    I got a small patch today (didn't pay attention to size, but it didn't take long to apply), any idea what it was? UOHerald didn't have any info on it. Is it related to the next part of the story arc?

    Ya, I was curious myself. Maybe this was to lay the foundations for the houses?

    ...

    Ummm..... I don't think so

    Edit: I'm going to guess it's a patch to break the update I just uploaded to my User Interface for the EC :p

    Unlikely, I suspect that requires Mesanna to manually place them on each shard.

    The notes on the Japanese UO site indicate that the 2d client patch 7.0.6.5 and the SA client patch 4.0.6.6 included the following:

    • Localization files updated. Something about manual procedures for changing the description of the house received as a prize for the Abyss quest.
    • Changes to the names of some magical properties. (The properties seem to be ones for reducing mana, reducing stamina, hit point conversion, velocity, and balanced.)

    The Google translation of the Japanese is clunky at best, so it's hard to say exactly what the patch really does. If you can read Japanese or know of a better translator, here's the Web page with the patch info: http://ultimaonline.jp/news.phtml?id=89860.

    Here is a link to another interesting page on the Japanese site: http://ultimaonline.jp/news.phtml?id=89856.

    Don't know.

    I'm staying across the street from EA in Redwood City tonight. Want me to go over and ask them? I saw their building as I was having sushi for dinner. Seemed pretty quiet over there.

    They must be out working a spawn.

    Babelfish doesn't do any better, but pretty much confirms what you stated.

    I don't often say things like this, but I hope the person responsible for posting the information the the UO Herald page is the same person that screwed up distributing the information on the quests to begin with, and that they find themselves at the back end of the long line to the unemployment office...

    Isn't the UO Dev Team in northern Virginia at the Mythic HQ now?

    Still, you should go over there and give them a piece of your mind!!!

    Best translation I could come up with -

    Sometimes, I think Mandarin is easier to translate.... of course, English would have been preferred, but....

    That man wanted to come and 吹Kkake expected. Now you can store ran out.
    Do not forget the password you'll note. Grin is to see that man again.

    Des La Fora

    Why would you ever say something like that? And how was the information about the quests screwed up anyway?

    What exactly was screwed up when distributing the information on the quest? On my shard, people had no trouble doing the quest.

    Delete your temporary internet files. Your computer is probably relying on old cache information.

    The quest for the SA houses was announced on 4/6... problem is, it went live, with no notification, on 4/5. Even the devs have said this was a serious issue, and they were rather unhappy with the person responsible.

    I didn't say there was trouble doing the quests - however, there were, once again, communications issues.

    The main thing in the patch was a change in quest text on the housing quest... originally we were going to just have you win the house and not have a transferrable ticket. The quest text said that Mythic would contact you after you won.

    Then we decided that it would be better if the winner could sell the house before claiming it. So, on the Herald it says that the winner needs to contact us... because while we know who the winner of the contest is, we won't be able to automate tracking the ticket.

    So, I forgot to change the quest text which had been through QA a week earlier. When we realized that the Herald and the quest text contradicted each other, we changed the quest text. As someone pointed out in another thread, I'm trying to keep the game self contained and give people the info that they need inside the game. (I know the Town Criers didn't get updated, sorry.)

    While we were at it, we just fixed a couple of other things. But that was the main thing.

    The quest wasn't announced until the 6th, a day after the event had started. Even Mark admitted that this was a royal screwup and that they were mad about it happening.

    Thanks Mark for at least admitting an oversight. I'd rather hear someone forgot instead of not hearing anything and thinking you guys are out drinking the ink bottles.:lol:

    First step is talking to us. Makes us feel better.

    A question about the quest...since you get drawn at the start of a day, then if you don't do part 1 of the quest until later in the day, you can't be in the draw for that day, even if you then do part 3?

    I realized the same thing. If you did part 1 today, then proceed to part 3, your char wouldn't be in the ballot list yet and you'd never win for that day.

    However! You'll still get to rummage through the war chest and hopefully get a robe. And you still get to do the quest again the following day (this time your char actually have a chance).

    with so little being put in I'm wondring why this has broken the screen shot facitity of uo wedding. not a biggy I realise for most but a very large part of my game play as it's a vital part of me doing my write ups. Any chance I have missed as screen shot facility in 2d, if so please point in in the right direction.
