    Ok guys, I´m soooo tired of being paged upon for not replying to some of you losers who have nothing better to do than playing UO police from your mom's basement.

    So, in the hopes of finally getting some quality macroing time in, here is my setup. Now leave me alone, k?

    (And for the slow ones: No, this is not my setup, I only immediately thought of UO upon seing this)

    sounds like your obviously hurt by this. So why don't you respond. Because you want to come to Uhall after wasting GMs time and pointlessly complain about something you could have avoided?

    Or you could take the ****ing 2 seconds out of your precious time that it takes to type "sup" and hit enter?

    Wow the OP hit a nerve eh?

    What's worse is the ppl who page on me from outside my house. They have no idea if I am actually sitting here or not. They page with the *hope* of me being AFK. It's THOSE types of people who should have their paging ability taken away IMO.

    That's kind of my setup though I use a KVM switch to switch between my pc's and servers. Also I have a 37 hdtv in the backgroubnd connected 2 my second card where my third monitor is connected to have a better view. I do need to get some larger lcd though and the desk I use is a L shape clear glass desk. I don't like wood desk for some reasson.

    That setup is even better :D

    That would be more people than there are on Origin, eh?

    And for the really slow people: Yeah, with that disclaimer, it´s not like I could have been kidding or anything, no? FFS, I wish someone would actually page on me and a GM talk to me, because in 10 years, I have never seen one.

    No one has to speak in the game, If they want to craft at the bank in peace it's their choice, To assume silence = scripter is just stupid.

    If they are crafting in the first place it's very likely they wouldn't see any speech because of the large windows.

  20. This.

    If I'm minding my business crafting, sorting through my bags, cleaning out my bank or whatever the heck else I could possibly be doing in the game, I don't feel like I have to 'prove' to anyone else what I'm doing.

    Obviously, many people just don't have enough crap to do in their life...busy-bodies like my Grandma.

    Why does everyone complain about the scripters?

    I say keep on keeping on.

    I like buying imbuing ingredients cheaply and not having to get them myself.

    I like the low cost of other resources and not have to play a mule.

    I like finding dexers that script their apples, pots, and bandaids so I can screw up their script and beat them more easily.

    I often don't reply to players; i just watch them ask dumb ass questions and say dumb things. It actually brings the uo experience down to talk to certain people and answer all their noob questions. I talk to all my friends in vent and chat that way. Call me a scripter or whatever. I answer gm pages occasionally due to this approach but so what. I cannot stand interacting with some of these tools.
     
  24. You know, it's like this.....there's a certain mentality in the game, I've realized this.....if you don'y say anything, wham, you're a scripter. Before you know a GM comes along wants to see your ID, your papers, ...oooops, different topic.......seriously, to avoid the BS and aggravation, I can and will say "hey"

    My fire bug, he's named "ImHere"

    I know we don't have to say anything, there's no law saying you have to, but it's like anything else in life.....know when to open your mouth and when to keep it shut.

    I see both sides......know how many times I say hi, good morning.....at my vendor and get the cold shoulder prior to a recall?? Too many.

    Oh well. It is what it is.

    If someone doesn't want to talk they don't have to. Period. Don't like it? Tough luck, move one, page, do whatever the heck you want.

    I look for IDOCs sometimes.. and it's pretty funny to see people jump out of their house as soon as you come on screen because they don't want you to page on them when they're there.
     
  27. maroite

    For one thing, talking while using the EC can break your macro. Some, but not all. Depends on what you're doing.

    There is a huge difference between players macroing skills in their houses, and scripters. Stupid people who report people for macroing skills in there houses need to get a life and stop ruining the game.

    Over the past week or so, after getting an 18x18 plot outside Zento, I have had a person come by my house and page on my inscription character, for being in the house and working it up. They never even said anything to me, just paged. I have two accounts so I usually macro skills on one in the background while playing the other. Note I position the screens so I can still see chat on the background one.

    Regardless, I got lucky and a GM actually came to see if I was there, and I saw his chat. This has happened about 3 times now in the past week, so the next time I saw this person run by, stop at my house, and run the parameter, I paged on them for harassment.

    Haven't seen them since. :lol:

    Whats more amusing is that I use the basic EC and where it has macros that you can loop 10 times, and put lots and lots of repeating lines in one loop, eventually it will end. I also haven't found a decent way to macro crafting, so for crafting I have to check every so many mins, or even seconds with my inscription person since she doesn't have huge mana reserves.

