Black Health Bar

All was fine till 3.0

My health bar on my main then started flashing between black and red and various people in ops groups would do the same, all other characters were fine. I tried 4 different graphics drivers to rule these out.

Even with text enabled it wasn't best suited to ops etc so I decided to try a total uninstall and deletion of all folders including those tucked away in appdata.

After re-instalation the health bar on my main is completly black with red text but all other characters are fine.

Anyone any idea's its making the game impossible to play at a higher level than just mats grinding as its not easy to see whats going on with my health. I havent tried an ops since the reinstall to see if other members of the group are suffering the same and all I see is black for them.

update:

I completely factoried my laptop and reinstalled the game from scratch over night.

issue still remains only my main is having this issue making it unplayable other characters are OK, I am positive this is something being generated from a server level health bar is black health bar text is red (inverted) I am going to grab a second laptop today and install from scratch to check this theory.

Try removing armour etc , historically some bugs have originated from certain armour pieces . given you have uninstalled etc it may be something like that, but maybe not only one way to check I'm afraid is trial and error

tried changing to a UI used by another character ? and use it on that character instead of its default selection ?

Aye tried everything UI based, tried respeccing, gear removal, standing up and spinning round with my laptop whilst singing the life day song pretty much everything.

Nearly installed on other laptop so I can take a look there.
