[Fireworks seemed appropriate for today!]

If you are playing The Imperial Realm::Miranda this weekend, please fill out this short anonymous survey when you're done. It should only take a couple of minutes.


After you start the client once patching is complete, at the bottom of the login screen it should say Version

Status Updates

If there are any problems or news about the test, I'll be posting that first on twitter then here.


If you experience a crash, please let the Lair Crash Reporter submit the crash report. I've already fixed one crash from the reports submitted earlier this week.

For non-crash problems there is an in-game bug reporting tool, just hit Ctrl-B at any time. If you prefer, you can email me (that's my email at the top of this post) or add a commment below. I'll be doing my best to keep an eye on things this weekend.

Friday Evening Update

I played Miranda tonight with people from the UK, France, Canada and Hungary. The first trans-Atlantic players. Overall the game was a bit crashy - but that was to be expected. Luckily it was more client crashes than server crashes. I'll be looking at all those crash reports this week as well as the bug reports people are sending in.

Tip: The chat box sometimes won't accept typing. If that happens, click the arrow to minimize the box, then restore it and click on the text box to type.

Tip: There is a list of the keyboard controls here

Hey szalami1, you may have gotten in while I was testing things if so, I'm sorry but I wiped the DB last night when I set up the server. You should still be able to use the secret lair code to create an account, or email me and I'll send you another.

That explains that. I had a similar experience to Szalami1. I registered with the secret lair code and then closed the tab without writing it down because, you know, it's expended now ^^

I thought I'd be saved by the autofill if I reinstalled the game (because it did indeed autofill the secret lair code the first time) but that didn't happen this time. Alas.

I still really want to play and test.

First impressions are pretty darn good. Map is nice and massive, units behave as you expect them to. Sure there are quite a few crashes, but that's fine for a first playtest like this.

I do want to repeat 1 request I also made in the other blog post.
I strong recommend to start up a discord channel. It's a great way for the community to get into contact with one another and during a phase of testing to set up sessions and groups to play together with.

Oh shit son, apparently I copied the code into a text file and then forgot to save that, but left the editor open. Miranda here I come!

Hey, When I try to log in, I keep getting kicked back to the login screen with no error. Any ideas on what i should try?

Okay, so I've played a little and logged out, now I cannot log back in. It goes to connect and waits on connecting for a while, then dumps me back to the login screen. Oddly enough, it can tell if I put in a wrong password, so it's connected to something.

Great first impressions for this great game. Firstly i only had around 4 - 6 crashes, i was able to build every building and unit they all seemed to work great but the missile silo(which you already know). It was great for a first public test, i am strongly against discord i think it is a buggy client that allot of people i know have mic issues and just running issues. If you are to setup a talk channel as i have said before teamspeak in my opinion is the way to go. Hope to see you Rob and anyone else on the battlefield tonight! :)

Hi Alator/BeatCrazed for some reason the server wasn't letting anyone connect. I've given it a kick - and it appears to be working now.

I'll look into Discord/Teamspeak. At least for this first test I'd like to use the game's chat if that's all right.
