Legacy mode is a KR feature that allows you to see the 2d art, which was mostly done for Items, Containers, and housing pieces.

Ok, I'm new (again). What is this legacy mode? I have always prefered the 2d graphics...is this some kind of 2d upgrade?...la


Just another trap to get you into KR. I'm sticking with 2d till they turn it off, then I will close my accounts. We tried KR/Legacy here and found we did not like it and would much rather play outside in a thunder storm then try KR again.

And I still have not voted till you add a 3d choice, like 2d only!

They are planning to close down 2d?!? Are they nuts? That will be the final nail in uo's coffin.

The KR client has a few "legacy" options you can choose - a legacy chat option (so you don't have to hit Enter before typing chat), a legacy container option (so that containers use artwork similar to the container art in 2D), and a legacy art option (which I haven't tried yet, but I'm guessing it uses graphics from 2D somehow?)

They're all under user settings.

Ya they would be nuts to force folks to move to KR to drop 2d, many players still cannot upload and play KR on the OS they have on older machines, even PCs that were only 1 or 2 yrs old when KR came out had problems running it, but these same folks kept trying, I wish them luck.

Those with newer machine were able to play it and have shouted their love and joy, but there are many that do have it, but dislike several feature and the option for Legacy art was put in to peace these folks.

As for us here, we don't like KR, period. And will not download that file ever again. And if they go NUTS and close 2d then we close our accounts.

just for you i hope 2d dies very soon.

For everyone else who gives KR a try once in a while i hope 2d stays longer, just until KR is good for everyone.
