I’m pleased announce the next release of the Ultima 2 Upgrade, version 2.1. You may find it in the download section. This release contains several new features, which I’ve blogged about over the past two weeks:
And two bugfixes concerning stat boosts:
I’ve also decided on how to to handle upgrades from floppy releases: the patch will apply only to the Program Master. The patch will also add any missing data files from the Player Master or Galactic disks. I’ve therefore included the ability to apply the upgrade to the 1989 floppy release of the Ultima Trilogy 1-2-3. I unfortunately don’t have any of the earlier Sierra On-Line releases, so those will have to wait for now.
With that, I need to slow down the pace of updates for the next month while I prepare for some other things going on right now. I still have a lot more work planned for Ultima 2, and I hope to finish those out this year.
