    UO Gateway Status

    Funny when the server got hacked I thought "I bet there will be a big vulnerability found soon" and sure enough this came out. Only thing this seems to only affect java applications, but I do wonder if somehow some other applications impliment the same code. Apache itself, dovecot, postfix...

    UO Gateway Status

    Yeah that is the plan, I am thinking of doing only uogateway for now. I won't even do DNS or mail, I will leave that all on the shared host. Then I can slowly reintroduce the other sites, ideally after doing full code audit. Will also downsize as lot of my sites I can just keep shut down as...

    UO Gateway Status

    Thanks to those of you who have offered to take it over. I am still letting this brew for a bit, as deep down I kinda want to try hosting it again, so I may in fact do that once I can figure out how the hacker got in the 2nd box. I am also tempted to just try again, but tweak security...

    UO Gateway Status

    That could not hurt, I can do that. In fact... I am wondering if maybe just linking to an existing site is the easiest approach, at least for now. Gives me more time to ponder this entire situation before I officially decide to give it up. I can always relaunch way later down the line and...

    UO Gateway Status

    So I've been pondering about this, and I want to look at handing UOG to someone in the UO community that can be well trusted to continue running it well. I still want to keep the domain for now though, but I would renew it for the max time it lets me, and point it to new owner's DNS. I'd...

    UO Gateway Status

    Just a heads up that the server that hosts UO Gateway, along with many other services I run got hacked and trashed. It was an old distro that was well overdue to be upgraded but while migrating to a whole new server and newer distro, it got hacked again. Clearly some kind of sophisticated...

    RUNUO.COM

    Yeah have to say RunUO probably got the community to what it is today. There is a lot of the back end stuff that they figured out from the very start that even other emulators have built on over the years. Like if you go deep into the core there's some very advanced stuff like figuring out the...

    RUNUO.COM

    Actually now that I look at it further the forum does appear to be from one of the previous RunUO sites, probably from when Demise, Hybrid, Connectuo etc was all combined into a single login. I see lot of familiar names and posts going back pretty far. So yeah this may very well be legit. I...

    RUNUO.COM

    Is this confirmed 100% that it's actually the real Ryan/Mark and not just someone trying to impersonate them? Reason I ask is because the domain expired and went for auction, sold for $1,265.00, then went up for sale for $14,995. So it seems odd they would have let it expire only to buy it...

    Problems with pollers and MONO

    I run UO Gateway, is there anything at my end I can do for this to work without a core mod? Ex: is it like a packet timing issue or something? Seems odd it would only affect when it's under emulation though, it should technically be the same code right?

    Packet List?

    Says updated in 2010 though, a lot of stuff has changed such as IncomingMobile and what not since SA/HS. I'll check it out anyway though. My shard is far behind as far as packets go, I'm at 7.0.16.1 and want to support latest client before the next expansion comes out or I'll simply be too...

    Packet List?

    Is there an updated list like this but for the latest client? I'm working on making my shard compatible with latest client and it would prove very useful.

    Map data question

    Cool thanks, I'll check those out.

    Map data question

    Ah ok so any time there is an update (at least to the map/statics) I should use the converter to create the mul files for the server? Where would I find this converter? I always want to ensure maps match on server. Ex: if EA adds a wall or changes map somewhere I want to make sure the wall...

    Map data question

    I can't remember where I read this but I heard that UO does not use mul files anymore for map data and such, and that the format changed. Is this the case? If yes how is this handled now days? My shard is still RunUO and has too many modifications to actually update to anything else, but I...

    Hi all

    I'm Red Squirrel, been in the UO scene for probably over 10 years now, I run the shard Age of Valor which I had previously closed and released all my source code and recently I decided to reopen it. Thought I'd join this community to help and get help when needed and generally have a shard...

    I have a few questions...

    /r/ultimaonline seems to be ok with advertising a shard. Read their rules to double check. There's also UO Gateway. http://www.uogateway.com. Lot of other top site lists as well.
