What's the difference between the 2?

Hubby wanted to remove the KR client yesterday. Now I'm not sure what he did but he said, all other clients were uninstalled as well (2d, enhanced, SA). I felt bad cause he had finally figured out the macros in SA, he's been out hunting too, and then it's gone.

We got the 2d client back, but just wanted to check what the difference is between 2d and EC? Do I really need to d/l the enhanced client?

We're gonna be downloading SA again.

I'm a little confused on your question.

The 2D client is still the same.

The KR client has been discontinued and replaced by the SA client, which a completely seperate download. The SA client is also known as the Enhanced Client.

Both have full access to all areas and such of UO, including the new lands and dungeons.

The SA/Enchanced client has newerish graphics and special effects, but also has slightly higher system requirements. If your computer can handle either, then it's really a matter of personal preference.

I find the lands, buildings and monsters look nicer with the Enhanced Client, but don't care for the player avatars. The Enhanced Client also has many things to help make UO easier to play such as a hotbar, slot-based storage, etc. but some people have reported having slower performance and even crashes.

Basically, try and decide which client is better for you and your computer.

The "Enhanced Client" interface is pretty much the same as KR, if you were familiar with that (without all the bugs and crashing!) :)

Personally, I am loving the Enhanced Client (i.e. the SA client) right out of the box, but I liked KR too, so... I find the graphics in the Enhanced to be a perfect mix of old and new.

Thanks guys... I got confused. He just told me we lost all clients when he uninstalled KR. So I'll be dowloading SA tonight.

Hi Kit! Haven't seen you in a while...

I don't think KR should uninstall all other UO clients on your computer. It is in the same subfolder as Samurai Empire under EA Games, perhaps he just deleted the shortcuts by accident but the game is still there. I would be a bit annoyed if all my macros on all my accounts and chars were wiped.

Yep, I agree with Tancred, it should still be there, especially if you went with defaults.

The enhanced client is kind of an improved KR user interface with UO3d graphics.

Hey Ally! Finally have some UO time :P

I uninstalled KR and it didn't change 2D or the SA client. (I had all 3 on there for a bit).

Did you try playing with it for at least a couple hours? It at least deserves a fair shake.

Did you try it? My hubby swore before that he would only play on 2d. He didn't even play on the old 3d client. Tried KR and gave up. He tried SA and he likes it now.

He still plays 2d about 90% of the time, but he hunts on the SA client sometimes. It just took a little getting used to.
