If I'm not mistaken about your issue, there is a dimensions.txt where you can put 7500 for the port and localhost or 127.0.0.1 for the ip in the AppData/Local/Funcom/Anarchy Online/70dad3e6/Anarchy Online directory. Your launcher will connect you to the login server from there. As for me, I'm currently stuck on getting a user to log in... Despite the user successfully being created and me entering the credentials correctly, it keeps saying invalid password. I'm using the 18.8.19_EP2 client and the LoginEngine is loading the 18.8.11_EP2 client, so I suspect that either that is the issue or I actually need to download the actual cellao launcher you mentioned.

EDIT: I found the launcher, though for some reason the normal site isn't working for me... Luckily, the internet archive has our back and has it hosted right here. https://web.archive.org/web/20160126135700/http://nightlybuild.aocell.info:9090/job/CellAO-Launcher/lastBuild/artifact/CellAO-Launcher.zip I tried out my AO client with the launcher and now my LoginEngine isn't giving me the Invalid Password error, but rather it just says that the authentication failed.

EDIT2: I fixed it! I didn't need the 18.8.11_EP2 client after all; the launcher works. If anyone has any issues, pm me or reply to this thread and I'll see how I can help.

Hey,
Wondering if you guys could help me? I followed the video tutorial, which I realize is somewhat outdated, but I have managed to connect to the server and login to an account. but I am unable to complete character creation as I get an error on the LoginEngine Console: "CellCore System.IO.EndOfStreamException: Unable to read beyond the end of the stream."
Not sure if I have missed some crucial step somewhere?

any help is appreciated,
Thanks

EDIT: seems I can only name my character something short, else this error pops up, but the client seems to crash right after character creation.

- Visual equiping does NOT work, can't equip the starter items when making a char
- IP adding only works for like 10%
- Still no combat.. its been what? 10 years now?
- Only 10% of the nanos work
- Chatting does not work

Looks like its still the same as 6 years ago... It's such a shame to see this project not moving forward, ive been following it ever since it started, was hoping to have a playable emulator by now.

Please, share your solution.
I have the same issue - "invalid password. Authentication failed" with modified dimensions.txt, and just disconnect with launcher.
Tried EP1 and EP2, both latest versions from off. site (just because I couldn't find earlier versions).
Nor could I find latest (1.5.0+) source, to try to compile myself...
Please, help  :'(

Howdy everyone!

I'm sorry to hear about any issues with Phoenix version. Yes there are known issues with equipping .. for example you cannot equip baseball bats.. not sure why.

Also the compatible version right now is 18.8.18-EP2.. (other version may be compatibile but not tested).

Mind you this project has been in development for 6 years because its only worked on by a very small handful of less than part-time devs. That being said if you are familiar with AO's packet format (or are otherwise -very- comfortable diving through hex looking for patterns without much of a guide) please let us know.

In lieu of recent problems on Live AO (exploits galore) I've taken an interest again in working on CellAO. We'll be doing our best to get basic combat working.
