    Sounds more like a network error than how EA deals with submissions...

    True its a network error, but they don't have the bug report, GM's in game wont help, and Chrissay has not responded either. So, how do I get them to know its a problem and needs to be addressed? I have emailed Chrissay as well, maybe he/she will get it. Don't know and don't think its going to be addressed.

    Well, best idea would be to try re-submitting it again and keep the thread about the bug bumped here. Chrissay probably gets a ton of PM's and emails from people here. Hopefully it will get some attention here and they can reproduce the bug somehow.

    Bumped the thread, and others are saying that they get the bug too. I don't think it hard to reproduce. ARRGGGHHH!!!!

    DId that too.. got the canned message, to submit via UO bugs email. Thats what sent me there to the email address that didnt work.

    I did get email back from Chrissay, they were experiencing network issues on their end when I submitted the emailed bug. But that is the last that I have heard.

    If that is a direct quote, "were experiencing" seems to imply it is fixed now. I hope you re-submitted it.

    Email a couple times a day till one goes thru. And relax man, it's not a big deal. It will get fixed and everything will be fine. :)

    I beg to differ. Potentially losing a CASTLE because of a bug with the placing tool is a big deal. I am lucky to have other accounts, and a friend that I could trust to take one of my houses.

    Or you could have dropped the house that got placed by accident, resized and replaced the castle. It would be tough to actually lose a castle.

    Just as soon as that "real" client is stable, I'm sure more people will start using it. As it is, it's not worth playing until they patch some of the issues with it. I'll gladly help them beta test it, but they've made no real improvements to it... made some gross unimprovements to it with keybindings in the last patch... and so I'll happily play 2D until the next round of real stuff to beta test.

    I mean, the client IS still in beta, so it can't possibly be the "real" client, now can it?

    yea having to redo a few macro's can be a challange for some and with 3 accouts a pain in the back side but that and the runebook problem are the onl biggy unless you redo you house regularly

    It's not so much a challenge than an inconvenience, particularly when you've taken the time to set up the playfield, macros, and key assignments the way you wanted them. Of course, I'm not really upset about it as I know the client's in beta... but the whole "use a real client" thing gets old when the client is incomplete and buggy. Which, of course, is why it's in beta.

    Other issues:
    - Items disappearing in backpacks which can only be seen in list mode.
    - Legacy backpack cursor sensitivity (yeah, I hate the grid and list system).
    - Random crashes for seemingly unrelated things.
    - Graphics very pixelated and frankly semi-blurry/fuzzy during movement (no, it's not my video card).
    - Books written in EC unreadable in 2D.
    - Issues with books jumbling text if you click through the pages too fast.
    - ...

    At any rate, there are numerous reasons I don't play it regularly. I'll be more than happy to once they correct the issues with it, and do something about the graphics (hopefully a retool of existing graphics in their existing styles at a higher resolution). And the graphics aren't keeping me away except for the way they move when I move, which frankly hurts after viewing them for extended periods of time.

    Believe me, I want to see the EC to succeed. They need to set it up for success though.

    Ya know, If I could use Enhanced client I would. Its not my machine or my connection. Its the simple fact that the 3d graphics make me sick as a dog. That is why UO is the only game I play, because I get motion sickness with 3d. OH, that is because I spent so many years on ships defending this great country and giving people like you the right to freedom of speech. I think i earn the right to say.... anything. God bless and have a good week.

    Wow! Someone used their patriotism card early.

    Anyways, thanks for selflessly defending my right to freedom of speech & country.
    You did this voluntarily & without pay? Thanks again.
     
  19. jfkeach

    jfkeach Guest

    If you think it is about the pay you are insane. They couldnt pay me enough to defend people like you, who have no respect for those that served. I did it because I remember seeing the coffins coming home from Vietnam, and knew from the time that I was 6 years old I would serve. Did you know that an E-5 qualifies for Food Stamps? Have you ever spent Christmas on the other side of the world away from all that you love? I have three Christmases in a war zone. When you do that, feel free to say anything you want about those of us that have.

    Maybe I didn't read his post right, but it doesn't look like he was trying to offend you. Instead it looks like he was saying thank you for your service...
     
