- Installation Guide -
Whether you've been playing Ultima Online since the 90's or this is the first you've looked into trying it, getting started can be a frustrating ordeal. To simplify the process we've added a guide to downloading and setting up your assist program.
Step One - Download the Custom Client
This is vital to your experience while playing Legends of Sosaria. You won't be able to log in with a client older than ours at all, and with a new one that isn't ours you will have several issues including (but not limited to), invisible walls, invisible monsters, and invisible items. The server, without our client, is not an experience we'd wish upon anyone.
To download the client click on the download button in the main menu above and select to download the client. Extract it to c:/ProgramFiles (x86)/. It should create a folder called 'Legends of Sosaria' there and place the game inside it. The client is fully patched. Do not attempt to patch it further as this will only result in having to start the process again.
Step Two - Choose and Download your Assist Program
We have provided links to the UO Steam and UO Razor pages on our DOWNLOADS page. Which you choose to use is up to you. If you're uncertain which to use, don't worry. Try both. You will quickly develop a preference. Both require a relatively small download and quick installation of their own, and both should be set to run as admin.
Step Three - Run the Game
The game is launched through your assist program. Run either Steam or Razor to reach the setup screen and then make your setup match the illustration below and click Start or Okay.
Step Four - Create yourAccount
If everything has been done correctly you are now seeing the login screen. The first time you enter information into the fields here, and click 'Login', your account is created, so it's important that you remember what you choose. Each player is allowed only one account. It should be noted that if more than one account is required (if there is more than one player in a single household) then use the help menu in game to page staff to create the additional accounts for any additional players. We are more than happy to accommodate this. Keep in mind if the requested User Names and Passwords are in the original page then the process will be quicker.
Once you've entered the account information you will see a screen where you log into the shard. Simply click on Legends of Sosaria here to progress.
Step Five - Welcome to LoS!
You should now be sitting on the character creation screen. From here things are pretty self explanatory. Choose your race, gender, starting stats, skills, and set your name. Use the arrows to navigate the menu until you're done. Further information for first time logins can be found int he New Player Guide.
