    Hi

    I came back to UO tuesday after 3 years away so I'm not sure if it's me doing something wrong or a real bug, but here it is :

    Tuesday I set up a macro on my tamer : use bandages, wait for target, target nearest follower. It was a temporary one because that doesn't work when hunting with more than one pet, but to begin with I though it was enough and I would change it later.

    I played tuesday and wednesday with my tamer and used that macro a few times on my Cu so I know it worked.
    Thursday I didn't play with my tamer, came back to her today and now that macro doesn't work anymore !
    I get the cursor and have the "who do you want to use this on" question asqued. Or if something (mob, item, corpse ) is selected I'm told I can't use that on it (ex I'm looting a corpse, close it and then try to heal my pet).

    I tried setting up some other similar ones using spells instead of the "use bandages" thing, like invis, wait for target, target nearest follower, or heal and cure instead of invis and I have the same problem.

    I have exactly three the same macros (invis, heal and cure) but with "target self" instead of "target nearest follower" and those work fine, same as the ones with peace and tame and select last target. It's only the "nearest follower" thing that stopped working.

    Has someone else had the same problem ? Is something wrong with my macro ? I don't use the legacy targeting system (didn't check the case on the legacy tab on user settings) by the way as I know it's not compatible.

    The only way I was able to get that to work was do target nearest follower first, then put my bandages in the macro and have them set current target for the target

    Oh so it's not just me then ! I'm relieved to know that ...

    Thanks a lot for the tip, I'll go set my macros and tried that right now.:D
