    Why does my classic client patcher only download up to 2mb at a time of artLegacyMUL.uop before crashing? I am running it on Windows 7 in XP SP3 compatibility mode as admin. This problem only seems to occur when larger patches are released, and this particular file always seems to be the problem. I have tried deleting it and re-downloading but the patcher still crashes.

    I've tried literally every combination of ways to make this work, which is why I need some dev/tech support guidance on where to go next.

    It's taking an age to patch for me. Stuck at the same part as you are Risso. I've went from 93% to 94% patched in twenty minutes.

    I wish mine was taking ages instead of just crashing every time, I finally gave up after having to restart it for the 60th time.

    Was same for me - downloading went fine till later on and last 10% took about an hour - something not right there for sure. I suppose I have to be grateful it did work when so much doesn't seem to lately.

    I'm glad I started mine went to work and came home to it being done..so in my eyes it took 0 min :). With that in mind.."If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"

    Same for me... It went painfully slow and stopped several times for what seemed like 20 mins each time..

    someone should just upload that art file to a public storage site on the internet and put up a link

    it's not like you'd have to worry about it being a virus or anything because the patcher checksums every file to make sure they're perfect before starting the client and you could always perform a full file check if you were super paranoid

    Have you tried to "Perform Full File Check"?

    Does it crash immediately as you start the patcher or does it complete the checksum first?

    Yep tried doing a full file check several times, the patcher will load up and start downloading the file but after between 100kb and 2.5mb is downloaded I'll get a 'Patch Client has stopped working' message and it'll close out.

    Have you tried to start the patcher out of your UO directory?
    In another thread we discovered that someone had a corrupted patch and wasnt able to see new content (Easter Goose) and after he started the patcher out of the UO directory, it patched correctly and all is good.
    Maybe you need to try it without any uoa or pinco loader etc..
    Hope it helps?

    If all else fails, uninstall the game, taking care to delete the directory (running CCleaner to remove vestigial registry entries won't hurt), then reinstall.
