    Hi,
    I just downloaded the 14 day trial. I tried to create a character but I can not read the char descriptions and other letters.

    all I can see is strange boxes, where there should be letters.

    Does anyone know what to do?

    kind regards

    Wheel of fortune. You have to guess the words. I guess the top word is Elf.

    You already try the simple things like exiting the client and restarting?

    Are all your drivers updated? Looks like a problem on your end, maybe data speed or graphics card.

    I am moving this to the UO-Tech forum. The guys that hang out there are probably best equipped to help out.

    it is really strange.

    because some letters are shown correctly and some are not.

    i updated my drivers. but as expected it did not help ;/

    i solved the problem by chosing different languages in the game and then applying them.

    suddenly when switching back to english it worked.

    they really must fix that. i bet a lot of trial players quit because of that bug.
