Me and my husbands hp and mp bars are in the middle of our screens and has always been like that since we have played. Is this normal? Can it be moved? How?

Thanks in advance!

You should be able to just put your mouse on the middle of it and drag and drop it wherever you want it. You do have to log off correctly though in order for the game to save its position. If not, idk, haven't had any trouble with that.

Open main menu > Configuration > Widget (reset widget) (and you can move it as you please as the previous poster said as well).

Not only can you move it, you can also resize it as well. Hover your mouse on the left side of the widget and you should see the familiar horizontal-resize cursor.

The thing I really want to know about this is locking the widgets..

I have everything where I want it...but you can bet in the middle of a fight I will grab the action bar/HpMP/PtyHPMP/Box at the top with the ! in it and move it half way across my screen or something...

Very frustrating.

Also, is there a way whilst in combat to not have the camera always default back round to the rear of your character ?? I want to watch my character actual hit the mob. Be appreaciated if anyone knew the answers.

Thanking you.

There is no way to lock the widget but its funny that you actually move it around by accident, since this isn't an action game really so I have no idea how that is even possible Smiley: tongueSmiley: lol But as for camera, when you target a mob and attack it, the camera auto locks onto mob, to unlock it (make it free move) click "c" or "*" and you then should be able to rotate the camera like usual....if you want to lock it on target again, press "c" or "*". Hope this helps.

I move the widgets around by accident also. It's not that uncommon. It usually happens when i try and select a new mob. The mob selection needs some work. If the mob is a little to the left, then Tab is useless, as it will cycle through all visible mobs. And if i go too fast, i'll accidentally skip the one i want. There should be a 'select next battle target' key, that would select one of the mobs that is attacking you.

Shift-Tab is target in reverse order (from right to left)
but be careful, if in fullscreen Alt-Tab will crash you
