    Just wondering what "legal" apps work with the CC? I use to have UO Assist and some other that worked back in the day. Since I came back I haven't been using any and wonder what I should get. I'd really like a map program for one. I tried a couple but never got a map program to work. Probably tried using something that wasn't supported anymore, dunno. Any suggestions of what you use that works well? Anyway just wondering what the kids are using these days :)

    uoam still works, look for Kojak's posts in the sticky at the top.
    uoassist still works too, so you should be able to get your key and launch that if you're using your old account.

    Thanks, just wanted to make sure some of this stuff still worked :) I'll probably just buy everything new, I'm sure it's easier than trying to figure out how to get my old info back, lol. I'm sure they like the idea of making a few bucks too ;)

    Actually it's pretty easy to relocate a lost key if you paste the "seed" into this page.

    I don't think you could even buy a new UOA code if you wanted. Well, unless it's an account that never had one :) It's got a built in system to recover the key based on the account you're using.

    I used to play with UOAssist but I never understood what it is good for. Playing for 3 years now without ANY third party programm in the CC and only thing I miss is an Auto-Dress-Macro after dying...

    UOAssist is 50% of UO for me. One key press and it will bandage my dragon or recall home. Awesome.

    You can still buy UOAssist for a new account using the means on Tugsoft's web page. I did it for an account not too long ago.

    They have added enough macros to the CC now that I could play without UOA. But I still love it and still use it.

    If you plan on doing any PvP at all in the CC (and not use illegal cheats), UOA is a necessity.

    One key hit for apples, locked crates (para boxes), all your potions, and mystics heal stone for starters.
    One key hit for smoke bombs, bolas, to mount and dismount, and teleport "target relative" to get away
    when your dismounted - all things KEY to successful PvP. It allows you to switch between 4 different
    weapons or spellbooks (your choice) and probably one of the most convenient options for FAST response
    to many situations (imo) - you can map "target self" to mouse wheel down and "last target" to mouse wheel up.

    For bards, you can map all different slayer instruments to hotkeys. At the top of your screen where your
    account shows, you can add displays such as weight, potion counts, arrow/bolt counts, and tithing points
    just to name a few. This list of advantages goes on the more you play with the program and figure it out.

    Tell the dexer attacking you, "Wait a sec while I stop moving so I can target a heal pot!" :sword:
    Tell that mage, "Stop casting a min while I click this apple I got here!" :flame:
    Tell that gank squad, "Chill guys! I gotta click this trapped box for that evil omen para u hit me with!":stretcher:

    Without UOA your gonna be speaking Cheerios & seeing in Black/White most of your PvP experience. :wall:
    There's always exceptions, such as playing the 5-7 key dexer but the overwhelming majority of players will
    fair MUCH better in the CC using UOA. :thumbup:

    PS. I PvPed from 1997-2002 using just UO when guildmates convinced me to try UOA. My attitude prior to UOA was "I refuse to pay for a program to let me play a game. It should be in the game already damn it!" I still believe the second sentence is correct.

    Dismount works, too? I never got that one to work. Might try again. And yes, healing stone! Curing potion! Bandaids, I love them all.


    Mh Well if this would work it would be awesome. I would enjoy it so much more than the trash talk we are all accustomed to. It was old 16 years ago but it still clutters General Chat. Well, no offense meant. I just don't happen to enjoy it.
