Patch Notes

We are in the final stages of testing the latest client patch. If all continues to go well, we will release this client patch tomorrow, January 18th, at approximately 3pm CST. Note that this is a client patch and not a server publish. The features currently in Testing For The Next Update will require a server publish and will not be activated with this client patch. A date for the server publish is not set at this time.

This client patch will include the following:

  • A fix to resolve the client ghosting problems.
  • A fix to resolve regular and mini health bars not updating properly.
  • Activating the MyUO button. This will open your browser and bring you to the MyUO page.
  • Character customization that allows you to save settings based on a per character basis, including:
    • Speech and emote colors.
    • Macro settings.
    • Skill groupings.
    • Spell icons.
    • And many other configurable save options.
  • The "save password" feature will no longer be available and the password will be removed from all config files. Note that this will NOT affect players who already have the option checked until they uncheck it.
  • The default skill gain notification is now set to 0.1 instead of 2.0.
  • You will no longer be dismounted from your horse when you log in.
  • Positions of windows and icons will be saved including:
    • UO window size and position. This will also automatically maximize the window if you log out while it is maximized.
    • Gameplay window position.
    • Spellbook and Spell icon positions.
    • Location and size of radar.
    • Skill window.
    • Location of all open containers, including "sub-containers."
    • Location of minimized containers.
  • Fixes for client stability issues related to crashing when in full screen mode.

Players currently experiencing difficulties patching the newest version of the Ultima Online client should check the following:

  • Be sure to use Ultima Online version 1.26.2b. If you are attempting to patch using any version of the Test Client, you will not be able to patch until switching to the most recent live client version. If you have deleted your previous version of Ultima Online, or have overwritten it with the Test Client, you will need to reinstall UO from your CD.
  • Check the "Patch" directory within your Ultima Online directory (the default location is C:\\Program Files\Ultima Online\Patch). This directory should be empty. Any files in this directory should be deleted.
  • If you are unable to connect to the patch server at all, and are using an original (Non-T2A) version of Ultima Online, you may need to update your verinfo file. For details on updating this file, please see the information posted at
  • Run a virus scan on your computer. Undetected viruses may cause conflicts with patching Ultima Online.

If after trying the above, you are still experiencing difficulty patching the Ultima Online client, please contact Technical Support at
