While watching somebody's UO stream on twitch the other night, I noticed their frame rate was a lot smoother than mine. I found out they were using an application to increase frame rate, which I hadn't known was possible before given the game plays at what I believe is 17 FPS. I did a little bit of searching and found FPS AutoPatcher v2.0 and started to play around with it. Although the running animation does seem a little bit goofy, I do find myself enjoying it. I did decide to do a little bit of research here on the forums though and found some controversy on the subject. Some said this application could be considered speed hacking, though others said that by itself it's harmless, and can only be considered speedhacking when combined with another application. Although there were several opinions on the subject, I didn't manage to find (in only a few minutes of checking admittedly) an official response from @Chris to set the record straight. Increasing FPS does feel like a 'quality of life' improvement to me, and while I am beginning to like it - I certainly don't like it enough to risk being banned for being considered a cheater. As I'm writing this, I am assuming a response similar to 'we have a list of approved 3rd party applications, and this one isn't on it', but I still feel compelled to reach out anyway. If the lawman says I'm considered a cheater and liable to get myself kicked off the server I'll remove it right now.
