To ease the transition to launch day, we are providing a patch for players who use the Classic Client. This is an update to the art associated with the new content. We recommend patching the 332 MB download before Tuesday’s major update: Publish 60!


Stay tuned for more updates!

What was the patch number for this patch anyways just trying to figure out if my current version of UO was actually updated after the patch cause to me looks like my UO verison is the same as it was before the patch but I didnt get any errors while patching.

Why have they not learned? These large patches on the 2D client cause many problems for users with slower, older machines. Should have been broken down into 3 or 4 smaller patches. Though I have a new computer and a good connection, I know some players that are still on dail-up because broadband has not made it out to their area. Oh well good luck with the download.

330MB is probably the smallest MMO expansion patch since ML, actually. On average, a major content patch for a typical MMO is 500mb-1gb, and a bug fix is 100mb.

It is unfortunate, but the average internet user has gone broadband, so 56k people are kinda ignored.

So is the UO version after this patch for classic client[2d users] 16.0.14.3 still til SA launchs or should our UO version now read 16.0.14.4? Reason I ask is it took forever for the installer to apply the new patch and my current version of uo still reads 16.0.14.3 so wondering if the patch didnt take or something.

Yes, but if you will recall that ML was broken up into 3 patches for users at that time. And if it was just the associated art as was stated then there should not have been major trouble to break it into 3 or 4 patches. Just trying to look out for the older player with the slower computer which UO still runs fine on.

Just as a point of information. I have cable took me about 12 minutes to d/l and install the 330 "pre-patch" I'm sitting on version 6.0.14.3 (Patch 80) for the 2d/Legacy client.

As much as I feel with Chloe and other who are on very poor connection, this is probably a very small percentage of the player base and should not be the foremost consideration for the devs. just my humble opinion.

This is true. Most developers aim for the majority of their users, and these days, that's a computer less than two years old, and at least a DSL connection.

You know I would go with your arguement if UO subscriptions were heading up towards the all time high of ~250-300K payers. But since we are not and I know many players that still play UO, just because it still runs on just about any computer you can turn on. Some consideration should be made for the slower paying customers. Would it really have mattered for us fast downloaders if it was 3 or 4 patches? No. But it would have helped slower players.
