NEWS:

MOUL PATIENCE

Patience has been the watchword for many of the fans waiting to get their email or download. Cyan moved to larger servers yesterday but the queue is still moving slowly to get folk in. Gondar on the forums had a great comment, “We are brutal on servers.. you guys bring them up, we bring them down. You bring them up again, we bring them down faster. You upgrade them, we bring them down in record time. Well, on the plus side neither side is just giving up, which keeps me happy about all of this Very Happy ”

Nalates has also provided information on how to shorten the download time.

MOULagain Download & Install
Nalates Urriah 2-9-2010

I’m still trying to get into MOULagain. I’ve got my sign up done. I got my email. (in gmail spam) I have downloaded and installed the launcher. Now the server is down (2/9 11:30 SLT). 😦

There is a confirmed story going around about reducing your download time by using your GameTap files or using a Torrent download. I have my GameTap files on CD. Some at GoW are running Torrents to provide the files. So there is something you can do while waiting.

RAWA and Cyan were deleting any conversations about Torrents on the MOUL forum. At some point they stopped that and began allowing discussion. As far as I know there are no links to Torrents on the MOUL forum. I have no confirmed Cyan stance on Torrents. Make your own decision. I suggest you have your anti-virus up to date when using Torrents. While you may be able to trust the seed, the rest of the connections may not be as trustworthy.

I have blogged a tiny bit about MOULagain. See: http://nalates.wordpress.com/

I also have collected instructions for how to install your GameTap or Torrent MOUL files at OpenUru.org. See: Downloading MOULagain – http://forums.openuru.org/viewtopic.php?p=2489#p2489

There are also some serious problems for nVidia users. See the OpenUru.org info for warnings and links. If you know of others, please post them.

I am hopeful we will get the section of OpenUru.org for Hypergrid, OSGrid, SL and other grids open this week. The section is for Myst/Uru Style builders and explorers. Those from other systems (Fallout, Team Fortress, Blue Mars) are welcome too. There is a section for those doing Myst/Uru Style RP like Devokan.

The Voice hopes to keep the connections between the Metaverse’s open and encourages visiting/linking between the worlds. I am looking for reporters who will be living/traveling in multiple places to advise on how to get to these places safely and provide visual media as well as reports to be posted here in The Voice. I can be contacted by IM or notecard in SL under DMom2K Darwin or in the MOUL forums under Dudemom_2000.
