While this should take care of the majority of problems, there are undoubtedly more bugs waiting to be found. Unfortunately, this round of fixes require a wipe of the character database, so it will definitely be necessary to create a new account and character to play. Also, the game will remain in Alpha for now, so please continue to submit bugs and/or feedback!

    A player pointed out that there must be a trailing path separator or slash at the end of the path supplied to your Ultima 4 installation. Therefore “C:/GOG Games/Ultima 4” will fail to find the Ultima 4 installation, whereas “C:/GOG Games/Ultima 4/” will succeed. A fix for this will be applied soon.

  2. […] formerly known as Ultima 4 Multiplayer — saw a big client update today. But, if you peruse the complete list of fixes and updates, you’ll probably notice a number of line items that have nothing to do with Ultima […]
