For almost a year now, a new Ultima Online client has been under development by Andrea Karasho and a very small team of developers with the aim of making a viable alternative to the standard OSI and the other open-sourced unfinished UO clients (Orion and Sallos). Earlier in the year, I worked with those developers to get Razor working with this new client at the same time testing it on UO:R and either report bugs or submit code changes directly to fix UO:R specific bugs. For awhile, a lot of this work was "flying under the radar" so to speak but now that a good number of people either use it full time, or are just trying it out for the first time, a day or two doesn't go by without someone new reaching out to me for information so I thought it would be useful to post a guide for everyone who wants to try out this new client. DISCLAIMERS (PLEASE READ): This client is still in the BETA phase. By the definition, it means you're testing software and you may have issues from something minor you can live all the way to a potential crash. If you aren't willing to accept this, don't use this client. If you are, use at your own risk. This client contains two features that should NOT be used on UO:R as they mimic UO Steam and could presumably lead to a ban, so again, use at your own risk. Grid Loot: This is where a grid will pop up and allow you to loot items on the corpse. On UO:R, this feature is more or less rendered useless due to the way loot drops in non-moveable containers and the usage of Restock to loot. Auto-Open Corpses: The one in Razor behaves as expected so continue to use that one, but the one built into the client will open corpses as you walk by as you see in Steam. INSTALLING/UPDATING: !! If you want to skip all the steps below, you can install it using the UO:R Launcher here: http://www.uorforum.com/threads/beta-uo-renaissance-launcher-seeking-testers.45587/ You can also use a script I wrote a that should make it as simple as possible. You can use this method to either install for the first time, or keep your versions of ClassicUO and Razor on the latest developer/test builds. These steps assume you're on Windows 10. If you are on an earlier version, please be sure to download PowerShell 5.1 first. Open Windows Explorer, create a new folder (ie: C:\ClassicUO) Open a PowerShell prompt to that folder (from Explorer, hold down-shift and right click you might have the "Open PowerShell window here") and execute the following command: Code: Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force; iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/markdwags/Razor/master/InstallClassicUOAndRazor-UORDefaults.ps1')) If this is your first time installing ClassicUO with Razor, you will be prompted to respond to some questions and enter the path you have UO:R installed in (commonly C:\Ultima Online. The installation script will auto-insert all the required values to successfully connect to UO:R. (Optional) Copy your existing Razor Profiles & Macros folders to the new location, also copy over counters.xml You can run that same PowerShell command from the folder and it will update everything without touching your existing profiles and macros. To help, I created a quick video tutorial on how to install everything. If you don't want to do it this way, you can manually download ClassicUO and Razor and set it up that way. The script above is designed to simplify the process, but isn't the only way to get everything installed. GETTING STARTED: With everything installed, go ahead and log in. Here's another short video demonstrating ClassicUO on UO:R as one might experience the first time they log in. It shows off some of the features within the client but be sure you spend time in the Options menu playing with the different settings. If you experience issues, please join the ClassicUO Discord server and report any bugs, feature requests, etc. You can also reply here with any issues and I'll try to help or hit me up on Discord if you want a quicker response. COMMON ERROR: If ClassicUO crashes, it will create a crash log in the root folder where you installed it. If you see this error: Code: System.DllNotFoundException: Unable to load DLL 'zlib': The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E) Head over to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads and download the x64 install. After you install that, try ClassicUO again. UOAM: UOAM will only work if it detects the standard OSI client running, which enabled the UOAssist API support of the app. To use UOAM with ClassicUO, do the following: 1) Open the standard OSI client (with or without Razor) and leave it minimized. You don't have to log in. 2) Open ClassicUO with Razor 3) And finally open UOAM (Locked), and as long as you leave the standard OSI client open, it will track in ClassicUO perfectly. Thanks to @Miatrio for finding this work around. I know losing the use of UOAM to use this new client was a big change for many.
