How to Start and how to log in:
You need to create a new grid, which wil take many steps to complete. The Startup.htm page shows you how to do this.
Usually you can just run the Help-Network Diagnostics and it will tell you what to do. And you can troubleshoot manually.
Now with Free Dynamic DNS! DreamWorld now supports multiple regions and has better diagnostics which will help you get to the Hypergrid more easily. It has a built-in, free Dynamic DNS system so your friends can find you easily by name on the Outworldz.net domain. I've seeded it with over 25,000 cool names but you can also choose your own grid name at any time. Just click the Advanced panel and click the DNS Name.
The zip file should be extracted into a new folder, then click Start.exe. Answer a few questions to create your first avatar and it is ready to go. Switch between Bullet, ODE and UbODE physics engines with just a click.
You can also create multiple regions, give them any name and make them any size, and if you are non-commercial, get a free Vivox voice account.
