    Hello,

    I started playing back in 2001, but left in 2004 as I recall. Came back today just to have a look around and managed to reactivate my old account...no training from the begining again :)

    A lot has changed, but I'm still on the classic client.

    Any tips for someone coming back to Europa server?

    Can't seem to make Ultima Mapper work...it doesn't update my current position. I wonder what could I be missing? Also I can't get more than 800x600 on my window, but it seems like that's a general problem and not just me.

    Thanks

    Welcome back :) you have chosen a great shard to return to. Minerva Foxglove has a wonderful new player center which has good information for returning players also. It is just down from the Trinsic gate. To find people for help, is to tell people in the help chat and/or general chat, that you are a returning player. Webs sites that have great information are here( Stratics)and uoguide .com. I use mapper also. Check under view (it is the arrow on the right of the marker button. Make sure it is on the right location, if not change it. Then on the first menu, the last two buttons are next and refresh. Click each once. Hopefully this works for you. If not check the ultima mapper web site.

    Welcome back. You can also ask for help from @MadMartyr, who created Ultima Mapper.

    Thanks for the help, I'm looking into it.

    Maybe it should have activated something on the Mapper before using it? Also I recall having read somewhere that I should use UO Assist along with the mapper. Is it a requirement?

    I can't remember using Mapper last time though...I think before it was Auto-Map or something. Is the Mapper from the same team?

    I guess Auto-Map was shut down then and Mapper is much better?

    Kind of strange...it just stands over Britain and shows my full health...even though I'm not there!

    I'm pretty sure I got something wrong in the setting or setup. Is there any guide for this?

    Auto-map stopped being supported, aye. Mapper is great, but there's something not communicating properly with yours. I'm not familiar with it, so I'd have to rely on MadMartyr.

    There are people around, but well spaced out. You'll find a group of Vets at WBB each evening for an hour 6pm UK, usually finishing with a spellweaving circle at 7pm. Shout out in help chat and you're pretty sure to get an answer. Sometimes that answer might even come from me.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Things are much more different now. IT used to be booming with people selling stuff at that time and place...

    So I am wondering how do I get recall scrolls now...any advice on a good shop with a bit of everything?

    I used to have lots of shops on my rune books but I see most are empty now...

    Mim foxglove's New Player House is full of books explaining all kinds of things, plus some simple vendors. From there you can find a house teleporter to RAA guild shop. Some npc mage shops sell recalls, Haven and Moonglow if I remember right. Also you might like to find your way to the uo Europa board http://stratics.com/community/forums/uo-europa.51/

    It was an adventure by itself, I can tell you that! But now that I know how to do it, it's easy!

    1) Go to the "UO official website" and go to "Account Management" where you will be redirected to the new Mythic website.
    2) Type in your details from the old account (Email and password) and they will link the accounts!
    3) You will find a page and under the "Subscriptions" tab and you will have the chance to reactivate any old Ultima Online accounts that you had connected to that exact email!

    That's it, it's simple even tough it doesn't look like it.

    If by any chance you are like me and had an old email which no longer exists associated with the Ultima Online account then it get slightly trickier.

    1) You will need to go to the "Mythic webpage".
    2) Click on "Forgot your EA account password?" below the password insertion area and you will be redirected to the "Origin website".
    3) Under "Home/My Account", go to "About Me".
    4) On the "Basic Information" area click on "Edit" and simply change your email to the one which you would like to have associated to your account.
    5) You're done!!!

    Hope this helped ;)
