Just installed the game and got the "Unable to Connect to Global Server" error message too. I thought it was something I missed during the install, then I saw this. Hope it gets fixed this weekend so I can get into the game (fingers crossed).
I'm getting this error message when trying to download the Earth and Beyond Client file: "eandb_demo.exeport could not be saved, because the source file could not be read" I was able to download the Net-7 file just fine. Please let me know what I need to do to get it downloaded, I've been trying to get the EnB emulator installed all weekend! Thank you!
