Welcome to the wonderful world of Ultima Online – Britannia Server! You have traveled long to reach this goal, and this will be your guide in learning the basics of functioning in this world. In this guide I will describe a bit how to choose a client, create your character, present the basics of a character (moving, plundering, fighting), which can be done with the help of individual skills, statistics in the game, equipment and a few other things that can help you. Start discovering and learning the rest, however you choose.
1.First, choose the type of Client you want to play on. It is possible to have both versions of the game
with a new graphic design (recommended)
|Classic – 2D|
with old graphic design – for weaker computers
|link to the installer – UO in the Enhanced version HERE||link to the installer – UO in the Classic 2D version HERE|
After downloading the installer, run it and select the target location, which will save it on your computer. In addition, the game icon should appear on the desktop. Click on it – download and installation of the selected UO version will start.
2.Assistant to run the game
|Enhanced game version UO3DLauncher|
Download link HERE
|Classic 2D game version UO Razor|
Download link HERE
|download, unzip and install the UO3DLauncher file|
(when installing, select the language of the English installer
[Ie. option “ingilizce”] and confirm the choice [button “tamam”] –
the rest of the installer will already be in English).
|download and install the UO Razor program following the steps of the installer|
Some antivirus programs can classify the assistant as a potential risk because it contains the “.exe” executable file. Therefore, in the case of connection problems with our server, we recommend giving .exe files to the trusted program clause options in the anti-virus options. Similarly, in the case of problems with entering the server, we recommend that you check whether your firewall and anti-virus (eg Windows Defender) is not blocked port number 2593 – please add it to the list of exceptions. In case of no effect – we recommend completely deactivating the anti-virus / firewall for the duration of the game.
3.Starting the Game
|in the case of the Enhanced game version:||in the case of the older version of the game – Classic 2D:|
|– we start the game with the shortcut UO Enhanced Luncher,|
which after installation will appear on your desktop
(to connect we do not use the shortcut of the game itself
i.e. the “Ultima Online Enhanced Client” shortcut);
In the window that opens, you should:
– in the field UO SA Client path choose the location of the installed game:
[uosa.exe file] – if it is different from that given;
– enter the server’s IP in the server field: 22.214.171.124
– in the port field: 2593
– press PLAY
After launching the game, you can freely shape the screen elements,
including expanding the game window, moving and blocking elements (windows / bars).
Additionally in the options menu (esc button)
You can also change the way you display bags and containers, health bars, mana, etc.
You can do it by including “classic” settings in the option menu tab (/ user settings / legacy) and Advanced settings in the options menu tab (/ user settings / healthbars / Status Window Style).
|– we start the game with the Razor program installed.|
In the Razor window, enter the following numbers in the server and port fields:
Server IP: 126.96.36.199
Server port: 2593
We check the “Patch client encryption” option before pressing the OK button (unless it has been selected by default), but do not check the “Use OSI encryption” option.
Already in the game – to improve the comfort – you can increase the game resolution and dimensions of the game window (in the UO / graphic settings [display / game play window size]).
After starting the installed assistant, the server login window will appear. Enter your own login and password (they do not have to be logins / passwords identical to those on our website) and the account on the game server will be automatically created**. Create your character and start the adventure!
** An attempt to create an account with the login already in use will fail, please choose a different login in this case.
Check the box below next Click on the text Continue for Enhanced version or Next arrow in the case of Classic version
Then the server selection will pop out
It is easy to guess that only Britannia will be selected and we click NEXT
Time for our first character. I invite you to read our guide describing how to create a character.

In addition, We would like to inform you that as of February 19, 2021, the version of the UO required for a proper game on Britannia will become the latest version of the game marked with the number:
UO Enhanced 3D – 188.8.131.52 (or later higher)
UO Classic 2D – 184.108.40.206 (or later higher)
If you have an older version – please immediately update Ultima installed on your computers by using the uopatch.exe file in the game folder.
The number of the currently installed version of the game is displayed on the login panel .
Using an older version of the game will prevent you from connecting to the server (kick the game client)
As of February 20, 2020, users of the classic 2D version of the game can use the special overlay (in beta) enriching the capabilities of this – older – version of Ultima.
Details – how to use the overlay – can be found at this link.
If at the start of the game you will get a message about the missing file d3dx9_34.dll or other similar .dll file, install DirectX End-User Runtime available at the link – https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35
This will install a DirectX package that also contains older versions of the libraries used by the game.
In connection with the information received by some players, that one of the files of the latest UO Enhanced 3D version can be falsely considered by antyvirus softwares as malware (eg Bitdefender does) which can block the game – we recommend that you specify Ultima folders or at least uopatch.exe, uosa.exe and uosa_tc.exe files – as trusted folders (applications) in the list of your anti-virus exceptions.
After completing the game download and installation process, close the installer window (do not press PLAY)
