I asked in chat about changing font size and was met by alot of aggression, it seems there is no way to change the chat text. Even saving the window size preferences between logins, alpha of the background or location on the screen. Basic UI being overlooked or is this game really that infant?

I'd say basic UI being overlooked. It seems like they didn't pay much attention to the UI at all. Basically just went "Well, it shows stuff and... stuff... DONE!"

Technically, that's all a UI needs to do.<_< This isn't WoW.

Technically speaking, the UI is just a base bunch of images within one file format contained in boundary boxes that you can't technically see (Gamebryo)
other engines have different styles however.

@zerotigress i would love to attempt at getting those interface images out of the screenshots, but they're too small.

If we can find old beta RO2 client - we can extract them and apply to newer client.

Or you can use the font.xml file that is there and change ALL the fonts and ALL the font sizes... if you find out which index number corresponds to which font being displayed without restarting your game 8754847 times, that is... <_<

If you modify a VDK file won't the game just update/overwrite it when it patches?

Can you explain what you mean by custom? More generally, can you explain how exactly to do this? (Assuming it's legal and you are allowed to post the instructions.)

I never said this was WoW, so I'm not sure why you even brought it up. A rather silly response, honestly.

A properly functioning, intuitive, smooth and attractive UI is important for any game, and this one barely has the "properly functioning" part down. Yes, "technically" all a UI needs to do is show you information, but how that information is shown is extremely important to any developer who isn't just being lazy.

Yeah, these are from the kRO2 site. I haven't been able to find hi-res screens of beta kRO2.

This.
In WoW you had a large way of editing your ui through the options or addons.
In this game you have one of the most laughable UI's ever in a mmo.
Clunky, Ugly, and useless.

No cows were killed in the making of the current UI we are using today~ :ok:

Not sure why they decided to have such a leathery UI, those other ones look great.

I lost interest in interfacing looooong ago. but this is just a visual extraction from screenshots. you'd be surprised what i can do with a couple of screenshots and a graphic editing software.

Did some digging around and found some higher resolution screens of the first beta interface.

http://ro-projectrev...creenshots.html

This one shows the character, skills, card album, and bag windows from the wing interface.

http://news.mmosite....preview,1.shtml

This forum thread shows both wings and curly interfaces.
