Help with map files

I need help.

I have a shard already configured in POL 096, a backup of mine for over 10 years.

Reviewing my backups during our quarantine season for the corona virus I found the shard and decided to play.

But I did not find the correct files to adjust in the Ultima Online client. And there are a number of bugs in the game because the statics and other map files are probably not correct. As I am not very aware, the most I did was copy the MUL files from the POL Word Files folder to the Ultima Online folder on the client, but even so it does not fix the bugs. Several constructions around the map that I don't see and I get stuck while playing.

Can someone give me some help?

thankful
Wotson

You need to run "uoconvert" to create the map and statics files used by POL. This batch file can help you:

https://github.com/polserver/ClassicDis ... almgen.bat

But in summary, you need to convert all configs and at least the "britannia" realm:

Code: Select all

uoconvert multis
move multis.cfg config
uoconvert tiles
move tiles.cfg config
uoconvert landtiles
move landtiles.cfg config

uoconvert map    realm=britannia mapid=0 usedif=0 width=7168 height=4096
uoconvert statics realm=britannia
uoconvert maptile realm=britannia
If you are using older MUL files, then substitute the width and height for

Code: Select all

width=6144 height=4096
And welcome back ;) You can also join us on discord (the link is on the top of the board list).

Thank you very much for the quick response.

Be successful in the commands you entered, but I still can't figure out how to transform them into MUL files to copy to the client.

You can't. Uoconvert is only to generate files used by POL and mul files are used here as a source of information. If you don't have original shard mul files the only way is to redo world to fit some other set of files.

Thank you. I tried so hard that I managed to get things apparently in order.

But now I have a new problem. I lost the ideal client.exe for my shard. I can access with 6.0.1.7 (Patch 76) works well but does not display items in any bag or bank. If I try with older clients, items appear, but I can't write words.

That's because the core needs to support the newer clients. Your best bet would be to find other client versions or try to upgrade the scripts to a newer core.

Thank you.

Is there a known client repository for me to test them?

Sorry for the insistence.

I already got the MUL files and the right client that works everything.
Except TEXTS.

When I enter the game if I type something, the client freezes and closes.

Im not sure about POL096 or the crashing.
But i think for text you need ti delete or rename speech.mul from the client.

Thank you again, but I don't have speech.mul at the root Uo client.
