    I found a bug: when I try to login to retribution it shows a time out message.

    (I don't think this is a bug, I'm joking)
  3. ''•Pets will now respond to commands when whispering from more than one tile away''

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! This alone was one of the big reasons why I had avoided and, eventually, forced myself - begrudgingly - to play the KR/enhanced clients.

    Now I have even less reason to go back to 2D! :thumbup:

    What is the advantage to whispering to your pet rather than just saying it? Element of surprise?

    The advantage is being able to whisper "all kill," but have people see you say, "FTWPWNBBQ it, my pet!"

    Oh, finally!

    Now if we could change the in game fonts/colors i'd be pretty much happy.

    one of the stupidest things the developers ever did and they still don't get it.

    making the game ugly doesn't help anyone.

    No client lag / performance updates? :wall:


    Is there some trick to patching? I run the patcher and it sits there doing nothing apparent. uopatch.bin appears in the task manager as a 30MB process, but other than that it's just idle.
  10. Great, yet another client that I can't tell when a GM is trying to talk to me...

    Approaching names still do not turn off.


    You have to close the paperdoll for the profile to save, won't save if you simply switch tabs.
