    RunUO GUIDE STEP BY STEP from scratch for beginners.

    By Justin Davis

    Hello, I am here to offer some help to new people such as myself. Here is what your going to need. I'm going to give you a list of programs that work with my setup, if you download other versions and it doesn't work try these exact versions I am going to list below. There are Six things to download or already have.

    1. You Need the .net 4 framework make sure it is installed before you do anything else.
    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl....aspx?id=17851

    2. RAZOR
    ( https://github.com/msturgill/razor/r...s/tag/v1.4.0.3)

    3. Download or have Ultima Online Client

    4. Download RunUO 2.5 from the link below.
    Don't download it from RunUO because they still have the older 2.3 version posted.
    (https://github.com/runuo/runuo/releases/tag/v2.5)

    5. Download Pandora's box 3 release 3.0.0.5
    (https://code.google.com/p/pandorasbox3/downloads/list

    6. Nerun Distro revision 139
    Be carefull here, there are many old versions, try the link I provide here. Click the blue button on the top right.
    (http://www.runuo.com/community/resou...ro.104/updates)

    OK now you have all six programs you will be installing them in this order:

    1. install the .net 4 framework
    2. install Razor
    3. install Ultima Online Client 7.0.15.1
    4. install RunUO 2.5
    5. install Pandora's BOX 3
    6. install neruns-distro

    Ok now that everything is installed, go to your RunUO folder and make a shortcut of RunUO.exe and put it on your desktop.

    1. Click the RunUO.exe and the server will open up, (do this first before you open Razor or UO Client, it wont work without the server being open.)

    RunUO is just the server, you wont see any UO game visuals here. It's just that black box with the white text in it, the Server itself. to get into UO later you will have to setup Razor and link it to your UO Client, we'll get to that shortly, for now you should just have the RunUO Server opened in front of you.

    2. The first time you open the RunUO Server it will ask you to create an account, put in a user name and password after you type that in, write it down somewhere.

    This will be your game master account when you log into the Ultima Online Client through Razor. If you log into the RunUO server by Razor using a different account, you will be on a normal character and not be in your God Mode Character and can't make any changes. Please use the first account that you created, if you can't remember it delete everything and start again.

    3. OK Now let's move on, open Razor and configure it, Let's tell Razor where the Ultima online 7.0.15 Client is,

    In UO Directory Data in Razor. Type in your path to the 7.0.15 Client
    Mine is simply C:\Ultima Online Classic.

    4. Still in Razor, Under Server type is your local host number, this is your own local computer and you get your localhost address from your ISP or you can try and get it yourself. Go to your start menu on your computer, go to run and type in ipconfig.

    Mine is 10.0.0.3, yours is going to be a different number according to your internet service provider. This you will have to find this on your own. If you don't know just call your ISP and they will tell you the number, when you do, type it into where it says Server.

    5. Under port type in 2593. and Hit OK

    If all went well you are now in the game and connected to the RunUO Server! Take a look at the RunUO Server and see how it connected.

    Continued from last post...

    Ok back to the UO Client:
    At this point you are now in the game and there are only Town NPC's walking around. There are no monsters roaming or in dungeons. This is where you will use Nerun's Distro to Spawn all the creatures in the world.

    And later I will show you how to spawn individual monsters, NPC's, Items or whatever you want individually; using Pandora's Box 3 and RunUO Commands.

    1. You will need to install Neruns Distro into your RunUO folder by copying the Data and Script folders from Neruns Distro into your RunUO folder.

    If you have any questions about this go to the Nerun Distro link I provided at the top but just copy those folders over to RunUO and you should be fine.

    2. Close Everything, Razor, RunUO Server

    3. Reopen Server first then Razor and log back into the game. You should now see the new Neruns Distro Bar commands at the top.

    4. On that bar you will see PremiumSpawner, Click that

    5. Hit the Apocalypse now (Clear All Facets) This will clear out all NPC's and decorations, don't worry we will now populate the world.

    6. Click the Let there Be light Button. You should now have a spawned world , if you have any problems, again please go to the Neruns Distro's link at the top and go through the steps.


    OK so now you want to add you own stuff, this is where Pandora Box 3 comes in.

    1. make a shortcut of Pandora.exe to your desktop

    2. This is very important!!! (right click it and RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR) if you don't run as administrator it will not work right.

    You should now be in Pandoras Box 3. Here you will see many useful buttons to create your own spawns, items, change player skills, Decorate Houses, pretty much anything to create your world.

