Ultima Online

Ultima Online (UO) is a graphical massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), released on September 25, 1997 by Origin Systems. It was instrumental to the development of the genre, and is still running today. The game is played online, in a fantasy setting similar to that of the other Ultima games that preceded it.

Ultima Online is a persistent universe set in the mythical land of Sosaria after the time of the Avatar's defeat of Mondain. Ultima Online: Renaissance is set after Minax's defeat of Lord British. The worlds that are Sosaria have been split by the powers that are Trammel and Felucca, the moons of Sosaria. Trammel, the land of good, honor, and order, links to Felucca, the land of evil, dishonesty, and chaos via a network of moongates and moonstones. Plots evolve by design of the forces of Order and Chaos (apparently), and provide a great number of experiences for the player. Translation: think MUD with a sprite interface!

Problems with mouse
This can be solved for some clients by setting "MouseThread=off" in every uo.cfg (there are many for each character and one global).
Problems running uo.exe
You can safely use client.exe for the game and run uopatch.exe from time to time manually.
Connecting to free shards
You have to disable encryption for your client:
  1. Either you can find already patched client for your shard (browse the shard forums). And you can run it like the normal one (tested by Plague).
  2. Or you can patch the client yourself using UO Rice (some say this can be only done on Windows and before any patching) and then run the patched client. (suggested by sk8dork, not tested by Plague).
