    Okies a freind as expressed an interest in trying UO...

    so i tell him to try the kingdom reborn 15 day trial...

    but hes got an older computer that wil prob not run KR....

    so whats his best shot...is there a actual 2d only download trial or will he be better borrowing my last cd ( possibly 8th age or samuri empire??) then patching the rest to date???

    advice anyone:)

    1.) Upgrade the computer
    2.) Go to your local game store
    3.) Buy WoW
    4.) ??????

    He wants to try/play the grand-daddy of ''the genre'' not a pretty grind fest.

    I found a full boxed Samurai and 8th Age sets on Ebay for £0.99 each. The 8th age comes with an advanced char token, and several other nice freebies, the 6th age/Tokuno comes with a soulstone frag and others.

    Ok, its a 75m dl of patches after that but well worth the effort based on current costs, its a great way to get a couple of million, buy your first home, a 100lrc suit and a ride. :)

    Hrm, I went to EB games web site and searched for Ultima Online, and it returned nothing! What's with that? If it's not for sale in stores, how are they going to get new customers. I play already, but I wish they'd sell it and advertise it. :(

    As far as I know, there is no difference between a "KR" account and a "2D" account. You could try to create an account with the KR trial code, and then download and log in the 2D client instead. I bet it works :)

    If you do not find the code, drop me a PM. I have a few extra 30-day free new account codes.
