Hi Kalyo;

We haven't been able to reproduce this. Are you using a custom skin made by you, or modified the default skins? When you select a choice (or after completing any dialogue line) the Dialogue Ui is indeed closed. if we didn't have any blending, there should appear the flickering you mention, since there will be a frame in which the UI is closed.

However, we avoid this using an animation transition. Fading the Dialogue UI allows the blending to pickup before the fading finishes. Not sure if this makes sense.

We don't really like this method, but made sense at the moment when we created it. I'll open a new ticket and look for a way to capture when the Dialogue ends and only close the Dialogue then.
