TugSoft is inaccessible.
Making it impossible to use UOASSIST.
I noticed that, too.
Yep, very bad!
Many times it have been down in weekends!!!
Far as I know the one who officially runs that site has not played in Years... now... why he maintains it at all then is beyond me.
Perhaps a sense of loyalty to those who've paid him over the years for that.
It goes down quite frequently.
Sadly it seems to be the way with folk who do things like that. UOCartographer... UOAutomap...
Yup!! Site is down.
One day, when it is down for good then classic client users that depend on UOA is going to have some problems. Strange that he would continue if he doesn't play anymore but we all should know it's not going to run forever.
If he is going to cancel it he should officially let people know as it is a paid product and if it is no longer going to be usable then some warning must be required
Remember Rupert it's all speculation what the problem is.
Companies come and go. They go bankrupt or just close down. Notices don't have to be given. Look how many mom and pop places shut down over the past decade. Lets add many sites and software companies to that list.
You pay only once for UOA for 1 account. Not a monthly sub or donation to cover his costs to keep a site up. You pay for the software one time only for each account that uses it. If EA changed the classic client so UOA wouldn't work on it anymore then should tugsoft have to re-do UOA to work for a changed client? No.
It could be the service that is hosting his site is down, real life issues where he cant give a warning, or have the finacial backing to keep running the site.
Just all speculaton
Who is on Tugsoft.com shows the domain name expires 24th February 2021. I think this is probably just a temporary downtime and my guess is it will be back within 24 hours.
yea my answer was all theoretical
no idea on legal etc just guessed something would.
if the domain is not expired then it is probably contemporary
UO Assist Download?
I'm coming back from a 6 month break. I removed UOA from my computer during the break and can't seem to get to the download page. I keep getting a redirect back to the Google search every time I attempt to view the Tugsoft page
I did some searches here on Stratics and saw that the download had been buggy for awhile. How long does the problem usually last?
Re: UO Assist Download?
the trouble started yesterday for me..... not trying to download it, but just getting into the site . after several tries, it loads and works well..
best of luck.....
This is always the case when you have an individual, not a company, who develops any type of software. The software only lasts as long as the individual's life and commitment to it. Sadly, folks will have a accept and prepare for this.
It happens with companies too. Companies come and go. Heck, for that matter, version support comes and goes. Microsoft's still around, but good luck getting support on Windows XP, Server 2000, or even Server 2003. Nothing is eternal.
On the other hand, I'm thankful that Tug has kept UOA up and running long after his own enjoyment of the game subsided.
Tug has been pretty dedicated to UOA ever since he quit actually playing UO. Obviously he made a lot of money from it, but It always seemed to me to be more about loyalty to the game and to the players than just about the money.
He's probably on vacation or something. He might not even be aware the site is currently down. Every time this happens speculation runs wild.
From the dedication I've seen over the years I do not believe Tug will leave everyone high & dry when he does decide to be done with UOA. He probably has plans for it's future.
besides, there's a simple way to keep it working anyway
tell 'em so they don't freak out.
It last went down middle of Nov. couple days, back up,
But the freakouts are FUN!
Sorry, could you let us know what is the simple way please?
Eventually support for UOA will end though. No more updates. Support for stuff that should have been in the client from the start. Some of you may not share my opinion, but I think the existence of UOA has been very detrimental to client improvements throughout the history of UO.
As the only certified program that you had to pay for I would imagine that there is contract in place with EA that would require support unless those two sides undo it but this is only a guess on my side.
I'd also say that with the amount that former and current dev teams have relied upon this program I'd be pretty pissed if UOA went down. No chugging and the macros are a huge issue that has been over looked for a very long time.
the last time i posted it, they told me i couldn't so i give up
Its only UOA, not some kind of cheat program.
All you gotta do is go into the settings (at the bottom when you first open it) and tell it to look for an update once a day instead of every time. That should extend your runs. I am not sure if setting the date on your computer will help in this case or not. It use to.
This is not a coding change or something that interferes with anything.
Every time the site is down panic sets in.
Come on now.
One day it may stop working permanently, but it'll be unrelated to our fears of it, it will be merely coincidental.
It was set at once a day for me
But then it just keeps count down the failure to disabled everytime i open UOA
so this method doesn't work
yea i cant get it working either oh well jus play wifout it for now
( Insert obligatory 'Somebody must have fed the hamster' joke here )
It works ?
