There is an update, the menu option might not be flashing and red though. But updating would solve this.

For each attack? :-s
Well... maybe that's necessary for some maps or game types, but i think it's fine even if it's out of view...


lackattack wrote:Considering that even small maps are quite large these days, and we still have many users on 1024x768 resolution, getting a good layout is tricky.

it's fitting fine on my MacBook,,, but i think a pole could be beneficial as it would be a good sampling... unless you think that most forum goers have bigger monitors to compensate for their smaller [mod edit]... :P


lackattack wrote:Should the player listing & stats be above the map or below instead? Or is there a completely different solution?

The biggest annoyance for me is when the screen jumps following an attack on a bigger map, perhaps this could be eliminated by putting the attack button ABOVE the map? I dunno, i mostly play classic on the small map display, so this really doesn't effect me much.

Hey Lack,

eliminated players are still showing as receiving 3 armies.






it will be interesting to see how this info changes some players strategies.
some for the better,
some for the worse.

and no change for the rest of us who already thought thru the strategy.

Thirded. If the stats must be there, let them be above or below the map, not to the right of it.

Why was my post saying that I don't like it deleted, and yet this one remains?
And while we're at it, why are ANY negative feedback posts deleted? Don't you want feedback? Things like that tick me off more than anything else on this site.

Geez. Just because you can;t find your post, you automatically assume the mods deleted it because it said something they did not like?

:oops: Sorry, offense withdrawn.

I have had that happen to me before, so I was quick to whine again. Without cause this time. My apologies.

I agree with this entirely.

This is what it looks like at 1440x900:

Vs. the BOB stats table on the same settings:

The BOB layout looks so much nicer. If people are vying for the 'but you have to manually install BOB' argument, just follow the lead of that table. It's perfectly ordered in order of (at least what I feel) is relevant (spoils then troops then territs). Spoils having been moved to the back of the table (in the newly enacted version) just doesn't feel right... at all. One could argue that regions are more important than troops in the log, but spoils simply need to be first IMO.

Otherwise, it is a pretty solid addition. With the BOB table, however, it's pretty useless and unattractive.

Hmm, can no longer highlight Team 2 to see which territories are occupied. Still works for Team 1 so I'm assuming it's a bug?

I do a lot of reading about web development, and while in the past vertical scrolling, or "beyond the 'fold'" as it used to be called was to be avoided, a large majority of internet users say now that they don't mind some minor scrolling to get to information they deem useful. I'm pretty sure you could put ALL of the information currently held to the right side of the map down below and would see little to no complaint about the location.
