    I play in the 2-D client. Last Saturday night while fighting some monsters in the Abyss, the mosters after they are killed they remained in standing positions in funny poses. If I drag the monster I get a blank bar, but if I use crt-shift I see a different bar which is their corps. After a while, that standiing dead monster goes away.

    this becomes frustrating because if I am in a champ spawn doing massive killing I see bodies everywhere standing eventhough they are dead and its hard to tell which one is still alive.

    Has anyone ran across this problem yet? if so is there a way to fix it?

    thanks,

    Which settings Manticore? Your desktop layout and icons should, in theory, survive a reinstall, since they are now stored in your 'My Documents' and not in the UO client folder.... so I think you should, with a bit of luck, not need to do much after a reinstall.

    But if there's any other way than reinstall, please try that first - if nothing else, it's a long wait downloading and patching!

    Actually, it took less that 5 minutes to downlad. All my macros remained. It was painless and worth the time. Took me less that 15 min to download and start playing again.

    Manticore, do NOT bother reinstalling. This is not a probelm with your installation. It happened to alot of people on different shards. There is something else causing this. Mine went away after I rebooted my PC.

    I'd be willing to bet the chap that reinstalled also did a reboot at some point.
