    Go to your client.exe as well as your uoassist.exe.

    Right click it.
    Go to properties
    Click compatability
    Put a check on disable visual themes
    Put a check on run as administrator
    Apply the changes



    If this helps the client freezes on logins post feedback for others.

    It worked for me.

    Unfortunately, what many of us are experiencing are SERVER freezes, with everyone on screen (including all the monsters) freezing.

    Somehow I've manage to drop uoassist from the top of my screen while attempting Soulweaver's changes. Anyone posting any suggestions on how to get uoassists titlebar display to reapear? I do have this option checked in uoassist/display.

    I've found that Soulweaver's suggestions disable the titlebar function with the uoscreen...while i had hoped it kept me from lagging the 2 hours i played with the changes, the cost of not being able to see your bandages counting down makes playing a dexer extremely difficult.

    Had same issue so I just hired an illegal to sit next to me and count down from 4 every time I mash my bandy key.

    Works great and only cost me $75 a day plus meals

    No way.

    Totally worth it as I taught this one to count down in English and he also does all of my landscaping.

    Last guy was a pain as I had to learn 1- 4 in Spanish :(
