Dude, seriously - THANK YOU for making this work again. I have come back after a couple of years & not one of the (3) UO mapping tools (UOAM, Ultima Mapper, UO Cartographer) worked no matter what I did or how many guides to make them work fixed them. I am now able to use UOAM like I did 10 yrs ago. I was also able to keep all my personal maps (with a bit of cleaning up).

Once again, thank you!

not loading at all? try run as admin (right click shortcut - run as administrator). it is not certain however that is the cause.

Thanks for your help. I am running as administrator but when it gets to the screen saying it's getting information from server but it stays there and never does nothing. It acts to me like its getting stopped by a firewall or in the antivirus but I have not been able to located the problem.I have turned firewall off and shutdown antivirus program and still won't work. I am on Windows Vista if that help. Thanks again for the help, I really miss my map

If you bypass the patcher, there should be no internet connection required for uoam. is it the labels dialogue you trying to download things?
 

Tectop

Journeyman
I don't think so, it's just one of the start up screens it runs through in a normal start up when starting.But now it just stops on that page and goes no further. I will try the -q in the shortcut again. It is showing a -q in the shortcut file that locates with the rest of the files when extracted.

Wanted to give a update to all that has been helping me with this.I finally Got it working again, ended up deleting it from my PC and before downloading again I made sure it had permission to go past firewall in vista. After that it's been working fine, just hate playing without a good map.
Thanks again to everyone for all their help.

Greetings,

I have downloaded and installed the latest version [post 208] and am very grateful.

All the town, moongate, island names etc. labels are not showing up. Right clicking the map selecting in the sub menu / Places / Show Labels and Show Shop names are checked. From the UOAM Control Panel / Map I have the following checked - Show Labels, Show Icons, Show Linked Players, Show Game Window an Show Town Labels By Name.

Any tips?

Be blessed in all your adventures,
Frederick

I have found the missing files that added the labels to my fresh install of UOAM in the UO Cartography post. For me I needed to download - UOCMapAdditions.zip found in step 5 - UOCartographer

After downloading I unzipped and copied the files (.map) to my UOAM folder.


Hope that helps anyone that is doing a clean install of UOAM.


Be blessed in all your adventures,
Frederick

if you right click properties compatibility then click run this program as administrator you won't have to keep right clicking I have it all setup for UO or UO related.

WOW!!! Thanks a million Kojak!
Your work on Automap still rocks! It works perfectly, tracks me like a bloodhound and everything is there! Last time I returned some 3 yrs ago, I was a bit put off cuz I couldnt use UOAM.. now, I can´t clap enough! BRAVO! :)

*ALERT*

Would everyone who DOES IDOCS and USES UOAM kindly provide me their IP Address, or contact me through email or ICQ or even Skype so that I can get your IP address from those myself?

THANK YOU $$

That helpful "see where guildies are" feature is ... fun.

note: this used to be a problem, no clue if you can still track others using UOAM. Haven't used it in eons. Also, in case it's not obvious, I don't really want your IP addresses or emails... it's a joke but tracking others via UOAM was real, is it still?
well technically, only the person running the automap server itself could see your IP

the other people connected to the server couldn't - but that part about seeing people run around in real time still works just fine

I'm absolutely computer illiterate, so bear with me. I extracted all the files to my desktop and ran Automap and it worked (YAY!). So then I created a folder and put them all in there, but that caused Automap to get really mad and not work. So everything is back on the desktop and Map is working, but I know that they should live somewhere else. Where should they actually be?

Since Vista, some programs has required admin/appropriate privileges to talk with each other, one of those affected are making map applications talk to UOAssist.

To test if it works: right click - launch as administrator

If it works:

On your "uoam.exe - shortcut", (right click it - properties), and in "compatibility" tab, tick "run this program as administrator".

Another solution windows wide is turning off UAC (user access control) entirely, but not recommended unless you know what you doing.

Let me know if it works :)

I usually make a folder right off the c: drive called automap and put the files in there (c:\automap)

check if they are ticked at: right click - map - additional settings - filter tab,

also make sure you use the shortcut (modified to your path), as the updater wont work anyways.
