  1. Hi It is unlikely that I am the right person for this, but just to confirm when you click say tools > enbconfig on the launcher, the config tool doesn't load for you? I only ask the above because for me it loads fine, so long as the following conditions are met: E&bconfig.exe has compatibility options of WindowsXP SP2 with Admin privileges LaunchNet7.exe is launched with Admin privileges With the above conditions met, the tool loads as expected from the launcher. I am not sure about the Character Creator tool as I do not use it, but I would guess that it should work if LaunchNet7.exe is loaded as Admin. Sorry if this is not the help you were wanting for this query, but perhaps it may help the thought process more since you like the code stuff 🙂 -FlyingFireTruck
  2. Hi But have you registered a game account within your net-7.org portal account? You can have 9 game accounts tied to one portal account, just for your information. -FlyingFireTruck
  3. Hi Everybody! I have noticed as of late there are repeat questions popping up that have (usually) simple solutions, so i have decided to compile a bit of a mini guide with some troubleshooting at the bottom section to hopefully aid those who might be struggling to get into the game. I understand that for many veterans this whole post might seem a waste of time, but if it can help at least one person out, then i will be happy 😀 I have written the below with the assumption that majority of people know how to open properties on a file, and general navigation within file explorer/Windows. I will also keep adding to this topic should there be something new crop up, or something that i have missed. Feel free to contribute too if there is something else not listed. The jump point for this guide is that you have done the following: Installed the game client Installed the Net7 installer Registered not only a forum account, but a game account via the Net7 portal -FlyingFireTruck You’ve installed both the client and the patch, but what settings need changing/configuring for everything to work as expected? Set compatibility for the LaunchNet7.exe as the following: Set compatibility for the configuration tool (default location: C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Earth & Beyond\EBCONFIG) as the following: Now launch the configuration tool to set desired screen resolution and modes: Running the launcher for first time First launch will download any update files, and might reload itself between updates depending on current patch level. When it has completed this process, you will want your launcher to look as follows: · Make sure the client is pointing to the correct directory and file. If everything was installed to default location, it will match the above in the picture – If non-default location installed then locate the client.exe file Make sure all 4 option boxes are checked Make sure the local IP setting is your actual local IP Woo I am in the game! But everything looks blurry and low resolution? At the top of the screen, click the following: Now change to desired options, or for majority of people the following settings are perfect: Note: you do not need to adjust gamma control unless absolutely necessary. Troubleshooting Issue: I load into the client but get INV-300 when attempting to log in Possible solution/s: You might have local cert checked on the launcher, uncheck it There could be a certificate error on server side, which as a temporary solution can be gotten around by making an internet properties adjustment by unchecking the highlighted line below, but better for system security to simply wait for the back-end fix: Issue: I am in the game but gating and transitioning between areas stalls out on galaxy map Possible solution/s: Check to see if all 4 boxes are checked on the launcher, specifically the prototype reorder. Is you local network wireless? - Although this seems like a small thing, it can make a big difference in this game. If at all possible run E&B Emu on a wired connection. Try the use of [/packetopt on] command. This is a 'shot in the dark' solution, some have had better success than others. If a VPN user, have you tried with/without using it? Issue: Server failed to respond to login attempt when clicking [Play] button Possible solution/s: Check your local IP address on the launchpad is your actual IP for your local machine Issue: How do i move a client window around when set to windowed mode? Possible solution/s: Move your mouse cursor to the task bar where the client is running and let it aero-peek. Now right click the peek window and select move, like shown below. You can also use [ALT+SPACE] to trigger this menu to pop top left of client window, like below: Issue: I have multiple monitors but when i move a client window to the left of the main screen, i cannot interact with it. Possible solution/s: There is no real solution that i am aware of as this has to do with negative screen coordinates, in which a secondary monitor when configured to the left of the main one has this. For most people having the secondary monitor to the right of the main works better. *If there is a solution that works perfectly for this, please let me know in replies!
