Here's a basic overview on the process on installing and starting up the game. It's not exactly complicated, but it's always nice to have a handy guide.

  • Installation

    This installer currently provides three seperate programs. Don't worry, the programs you want to install is a choice for you to make.

    • Game Client: You will essentially need this program to play the game.
    • Music Player: Ever wanted to listen to the game's music library? You can launch the music through this compact player.
    • Map Editor: An external map editor that somewhat mimics the map editor in PMU.

      • First you will want to click on the fancy green "Download installer" button at the upper corner site. A window mentioning "Installer.exe" should pop up afterwards. The pop up should have a saving option, click it once you find it. Open "Installer.exe" once that is finish downloading.


        You've got through the installation, now to get the game up and running.
