Razor, UO:Renaissance Community Edition (UOR:CE), is a free tool designed to help with simple tasks while playing Ultima Online.

For more information about this version of Razor, the history, release notes and downloads links please visit http://www.uor-razor.com

Installing Razor

First, download Razor. Unlike previous versions of Razor, this version doesn't use the Windows Registry or %AppData%\Razor to store configuration, macros and profiles. In other words, it's portable. To install, follow these simple steps:

  • Download the latest release of Razor at the main site.
  • Extract the zip into any location (ie: C:\UO\Razor)
  • (Optional) If you have an existing version of Razor, copy the Profiles and Macros folders from %AppData%\Razor into the folder you extracted the zip above to. If you have custom counters, also copy counters.xml over.

Note: All macros should work from previous version, with the exception of macros using targeting created in Razor 1.0.14.x. You will need to re-add those target hotkeys to your macros.

  • Right-click on the Razor shortcut or Razor.exe, go to Properties. On the Compatibility tab, select Run this program in compatibility mode for and select Windows XP SP2. Also select Run this program as an administrator
  • Run Razor either via the shortcut or clicking the Razor.exe directly.
  • Razor should prompt to Run As Administrator. You must allow this for Razor to function correctly.

Upgrading Razor

Since Razor is portable, upgrading it is a copy/paste exercise.

  • Download the latest release of Razor at the main site.
  • Extract the zip into your existing Razor location (ie: C:\UO\Razor), overwritting all files, with the exception of two:
    • counters.xml - This is the default counters file used to display items in your titlebar. If you've added any new counters, they would be lost if overwritten.
    • Razor.exe.Config - This is the config file that stores your UO path, server list, etc. Copying this over will overwrite those settings.
  • Open Razor back up and log back in.

Welcome Screen

The first time you run Razor, it will open with a Welcome Screen and give you an option to import your exising


Browse to your client.exe that you want to run along with Razor. Set the UO Data Directory (most likely the same path as your client.exe). Either use the pre-configured servers or enter your own server in the list here.

You can also edit Razor.exe.Config and add your own servers or just enter the server name and port in this format: server.name.com,port

Click OK to open Razor and Ultima Online.

The Welcome Screen will control some of these settings, but some settings can only be changed by editing .\Razor.exe.config.
