    Cool video, though I got the feeling the section for Kingdom reborn had been edited to not show what it looked like, the video just seemed to jump at that point.

    Forgot to add that it was nice to see some of the box art from the earlier editions of UO.

    To view the entire KR Trailer:

    Ultima Online: Kingdom Reborn Trailer - YouTube

    I will admit, that while some of the things were omg awful, ALOT of the stuff was VERY cool.

    I loved the map, the expandable game window, the UI was...iffy, parts of it I liked. Overall I think they did a decent job attempting to create a new look, sad that it flopped because that was probably the best time I've ever had in this game is going through that entire event arc and figuring out the beetles rune language and getting through mazes and hearing Inu say Reborn...reborn..kingdom reborn and those lights going off in my head and everyone going OMG OMG OMG ....I will NEVER ever forget those days so KR to me, even though it didn't make it, is probably my best memories of UO.

    I'm glad Inu is still around, we talk alot ;)

    ...

    Personally, I'm simply glad it got a mention at all given the level of knee-jerk hate it got at the time. And yes, Larisa, regardless of opinion on the client itself, the timeframe for the game was probably one of the most active and exciting times the game has had outside of the first year or two when the entire concept was brand new and shiny. With the vision put forward, the events, and the promise that the new client had, it's also a time period that I will fondly remember very much on the level with those early days.

    I went back into my post history to see if I could find it but alas it's been lost.

    I still remember when I realized what Inu was talking about, when we figured out the web address for the new client....when we all went to the website and freaked out on the forums lol.

    I think my post was OMGOGMOGMAGOSGNOAJ I LOVE THIOS OMGA

    I couldnt even TYPE I was SO excited and Silvani quoted me and said BEST REACTION EVER


    After those months of events and deaths and black wisps and blue wisps and blackrock and Rune beetles and crazy ladies and traps and seeing people from all over helping, I've never seen so many people in one place at once time save for EM Events now..THOSE were amazing times and I give all the credit to KR :)

    I haven't even been around since day one...I came in after Malas was put in, I clearly remember the first person I met telling me I had to upgrade to get to his house...I had bought AoS from a second hand store for $8! lol

    So even though I don't have nearly as many memories as alot of you, I still have VERY good ones and I don't plan on leaving again. :)

    The one thing that I absolutely LOVED about KR..... was the ability it gave to allow you to Co-own every single one of your characters to each and every house you owned...

    I briefly had all 50+ of my characters co-owned to all 8 of my homes... life was great...

    And then ..... they destroyed it...

    I still have one house where 95% of my characters are still co-owners...

    I'm still hoping they fix the co-owner list to allow more than 10 per house... They now have blessed us with being able to be co-owned to more than one house now they need to fix the house to allow more than 10 co-owners... then we will be good.

    I keep hoping.

    EC is the compromise of both worlds. I could never go back to the 2D but I can see how some do love it, some people do not like to change what is comfortable to them.

    My main problem with the KR client when it arrived was the download that took 1 whole day to obtain after numerous failures and in the end using a download accelerator so i could do a resume on the download when it failed. Finally got it, installed the client and BAM the client was shockingly awful. It struggled to even run. Movement was so laggy it wasn't worth it.

    Yes some of the textures and terrains looked great, most creatures/monsters looked god awful - and in some cases still do in EC.

    I've tried to like the 3D client, I tried to like KR, and still to this day I still TRY to like the EC client.
