10 things that are a kick in the ol' balls

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Prince Caspian, Jul 15, 2008.

  1. 1. Dismounting during combat, simply because im trying to target some creepy who is right on top of me.

    2. The tendency of my toon to chase the friggin cursor around even when I am not left-clicking (in 2d). Precise movement is impossible lately.

    3. Closing spell icons by accident. I wish there was an option to NEVER close those under any circumstance.

    4. The fact that Poison seems to *ALWAYS* work on me (even from imps), even though I have 120 resist.

    5. Vengeful Spirit. And the fact that paladins have absolutely no way to deal with them other than killing them (and they are tougher than dragons by the way)

    6. People who don't clean up after their treasure hunts... especially those who leave Ingenious Chest Level monsters milling about.

    7. "You cannot see that."

    8. Accidentally re-hitting the bandie macro when I'm a second away from completing a heal (and thus utterly negating any good the last 5 seconds did me)

    9. The fact that my ass apparently tastes like Premium Deli-Style Pastrami to Dark Fathers and Peerlesses, because they always zero in on me out of groups of 20+ peeps.

    10. The fact that PKs and their strike force network have made it utterly impossible to do the Harrower, even with a 20+ guildmates.

    i am totally with you on 2,6,7 and for sure 8 !!

    let me add "client crashing while redlined or next to strong enemies, especially annoying is the crash when doubleclicking your dead corpse in KR and instantly crashing the client"

  4. I agree with you on 1, 3, 4, 7, and 8.

    With regards to 5, I always carry a hit dispel weapon.

    I'd also like to add:

    Things that can't even have a Discord or Provoke attempt made at 120/120, especially new or high end content.

    Most recently that I seem to client error everytime I recall/sacred journey or leave via a teleporter. (especially in places like the star room or where Melissa spawns)

    1. does suck
    2. I only have that problem in KR during a lag spike. The only time I cursor chase in 2D is when I left click while holding right click down...
    3. does suck in 2D, but I usually have those in the black area so it didn't happen as much. I use KR alot now and while in a tool bar they can't be closed out by clicking.
    4. Never have high resist anymore, so I guess I am used to being poisoned.
    Note: I don't PvP
    5. An annoyance, but I usually just deal with them.
    Note: I don't do DFs all that much.
    6. Haven't gone hunting burried treasure in a while...
    7. Yep does suck!
    8. OMFG! Always hated that!
    9. 110 mo newb. I don't do them too often.
    10. Rarely do spawns, never have in Felucca. Don't PvP. I'm not an aggresive 'alpha male'. I got my butte handed to me enough before Trammel that any desire for PvP was stripped from me. I'd like to blame it on 56k modem(or was it lower?)!

    Me too about half the time on the teleporters. It happens about 10% of the time on recalls too.
  7. :scholar:Well if you ever recalled into one of my digs, sorry but I am busy luring one at a time away to kill since when you get two or three AWs its impossible to do anything at the chest till you kill them off. Pity the person that follows me when I am trying to do that. :bowdown: However you will know when the site is clear when I am done, as the chest will be dropped and the monsters will be dead.:love:
  8. I don't mind left over map spawn I usually kill it myself, it's nice to see something overland that doesn't die soon as you look at it.

    I don't know if it's still the case but didn't most of the gold/best loot from treasure hunting used to come from the spawn?

    i to will agree with alot of those but for 2 i have only had that happen recently and in KR forget it it takes longer to correct then it does to die :drool: or maybe i am just an idiot on that one

    also the recall crashes are a killer as of late especially if your going throu a DOORWAY that has to reload the graphics on the other side (go figure that out) and or recalling into a location with some nice strong butt kicker in the location

    ohh well i have just been adjusting to the probs and trying to figure out ways to stay alive on the other side of a recall in case it crashes

    I hate that too. New beasts that have so many hit points that it makes impossible to bard them.Then there are the beasts that are completely immune to barding that we are not allowed to even make an attempt at peacing/provoking it.

    I thought I was the only one having my client crash when I recall and use a teleporter. It started happen after Pub 53 for me. At least when it does happen I am usually going to a safe location.

  14. burnttrees

    burnttrees Guest

    OK then please explain how to fix #2 in KR as its been driving me nuts and also i don't hit both mouse buttons at the same time in KR to cause this
  15. Then tell me what I'm doing wrong.

