    Default Buff Timers not showing up

    Like the subject says, my buff timers will not show up. If i hit the "alt" key & run the mouse over the buff i can see the time, but that's not how it's supposed to work. Also, the only way i can see item names is by right clicking them. I can't drag the mouse over the item to get a name at all. "Allow Context Menus" is on, i've tried clicking it off & on again and that does not work. I talked to customer support and they told me to delete several files, which i did & it still did not solve the problem. I deleted eqgame.exe, eqmain.dll, eqclient.ini, the dx8 graphics file, dx9 file, user data file, UI files and re-patched and that still did not work. I'm running Win XP and i have download service pack 2...dunno if that has anything to do with it. Also, since deleting & re-patching, i reset all my options when i logged in. Dynamic Lighting and Spell Effects are set to OFF, but alas, they still show up. I'm at the end of my rope with this & it's quite aggrevating, especially when customer support isn't really a help. Any info on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I have been having the same trouble with Buff Timers. A lot of times if you just click in the buff window from that point forward when you hit ALT the timers will all appear as expected.

    The issue seems to be related only to the EQ UI. I use a custom UI as well but the Buff window is still the EQ Default UI Window as the modifications I made were fubarred when the Graphics patch came out... let me tell you it really sucked when EQ crashed everytime I hit ALT!
