    Did a GM show up and if so, did you respond to them? what third party program (i know you can't name it,, but name what it does) we need more details on the matter.

    Never be afraid to challenge the status quo

    I feel like people are more likely to get banned for using legal programs.. cause it's probably more rare for  GM to encounter someone playing without any cheats.  

    This is the saddest state of the game I've ever seen it in.

    the account you paged on I'm assuming was an EJ account?  if nothing happened to an EJ account then UO's f**ked.

    Well then it must be legal. I drove over 100 miles today going 85 on the highway.  Speed limit signs must be wrong and what I was doing was OK also.

    Now that you know it is fine to use your client are you going to stop complaining/advertising it daily?


    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.

         Nah, but you hear about people being banned for boxing up vorpal bunnies?

       Third-party program use should be considered at least 500x more of an offense, yet no bans?
     if you think about it, most of the issues in UO are caused by third-party clients/cheats/bots ,all done with the same few 'tools'.

      Could you imagine UO where the devs don't turn a blind eye to cheaters?  -it'd be dead for a while if there were suddenly a mass-banning of cheaters, you might see a few people running around... i can tell you champ spawns would be very safe on all shards, except the super duper easy to check ones  (despise, deceit, destard, fire)  people don't even remember the route they used to take checking spawns manually anymore because now there are cams for that and every guild uses them.  -btw, Cams are probably the least damaging 'cheat' in UO.

    They're pretty safe as is now. I can do despise whenever I want on Atl. Merv is the only one that's ever "raided".

    When you do something they can see clearly they punish you.  Do the GMs know what client you are using to send commands to UO?  I don't know,  do you?

    Do they see hay blocking a recall spot, do they see items blocking the path of a mob. Yes. 

    It's been a year, I need to ask for the hay bail account to get unbanned.

    If using Third Party clients is accepted with Ultima Online, should this now be the case, why cannot this be stated, OFFICIALLY, rather then letting players have to "guess it" on their own and still remain in doubt ?

    I mean, a Rule, to my humble opinion, needs to be set in stone, clear for all to understand and go with it.

    If using Third Party software with Ultima Online is now legit, I think this should be stated OFFICIALLY.

    Props to Popps for getting the point across in a brief statement. Bravo. Keep it short n sweet. 

    Fully agree but if anything is made "official" it'll make it hard to backtrack in case they ever do decide to take action. 
  • MariahMariah Posts: 3,040Moderator
    I cannot speak officially, but I can give you my logical take on the situation.
    Using a 3rd party application, in any capacity, is a security risk to your account. I believe Broadsword would be unwise to give a green light to the use of any program they have no control over for this reason.

    Exactly why they want to reside in the grey area: they don't have to take action. 

    Plus, its hard to keep track of all the "bans" for the monthly newsletter..........
  • SkettSkett Posts: 1,452
    I read several pvp discord channels daily and it seems as though almost all of the pvpers use 3d party client. it sounds like its far better than our 2d client. If they took action on all the players using other clients you would probably kill the game off.

    not sure why anyone cares about this at this point just enjoy your own game play.  
  • SethSeth Posts: 2,904
    They didn't ban you probably because they could not believe anyone would be so dumb as to report themselves. Its like the robber confessing he just robbed a bank.
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

       There's that full circle.

      TBH,if the official shards don't take it seriously, why should the players?

    A year ago I asked, in a very sincere mood, 'What is the official stance on using 3rd party scripts' in this thread here. I never expected there would be so much interest expressed or so many opinions offered but the thing that REALLY gets me is the silence from those that could give us clarity.
    My personal opinion is that, like we all know, some things just can't be said aloud. So I've decided that for as long as I can,  I will play the game like I always have, doing my own thing, one click of the mouse at a time and not fret about the rest.

    "you probably play in trammel where you're not hit by bugs every 5 seconds that get you killed,

    when i play in trammel, i experience pretty much 0 bugs, and can play on broadsword client no problems at all, it's almost as if they never tested it in fel and all the testing was done in trammel"

    95+% of UO would belive this because they have no want or need to use cheats to play better than others. 

    So how much time should be invested in the 2% of UO who will do what you already said,  that you would continue to use the 3rd party client even if UO fixed your "bugs".  Waste of their time, waste of yours. 

    Age of Empires has a clicky for cheat mode so all the players can choose that or to play without them. Many more players play AoE than UO.
    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.

    and 2% figures please

    i guess rather than fixing attunement bug, what the game really needs is more huntmaster trophies.."

    I agree with that. And more rewards. Some new hat and shield blanks.

    Attunement works as designed. Just not how YOU want it to work.

    You don't serious believe that only 5% of the population uses some form of cheat ? DId I read your reply wrong ?  You got it backwards.