    Some people will just never grow up.

    what i find amazing is people here are allowed to attack and belittle those that report "suspected" cheats

    these same people(may) have friends that actively cheat and script, and admit that knowledge on icq, yes they still attack those that report (fact)

    is this a method of trying to get the problem players out the way

    proved again here, i have a post removed yesterday because i dare to speak out agaisnt such people,

    in my opinion, if you cheat, or know FRIENDS that cheat and do nothing, or actively PROFIT from those cheats, YOU ARE GUILTY TO


    i have named no namess here or attacked anybody

    I KNOW YOU THEY KNOW WHO THEY ARE


    so please do NOT speak out and judge others, as YOU are guilty as sin


    and YES you can do something, i have discarded MANY "friends" in UO when i have discovered they are cheats

    what you have to think about with all YOUR ill gotten gold, is others that do not want to or actively cheat are sadly victims of this as they buy your items

    I just cannot wait for the 3rd party detection system to come out, after the stockpiles of goods that are being routinely scripted NOW run out, all these shops will be empty and no explaination why

    but WE will know


    this post is as a result of what i have SEEN and not a generalisation

    my point, if people have a feeling something is not as it seems, and if YOU are a good player and get "disturbed" by a GM, take comfort that people care enough to try and get rid of cheats. a % are, and do get dealt with, "wasting" GM time is a poor arguement aswell, i for one WANMT them following up and removing cheats

    this is what i do what i am exploring the land.

    if i see many players recalling and moiving to the same tile, same speed, like clockwork, jump off a moving beetle...
    if i see a house with boxe son the steps with insane amounts of weight in it i will take notice.....
    trapped tamed or wild animals used for training......

    if i see a player following a routine pattern, that looks to be looping continuosly i will watch in stealth and make up my mind, i ONLY report if i am as sure as i can be that something is afoot

    if i see things like this, i.e people following instructions as to how to "run" a 3rd party prog i WILL make it known (also i spend time reading the script sites, i find it quite fun reading the instructions and matching the script to the player) sad, yes i suppose but makes me SURE

    this also helps with the monotony of idoc searching:), i aslo gate friends in aswell to observe and get their opinions, just to be sure
    if you get a ban, GOOD

    for far too long people have gotten away with this with little fear of action

    the tide has turned watch out. if you are doing wrong you WILL be found out sooner or later


    it just takes a few mins to report and i am on my way, gone are the days where i wait . report and go, if needs be i can fire up my second acct and report others i see while my page is active

    I AM NOT THE BAD GUY HERE, the plague of cheaters out there are the ones that should feel like sh*t not players like me

    i have 2 mule chars that mine, lumber, water plants, tinker, smith and tailor and i have NEVER been paged upon

    simply because i do NOT arouse suspision

    enough said

    sadly i give this 5 mins before its gone

    no personal attack, no names but this will still be gone, and i will prob get yet another warning

    how dare i speak out

    Jack makes a very valid point, and one I agree with. I would only page on someone who I'm pretty darn sure is scripting.

    Such as the case with a house on one of the islands in Felucca I found a while back, there were four players there scripting, I watched them for 20 minutes, called my friend in for his opinion as well. I also showed myself, spoke, went in to war mode, summoned a daemon, and not once did they do anything other than what they were doing when I originally came across them. A small box house with no deco, one entrance, private. All the tell-tale signs of someone scripting on a few accounts.

    Thankfully after a few hours, the page was answered. Now the house is gone. :)
     
  31. This. :thumbup1:
     
  32. It's people like you that make me craft while hidden in my house. When crafting I can't see anything past all of the menus and containers/packs I have open so I can fill bods or do whatever. I most likely won't notice you, and 9 times out of 10 can't see the red lettering that is the GM's speech because of my color vision. So.......I will continue to craft while hidden, and will continue to ignore everything else while I'm doing it, since I can't see past the menus. Please feel free to leave me the **** alone while I'm doing so. :gun:

    IF i saw you i am VERY sure i would not even stop, there is a difference between crafting in your house and running a script in your house.IF i did stop to watch, i would prob only take a few secs to see that you are not actually doing anything wrong

    your char behaves very differently when attanded, not robotic or perfectly timed for HOURS at a time, scripting skill gains and making things are different


    tell you what, if oyu are on europa, gimme a buzz, when i see something suss i will give you a call , you come decide

    MAYBE NEXT TIME READ THE WHOLE POST
    then you will see players like you are NOT what i find so appalling aobut this game
     
  34. I did read the whole thread (not post). I also know that regardless of what you may think and/or say, these vigilantes that you are praising so highly have paged on me before, and caused me undue troubles because of it.

