Call for a Designer

Post by Fastdeath » 03 May 2011, 00:22

I've added a "login" feature to Warzone and now i need someone to redesign the whole "Main Menu" -> "Multiplayer" stuff.

Thats how it looks currently:

Click on "Multiplayer":
multiplayer_login.jpg
Successfull Login:
multiplayer_logged-in.jpg
Error:
multiplayer_error.jpg
Click on "Connect ip":
multiplayer_ip-join.jpg
You can Design it as you want there are NO restrictions except for the colour scheme.

Yeah exactly.
There is one limit :/
Currently our minimal Frontend Resolution is 640x480 so you aren't allowed to make this any larger.

I think we agreed on a 800x600 minimum resolution for the game a while ago. 640x480 is just so tiny.

in what kind of data you need it? are there texpages that should be changed or do you want a menu created from scratch?

PS moving this topic to Artwork section could be useful.

I think he is looking for images or sketched of what it should look like.

Why Elio's sketches don't fit this?

Which sketches? We're not talking about the in-game UI (in case you were referring to the beta widget stuff), just the lobby UI.

You have an official artist that made nice beta widgets for the in-game UI, I think he can create the lobby UI with the same style. :)

Yeah, looking for a better layout (Buttons, List Style, IP Form).

very nice but I'd fix some stuff. :-)
1)the "game name" string shouldn't be repeated so many times. same for the other columns.
2)buttons are too gigantic. for blind guys I think.

Wow, nice work DRAAK!

Can't implement "Voice" and "USER INFO" right now, so i need to omit them.
I nee the text "Multiplayer" as a Sidetext so it looks like the other WZ stuff, but thats not a problem.
Ohh and we need to display an Infotext so the users known where to register....

Agree. +Sorting A-Z/Z-A (or 2p-8p/8p-2p, ping, VoCom etc... )
