    I already patched the EC, worked like a charm. But the CC gives me troubles.

    When starting UOPatch.exe, the UI doesn't respond for a few seconds. Then I get the following message:

    The last time I had an active account (about 6-8 months ago), the client worked. Since I didn't uninstall/reinstall the client in the meantime, this should work. Or maybe just the IP of the patch server has changed?

    Does your 2D client use the new patcher or is it still using the old screen?

    Here's a screenshot of my patcher. Doesn't look that fancy, so it's probably an old one...

    k, a few months ago they updated the patching system, it now works like EC, your files are checked each time you log in and it only patches those it needs. However, anyone who missed the publish that did this seems to have major problems getting from the old patcher to the new one. Best I can suggest is copy your desktop somewhere safe, uninstall, download the new installer Ultima Online Client Downloads | Mythic Entertainment | Ultima Online and re-install. It will take a while though :(

    Doh! But thanks for the quick answer :)

    Btw, a reinstall of the new setup provided from your link fixed the problem.

    Just found a workaround for this. I know it's a "too late solution" for the OP, but eventually it might help someone else...

    This does only apply if you have an old CC install which has been last patched before march 12 2012, (version < 7.0.24.2) and cannot be patched any further due to the error described above.
    (should be like a last resort - a fresh install is always preferable!)

    Edit the file "vercfg.cfg" in your UO game directory with notepad / editor and replace line 4:

    compassion.owo.com 8888

    with this:

    patch.uo.eamythic.com 8888

    This is what the first 5 lines should look like after the edit:
    Code:
    0
    .
    patch\
    patch.uo.eamythic.com 8888
    0
    
    leave the remaining part of the file untouched.

    Good luck... if it works, only 750+ MB to go! ;)
