    Another "old vet, starting up again" question. For the many years I played UO, I always had UOAssist. Since I haven't played in probably 6 years.. is UOassist still a necessity or have they improved the client to incorporate the benefits of UOAssist directly into the official client?

    Well that depends on which client you are using. If you are using the Classic Client, then no, the features from UOAssist were not incorporated over the years. If you were to use the Enhanced Client, well its built in functionality actually surpasses UOAssist, it's just many members of the community find it to be visually displeasing.

    If you are using your same account from years past you can still look up the code and use UOA without having to pay again.

    Yep that's what I did.

    If you want to use UO Cart you need UOA, and there are some macros (Like the dress macro) you can't do in the CC. That's the main reasons I use UOA.

    You SIR are to be congratulated, that is about the most diplomatic explanation I have ever read describing both of the UO clients. BRAVO

    I've never used a third party program (although I've used mythic tokens and plenty of pink scrolls to help build my characters). It's not e necessity, just something extra if you really feel you need it.

    I only play in classic client. My number one use for uo assist is sorting bags. I think ec can do this automatically, but in classic few things are as hellish as picking individual small pieces of blackrock out of your pack.

    My main uses of UOA is the information bar at the top, and thread, yarn, and cloth making macroes that use 10 items up per run. With arthritis, less mousing is a good thing, particularly when it's boring repetition instead of distracting action.

    Not sure if I'd buy it for a new account these days since they changed the crafting windows to do multiples years back. Since that change UOA's macroing isn't all that useful anymore.

    True statement tanivar, I forgot how awful raising smith was in 2001. I now remember that was why I got uoassist initially, and mostly stopped using it after that skill was raised.

    Hi. Is there a way to have your char "follow the cursor" on CC without using UO Assist? I may have to go without UOA and am worried because I haven't found a way to do this without it... any one can help, thanks.

    Left click while moving and your character will follow the cursor until you stop moving and right click.

    Check out the http://stratics.com/community/threa...ne-know-little-known-cc-game-commands.344743/ thread on the first page of Uhall.

    @Tanivar Yes the info at the top is very useful and with the change to the crafting make items is all great, I have macros to fill every small BOD there is. That is the only thing I use UOA for anymore, filling BODs.

    My dress macro works with or without UOA in CC....I double click my corpse! I am standing next to it anyway when I get rezzed! :)

    @Lord Frodo Something else I have set up on UOA are macros to load and fire each cannon on my ship. Haven't been out mugging merchants for a while. :pirate:

    @Tanivar UOA may not have as much use as it did when it first came out but there are still somethings that it saves a lot of steps doing esp. for us older people.

    Uoa on cc is still the best and only legal alternate program that you can use.

    hold down the right mouse button and then click the left mouse button to engage cursor follow mode (let go of the left mouse button first) - been that way since day one

    to shut off cursor follow mode, just click the right mouse button
