    connectivity problems to Ultima Online.

    Wasnt really sure where to post this.. but decided here probley best.

    ok so, Ultima Online is a online game for those of you have never played.. and for some reason this morning it decided to stop lettings me play, heres the issue whenever i start you it trys to connect to the patch server (which is what it should do) server being: 159.153.197.91 (compassion.owo.com) ok it fails.. UO login screen loads... cant log in.

    i tried to ping 159.153.197.91 and it just timed out.

    so i ran a tracert and it showed the following:

    maximum hops exceeded.

    so wtf is going on? i was playing it fine, went to get some dinner, came back and its screwed... some internet genious look over and make some sense please.

    thanx James

    (p.s i've emailed EA.. but as usual i'm not expecting a reply within the next week)

    hehe hiyas...

    since i can ping/trace route the servers, do you think its possible that NTL are blocking the IPs OR blocking access to ports 8888? i've emailed them but its like trying to get blood out of a stone. anyone here work for them/know anyone who does?

    i'd do a reformat but gotta finish this computing coursework for college next week first

    my friend who lives down the road, also on NTL is having exact same problem.. so theres defo a dodgy server along the way somewhere.

    and yes EA does still support UO, i should think so since it makes 30+ million a year.

    Connecting to patch server 159.153.197.91:8888
    Connected to patch server
    Diverting to 159.153.196.60:8888
    Connecting to patch server 159.153.196.60:8888
    Could not connect to patch server 159.153.196.60:8888
    Could not connect to a patch server
    Make sure you have an active connection to the Internet via an ISP or a direct connection.
    Your client may not be the most recent version.
    You may be able to play the game with your current client.
    Check http:\www.uo.com for help on resolving patching issues.
    Click OK to play the game or Cancel to abort.

    I can't help, sorry... but it's nice to see another UO player or two. I pvped on Europa, Drachs and a couple of the free pvp shards a few years ago. Sold my accounts in 2001 (or 2002...), though

    can you connect to one of the other UO servers - I think there is a Jolt one IIRC.

    Anyone having trouble connecting to any EA games?

    are you in the nottingham/close by area?

    are you on NTL?

    SHOULDA KNOWN IT WAS NTL

    Seems NTL dont want anyone from nottingham playing EA games.... bastards!

    i say we should gank their asses for this

    edit

    Another Thread.. this time its actually UO they cant play

    STUPPPIIIIDDDD NTL, god i want blueyonder, c'mon babys come up my street

    awh freaking goldly reponse by a NTL techy

    "I'm very sorry all for the issues you are experiencing. It's not going to be resolved by a 'quick fix'
    This should be fixed early hours of Tuesday morning during maintenance period. Please post on here some more if you are still experiencing issues after 6am Tuesday morning, and sorry again for the obvious inconvenience. Inevitably with a network the size of ntl's there are issues, some easily fixed, some not so easily.
    Again apologies to all affected those experiencing browsing issues only to sites mentioned here may be able to resolve them by specifying caches outside of Nottingham PoP, those trying to run other services may be able to resolve them by specifying proxies for those services outside of Nottingham PoP"

    TUESDAY? ya mean i'm have to put up with this for over a week? WTF are NTL smoking... and btw it doesnt just effect Gaming, apprantly FTP servers arent functioning either.
