KR has some really nice features. I was filling potion kegs the other night. Had it set to make max. Well when it had made nine. My ISP lagged. I set there watching it and wondering how long this would last and would I need to restart the macro. Well finally the lag spike ended. My comp was making the "pouring" noises furiously. I watched my make count jump to 21 then went to 41 and leveled off in the low fifties. So it seems they have the server side actually doing the work and just reporting it back to the client.

May not mean much to most people. If you are used to using UO Assist. It is a nice change :)

It's taking a bit to get used to, but I'm making head way. I kinda compare it to relearning Microsoft Office , the 2007 version is soo much different than the 2003 interface. But sooner or later I'll get there and be comfortable.

So far the only thing I totally miss is UOAM, the map just plain sucks.

Still trying to learn it too. Took me a while when I started playing 2d, but not as long as it's taking me now. But I'll get there.

When they get KR where you can do things. Give it a good work out. It really is a nice client. Right now my biggest problem is lag (not with KR). The ISP for my ISP has a problem. I hoped they would have it fixed by now. So far it has been this way for several weeks. Not much fun trying to hunt when you can lag for thirty to forty seconds :-/ .

As for KR it sucks since it does not run takes 5 min to get to log on screen, the mouse curser never shows up. 30 second lag between tyuping any thing or moving mouse and to have it show up on screen. P4 2,4 gig 1 gig mem and new nvidia 7600 card with 512 meg vid mem. KR SUCKS and i dont like it

I can get into KR now, and move around a bit. The bad part is if I try to go anywhere. The more I move around, the more lag I get. It all just keeps building up until I have to log off.

During the past few weeks I have been spending a lot of time in KR. I am growing found of little things like the ease of making macros and using hotbars. Also the way you just right click on loot items and they go straight to your pack. However Like Adri mentioned after a few hours of playing KR gets really slow and laggy, then I have to go back to 2d. I read somewhere that KR has a memroy leak issue they are working on so this should be fixed at some point. But if you can give KR a chance, it will grow on you.

yeah, if you're using Vista, you need to run the prog as an admin, otherwise it won't patch.

Its now very playable for me with no probs except the odd ctd. I love thegraphics in KR and the interface and craft menus are great.

Just a note for those lagging a bit. I posted in my blog that by turning off shadows in the graphics options, KR ran light years better for me. And I have a fairly decent system.

Turn OFF shadows? I'll try that, thanks. Is there a way to shut off swaying trees?

I have a computer that would "crawl" (unplayable) in UOKR. So I thought it's probably my old graphics card. My computer is hand-built, but about 3-5 years old in technology. It's 2.01GHz AMD Athlon XP 2400+, 1.5 GB RAM.

I tested my system with Aquamark3, which I downloaded from here. I think/hope that is a trusted site (http://www.softpedia.com)

On my poor system, I had a total Aquamark3 value of around 6000. My CPU value was pretty good, but my GFX (graphics card) value was really low.

I then bought a new top of the line AGP card (since I did not want to change my motherboard and go with new PCI-extended cards yet) and I can easily play UOKR on my older computer. I now get an Aquamark3 rating of about 33,000. I think my computer was waiting so much on the graphics card to do things, I could not play UOKR on that machine.

I don't understand all the tests and values, but I do see the test shows the workload on the CPU versus the workload on the GFX (graphics) card. (higher ratings are good, lower are bad).

Are there other forums/threads talking about test benchmarks for our computers so we can at least try to know what components might need upgrading?
