HoverInfo Tooltips Charlevels EnemyHud


How can I see the Epic Loot info when I hover over an item in my iventory? In the config file, set showCustomTooltips = false

When I use the config manager to change the config values, nothing happens. Why not? The config values are not loaded in real time. You must quit the game and restart to see the changes.

Can I hide the Yellow XP Bar at the bottom of the screen?
Yes you can. Check config for showCharacterXPBar and set it to false

Why are the star icons not showing on enemies anymore? If you want the stars back, edit enemyLvlStyle in the config.
0 = stars
1 = prefix (NOT WORKING FOR SOME PEOPLE) 2 = stars & prefix

How to turn off a specific hover text edit?
You want to set the specific hover text option to 0.
Example: timeLeftStyleFermenter = 0
