    Lol i thought this was funny, when loading UO tonight i accidently clicked on the old UOKR icon instead of the UOSA icon. It patched up until the last patch that was ever released then upon starting the game stated "this client is no longer supported please uninstall and download the current client".

    I just thought it was funny that it would even patch the client at all.

    Bummer still this that client. Yeah it crashed early on until the modders put some work into but it got a bad overall. EC client is basically a stable UOKR client with CC graphics.

    KR was smooth and had some very nice graphics....

    Hopefully they'll do something to improve the graphics/resolution with the EC Client or make the 2D in high res...something definitely needs to be done the sooner the better.:thumbup1:

    Excalty! The EC is a stable, very unsmooth and unperformend version of the KR client. Sorry but thats the result i see now. This might change in the future, i hope.

    The only thing good about the KR client was the housing menu.... which I keep trying to get them to put back into the game....


    I want the KR housing menu back. They kept the KR custom menu.... why not the housing menu?

    The weird thing about the transfer from KR to EC was that they seemed to revert UI elements that would have been better off REMAINING in KR/EC mode (house menu, Atlas, crafting menus, Animal Lore gump, and almost the runebook gump, but that was stopped after a HUGE outcry on the closed beta boards), and kept the ones that would have been better off in the classic mode (written books mainly, they could have put a book background on spell books and rune books) in the KR/EC mode.

    And yes, the low resolution is still a HUGE step backwards for the EC. I still have huge folders of screenshots from about 2000 through today in 2d, early 3d, post LBR 3d, KR, and EC, but the most dangerous ones for me to look at from an emotional standpoint are the KR ones because I miss that look... the look of what UO could have been with a bit more polish-work.

    Now I have to hope for at least the OPTION of either KR or higher resolution graphics to appear, but know that this is becoming more and more difficult of a hope to retain considering the company mergers, bad economy, etc.

    I honestly preferred KR in just about every way. Wish they would have kept it. It's not like the new one gained any more users.

    I'd have to disagree there Ender. I believe the new one DID bring in more users than KR, however I wish it would not have been done so at the cost of so many things being downgraded or stripped from the client in order to do so.
