    More like 'modded and graphically de-enhanced'.

    It's enhanced from 2D because it has a much better user interface?

    There has been a lot of confusion caused by the new client and the upcoming expansion having the same name. The existing 2D client is being referred to as 'legacy' or 'classic', 'enhanced' is a way of describing the new client that will hopefully help distinguish client from expansion content.
     
  9. I'd like to know when they're going to fix the real problems.

    As soon as they've finished investigating what's causing them?

    ...

    Quick update... Custom UI's at least existing KR UIs do NOT work and in fact will break your UI (until you close out the client via external process and change it back to Default on the login screen).

    In what way is the UO:KR client superior to the UO:SA client? I can think of one and only one, personally.

    Looks like crab claws to me?

    Awesome, not only does this game drain me of 9.99/month it gives me crabs as well. Lovely.

    Perhaps somebody thought it wise to impose the crab claws in order to explain the sinister sound the rune makes when it gets in range?

    A very plausible and ingenious design I must say..or then again somebody must have had a nice lobster dinner eh?

    Something weird happened when I patched... rune beetles look completely different for me. Personally, I think GrimmOmen has been messing with me again. ;)

    I want to know if EA is going to release full documentation as to what .lua and .xml code can be used for creating custom UI.

    World of Warcraft (yeah yeah) has a whole forum for custom UI and the developers are open as to what can and can't be done. Why can't EA be the same?

    example: WoW UI & Macros forum

    As of now, there is not a whole lot of information on the .lua capabilities of the SA/KR clients.

    http://www.lua.org/

    I would imagine they have their hands full getting the client/expansion betas to release stage, let alone time to document for modding. A playguide for the normal player might be a priority over the mod doc. Plus stuff may be subject to change, I would think.

    There was a link or two on the client beta forum for .lua docs, not sure if that's what you're after.
