    Well, I dug up the 9th AE discs and installed UO on my new comp this evening, as I'd like to be able to log in and give some stuff to people. I wanted to copy over my macros & preferences from the existing UO installation (also done from 9th AE discs) on my old laptop PC.

    The game path on both computers is:

    C:\Program Files\EA Games\Ultima Online 9th Anniversary Collection

    On my laptop, in the game installation directory, there is a sub folder "Desktop" which in turn contains a sub folder for each account & char inside it. However, when I copied and pasted it to the same location on the new comp, none of those macros/preferences are showing up in the game for the char when I log in.

    It has been over 2 years since I actively played and more than 3 since I had to reinstall UO...can someone point me to the files I need to copy to the new installation to have my macros & preferences back?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    the path should be something like:

    C:\Documents and Settings\<login user>\My Documents\EA Games\Ultima Online Legacy\User Data\<EA account>

    Try that.

    Thank you! I copied the sub folders labeled with account names from the old Desktop folder to the path you provided, and that worked! My preferences, layout, and macros appear to be intact. :)
