aha!

Looks like a D3D problem. I'm not sure whether Ultima online runs with OpenGL or D3D, but since q3 arena works that means your gfx card isn't screwed. That would mean that the D3D (Direct 3D) is screwed up on your comp.

To test whether this is true -
1) Click Start menu
2) Click "Run..."
3) type in "dxdiag" without quotes
4) wait till fully loaded and the progress bar at the bottom is finished
5) Go to Display tab, click the buttons that test DirectDraw and Direct 3D.

While you're there make sure that DD and D3D acceleration is turned on.
If DD acceleration works but D3D crashes ur comp, that means its the D3D drivers that is screwed.

I recommend you either get new the latest DX version, (DX 9) or get the latest drivers for your gfx card.
Best to do both

good luck!