    I'll go through the different tabs and buttons to help you along.

    Some of the buttons at the top are pretty self explanatory like:

    These are the upper tabs in Pandora's box 3
    Kill Button (Please don't do this to your players lol)
    Resurrect Button: Just as it sounds brings back anything to life.
    Tele: lets you teleport anywhere in your general vicinity
    Hide: Hide or unhide yourself or a player
    Who: tells you who is online
    Props: set properties for items, creatures, ect, more info below on that.
    Set: sets the color you want to put on an object with the color picker beside it.

    OK lets move on to the Lower tabs in Pandora's Box 3

    GENERAL TAB:
    lets you work with players, below are some explainations of the buttons in this tab.

    Bank Button: Hit the Bank button to see what a player has in his bank box

    Players Button: You can look at skills, hide, unhide a player, view equip, house, ect,

    Items Button: you can put all spells into a spell book, link or chain items ect.

    Skills text fields: In the middle you can change your skills or a players skills

    Dupe Button: means you can click on an item an duplicate it either on the ground or in a bag.

    Light Button: this gives more light to the screen for you or for everyone globally

    Restock Button: restocks items just as it sounds

    Misc Button: You can setup a Town Crier and a couple other options

    Messages: bottom left is where you can send out messages to the world



    DECO TAB: HINT: Keep a night table in your pack when decorating to set decorations on top of the table, then lock down the item with the lock button under the Deco Tab and then remove the chair. This has saved me countless times.

    Deco Tab is where you can decorate and add many items to your world, on the left click on any general item, then in the middle choose a specific item, on the right you can add it to the world with the Add Button.

    THE BIG THING IN THE DECO TAB IS FIND: click the find text, here you can search for whatever thing you want by name or id, if you don't find it here go to the ITEM TAB and do the same thing.

    If you have static checked, it will be locked down and unmovable that's what Static is for. if unchecked you can move it around it's unlocked, but you can always lock an unlocked item with the Lock Button.

    You can change the color of the item by checking hue, also click in the top left of Pandoras box in that color piece and you can change it there also.

    Lock Button: Use this to lock down any item in the world.
    Wipe button clears and item but I like using the Remove button, that is there also I use the Remove button a lot. It;s at the top of the screen

    Blue Arrows: in the middle you can fudge items around, there is also a Nudge button, I find the value 3 works good with the Nudge button, you can check Rnd to round the corners on items and type in a value.

    ANOTHER IMPORTANT BUTTON THE TILE BUTTON:
    use this to tile large sections of something say a floor or a dock. Choose wood floor to test, click in a tile close to you, then an another tile say 15 tiles away. When you click the two spots the flooring is automatically made. no need to go 1 by one and make the tiles, that would be insane right!



    TRAVEL TAB:

    This is how you can get around the world instantly. It is pretty simple, just click where you wan to go, drill down until you find the place you want and hit the GO button, you can also send someone to a place by clicking the SEND BUTTON

    In the middle you pick which Facet you want, and on the right you can click on the map manually to also port there. Here's a little hidden gem: Click the TEXT that says World Map and this will bring out a larger map.

    You Can also click find location and type in say... Minoc, and the map will pan over to Minoc, then you can port over there to Minoc or wherever. Pretty Cool.


    PROPS TAB:
    Which stands for properties, this just mean changing the data of a thing to. For instance if I click on mobile then AncientLich I can change any property on that spawn, for instance if I want to change it's artificial intelligence from magic to melee, I click AI then hit the button and change it to AI_Melee. Now that lich will fight instead of cast magic which was his default fighting patteren, this happens when i click on him.

    ITEMS TAB:
    Much like the Deco Tab. Almost exact actually except it has more items, so you need to go to both to find what you want.

    NPC TAB: HINT, CLICK FIND to search for a monster, many are not listed on the left menu!
    This is where you can spawn or add individual monsters to the world. Click on a Monster or NPC on the left or hit the Find button. Drill down until you find what you want.

    Spawn amount: Type in how many monsters you want
    Range: This is how far the monsters will walk away or roam from the spot you spawn them in.
    Delay:Min-Max this is how long it will take to spawn another monster or npc
    Team: if they move in pacts I believe, haven't played with that one.
    Extra: also haven't played with it but I believe it's an extra spawn on top of the spawn you already set.

    ADD Button: add a single spawn
    Spawn Button: add the spawn 1 or more creatures.

      Continued...

      ADMIN TAB:

      Admin Button: This is for total administration, you can look at players accounts, Player information

      World Building: just as it sounds you can add Moongates, Vendors, ect, but since you already did this with Neruns Distro it might not let you from here.

