Can i play with this uogateways this freeshard without loosing the ability to connect later to OSI again?
Yes! Simply use the link in UOGateway. it automatically creates a login.cfg that is used for getting on Alexandria. when you don't use that link, you will attempt to login to OSI, as normal...
- Normally a freeshard needs own files (maps, own clients). This one too?
not this one, no downloads or anything. What you're refering to is called a patch server. actually, there really aren't that
many freeshards that do this, i've found. Rivan(sp?) would be about the most extreme case, but as I said there are actually very few where a patch is required.
anyway, really easy to get on with UOGateway. give it a shot!
