Welcome to the Net-7 Entertainment EnB Emulator.
To get you going you will need to download the Game Client (Earth & Beyond Client) from the Download page. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
main tab/downloads on far left
Once you have installed that you will need to download the Net-7 Launcher (Net-7 Unified Installer), also from the download page.
Those are the only 2 files needed to play the game.If you have original disk for client that will work also instead of the downloadable one.
Right click the net-7 unified launcher you downloaded and run as admin.
If you hit a unhandled exception screen just click continue.
Once you have installed the above 2 downloads you will need to run the "Earth & Beyond Configuration" found in your start menu under "EA GAMES/Earth and Beyond".
Make sure to compare to the secondary Configuration "net7config" located a little farther down in same folder or you may crash on password accept or even have issues with full screen play.
This will set your Graphics and sound settings.
Now run the Net7 software "LaunchNet7", which should be on your desktop.
Net7 will update your game software to the latest version.
The Launcher may restart several times during this process.
Once the update is complete, you will be presented with he Net7 Launcher Screen.
There is a "Online/Offline" indicator under the server name and if this reads "ONLINE" press the play button to start the game.
Make sure the host reads (sunrise.net-7.org) and local ip has your ip #number in it.
The first time you run the game you will be asked to install a certificate. Please accept this and let it install.

Note: In some cases and i have seen a few.
If you get a inv 300 error try uninstalling your antivirus even if it looks ok when you check the settings to make the initial connection to our server, then you should be able to re-install it with no additional problems.
Verify that the user has NTFS security permissions to write to the Windows and/or Temp directories. If the user does not have access to the Windows and/or Temp directories, then the 'Could not initialize installation (CRC)' error message may be displayed.
Re-run the installation after modifying the security permissions for the user with the Windows and/or Temp directories.
Fly safe and have fun.
