    For a couple weeks now I have not been able to patch UO. I get the error message tward the end of the patch I believe. Even though I have deleted the files in the patch folder this problem presists. Until today I was still able to connect to UO, now though I am getting the unable to communicate with origin message. These could be two unrelated events, but Id like to get the error patching fixed ASAP. Any one who could help would be greatly appreciated.

    I had the same problem trying to reinstall from the ML cd. Only thing that worked for me is I changed the default directory that it wanted to install into.

    error ept0036:

    Old File not found. However, a file of the same name was
    found. No update done since file contents do not match.

    This is in my patchlog. I searched for it in the knowledge base but it was not found = (

    I had this happen just 2 days ago. I patched about 90%, then it locked up. Error. I restarted and it patched rest. This was on a fresh install on my desktop

    Mines not a fresh install, and the rest isnt patching = (

    I was thinking though, i did do a system restore after a patch i believe. This may have stemmed the problem as well.

    If you havent tried this yet:

    Delete the patch folder, not just the contents. Then use the system cleanup to clear all temp files. Then defrag. Then try to patch again.

    Hmm. my brother had a patching error once on his computer i found out he was running a hack.. not sure what you guys want to call it.. but he was using something that allowed him to see things differently? anyways.. i switched back to old files and it worked.. then again i had an issue on my computer because i was running windows 2k os... i don't think any of that useless bit of information will help you.. but goodluck getting that fixed....
