Computer Help Needed...

    I have had an ongoing UO problem for sometime now. When i change out of Ninja animal form, my client will lock up for at least a few seconds, and sometimes requiring a client restart to get moving again. I mean EVERY TIME, the client will completely stop, with the only exception being the Gauntleted Mouse Pointer. I can still move it around, but every thing else freezes.
    All other systems functions work normally, only the UO client is effected.

    I have turned on the system monitor and during this "event", the CPU usage never goes over 50%, or the Memory usage over 60%. I have DLed an Internet monitor, and the bandwidth is not maxed out either.

    System is a 2.8 P4 with 1 gig RAM.
    Video Adapter is a Radeon 9550 / X1050 series.

    And ideas would be appreciated.

    I had that consistently happen to me as well (KR). I don't know what I did that changed it (I have been tweaking a lot of lot things trying to get more stability), but it has now stopped happening to me.

    This is in 2D, I have deleted KR from my system as it is pointless now since a "new" client will be introduced with SA.

    This might be a problem only EA/Mythic can help you with. The only thing I can think of is your client.exe or some component of it is corrupt. I'd remove UO and re-install it.

    This happened to me until I updated my comp. Check to make sure ALL your drivers are up to date. And get at least a gig more of RAM.

    It happens to me every time i change out of animal form as well.
    The computer I am using is about 10 years old (P III 800 / Voodoo 5500) but my internet connection is fast. I usually have no problem with 2D exept for this animal form freeze.
    I can only tell you that i have this problem as well on my machine but when i play on my girlfriends machine (modern + fast connection) the delay/freeze is hardly noticable (but still there).

    Yes, I have heard from others that they also have this problem, but no one seems to be able to find the common thread. It seems to have started almost a year ago with a patch, forget which one. I have made several posts over the last several months, and even sent in bug reports. But in EA's usual competence, they have done squat.
