IMPORTANT NOTE This guide is for setting up the client to play. If you already have a client from Sunset you only need the launcher. If you do not have the client then you only need to download the client since it has the launcher already. • ORIGINAL GAME DISCS WILL NOT WORK AGAIN ORIGINAL GAME DISCS WILL NOT WORK • The Login Account and Forum Account are separate in order to play VGO you need a Login Account, the forum is only for the forums
If you're a visual learner I've put together a video tutorial to supplement the written instructions.
1 - Create a Login Account
This account is used to log into the server in-game. This is not the same as a forum account!
2. Download Client
Download the sunset client (original discs do not work). This download also contains the VGO launcher.
2.5 - Download Launcher (Optional)
YOU ONLY NEED THIS IF YOU ALREADY HAVE THE CLIENT FROM SUNSET IF NOT THEN SKIP
Download the launcher and extract it to the root folder of Vanguard.
After you have extracted it verify you have the following three files in the folder.
If you already have the launcher verify it say's version 22.214.171.124 or higher at the bottom left. If it does not, download the launcher from the link above.
3 - Unblock Client .exe
VERY IMPORTANT YOU DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP
Once you have finished downloading the client before you extract be sure to right click on the zip file and select properties. If it has the Unblock Box, check it then hit apply/ok.
4 - Extract Client Files
You can now extract the client. This is the full client, not simply an installer, so chose where you want to put it (you can always move it later if you extract in the wrong place). It is HIGHLY reccommended that you DO NOT put your VGO folder in the Program Files folder. Doing so can cause issues when trying to run the game as those are protected folders.
5 - Client Folder Verification
Your Vanguard folder should now look like this:
6 - Start the Launcher
Double click on VGOEmuLauncher.exe to start the launcher for the first time. You can also might want to set it as a desktop icon at this time.
7 - Configure the Launcher
Upon first use, the VGO launcher needs to search for the client .exe to connect your client to the emulator server. If you placed the launcher in the root vangaurd folder it should do this automatically and quickly. You only need to do this once.
Click OK on the box.
Client Found! go ahead and click Save
Accept the End-User License Agreement
This is where you enter your Login Account username/password (not your forum account)
You should now see New Telon in the server list, select it and hit play!
|• If you did not download the client but already have one in window mode verify|

|• If it is not then download the client here.|
8 - Character Creation
Now you want to select Create New Character.
Select your race/class and input the name you want (last name is optional).
Select either Isle of Dawn or your race's home town to start in.
Change your appearance to what you wish and hit finish.
Now you are in the game! Welcome home.
