    Hail.

    So, I decided to mess around with the EC again. Installed Pinco's UI and whatnot. I have a really annoying issue right now that is causing the healthbars of mobs to just stop updating. They'll work for perhaps 5-10 minutes then cease being updated and constantly remain on 100% until the mob dies. The only solution I have found to this is logout/close the client and re-log in. It's kinda significantly annoying enough to put me off the client as this is something really basic that should be functional. =/

    Is this a known issue or what? Any work-arounds?

    it's a well known issue by many months but seems noone care to fix it... and that's one of the many reason that will bring me to not care about UO very soon...

    Oh. Well... that's great. -sigh-

    And people wonder why others are critical of this client. :p

    It has potential to be really nice, but if fundamental, core things are non-functional this is sorta a joke.

    It's not just this client... how many YEARS they took to fix the recall crash on CC? :D

    Adding new grinding events is the devs priority over improving the client and the playability in general ...

    Yeah, the recall crash was annoying. I crash quite a few times in the EC too. Was sat in a boat earlier on the edge of Vesper intending to head to Ice Isle and scrolled through the in-game map and the client crashed. Another time I was running from Despise towards Brit and the client exited unexpectedly. The EC seems to crash rather frequently for me at this point unfortunately.

    In addition, my gaming computer is decent (can run WoW, GW2, etc. on high) yet the EC stutters a bit when running around Luna vendors or other areas where there's a high number of players/mobiles on screen. Doesn't really seem to make any difference what settings I put or even how small I make the play window, it still lags a little in these places. Dunno if there's work-arounds or known issues with this too?

    Meh....

    make sure to start the game as admin and set the folder privileges of "Everyone" to full control. This client has some trouble to read/write files without the full rights...

    Yeah, my settings seem to be okay in that regard and I do run as admin. Oh well. :p
