    The mystery surrounding the new UI isn't very encouraging :(

    I had to go to full screen to find the paperdoll, move it and then was able to see it in window mode. I'm missing Pinco's UI already :( - no zooming in and out for containers and paperdoll.

    The green bar on the health barr is latency meter.

    I deleted my folder and starting from Scratch. Only 38 characters to go....

    I suggest going to options in main menu and set UI scale to 1.00 (If your screen is big enough)

    Yay. Even an proper vendor search window :D Really appreciated!

    On a sidenote: Lots of the labels look very blurry to me comapred to the old UI (e.g. in vendor search the "max price"). Is it just me or is anybody else feeling the same?

    Need to get home now to play a bit with it :)

    Can anyone help me find this zoom? I've never used these tools before and wouldn't mind being able to read the text in my containers.....

    Also, can I change the color scheme?

    OMG the minimap, must it always be on top?

    @Pinco Is there now a follow command in this new client? Classic client could simply press a button and select a player to follow.

    Also I used the toggle scale button to zoom in and out on my character, and its not working.

    I am sure I will discover other things I can't do that probably work if I just troubleshoot it some more. Thank you for all your hard work!

    Wow looking good so far! I'm just having a poke about and getting my new shiney client setup! Great work @Pinco !!

    I can't wait for the new version of your UI to use! I really miss (already) being able to snap out the chat windows so I can have separate windows for journal/general chat/party + guild - I hope this will be making a return with your custom UI.

    Also the feature you added where you can't use another bandage until the one being used has finished (I hope that makes sense!)

    EDIT - This is what I mean with chat windows being able to be popped out:

    Do you have to download the EC and Pincos separately or does this new default interface include Pincos?

    Found it. For everyone else, you have to go into your user settings, select the tab for input, and select zoom in and zoom out for your mouse to make this work.

    Im having some bad issues Im afraid. I first deleted all my character files in User Data as I assumed that would be best. However I now cannot open my inventory, I can't double click anything like containers or house signs, I can't right click my character to get a context menu. I can't click containers in my house to get any menu.

    Any thoughts as to what I've done wrong?

    The default UI is a lot of Pinco's work. :)

    The diablo health and Mana is replaced by UO logo's though ;)

    Check some settings like uncheck Ignore mouse action on self. Maybe you have to turn on or off legacy targeting. There is also a setting to change how to open context menu with left or a right click.

    Is there anyway to have outlines around spells etc like in the old client?

    Blue = self
    Red = current
    Green = cursor

    At the moment they are all the same colours. I've included a pic below (from old client)

    I've cleared the issue up, I deleted everything from User Interface, rather than just the character files. It has reset my character desktops completely but atleast I can now click.

    Agreed! I thought 'Set Border' might do this when you right click an icon but it doesn't actually seem to do anything.

    To make it short. I play plain ec since SA came out, no pinco ui.
    Is there a way to get the old looks back, map window, paperdoll, container views, color theme ? I dont like at all what i see here. I usually have a lot of toolbars out and that light grey background for the buttons doesnt really match well with what is seen in the playwindow most of the time, aka lots of green. Black/yellow was so much better.

    Old ec interface was designed by someone would did know something about ui desgin, it was easy to read, uncluttered and clear. Color theme did fit what is in the playwindow.
    Not to many colors used. Not exactly a masterpiece, but it turned out to be very usable over the years. Why throw that away ?

    Also , is it possible to resize my backpack window, i could not find it ?

    Are you using legacy style backpack or a grid view? If grid view use the "scale mode" (found under "other" in the actions menu) to resize it.

    Scale mode does resize the window and everything inside it, but i actually want a bigger window to see more items inside a container, not the same items just bigger.

    I was the same at first. Now after an hour of playing I get used to it and find a lot of cool features. I will at least wait a week or two until the dust settles, before I decide how to move on.

    To get the old resizable grid containers you need to disable "legacy grid containers" in the settings. I have a copy of the old UI and it seems still to work. I can upload it if you really can't stand the new default.

    Things I find great so far:
    - Timers in the hotbars and buff bar (e.g. when can i hide again?)
    - Timers on my summons (When is my RC going poof?)
    - Runebook gumps :D
    - New vendor search UI (hope i can add something like a search history on top of it!!)

    Things i have a hard time with so far:
    - No more menu bar (need to do it in hotbars now)
    - All of my hotbars change color when i cast (supposed to show i cant use other spells at this moment, but with 10+ hotbars its just annoying)
    - Missing target color-indicator on hotbars
    - This little locks on almost every window and hotbars are cluttering the UI a lot (and whats the difference on hotbars instead of using the old "lock hotbar")?

    Also there are some minor bugs, but that's no problem. Give it some time.

    Btw. the UI documentation is just an empty zip file. Is that intended @Pinco ?

    They won't go together for a while. The default UI now has most features of it now.
