How to Connect to UO Evolution Shard

Our development team is excited to present UO Evolution. Our world is a dynamic adventure that will challenge even the best players. Our Staff and Scripters are all professional and mature…we all have a passion for Ultima Online and work on this shard to provide the most enjoyable gaming experience possible.

Make sure you take the time to watch the video below and download the custom client+patch to see all the new artwork, buildings and mounts. If you log in without the proper patch and see the wrong images, you missed a step somewhere. Our shard is very unique and has 1000s of custom scripts and totally new graphics for the monsters and mounts that you have never seen before… it’s well worth the effort!

Shard Core: RunUO 2.1 SA SVN Client
Host Address: and the Port is 2593

In order to connect to the Ultima Online UOEvolution shard, you must first have a couple of programs installed, along with the Microsoft .Net Framework. The video below will explain the steps you need to get playing quickly.

Here is a short video that can help you connect to the shard:

If you have experience with other Ultima Online shards and patching you can follow the quick steps below and get right in the game.

In order to connect to our shard, you must first have a couple of programs installed, along with the .net framework.

UOE Custom Client+Patch Auto Installer
Auto-Installer Custom Patch
Manually Install Custom Patch
Custom Patch Mirror

** Once downloaded please be sure to extract it using WinRar or any suitable archiving software. The usual extraction directory is:
“C:\Games\UOEvolution Custom Client\”

However, you may extract the patch/client anywhere on your hard drive as long as you point your UO Steam (or UO Razor) client to the correct location. ( and port 2593)

Recommended Client Download: (Download and install the Redistributable first)
1. Visual C++ Redistributable
2. UO Steam or Razor

Create a new folder called “Games”on your C: drive. Make sure the folder is empty. Drop our custom patch into this new “Games” folder and unrar it.

Once you have downloaded and extracted our client you will then need to Run UOSteam OR UO Razor and make sure that your “Client Options” and your “Ultima Online” Directories are pointed to the right locations.


You can see that our UO Evolution Custom Client folder is located in the C:\Games folder on our hard drive. Make sure that you change this according to where you extract the client.

Once you have finished configuring UO Razor or UO Steam you can simply click the “Start” button located at the bottom of the client and create your account/login.

If you have any issues with the setup process of our custom client please feel free to come into our discord channel, our staff team would be happy to assist you in getting everything configured.

If you need more detailed instructions, or have trouble with the set up, review the steps and info below:

Follow these easy steps:

Step 1 – Confirm you have .net framework
You need the microsoft .net framework to run properly. Most new computers will have this software, if you have an old operating system you may have to download.

Step 2 – Download Custom Patch with AUTO-INSTALLER
New players need to download our custom client+patch with this easy auto installer.
UO Evolution auto Installer

The auto installer comes with UO Steam. It also has a bonus for linux players to detect the environment and apply a workaround to avoid crashing with UO Steam or UO Razor

This was also tested on a mac with playonmac, it installs and runs fine

* Cleanup of unused files
* Large Address Aware patch (fixes “low virtual memory” warning)
* Includes plain client without encryption to use without assistants
* Includes (optional) UOSteam pre-configured for the client
* Shortcuts on desktop/start for the client and UOS
* Uninstaller and it shows up on Programs & Features
* Registry tweak for Linux/Wine users
* Cleaned up uo.cfg, clean out-of-box experience
* Login.cfg fixed

There is no need to “patch up”. Our patch/client is already set correctly to and comes ready to run. If you used the auto-installer, you should be ready to play>login

If you choose to install manually, follow the following steps:

The following links are to the same UOE patch, but you have to install manually and does not have the auto installer included in the package.

Alternate Step 2 – Download Custom Patch MANUALLY
Full Download, Classic Client+UOE Custom Patch Mirror 2>
Full Download, Classic Client+UOE Custom Patch Mirror 3>

Step 3 – Download Client
If you don’t already have UO Steam Download or Razor Download download it now.

Step 4 – Unrar the Custom Patch to a folder on your computer

You may need WinRar to open the client patch files

Create a folder on your C: drive and name it “Games” for this example

You now have a place to drop the rar patch file into located at C:/Games

Unrar/Unzip the downloaded patch/client into the Games folder, it will auto create a folder called “UOEvolution Custom Client”

Step 5 – Point client to shard
Open UO Razor, AssistUO or UO Steam and set the shard server to and the port to 2593

Next, use the browse button to point to the UOEvolution custom client folder that was created by the auto installer. It usually is found in the C: > Games > UOEvolution Custom Client

Step 6 – Log In
Open UO Razor, AssistUO or UO Steam and log in. You can now create your account.

NOTE: This UOE Custom Client will be a separate client download, and will not effect any other clients you may have on your computer. This new UOE client+patch can be used only to connect with the custom UO Evolution Shard.
