Flashback to the 90s

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Jarlaxle_DoUrden, Sep 15, 2010.

  1. I was thinking about giving UO a go again but the last time I played would have been 1999 (I think)...

    Would the characters still exist?

    My account is still around (I have checked) but if I re-upped my sub what should I expect so see? nothing?

    Anyone? Thoughts?

    Welcome back. :)

    I believe your characters will still be there with their skills/items etc, Can't confirm that but I would be surprised if it had been deleted over time.

    They should still be there. I wonder if you could log in to myUO and look for them under your account name.
     
  4. That would be totally cool ... loved my T-hunter :) Lots of fun
     
  5. The following error occurred.

    Account verification failed.

    The MyUO username and password provided did not match our records. You may have typed your username or password incorrectly.

    Remember, your MyUO username and password are not the same as your UO username and password.

    If you haven’t created a MyUO account, please click here.

    If you have created a MyUO account, but have forgotten the password, click here.

    GO BACK

    You may wish to correct the error and retry your submission.

    Is this my EA account or UO Account? I can login to the edit sub for UO account ... but for some reason MYUO can't confirm my account.

    I "believe" that MyUO will only show characters that have been logged in in the past 30 days or something like that.

    Welcome back and good luck!
     
  7. One more question ...

    Should I install one of my old versions or download the upgrade new version (is it a full install?)

    I guess I will go ahead and re-sub ... worst case scenario ... all my stuff is gone and I am out $12.

    Thanks for the info.

    Any old CD will install both 2d and old 3d, Then patch both them up to disable 3d. So you are FAR better off downloading the 2d client again and using that.

    MyUO uses a different Username and password then your actual uo account.

    And yes when using MyUO you can only see char that were logged in in the last 30 days.

    However if you still have access to old account username, password and email, then all your char and items in their packs and banks should be there still.

    good luck and welcome back!

    I am not so sure the 'stuff' you had back then would be of much value. So if your stuff is gone, it may not be that big of a setback.

    Now if the characters are gone, that might require a bit of training to get them back to where they were, though not everyone enjoys training.

    If you end up not continuing to play, then you are right, it's only $12.

    If you just want to 'see' what UO is currently like, then you might want to try a 14-day free trial first. If the game itself doesn't appeal to you, then that would be $0 wasted.

    Either way, good luck, welcome back, and that last book killed me! (referring to your Stratics ID)

    But alot of that "stuff" from way, way back is considered rare now since alot of it doesn't spawn any longer. Or has that changed recently? I'm speaking from past experience, and been away myself for almost 2 years now. :)
     
  13. So I was on last night ... all my gear is there ... but no other peeps. Great Lakes must have become deserted?

    Or maybe everyone is hanging around newer content.

    My time zone is AST (Atlantic Standard Time = Eastern Standard Time +1 hour).

    Anyone playing on Great Lakes want to give a re-newb a quick update on what has taken place since the 90s ;)

    Cheers.
     
  14. If you come to atlantic, Ill give you a few million to get started. Its busy there and probably worth the jump.

    Not sure where people hang about on GL, But assuming you checked Britain Bank in Trammel, Did you also check Luna bank in Malas? Either one of those should be the 'hub' for players.
     
  16. Making the jump to Atlantic consists of what? ...

    Character Transfers? I have 5 characters on GL ... all were capped when I shut down my sub ...

    It was funny last night ... I couldn't even remember how to attack ... and NO ONE was around ... not even the bank in Brit. Weird... I remember how people used to stand around there spamming messages.

    It's going to take me some time to get back into the swing of things.

    GL is very much alive! The devs thought it would be funny to have an invasion of brit years ago. The invasion lasted a long time. Everyone migrated to Luna (I hate that word). After the invasion everyone kinda stayed in Luna since they were so used to going their during the invasion. With the new general chats and help chats etc you see more of the spam you remmber in those chats in the journal than in town.

    GL is the best shard and we are glad to have you back!

    Frankly, uo isnt good as it used to be. Too much changed and the UO feeling is gone, but if you like WoW for an example you might enjoy the game.
