    Check your firewall program and make sure its allowing UO to go through. It may have been blocked by accident

    I've been crashing like crazy.
    At least once every single time I log in.

    Btw is it the classic client or enhanced client? If its the enhanced client and if its not the the firewall causing the issue then make sure you have the box checked. Its the bottom right corner full file check or something like that.

    Flutter,

    Have you always crashed all the time when you played UO or just after the patch?

    Well my answer would work for either way without bypassing your router (if you are using one). Go into your firewall and allow UO to get by. What it sounds to me its partially blocking which may be causing your crashes. So this will let your firewall re-learn UO and allow it to go through. May fix it but cant guarantee it. It's worth a shot.

    I have been crashing like crazy since the last couple of patches.... I crashed about 5 times last night it's been going on since Halloween.

    I remember doing it everytime I left the stables in Zento. Not sure what's up with that but quite often I'll crash at events.

    I use windows 7 and the EC. Infact I've noticed a HUGE increase in LAG since the last publish to the point where eventually I'll just stop frozen... can't move at all. Happens more in the evenings when there are more folk on than during the day but it's very annoying.
