    Hi guys............I got a new computer and hadn't done any sailing in awhile. I found a UO Rudder download, extracted files.....I cannot get this puppy to work. I'm not alone on this, and didn't come across any solutions.....or, anyone know how to create a new hotbar on the enhanced client....I forgot....I can use the steering commands there I guess........

    With the EC you do not need UOrudder just make hot bars a stack of five and then drop the icons in them for the functions and then shorten the bar leaving blank off, and when not using it minimize the bars

    However, how do you do Slow? I can make slow forward, slow backward slow right and slow left by adding buttons but what about the slow right back, slow right forward, slow left back and slow left forward? It gets pretty cumbersome if you try to fit 8 more tiles in there. These are greatly needed when you are maneuvering a ship around a pirate ship and just plain handy in normal sailing while fishing. Same for move one tile, where UORudder has three separate commands to choose and then pick the action, Perhaps Pinco could look into this to make it easier for us.

    I drive my own boat by clicking on the tillerman, and taking control of the boat. Click on the water in front of the boat boat moves forward. works just like riding a ridable. So you wont be able to ride anything while controlling the boat.
