    Game crashed about 20 minutes ago and now after starting UOAssist this error comes up. Did I miss a memo about the game going offline today?

    Ive got the same issue. Can't connect to UO after being booted off. Any news?

    I tried doing the trick where you add: 63.117.27.168 login.ultimaonline.com to the hosts file but still didn't work.

    I've seen posts about that error message before. I'm not sure if the problem got resolved.

    Sheesh I thought it was just me. Lost connection, and now the patcher wont open / bypassing it just causes me to lag out and get cant connect to Ultima Online.

    I guess it means I need to go to do something more productive with my time today.

    Not looking forward to logging in later as a ghost standing in the middle of Twisted Weald where I'm sure Irk or one of his buddies had fun with me after the game crashed :mad:
     
  6. That patcher issue came up months ago with a patch snafu.. this one didn't seem preceded by a patch, only by a disconnect. I've tried logging in with UOAssist, with the Classic Client without UOAssist, and with the Enhanced Client, no dice with any of them.

    Maybe we should try working out the common denominator.
    Shard?
    Client?
    Geographical area you're connecting from (roughly)

    Bah!, of course the first time I try to get on in a couple weeks... the game is down.
     
  9. Atlantic shard, Comcast cable, New England.

    *edit* neither CC nor EC work for me. The game simply will not open, long before I'm asked to pick a shard.

    Shard doesnt seem to matter considering UO wont even open. I have tried every client, and I am from NJ


    **Comcast cable is my provider

    Comcast seems to be a common theme here.

    Strangely enough, the game is not down, I'm logged in to Siege and just gated back from a treasure map I've been digging on my main monitor, while watching this thread on my second.

    I can log into UO again, but the lag is now ridiculous.

    Not EA's hamster this time, it's Comcasts - and I think they just put a splint on its broken leg.

    What is strange with all this is none of the Comcasts are connected with each other or we would just stay comcast all the way to the servers.

    Good ping (68 - 74) with no packet loss so far to US shards.

    I guess you could compare trace routes and see if there's a server, or group of servers, you all go through, Here's the ip info, but none of them are pingable, so the trace will get lost at the end.
