Hello,

first of all I want to thank you for developing this amazing client!

I want to kidnly ask you, is possible to get wrking this client with older UO LBR and MULs, that are older?
I am running UO Shard now on UO LBR and client 3.0.6m version, because we are stuck at SphereServer 99z8.

Thank you!

UltimaXNA isn't really that playable yet
to be the only client for a shard

unless content was deliberately removed from the client, running on a recent build of RunUO and a client that's basically working on modern systems but re-creating the atmosphere of LBR would be the easier way around
like T2A and UO:R are doing
regarding UltimaXNA, it would probably be possible to use LBR content with minimal changes unless something major happened after it

There was RC version few months later, or no? I thought that it is playable as main client now.

most of the things are there, sure
though you could direct more developers in here to get UltimaXNA finished
at least for the subset of features you might need on your LBR shard

@Desttro Good morning! The client isn't ready for use in a production environment. That said, it should run just fine with any muls, including older ones. :)

@ZaneDubya Good morning, thank you for message. Hmm, when I will be at home I will send here error message what I am getting, but when I start original Client.exe - everything works, but successfully compiled UltimaXNA is not working with these muls :worried:

oldest full installer I've found is 4.0.6a which isn't in .iso form

@hifi I think that LBR (clean install without patches) version is 3.0.6j, but I don't know this 100%. I will check that when I will be at home, because on my HDD i have original LBR installer (no .iso form), will made clean install and I will tell you version. Also I can provide download link

that's the thing, it's not very legal to handle data that hasn't been released by the publisher on the internet, like the old cd-roms of uo
I know they don't really care but it still bothers me ;)

I understand, but this is the only way how to play on our shard, because we are stuck on old sphereserver and this shard is heavily modified to Tolkinen's LOTR world, and there is only little bit of similarity to original UO.

To clarify - is it a problem with loading the client, or does the client load but not connect? I know that the UO packet protocol has been remarkably stable over the years... but I'm sure there have been minor changes. We're targeting client version 6.0.something - if the 3.0 server expects a slightly different set of packets, then UXNA would not be able to connect.
Off to work. Have a good one :)

I just like that i can get rid of that large room panel now
<-- over here

@hifi
Oct 31 2016 17:38
yeah, noticed
but there's really no reason for me to close it when the chat space is huge on fullscreen anyway
and I do change between rooms quite often
at least there's no tree view anymore
and they are neatly in one list

Ugh, I really screwed the pooch with the party system integration. I made multiple changes totally unrelated to the party system in the same branch, and now it's difficult to disentangle them.
Lesson learned. Hopefully :|
Hopefully I'll have it merged this evening!
... and a lot of other stuff, as well ;)
