This is the Exodus Project's upgrade to the second installment of the Ultima Series.

Also included in this upgrade are Micro Dragon's Speed Fix, to avert the divide-by-zero error; and Moonstone Dragon's Galactic Map Patch, which adds maps for the inner planets. See the included README file for more information.

This is the Exodus Project's upgrade to the third installment of the Ultima Series. This upgrade patch enhances the gameplay of the original U3 by added MIDI music and three additional video modes (VGA, EGA, and CGA Composite) -- which includes features that were only available in the Apple II and Commodore 64 releases. In addition to some addition hotkeys, this patch also adds a frame limiter to make sure that this 1983 game runs at a playable speed on modern hardware.

This is an upgrade patch for Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar that adds new features to the PC version. The original musical score, once only available on the Apple and Commodore platforms, is now integrated back into the game. The graphics were also given a face lift and expanded to 256 colors (VGA). Some additional hotkeys (e.g. the ability to exit to DOS) and a frame limiter have also been added, and few of the game's 15-year-old bugs have been repaired. For more information read the included README file.

This was once two separate packages, the Ultima IV Music Upgrade (Aradindae) and the Ultima IV Graphics pack (Wiltshire). They later combined forces to produce this package.
