is uo automap not accurate anymore? I was out with my fisherman, and putting in coordinates for sos locations, and it would get me close, but would not be on the spot. I had to manually guide my self to the right coordinates, and a triple and quadrupale checked the coordinates

UO Automap is no longer being updated anymore unfortunatley :(. This could have something to do with your issue.

It may be that you need to re-calibrate.... I believe if you get yourself as close as you can to Lord British's Throne with by the way has the co-ordinates of 0/0...... then you can recal UO-Automap..... there is a thing to do that in one of the dropdowns on the top. Good luck Posted Image

I can't even get anything to come up on UOAM other than a black screen. I see no maps anymore. Tis a bummer.

I just used it a few days ago, perhaps your map files got corrupted and just need to reload it?

It happened on both my laptop and desktop systems - and last week I did a fresh load, as I had to reload Windows and UO and everything else... no dice. :-/

I play mostly KR now anyway, so it's irrelevant, but occasionally I do play 2D (like, for fishing) as it's just easier.

Doesn't it require UOA to track correctly. I used UOAM the other day w/no problem, but I know it doesn't work right for me unless I have UOA running first.

They may not be updating it any longer but I find that it works fine if you rune UO Assist first then run UO Auto map. Just won't have anything new.

Bummer, loaded up UOAssist and then auto map, and now I see maps instead of just black, but the map isn't accurate to where I'm standing and it doesn't move or change or anything.

All I really want it for is to figure out the UOAM coordinates of my house!!!

Yes you need UOA and I believe all you have to do is click track people in UOMAP

All you need is a sextant to calibrate uoam. The sextant will give you your current location, and just put that in uoam, and there ya go.

Sad thing that one of the finest tools for uo is now a dead horse. Had hope someone that has the skills would have made an alt. mapping program.

I had even more hoped that KR would have incorporated UOAM's functionality into the client. They had said that one of their goals in creating KR was to include features that players had to rely on third party apps for in 2D, but UOAM's features weren't really included - or if they are, they're not nearly as transparent and easy to use, as I haven't figured them out in KR!

Maps in KR need *serious* improvement, which they are supposedly getting in SA... (They'll start displaying player houses again, for one!)

I have found that when running Vista you have to run UO Automap as and administrator or it will not track your location.

Simply right click the icon and choose the option to "run as administrator"

I had that problem with win 98. It went away when I got xp.

Im on XP, so Vista isn't doing it.

Assume by response nobody else is having this issue?
