  1. Let me suggest that you read our TOS and AUP before asking or posting about so-called 'free shards'. We're an official fansite. We have no affiliation with any 'free shards'. We do not offer support for any 'free shards'. Because of our official affiliation with Broadsword, we do NOT allow discussion of 'free shards'. Consider this your only warning. It's a get out of jail free card. You're getting it because you actually made a polite post. Such posts are more than welcome as they relate to the official game. I'm going to make 2 suggestions - 1) You managed to find the free-shard
  2. It was replaced with GGS in 2002. I'm pretty sure I remember it being in game pretty much from the beginning. It was definitely before Renaissance, and I'm pretty sure it was before T2A.
  3. Nobody that hasn't wanted to get perma-banned.... Not going to pretend the program doesn't exist. Would appreciate it if you followed site rules and not mention it again. Thanks.
  4. Typical? No. Does it happen? Yes. Nothing to worry about. LS is an old lady, and sometimes falls down, but so far, she's always gotten back up again.
  5. Did you install the latest version of DirectX 9? It's not installed by default w/Win7 (or 8, 8.1 or 10...) and is needed to run the EC.
  6. Yes, there are many so-called free options out there, and many places to discuss them. Here is not one of them. And just a friendly reminder - if not for the "care-bears", there would be no need for these forums, or any of the other official fan-sites, because UO would have shuttered over a decade ago. So, as a friendly reminder, that particular insult, or others of a similar ilk are also not welcomed here. Thanks.
  7. Please ask before advertising... but thanks for the costume tips. I'm sure folks will enjoy it.
  8. You're going to have to provide a bit more information as to the date - and for the record, Bodies was released in 2001. Renaissance came out in 2000. https://www.google.com/search?num=30&safe=off&q=drowning+pool+bodies+ultima+online&oq=drowning+pool+bodies+ultima+online&gs_l=serp.3...100325.109946.0.110313. returned a few hits, but none that I could see before 2009. Good luck with your search.
  9. Would that be This ? Because if it's anything that's in violation of either our or Broadswords TOS/AUP, this will be a short lived topic. I strongly suggest you read and understand them before continuing, even though you've already acknowledged them. Thanks.
  10. This thread has already been hit once with a 3 year necro - now we have a 2 year necro. Should have been locked the first time - it is locked this time.
  11. Less than 3 months, probably still there. More than 3 months, poof.
  12. Smedley was, and still is, a LOT more accessible, and he's also been a LOT more communicative over the years. Orders of magnitude more. Yeah, he's a ******, but he's honest about it.
  13. I'm kind of beyond being disturbed by anything the people at EA/Mythic/Broadsword do/don't do anymore. Our last savior turned out to be relatively scummy, and ruined (IMO) the reputations of a couple of other sites dedicated to UO and Ultima. There is nobody on the current staff, regardless of which banner was flying over the door, that bothered to pay any real attention to the fansites that didn't have a name that won't be mentioned. And, of course, those devs that DID make the effort to be a part of the wider community were all somehow pushed out. Oh, I'm sure that closing a studio that
  14. Without meaning to sound snarky, people have been saying UO was on the way out since 1999 or so, when Everquest launched. It's still here, and has recently been taken over by a separate company (Broadsword), so I'm not personally ready to sound the death knells yet. Is there a low population throughout the game? Yes, there is. The same holds true for pretty much any game that isn't WoW or Eve Online. The Pacific and Atlantic shards are still fairly busy, and there always seems to be some people on Lake Superior, but if you're looking for hundreds or thousands of people at a time, I'm afr
