The UO Curse Tool is the first 3rd party utility to be approved by Origin as a UO Pro utility. This means that it is now safe to use this tool together with UO. No more risks of being banned, although I seriously doubt if anyone got banned over using the Curse Tool, well, unless someone said "Thou wenching horn-mad gull-catcher!" to a GM ofcourse...
Trying to role-play in Ultima Online can be fun.
Especially when you try to use the old elizabethian style of
talking. You know, by using thee, thou, thine and the occasional
mayhap or prithee. Now talking that way can be quite difficult,
even more when english is not your native language. But when it
comes to cursing you really run out of words you can use very
soon. For that reason I have created a little tool called
UOcurse. At the press of a button it will hurl a curse in old
elizabethian style to the window Ultima Online is running in.
This way the text will be displayed just as if you had typed it
in yourself. The tool creates these curses at random. There are
more than 350.000 different curses possible. In case you are
wondering what these curses look like, here are some examples:
- Thou beslubbering paper-faced egg-shell!
- You artless hedge-born jack-a-nape!
- Yer clouted swag-bellied maggot-pie!
- Thou wenching horn-mad gull-catcher!
There are a lot of sentences that keep appearing
when playing Ultima Online. The ones that are used the most are
probably 'hi buy' and 'hi sell'. To make these mini conversations
a little more pleasant I have added 24 slots to the UOcurse tool.
In each slot I can enter a sentence that can be hurled to the UO
window at the press of a button. See the picture below for some
examples of these frequently used sentences. Because I have more
than 1 character I play with I have created 20 sets of 24
sentences each so each character can use the text-sets that suits
him or her best.
You can enter keywords for each sentence. These keywords will be displayed on the smaller window instead of displaying the whole sentence.
You can specify whether the tool should press the [ENTER] key after transferring the text to UO. If no [ENTER] is generated then the text will be visible in the lower left corner of the UO screen as if you typed it in yourself. You can then add or change words and then press [ENTER] yourself.
Previously you could choose Thou, You or Yer as Curse prefix. Now you can use any prefix you like. Just type it in the prefix field.
The total number of
different text sets has been increased to 30.
Added support for the
new UO:Third Dawn gesture command.
You can use up to 6 variables in your sentences. This can be handy when you use different pets. See the picture below to see some examples. And I am sure there are lots of other handy things you can do with these variables.
The Always on Top feature can be used to make the Curse Tool float over all
other windows. This can come in handy if you want to place the Curse
Tool window in the black border that surrounds the UO screen in Big
Window mode. Note: The Curse Tool cannot be used when UO is in full
