Seriously when are certain progams going to be blocked?

  1. I know in SA you arent suppose to be able to use any of the 3rd party programs, is that true though?
    What about 2d? I'm so tired of watching ppl run through trees and grave stones like they dont even exist. Not to mention the speed issues. =/
    The unfair advantages they have are insane .... does EA not doing anything because they are afraid of losing the subscriptions? and if 2d is the problem why not get rid of 2d? or is that another thing EA is worried about losing accounts over???

    Actually a LOT of players use the 2D client. And they would loose a LOT of subscribers if they got rid of it.
    Listen to this interview and you'll see why:

    I for one just returned to Britannia and I wouldn't have come back unless I could play in 2D. I love this client. :)
    (And no, not to get an unfair advantage. I actually do love the graphics)

    And eh.. I can not run through trees and grave stones???

    Until they give us a switch to use all the old 2D graphics and get the SA Client stable and bug free as much as they can, then it will never happen. 2D is the most used client and if they shut it down you might as well shut down UO. Sorry, but the graphics stink in the SA Client.
  4. I understand ppl play cause of 2D for the most part, but why cant they (EA/M) come up with something to block the cheat programs? I guess I just dont understand it.

    Yeah its too bad the cheat programs work but UOA is screwing up, cant see corpse names now and other things.

    From what I've heard, no it isn't true. They had some new encryption to use but decided not to enable it.
