I started playing this game again by installing on my steam account. All was fine for a few days and then the troubles began. A new character was missing the quest bar. The equipment paperdoll turning black except for the equipped items, same for possession beast. And lastly, today I couldn't see anything in the chat box except for linkable items. All this because corrupt install.

 

What I did:

 

Uninstalled the Steam version, and installed the standalone client.

Turned off the antivirus.

Installed latest windows updates.

Gave it permissions in firewall.

Ran as administrator.

Downloaded the installer through IE (did a bit of forum search)

Deleted the ACTORS. VDK file that was stopping the full check, and ran repair, several times.

All of the above in any possible combination and more.

 

Nothing helped and I'm about to give up because I really don't know what else to do. I played this game before without absolutely no trouble, that's why I returned. At the moment I'm installing the steam version again, but this time not gonna bypass steam. If Steam's not working, I'm pretty much done.

Don't run full check. It will make your game corrupt. Known bug since February 2008.

If you are running off a steam account, then install it through steam. Missing quest bar is probably an internal bug not related to data corruption. There are... many bugs that should never see production release in this game.

Will do that, thanks for the advice.
