    It has more to do with connection than computer...

    It's much quicker to copy the existing install from an older computer, if that's still an option.

    I could probably burn a DVD and locate a carrier pigeon that could get it to you before your patching's done.

    I recently got a new PC. Downloaded the classic client from the official website (about 900mb) and did some patching. Probably only took an afternoon if that. But I have a pretty decent broadband connection here in the UK.
     
  6. All I could find to re-boot was an old 8th age disk - on cable it took about two hours of patching, if I remember right. I SHOULD have just downloaded from the site...but I prefer boxes and disks (hint hint)

    I still have my LBR disc.

    I should see how long it takes to patch up from that, just for fun....

    Downloaded the latest SA classic client from the uo homepage, 30mins
    http://www.uoherald.com/downloads/
    And the patching took me less than an hour, just on a standard dsl connection..

    I also did it that way, 'cause I didn't trust my SA CD ;)

    got it done in less than two hours.

    I have all my UO cds but I went to tech forum EA link and dwl'd UO from there.

    I began at 1:15pm central time. At approx. 1:36 pm the dwld itself was done to whatever year that their ea dwld. finishes. Then all their patches since 9th anniv. to the present dwl'd.

    At 2:45pm central I said hi to some dog, on my UO porch on Siege. The dog spoke to me and I to him. Guess he was lookin for full spellbooks off me vendor but those sold out.

    I have more stuff to figure out on this new studio 17 i7 thingie yet so I won't be restockin till this stuff is all done and I am in game regular like. But first order of business and work is ..getting this laptop set up totally.

    Now to go back to the OLD computer later on tonite, to get all my UO chrs. options from that, to apply to my chrs. to be the same or more like I prefer on THIS laptop computer, to play UO like I prefer.

    Took most of the day to get ONLINE, properly, with this new fangled thing, hey I am no puter geek wizard ya know. :) It has been 10 yrs. since I had to start a computer from scratch get go out of the box to set up. Ima used to 28k modem and a win xp. LOL

    This all is gonna take me, some time.:lol:
    *wish me luck*
