    I just returned to UO after a few years away. How to you copy a macro set from one charcter to another? Seems there used to be a folder of character files and you just copy and pasted the macro set but all I find is default macro files.

    My Computer - C Drive (or wherever ye gots UO) - Program Files - EA Games - UO - Desktop - Account folder - Shard folder - Character folder - copy macros file - paste in other character folder


    Ye can also keep a macro file on yer desktop fer easy editing and pasting. ;)

    i believe the character files are stored in your "My Documents" folder now - they used to be stores in C:\Program Files\EA Games\Ultima Online folder, but i think they recently changed that to get around a Norton thingy. Anyways, yes, if you go into My Documents there should now be an EA Games folder, and within that is each account's characters by shard. Inside each characters folder is a file named macros something. Mine are called macros2d. just copy that file from the char folder you want and paste it into the other char's folders.

    I'm using 2D as well.

    I just returned a week ago and did the Fileplanet download for two hours but all that file did was spin drive C and nothing else. Must not have liked something about my system. I wound up doing a search of some stuff in storage and turned up LBR which I installed and let it patch for a half hour or so. All the character info was in the My Doc folder in this case.

    I might try KR when it's considered fit to use, but I've never liked the past 3D clients. That last one released (before ML) ran slower than 2D did. Hunting anything that wasn't slow as molasses in Antartica would get my characters dirtnapped.

    I don't hold much hope for a working UO 3D Client.

    Seadog, then it's a miracle that you can play, as the last patch moved all that stuff to My Documents, for 2D (it was already there in KR).

    Or, as I found you can name your chars the same and have them bleed over to the next char you use with same name. Presto no more set up required.:D


    Only two with the same name but it really plays havoc with my macro's.

    Arrrr, ain't had a chance ta play since that last patch! The patch probably created the folders in My Documents, but they be empty since there been no loggin' in yet. At least now I'll be knowin' why me macros may not be workin' (unless I done had too much rum and fergets ;))!
