Sim533 said... [REPLY]

You need to wait a bit more. It should load after some time... =P

SuperBen21 said... [REPLY]

Supersoradude said... [REPLY]

Dude, it loads amazingly well! (Even the log-in screen part!)

But of course, it is closed for now...

Crackers5. We have already posted about this yesterday and updated the post 5 hours ago.

Vanderdecken12 said... [REPLY]

20 clicks for you, though, anyway.

So EVERYONE follow the link Crackers just posted and complete the new challenge!

crackers5 said... [REPLY]

Oh, I rarely check for edits to old posts, lol. :P Thanks anyway. :D

BTW, could I go ahead and redeem all my clicks on my LEGO Club Magazine Module, please?

Vanderdecken12 said... [REPLY]

Your clicks have been given.

Gatanui said... [REPLY]

I am very happy for everybody who got their key today. :) Now the universe will be more crowded. :P

andrew said... [REPLY]

I got the key!!!

Supersoradude said... [REPLY]

Congrats, andrew! :D

SuperBen21 said... [REPLY]

Hope you like it! :)

Supersoradude said... [REPLY]

Actually, take that back -
I think this would look better:

caspar347 said... [REPLY]

Yes!!!Yes!!!YES!!!I fianally got one!!!

Spacedude said... [REPLY]

I had no idea this blog was here...

Hey, I know some people here, like... uh... well, yeah.

Anyway, I'm in the Beta!

Vanderdecken12 said... [REPLY]

Cool, Spacedude, welcome. Hope you enjoy it :-)

Austin said... [REPLY]

YESSSSSSSSSS! I GOT IT!
I have not made my account yet though. Before I do, I have 1 question... can you make your Lego Universe Username different than your MLN? I am happy i you can cuz, like I said before, I dont like my MLN username :)

PS: Oh, and what are the system requirements?

Vanderdecken12 said... [REPLY]

System requirement are basically just that you have a good PC (not a mac).

You get to pick your LU username when you create your LU minifig. But you have to use your old LEGO account to sign in.

B-man8397 said... [REPLY]

Yes!!! I'm a beta tester! But it is taking too long to download.

SuperBen21 said... [REPLY]

I figuared out that it will take my internet about 14 hours to download :(

I hope to do it tonight! :)

Wooton said... [REPLY]

*sigh* I hope my computer gets fixed soon... it keeps rebooting and I cant really download anything

Eragon.Saphira said... [REPLY]

I GOT AN ACTIVATION KEY!!! :-)

Eragon.Saphira said... [REPLY]

WHAT!?! No Mac version? AAAGH!!
Anyone else annoyed that LEGO didn't think about Mac users?

Vanderdecken12 said... [REPLY]

Actually, they thought about you long and hard, but decided Mac people weren't worth it ;-)

They're, from what I heard, currently looking into making the final version Mac-compatible.

Eragon.Saphira said... [REPLY]

Very funny Vanderdecken12 :-)
Its a good thing we have a PC in the house!

crackers5 said... [REPLY]

I would be SO happy if they did so.

"Not available for the Mac operating system at the time."

Supersoradude said... [REPLY]

@All Mac users: Check out VMware.com.
I used it to download and run LU up to the log in screen.
It worked great!

But the native incompatability is horridly annoying, I'm sure the game would work superbly on Macs.
SSD~
@Vanderdecken: We had an... Eh, bumpy evening. I'm gonna have to add that form tomorrow.
And don't worry, I'll give full credit. :)

Vanderdecken12 said... [REPLY]

Wow, it's not cheap, though...

MapleMushy said... [REPLY]

GAHHHH NOT AGAIN. I emailed lego about it and when they send ot again. im so sad face

Sim533 said... [REPLY]

Welcome Spacedude, to the blog!

The second one is better, SSD.


MapleMushy, please send them the mail, they would send it you then.

Delta 38 said... [REPLY]

Hello everyone!
I removed myself from the authors list mainly because I didn't have time to make new posts.
I haven't been on MLN for a while, so I probably won't respond on there.
I changed my name back for privacy. Anyway... I got a beta invite at last! The problem is the times when I can play at are a bit inconvenient.

It's too bad about the Mac incompatibility at the moment. I'll download it soon.

Sim533 said... [REPLY]

Welcome back, Delta38/Riverle. I'm so mad that you removed yourself from the list. But that's your choice. You may ask again to be on the list any time...

Connor said... [REPLY]

I just gotit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But it doesn't say in my time zone when I can play.

Anonymous said... [REPLY]

Guys it loads but when I click sign in it always tells me to try again in a few minutes.....

