Secret of PK's They Use To Kill You

Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by Dai Deneg, Jul 18, 2009.

    One thing I noticed about PK's that kill me really quick - is that they use the KR client.

    Just realized it when I logged into UO with KR client myself and ran around a little bit - the way it cuts the "corners" while your run is just unbelievable.

    It makes you move faster than 2D client and allows for smooth running through forests, takes shortcuts, etc.

    Is that really so or am I just making stuff up?

    Anyone tested? :danceb:

    I wish I could test it, but KR is not a option anymore for me.

    If you have the settings correct, it's a much faster smoother client than the old one.

    It does have vastly superior pathfinding, the SA client however beats the KR one hands down. It has several of the things that lack of stopped me playing KR, like the ability to store a target, such as a pet to bandage, or an item to use.

    Whoa! So SA is a whole new client, different from KR? I did not know that! I thought SA was just an expansion for KR. :dunce:

    PKs dont use KR for one very good reason. UOA. Every PvPer loves UOA.

    Although KR has less lag, and less client side restrictions. Such as you can do most things as fast as you can. I noticed on crafter when turning spools into cloth, i set a macro and just hold the button down. And it goes. Where as the 2d client you get the "must wait to perform another action" error.

    I just tried the SA client - it's a lot faster than KR...


    I just wish the 2d had the pathfinding of SA.

    Perfect mix. :danceb:

    Lol i agree with jack as in this is the dumbest idea of yours i have ever heard :p as long as 2d is available i will always use that for pvp and im sure most of the good reds on this shard will too. (not trying to say that im a good red :p)

    Well if they were running KR, all you would haft to do is keep the run up for more than 5 minutes and they would crash, hehe

    Raccoons are cuddly even if we will bite a nipple off given the chance.

    Patty, SA is miles better than KR, even at the very beginning of its beta testing. I was able to duplicate just about every macro I had on my Europa tamer, the only compromise I had to make is at the moment you can't set a macro to the mouse wheel, there are set options for that at the moment, zoom or targeting. You can set one to the wheel 'click' though.
    On my old machine I run it windowed but with 'show frame' off. I don't know why they don't mention that option more, it makes a phenomenal difference to the amount of lag on my pc. Makes it go from unplayable to pretty damn good.
    The biggest difference to KR, I think, ui wise, is the ability to store a target. So I can shove some bandies in a hot bar slot, store target as my pet, tie it to a key and heal it as I would with uoa, with bandage count and timer too.
    I can even put the recall/gate spell in a hot bar slot and set it 'stored' to my runebook then recall/gate to the default either by double clicking the box or setting it to a key.
