Help! Cannot access vendor inventory!

Discussion in 'UHall' started by MonkeyBusiness, Aug 1, 2008.

  1. Hello everyone, unfortunately i had a vendor that disappeared due to lack of payment (whoops). Anyway, upon trying to reclaim his inventory I see that there is a "reclaim vendor inventory" tab under the house sign (i do not own the house). I click on this and it opens a new window titled "reclaim vendor inventory". This window is empty, contains nothing. How do i reclaim my inventory? Unfortunately, I had about $4 million in items on the vendor at the time. I should menton that i use KR and am I not a friend of the house so I don't have rights to the house's containers. Can anyone help?

    Well Im the owner of the house and have been trying to help him get his stuff back and I figured out he cant do it because hes using the KR client. I myself can see the timer in 2d when I use the Reclaim Inventory option in the sign , but when I use KR I just get a blank menu with no timer or nothing. Got to love that awsome KR client *end sarcasm* .

    Try checking your moving crate. That's where the items I had on a vendor that went poof ended up for me.

    He cant use the moving crate because he doesnt own the house. I can see his vendor in the moving crate but cant do anything with it cept for access the rental contract.

    Ah, that sucks. He might just have to install the 2D client temporarily to get his items back. Hopefully that is an option. He should also submit a bug report, this is yet another thing that obviously needs fixing...
     
  6. Thanks everyone for the help. I am currently trying to use the 2D client I installed (9th Anniversary CDs) and having difficulty getting it up and running. I have KR on this computer as well. The KR works fine but the 9th anniv won't find an interenet connection when started. That is, it won't go past the patch screen which says it cannot detect internet connection. Yeah! This is getting fun.:lol: I figure that if I ever get this thing working I will then learn that I will have to repurchase Mondain's Legacy or have to deal with some other (even more) convoluted scenario. I suppose the EA dev team could not forsee people with KR setting up vendors.:dunce:

    Have you set up your firewall to allow the patch program to access the net?
     
  8. If its been more then 144 hours since the vendor collapsed, you cant reclaim the inventory. It becomes the property of the house owner and it is in the moving crate.

    I lost 40 million or so on origin. The house owner kept everything after saying hed help.

    You sound like you have a house owner that will help. If it is in his crate maybe they will give it back to you. If you cant get to reclaim and it hasnt been 144 hours i will eventually go into his moving crate and maybe you can get it that way.

    If you lose out and are on atlantic, Ill give you 2 million to help you out.
     
  9. Thanks for your kind words Raven and sorry for your loss (weird, sounds like someone just died). I just sent in a bug report reguarding the issue to EA and hopefully the next pub will deal with it *not holding breath*. Thankfully, Azazel has been going above and beyond anything I would have expected of him and is a true testiment to him and UO's community. Personally, I really just care about the 2 spring cleaning tickets (25k each) that were on there as I only have two characters that could ever come close to earning looting rights on Melissa. I had a huge chest of freebies also that I feel bad that newbies and char start-up's wont have access to but all-in-all not too expensive of a lesson if it all vanishes into KR oblivian. I feel bad for troubling Azazel as much as I have over the matter and he is certanly welcome to the stuff that was on the vendor (not that he or I really need it, just some junk laying around).
     
  10. Well let me cheer the owner.
    The help offer is open ended.

    People were kind to me when I lost my stuff. I made out better then the house owner and I am not talking gold. So, I try and pass the kindness along.
    I left sonoma and gave the 18x18 to a returning player. The house was named sonoma kindness.

    Though duping is around, I mostly focus on playing and meeting people. Its just seeing 1,000's of valorite hammers around and such is ridiculous. But I dont want to lose focus for possibly helping, in your case, when I can. More work went into your 25k tickets then the duper cloning 1000 hammers.

    He shouldn't have to do that to access any game functions. That's a huge problem. They should label KR as 'beta' at best still since it's still feature incomplete. Heck, it took a player modder to fix bulletin boards, and they still don't work in the default install!

    I love KR and I love UO but it's very, very sad that nothing is being done to at least complete the feature set. I know bugs can take a long time to fix, but implementing features should be a top priority.
