The save you provided works for me too.

Make sure you start from a clean state:
  • Unzip DaggerfallGameFiles.zip in a clean directory,
  • Unzip Daggerfall Unity in another,
  • Start the Daggerfall Unity launcher,
  • Click on "<Restart" in the upper left corner of the launcher and visit the path to where you unzipped DaggerfallGamesFiles.zip

Yes please. :) Best to use the recommended DaggerfallGameFiles method. This is a known-good set of game files and puts us all on the same page for support. Please also delete "settings.ini" and "keybinds.txt" to reset game back to defaults.

If problems still persist when opening UIs, the next step is to zip up your player log and attach to a post here so we can see if there are any errors logged that might help. Info below on finding saves, settings, and logs if needed.

You're welcome for help and I'm happy you were able to resolve. :)

I'll close this topic now as it's a necro of old post, and the solution wasn't related to an issue in DFU or the original poster's problem.

Good luck and all the best!