Supersoradude said... [REPLY]

@Vanderdecken and Sim: We all know a Mac native version would be better.
So a Windows emulator is all us Mac heads have for now. =P

(VMware DOES offer a 30 day trial...)

There's also something called "VirtualBox" (virtualbox.com, I think), and it's free.
But I'm not sure how well it works.

And don't forget Bootcamp. For those of you with 2009 Leopard/Snow Leopard iMacs, just go to Applications/Utilities. There's a Bootcamp setup wizard which should work.

Then you just restart the Mac and boot Windows.

But we have 64 bit, so I don't know how well it works. (Since it wouldn't let us install it.)

But with 32 bit versions it's supposed to work fine. :)

I hope they release a Mac version soon...

Who's logging on at 10? (Opening time.)
SSD~

Supersoradude said... [REPLY]

Arg, I need some help Vanderdecken. :)

I can't embed the form. =P (And I'm having a hard tie locating the form code in the Web Inspector too.)

Can you give me the code, or would it just be better if I gave a link to sign up for the form?
(Sorry if I sound rude here. XD)
SSD~

Wooton said... [REPLY]

just figure out the time in your zone: 11 EST = 10 central, 9 mountain, 8 pacific

Sim533 said... [REPLY]

Superben21. That's a way off topic and too long comment, sorry.

SSD. This is the link to the form. I can't post the code here, sorry. http://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?cfg=true&formkey=dGRPX0JLQXBjeXo1dGpyTVJOc0k4MVE6MA

But you could look here to the code http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml_frame_cols
Be sue to remove the attribute 'cols' and to remove the frame B and C.

Good luck.

SuperBen21 said... [REPLY]

It is awesome, have you gotten on sim533?

Sim533 said... [REPLY]

Yep, I got one.. I will start in some weeks. I couldn't start faster...

SuperBen21 said... [REPLY]

cool, after the 12 hour download I finally got it working but its not that good cas of my slow internet :(

Maby I could use my brothers laptop :)

Sim533 said... [REPLY]

Let me know if you test it by using your brothers laptop. But probably you need to repatch that computer :(

Eragon.Saphira said... [REPLY]

I downloaded LU onto my PC, but the opening hours pretty much means that either I have to skip school to get on, or wake up at 3am! This is a bit annoying...I hope they decide on better international hours soon.

Eragon.Saphira said... [REPLY]

Hey, somehow my name has ended up on the LU list twice, can you please remove one of them? Thanks

Sim533 said... [REPLY]

Vanderdecken12 would delete your name ASAP.

SuperBen21 said... [REPLY]

I don't think so, I just have a plain old computer :( I'll see if he lets me, he isn't always home so it would be hard to find a time that would work, but maby!

I'll ask him soon......

p.s. if mine doesn't start working better than I might re patch it.

crackers5 said... [REPLY]

Any news on Rank 11, or can you tell me if it's confirmed?

Sim533 said... [REPLY]

Superben21. I cross my fingers and I hope for you =P

Crackers5. Nothing new.

Gatanui said... [REPLY]

Bugefun, I added you as friend. :)

aadams2121 said... [REPLY]

Woopee!!!!!!! I finnaly got one!!!!!:) See you guys in the universe.

Chase said... [REPLY]

I got in my username is the same
-sponge6789

Spider880 said... [REPLY]

I got my key, but I'm having a problem downloading LU. During the middle of the download, I keep getting a message that says, "There was an error trying to patch: Unable to Connect to Server."

Then it gives me two options. Try Again or cancel. Try again does nothing, and cancel just quits the download making me restart again. Any advice on this?

Sim533 said... [REPLY]

Spider. There are still much problems in the beta version. Email the support of LU, they would help you.

Wagner. said... [REPLY]

I got the key. though i cannot connect to the world server or something like that. i couldn't play thursday. i tried to connect for a while... it didn't work at all.

spdier880 said... [REPLY]

Ok, LU works for me now. I had to uninstall it and then install it. I can't wait until I get to try it out tomorrow.

Delta 38 said... [REPLY]

Again, this is biased towards America/Europe. I generally can't try out Lego Universe until sundays because of time differences (sunday here equates to saturday in America).
Besides this, something that's a bit annoying is how you have to load everything before you can begin playing.

Anonymous said... [REPLY]

I made a mistake! My LU username is Riptide. Could you change it to that on the list?
JohnnyThunder2468

Wooton said... [REPLY]

yay! I finally got it set up! although when I tried to get out of the sign up screen it went blank (although the X and netdevil stuff was still there) and froze up... is this a normal problem?

Eragon.Saphira said... [REPLY]

I know how you feel Delta38. Where I live most of the times are either in the middle of the night to early mornings, or during the day when I'm at school. I'm hoping to get on LU sometime on Saturday (EST) because those hours are normal waking hours for me.
All LU Beta's should decide on a place to meet within LU on Saturday. What do you think? I haven't been on yet so I don't know a good place. If anyone else knows of somewhere we can meet...

