    I am curious. Do you guys play classic with uoa?

    Or do you prefer the EC with Pincos? Are there other better options than Pincos?

    Asking for friend. LoL

    First and foremost it does not matter what client you use just as long as you play UO. I use UO and because of the crafting menus I don't need UOA really, I do use EC only when sorting containers as it is easier to make them neater for display. Now I will just say this, if I could use the EC client with the CC Graphics I would switch in a heart beat. It would IMHO be the best of both worlds.

    I use plain, vanilla EC.
    It is enough for my needs.

    EC, tried Pinco's but it loves updating on me every time. Would use Pinco's more if it didnt do that.

    CC. Would love the expanded macros/features of EC but hate it’s appearance. Too me EC just isn’t UO.

    I use EC because of the easier containers and the interface. If I could use the EC client with the CC Graphics I might be in real trouble as I currently am limited to about 2.5 hrs of playing before the graphics make me truly queasy. With that combo I might become lost in the game for much longer periods.

    EC used to give me a bit of motion sickness, I set max fps to 30 now I don't get that effect. Everything just runs smooth still thankfully. I prefer EC for the features and larger play screen.

    20 posts in and nobody has suffered a psychotic break, kudos!

    EC with Pinco's UI. CC only to write in books and make sure outfits don't look clowny in that client.

    If they just pasted the CC graphics over the EC client I'd give it a try.

    I use both regularly. Both have certain things i like. If I was allowed id make a client that meshed the two together.

    If I remember, Pinco told you how to fix this, I had the same problem, followed his instructions and was fixed immediately.

    I have EC default but have the mods for Cartographer and mods for scalable T-Map installed on top of it. So technically I run the cartographer modded client 99.9% of the time although I only actually run cartographer maybe once a week for alliance stuff. The tmap mod is also installed into the carto mod as well as me having it set up as a ui on it's own. Did that to ensure the mod ran before I dumped it on top of the carto mod. Gets very complicated :p

    I have EC + Pincos which I use only when requiring to harvest plants.

    upload_2018-6-13_12-3-56.png

    I have the cc installed ONLY for writing books which I do rarely. I can't play this client any longer lol, wouldn't know how to run it as it has been over 10 yrs since I did. I would never find anything in my house either as once you set up all your containers in the EC items will never be found in the cc.

    This would be a good start. I even made a mock up example of the CC graphics with the EC user interface.

    [​IMG]

    This is setup in full 1080p resolution with the gameplay window set at 720p.

    I would not play UO anymore if the CC graphics were pasted over to the EC - I hate the jerky movements and the graphics look like out of one of those C64 games

    Lets be realistic - both graphics are total crap - they should have atleast switched back to the Third Dawn client after cancelling KR - the "workability" of the EC is ok.. though, just the graphics are much to blurry

    If they had made the KR client work like the EC works now and made it slightly more HD then that would have been perfect - the graphics were actually on the whole quite good in KR - just (apart from the movement and the bugs at release) it was too blurry and some colors were a bit off

    In this day and age it should be possible to have an isometric HD client !...........

    The Third Dawn client was far from perfect also but if they had worked on it more..........

    I use Classic with UOA 99.9% and the rest I use EC for when I want to buy something and can't see it in the pack of the vendor and to find a healer when they have decided to move after 20 years of occupying the same 8x8 spot. :D I did do some taming early on using EC too, the one button clicking was nice for a few of the actions.
