St. Pat's Parade!)

Err, I'll look for the banner today. grin
Posted By: Tomer

Re: About Uru live... - 04/22/10 11:58 PM

dadguy and Dave - you guys are right. In the offline version coordinates used to be written on the small KI. Now it indeed appears on the big screen (which is a little less fun but oh well).
Also - in the nexus, in the offline version, if I'm not mistaken, one could see the coordinates of the different places (instead of 0000 00 00), and here I don't see it (might be wrong about the offline version though!).

So - no volunteers for Minkata? :-\
Posted By: dadguy

Re: About Uru live... - 04/23/10 03:31 AM

Tomer, are you looking for some explorer company when working on this Age? It's a fun one to handle with a friend.

Look for us online and give a shout.

Re: About Uru live... - 04/23/10 08:22 AM

dadguy, I'm looking for someone to solve it with, who hasn't yet solved it, since trying myself I didn't progress much, and if it's as hard as Ahnonay (or more), there's no chance I'll solve it on my own.
But two minds are better than one smile
I do want to try and solve it though...

Posted By: Becky

Re: About Uru live... - 04/27/10 12:53 AM

So your back was to the fireworks? sad

I accidentally kicked a fire marble out from where they are so nicely placed in the linking area and it landed on the landing across the way.

SCORE!

Then when I tried to kick it back, it went into the water. Um, have I destroyed one of our fire marbles?
Posted By: Winfrey

Re: About Uru live... - 04/27/10 01:42 AM

Yes, bummer- I thought it would be outside-- for awhile I was standing in the water- too bad it didn't go off then.---
I will have to go look for that fire marbles--- rotfl

Re: About Uru live... - 10/12/10 12:11 AM

Fun it was! Although disappointing that not a lot of the group were GBers. However, we had 20 in the hood and I laughed a whole lot! We also had a number of new explorers wander in-and that is what this is all about. Getting a broader group into Uru.

Let's do this again, and see if we can get more of our hood "reingaged". I think we need some ideas on games to play while waiting for the Cavcon meter to allow new "stuff" into Uru. Any ideas?
