    Is anyone out there aware of a way to use UOC with EC without Pincos? Pincos is way too laggy. Does anyone have a link to the Copper Enhanced Mod that works?

    This is hardcoded into Pinco's.

    I took half the hour to make a standalone mod out of it, so it can be used without Pinco's. See the attached zip file.

    To install you need to drop the "Mods" folder contained in the zipfile into your default UI directory, i.e. "..\Electronic Arts\Ultima Online Stygian Abyss\UserInterface\Default\Mods\UOCartographerMod\..". If there is no "Default" folder under "UserInterfaces", unzip the "Default.zip" that is there as well.

    Tell me if it works :)

    Unfortunately it's exactly things like that, that make Pinco's laggy. Both Pinco's and this mod basically write the player position to a log file ("logs/pos.log") every time your position changes. Thus resulting in relatively slow disk accesses multiple times a second. Should be no issue on modern PCs for itself, but things add up somewhere :rolleyes:

    UOC then reads this file ..

    Thank you! Until now, I was unable to get UOC to work on my current setup with Enhanced Client, as Pinco's refuses to install under Wine. Your files work flawlessly so far. UOC will still grind to a halt when compiled from EC maps, however.

    Maybe you could add this to the resource area? http://stratics.com/community/resources/ would be a nice addition

    Not sure if I can do so, nor am I sure if it should be tagged as tool or or if one should make a install guide. Anybody feel free to add it or share it somehwere else! No big thing, glad i could help ;)

    Ok, no worries. What do you not understand? We can go through this step by step.

    1) Can you locate your EC directory? (usually under C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Ultima Online Stygian Abyss)
    2) Inside there should be another folder called "UserInterface"
    3) Download the UOCartographerMod.zip from above and save it in this directory

    How about that far?

    That's a good point to start.

    Under "UserInterfaces", extract the "Default" folder by right-clicking on it and selecting "extract all..".

    You should now have two "Default" folders. One with the little zipper as before and one as plain folder w/o the zipper.

    Go into the folder w/o the zipper and save the UOCartographerMod.zip there. Then extract it there as with the "Default" folder above. There should now be a "Mods" folder among "Fonts", "EA_Context_Menu", etc.

    Restart EC and that should be it. Change your UI back to Default when you login and see if it works.

    Btw: I can also recommend renaming the extracted "Default" folder to something like "MyCartographerUI" or something, as you might want to be able to use the plain Default UI when needed.

    Would have been to easy i guess :rolleyes: Try changing the text in the box left to the browse button from "..\Default" to "..\UOCartographerUI". Then it should extract. Extract the mod then in this UOCartographerUI directory.

    Ok, i figured its way easier. Delete all the files except for the two folders with the zippers (as it was before).

    Create a new empty Folder inside UserInterfaces, call it whatever you want, like "UOCartographerUI".

    Unzip the UOCartographer.zip inside this folder as you did the Default in your last post.

    It should be like "...\Electronic Arts\Ultima Online Stygian Abyss\UserInterface\UOCartographerUI\Mods\UOCartographerMod\..." and you should be able to select this as an UI when you log in.

    WHY OH WHY OH WHY, MUST WE AGAIN HAVE TO HACK UIs to get our S*** to work?
    This should just be with the default UI.
