    They are actually still largely valid :)


    General updates:
    1) For the Legacy client, both uo.cfg and macros.txt are now found in
    C:\Documents and Settings\<Your windows login>\My Documents\EA Games\Ultima Online Legacy\User Data\<Your UO account>\<Your shard>\<Your character name>\
    instead of
    <UO program folder>\Desktop\[accountname]\[shardname]\[charactername]​

    2) macros.txt has been renamed to macros2d.txt

    3) There are still master copies of both these files in the UO program folder. Whenever the client can't find a personalized copy of either of the 2 files, it will make a copy of these files into the folders in point 1. That means having copying pre-configured UO.cfg and macros2d.txt files in the UO program folder will allow new characters to use these pre-configured settings and macros

    4) For the SA client, there are no UO.cfg or macros.txt file. Instead an XML file that stores all the macros/toolbars/gump positions is saved in
    C:\Documents and Settings\<Your windows login>\My Documents\EA Games\Ultima Online Stygian Abyss\User Data\lezlee\<Your UO account>\<Your shard>\​
    There will be a file there for each character name. Note that these files do not have a 3 letter file extension.

    Updates for UO.cfg:

    The following options I believe are defunct now. They are either not available or don't do anything anymore:
    1) AcctPassword=[encrypted string]
    2) AssumePlayAsGhost=[On/Off]*
    3) RememberAcctPW=[On/Off]*
    4) SavePassword=[On/Off]*
    5) The translation server stuff:
    # TranslationServer=[On/Off]*
    # TranslationServerAutomatic=[On/Off]*
    # TranslationServerIPAddress
    # TranslationServerSystranDocumentType
    # TranslationServerSystranNFWMarker
    # TranslationServerSystranTopicalGlossaries
    # TranslationServerTranslatorName
    # TranslationServerUserLanguageCode ​
    6) ChestOpening=[On/Off]*
    7) EnableMessenger=[On/Off]*
    8) CdRomDataPath=[Path]*



    These are new/missing ones when I compared with my own uo.cfg file:
    AlwaysRun=
    BuffIconsGumpMinMinorAxisSize=
    BuffIconsGumpOrientation=
    ChatFontNumber=
    ClientFirstLaunch=
    ColorOutOfRange=
    CombatMusic=
    CurrentStatusGump=
    DarkNights=
    Desolation=
    DisableMenubar=
    GlobalQueue=
    IgnoreAllianceChat=
    IgnoreGuildChat=
    ItemPropsIcon=
    NewbieDesktop=
    NextLoginKey=
    ObjectHandles=
    PartyMessageColor=
    ReduceFramerate=
    ShiftForContext=
    ShowBuffIconsGumpAtStartup=

    The cache sizes do something different now than they did in the "run from CD" era. But they are still valid commands, and the devs have recommended in the past to change them to 1024 or twice your RAM (MB), whichever is lower (default is 25). The client will run MUCH smoother with the change.

    Thanks a lot both :).

    I wish they'd change the default on that Basara, I'd completely forgotten it since I re-installed.

    There are three lines in the old info that aren't in the current default list. I decided to see whether they worked when added.
    CensorBlood=[On/Off]
    CensoredBloodColor=#[000000-FFFFFF]
    CensorFlesh=[On/Off]*

    The results were interesting.

    I hit a corpser and got green blood, I killed some shadow wisps and looted these :D
