Re: Kill Stealing Solutions

Personally the fact that we allow scripts to have people recall around and kill things without needing to actually be doing the killing themselves seems a much bigger problem than steal killing by a million fold. That scripts are welcome here is one of the two things I like most about UOEX. Plenty ...

Re: Kill Stealing Solutions

I've only had a kill stolen once in the past year and once I explained the rules (and gave him the codex URL to confirm) he apologized and was perfectly decent about it. If you run into the rare person actually being a jerk about it, take a recording and report it. Also bear in mind that the rules h...

Re: Looting time for European players

The game engine has a 500ms (1/2 second) timer on many actions, like drag-drop, where it will refuse the action if the client asks for it faster. You'll get a message in your journal or a "bounce" action. Because of jitter (inconsistency in delay) you usually have to program macros out at ...

Re: Does anyone know (+C?) how para critters work?

As I understand it, the paragon runs the same RNG for dropping a treasure map as an ordinary mob of the same type. If treasure map comes up yes then you get a paragon chest instead.

Re: Keep loosing conn

I am not sure what algorithm UO uses. It might even be a custom more complex one, though I doubt it. UO does not use Dijkstra's algorithm. If it did, it would consistently work instead of becoming confused by large obstacles, distances and elevation changes, and wandering weird and inconsistent dir...

Re: New to server

There's an archery training dagger (one of the green daggers) in the training room which you can use there and anywhere else. If you set yourself to fighting a songbird outside the training room you'll eventually reach 100 but you'll have to keep going back for replacement daggers. Make sure to keep...

Re: How can i recover, pet skill down

Anyway, Nick had the correct but incomplete answer. To raise the pet skills back up (on the pet skills it's possible to raise), just have them train or fight something. As with your own skills they won't be able to get above 75 in the training room but they can go all the way to max on a personal tr...

no one called you out by name... Yeah, you basically did. Not like it wasn't obvious to every reader exactly who you were talking about. I like to poke fun at ppl you like to be snarky or upset about perceived slights That's fair. If someone's going to be snarky ("wiki is your friend") th...

Re: Hello! I lost my main character

It really is Windows version dependent. For example, with Windows 7: Hold shift and right-click the running program icon on the task bar at the bottom of the screen Release shift and left-click "move". The mouse pointer will change to a four-directions pointer. Press an arrow key once. The...

I think there's a keyboard shortcut like "windows key + left" or something.
Different procedures for different versions of Windows. You'll have to find the one that works for your version of windows.

Re: Hello! I lost my main character

The window is not minimized, it's off screen. It's a stupid windowsism not exclusive to UO. Google "move window back on screen"

Re: CHEATING is destroying our great community

yeah, when I have talked to +C (mainly about the chat trolling accounts) he made it clear it's pretty much impossible to keep a new account from being created when they are using a VPN to change the IP address and such I imagine it's tough to do multi-accounting that remains undetected. You'd still...

Re: lost conn

Did the server just crash ? Looks more like the hosting provider went off the air. Traceroutes are in flux. www.ovh.ca is offline. Their DNS servers are offline. Shard.uoex.net may still be up at the data center but unreachable, in which case I'm dead in the halloween dungeon. :( I blame the curren...

Re: Selling Keep and decorations

Keeps aren't selling these days (I have 3 for sale in Trammel) but when they do sell I generally get 3M gold (50 ED). I have no idea about the rares. None of them jump out at me as especially unusual or highly sought-after but I'm not the expert there.
