Dungeon Warnings enable/disable?

Apr 26, 2009
There used to be a warning everytime I walked into a dungeon that mentioned how long that dungeo may take to complete, and warn when leaving a dungeon. It seems I may have turned this feature off by accident. How do I enable the dungeon pop up warnings again?

I like knowing how long a dungeon will take before I hop on in. Some of these dungeons take well over an hour if on a solo mission and I like to make sure I have enough time.

We do have a temporary way for our players to re-enable these prompts, but it takes a little work.

Find the following file:

C:\Program Files\KingsIsle Entertainment\Wizard101\Bin\preferences.xml
(this location may vary with Vista)

Save a copy of this file before you make any changes!

About half way down you will see the following text:
<QuestHelperEnabled TYPE="INT">1</QuestHelperEnabled>
<ShowPVPTitle TYPE="INT">1</ShowPVPTitle>
<DungeonPrompt TYPE="INT">1</DungeonPrompt>

Notice the line:
<DungeonPrompt TYPE="INT">1</DungeonPrompt>

If you want to hide the Dungeon Prompt, set this value to 1
If you want to show the Dungeon Prompt, set this value to 0

Save the file with the changes.
Next time you log in to Wizard101 and approach a Dungeon, you will once again see the prompt telling you how long this Dungeon will take to complete.

We do have a fix in the works, but until that is implemented, this is how our players can once again enable the Dungeon Warnings.
