    Crystal Porter Ver. 6.1 For The Enhanced Client


    The Crystal Porter is a helper program I wrote that allows you to use the Crystal Portal and Corrupted Crystal Portal veteran rewards without having to remember or look up the spellings of the locations. It is a small Visual Basic Program that only sends text and an enter to the client. It does not interact with the data stream in any way.

    Although this program is not an official UO program it is doubtful that anyone at EA will care since it does not interfere with the data stream in any way.

    The program is small (less than 33k) and should take little to no machine resources. I keep it minimized as i play until i need it and then alt tab to bring it up. When you start the program a form will appear that is simple and straight forward (see figure below).

    This is now the first non beta release version (6.1) - I have tested it on several windows operating systems and vista and windows 7 will probably require that you run it as an administrator.

    It should only require net framework 2 to run, so if you can run UO Cartographer you should have no problems running the Crystal Porter.

    Comments and suggestions are welcome.

    This program is copyright, but freeware. It may not be posted on other web sites without my permission.

    I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

    PLEASE NOTE:

    The Program sends an enter - text - enter so it should now work smoothly no matter how you chat.

    I have the feeling not many people are using crystal portals. I think most just use runebooks.

    I fear you are correct - but the 2 portals - can save you carrying around 6-8 runebooks.

    Plus it is faster and never gets blocked.

    I wrote the program mainly for my own use, so I'm not too disappointed. However I can now understand why there is so few apps for the EC.

    Don't forget, also, that the Crystal Portal allows you to go places you couldn't ordinarily get to without a fight --- like Gargoyle City. :)

    BTW, a person is unable to download your program without registering for that site.

    The portals can also be used to deliver escorts, or travel with a non-bonded pet without using gate travel. IIRC, even controllable summons travel with you.

    I will be posting an update in the near future so that it just requires netframe work 2
