    @mental militia you have tree hack enabled.

    If u don't like it and want to see the trees again u can disable it via the same launcher that you used to update (supposedly) but I can't find it there. One of the other launchers posted in this thread will allow u to disable it if u can find it I the version of the ,quencher you are using

    I must admit even I had trouble finding the tree hack after switching over to the UOP files. The mulpatcher is what I used in the past and it wasn't too difficult but for the less computer savvy it might seem daunting.

    Blaine's brought up a good point. Having a well known go to location for info like this would be better than having to search all over to find the info. Other players have also mentioned that it would be very reassuring if the patch notes were diligently updated. There have been several updates that made significant changes to game play that weren't mentioned in the patch notes. It would give the player base peace of mind if the patch notes were documented and updated each time a change is made. If a change is worth the effort to code then it is probably worth the effort to document.

    Ok so I tried installing this on a Win 10 system. The problem I am having is the Install UO Button doesnt work. So since the Install UO button does not work it will not switch to a play button. The launcher was updated. I have installed the correct version of UO and made sure all the paths are correct. No other version of UO is on the system. Is anyone else using a Win 10 system having this issue?

    That install button has not worked once for me either FYI....so it's not just you on win10. I've seen other posts of people complaining that the install uo button from the launcher isn't working for them either.

    anyone have another link to try besides the install uo button from the launcher? The google drive one that was posted here didn't work for me either. I was trying to update but decided to uninstall because updating didn't remedy the graphics issue so thought fresh install would be best. But now I cant even download the client to try a fresh install.

    Tried to download via the launcher with no luck yet. I have downloaded other software in the past couple days. Anyway so I decided to try a fresh install of the old client which I had saved and I got this error after installing:

    System.InvalidOperationException: This Razor installation is corrupted.
    at Assistant.Engine.Main(String[] Args)

    I might try the one from OSI later or tomorrow maybe. But if someone has a copy of the new client maybe you can upload it somewhere or torrent it. The launcher here says a download is in progress (with no progress shown) but never downloads... Thanks.

    before I uninstalled everything..a couple weeks ago.. I did the update and it worked..the tree hack was easy you just click a box that u want. But certain graphics still were not included. For example I could not see the ethy tiger..it was invisible when mounted but if logged out and back in it showed as white horse. but if I dismounted again it was invisible again. So I decided to uninstall completely and delete folders but now cant download the complete client to re-install fresh. So I need the complete client somehow to try it that way.

    @pacrsfan - Tree Hack Option is located under options (top left) in the launcher. Its right by your RAZOR, SALLOS & UOS directory mappings.

    @Lotus; I did that also on my laptop. I uninstalled everything and successfully re-installed everything.

    Download the client the old way per UOF website. Extract the RAR. Install client in default directory - Electronic Arts...... (RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR) - this re-installs Razor also.

    Then, download the UO Launcher from the link in the beginning of this thread (or Skye's link).

    Extract the launcher - Make sure you RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR

    Once launcher is installed, run UPDATE (you may have to do this several times).

    Note: Watch out for the TREE HACK OPTION. Leave this unchecked if you want to see the trees (this got me earlier LOL).

    Hope this helps!!!

    Thanks a lot Metal Militia. Yeah I downloaded the client the old way but looks like razor isn't installing for some reason. A razor folder is created in program files(x86) with 1.84 MB of data. However I get this error when trying to open UOF after the install:

    System.InvalidOperationException: This Razor installation is corrupted.
    at Assistant.Engine.Main(String[] Args)

    then a folder is created in Documents/Ultima Online/Ultima Programs Installed with a notepad file labeled "Crash" with this in the notepad file:

    Exception @ 08-06-15 08:00:59.0921
    System.InvalidOperationException: This Razor installation is corrupted.
    at Assistant.Engine.Main(String[] Args)

    even if I go to update manager with the new layout before I try to open the client it doesn't see anything to update.

    Possibly when I uninstalled and deleted I might of deleted something I shouldn't have?? If no one has any ideas I may have to reformat computer and reinstall windows. Not sure at the moment just want to settle this in next few days somehow.

    Lotus -

    the default location for UO should be "C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Ultima Online Classic"
    the default location for RAZOR should be "C:\Program Files (x86)\Razor"

    Make sure that those apps are actually located where indicated. If RAZOR is absent, create a folder called Razor at "C:\Program Files (x86)", then click the "download" button which will show up by the BROWSE. It will tell you that its in the download queue. Close the option pane and click update again. It should download and install RAZOR in that location.

    Again, I have Windows 7 Professional SP1, 64 bit. Hope this helps!

    Hello Merlin, -O- here.

    1) Open the UO Launcher
    2) Goto OPTIONS (uppler left hand of launcher)
    3) At the line "SALLOS LOCATION", select the location and click BROWSE.
    4) If asked, create a folder at the default location - name the folder SALLOS
    5) Close the OPTIONS pane
    6) Repeat step 2
    7) Notice - there is a Download button next to Sallos now
    8) Click download. That's it.
    9) To access Sallos, repeat step 2 above and click the Sallos option

    Cheers

    So.. how can I get all of the custom content working on windows XP?

    Is there even a way currently? If not, do you plan on supporting XP in the future?

    Ty!

    I doubt they are doing much for windows xp support. It's time for you to upgrade!
