First of all: Is the ExAkarra client to be used? I mean is it the successor for the original game?

Secondly where should I get it, because the installer I downloaded installed it fine, but when I run the game the Emperium Xenos updater doesn't update the game succesfully. It starts updating the same file over and over again. There is also a red X after the progress bar and after that says: Differs:-148162.

Thirdly: What is this AkarrianSouls? Another successor? And should I play it instead of ExAkarra?

I would appreciate any help very much!

Ask the updater question at Gorg's. Link is: http://www.emperium.webhop.net/

They are all different shards of the same game. Though, the code has been purchased and alot of work is being done. You can find more info at: www.akarra.us.to

There exists less than a half dozen of these shards, the most prominent being, from what I can tell:

Experium Xenos Akarra (ExAkarra)

Akarrian Soul (AS Akarra) (May be dead now... not sure)

Akarra Expansion (Akarra XP or AE)

There was a fourth prominent shard, Akarra Dojo, which decided to pass into the 'world hereafter' upon hearing of "Whispers in Akarra II" buying the source code.

Minor/dead/dying shards include: Echoes of Akarra, Akarrian Vagary, Project Phoenix

Whispers in Akarra II, or Whispers in Akarra A2 (the next version after where the old team stopped) depending upon who you ask, is better found at http://www.akarra.org/

There also exists an Oxeye Game Studios MORPG in development "Dawn of Daria" that you have probably found on this site. It is run by some of the former developers of the original Akarra. NONE of the original team runs any shards as far as I know... but I might be wrong there. The former developer Jellocube seems to work for A2, and it also uses the work of former-Akarra-developer Braiba from his dead shard Project Phoenix. (A sad death due to a dying one-man development team with a busy life.)

Thus, if you are looking for something along the same lines of the original Akarra, Daria is your best bet as it has most of the former staff and Akarra II isn't out yet while Daria does have an Alpha Test going. However, Daria's Alpha is loosing its users as anything more than a chat room since there are no sustained stats for characters. No levels, no attributes, no experience points -- just killing, trading, items, nice art and loveable pets. If you want something you'll play for more than a few hours, I recommend choosing one of the three prominent shards after briefly looking at Daria's progress and bookmarking both Daria and Akarra II.

It is one of the "shards" that are using a server/client that were distributed for free use to play around with. If you are looking for the successor: www.akarra.org
