    Hello all,

    Anyone else noticing or have the same issues??

    1. When I take damage in combat now, the red numbers that tell me how much I've taken only show up about half the time. It has been that way for damage I GIVE for quite a while, which yes is frustrating.. But now it's happening to me also. Makes it hard to keep an eye on major damage influx's that I take without staring at my stat bar the entire time. Annoying..

    And while I'm on the subject.. Is there any way to change the color of the numbers for the damage I give vs. take? I looked through the options and didn't see anything there.

    2. One of my characters, and only one, can't release or lock anything down in my own home! Was locking down my holiday tickets when I noticed it, so tested it on a load of other things. He can't lock or unlock anything. Reloaded client, etc etc etc, still seems that only this character is bugged in this way.

    Before I went off and submitted a redundant bug report, I thought I would ask around.

    Thanks everyone.

    I had some problems with your number 2.

    I never had problems to lock down stuff. That always worked instantly. I had to spam "i wish to release this" like 5 times until it finally worked. I got the cursor each time but after clicking on the items to be released nothing happened.

    Only 2? you are doing well.

    I too have noticed the damage numbers not showing. Not that its usually of much concern but I made a new bow and went to Corgul and I still have no idea of the effectiveness of the bow, damn nuisance.

    edit. OOPS I see its your damage you dont see, with me its the damage I'm doing.

    Yeah same for me, and for a while now
    except half the time they are in the top left uppermost corner of the screen where you can barely notice them. Only for damage I'm doing, can't get in yet to see if damage to me is not showing now.

    It's really quite annoying.. Literally have to keep my eyes glued on the stat bar all the time, and makes it a challenge to watch what is going on around me.

    I've also noticed that the damage I do sometime shows up in odd places on my screen. But that isn't half as frustrating as this has been so far.

    there was a time when damage you gave was red and damage you where dolling out was yellow.

    was nice and easy to keep track of stuff.

    i miss that.

    There is different damage colours...just not on your client. Don't want to start a client war, just pointing it out.

    For #2 - try this with that character. Get a pet (packie or something) and try to lock it down in the house. If you get some message relating to honor, then ...
    1. locate a quick kill (hart, hind, cow)
    2. honor it
    3. kill it

    Now take that character into the house and see if they can lock/secure stuff. SOURCE: UO Players Corner FAQ, subpost "Various Stuff"

    Well well.. Thank you 24 flat! aka "a case of beer".. :D Such an odd thing, and yes, I sure felt a little strange trying that out. But it sure did fix the issue.

    Thank you many times over!

    Glad it helped! <bows> Look thru Players Corner ... there's lots of stuff in the FAQ you may not know - and some neat tips (like this!). Basara has improved on things quite a bit.