  4. Please provide a screenshot of the point of failure where it produces an error on screen. Was the Win11 install done by yourself with default options or was anything edited to the install process? -FFT
  5. Hi The process hasn't changed thankfully for Win11, but I will cover it here for you so you don't need to search. The illustrated images are from Win10 but the process remains the same. Navigate to where the game's config is located at, by default it would be C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Earth & Beyond\EBCONFIG Now locate E&BConfig.exe, looks like this: Open up the file's properties via right click, click on the compatibility tab and set the following options: Click Apply and OK to save this. Now simply double click this file to run it, and set your desired screen options, remembering to apply them when done. Hope that helps -FFT
  6. Hi A temporary solution to the INV-300 error that usually works is to navigate to your internet properties, and uncheck the highlighted setting in the below image: Note that it does suggest a restart to take effect. For general security though don't leave this setting unchecked any longer than you have to. -FFT
  7. Hi Please try the following file I have packaged for you, from my install. Drop it into your "..\Net-7\bin" folder overwriting old one. Note that this isn't the best way to fix this problem, but it may get you in the game faster 😀 net7proxy If it still fails come back here and will rethink. -FFT
  8. Hi Unless I am misunderstanding your question, I think you might be overthinking this process. Simply open the Net7 launcher again to create another client instance. When it has launched you can aero peek the window on task bar, right click and move to desired location, like so: [Imagine a nice image here illustrating what i mean, but forum refuses to accept an upload for some reason. Error -200] -FFT
  9. Hi Client target is incorrect. Target is "..\Earth & Beyond\release\client.exe " and not the "..\Earth & Beyond New\e&b.exe" you have selected. But since you have a custom directory set up: "..\Earth & Beyond New\release\client.exe" should be your target. Hope that helps. -FFT
  10. They seem functional 🙂 Its same as what I have in place but wasn't sure whether to openly post etc. -FFT
  11. Hi I do have them uploaded, but I am unsure on what data transfer quotas are in place for where I have them stored. I am also concerned whether staff here would want me posting it whilst official download server is inaccessible currently? -FFT
  12. Hi Although as mentioned above you cannot currently login/play, you can get the installations ready for when patching can take place. You said you have both the client and Net7 installers already, so you can install both, just not update the Net7 launcher to get most recent needed files. So assuming you have done nothing so far, follow the below. Stage 1 - Run the client installation package (the big 1GB-ish package) Click [YES] on the first prompt Installer will begin At this point simply press [OK]. Your web browser will open up to try to direct you to Fileplanet, simply close the browser. File extraction will now take place for the installation Regular style installation will now take place, pressing [NEXT] to set any directory options (recommend leaving default). Recommend not placing desktop shortcut as it will never be needed Stage 2 - This will be the Net7 installer package you also said you had to hand. Run this executable and follow any prompts. It will eventually ask you whether or not you wish to update the client, at this point press [YES]. It will then update the client a good amount (but not the required amount) for you. When the installation has completed of Net7 you should see a new icon on desktop for it. Leave this for now as game server is locked for players as of writing this. Stage 3 - Now you need to set any graphical options for the client. The config tool will not run without some additional compatibility settings though, so navigate to the game folder where it installed (if default client installer options set, then: C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Earth & Beyond\EBCONFIG). Look for an executable called E&BConfig.exe, looks like the below. Right click this and select [PROPERTIES], then from within select the tab called [COMPATIBILITY] and set the following options: Finally simply [APPLY] these settings, then you can load the program up to set screen resolution etc. The final stages of this process is to actually load into the game via the Net7 icon on your desktop, but make sure you set your local ip to be accurate, and select the check boxes as shown below. When server is operational you should be able to login after all this, but the Net7 client will patch a few things too. If you are still stuck feel free to direct message me, or reply here. -FFT
  13. The mob may very well have those skills, in fact I'm sure those ones do thinking about it more. However the reason I mentioned graphics quality is that it can create pop in effects at times with the mobs yet targeting is still possible. Something seems a bit fishy here though still as even if the mob can cloak, the picture indicates an acquired target from the player, damage being inflicted but still no visual model. This could be answered by them having see cloak buff, but even with this shouldn't the ship be visible at this point? Another interesting question would be are there any instances where the mobs can actually fire from cloak whilst remaining cloaked? ? Either way, by now I'm sure this ship in question is long dead ? -FFT
  14. Another possibility is that you have not ramped up the graphical options within the game, so it will limit what is being rendered in favour of better performance. This seems that it might be the case here looking at the background objects from your picture. Within the game at the top click on options > graphics. From here just uncheck the one box, and slide all sliders to the right apart from gamma. Although this was useful way back when the game was new, with today's hardware nobody should need to run the game on lower than max settings ?. -FFT
