Up until 6.0.8 I have patched just fine. After that I could never patch anymore, it always came up with the failed patch and "you may still be able to play" wording, on 3 different laptops. This was from an installation on a UO Gold cd. After this, I downloaded the UO ML online installation (the uoml_setup.exe that is 779,750KB). This DOES patch all the way through the most current patch, however, when I try to run it, the uo client comes up for about 1 second then disappears. The only way I've been able to get around this, is patching all the way to current with the uoml_setup.exe on a computer, that I install it but I can't play it ... and then I take the patched client.exe file and copy it to my 6.0.8 directory on a computer that won't patch, which works but I can't read any of the new properties on items. What am I doing wrong? other info ... operating system: windows xp professional service pack 2 directx 9.0c Anyone else with these problems or know how to fix it?
