Up where I usually see things like 'so and so whittled a such and such' there is this brown, scrambled bar instead. It keeps me from seeing if my actions succeed or fail, or if I have an anal spasm...I really can't play the game with it doing this.

I've gone so far as to reinstall the client, to uninstall and reinstall TWC too. So now I'm mapless, modless and it's still scrambled.

I'm getting a little cranky because of it.

Are you sure it's marlett? According to what I'm finding out marlett is what Windows uses, enough so that it hides the font from windows explorer.

So my comp would already have that font. I don't see how it would scramble it only on the client there.

I recall someone mentioning it was a setting on the Marlett file - although what setting I have no idea - so try downloading it to replace the file.

I can't find one anywhere to download. The font places all say marlett is a hidden file in Windows, yadda yadda.

Ok, I'll upload it from my computer...

Put it into windows/fonts

I hope that does it.

Okay, got it. Now the problem is when I try to drag it into the file it says that that font is already there. And that I have to remove the old one to install the new one. And since Windows runs on marlett I'm a little scared of doing that.

Can't delete or move marlett and you need to to replace it.

I've tried everything now. Deleting cookies, uninstalling, reinstalling. Nothing works.

Finally have it working. I'm not sure now whether it was the cookie cleaning/total destruction of TW off my machine, and then reinstalling it; or the reboot that finally did it....

Thanks to those who did try to help.
