Oh Snap

I lol’d at this (see picture). I read it on WoWInsider in the post about Ace addons (It’s Ace, not ACE by the way).

I’m going to have to say that I’m starting to agree with Cladhaire about Ace/Rock.

Still waiting for Clad to make a reply.

The art in a UI

Posted in Art, UI on January 10, 2008 by dreadlorde

Now, I’m a minimalist, but that doesn’t mean I can’t like some art in a UI. Most people now have a “minimalist” UI, which consists of: Pitbull, eePanels2, Buffalo, cyCircled+VolM, and Bartender3.

Well, that’s all fine, but there’s usually no real art. Something like this is a good example. It’s decent; 7/10 from me. But the little art that there is, it doen’t really do much for the UI. Two very good examples of art in a UI is First off Urk UI. This is one of my favorite UI’s from the old Discord site. The art is really “WoW like”. Another great artsy UI is Cinque UI. This UI is good because it’s probably the most unique thing I’ve seen in a year. The art is really techy, and it doesn’t really take up much screen space in game.

That’s all for now.

Cheers.

Tiny Buttons

Posted in Fail with tags , , , on December 22, 2007 by dreadlorde

One thing I cannot stand about UI’s is ridiculously small buttons. Here is one example. If you’re going to have buttons that small, just hide your action bars. They are barely click-able, and there’s no way can can see keybindings that aren’t 1 – =. There are some UI’s outh there though that make good use of small buttons. One example is this UI. Zizek also made good use of small(er) buttons in his chimaine 5b remake. Other than those, and a few other minimalist UI’s (mostly chimaines’ and zizeks’), tiny buttons are bad. That’s all for now.

Cheers.
