Introduction

THIS IS A QUICK HACK.

That being said this code is proof of concept and will be growing as there is time to work on it. This was built as an example of a possible server solution and not just a wrapper to the UOPatch.exe application (localy).

Quickstart Guide

It is rather featureless atm to use it do the following:

  1. You have to find your own patches. Try NEW UO Patches Repository
  2. Copy the patches to the archive folder, in their chronological order.
  3. Download Python 3.3.2 (or latest version).
  4. Download this UOPatchServer.py file.
  5. Create a folder named archive it the same directory as UOPatchServer.py
  6. Copy your patch files .rtp and .pat to the archive folder.
  7. Open your Ultima Online install directory.
  8. Edit vercfg.cfg in a text editor.
  9. Change the line ending in 8888 to localhost 8888
  10. Run python UOPatchServer.py
  11. Wait a moment then run UOPatch.exe or uo.exe
  12. NOTE: Downloads seem slow because the files are sent 1KB at a time.

The patcher will attach to the Python script and begin to transfer the patch files. UOPatch.exe will apply the patches and complete it's operations.

Tests

  • Python Version: 3.2.2, 3.4.2
  • Windows Version: Windows 7 Home Premium (64bit & 32bit), Windows 8 Pro (64bit & 32bit)
  • Linux Version: CrunchBang 11 Waldorf (64bit), Fedora 21 (64bit)
  • UO Client: 7.0.10.3, 7.0.11, 7.0.12, 7.21.1

Issues

  • Notifications from server to the patch client are not implemented.
  • Can we continue an interupted download using the padding reported by a client's request for data?
  • Increase the send block size. Files are sent 1KB at a time which is slow even for local traffic.

In Febuary of 2015 I returned and RunUO has shutdown. I am going to try and bring this project forward with help from the github comunity, and those at PlayUO.
