Q3 Monthly MMO Meetup - Earth & Beyond
Hey friends, for Q3's (July, August, September) MMO Meetup, we'll be playing the fantastic MMO, Earth & Beyond. The dates/times (Pacific Time) are:

7/30/17 - 9 AM
8/27/17 - 9 AM
9/24/17 - 9 AM

You can download and play the game for free from Net-7:

https://www.net-7.org/

Here are the directions from their FAQ on how to get the game:

I get in the game, please follow the instructions below. If you have any issues, please refer to the forums.

1. Click on the 'Register' button to the right of the Earth and Beyond Emulator Logo.
2. Fill in the details on the registration page and confirm your email address.
3. Once you have a Master Account, log in to the Net7 Portal (this site).
4. From the accounts menu, click the 'Add Game Account' button, and fill in the details.
5. You now have a Game account ! YEY !
6. Now navigate to the 'Main' Menu and select 'Downloads'.
7. You will only need to download 'Earth & Beyond Client' and 'Net-7 Unified Installer'
8. Once downloaded, run the 'Earth & Beyond Client' install first, and wait for it to complete. (Please delete the shortcut from your desktop as you do not need to run this.
9. Now install the 'Net-7 Unified Installer'. You will be asked a few questions during the install.
10. Next, navigate to your 'Start' menu and locate the Earth and Beyond shortcut Folder.
11. Once there, run the 'Earth & Beyond Configuration' shortcut, and select your desired settings. Make sure you run as 'Administrator' (Rightclick the shortcut and select 'Run as Admin') and also hit the 'Performance Test'.
12. Now run the 'LaunchNet7' shortcut on your desktop. This is the main launcher for the game.
13. On first run, the launcher will update a few times, to make sure you have the latest release.
14. Once the updates are complete, press the "Play" button on the launcher.
15. The first time you press 'PLAY' you may be presented with a certificate install screen. Just press OK.
16. The game will now launch.
17. Once at the log in screen, (Say Hi to Megan), enter your 'GAME' account information (Step 4).
18. Create your Character and enjoy the game !

You can find the unified installer here:

As for characters, I personally play a Jenquai Explorer, but your choice is up to you.

See you in the game!

hmm, why would I play this game, is it run on a server so I can meet others or its just to show how it looked like?
Has it got something special?
BrianRubin Jul 31, 2017 @ 3:20am 
Well, it's a fairly fun game that's free to play since it was officially shut down 13 years ago, and it's a piece of gaming history, so it's fascinating to see 2002 design in 2017.

Ok. Can one start his own lan server to get mp game going?
BrianRubin Jul 31, 2017 @ 7:19am 
Nope, it's their shared server.
athelasloraiel Jul 31, 2017 @ 1:45pm 
Ok but is mp working?
BrianRubin Jul 31, 2017 @ 2:00pm 
Er.......it's an MMO, it's entirely multiplayer. They just run the server, you can't run your own.
athelasloraiel Jul 31, 2017 @ 2:07pm 
ok, I thought its just an image of former MMO, like SP experience to test play. Didnt know its fully functional.

thnx

Oh yeah, it's run by fans, similarly to Star Wars Galaxies.