    If you can't.... that just proves your only objective is to be a smug *******.

    Stop clicking the left mouse button while holding down the right (movement) one.

    (I have a hunch its from you trying to click a spell icon while running around :lick: )

    Stop right clicking the spell icons (or make a macro for them?)

    (again, I have a hunch its connected to number 2! )

    Yeh I agree, both KR and the old 3D client have/had the ability to 'lock' ability icons in place with hotbars, would love to see something like this for 2D.

    11. Out with your fully trained Greater-Drag. You mistakenly hit your 'all kill - last target' macro instead of your 'all kill - wait for target' macro. Suddenly remembering your last target was applying a bandage to yourself.

    12. You have your backpack open. You're pulling the gems gems to place into a secure container. You drag a gem toward the container but the backpack comes with the gem and covers the container YET the gem is still on the tip of your finger. So you must put the gem back down, move the backpack out of the way and start again. Been bugging me for over 7 years.

    13. Every once in a while, the 'Reverse Speaker' checkbox gets spontaneously checked.

    I have so done #1 countless times...... at the MOST inopportune times.

    #2...... this one seems to happen to me quite often when I'm holding something wanting to drop it somewhere.... can't seem to stop walking rather irritating.....

    #3..... well sometimes I do this...... rather annoying but not...... that irritating... typically I have these macro'd so I don't really need the icons that bad....

    #4...... Now I don't really have resist..... however when I've eaten a petal the poison that effects me never seems to get cured or lessened by the petal... also I seem to always get poisoned again immediately after curing the last one...... and I have noted not sure if anyone else has.... when I am trying to gain up my Karma and Fame to sacrifice the monsters seem to know I'm about to finally reach my goal of Ladyship/Lordship and seems to me the enemies suddenly become 10 times as fierce and up their intelligence at fighting by 10 fold.

    #5... I tend to find that if I'm hunting the DF you can bet that he sends those things after me almost exclusively... obviously you and I don't do doom at the same time...... And I can't ever get rid of them.... except killing them.

    #6 I hate this too..... as well as sloppy looters..... like take Melissa for instance...... most folk loot their corpse by searching through their own corpse and leave the stuff on the corpse... however some folk feel the need to take everything off the body and throw it on the floor as if to leave scraps for some unseen rat or something...... Like they are being gracious... however..... what this really does is LAG up everyone.... I myself spend half my down time while doing Melissa cleaning up the floor from sloppy looters to lessen my lag and attempt to stave off my getting yet another client crash...

    #7........ always find this irritating.... as 9 times out of 10... they can see me fine!....

    #8.... oh how many times I've died because of this error.... *Sighs*

    #9 ... A bit of friendly advice for you regarding this one..... they zero in on those who deal some seriously heavy damage... unlike Paragons who zero in on those who are moving..... if you don't move they won't be attracted to you as much as someone running.... Peerless seem to know if I've just been rezed and they tend to enjoy rez killing..... Not very nice of them... As for the DarkFather..... I've never had much trouble there..... Unless I really hit him HARD..... he don't seem to appreciate me hitting him especially hard.. that tends to make him notice me rather quickly. Oh and you might try some after shave...... maybe deodorant..... how about a bath?

    #10.... never really cared for Fel or doing any spawns at all in Fel..... so no advice there.. sorry.

    i've had lots of trouble with revenants and i recently bought a crossbow with 44% hit dispel and that seems to take care of them quite quickly. so, i guess my recommendation is just to bring a hit dispel weapon with you.

    The crash that happens randomly when there is a death near me, and most especially a pet death. This bug goes back as far as I can remember. I reported it two or three times when I used to play over six years ago now, and then again when I came back almost three years ago. This bug spans at least two versions of Windows, probably three, and at least three completely different hardware configurations.

    11.Being on UO strats main page, clicking on UO hall and then having to scroll down a page or two and click on UO hall AGAIN!. Used to be the pull down on the first page would take you right there. I'm not to thrilled with the new forums. And will we ever get professional forums back???
    Needless clicks drive me nuts!

    You can turn the cursor-follow off in the options, under Interface(2D). Although one less kick in the balls at this point is hardly noticed.