  21. It is obvoius that you never served. If you had, you would know that the pay is often below poverty level if you have a family. As far as playing the "patriotisim card," the fact that you think there is one makes me sick.

    ps to my previous post:

    Thank you for your service. :)

    Yeah, I get your point. But the castle had 5 free lockdowns. To drop and resize would take two houses just to hold contents, so virtually impossible.

    Point is mute. In two days, I can transfer the castle back to the right account, and the 18x18 to the right account. I did however free up some storage space by throwing out all of the housing placement tools I had :) That is one bright side to this all. And I am now up to 1800 free lockdowns in the castle.

    you would pick and choose who you defend? surely you were fighting for his very own freedom to say these things to you as well 8)
     
  25. I can see how some people would get irritated by how jfkeach put his military service in a post where it wasnt the main topic but after all He can say what he wants and so can you.

    When I read Viper say ...You did this without pay....I assumed he meant he was paid to do it so who cares. After re-reading a few times, i think he meant it nicely.

    Veterans deserve the best because they gave their best when it was needed. It isnt done for money. Because you coul earn more at McDonalds. It isn't done for glory. Because there is a trade off when you see action. The reason I did it was just because it felt right. Its the best thing I ever did and I wouldnt trade it for anything. Sooooo jfkeach, thanks for doing the time and the same thing happens to me in 3d. Gotta love the Navy.

    I did not think it was about the pay. I was quite obviously being sarcastic.

    The fact is that your original "freedom of speech" response was IMO quite unwarranted.

    I am also quite sure that everywhere you go in life you probably beg for deference due to serving. Lol at that!

    You volunteered, you got paid. Did you think you werent gonna miss some holidays? Lol at that.

    E-5? If you served so long and hard and only obtained that rank/pay I feel sorry for you.

    Peace & thanks again for allowing me to make this speech quite freely :)

    jfkeach Guest

    Yeah, I noticed the sarcasm. That is why you got the freedom of speech response.

    I was trying to post why I can't play 3d. My equillibrium is all screwed up because of 8 years at sea.

    No I don't ask for deference because of my service.

    I did obtain a higher rank than E-5. Just pointing out that an E-5 is still below poverty level according to the standards set by the Federal Government.

    Yes, I volunteered. And would do it again. I volunteered for the Gulf, then voluntarily extended 12 months. Then terminated shore duty to go back to sea, just in time for desert shield/storm. And I cross rated to Navy Firefighter too. So not only did I make sacrifices to go to sea, but even when at home, I was still willing to help.

    Oh, btw, i bet it eats your shorts that I am now 100 Percent Service Connected Disabled, and I get paid to sit and play this game. My retiree card would be my Patriotism Card, and no, I did not wave it about, but for your enjoyment I will. Thanks for paying me to play this game and buying me that castle.

    Mods, can we lock this thread since it has gone so far from the point? thanks.

    Let me assure you, there is NOTHING 3D about the enhanced client. Nothing.

    I'm married to a veteran who proudly served in the USAF and is now Police. Your comment was out of place and when you throw it in there like that, it does a disservice to other veterans who actually NEED to remind people of their service, from time to time. You didn't earn the right to say "anything," your rights are the same as anyone else's.

    Fact #1 - Thread was 100% on point until you said this: - "OH, that is because I spent so many years on ships defending this great country and giving people like you the right to freedom of speech. I think i earn the right to say.... anything. God bless and have a good week"

    You said ALL of the above in response to this: - "You know if you used a real client the bug report button is on the main menu"
    An on point response to the OP. (maybe a bit harsh but def on point)
    So please spare us all the - "so far from the point" nonsense.

    Fact #2 - I called you out on taking the thread off point & using the bs patriotism card in response to an ON POINT post.

    Fact #3 - After being called out you not only went patriotically OFF POINT again you then threw in the handicap card.
    Whats next?
    Are you now gonna respond with the minority card?

    The simple fact is that the FIRST time someone posted something on point that you did not like you chose to respond off point and belittle the person by 100% wrongly implying that he owes his freedom of speech to you. Nobody owes their freedom of speech to you personally bud. Get over it.

    Who gives a rats arse what an E-5 makes? Food stamps? Are you freakin kidding me?

    Nice job though mentioning with obvious pride that all of us working tax payers are paying for you to not only play the game but also buy a castle :)
