    not sure what they're talking about there....I did a trade and it updated just fine....

    I did close the window and reopen....perhaps that is what is meant by not live updating? If not could this be explained a little more thoroughly please

    Ok, this is just an example but it also applies to other things that changers the numbers in the window as well as to other lifeskills:

    Open the character info window, look at what gathering % you're at. Go gather for an hour without closing the window. The % will not change until you close and reopen the window.

    It may seem like something silly but it used to update in realtime as you gathered. So we got a "new fancy window" with fewer features. That's just weird, update something to make it better, not worse

    na, people are just overreacting cause something changed, is new.
    Its the same with the new UI, first everyone wanted it, and now everyone use the custom HP bars....

    People just get lazy and dont want changes...


    I love the new ui and Character P screen.

    an option to toogle it, will only bring me issues/buggs, (like the one with the Safe/Load options from server).

    Do what u want, but dont remove the character picture! Its the best thing about the new "P screen", and brings much more personality to your character. Its like a passport now.

    When u do roleplay ingame and stuff, its easyer to do now.


    Or just make it like this:
    Then we have our Passport, with every information on 1 page.

  5. It is less functional and less convenient than he old profile ui.

    Having the same character image that’s available on character select is not much of an upgrade.

    Having to click through pages that don’t update unless you close to refresh and click through them again is a downgrade.

    Having to save multiple screenshots for guilds with gear and lifeskills checks when we used to be able to get it all in one shot is a downgrade.

    This isn’t a matter of not liking change. It’s not liking added inconvenience.

    Escape menu ui is new and people fight against it BUT you can customize the front page to show what you need and use most.

    There is nothing customizable about this new profile ui, and it buries information that was readily available in one click/one hot key under several.

    It’s a downgrade and people are voicing legit concerns. If you like trading convenience for flash, more power to you. We’re just asking for the option to use what we already had, just like the new ui up bar has the option to reactivate the old one.

    seems like a trivial matter really, but I can understand the desire to see what % you get on each action for those trying to make guides and sheets with time comparison breakdowns....

    I want the old one back where I can see my lifeskills as yellow bars, not the grey ones we have now that don't update!

    You can't "expand" the window size it will break low-resolutions fit. Almost everything they change are limited in size on screen. Until they convert every single UI component to svg/vector that will resize to fit resolutions.

    Remove the profile pic from the new UI and purge all RPers into a separate server.

    The new window is trash. This dev is intent on "fixing" things that are functional (older ui's/graphics) vs broken mechanics like "class balance"
    men oh men.

    I think it can be done, the old one had a lot of wasted space, this new one is the same and the placement of things need re-arranging.

    This is an attempt to provide more consistency, missing some icons but the layout could work. Everything easy to read and placed in a tidy order.

    Please, don't do this. Instead ask them to release Drieghan and work hard to make it happen in the next few weeks.
    Drieghan is much more important than how an information window looks.

    I enjoy the new one - to be honest @CM Servantes I would rather they spend the development time and effort on making individual UI elements scale independently of each other, being able to move fixed UI elements like the buff bar, and adding more UI quick slots.

    it's indeed a 100% step backwards if you need to click through tabs now. it's not as if there wouldn't be enough space on the screen to display a couple of numbers.

    WutFace, i like the new one, the issue was that i couldnt see profession progress, now i can. dont see an issue. good profile page. stop asking them to remove it again, they removed it and my title search function was gone for months and i quit the game. you're not even constructive.

    better go complain about the graphic pop-in , sharpness filter that ruins antialiasing, or the p2w artisanmemory/costume melting cronstones.
