Additional Comments

Here's how you do it: (use winetricks to install d3dx9 before starting) 1. Download UOSASetup_105.exe 2. Run UOSASetup_105.exe. The installer will extract files and present you with a 'welcome' screen. 3. DO NOT SHUT DOWN THE INSTALLER!. If it asks you to update DX, say 'no'. 4. Navigate to .wine and go to drive_c -> windows -> temp. There should be a folder in that dir called 'RarSFX0' or something close to that. 5. In that folder is a dir called 'data1'. Those are the only files (2) you need to install the client. Move 'data1' to your desktop. The rest of the files are just fluff. 6. Cancel the installer. It will delete all the install dirs in windows -> temp, which is why you need to move 'data1' first. 7. Rename 'data1' to 'UltimaOnline' and move it to your Wine folder. You can put it wherever you like, just INSIDE drive_c ;-) 8. Open the folder you moved and there are two files: uopatch.exe and patch.cfg. Run uopatch.exe. It should create some files, uopatch.bin being one of them. If it doesn't start, just run it again. uopatch.exe must kick off uopatch.bin. If it doesn't (you can check in your System Monitor), just run another copy of uopatch.exe (don't close the one already running). For some reason that kicks uopatch.bin into starting. 9. The game will begin patching. 10. When the game is done, just run it and enjoy :-) Note: If you run into patching errors, make sure you don't have more than one copy of uopatch.exe running. While that helps getting uopatch.bin to start, it causes errors DURING patching. You may have to kill the process and restart. You will have to create your own shortcut to the executable. See? No Windows needed :-) BTW, this same installer is used for the new Dark Age of Camelot full client install and you can use the same process described here to install DAoC. I haven't fully tested it yet though.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
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).

Mad for this game

but I don't have a clue as to how to make it work for me.
how to install on current versions
by Nicholas Anton on Monday August 30th 2010, 18:24
Just a fyi...i thought it was completely broken and followed the instructions via bug 21650. What was extracted in my version of the installer was the mythic patching program and NOT the entire program ready to run (no client.exe). However, and upon running the patcher it seemed to just exit without error.

I gave up and worked on my computer for a bit, then went to get something to eat.

When i got back...the client was installed. It's not broken..just really...really slow.
