    We are continuing to monitor the boards as publish 68 continues. Here are the immediate items discovered in today’s publish and have been updated. Simply log out and patch your client for the following fixes:


    • Players experiencing lag with housing
    • Tokuno ship dropping cannons (will be fixed during daily maintenance)
    • Dismounting a horse creates an additional horse
    In other news:

    I know players are having problems logging in to the UOGamecodes site. The trouble is one of traffic, but we are also having our network operations looking at our side for login server issues for player accounts. They have rebooted the server controlling logins, and will continue to monitor the service as the traffic continues.

    Also, stay tuned for:


    • High Seas Fiction – we have some amazing player fiction to share with you in two parts. Part I will immediately follow this post.
    • Updates to the Live Arc – If you participated in the Invasion at Yew Prison this weekend share what you may have learned with other players.
    • Magincia is about to have a subtle makeover …
    Return to Britannia ends tomorrow morning. Anniversary items are done, tested, and will be released in the next few days.

    High Seas Helpful Hint:

    You may not dry-dock your ship with a pirate binding pole (from one of the bounty quests) on the deck. If you need to dry-dock your boat quit the quest and the binding pole will disappear.

    GDC Interviews:

    While at GDC last week, I was privileged to meet some fantastic folks from MMORPG.com, Massively, Gamasutra, Zam, and Gamebreaker TV and Curse.com

    See you on the boards.

    You might, maybe, have a traffic problem - but it doesn't look like that is the cause of what I, and others are seeing. I've had no problem at all 'logging in' to the site but credit cards that were accepted perfectly well before the site was 'upgraded' ready for High Seas are now being incorrectly rejected, with simply silly errors such as

    "A problem was encountered while processing your order:
    Your zipcode or address does not match your credit card billing address.
    Use the Edit button below to return to the address information page and make corrections. Then press the 'Cotinue Checkout' button to continue."

    I'm pretty confident that what's gone wrong is how your server checks details for non-US CC addresses, since my card is perfectly fine, works on the rest of the internet without any hassles, and is absolutely 100% matched to my address and 'zipcode', or postal code as they are called here, and are identical to those on my UO account details too. On 18 September even UOGamecodes liked the card since they happily took payment for gametime then.

    Think someone at UOGamecodes is being wilfully misleading to you Cal...

    Actually Cal is probably trying to 'spin' it to make it sound less worse than it is.

    Because, you know, he so seldom does that. rolleyes:

    Did anyone do a write up about these events? I'll say it again. If I have to choose between the two, then I'll take the large arcs everytime, for reasons just like this. EM events are for adding greater depth and dimension to the arcs in progress, and for rarer pixil crack. Go figger.

    The "event" at yew this past weekend included a smaller band of raiding Blackrock Golems, Demons and such on the jail... whereby it has given Yew Courthouse/Jail the moniker.. "Revolving Door Yew" . Ricardo is again free. And apparently nekkid, since his cloths were left behind. Also left behind, a bright green book, labeled "Battle Plans" written by a mysterious V. {Shades of Guy Fawkes Night, V for Vendetta movie, or Remember remember the 5th of November? speculation on my part}.

    Well I was on on sunday, and I heard nothing about these events. I'm wondering if they even happened on siege. We were supposed to finally have an EM... maybe I missed it somehow.
