This game has a similar problem to the old Virtual World games:
Its server was built on a Unix Macintosh platform, whose code and binaries were both lost. There was a project to reproduce the server 20 years ago that ended up floundering with no progress made, in part due to the server producing binary chunks of client state that had to be loaded for the game to initiialize. Interestingly the game was actually peer to peer once running, only the initial client authentication and player state were stored on the server, and players were then notified of each other's addresses with the first player in a region becoming the host for that area. This resulted in all the expected rampant cheating and Denial of Service, and is part of what lead to the eventual shutdown of Dark Sun Online around the time Ultima Online was coming out.

Glad to see interest in this here in the comments! I'll try to look for server files or something, the longer we wait the less chance we have of recovering *some* way to play this game again.

modifying ip connect in tenaddr to local machine ip 127.0.0.1 wont work either. need something or someone to have something else to actually host.

tenaddr is file to modify to change how it connects. even still i get cannot connect. whats the likelyhood someone is hosting private server for this.

Ten.net has been shut down since 1998. This game won't run without it.

The Mdark.exe file doesn't run under current version of Windows 7 and no previous version of windows compatibility program (all the way back to Windows 95) will run it either.
How are these files suppose to work? Under Dosbox, it simply states it's a 16-Bit Windows file, so no luck there either. Has anyone been able to run these files successfully?
