<p class="Section">Since UOX3 does not accept incoming connections from encrypted UO clients, you must find a way of removing the encryption from the client before you can login. To do that, you can use one of the many tools that exist for just this purpose. </p>
- <p class="Section"><a href="" title="ConnectUO Homepage">ConnectUO</a> is one such program, and is the one recommended for use with UO clients connecting to UOX3 shards. It removes the encryption at run-time only, and does not alter your default UO client permanently in any way.</p>

+ <div class="SectionHeader">Configuring ConnectUO </div>
<p class="Section">After downloading and installing ConnectUO, start it up. You will be greeted by a download bar - worry not, that is just ConnectUO retrieving the latest updates and/or list of privately run UO shards. </p>
<p class="Section">Once the download is finished and ConnectUO is started, click on the link named &quot;<strong>Add Local Server</strong>&quot;. Enter a name for your shard (visible to yourself only, so doesn't matter what you write), as well as a description if you feel like it - before moving on to the important part.</p>
<p class="Section">Under &quot;<em>Host Address</em>&quot; you must enter the IP-address to your UOX3 shard. If your UO client is situated on the same computer as your UOX3 shard, enter <em></em> as the IP. If the UOX3 shard is on a different computer, for instance on your LAN or even on the Internet, enter the LAN/Internet-IP for the shard instead. In all cases, set the &quot;<em>Port</em>&quot; address to <em>2593,</em> unless you have specifically changed that in UOX.INI.</p>
<p class="Section">Also make sure the &quot;<em>Patch client encryption</em>&quot; checkbox is enabled. When done making all the changes, click the &quot;<strong>Add</strong>&quot;-button to add your shard to your ConnectUO list of favourite shards. </p>
- <div class="SectionHeader">Logging into your Shard </div>
<p class="Section">On the &quot;<strong>My Favorites</strong>&quot;-list in ConnectUO, you should now see your shard listed. To launch the UO client, simply doubleclick on the name/icon of your shard in said list, and ConnectUO will automatically remove the encryption from the client as well as configure it for logging onto your specified shard.</p>
+ <div class="SectionHeader">Configuring Razor </div>
+ <p class="Section">After downloading and installing Razor, start it up. You will be greeted by a welcome screen. Leave "<strong>Load Client:</strong>" on "<em>2D Client (Auto Detect</em>" unless you encounter a problem with auto-detecting the client, or you have multiple clients installed. Make sure the "<strong>Patch client encryption</strong>" flag is checked, then enter the IP and port of your UOX3 shard. If you're running the UO client on the same computer as your UOX3 shard, enter <em>127.0.01</em> as IP and <em>2953</em> as port. </p>
+ <p class="Section">Once you've completed the initial setup of Razor, click on the <strong>Okay</strong> button to launch the UO client. You should now be ready to log onto your UOX3 server by entering the username and password you specified during the UOX3 setup process.</p>
+ <p class="Section">Razor also includes a whole host of extra options you can enable or disable as you see fit.</p>
+ <div class="SectionHeader">Logging into your Shard </div>
<p class="Section">When the UO client has loaded, type in the username and password which you specified during the <a href="installation.html">Installation/Configuration</a>-process for UOX3, and you should be good to go!</p>
<p class="Section">One thing you might notice when you log in for the first time, is that your world is void of any Non-Player Characters (NPCs) as well as any decorative/usable items. You can fix this by either populating your world manually, or by downloading premade spawn and/or worldfiles from the <a href="" title="UOX3 Downloads-page">UOX3 Downloads</a>-page.</p>

<div class="SectionHeader">Installing UOX3</div>
<p class="Section">To install UOX3, first download the All-In-One UOX3 package from the <a href="" target="_blank">Downloads</a>-page at <a href="" target="_blank"></a>. You'll need a program capable of unpacking .ZIP files to extract the files from the package, so if you don't already have one, and your Operative System doesn't natively support these files, go download WinZip.</p>
+ <p class="Section"><em>Note that there may be newer UOX3 versions available since the the latest release, these versions can be accessed by downloading the sourcecode from the CVS and <a href="" title="Forum-thread on How to compile UOX3d">compiling it yourself</strong>, or by downloading an <a href="" title="Link to UOX3 experimental build">experimental build</a>. It's recommended that you download the latest experimental build if it's much newer than the latest release-version, to get the latest fixes and additions to UOX3.</em></p>
<p class="Section">Once that is out of the way, doubleclick on the All-In-One zip-file and click the 'Extract' button, or click on the Actions-menu and select &quot;Extract&quot; from there. Now enter a path to where you want the UOX3 files to be unpacked. Popular choices include C:\UOX3 or D:\UOX3. Once all the files have been extracted, proceed to the next section of this document. </p>
<div class="SectionHeader">Configuring UOX3</div>
<p class="Section">After extracting the UOX3 files, browse your way to the newly created UOX3 folder using Explorer or My Computer, then double-click the UOX.INI file (if no file-extensions show up for your files, double-click the one named UOX listed as a &quot;Configurations Settings&quot;-file) to open it in a text-editor. </p>
