    I always assumed that a majority of players still use the Classic client, but it seems like most of the screenshots and videos that I see posted come from the Enhanced client. Has the Enhanced client become more popular or are its users just a visible minority? Would anyone go so far as saying that the Enhanced client is now the preferred client?

    The enhanced is fine if you use the Pinco UI.

    Classic, though the EC was nice for High Seas. EC is still on my laptop backup game setup but I've dumped it off my desktop computer. Nice bells and whistles but not a good UI from my viewpoint.

    And unless they provide a legacy graphic option in EC I'll rather quit than change.

    classic

    i downloaded the new client and gave it a fair try , honestly i did. not sure if its the new layout or just its general looks, i just dont like it . yeah im using pinkos . i like how pinkos tells you if an item is or is not a relic frag. i must point out that that is not 100 percent accurate either, but its nice to sort large amounts of loot. (i try anything pinkos says is close)

    oh speaking of large amounts , i suppose its useful for high level treasure map chests , you dont have to pick everything up with the grid view , just take the good stuff and destroy the chest. altho the hard part is the initial half a dozen monster spawn burst , by the time you get to sorting the junk its pretty easy to kill one thing at a time . so i suppose thats just laziness kicking in. =)

    id never survive the initial burst in enhanced. yeow. i generally solo these so i always do the burst on classic , then if im feelin lazy switch over to enhanced to sort things. altho ive gotten some ok items off the individual spawn so i usually just let it ride . if ive got people along ill even drop one item over and over back into the chest to farm up some critters for them to kill . they seem to like that. so enhanced rarely gets played .

    another thing that bugs me is the interface between clients , im sure everyone has seen what vendors look like if they arent set up in classic view , you can get the same affect in a trade window . i bought 3 sands of sosaria off someone recently and i only saw 2 in the window. he says its there im just using enhanced. i took his word that it was there, and it was, but little glitches like that annoy me.

    Classic here too.

    But I have been playing around with the enhanced client as of recently. The main thing that puts me off is I seem to rubber band off more objects than I do in Classic. On the flip side it does have some nice touches. ;)

    I suppose I should try EC (I did not know what that meant the first time I heard it last week). I tried KR when it came out and hated it. Is there something about EC that makes it better than KR? Are they the same thing?

    The only real plus I see to the EC are the bells & whistles the Devs gave it trying to make it attractive to us, and particularly what Pinco did with it was fantastic. Many like it and swear by the EC.

    Personally I don't like it as a UI in spite of all it's bells & whistles. It was great for High Seas due to the larger game window but I've since dumped it off my gaming machine and play entirely with the Classic Client.

    Give both a try. Just be sure to add Pinco's mods for the EC. The basic EC that you download from EA as it comes out of the box needs the help..

    The EC was designed so that players into writing computer code could make changes to the EC and add features. Pinco has added so much it really should come with an instruction manual. The guy should be hired as one of UO's dev team.

    The links to it here on Stratics are:

    A long download but worth every second.

    I use the Classic Client. I tried the Enhanced Client, but it just seemed to foreign to me and my PC does not like it. I will try it again given the chance. I hear it is great for fishing macros.

    I agree that it has become bloated. I just turn off all the "extra" stuff. At least he gives you the option to turn off any of his bells and whistles.

    enhanced with pinco's ui, lags a bit on laptop, but perfect on main desktop.


    still use 2d to stock vendor as ec is useless for that (now if that could be fixed id drop 2d fully in a heartbeat)

    I've found I don't have to switch from EC to CC to stock vendors - on Pinco's there is that "legacy container" view (that I normally do not use). But when I stock vendors, I switch it on after I've loaded them so I can make certain that everything is viewable for those CC players out there. Then I go back to my nice grid view.

    Yes Pinco`s is an add on to the basic EC you DL from EA. It adds ALOT of functionality and makes your EC experience alot better. Here is 2 links,one is for the forum STratics provided Pinco and the other is his sight for downloading and feedback/advice.

    http://stratics.com/community/threads/pincos-ui.249270/page-15#post-2216315
    http://www.guain.it/pincoui/

    If they are not clicky,sorry. Not sure on how to add links and my coffee is still working its way thru my system! :p

    My favorite thing about Pinco`s is the right click looting. I will NEVER drag another object from one pack to another. And really I can`t see whats so different between the 2. One lil tip is to zoom out just a lil bit. Stock persepctive seems a lil pixelated,so just a tap or 2 on the xoom out button and everything smooths out and looks right.

    OH and on topic...... Enhanced all the way. I don`t even have CC installed nor will I ever.
