Description

This guide will walk you through the downloading and installation process for Ultima Online with the use of a Launcher. This guide will be compatible for Razor, UOSteam and Sallos. Support can be found in our public IRC. It will automatically keep you up to date and ensure you are up to date on what's happening with the game.

Before you begin, make sure that all instances of Ultima Online clients and related programs such as Razor are closed. If you have an old version of this launcher, it is safe and recommended to overwrite it. Overwriting the UOFLauncher.exe will not cause you to lose any Razor or Client settings.

FAQ

I already have Ultima Online installed. What do I do?

Simply run the launcher, select options, specify the Razor directory (If not done already) and click Patch or Play.

I already have UO Steam, not Razor. How do I make it work?

Run the launcher, select options, specify your UOSteam directory and click Patch or Play.

I already have Sallos, How do I get it to work?

Run the launcher, select options, specify your Sallos directory and click Patch or Play.

Does this work properly with Sallos?

Yes, it will download the latest version of Sallos and continue to keep it patched. (Some graphics will still be broken due to Sallos restrictions)

Is this launcher safe?

Yes, it was designed by the Ultima Online Forever official team. Be sure to check download links to make sure it comes from http://uoforever.com/downloaduoforever.php

I had the old launcher from Beta testing, will that work?

No, download the latest version of the launcher. If you're not sure, just overwrite the old one. http://uoforever.com/downloaduoforever.php

It says Ready to Play but Play doesn't do anything

Make sure that you have selected the Razor, UOSteam or Sallos directories located in the options button.

How do I switch between clients like UOSteam or Sallos?

Click on the options button in the top left corner and select the desired client by clicking its associated icon on the right.

What is Tree hack? Is that legal?

Tree "Hack" was probably a poor choice of words. Tree hack replaces the tree textures to turn them into stumps. It's legal. It's often used by PVPers to give them a better view of players.

I'm stuck in fullscreen mode. How can I change it back?

Close your client and then go to C:\Users\username\Documents\EA Games\Ultima Online Legacy
You may have something besides UO Legacy installed, maybe you have Stygian Abyss.
In this folder you will see folders with the names of all your accounts. You can go into these folders and find the specific character you were logged in as when you went into full screen. You can then either delete their folder (warning: this will remove your other character customisations) or open the uo.cfg from your character's folder and in a text editor and change FullScreen = on to Fullscreen = off.
