Macros: Problem

    Greetings...

    I use the num pad for my main macros.
    After this patch they stopped working.

    I tried to redo them... and saved.
    Nothing happens... no change even in the uo folder where the macro file is supposed to be...
    (aye I looked hard for changes, redid all my macros... nothing changes, looked everywhere... nothing)

    Some of my macro files are read only... (since 99)
    I change them manually...
    Now, they are just there... but the macros dont show on the character...


    One weird detail... the new made macros work ok... except they dont show anywhere... !

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you.

    "Question

    Why won't my macros save?


    Answer

    Some people like their character name. They like it so much that they make more then one character with that same name. However, this may cause problems with macros getting deleted. If you encounter this issue, you might have to perform the procedure described below.

    Setting up your macros in your default directory if you have two characters with the same name:

    1. Click the Start button on the Windows Taskbar.
    2. Click My Computer.
    3. Double-click the C: drive.
    4. Double-click the Program Files folder.
    5. Double-click the Ultima Online folder.
    6. Double-click the Desktop folder.
    7. Double-click the folder that has your account name.
    8. Double-click your shard folder. (Once inside your shard folder you will see folders with your character names.)
    9. Right-click the folder(s) of the characters with multiple names and select Delete. (This will not delete the character, it will simply delete any current macros that character has.)
    10. Log into the shard with just one of the characters that has the duplicate name.
    11. Set up all the macros you want BOTH characters to have.
    12. Log out.
    13. Repeat steps 1 through 8.
    14. The character folder should have now recreated itself.
    15. Double-click the folder with the character name.
    16. Right-click the macros.txt file and select Copy.
    17. Repeat steps 1 through 5.
    18. Right-click on an empty section in the Ultima Online folder and select Paste. (It will ask you if you wish to replace an already existing file; select Yes.)

    You should now be able to log into either character at any time and keep those set default macros."
