UOHB now with new Stygian Abyss tiles set.

Discussion in 'UO Homes and Castles' started by Kurgan, May 4, 2010.

    After many months of working on it.
    UOHB is now working with the new Stygian Abyss tiles.
    This is a whole new version, so if you have UOHB on your system, delete it and DL the newer version.

    I have 2 versions listed.

    1. Only OSI tile set.
    (As many people have asked for a OSI only version.)

    2. The whole enchilada, every tile there is.
    (Except some large tree tiles)

    I suggest putting each in their own folder.


    A quick note for some people.
    UOHB still not working with Vista & Windows 7
    It will load, but crashes.

    UOHB does not work if all you have installed for UO is the Enhanced Client.
    You mus have the old 2D version installed and updated.

    (This is my next project)

    Enjoy and let me know what you think of the 2 versions.
  2. Get an error upon startup, might be because I don't have UO installed on the C drive, or in a standard path.

    Please list the error?

    Which versin of windows are you running?
    HB does not work with Vista or Windows 7.
    Is you system fully updated with .Net
    Must be 3.0 or higher.

    Also having UO installed on the C drive makes no difference.
    As long as it is fully updated.
    Also make sure to not to copy and paste the EXE, make a shortcut to it.

    Also, if all you have installed for UO is the Enhanced Client, UOHB will not work.
    You need the old 2D client installed and updated.
  4. HouseBuilder.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

    EventType : clr20r3 P1 : housebuilder.exe P2 : P3 : 4bd518ba
    P4 : system.windows.forms P5 : P6 : 4889dee7 P7 : 22b8
    P8 : d P9 : system.argumentnullexception

    Windows XP, fully updated, both 2D and SA Client fully updated.

    No specific error as you can see. Dunno what the problem is. :D

    Excellent thank you!

    I would like to add that I am using Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and this works fine for me, it only crashes if I try to resize the WIDTH of the window with the tiles/pictures in, I can adjust the height fine and it hasn't crashed any other time. This also happened in the previous build.

    thank you, Kurgan! :)

    you know that I had trouble when installing the older version, but this one was smooth as a hot knife thru butter....... opened right up with no crashing but I know from the last time not to attempt to resize or minimize cause of the Vista

    this pc is a little Dell Inspiron 530s

    Yes, the resizing is still an issue with the program for Vista & Win7.
    This is the next thing I am working on.
    But I wanted to get something out to you folks. As I wanted to keep HB going.

    Glad you like it.. :thumbup1:
  9. Thanks Kurgan, but it's still not working for me. It's more than likely my system though. :D

    Awesome let me know when you work out the bugs with Windows 7 64 bit...
  12. Kurgan

    Kurgan Guest

    Well the only bug with Vista & Win7 is the resize of the toolbox, making it bigger to the side. Up and down works fine.
    So I redid the toolbox default, and chaged it to 500x800 for Vista & Win7.
    Also the new version will allow you ro make the toolbox full screen, if you double click the top bar.
    Til I can figure out what is causing the crash.
    I will be updating the DL's soon.
  13. Kurgan

    Kurgan Guest

    OK new versions are up again.
    All you need to do is DL the new one's, and copy the Housebuilder.exe into your HB folder.
    Any questions please let me know.

    Did you get the Vista/7 stuff worked out?
  15. Kurgan

    Kurgan Guest

    Not yet, but the versions up there, have a bigger toolbox window.
    So you should not have to resize it to the sides. Resizing up and down is fine.
