So our developer wants us to use a not so buggy client we cannot get? I'm at 7.0.31.0 and have no way to get any lower. It is working fine for what I have been doing. But do we have a plan to correct or even control this? If the shard does not keep up on svn updates, what happens to our new players? I helped a five year taking a breaker get going last night.

You should read what he said again.

Alexandria supports the latest client, which is what you are using. It is what I am using and I imagine it is what the majority of players are using.

I did read what he wrote. To keep the client current will require a run uo svn update every time Ea makes a change (kind like Easy Uo does). This will be a lot of work for him to keep up with. In the old days the devs could do it one or two times a year or longer if they wanted by telling us to stop at a certain patch. This is no longer the option. Now do you see what I wrote? and how it will affect new players?

I see where this is going.

*host a download for the supported uo client that lexia runs on.

*answer: that opens up a [censored] of liability and prolly will never happen considering the location and nature of where the server is located.

Every uo patch does not require a runuo Svn update. This is rarely the case.

Until they make another map or file change. I'm not complaining about anything done here, But EA went through a ton of trouble to redo the patching system for a reason. I may be wrong in my thinking.

Bottom line is if we want to move forward, have the shard progress, we have to install the upgrades, such as High Seas. We have zero control over the patching system, and the fact that the old patching system has been shut down means a lot. Most new players who would come to the shard are most likely going to be running the new client, so they would not be able to play properly with the old system anyway. Dex does a great job with keeping up with things, I really do not think there will be any major issues with staying patched.

is it not possible just to stick with the current client and not update the server version?


and moving it to fel would be annoying it is in tram so that non-o/c people cant interfer with an o/c battle.

High Seas took care of not updating, I don't know what all I have lost yet. Time will tell.
