    I have been playing for 11 years and during that time I still have not figured out the targeting system for UO. I am sure this is not the way to do it but I have always used "tab" to target and I find that to not be useful. Last night during an EM event (I know, not the best time to try new stuff) I played around with those targeting command buttons that are found in the macro menus but nothing helped. I used the standard EC to play.

    I have two problems that I hope someone can help with:

    1- Is there a way not to target the EV and RC's others cast when trying to find a legit target? (this is the least of my concerns but would be sweet if there was a way to not target summons).

    2- In using "Tab" to target if I accidentally go past the desired target I will get the target of lets say "a Hind with no life" and I will need to hit "Tab" 45 times to cycle back to the actual targets, and then most of the time I will pass it up again. During the EM events trying to point to target just doesn't work with the number of players, EV, RC's and GD's fighting.

    Any help/advice would be awesome.

    In the CC there's a "SelectPrevious" which gives you a list of: Hostile, Party, Follower, Object, & Mobile...
    I wouldn't know where this would be in the EC though, but surely they have an option for this?

    I'm also pretty sure this is only usable with the newer targetting system. (I use the old target system, that displays a very small HP-bar under your current target) :D

    I am not sure how the vanilla EC works. I use Pinco's UI for my EC. I have a mobiles tab that I can expand, and can set to show what I want (Everyting, hostiles only, players only, npcs only etc.). I also use a "Target Next Hostile and Target Closest Hostile" Macro (similar to the old CC version of pressing Tab). However, RC and EV are both considered "hostiles" so they will always show up when targeting hostiles. I have not seen or found a way to get around this (hence why I use a combination of target next/target closest).

    If you are playing the EC, you should really check out Pinco's UI. The vanilla EC is kind of bland and you are missing out tremendously using it without Pinco's.
