If you're a win8/win10 user there's a fix for most of the display issues.  I sort of think it's bundled in the new downloads of the client, also a link here:
http://en.war2.ru/downloads/#Others

You want the ones by aqrit.  There's a bunch of them for some reason... i think they all tend to affect the user slightly differently so maybe try one at a time and see what works.

This all started when apparently I didn't have anti hack enabled...which I didn't even realize was a thing.  So I uninstalled and downloaded the newest client and re-installed....and now I have no icons for people in chat, and if I open profiles or other pages they just overlay and get all fucked up / unreadable.  I don't have ddraw enabled from the installer.

Well the thread where people were working on this is here:
http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,1790.0.html

And it was done specifically for win8/10. So it shoud apply to those

That was the trick...I dumped this file into my war2 directory.
ftp://ftp.war2.ru/war2/ddraw3/ddraw.dll

Thanks guys.
