Back After A Couple Years .... Help

Discussion in 'UO Players Corner' started by dereck, Feb 22, 2009.

    About two years ago I had the hard drive UO was installed on crash on me. I did, however, save the account directory with the player shards, my character names and under each name their configuration files (containing macros, etc).

    When I reinstalled UO today and logged on and off I searched and I couldn't find any of the directories.

    The old structure I had was something like:

    Lake Superior
    character #1
    character #2
    character #3
    character #4
    character #5

    Within each character subdirectory were the following files:


    I "WAS" hoping I'd just have to copy some of these files (like the macros) to the new directories and save myself the trouble of having to set up all these macros again on all 5 characters when I did it once and saved them.

    Could anyone explain if this is still possible or if the game I downloaded in October (it took a while to get around to installing obviously) is different than the Age of Shadows version I had on my old hard drive?

    Your old macro files should still work, but I think a change was patched to the clients recently that relocated this info. Try looking in My Documents under the EA Games folder. See if you can find the info there. You should be able to copy your macro files into these folders.

    There is a directory there with the character I logged in as. About the only difference I can see in the macro file is that it's now called macros2d.txt and the one I have saved from 2003 is just macros.txt.
