    Hey there...

    Whichever client you were using, you can download it here:
    http://www.uo.com/Client-Download

    As for your user data... If you still have access to your old computer's hard drive and depending on your operating system:

    Copy everything in these directories to your new computer ... Also depending on which operating system you are now using...

    Windows XP:
    C:\Documents and Settings\(Your name)\My Documents\EA Games\Ultima Online Stygian Abyss\User Data\(Both account names)\

    Windows 7:
    C:\Users\(Your name)\My Documents\EA Games\Ultima Online Stygian Abyss\User Data\(Both account names)\

    What you should do is install the client, start it up and login with both accounts.. Then copy the files into the corresponding directories/folders on your new computer... If you are using Windows 8 now, I am not sure where the files are stored.. More than likely it's in the same directories as Windows 7, but ... You will have to check.. Or do a search on Stygian Abyss in Windows Explorer...

    Hope that helps...

    At least for the classic client you can simply copy the complete Ultima Online game folder (in my installation it contains also the account and character profiles within subfolder Desktop), export the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Origin Worlds Online from the old machine via regedit and import it to the new one via double click if the game path remains unchanged and create new shortcuts to the executables.
    For UO Assist download it and run it and after that import the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Tugsoft\UOAssist from your old machine to save you the needs to recover your keys.

    First, install the client in the link in first post. Then copy the game folder from old computer to new computer with a memory stick or something. (That will save you hrs of patching).

    Then copy all files under documents, as posted to your new computer - then you should be set to go in a few minutes with all your old macros and settings.

    It's still the case. They're just saved under My Documents now, instead of the UO installation folder. There are separate directories for the CC and EC clients.