CheshireCat150 said... [REPLY]

JohnnyThunder2468. No problem, we will fix it.

Wooton. That happened to me once. It was because LU was closed when I tried it. XD

Eragon.Saphira. That would be a good idea, but the problem is we aren't supposed to give out any information about LU. I would suggest to wait until you see how some of the features work. I'll keep a look out for you next play session. ;)

Delta 38 said... [REPLY]

I just had a thought...
With some of us being beta testers and/or alpha testers, does that mean we get to have some special features or something when the game is finalised?

It's probably too much to ask for, but I wished we could all have unlimited membership to Lego Universe. Since it's based on a subscription model (as far as we know), I probably can't get it.

Wooton said... [REPLY]

yeah, okay that explains it, I was doing the same thing. lol

Sim533 said... [REPLY]

Delta 38. It is unknown if we get 'items' or rewards for this.

andrew said... [REPLY]

I put Mrandrew1 on the list but my LU name is firedrake12. can you change it?

Delta 38 said... [REPLY]

Well, in half an hour or so, (or maybe one hour and a half if I miscalculated), I'll finally be able to play.
If I meet anyone in Lego Universe, I'll add them. =)

spider880 said... [REPLY]

I think we all should get together some day on LU. Hang out, battle Darklings, and ggo up the monument. I think this would be alot of fun. Of course, we'd have to set up a place, a date, and a time.

Sim533 said... [REPLY]

Yep, we should. But as we couldn't choose on which server we want to be, it would be confusing for some people.

For example, Spider880 says he is at the place, and Wooton also says he is there. But you couldn't see each other.

Gatanui said... [REPLY]

At Sim: I think there is only one server for beta testing.

spider880 said... [REPLY]

Yeah, I only think there's one server. If there's not, then we should all add eachother before we meet. I think you're always on the same server with your friends.

adams2121 said... [REPLY]

Hey guys,
If you're planning on having a little "get together, and play" day then, (If you don't mind) I'll join you, but you gotta let me know so I can plan on, being online that day, and time. (Of course I ALWAYS try to get on whenever I can) Vandurken, Sim533, or Bugefun SHOULD have my e-mail, soooo...... tell them to send it to me once you guys figure out what day, and time.


Delta38-This is just an assumtion, but I have a pretty good feeling that, IF Lego decides to, give us a "reward" for beta testing the game, the LEAST it's gonna be is a, badge on MLN, to show everyone that we beta tested it. I mean....they did it when MLN came out, and that, Racers game, BOTH of which were beta tested. That said you would "hope" that we would get something, because this is WAY bigger than those to combined. Anyway, I'm not trying to get your hopes up but, there's my idea.

CheshireCat150 said... [REPLY]

I think what Sim meant was that different countries have different internet servers. They might all be combined for LU, however, we are not sure.

Supersoradude said... [REPLY]

Nope, there's just one server - LEGO Universe Closed Beta.
However, the fact that the server name shows up in a drop-down list within the patcher suggests that more servers could come in the future.
Maybe a special betas-only server! That'd be cool!
SSD~
PS. Who check YouTube? A lot of dodos out there are breaking the DoS... :(

Sim533 said... [REPLY]

Yep, I believe it now. There is only one server.

Supersoradude said... [REPLY]

Grr. I make way to many typos on my iPod. =P
Anywho, don't forget the details on a pre-order are set to be released today!
SSD~

Sim533 said... [REPLY]

At eragon saphira and JT2468.
I changed it. Good luck and I see you at the universe!

Riverle said... [REPLY]

I'm just adding my name to the list.
I also decided to revert my name; it really defeats the purpose.
If anyone wants to add me on Lego Universe, just a note that I'll only be online on saturdays (american time). I may also be on during late thursdays.

Oh, and if there is a gathering in the future, someone should post the date and everything so I can know when to go on.

On another topic, is it possible to change your appearance?

spider880 said... [REPLY]

Supersoradude said... [REPLY]

@spider800: How exactly do you know that if we can't download the patcher until Thursday?
Or... can we?
SSD~

Sim533 said... [REPLY]

We can update it every hour every day.

Vanderdecken12 said... [REPLY]

They updated the major changes a bit early is all.

Supersoradude said... [REPLY]

There's a couple of things that seem new about it:

1. The version number no longer shows up "Not Available!" (or whatever it said before). It has an actual number now. =P
2. When you exit the game, it doesn't take you to the web browser to take a poll and whatnot. (This might be because the game isn't open now.)

SSD~
