Vendor Dialogue problems

Post » Wed Nov 18, 2015 1:37 am

I have made vendors before and never had this problem before. In my current WIP I am trying to make a vendor. When I get to the quest part, on the dialogue tab, I cannot get the "GREETING" or anything else to show up in the Topic box. I can bring up the list, and I can left-click it, but it doesn't show up. Not sure why. It has never done this to me before, and it is preventing me from moving on. I am probably doing something really stupid, and just not catching it. Anyone have any ideas?

I recently upgraded to Windows 10 along with everyone else that did the upgrade. Don't know if that might give trouble with the GECK.

I think your suffering from the windows 8 glitch where boxes that display column information collapse to the left ( yes apparently still in win10 )

Its mostly just condition boxes ... but the left box on the Topic tab and similar screens does this also.

So what you have to do to view the information ... is hover the mouse at the top left header corner till the mouse pointer changes ... hold left click and drag right. You have to do this for ever column ... and then drag back per column when necessary ... eventually you figure out the perfect drag per.

But yes it will collapse back every time you change the page ... arrrgggg .... very annoying.

That fixed it. Thanks. Did not know about this as I went from Windows 7 to 10. Skipped Windows 8. Don't know what the heck is up with Microsoft these days. Every new one is stranger than the last. I don't remember them being that glitchy back with XP and ME.

Again, thanks very much. I thought it might have been something I was doing.
