    Is anyone else having an issue using UOA or accessing www.tugsoft.com? I have tried from multiple computers, connections and locations and cannot reach the update server or the website.
     
  2. Yea im havin problems, "Unable to locate the updateace servers" thats the message i keep getting :cursing:
     
  3. Same issues here with UpdateAce/Tugsoft; cannot resolve hostname.

    Did they fall off the Web? Will they climb back on??
     
  4. Its happened before and it was fixed, i dont think its down for good :p

    Didn't Tug stop working on that particular program?
     
  6. Looks like it is up again. Silly me for worrying, but I have not played UO in a while and was wondering if he'd called it quits while I was 'gone'.

    I used to have over a thousand Stratics posts, before the big wiping. They were unable to recover my post count; it was about 1,300 I think.

    Not a newbie, is all I'm sayin'.
     
  7. 1 post or 1000 posts...you still play UO.
    Dont use post count as a comparison to anything that matters TO YOU.

    I certainly dont :)

    ok being we're on the subject i have a question. i made some arm/ disarm uoa macros and assigned the r and t keys accordingly. now when i type in game i cannot type r and t in the lower case. i must use upper case. this is on my windows vista machine. anyone else ever see this and if so how to combat it?

    thanks

    Either add the Alt or Ctrl keys to the mix, or don't bind macro's to letter keys. All my macro's either use F1-F12, or Ctrl/Alt and my number keys.

    Ummm, you are aware that there are preset for arm/disarm and clothing changes aren't you? Look in the "Keys" tab. Also check in the UOA FAQ in Players Corner for some stuff you might want to know.

    It is Completely dead now, Sept 2010. For the past two weeks it has been down.

    I only play uo once a week and the past two times I went on no more UOA.

    Even the updateace.com is down!

    Or maybe it's just my connection?

    Is it working for anyone else?
     
  16. Same for me, i only play once every 3 weeks if im lucky just now so i havent been checking all the time, but it still doesnt work for me

    Maybe Tug is dead.


    Or maybe he got tired of hosting a server and not making any money.

    I never liked that prick.

    F him!!!

    My App doesn't work either. On different accounts as well.

    UOA says that functions are disabled. I have all they keys loaded for my 5 active accts but none work.

    Makes you wonder how long the contract they signed was for. Might it be that he was obligated to support for 10 years or something?

    When I try to open Assist, it says it can't find it. I tell it where it is, but it doesn't work. I'm not very literate in these things, but I want my Assist back!! :( I've deleted it and tied to reinstall it several times... Nothing works

    I was in-game last night and had no issues therefore the 2 week period you refer to is invalid. Updateace worked and everything.

    I think EA should have control of UOA's servers for authentication. If there is no more updates, why should we ever have to check for updates again?
     
  24. uofreakazoid

    uofreakazoid Guest


    Can you go to www.tugsoft.com or www.updateace.com ?

    They both don't work


    If I ping either one I get no replies.

    If I ping stratics.com I get a reply

    If I ping google.com I get a reply

    if I ping uodom.com I get a reply

    They are down and you have no clue what you are talking about.

    Mine was working this morning, it isn't now.

    Oh well, I guess this is the time I either really learn to use the client macros, which are much better than they used to be, or try a bit harder to get used to the vagueness of the EC.

    The best part of UOA is the display on the header line of the UO program. That is what I will miss the most

    The rest I can program with the UO macros

    What is this EC?

    enhanced client.
    The macros are powerful, and you can re-create something very like your header line using hotbars, but the look is indistinct and unclear, making my poor old head ache from trying to make out what's happening around me.

    The domain doesn't expire till 2013, which really doesn't mean anything I guess.

    I'm hoping it's just a comcast thing, and the server will be back up soon

    It's back.
    I just logged in with full uoa support :D
     
  36. The only thing I miss from UOA is the record macro feature for fishing... the fishing doesn't work well in the EC. But the rest of the UOA macros I like better. In fact it's much easier to repeat activities in the EC macro than with UOA, either using the repeat macro function or editing the macro file.

    Speaking in terms of general functionality, I prefer the EC. Macros are easier, looting is easier, client is less laggy, etc. The only thing that keeps me in CC is aesthetics: I prefer the way it looks.

    But the looks couldn't keep me in UOA if I couldn't use mouse wheel for target self/target last.
     
  39. See, wait until the eye doc says you have to get a pair of bifocals. Both clients are pretty fuzzy and graphics won't matter so much any more. It's ALL about the size! :lol:

    They worked last night ... that does not mean that something hasn't affected them today.

    I just tried Tugsoft.com and it came up. No, it did not come up earlier this morning - like when I replied in this subthread. But it did load this time ... 1234 Eastern time.

    On the UpdateAce window in the bottom right corner is a Settings button. Click it and set UOAssist to only check for updates 1 per day. UOAssist does not update much anyway, so UO will load quicker.

    Hang on... I posted this 06/25/2009 and no body made a remark, wisecrack, necro-post/picture reply? I understand that there were issues with UOA, but I expect more from you lot.