      Admin Button/Command Button: Nice little set of a lot of the GM Commands mentioned before all in one place!

      Guards Button: you can setup guards the way you want in a Region.

      Freeze/Unfreeze Buttons: OK this is a little bit tricky, and more advanced, but if you want to remove something from the world say a tree or rocks, which I did to make room for my Castle, you need to have a different folder in RunUO, call it whatever you want something like tempMaps.

      Then go to your Ultima Online Client 7.0.15 and copy all the map.mul files and paste them in the RunUO folder you just made. I know you dont need them all but I do it just to have all bases covered and it doen't hurt anything. So just copy all of them.

      Now you have to go RunUO\scripts\Misc\DataPath.cs and edit 1 line of code

      when you see this line
      private static string CustomPath = @"C:\Ultima Online Classic";

      change it to the folder you made tempMaps or whatever it is.
      private static string CustomPath = @"C:\Ultima Online Classic\runUO\tempMaps";

      If you don't do this you will get an error in game, it will tell you you can't use the unfreeze command and you will not be able to delete that tree you want gone.

      OK Now you will be able to hit the unfreeze button ingame on a tree you want to remove or whatever it is. click both sides of the tree and remove it. after your done make sure you freeze it again or that spot could become laggy. Also when you freeze go further then when you unfroze it to make sure you get everything frozen again correctly.

      Last piece. Copy all the map.mul files back over from RunUO the folder you made back over to their original folder in Ultima online 7.0.15.1. Restart everything and that tree or whatever should now be gone from the world. If you have Players in your world you will need to patch to them them, all the new map.mul files. So they see what you see in the world.



      TOOLS TAB:
      Roofing Button: Here you can do some building like build a roof for instance, it's pretty easy and straight forward with the GUI

      Options Button lets you setup things in-game the way you want with the configuration panel, again this is pretty straight forward and to individual taste. This is also where you could run patches I believe but I haven't done that yet.

      DOORS TAB:
      this is where you can quickly switch out any door in the game and the way it swings all it a couple clicks of the buttons.

      LIGHTS TAB:
      this is where you can setup lighting and the radius of lighting for different objects, just pick the object yiu want lit from the list and choose the lighting you want.

      CUSTOM TAB:
      here you can set up your own custom object easily and send them a command or a menu that you setup. The menu in very intuitive just like all of Pandora Box 3 and I would like to give a special thank you to the programmer Ayra for making my life so much easier with this phenomenal tool.


      RunUO Commands: Inside The UO Client 7.0.15.1 while in God mode (GM) Mode on your character. Just type in the commands listed in the link below manually to do the same stuff I showed you in Pandora's box, just requires a lot more typing. Pandora Box 3 is all Button pushing.

      Remember to type the symbol [
      before the command you want from the list below Example [add

      http://uostuff.uo-projects.net/uostuff/include/templates/runuo/docs/commands.html

      I Hope this tutorial helps everyone just starting out in some way, happy Building all.

        So after much trying i decided to try this guide.
        And it went well untill Nerun's Distro, and yes I have the newest version. but nothing will spawn?

          Alright, I got it to work.
          The new Nerun's works a little different then these tutorials say . But I got it.

          My only question that remains is how do I run a shard that simultaneously runs 2d and 3d client? Like this:

          http://runuo.theabyss.eu/?chpass

          Thanks!

            Besides this question I would like to note that ive downloaded every older game client but they all do not seem to work anymore.
            The only way for me to get a shard up and running was downloading the setup from the original website and patching it all the way up.

            Is this true?

              No, you can use any version of the core for the era you want, then you need to look at the patch number that matches the core. You would not want the highest patch if you were using a core from and older era

                FYI most cores do not support the 3D client, you would have to script that or get a version that has already implemented it

                  So can you help a brother out then? Because I have litterly been scouring the internet for a 7.0.23.1 version that worked. But up until now I got no luck.
                  Am i doing something wrong? I could only find this version here:

                  https://www.servuo.com/threads/clien...th-razor.2788/

                  And Ive tried it with Runo 2.3, 2.5 and 2,7 but all got the same ''bumping into invisible stuff''. So then I downloaded the official installer, patched it all the way up, there was no problem.

                  So are there versions that have it implemented it? (are you talking about Runuo?).

                  You advice is greatly appreciated!

                    I personally don't have a core with the 3D working, it has never been popular with players in the past

                      Working...
