    I have a character on an account that cannot use any of the skills with the blue button next to them in the skill gump. When I click the button it says i must wait a few moments. When i wait a few moments or 5 or 10 or 100 it still says i must wait a few moments. When i log out and back in 2 hours later and click on it it still says you must wait a few moments. All the other chars on that account a fine. Any suggenstions besides uninstalling and reinstalling the game or paging a GM?

    Thanks

    My only suggestion would be to go in to your folder and delete just that character. You will have to redo all the stuff for that character kinda like a fresh start. But I'd try that before I go and reinstall.

    Not sure what system you run but on mine it's in documents>EA Games>Ultima Online (then the client you use)>User Data>(Your Account)>(Shard you play on). And you should find the characters name.

    I had the same thing happen to me the other day for about 4 hours or so. For some reason as I was dragging some arrows to the bank box they had gotten hung "in my hand" but I was unable to see them on the screen anywhere. Even when I logged in and back out it was still the same way. Eventually I moved the mouse over where I had initially picked them up and they showed back up. Moved them to box, dropped and was once again able to perform actions. Ain't saying this is your problem, but would try it and see before deleting your char info like that. Good luck either way.

    You could try putting all your gear in your bankbox and then going out and dieing.

    No joy on the killing self. Still is happening. If I delete that char from my folder will I have to work skills and everything up again? Also that char is the owner of my luna house, will that pose a problem?

    You only delete the character's desktop folder (in my documents) You're not deleting the character itself. You'll lose desktop settings and macros.

    Page a GM... OR Use the EC to go in and use the skill then log back in on the CC.

    This is a bug that has to do with the two client not working properly with each other I bet. Whenever I encounter a bug like this I simply log in with another version of the client and it will work properly.

    In the time it will take to download, install, and patch the EC, you should do as Vyal suggested and page a GM. My character's real magery skill was stuck and would not change when bracelets and rings were removed or added, and a GM fixed it for me.

    Thanks everyone for your help. The situation is fixed. I paged a GM and within a few minutes the GM contacted me and fixed the issue. I have nothing but praises for the GM staff! Petra you can lock this thread if you want.

    Page a GM, this is how this issue was resolved for me.

    This issue seemed to be caused by the old peacemaking bug & or with crafting tool menus (they both did the same thing) after this bug was fixed it seemed to add ALL the skill delay/bypasses together which caused you to have an Extremely long wait before you can use another skill manually.

    Maybe a wild shot - but try to use the stuck option and get teleported to a town.
    - When using that, your character skills in use are locked till you get teleported.

    Sorry for the thread necro, but just found one way that fixes it without GM intervention. I got fed up waiting so figured I'd go shopping, then it dawned on me that the game forces a 'hide' when you step into the moongate, my char also has stealth. Went through the gate, was automatically hidden, started to walk and stealthed, problem solved! Can use her skills as normal (been stuck for 24 hours).

    This has worked for me as well. I don't know why there are times when a gm is needed. I don't know the nature of the glitch.
