From Sanctuary Shard
Sanctuary uses heavily customized files as well as a custom third-party client compatible with the High Seas expansion of Ultima Online. As of Memorial Day, 2020, we are using a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT CLIENT! Your previous client will not work. Your old Razor will NOT work. You can not just update your old client! You have to download a NEW client and then install the updates to the new client. The new client comes built in with Razor and it will load AFTER you launch the client. If you are trying to use razor to launch the game you've missed the point.
If you have not logged in since memorial day, your previous install is not going to work, and you can essentially delete it. You need to go and get the Sanctuary Client for High Seas and then apply the updates.
For those of you who are used to downloading and installing the client and then applying custom files, and then launching razor and putting in the shard IP address the process has changed. Instead, we have provided everything, including the client and custom files, into a single download already configured to connect to the server. Further, Razor is built into the Sanctuary Client and launches when the client launches.
|OS||Client (Step 1)||Updates (Step 2)|
|General||This installation includes the third-party Sanctuary client along with the necessary High Seas files. The Sanctuary client has been pre-configured and is ready to connect to the shard -- there should be no need to edit the login.cfg. This Sanctuary client should work on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.||Between now and when we write an auto-updater this is the solution to avoid redownloading the entire client. Always make sure you have UO closed completely before updating. If you have not yet installed the full client please go to Step 1 first.|
|Linux||We have not yet tested the Linux version install and our staff are not prepared to support its use. If you are comfortable with Linux you are welcome to try and get it working and share the steps with us.|
|Old Client||If you absolutely can not get the Sanctuary Client running then the High Seas Official Servers client will work. Read More ..||Under Windows above, follow the same steps for updating.|
We are set up with auto-account creation. You can just download, create an account, create up to 5 characters and play. We do not require applications before you play. In fact, we suggest you just come play -- and then submit an application later. Applications are only required for three things:
- A shape change
- Claiming an Estate
- Registering a special role-play ability.
