Having an issue with conversations with quest Npc's. here are 2 screenshots of the chat boxes I'm getting.  I've not yet figured out why..

The first is "no" back ground..

The second "back ground is all black. 

First one shows just the text, while this second one shows no text just black box without me editing any files.  Just started yesterday the 9th.

They both happen just happen differently on different npc's

In the case of Firiona, she is most likely giving you choices on the green buttons for heritage or special quests.  If you're using an old or poorly-maintained custom UI, those button images may not be present in the graphics files, so you'll have a transparent background on those.  (In this case, the file is commonelements.dds.)  I checked both the red and blue defaults on Beta and they both have the correct graphics.

Thanks, that dds never entered my mind.  I compared lots and lots of xml files for the includes etc.. but did think of the dds's..

When servers come back up I shall see if this works..

Yep, that did the trick.. Thanks Grumpy..

Ok, my mistake, not all is well.  The ones with the black boxes are still black boxes.
