How to Connect
From UO Evolution
UPDATE: We just upgraded our PHP 7.0 and it seemed to have broken all of our outgoing links on the WIKI. We are aware of the issues and are working through the upgrades. We have working versions of all the links on the main website "connect" section (uoevolution.com)
you can cut and paste this link address www.uoevolution.com/?page_id=2
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!

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.
Software to Download
Patching your UOE custom client is highly recommended to play on UO Evolution. Without the proper patch, you won't be able to see the custom buildings, clothing, items, mounts and colors.
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 188.8.131.52 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
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 play.uoevolution.com 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.
UO Steam or Razor, 3rd Party Client Loaders
UO Steam is the recommended client: UOSteam Download
Razor is also available: UO Razor Download
UO Steam and Razor are easy Client Loaders and helps make game play much easier with the added use of hotkeys, macros, and much more.
NOTE: When loading these programs, start by right clicking the icon on the desktop and select "run as administrator"
Double-click AssistUO, UO Razor or UOSteam and open it up, look at the gump
Under the data directory click browse and navigate to the new UOE folder you just created
For the Host Address, put play.uoevolution.com and the Port should be 2593
Connecting to the game is as easy as ever, all you have to do is make up an account name, and password. You will then be allowed to create your character and move into the game world.
NOTE: if you are running the operation system Vista Or Windows 7 you many need to right click the program and select "run as administrator"

Updated Hue File
Many old players asked for an expanded hue file with more color choices, so we made this new file for you to add to your existing patch.
You only need this IF you have our old client. If you have recently downloaded our patch/client it is already included and installed!
