KR assistance

    Over the past couple of weeks about half a dozen people have asked me in game for assistance on KR.

    For those of you who have it and are not playing because it seems a touch daunting to relearn a new client I was wondering if you would be interested in some 'Learn KR' lessons 'in game'. It would include stuff like:

    *going through the menu's what each of the tabs mean, what each of the settings does etc.
    * how to set waypoints on your maps, how to put in tmap and sos locations
    * how to set up macro's and actions, help in creating dress, equip, 'say', healing, mining, fishing, crafting, spell and training macros.
    * how to set up templates that you can copy to your characters.


    Although all is pretty much covered on Spellweave.com on the KR link, it seems that 'showing' on a more individual basis makes it a lot easier for some to learn it as a lot of people find it easier to 'do' rather than 'read' stuff, plus you don't get the frustration if it doesn't work first up and you can ask what you are doing wrong etc. A lot of you may have had problems with it when it first came out and haven't been back since. If so maybe you want to give it another go? I know a lot of the bugs that were in it to start with have been addressed so if you haven't been in it in a while I think you might be surprised with some of the changes.

    If a few people are interested I am happy to run something out of the Emporium auction house in Luna in the evenings or on the weekend for a couple of hours at a time to help anyone who wants it. Perhaps those 'miners' out there would like to see how darn quick KR is to mine and how simple it is to set up, stuff like that.

    If you haven't run KR in ages or even 'ever' then you would need to be up to date with the current patches. Other than that if you are totally 'new' to KR I think I can get you up and running in one or two sessions now I am pretty much familiar with it and that is really all you need to take the 'pain' out of it lol.

    Anyways, any feedback is welcome before I set aside some time and dates.

    Regards

    First lesson i need is where to download it.

    I refuse to pay to join a downloading site, so forget the ones advised from UO.com. Id also prefer it to be downloaded from Auz cos that makes it faster right?

    I just spent the last 2 days downloading from fileplanet.com for it to say there is an error and i cant use it. Had to delete the lot...

    Is it true the latest patch is 831 Mb? Or did I misread last time I tried to patch KR. Maybe it was 83.1 Mb?

    Jah try downloading the KR torrent, its a much more reliable way to download a large program such as KR, wont get any errors.

    To use torrent files you will need a torrent download manager, i sugest utorrent.

    http://www.utorrent.com/download.php - uTorrent download manager.

    Once you have that installed, download the KR torrent file and open it with uTorrent to start the download.

    I originally downloaded it in the beta but used a free file download program due to the difficulty getting it, think i used 'get right' and used the free 'trial version' least that way if the download lags out or stops it resumes again.

    You can buy the disk from uo now tho and I think I read somewhere recently that that last 800 mb patch will be included on it.

    If your connection is that bad maybe it is worth the 20 bucks or whatever it costs.

    Edit: you can get the disk here: KR DVDrom says the disk is free but for all orders they want you to pay for postage, costs 8.99 for international orders.

    As far as I'm aware, teh patches aren't included on the dvd at the moment

    When I bought the DVD last (and I believe it hasn't been updated since then) I still had to download a couple hundred megs I reckon, and then there'll eb the latest patch too.

    I'm waiting for them to announce the updated disc before I order again. Jeremy did say they were going to try and get it updated.

    I did find a way to at least play KR without the 800 meg patch, though I havent been using it much lately (havent been playing much lately for that matter =P)

    What the heck was in the patch that needed 800 mb?! I'm on ADSL but that is still absurd.

    One thing they fixed was the graphic for the giant beetle, so now my biggest complaint about the client is gone lol. Gee I so hated that thing. They also fixed the movement of how stuff 'flies' gargoyles etc look really great now and much superior to how they were, a lot of stuff was 'tidied' up, they also did something to the speed and some of the crashing bugs I think, as I hardly ever have a crash, now I have no more than in 2d and my speed seems to have been really improved etc.

    I might wait a while and see if they update the disk. I actualy got the disk when they first brought it out, but my bf threw it out cos he's a clueless idiot.... ha!

    Oh and let me have a winge about somthing else....

    Why cant they make somthing so big on a 'play off the disk' setup? Wouldnt that make it run easyer?
