EDIT: Found solution. See my 3rd post for solution
I've been having issues with the player shop UI either showing a few items as blank entries or missing text (as seen in the picture below). This does not happen on all player shops, just a majority of them when I go to buy something (most of the time it happens I am buying weapons). Text and windows may be missing when following the steps to buy something. Sometimes, the confirmation window that pops up when you want to purchase something will not show up, but I can still hear the sounds. It makes buying items extremely complicated as I have no visuals to go off of.
As seen below, some UI elements will come back depend on what changes on the UI. The screenshots attached are slightly different than what I wanted to capture because the UI changed when I hit the screenshot button. Picture 1, 2, and 3 are all the same shop, but each cycling through the item details tab on the right. You can see entries are blank on tab 1, then the entries mostly come back with some random UI text on tab 2, then everything is normal on tab 3. Keep in mind that even if the UI is normal here, the confirmation window can sometimes be missing or there would be a blank window with no text.
I am on PC. I have already done a file check (via the PSO2 launcher) and it found no issues. I am currently running on Steam, but have seen this with the Microsoft Store install also.
Has anyone else experienced this and might know a solution for this? This is a terrible user experience.
