    My client was totally messed up so uninstalled and reinstalled it tonight.

    Now my classic client login screen says UO version 7.0.5.0 (patch 17)!!!

    What the heck? My Sis's says 7.0.5.0 (patch 80).

    What happened to my other 63 patches???

    How do I fix this? Any help is appreciated.

    If you can still log in and play just fine, don't worry about a number displayed on the login screen.

    That seems to be normal for you.

    Your sister installed from a disc ages ago and has had 80 patches to reach the current patch number.
    You have re-installed from the download on uoherald, which is a newer version and therefore needs fewer patches to reach the current patch number.
    (my guess)
    As long as the patch number 7.0.5.0 is the current one you're good to go.

    Only 63 missing? My Classic client reads UO Version 7.0.5.0 (Patch 95)...

    Works just fine, I agree with Petra something in the client is recording how many patches it's applied to it's 'base' installation, rather than telling you an absolute 'version' of the client you are running.

    (Note for EA/Mythic - as far as I can find on the UOHerald website, the last client version there's any mention of appears to be 7.0.4.3 . Would not hurt much to keep an up to date note of which client version we should be running somewhere on the front of the site, just so people know....)
