what will the hold SHIFT option do to prevent it? I am not at home to see the game right now to try it out, so could you explain it some?

Bo I am not sure what it "does" to prevent the bug. I do know that is the fix for the one that was around a while back.

It has something to do with how UO controls items. The Enable Shift option changes how UO handles items. The original way is bugged, so it doesn't bring insurable items back to you when you res (sometimes.) The Shift Enabled way does things slightly differently which coincidentally stops the bug. The bug has hit me before I used the enable shift option, but not since.

Only incident which really stuck with me was during a EM Event on Drachenfels. Whoever remembers it, it was the one with Max in the Orc Fort outside of Cove.

Many people were hit by the insurance bug, some had one item that was affected and it went up till the whole gear lying in the corpse. Due to the countless corpses on the ground, it was nearly impossible to find your own again. Even the EM was there only in a robe, because he couldn´t find his corpse. :-/

So it´s probably something with the client not being able to handle something, and if there really is a 3rd party program out there I´d think it somehow tricks the client.. *scratches head*
Makes no sense, but maybe it´ll help someone else figure out what causes it to happen.

I have a few rings better then that *eg* The one I use with my orny is:

faster casting 1
faster cast recovery 3
defence chance increase 14%
lower reagent cost 19%
and something else I can't remeber now. will post it later if I can remember.

I have a few 1/3 mage rings with lrc actually. I mainly use them on my bard though, of all things. My bard does not have magery, he uses Chiv and is full compassion Knight with spellweaving. Very fun combination.


any that you would be willing to make a deal on? if so please send me a private message with the ring stats that you have and the price for each if you would please i would greatly appreciate it

I'm sorry to tell you: that is bs. Think about it a little bit, the CLIENT doesn't take items to your backpack in any manners. The SERVER (Osi) does that stuff. Else, hackers would be able to steal items from people with nearly no impediments.

The client only sends and receives packets (information), and draws graphically the information it receives; it has some minor tools (skills gump for example) but all of them act as Osi tells them to.

Conclusion: the problem, if it really exists, is server side.

Bishibosh, sorry to tell you, but its the truth. The client stores your Bank Box Contents and your Paperdoll Contents. Therefore, its not a server issue, its a client issue. It appeared in a patch about 5 months ago. There have been several attempts to fix it. Since I switched over to the Hold Shift option, and anyone else I know, they haven't been hit by the bug.

Be warned, there is a new bug out there that allows people to kill you twice and get all your armor........ Happened to a guild mate only 2 days ago. He isn't very happy, lost a HoM, an Orny, AoF and a the rest of his armor. Understandbly he isn't very happy.

He had 25 million in his bank. With his account having over 100 mill in total I don't think he has much chance of running out of insurance.

And when someone steals your ornie, HoM and AoF - I'll laugh at you for being so cocky.

Nice ring, yeah good for a pally, but would suit a mage as well. I'm not mocking you, I've seen better, but you could get over a mill for it i guess. depends if someone wants it badly.........

Oh, I know its not nearly on the level of Lady Destinys or anything...the only other 1/3 Jewel Ive ever gotten had like Strength +1 on it and that was it. And that was off a Para Titan, I think :)

Im using it on that char that found it. Stealth Ninja Thief.

I'm not a big jewelry fan, in RL or in game. Most of my jewels suck. I need to take my tamer out to swoops with my luck suit. I can train my beetle and mare then :) I have a chest full of jewels but they are all for dexxers, very few 1/3 jewels.

That's worth about a 1-1.5 mill kettle. It would be more suited for a mage, cause a pally wants one with hci or dci on it.

As for the whole getting killed twice, how is that possible? Wouldn't you have to die, then be res'ed then killed again? And it would be your own choice on whether or not you res, so just don't take it till you get to a safe area? I don't understand how you can be killed twice. If you're dead, you're dead, right?

edit: it sounds more like a variation on the insurance bug. Supposedly if you all your gold is in check form, sometimes it doesn't insure it. Also, what's your friend doing running around with a non-blessed HOM. Come on now.

The bug works as follows, you attack someone, when they are redlined hit them with explosion. Before the explosion goes off hit your character and bring up the insurance gump, now select an insured item on your opponents paperdoll. Do all that before he dies.

Doing this turns off their auto renew insurance. So when they die, they lose insurance on every single item. When they res up, kill them again. Loot em up, run away, reinsure all their stuff. Thats the old version of the bug, now its back, with a slight variation. I'm not sure how to do the bug now, wish I knew so I could get blades stuff back for him.

There are no messages to tell you that your insurance has been turned off, and it works reguardless of your bank balance.

The whole check thing, that only happens if you keep checks in a bag in your bank box. Carry around a house placement tool, you can check your bank balance in the field by selecting 2-story custom house, your balance is in the gump near the bottom.
