yah... alot of work really... I understand you, but I am not professional coder and cant do all this by myself.
and really I not asking about it.
from you (as a developer) I want only
1. selectable from Options menu (
directly what I am asking you to do is:
a. double HUD Interface Skin [Arcade], and give new name, something like "Arcade with big minimap".
(only this actually I cannot do)
b. change minimap size(make it 2 times bigger) and make minimap picture not transparent.
c. shift minimap, HP bar, chatbox and accuracy box.
d. copy new minimap icons and new HP bar picture to game folder and change mini-map icons paths.
and what is all! you need for this only 20 minutes
, it is simple and effective solution. and sure alot ppls will like it
sure what more HUD setting is better, lets give players a choice.
and no need (or maybe with time to add) some updates, like:
2. working with N key (resize)
3. not overlap Chat and Squads panel
4. not interfere with other panels when it's resized
5. working for all HUD skins
6. working for both right side and left side HP bar
7. inherit the border transparency ratio from the HUD setting
P.S. from first view my post looks like some noisy freak asking about some shit
...but definitely it is not
It is not question of GUI taste, it is question of functionality, and for example SEP minimap was much better current XR minimap. http://www.newerth.com/smf/index.php/topic,10058.0.html
I spend alot of time to find good icon color solution, which let icons almost perfectly contrast with any minimap and each other. all my friends who playing savage use and like my mode. Some team-play (like phoenix-scout,@ and others) and clanwar players need this
