Hey guys,

So I've just resubscribed to Ultima, about 3 years after playing last. I cancelled after Blackthorn's, but couldn't resist KR (which, actually, turned out to be barely different ¬_¬). But yeah, I rescued my chracters, and all was going well.

Until I installed UO (the 9th Anniversary Collection, and KR) on my new PC the other day (Vista, 3.2Ghz Pentium D processor, 1gb RAM), and it just runs utterly, incredibly, stupidly slowly. For instance, I try to follow someone, and I go so slowly, they end up disappearing. Just did a speedtest, results are below:

So, as you can see, whilst not fantastic, it's not terrible. I've tried getting hold of UO-Trace, but EA's (utterly terrible) customer support says that I 'do not have permission'. Please help guys, this is getting really annoying!

FYI, I play on Europa.

Cheers in advance,
caklar.

Best thing to do, is run a trace route using UOTrace, which can be found here.......ftp://ftp.ea.com/pub/origin/patches/uo/uotrace.exe

When it asks to download the server list, say no, because it'll just error otherwise
Once open, click the Options menu, then "Advanced"
Back on the main page, type in europa.owo.com
Click the Trace route button
Once it's finished running the trace, click "Poll" and let it run for 5 minutes
Stop the poll, then copy/paste the results here, or take a screenshot of it.

Note:

To copy/paste, click "Edit" then "copy"
Come here and create a new reply to this thread, type....

Heh big picture, but that works
I assume you're playing on the Europa shard right?

Hmm, when you were running the poll/trace, how often did any of those points, hit the high 200+MS?
It's odd you hit such high pings like that

Not entirely sure, I was AFK for the time it did. I'll re-run.

Hmmm...I posted, but it didn't recognise.

I have no problem with games on like...addictinggames.com, obviously. I play Black and White 2 on here, and there's no problem. If it's jumpy, mb it's my GFX card? How could I check?

I'm installing my trial of WoW on here to see.

KR does the same thing to me, what Ive found is I can play any game on the market and have with little to no lag including KR for the first min or two, then KR chews up my memory and within minutes its using 100% of system resources and lags incredibly bad to the point of lock-up!

Most people here would advise using the old client...

I however haven't had any lag or performance problems with KR for month. I think someday in September or so, they put insome patches to resolves those probs.
I'd say, bring up your control panel and check your systems cpu load and memory usage while running KR. If they go to 100% real soon and stay there, then thats where your problem lies.
