Overhead text not appearing

Yeah, so whenever I type something in the local chat (and yes it is on) The text shows up in the chat box, but not over my character’s head or anyone else except for the NPC’s I can see their text fine. ) It works for my friends they can see text over their avatars but I can’t see mine. Is anyone else having the same problem?

My theory is that when Runescape 2 updated to 3. I had my public off at the time cause I was recording the final minutes of Runescape Money 2 at the portal. When Runescape 3 came out I think the effect was still on or something even though I tried to change it I dunno, but yeah I wonder if its just me. or there’s something that I missed. But yeah , thanks for your time reading this.
