    *sigh*... and here I was hoping that we got the "big" fix patch to fix my goza trouble...

    But that's ok.... I like fixes... keep them coming.

    I'm almost excited about this one because it sounds like my multiple Tazar's will finally get to have a separate macro set for each character...

    It's probably too much to hope that it's finally fixed after 12 years so I'll hold my excitement till I get a comment or see the results! :)

    Notice that change is listed under Enhanced Client.
    I doubt it's in the 2D client.

  6. Has this patch gone through yet? Just started up my client and didnt get any kind of patch at all? This is Classic (2d client).

    Anyone else having problems with runebooks in the enhanced client with the new patch? (it appears I can't select any rune in a runebook after a rune marked in Ter Mur)

    I can't select any Ter Mur rune either so must be some kind of bug with this patch.

    1 question.

    Where did we get to test these changes before they went live?

    We get to test Publishes - but not patches... the patch has to go out to all players to be able to test the Publish on Test Center, then Origin...

    It's a client-side change to the UI ... you can't test those without getting patched.

    I'm not quite good enough at reading the XML files to see exactly what the change was (assuming it was there), but I suspect it was a tweak to how the UI displays runes for one facet in runebooks ... nobody's going to feel good about it getting through, but once the typo is made, it's the sort of thing that I can see being very easy to miss unless an internal tester just happens to have a runebook set up in just the right configuration.

    I'm sorry, but when are the real bugs of the Enhanced Client being fixed, instead of things being removed that I consider a feature? Thanks for making me have to set up all key bindings on EVERY character anew (although I selected to leave them unchanged).

    This is really beginning to annoy me.

    Im with you man.
    The last match has absolutely destroyed UO for me. I have no journal or chat boxes, my radar is busted beyond imagination, All my chars with default skin are being asked about changes upon login that apparently busted my mage. now while he talks legacy style the new key bindings go off left in right.

    You can go in and fix most of these by going to the input tab and either selecting mmo or legacy ,or manualy change the ones to what you want!
    I know you can fix the map this way or atleast it fixed mine

    This should enable EA/Mythic to identify and resolve crash issues with gumps causing a repeated crash on login for some players.

    This has been a really long time in coming for the Classic client, my thanks go out to the EA/Mythic devs who implemented this reporting tool. Hopefully it'll allow you to bring the UO radar map back to that client's character profiles.

    In another post you mentioned you were using a third party app, right? Bitter something?

    "Bitter Black" is a mod for the enhanced client, created by B-LAU. It's not a "3rd party app." There are also a number of mods and skins available on the UO Modder's Exchange.

    Both Athos' UO site and the Modder's Exchange are safe places to DL mods.

    Hmm... not sure what your definition of 3rd party app is... but if it's not made by EA... that fits my definition. If EA didn't make it, and they aren't responsible for supporting it... why should they be responsible for any conflicts caused by the app?

    I don't know which memory leak in the EC they did fix. The worst memory leak you experience with field spells and causes your client to crash still is very much alive.
