|It's gonna be a tight news report today for two
reasons, a) I'm busy on the AO page right now and b) Readership is at an all time low.
not meaning to bitch, but it is low... depressingly low. So I'm back racking my
brain trying to get more content on the site. It's really just a matter of days now
I think.. if the AO page takes off well, it could do the trick, plus the columns coming
and the new comic... I hope to draw and maintain a fanbase. I'm always looking for
feedback on what you think would help us make this page even cooler. Any ideas?
I'll be back tomorrow morning or some time tonight with a full report hopefully,
and hopefully with some good news. Hang in there.

AO GOES LIVE
|After a really really (not) cool End of Beta last
night, the game seems to be (just maybe) back on it's feet and headed off into Retail.
This was the message of the day as displayed on the log in
servers are now up and we are live!
Go to http://register.funcom.com/
register your CD key.
A couple of important things before
you start to play:
Some of you have experienced problems with files being corrupted after patching. We have
reproduced the problem internally, and tracked it back to the 11.1.exe patch. If you
have this .exe patch stored on your local PC please delete it. The 11.1.exe patch was
created for use during the beta, and will no longer work properly.
Faulty error message
The first time you try to connect to the Anarchy server after installing the game you will
get an error message: "Error connecting to server:
"The dimensionfile does not correctly reflect the server-version. Please contact
email@example.com so they can fix the problem"
Just click "ok" in the dialogue box, and try
to login again. This time it will work as it should. Sorry about the inconvenience.
You will be able to read news about uptime, and other
information at our community site at http://community.anarchy-online.com
There is some concern right now over Funcom's lack of the
security symbol on their registration setup, but as of yet, no word from them. I
even went as far as to email them to prompt them to explain this on their board,but I
doubt I am the first to have done so and the bottomline is it seems to have been to no
avail. We'll keep ya posted on that.
If you click on our AO page right now you will see the
intro page to the site that leads... nowhere, but at least you can see for certain that
it is actually being worked on.
