    yr macros should be saved in 'my documents/eagames' etc.. just back them up, and try this:

    Delete everything in the 'patch' folder in your eagames/uo/uo2d folder, then try to patch again.

    if that doesn't work, im affraid yr screwed. DL and re-install. Shouldn't need to do anything in terms of your macros, they won't be touched if you uninstall..

    We have once again at Tech forum where you can go to for assistance with macros and other stuff. It's been up for some months. Maybe they have something there if you weren't able to find it here.

    Once upon a time,
    There was a guy who broke his client and came asking for help.
    Gemma offered his very best advice to the man,
    'na, its a uo machine' was his reply.
    This left Gemma feeling very confused as what he meant by that.
    Moreover, Gemma could not understand why he would not try to do what Gemma said to do.

    The man never fixed his computer,
    and we all lived happily ever after..

    Theeeee end.

    Time for bed kal. Did you brush your teeth?

    okay sorry, i didn't know you hadn't figured it out. Um. Sorry If i sounded condescending.
    Here i made you some files to help:

    FIrst This should clear some stuff up for you: notice, that these files are NOT in your UO program folder, but in your my documents. Basically that means, you can delete UO entirely, and these files will not be touched.. Before messing with ANYTHING, make sure your client is CLOSED>

    so, lets say, you want all the same macros on each of your characters. copy the macros 2d file, like this: (this example shows .cfg file, which is settings like fonts and stuff) [​IMG]

    and paste it into the folder that belongs to the character you want to have those same macros/configuration/desktop setting etc.. Like this:
    [​IMG]

    To move macros from one machine to another, just paste the files you want into a folder somewhere, and email them to yourself.

    Now, what i meant by the patch thing.. If you're getting a patching error, or cant log in, this is often what will resolve this: Go to this folder, and delete everything that is there (with a CLOSED client of coarse) and patch again.

    omg well i was never one for schematics either but this is what gm had to say

    Close uo game

    Visit your my documents folder

    open the ea game folder

    open the ultima online legacy folder

    open the user data folder

    open the folder that has your account name

    open the pacific folder

    delelte the folder named pickles ??

    WTF PICKLES ?? i follow all the steps but one problem THERE IS NO FOLDER NAMED PICKLES

    will spend 30 min going over gemmas notes while siping beer

    you think if i just delete all these folder and reinstall it will help ? :confused:

    if you don't mind setting up all your macros/settings again, yes. do it.

    Just be sure to delete EVERYTHING after you have un-installed.

    Pickles? You have a character named pickles? I think maybe he just meant 'the character in question' i.e. the name of the character you are trying to mess with should be the name of the folder. yes, id try deleting the entire folder I guess. It will basically reset all of his settings and everything to default.

    In summary, it might save you the trouble of re-installing.

    this stuff started right after the new clients came out. Macros used to be saved in the actual folder for uo.
    I have had this periodically since then, 3-5 times.
    I do a sytem restore to the day before and it works fine.
