    I’ve been playing this game for a long time. And UO has dome some amazing things, However can we please fix the Party bars for 2d client?
    Just a new party bar system. Maybe locked party bars at the bottom of the screen or something..
    Please Look into it.

    I hate that I don't see my carrying weight and lift ability without opening the status bar.

    When a partied friend or a pet dies, hate that the bar poofs. Need a way to see my summons number in 2D also please (is that my elly/colossus or my party friends' summon?) without going to the non-bar view.

    EC is messed up too, it seems unless I'm the first to be partied, my bars are blank and sometimes I have only a couple and it will not let me pull ANY bar. Been that way forever, 3 different comps too so not my system.

    We all know they're broken, but please can you be more specific with what actually needs fixing, remember the devs don't have friends to party with so don't know what the issues are.

    I haven't either unless the people in question are not anywhere near... then it's blank but as soon as the person is "onscreen" or close it shows up.

    Same here. In default and in pinco UI.

    As for the classic client yes they are mega broken.

    Always hated CC because it really stinks when someone goes off screen and you lose their bar totally.

    Problems with the Classic Client bars off the top of my head:

    1. Sometimes the health bars stop updating correctly, this happens with both regular bars and party bars but I'm not sure what the cause is - maybe too many bars at the same time? (note: I've never had this to my own character's bar, only bars for other players and NPCs)
    2. When someone joins a party, all the open bars jump to a new position.
    3. When someone disconnects and then reconnects, all the open bars jump to a new position.
    4. Party bars have no background - this can at times make the bars a little hard to see if they are over the game window and not the blackened area (on principle, they should have backgrounds)
    5. Sometimes a bar will only become dark gray when a monster dies rather than disappear like it should.
    6. This is a minor gripe, but it annoys me that bars locked together will all close when one is right clicked. This is annoying because if you want to close just one you have to alt+click to separate it first.

    My health bars have been getting screwed up in Blackthorn's dungeon, whether I'm in party or not.

    What keeps happening is after fighting spawn for about an hour and being on the second or third round of the Tower's life... bars will get stuck in the upper left hand corner and be enlarged. That is for friends or mobs.

    This is using EC. I will have to screen shot it next time it happens. Usually clears after closing and re-opening client, but that shouldn't have to be the case.

    My EC health bars quite regularly fail to update and I've seen the stuck in the corner behavior as well. I also sometimes get them stuck on top of each other where a bar for something out of sight is underneath something closer. No Pincos either. Annoying but a client restart seems to fix it as well.

    I concur - Blackthorn's isn't the only place I've seen this behavior. If I am fighting something with ALOT of spawn, it will screw up how my health bars update after a while.

    This used to happen a bit more frequently on champ spawns, but after they scaled down the amount of spawn that can be alive at any one time, it seemed to help the issue on those atleast.

    I would like this fixed before anything else in this game...

    If they can put a window that takes up my entire UO screen in VVV then im sure they can fix party bars.
