    Hi:

    I re-installed UO today and downloaded the classic client...im having two problems i cant figure out and hope somebody can help...

    1) When I mouse over myself or anyone/anything else the description is to the left and not above what I mouse over. How do you make the description move to above the targeted item?

    2) The command Ctrl-Shift dosent work anymore, it used to show a all names type fuction that worked for all items.

    I've been trying to figure out how to fix these issues and i havent been able to do it...any help would be awesome...

    Thanks
    Wo

    1) There is a setting in the options, if I remember right. You'll need to fiddle with that til you get it right.

    2) As far as I know, there's no setting for this, and I just had my husband check it, since he's logged in, and it's workin fine for him, so not sure what's going on there.


    Sorry I can't be more help, but welcome back to UO :)

    bring up Options, go to the upper right one that looks like a mouse, scroll the scrollbar down till you see "Object Handles" - make sure it's checked

    Holding down the ctrl and shift buttons works just fine to show object tags? As I said, I just made my husband try it, cos he's logged in just now :p

    Press Alt O,
    See the Top right hand tab that looks like a mouse.
    Scroll down about half way, see Item Properties Display Mode
    Make sure Follow Mouse has black dot in it..
    Press Apply upon completion then Okay

    Ya should be good to go now :thumbsup:

    At least people are offering you help. Don't be rude or you won't get anyone even trying to help you.

    The 2d client is the only half decent client UO has.

    If his UI is not on 2D then it's garbage...

    Can we not turn this into a client war?

    If you aren't able to offer a helpful answer to the OP's question, don't troll his thread.
     
  14. Anyone have a link to a good 2d classic client for download? I tried using an old CD and patching and also tried downloading the one from uo.com. Right when I log in, the screen stays black and I'm not able to do anything. Any help is appreciated!
