    If i camp too char select it crashes every time now.

    This was the case before when loading into the char select from server select, but only if i hit "quick connect" for some time.

    Now its when i camp too, char select.

    I had this problem and had to delete that character's 'UI_charname_server' file in my EQ directory and recreate my UI from scratch. I've heard of people doing full reinstalls to solve the problem too

    Same problem here, and I use several accounts over 2 computers and it happens on every combination.

    Mine crashes ( simple black screen with no way out ) and puts me into windowed mode (which I have to close with the X top corner ), so when I next log in I am in windowed mode and have to swap to full screen in options, which inevitably messes up my UI settings. It is ridiculous that this seems to get fixed and broken again with almost every patch.

    I am having this problem as well, but not when I am camping from a character using the default UI. There were a couple of posts in the thread for bugs after the last patch about it. I don't know what custom UI you may or may not be using, but I use SparxxUI, and it was updated for the patch. Someone else tested it and found that it was just the player window that seemed to be causing the problem. I am going to try deleting that from my SparxxUI folder and see if that works until the UI gets updated again.

    Same exact issue, when using the newest SparxxUI, If I /camp with that skin on it's a crash.

    I run Sparxx also and crash useing camp also. Also cannot use launcher have to bypass that. If someone does find a fix please post.

    Also you can toggle between windowed and full screen with alt-enter buttons. No need to go to game options.

    This happens because of the new chat windows. The crash seems to happen because of a hidden chat window that is not displayed and not closed. Here is how I fixed the issue.

    Log in a character that has default ui and that you don't care about the format. Like a new toon.

    Then copy the character that you normally play using the options window and copy layout.

    Then delete anything that is in the folder that has your characters name. Log in the character and it will reset everything.

    Now log in the character you normally play and copy the layout from the character you temporarily stored it on.

    You'll have to rearrange some tabs and windows, but it should fix the crashing and save hotkeys.

    Sparxx UI has been fixed. :)

    Just got done updating Sparxx UI on my trio of towers. Tested and checked with classic gems and spell buttons and 10/18 map window from older Sparxx. No more crashing.
