After Pub. 55 came out I have difficulty updating the client. I have overlooked it and just hit cancel to play game on startup for some time now, because I have a few accounts i play and TONS of UO macros saved. And I am dreading having to pull out spells and reset macros for every toon.:huh

Is there a way to save the macros and just move a file when I re-install game? I located the macro files, I just don't know if it will work. Just want to know for future use, because I am going to try and copy folders and import them back when new client is installed.

Any insight would be appreciated, Thanks in advance.

There is!

You go into the UO directory, find the desktop folder. This contains all macros for all characters on all servers. Just take this, copy it and put it some place safe. Uninstall, reinstall, then just copy and paste the desktop folder in. Then you have your macros.

Don't forget any macros you have set with UOAssist too. For that you will want to program files\UOAssist and copy the UOA-Settings folder to the same place you copied the desktop folder mentioned above.

The desktop folder will have all your screen settings and saved icons as well as any in game macros you have set for each character.

UOA-Settings folder will have any macros you have saved for UOAssist.

Well, I didn't have to uninstall UOA. I just uninstalled 8th age from the program menu. And everything worked like a charm, and all my UOA macros still exist. Good info though, thanks!
