Hi anybody that's out there. I am new to this and I am finding it confusing on how to install this Shard.I am playing on Gehn Shard at the moment because that was really simple to install but I want to be able to play some of the fan ages if they are still about. Any help would be great.

Welcome! In order to play the user ages, you might try the Deep Island version of the game, where you will find most

Welcome! You will find access to Fan Ages in various places on Gehn. I'd suggest checking out the Nexus, and visiting the neighborhood too.

Edit: Oops, I misread what you were asking. Listen to the others in this thread. :p

I have looked in that thread and all it does is confuse me even more. I have URU:CC on steam and I have MOULa (with no account ATM). Still frustratingly confuse.

Those threads are step-by-step instructions for what to do. We'll all try to help you if you are stuck, but we need you to formulate a concrete question, telling us which part of the instructions confuse you. There's no hope in us guessing what is happening on your side :)

I think what I am worried about most is that I am using Windows 10 and it says Windows 7 is prefered. Or will I be fine?

Edit: also where would I find my URU:CC .exe file I am not a programmer and I literally have no idea what I am doing.

Hello OnlyOnePlaying,

if you worry with Windows 10, worry not!

For Deep Island Shard install URU:CC and then apply the patch

Here's how I've just proceeded today (I realized I didn't reinstall the shard since a whole year...): My screenshots are taken from a French Canadian version of Windows 10 but it shouldn't be that hard to follow...

Step 1: Install a fresh copy of URU:CC, if you have space, keep a backup copy on your system. URU:CC (GOG.com version) weights 2.45 Gb. Make sure to put it far away from C:\Program Files\

Step 2: Simply rename your folder so you can easily identify it

Step 3: Download and unzip the file di-patcher, copy all four files in the unzip folder
Show Spoiler

Step 4: Paste them in your game folder (see Step 2) and overwrite old files if asked
Show Spoiler

Step 5: (tricky one), click one time on uru.exe, go in the upper tab, make your way through different selections to reach a window looking like the one giving you choices of compatible OS. Choose WIndows 7 and on the next windows (not shown here), make sure to test it then click close to set it to "Windows 7 compatibility mode", make sure to select also "Run as Administrator"

Step 6: Enter your credentials and wait for the download and install process to finish it. On High Speed Fibre Internet bandwith, it takes less than 5 minutes.

Create your avatar & fiddle with Graphic/Sound Settings, you can create up to 5 avatars. There are other additional steps (adding Myst End of Ages, Crowthistle, etc.) but this is more advanced stuff.
Make a shortcut of uru.exe, put it where it suits you the most, and start the game from that shortcut.
