The Matrix Online is back!

They did it! They finally did it! The Matrix Online now has a somewhat stable emulator that you can actually play. I’ve been keeping track of the different emulators for MXO and how they have been progressing since the server shutdown and this is by far the best. Having said that it’s still pretty damn broken. Combat doesn’t work, the character creation barely works and there’s not a lot to do besides /dance (Always be dancing). I will always have a special place in my heart for MXO and an emulator will never do it justice but I find this sort of thing fascinating. So take a journey with me as Pascual jacks in again!
 
     

 
 EDIT: I forgot to add the link to download this magic. Now since the time of recording they have made it a bit harder. For some reason they locked the forums and you have to request a account. If you still want in this site if the place to start MXO Source

Ryan needs to be informed, if he doesn't already know. Do it!

The Matrix Online wasn't very good..

Posted by Cameron

Isn't this the kind of thing SOE will be all over? I'm sure this violates all sorts of copyright/IP laws.

@Cameron: just rename it to the matricks online

I just recognized the irony of emulating The Matrix. That's some meta shit right there.

Actually they're emulating a simulation of The Matrix, this thing goes even deeper!
 
I'm surprised they brought out the emulator so soon, then again I didn't think they'd release it this broken. Still, it's a pretty cool novelty, I can't wait to see it once it's fixed properly.

I was thinking the same thing, It is a failed MMO nothing special. 
And sure Giantbomb had a video feature and that is why everyone is really pumped about this but exactly how many of you are even going to play this ?

I never played the original release, but I would totally log on to this and jump on to roof tops if it lets me.

No.  It's spaghetti with a spicy meat sauce.

Props to those fans, crazy dedication right there.

Posted by MarkWahlberg

Didn't it turn out that the whole system cycled through death and rebirth? Oh well. No one ever makes the first jump.

Posted by wrathofconn

So what exactly is it emulating? It's obvious that it doesn't know how to use parts of the game client, but I'm not familiar with the concept of emulation for PC games. Is it just creating a framework for accessing things on the disk?

Your statement has nullified any statement I've ever stated. You win.
Posted by Matt

Some very wise GiantBomb member reminded me that I didn't post the link to the emulator. I've since rectified this problem and all the info can be found in the first post.

No! Let that beautiful ending be what is remembered, not whatever this... monstrosity is!

I approve of this Pascual reboot.
The only bullet point you need:

  • /dance emulation 100% = SHIP IT.

My feelings exactly
Posted by ISuperGamerI

Rofl nice video I laughed at the entire thing and it looks cool, but I never played the game when it got released.

yeah it is emulating the SOE servers (the client will be modded to connect to the emulated ones ip) will most like consist mainly of a database with huge amounts of data, I've fool with a wow emulator before that shit is buggy but I was able to use GM commands to spawn gear and mobs etc for great lowls for about 2hr >.> (none of the bosses really work right so just tank and spank for one then lvl to 100 and 1 shot things)
Posted by Dtat

Great.....? I guess it's good for the people who were really into the community. But that game looked terrible.

Posted by Aleryn

Your enthusiasm is really commendable, and that's got to be really hellish to emulate on the coders part.  Yeah would be funny to hear the reaction of the guys on the Bombcast.  Reminds me of messing with an Ultima Online emulator years ago.  Was incredible to even get the engine running, online or not.

Couldn't SOE just release all the code for MXO, what are they gaining by holding onto it?

Posted by Jams

Now they just need to release a tabula rasa emulator and I'll be good

Posted by SpacePenguin

The thing is they have started the scrip for the 4th and 5th movie so the matrix brand is proably gona be revived and that can only mean good thing for The Matrix Onlinee emulators
