On startup, UOCartographer may say: "Cannot locate all maps". This is not a problem, press "OK" and let UOC convert the client map files. Read on if this goes wrong!

Common issue on Angel Island!!! When UOC is converting the client map files, it may give the following error: "UOC cannot find the client map files. Please check this file exists: ...". This is not a big deal. We can simply skip this stap by downloading the pre-rendered maps from the UOC website. Go to https://www.uocartographer.com/ and donwload: ".Mul Files Fix". A readme is included to explain what to do with the downloaded .bmp files. Essentially, you simply have to drop these .bmp files in your UOC data directory (typically: "Documents\UOCartographer"). Restart UOC. The problem should now be resolved!

Other problems:

  • UOC shows a black screen: Double and Triple check your client paths. Make sure you are setting the right one for your client and that it actually exists in windows explorer.
  • UOC doesn't track my player: Try running both your client (= the Angel Island launcher) and UOC as admin.

Map Markers Files

The map marker files can be found in the UOC data directory (typically: "Documents\UOCartographer") and have the ".map" extension. These files can be edited in text to add/edit/remove markers.
