To start playing the game you don’t
need to pay for registration or for the client software.
All you need to do is follow the simple registration steps on the
website. Setting up, running the client and creating your first
character should take no longer than about 20 minutes. Then you
can get straight into playing the world of AWplanet!
If you want to create
another character but you already have an account on the website,
you do not need to register another account on the website,
you are able to create another character using the same account.
1. Check Your Internet Connection
To enter the game you must have direct internet connection
(without proxy server). Connection method doesn't depend on your
browser settings — game client will always connect directly.
If you are connecting
through an ordinary internet provider, then you will probably
have no problems because you will have a direct connection.
However, if you are in a corporate environment e.g. school,
work, you will probably have access to the internet through
a proxy server.
If you are using a firewall program (or you are in
a LAN environment) then you may need to open one of the following
ports to access the game: 21 (FTP), 80 (HTTP) or 2158.
2. Create Your Account
Before you start playing the game, you must register
an account on the website www.awplanet.com.

installer. Save it into a new directory (e.g. «c:\awplanet\»). All
files that you download from our website www.awplanet.com
are free from viruses and trojan programs.
Next launch the installation program. It will automatically
download all the necessary files. The total required space is about
2Mb. The game client will automatically create a shortcut to the
game client on your desktop and it will automatically launch the
game client, from there you will be able to create your character.
5. Create Your First Character
enter the game, enter name and password of your account, and then
push the «New Character» button. This will take you to the character
creation screen where you can customize your character with a name,
gender, height, hairstyle, skin colour and colours of your clothes.
Later in the development of your character you will be able to acquire
clothes, armor and weapons to further change your character's appearance.
You cannot change the name
of your character. You can only set the name of your character
at the character creation screen. So be very responsible when
choosing your name. The name that you choose will be the name
that all other players see.
Depending on your choice of character you will get
starting bonuses that increase some attributes (e.g. the tallest
character will gain an additional strength and dexterity levels).
By clicking a radio button «I Accept Terms and Conditions»
confirm your agreement with rules for the game community. Now press
the «Create Character» button and you may start playing the game!
6. Enter the Game
After creating your character you are automatically
logged into the game. To log back into the game after you have closed
the client, launch the program awclient.exe,
enter your account name and password and choose your character.
After that the game will load your character and put you back to
the same place you were at when you last exited the AWplanet.
extra security we recommend that you use the ingame IP protection.
It means that access to your account will only be accessible from
the IP address that you choose. To use this feature, turn on IP
protection from the game client.
Take into account that we automatically remove the
players who don’t login to the game for a long time. The minimal
period for the registration record storage is two weeks, but the
more you play the game, the longer this period becomes. So if you
are unable to play for any reasons, you are advised to login from
occasionally so that your record is not erased. If you want your
registration account not to be removed and be stored for a long
time, become a paid member.
If you want to transfer the game onto another computer,
you only need to copy two files, the awclient.exe
file and setup.dat file. After you have
copied these files to another computer, run awclient.exe. It will
automatically update your client with the latest files and your
game preferences will not be lost because they are stored in the
setup.dat file. Note — none of your account details are stored
on your computer, they are stored on the server, so your account
won't be lost if you delete these files.
