OK now: Since other people think it is explained too complicated, ill try and give a simple version... or versions.
  • FULL Backup
    You locate where you have installed UO and compress the COMPLETE folder to a ZIP-File. Just right-click on the folder and use "Send to..." & "ZIP compressed folder".
    Now you have a COMPLETE backup of the UO-Folder. If something goes south, just get your old files back from the ZIP-file.
    This method works for EVERY patch and update EA can throw at you.
  • Client ONLY backup
    You locate the folder where you installed UO and enter it. Now locate client.exe, rightclick it and use "Send to..." & "ZIP compressed folder".
    Now if your client gets patched, you can revert the client.exe back to its backed up state.
    This method ONLY works if only the client gets updated and does NOT work if the other files gets updated (Like the last change of the MUL-Files).


I hope, this explains it as simple as possible...

Thanks Orngrimm.

So to ask a quick question - by me downloading the old ML UO client from fileplanet - will the client.exe be usable by EUO

Also - will it be necessary for me to patch up the old client a bit (before I cancel it)

Or should I wait for a EUO update and then backup?

Forgive the ignorance - (you used to be able to disable patching in UOA) - I guess I should have checked

The newest version should now be 7.0.25.7 and latest EUO doesn't work on this version.

Doesn't anyone have version 7.0.25.6 that can share with me? I just formatted my computer and have to re-install UO again so I got 7.0.25.7 and I don't have a backup 7.0.25.6. Thanks all!

Yeah: Simply install UO anew and stop patching with the version you want. Or are we talking 1.xx-Versions here??

Which Windows version do you run? If one of the more current, Previous Versions feature may be active, so by right clicking a file or folder, selecting Properties and clicking the Previous Versions tab you can restore the previous version of it. (Don't forget to make a copy of the file, which you wish to replace with the previous one.)

is there anyway for a newb just starting to gain access to an older client version in order to use easy uo? I'm assuming this is why I can't run any scripts, that the current euo build doesn't support the current client version. I have no tolerance for training craft skills click by click, I hope I can figure something out.

Thanks!

I think the version is current, I can't double check at the moment though. Are you running as admin?

Either way, EUO doesn't save copies of old clients, you'll have to back up the old clients yourself for the future

If you need support with one of my scripts, please post it in that script's thread AND PM me. I can't promise support if you don't do both (it's the only way I know a script needs my attention).

Thanks!

Know whats easier than backing up? not running uo auto patch... instead delete all shortcuts to uo that were created during install and instead replace with shortcut directly to client... been doing it for years... when there is a required update to play it simply wont let you log in to uo thus you must patch to play then u run auto patch from uo folder on hard drive been doing it for years never lets me down never have to worry about backing up client opens without updater simply done

+1

This is how I roll... plus I have it installed on multiple machines so if I do load through UOA or something and get patched I have a backup client on another machine..

You can also load up uoassist with a patched client, then load up another older client, so you have the best of both worlds. Use your patched client with uoassist, and run scripts on multiple other accounts at the same time.
