Are you open to suggestions about the GUI and is this a good place?

I'm open about GUI engine improvements, as long as they don't break too much existing code.
I don't think I want to spend much time on the actual GUI code, aside from fixing planned issues: 5852 5282

My main concern about the GUI is found in the objectives screen. Trying to compare the differences between Easy-Medium-Hard difficulties when the list of objectives is long is a daunting task because of the large fonts and the next/prev page system.

To keep thing simple, I think the problem could be solved if we somehow could reduce the size of the font in the objective list, either via config file or in-game via A+ and A- buttons. A more elaborated approach would involve scrollbars.

Please let me know if didn't explain myself well or if you require clarifications to understand what I am talking about.

Many thanks.

That's already possible. Chech your video/advanced settings. There is an option to adjust the hud size.

Now, that is useful. Funny how long it takes sometimes until someone comes up with such a small yet huge tweak.

Now we just need to remove the console clutter from core asset bugs and pointless mass-warnings and the console will be perfect.

There are more changes in dev16599-10071, please read the original post.

Basically:

  • vector component indexing is fixed
  • expression evaluation order fixed
  • don't disable auto-updates of register because of a reference to it
  • Set command can now have expressions on right side

I wonder if we have information about GUI scripts anywhere that should be updated?

I've noticed a lot of new GUI warnings when loading various FMs - haven't looked too closely at that, though.

Yes, all those missions have incorrect GUIs, including Saint Lucia and New Job.

The original GUI engine did not report any kind of error, just tried to continue doing something. And it had some bugs.
The latest GUI engine reports almost all issues as warnings, has most bugs fixed, and still tries to continue despite errors.

      Anyone have any luck with light.setShader( string ) ? It seems to make whichever light you apply it to full-bright on the initial invoke?

      Don't you hate it when there's a quality discussion on a forum somewhere online about something, but then two disagreeing users derail and transform it into a back-and-forth poo slinging competition at one another?

      After watching the first three and a half episodes of "The Sandman" last night, I realize once again that overly imaginative narratives are not for me. Also, the main actor looks like he has a toothache.
      Which makes me wonder, is there a Dark Mod mission with a medieval dentist?
