Game Page Layout - new proposal! [First Post]

Postby lackattack on Sun Nov 29, 2009 4:40 pm

UPDATE:

Based on your feedback - I think this proposed layout should satisfy everyone. We put a basic player listing to the side of the map (like before the update, minus rank and rating) and print full statistics below the action panel. This will eliminate horizontal scrolling, while letting you immediately see who is who (and with how many cards) upon entering the game. Please vote to let me know what you think.

Proposed layout:

==================================================================




We just added game stats to the the players list on the right of the map. It means some people will have to scroll horizontally to see them, which is a shame. But we don't want vertical scrolling for each attack right? 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.

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

I'd love to hear what you think.

Note: this topic is intended for layout discussion. To discuss the update in general, please do so in the announcement. Thanks :P

I think we should have a poll as to who uses what resolution. Perhaps only very few use something that small.

A poll is ok, but that would only hit up us forum-goers...which is a small minority of the site.

For what it's worth, I use 1280x1024.

Perhaps then, we could have a message at the top of the "My games page" that asks: "Is the width of your monitor larger than 1020 pixels?"

Edit: nevermind... our current update just changed all that.

Is this mostly for users who don't use BOB? Because as a BOB user, I already have all that information. I also think that if you're going to have it, it should be on the bottom.

Also, there are major issues now that you've changed it - the timers are screwed up, the turn notifier icons are screwed up... kinks.

It's fine for me.

Just bullet points on the My Games tab? Ew! That's terrible, change it back! :?

Make it an option from the Game Settings menu? ;)

Game Page stats "right of the map"; "below the map"; or "off"?

It works really well below the map with BOB.

I like the very brief stats on the side, it fills up the dead space and gives a bit of information at a glance.

Scrolling horizontal is extremely (which I have to do now) more annoying than scrolling vertically. Please change it back or make an option to make it not scroll horizontal. Or give the spoils first (only place I can see with 1024x768), that's the only important thing.

And why can't I see who'se turn it is in the main page? That's too usefull to miss.

I prefer vertical scrolling to horizontal.

And please restore the turn order marker.

But the horizontal scrolling is still very annoying. Please make it optional.

Hmmmm, after looking at it a bit, might be better if troops were listed before regions. It'll sound silly, but that's the order I've been reading them in on BOB all these years. :D
