3D graphics screwed up by 4.0.3a?

Archived from groups: rec.games.computer.ultima.online (More info?)

Anyone had this problem with the 3D client? I'm running an LBR account and
since the latest patch installation the art is behaving very strangely in
the game window and the paperdoll. There have been I understand some art
updates in the patch, but my client wont display clothing properly -
characters look like they are wearing rags, the fronts of helmets are
missing, hairstyles have changed, its very odd. Ive reinstalled the client
and repatched with no luck. Since I am not running AoS, the only explanation
I can think of is that the patch has somehow activated some textures that I
do not possess since I only have an LBR CD. A wild guess... Anyone any ideas
please?

Shaun.

    Everything on mine looks normal. It did reset everything on my UOA
    including erasing my DAMN macros. Damnit.

    Something I forgot to add - the patch apparently forces the EA intro to be
    played every time is booted up whether we like it or not. Well, guess what -
    that doesn't happen with me. LBR title screen, then the login....

    .....?

    Ouch... :-(

    Just logged on - patch 4.03.a2 has just downloaded, and everything is back
    to normal. The EA logo is now appearing after the LBR loading screen, but a
    mouse click gets rid of it. Excellent.

    I'm not seeing the EA logo screen at all. Dunno what I did different,
    except I have AoS.

    Oh, the "change" they made for the 6th character was to expand the
    character pick list gump to allow room for one more character to
    display. Why that had to be done now I have no idea - the login
    screen was ugly before, it's ugly and off-centered now.

    If I get back first, let me know that I'm
    looking for myself and don't let me leave.

    IMO: A 6th character slot has been needed ever since they started adding
    3rd and 4th skills required to function at an acceptable level and power
    scrolls. It's probably to late for most of the customer base now.

    It's also a good idea now that they have character transfer available. I
    wouldn't pay $19.95 to delete an established character on a shard I play
    to move a semi developed one from another shard to take their place. A
    sixth slot means all I don't have to sacrifice one.

    I honestly don't like the skill structure of the game now. Usually OSI
    looks at what EQ is doing to be sucessful and just copies it. With
    trades they completely blew half of the equation. I and others have been
    complaining that trades skills shouldn't infringe on combat related
    skills. Now I notice I seem to be the last one left here that holds that
    view. No suprise, everyone else quit.

    My 6th Character will be named "Grimgotts Vault No 615", if that's any
    clue.
