  • If you are a returning player with an EJ account, the bank box can only hold 25 items.  If yours has more than that from you previous experience with UO, you may have a problem.  Read about that when I started a few years ago.  Otherwise, you just g…
  • UO is an older game with an older player base.  In the short time I have played a lot of names I used to see here, I see no more.  Don’t think it’s because they went on to other games or just became dissatisfied with this one.  That’s just reality. …
  • The only sure way to find out just what is in the container is to go and look at it.  If it has seven different items and one is a helmet if you search on helmet, your search will only bring up helmet and the container.  Unless the seller provides a…

  • That container business is the way vendor search works but don’t recall it telling you how much or what else is in the container.  Just separate listings for the container and each thing that is in there. I usually list what is in the container in t…

  • Banks in Luna and Britain, EM events, weekly Void event if your shard has one, and periodic dungeon type events where players work together to bring down the tougher monsters.  Usually, you will find a few players in New Haven looking to help new pl…

  • Don’t PvP myself but saw what bots could do at last years Easter egg hunt.   The smarter ones could easily outperform any human player.  Amazed at how fast they were.  Don’t know if they were monitored or on their own.  They did not have to move or …
  • It’s been doing this bug at least for three years.  When I first started playing with a guild, a members pet dragon started chasing me. Did not know why at the time but after accidentally attacking my own summons and a guild mate eventually figured …
  • Have somewhat mixed feelings about this event.  Thought the thorn part worked out really well, especially for teams of two or three. Not too much down time that way and always got more eggs than thorns used taking part. Plenty of time for players to…
  • Remember this is UO.  Jewelry boxes can’t sort either.  Maybe the same person created both.  Not really sure UO has any sorting ability. UO incorporated video game programming not spreadsheet programing.  Don’t disagree with your logic about what co…
  • Would be helpful if the locker could sort maps by location.  Currently, depending on the level, I will take out a dozen or so and sort them by sight.  My treasure hunter has one rune book for Trammel and one for Fel.  I have a runic atlas that has m…
  • Early essays I read often recommended players starting out as warriors include focus in their templates, but nowdays I very rarely see it in recommended templates and I don’t use it in any of mine.  Think it’s operation is similar to meditation for …
  • Could be a server thing.  That makes some sense.  Sometimes when all the maps in a backpack reset , I will just read one after another to check their locations so I can group the ones that are near each other.  Lately, maybe last six months or so, a…
  • Has the mechanic for reading maps changed since the current event started?  Before the event, I just clicked on any map in any backpack including my characters.  I never put a map on the ground first. I have noticed now that some maps take forever t…
  • Have learned a lot about the UO files on my computer from players responding to this thread.  Thank you.  Thread seems to be meandering a little now to bugs. After four years of playing and looking at tons of older as well as newer stuff written abo…
  • Did not get this message last night when I logged on with Google.   Is this just a Firefox issue? Really, someone on staff should be responsipal for updating the website certificate.  Have not seen the expired message for years on any site.  Think U…
  • Did you find a statement about negative reviews in the terms and conditions?  I just scan them now as long as my attention span permits which is not that long.  They are written generally in a way that discourages people from reading them (lots of v…
  • In Saul’s original post on this he said the GM recommended he buy a name change.  He bought the name change.  He did what UO told him to do.  On reading this post the GM should be out there now helping him resolve the issues he is having with his ma…
  • Thanks for the reminder.  Always forget to do that.
  • Check your hard drive for your ultima online files.  I don’t use the cloud either so mine are on my hard drive, suspect yours are too.  If I get the other computer running might consider putting my UO files in the cloud but for the time being will k…
  • Thanks for the information.
  • Even though you might not see many players if you only found one house that’s not normal, at least I don’t think it is.  Might try calling out in general chat.  Most major events require at least three or four players working together even if they d…
  • Happens to me when I logon for a minute or so.  Otherwise was ok but was playing alone.  Game seems to have the most, other than for the usual ones, problems after maintence is done.

  • Lord_Frodo agree with your comment above.  Was referring mostly to those personal attacks from players you don’t know in real life and most likely never will whose posts have little or nothing to do with the discussion, or are so abstract it is impo…
  • ????.  How to say this?  Sometimes better to just let stuff go over you head and not to respond at all.  Especially if a response would serve no purpose.
  • Believe it’s left justified.  Not familiar with this software but when I used to insert things like that in documents you could left, center or right justify graphic boxes.
  • Believe the left side of the box lines up with the center of the page or very close to it.  
  • Depends what you are looking for.  It’s dated, buggy and fairly new user unfriendly, but it’s still fun to play.  You don’t have to spend everything you have on a suit just to enjoy the game. 
  • As a mage would say just leave this alone.
  • That’s interesting.  For most npc vendors in EC it’s just a default menu for goods for sale.  Might be different for bankers and provisioners. Their for sale options varied some.  Always wondered if what they bought from players made a difference.  …
  • ???? What purpose does the new link serve?  Really starting to wonder about this forum anymore.  Seems more and more of the discussions just end up like this one with everyone going after each other.  Original link just displayed an example of what …