  15. Hi When installing the client it will get to a point where you can click a browse button to choose where to install the client to. You can change directory of installation from there. Ive been trying to add an image here to show you exactly where, but the forum keeps failing to accept the upload with error -200 for some reason, so hopefully the above is enough explanation ? -FFT
  16. Hi LukeSBE Out of interest what is your networking at home, are you on WiFi on a wired connection to your router? -FFT
  17. Hi Tulkas Camping of this particular mob has been an ongoing thing for a long time now, i agree. But there is a sense of achievement when you finally get to kill it, however it is frustrating when somebody has the spawn locked down to the point where nobody else can. Your suggestions are interesting and i think they have all been talked about before amongst people i know that play/used to play. 1. This would need a lot of thinking and work to implement in such a way that the mobs that drop the required comps to manufacture are not camped out like the child is. 2. This is probably the most feasible route of change, given that it could be tied to a mission. 3. How would you change players who have hoarded this item already, as you cant just take all but one away from them. But yes it would still be a locked down spawn anyway. On a side note though, I've never understood why this reactor is so desired. Tang's Vigor is so much better for overall power, and the other buffs the Shooting Star gives are usually achieved with other items that are easily player made and exceed the reactor's buff anyway. Then again I'm not here to tell anyone how to play or have fun, so I will leave the decision up to you and others ?. -FFT
  18. Just to visualize what Woodstock has typed out, your compatibility options for the configuration tool should be as follows: If you have installed everything with default paths, this executable is found at: C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Earth & Beyond\EBCONFIG - right click it and select properties. -FFT
  19. Calling something foolish and worthless when it has worked for the masses but doesn't work for you, specially when people are trying to help isn't a great start. So lets replicate what you are claiming on a fresh Windows 10 22H2 install. Running the executable (click Yes) After this initialization, you will be presented with the following: At this point simply press the big OK button in the middle. A browser page will open to Fileplanet, literally close it down immediately as you don't need anything from it. Extraction of install files will then commence. Followed by a usual installation sequence, recommend installing in default directory. Recommend no placing shortcut on desktop as it is not used. From this point run the Net7 installer as mentioned. This will then patch the client and install the software required to run the game. However there is some configuration advised prior to launched which Yeti has covered above. This is not a definitive cover-all-aspects guide to install, as this covers what would be considered a normal sequence of installation process. If you still fail to install then provide more information about your computer configuration, or as you say wait for the installer CDRoms that you have ordered, even though this shouldn't have been at all necessary to do. -FFT
  20. Hi, Please right click E&BConfig.exe, click properties, set the following options under compatibility tab and click apply to save. If done correctly it should allow you to load the config up and set desired display options. Regards -FFT
  21. Hi This sounds very much like a similar issue a friend of mine was experiencing (Wiz) yesterday that i was checking on for her. Four accounts in testing, and four brand new characters were created to see if problem was with account or with the character itself. The characters made were called Glassone[1], Glasstwo[2], Glassthree[3] and Glassfour[4]. Upon all characters logging in, immediately tried using [1] to /invite [2]. The result was strait away after the /invite command was used [1] lost sync to server entirely, but on [4] it received an invite from [3]. [2] never received an invite but didnt seem to have truely landed as although character was movable within the starbase, he couldnt see any other characters or interact with anything much like [1] after he tried inviting [2], so again a desync. [3] and [4] sucessfully formed a group even though the /invite command came from [1]. Upon trying to leave the starbase only [4] actually made it outside with [3] just sitting on map screen. A support ticket regarding this issue has been sent in, but seems a fair few people are experiencing oddities that hopefully a server restart will fix as the characters are unplayable, as you have found out yourself. Regards -FFT
  22. Hi Riz, Please try the below settings for the compatibility for E&BConfig.exe, then launch it and set desired display options. If it still doesnt work feel free to report back here ? Regards -FFT
  23. Hi I'm not sure if this has been reported in before, but I noticed when browsing Earth vendors that the level 8 Most Sexy Class G laser has conflicting information. Description suggests it has +repair equipment skill, but the effect information on right side shows +equipment engineering. The level 7 version of this beam has description and effect for +repair equipment, which leads me to think the level 8 has incorrect effect assigned. Bug tracker loads a white page so thought would share the finding here. Regards -FFT
  24. There is something you could try if willing. A while ago a friend of mine stuck with mobile only data access could get to character login side of things, but could never progress the handoff to the world server. It would just hang forever. A solution to this was to use a VPN and it worked fine for a single client. The VPN that got used was Proton (free). He was able to actually log in and participate in a raid with no latency issues. Not sure if this will be a solution for you, and it depends how much you want to play really whether you want to go down this route. Regards -FFT
  25. Sorry i should have mentioned that information ? I would say over last 30 days, this is 1-6 clients at about 2-4 hours per day average. Regards -FFT
