Start playing in absolutely no time by following these instructions to connect to Pestilent UO using the classic client. If you're still having any trouble, please reach out to the server community and staff via our Forums.


SERVER INFORMATION

Server: play.pestilent.org

Port: 2593


DOWNLOAD

Download and install the Ultima Online Client (recommended: 7.0.20.0+)


SELECT AN ASSISTANT PROGRAM

Choose between one of the following assistant programs (or try both), which will assist with connecting as well as providing additional functionality within the game (click links for direct downloads):

UOSteam

  • If are having any issues starting up UOSteam after you have downloaded and installed both UOSteam and the Ultima Online Classic client (above), please use the following link to ensure you have the correct version of the Microsoft Visual C++ run time libraries.

Razor

  • If are having any issues starting up Razor after you have downloaded and installed both Razor and the Ultima Online Classic client (above), please use the following link to ensure you have the correct version of Microsoft .NET Framework is 4.0 or newer.

CONNECT USING UOSTEAM

  • Always run UOSteam as an administrator. To do this, find the UOSteam executable in its respective directory (or the shortcut on your desktop if you created one), right click on it, and select 'Run as administrator'. If you want this program to always run in administrator mode, right click on the UOSteam executable and select 'Properties'. Check the box under the Compatibility tab labelled 'Run this program as an administrator' then click Apply or OK to save changes.
  • Once you see the start screen after opening UOSteam, change the Shard address to play.pestilent.org and also make sure the port is set to 2593.
  • Check the 'Remove encryption' box under Client Options. Leave '(Auto Detect)' in place under both Client Options and Ultima Online, unless you have multiple Ultima Online installations. In that case, make sure you point UOSteam to the correct Ultima Online directory (under the Ultima Online section).

  • Click 'Start'. Before attempting to log in, make sure you check the 'Negotiate features with server' box under the General tab in UOSteam.

  • The only thing left to do is enter an account name and password of your choosing to begin playing! Accounts are automatically created, but remember there is a two(2)-account-per-IP limit. Please take this opportunity to review our Rules page as you embark on your adventure.

CONNECT USING RAZOR

  • Always run Razor as an administrator. To do this, find the Razor executable in its respective directory (or the shortcut on your desktop if you created one), right click on it, and select 'Run as administrator'. If you want this program to always run in administrator mode, right click on the Razor executable and select 'Properties'. Check the box under the Compatibility tab labelled 'Run this program as an administrator' then click Apply or OK to save changes.
  • Once you see the start screen after opening Razor, change the Server address to …coming soon! and also make sure the port is set to …coming soon!.
  • Check the 'Patch client encryption' box under Client Options. Leave '(Auto Detect)' in place under both Client Options and UO Data Directory, unless you have multiple Ultima Online installations. In that case, make sure you point Razor to the correct Ultima Online directory (under the UO Data Directory section).

  • Click 'Okay'. Before attempting to log in, make sure you check the 'Negotiate features with server' box under the Options tab in Razor.
