    I agree. It's very very annoying. I hate recalling to my home in Fel and wondering if I'm going to log back into a gray screen. :yell:

    I'm getting really sick of it as well. I'd say 95% of the time I recall, I crash. And last night every single time I logged out, I crashed. Now the recall has happened mostly when I'm leaving a champ area, but the logging out was when I was by myself or very few people were around.

    The crashing when recalling normally happens when someone is moving something on the screen when you recall out. (figured this out when the Mellisa event was going on. Not sure if it is the same reason for when you log out. I have had it happen to me as well.

    I haven't crashed logging out (maybe my lack of neighbors who actually play UO has something to do with that?), but I have crashed a lot from recalling. And the cause is precisely what TorAnn said it was, and is a long known, many time reported bug.

    But keep on reporting it. Maybe next time they'll do something about it :D

    In the mean time, if you want to recall or gate away from a scene, try to make sure nobody else is around when you do it. I've taken to running to the bridge (Valor spawn) or into the swamp (Humility spawn) or all the way back to the gate (Spirituality spawn) before recalling or walking to the bank. It helps.

    When someone is dragging something in their backpack and you recall or go through a gate, it causes the client to crash. This has been around for awhile now for whatever reason, and I'm not even sure they can fix it.

    That being said, it's more likely to happen when there are more people on your screen, since there's a higher chance that someone is moving something around!

    I don't know about long time bug - this has only just started happening to me, and boy, is it happening. Every other time I try to go somewhere, splat, I crash again and get the nasty little 'ultima online has encountered a problem and needs to close' box. As said by others - fine if you're heading for a safe place, really crappy if you're not. There's a good chance you're logging in to a monochrome world. Mind you, it's providing entertainment for my family and most certainly expanding my kids vocabulary!
