    If you don't load the KR client, you won't patch it.

    Does that mean that the CD that you buy will now be fully updated (when you have changed it =P)? Cos it will be quicker for me to wait and buy that than to download a 800 meg patch if that's the case [​IMG]

    Yay for treasure map fixes! =D
     
  5. Stink I just bought the CD a few months ago..Grrr

    Updated notes to add the reason the patch is huge, namely, that we fixed a vast wodge of broken animations.

    Hee hee, I'd be more than happy to buy a CD every few months if it means not having to download big patches [​IMG]

    Well done any way ... either way ... ummm ... anyway that anything gets either done and/or un-done ... [​IMG]

    Sorry - posted in the other thread. The KR patch is taking longer than expected to upload, I'll let you know if it's going to be held up too much longer.

    No more clouds drifting by lazily and not even as an option? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Add it to the list of "Should be a graphical option for those who want it" along with rain, weather in general, widescreen aspect and so on.

    BRING BACK CLOUDS!!

    Ok Why the HECK would you remove the clouds?
    Pretty annoying to have things removed from the game like that.

    As an option maybe - personally I'll be really glad to have them gone [​IMG] But I can see that some people would still want them

    Anything that's a graphical enhancement (i.e. weather/environmental effects, resolutions, and so on) should always be an option for the end user.

    If they take away all the cool enhancements then what was the whole point of upgrading the system?

    I for one hated the clouds, they made everything look dingy, but there should be an option for those who like the clouds.

    800 Meg downloaded and patched within 30 minutes... not too shabby. Better than a certain competitor's "torrent" method for certain.

    other than like seven bullets in a list, what all does this improve? :p how about the problem where any bar you drag becomes the bar of the last bar you dragged? :/ that fixed ;D?

    So far I haven't seen much in terms of undocumented fixes. Several of the issues I've posted in multiple places are still intact (grid lines breaking through their container gumps, gump offsets when you click and drag on them when you are swapping windows on a multi monitor setup, roof tiles are still not randomized as they were broken last summer, and so on).

    On the good side, the monsters do look better, the blue beetle has had a HUGE makeover, and I haven't seen any animation glitches.

    One improvement, the red solen warrior:
    [​IMG]

    MOST of the mount graphical glitches are fixes, some still remain.
     
  28. i love the animation fixes. Finally the ridables look pretty, especially the giant beetles.

    One thing i noticed: When you move below the side wings of a L-tower. All trees and the building, except the foundations disapear, looks like a (new) bug.

    Most of it is due to animation since they stuck with the 2d stop-motion animation style instead of using polygon frame/skin models.

    There are still weapons graphics issues. Just run with a crook and see what I mean... I was hoping those would be fixed as well. :\

    BTW, is it just me or does some of the art look 'sharper'?

    I noticed that as well, I'm not sure if it is or if I'm expecting it to be.

    I do know that the hues on creatures have more and darker contrast than before.

    The black ants look SWEET as well, Harpies are darker, haven't checked too many places yet, just some quick runs to favored haunts.

    The "twitch" seems to be GONE though which is good.

    Ultimately it was my decision to remove the clouds. *puts on flame retardant suit*

    The clouds as they were implemented didn't achieve the desired effect. They made the game significantly less bright which doesn't fit with the style of Ultima Online. We plan to bring them back in the future once we bring them in line with the overall feel of the game.

    Couple quick notes.

    Dropping items seems to be fixed (i.e. on the ground, possibly on to NPCs but I need to test this with a couple BODs).

    BUG: Freeform mode for personal backpacks does not seem to work at all. Cannot place something in my backpack if it is in freeform and object already in the pack are not visible.

    HOWEVER!!!!

    Testing freeform mode on house secures show that they now place items ACCURATELY within the container. Where you drop the item is where it goes! No more weird offset!

    Thanks for that Supreem. Rain as well?

    Just having them as an option would be appreciated [​IMG]

    thanks man for the updates, the beetle fix is good to know for such a large patch [​IMG]

    and hope KR continues interesting weather [​IMG]
     
  40. Beautiful!!! Just finished patching, and wow! Everything looks clearer. I didn't realize, that the blurry graphics were clouds. [​IMG]

    Now I know, they said, clouds will be back as soon as graphics are ironed out more, but I hope there will be the option to turn off clouds.

    I am from Hawaii, and you know how we hate clouds. [​IMG]

    Have to repeat again. Beautiful!!!
     
  41. EASupreme, I feel you made the right choice. The clouds were more of a drawback than a graphical treat, like the rain. I think the rain looked good enough to keep. Also, I would love to be able to toggle night effects for elves. I am missing out on the graphical treat of nighttime since I have mostly elf characters. And lastly, perhaps you could consider fog or mist effects in KR? Each effect toggle-enabled, of course. Thank you and keep up the hard work. It is most appreciated.
     
  42. do the hotkeys to open paperdoll and inventory gumps work now? still d/ling patch.
     
  43. I tried them to see if they worked yet, but no luck. I think I'll still be playing more on the KR client then the 2d thought it's really shaping up from when it first came out.
     
  44. Jeremy, would it be at all possible to bring back a numeric progress display for the UOAutoPatch program?

    Having a visual progress indication as well as the blue bar would enable me on my high-speed ADSL connection to determine whether the patch is going smoothly or whether it'd be worthwhile canceling and holding off for a bit.

    A transfer rate in kb/sec would also be nice, and could you please add in the MB size of the patch for future patches, in the notes for it. And if there's going to be an 800MB patch I would definitely like an option to opt out of it - instead of canceling - and get it another way, EG via a file transfer that supports download managers in the background, such as GetRight, etc.

    A note on download managers, I set mine so as to take as much advantage of the connection bandwith I have with multiple connections (so it totals around 160kb/sec down) however, provided it lets the manager have at least one connection to the server in cases of heavy load, that would be perfectly acceptable, if you decided not to let multiple connections download to the same PC from one site at the same time.

    One thing I would like with the KR patcher especially is to be able to have it downloading and go off and use the 2D client while I wait. I don't understand why this shouldn't be possible.

    Cheers ...

    Things like clouds and weather can only add lag to the game. Lag kills.

    [/ QUOTE ]Any "lag" caused by the clouds is only client-side...
    If your computer can't handle displaying the clouds, then it's a problem. If your computer can, then it's tasty eye-candy. Hence the suggestions that it be an option,
    Also, lag doesn't always kill.
     
  48. Well like kiminality says, that's going to be more client side. Having the option to take away/add it to the game would make it more fair for everyone. Players with low end computers wouldn't be forced to have them in, so that will reduce any lag, while others with higher end systems maybe able to have the option enabled without increasing lag because of the better hardware.

    Actually, the clouds were one of those features that really annoyed me. Please, when you bring them back; make them a feature you can disable. I like the concept of clouds. I didn't like clouds.
