Step 1. Download and Install an Ultima Online Client
Renaissance supports any classic client version of ultima beyond version 5.0. Should you not have a client installed head on over to the downloads section. Make sure that you download and install our minor client patch regardless of which version of Ultima you have.
Step 2. Download and install the latest version of razor
Make sure your computer has minimally .Net framework 2.0 here. When in doubt, you can assume you probably have this unless you computer is old, and you avoid windows updates. You can download razor here.
Step 3. Open Razor and configure it to connect to Renaissance
Before opening razor for the first time, we want to make sure we run it as an administrator. Right click on your razor icon and choose "run as administrator". You can also change the properties of your razor shortcut on the compatability tab. This will ensure razor operates optimally. Once razor is open you will want to check these three settings.
UO Data Directory: Leave this on autodetect unless you utilize multiple ultima online installs.
Step 3. Creating your account and selecting the server
Once connected enter in an account name and password of your choosing. Your account will be automatically created if the username you select is not already in use. Make sure to choose a complex password and write down your account information somewhere. Passwords are case sensetive.
You are allowed to create two accounts on Renaissance. If you have trouble making additional accounts it could be because your internet address is already linked to two accounts.
