I updated my email address as the one on the site I haven't used in years, and I sent Beamer an email regarding my account information as I couldn't find it.

Boy, oh boy, oh boy! I tried to log in today and ran into winsock errors. From previous messages I assume that the server is down and I'll try again later.

you need the 1.995a beta client to connect -- the old 1.994 client does not work anymore. have beamer e-mail it to you

No word from Beamer yet on getting the beta client or my old login information. Been itching to play since I learned this is back up.

Same here. Of course, I only emailed yesterday. What's a bit more of a wait when I've been waiting so long already. Though I do have my account information--looking to get the new client and address though.

Is Emp still up? I've not heard from Beamer yet on the updated client.

For anyone else interested ...here is the link info..for software.. the world address is aux.irealms.com
Use this link to download the game client
Also download the latest exe from here and replace the exe.
Some things are not working and will crash the server. Also some issues with stomping grounds and pandemonium. Pandemonium will crash the game on entry to a battle. Should be fixed soon if not already. List of issues follows
Not functional (and will likely drop server if attempted):
-Create new character
-Send group coop email
-Send individual coop email
-Delete coop email
-Create or reply to message post
-get map (mobile client only)
-save map (mobile client only)
Thanks and have fun

Much thanks to SirDie for the insightful message! Once updating to the new client and changing the world address, I wasn't able to play Empiriana from my Win10 machine. I even fiddled a bit with compatibility settings but continued to get a Direct Draw message from the client. I ensured I was using the latest drivers from NVIDIA; but, that didn't help either. I powered up VirtualBox with a clean Windows XP image. I shared a drive that had the Emp files and after messing with settings for a while, was able to successfully play Emp in full-screen within VirtualBox. I even ran into SirDie briefly while on!
Again, I'm quite happy to see Emp back online again and offer my assistance and financial support to anything that may be needed.
