Unfortunately, simply checking the option on your paperdoll will accomplish nothing. In order to save the text file of your journal, you must first establish a path in your UO directory. The following system is what has worked for me: You first need to find your UO directory, which on many systems may be C:\Program Files\Ultima Online, or C:\EA GAMES\Ultima Online (that one gave me huge problems, and didn't work) or something similar. On my system, it happens to be C:\Ultima Online, so I will use that as my example. 1. Open your UO Directory, noting the path it uses. (C:\Ultima Online, in this case) 2. Create a new folder in your UO Directory. Label it Journal. (C:\Ultima Online\Journal, so far) 3. Open the folder and create an empty text file. Label it Journal.txt (C:\Ultima Online\Journal\Journal.txt) 4. Open the uo.cfg file in your UO Directory (use Notepad to open). Apply these settings: SaveJournal=on JournalSaveUnicode=off and then add the following line: JournalSaveFile=C:\Ultima Online\Journal\Journal.txt (this being whatever path pertains in your particular case) 5. Close the uo.cfg, click Okay on save changes. You may wish to also apply the same settings to your character's personal file, which can be found in the Desktop folder under accountname/shard/character name (each a seperate folder) Within the character's folder, you will find 5 files, one of which is the uo.cfg for that individual character. Apply the same settings as you did in the main uo.cfg file, close it and click Okay to save changes. You should be good to go. There are other methods and paths (for instance, Grond used C:\temp\grondjournal.txt for his JournalSaveFile= path), but this is the one I was taught and it works for me. The advantage of having the folder is that I can easily find it to check on the text file, which can fill up quite rapidly. A meg a week is not unusual...so keep an eye on it. You can either edit it, delete portions, move the entire text file to another location when you feel it's large enough (just by dragging and dropping it), or save it to floppy. If you do move the text file, just create another empty Journal.txt file within the folder, and the path will continue, uninterrupted. Hope this helped.
