    I created a new character in the Enhanced Client and was amazed at how speedy he was.

    His character file located in C:\Users\PCName\Documents\EA Games\Ultima Online Stygian Abyss\User Data\AccountName\ShardName is only 45 bytes. An older character is 188 bytes. It's full of entries like

    <WindowPositions name="CID1077332318" x="932.000000" y="857.000000" width="360.600006" height="414.000000" />

    and

    <NumberVar name="ScrollGrid1099612594" value="0.000000" />
    <NumberVar name="ScrollList1098872575" value="0.000000" />

    Is there anyway to clean this file up to speed up my character?

    Any help? Some of my characters move so much more slowly than others.

    I know when running Pinco UI it would store all the locations for open containers but the default EC doesn't seem to save that much extra info.

    I make one profile and clone it for all my characters and just change about the skills and hotbar setup as needed.

    Just like the CC you can delete the Char File then relog it in but then you will have to redo everything for the Char.

    I don't really want to recreate undress macros, etc.

    Can I just delete all the lines that begin with CID, ScrollGrid, and ScrollList?

    No clue. I use the CC and copy my macro file, delete char folder, log char, replace macro file.