    Apologies, thread :)

    well i can only speak for myself, like i say i make sure that something is def wrong before i page

    i want the game free of 3rd party running cheats, i believe long term, get rid of cheats and player will return

    that is my motivation, not to grief players donig their thing, and like i said, i don't want to goods that are tarnished

    my offer stands if you are in Europa

    did you ever stop to think that you might be ignored because unless you look like you might have something interesting to say or that you might have a request or job offer that will pay more than the custom suit or weapon set I'm working on to make me stop and give any of my attention.
    so yes you aimless twits I am at my key board enjoying my game so go away now before I taunt you some more.
    if all you want to do in life is go around looking for someone to make trouble for I'm sure there is an elementary school near you that needs a hall monitor, go be usefull and leave the world of uo behind,bully a third grader for your fun.

    well i will let the "renegades" answer that one, ignoring others is not a crime and i also do this when i am making things

    ignoring others does not get my attention when i am out enjoying the game

    But thats illogical. We all know it's imposiible as examples of all online games out there. But we also know it's completely illogical to beleive enough players would return to even make a difference. People come back cause the game not any other reason. If they like nostagia and don't mind paying for it they would be here already. As long as there will always be free alternatives for the old school nostagia people then there is no justification to come back to a game with a dwindling population.
    As we know there is alot more pvm players than pvp players. Though because the changes lately this will eventualy not be true anymore. PVM players are less concern what other do than pvp players. They only few people actualy returning would be pvp players and there be very few.
    This is the most logical conclusion anybody can come up with. Having faith and wishful thinking does not change the basic logic of every underlying cause in the UO world.
    The ones who hated AOS are gone never to return which was the majority of the PVP players. PVM came in and took over the subscription numbers. They will also be gone once they cap out as well. Not enough new players to ofset numbers. Once loss of profit of 1 quarter cut backs will be done. 2 quarters layoff,3rd quarter subscription raises or more item sales,4th quarter straigt would equal plans to shut of all cost including extra sservers. Eventualy another loss and they might close it down completely. Though we still making some profit so we continue to go. EA acc mngs only care about numbers they have no emotional ties to anything UO and will force the DEV to do things to see if things go better in turn probably ruin more of the game in process.

    Oh well we will see eventually. We still have content to keep us occupied for at least the remainder of this year.

    just a hope, I read so many posts here of players saying they will return if scripting is sorted out, of ocurse i have now way of telling if they will, just a hope

    i must say i don't venture around as much since SA came out, jsut love all aspects of the expansion

    but i do get sickened when i see small 7x7 plots with heavy chests(1,2 MILLION STONES) tucked right out of the way with mutliple chars recalling in dumping (dropping Blackrock in piles outside, as per script instruction i might add, i KNOW cos i have read the script in the site we cannot say!) recalling away, rinse and repect LIKE CLOCKWORK.
    i proved something was wrong in the past as i stood on the recall spot and with my second acct found the miner spamming recall for at least 20 mins while we waited for a GM, of course the miner and the chest are long gone, soon the small house will fall

    lets hear poeple explain that one to me?

    Exactly. I used the EC to craft, when crafting I MINIMIZE my chat window all the way as i have no use for it and want my screen for bags/menus etc. I have Team Speak to talk to guild members as we rarely use guild chat in game anyways.

    My warrior is outgoing, by nature, somewhat of an egotistical ahole at times. But my crafter is a naive, quite person who wont reply to anyone unless he is in need of supplies. He is so lonely he depends on his mage friend to sell his wares in Luna.

    I once seen a post the other day about someone recalling into the Cavern of the Discarded. From the facts the poster presented the person was obviously scripting. PAGE ON THEM. But if i am at the smiths, or even more IN MY HOUSE, bug off and leave me alone.

    If i am ever to be considered "unattended" its because i turned my head for 2 seconds to change the pampers on my kids. Anything more and i stop what i am doing in game.

    Thank you to the poster of this thread for bringing this up. Sometimes there are scriptors that would use this as a ploy to prove innocence but WITHOUT any other facts other than "They didnt say hi back to me Mr GameMaster! They must be scripting!" Then it is a bunch of BS to page.

    :thumbup1:im sure the plural is meeses isnt it? heard on tv before
    oh and i agree with jack, but whats an EC??
    i think many people are fed up with scripting and the lack of action and i sure ea let it go because of subscription so how about a partial solution,
    ea give an amnesty to banned accounts but then and this is the nice part, they police the community more effectively actively rather than passively.

    @Yen Sid: You sound lonely :D Show me 10 players on Origin that are in one place and actually playing. Please. I´d really love to see that since Origin is the only shard I play...
