Haven't been working on it lately... Have a lot on my mind these days. Hope to continue working on it again in the coming weeks though, but I can't promise anything.

As you state it, not all dirty Wink

I still try to stay up-to-date with the projects. For the moment I don't have any time or spirit to work on anything. But I'll be back, don't worry.

edit: just notice that I reached 1000 and received a title. Thanks, motivating Wink

Are you meaning to update it so the Laptop can use a size greater than 640x480? You can have bigger pics but the animation only works for the original res.

Okay, I have an update on the interface...
I have now a complete version for both 800x and 1024x res. (NIV and EDB on only), but it's not the final version yet.

I have listened to most of you and made some changes on demand + additional changes:

on demand:
- took blue away from the stats (tact inv)
- took dreagons away
- changed the health/energy/morale bars
- weapons are not completely to the left anymore in the bottom panel
- inventory figures are now complete (by adding a backpack drawing and fixing the second gun slots
- less shiny
... and hundreds of other little and big things

remark:

- health bars from inventory should all be in correct co

Downloads available at first page...

Seems like only 10 downloads are possible... Can somebody else upload these files or give me a good file host?

Thor where did you get those pics from for the body types? Also do you have a large and normal male versions?

Oh and you left your hidden SVN folder in the zip files (not a good idea...).

Somewhere on this forum. There was a male and female one and I created a third... Did a nice job, if I say so myself.

Those hidden SVN folders can allow people information about open connections on your PC hence why they should be removed Wink

Go to Folder Options and then the view tab. Check the box to show hidden files and folders.

Thor, Just checking, but is there anything unique about your MDP#items and MDguns.STI's that will preclude me substituting them with my own versions?

Damn, forgot about that!!!!

You probably should delete those this time, as they are from some recent (if not latest SVN release)... I'll post new threads...

Does anyone have a phtoshop layered template of the Interface and Laptop screens? Either vanilla or 800 / 1024 res ones. Would be a lot of help to figure out what's editable and whats not, instead of peeking thru a bazillion of sti files. Thor? Pretty please with sugar on it?

What ya gonna use it for? I have a layered section of it. Not the full lot yet as I haven't got to the other websites (just the merc management ones).

BR's is the most complex, AIM a close second. Lots of STI's there Smile

I was more interested in the Map Interface, honestly. Wanted to see how much design can you include and how much you're forced to stick to default graphics in different colors. I have this idea of incorporating military hardware into that screen to make it look realistic, but dunno if it's feasible.

You actually have tons of freedom. Each STI has it's own palette so you can don't have to worry about set palettes. There is normally a full bkgd pic (roughly 640x480ish) and then the rest are overlayed on top. The only thing we don't have is partial transparency, which would allow some really solid interface building Smile

Only things that are limiting are the boxes that are dynamically built (set pieces) so you are limited by their sizing, but you can normally get away with a lot.

indeed, and I don't keep all of my layered drafts, sorry.. Have some, but if you look at the .sti's you know what is possible and where the different aspects overlap each other.

EDIT: or at least you get a good idea

Hello Again Thor.

Some more Criticism/feed back for you Smile

Unfortunately, I find the (lack of) contrast between the Dark grey background, and the Black writing, of the Laptop Menu system, maks it very hard to read the menues and pop ups.
Perhaps using a grey halway between the current version and the original version would be better.

You could also Delete the silhouettes.STI from you interface bundle too, as that is another file customized by myself and DBB.

Is the laptop wallpaper avaliable as an IMP merc portrait?

And what is this Hot Ira refered to above?

Ah, something I wanted to ask for a long time...

Could somebody with some more graphical talent improve the faces of the male inventory figures? I tried, but I can't seem to get them better...

Marlboro? Wink

WHOA gotta change Ira's accent if you use that pic!!!

Did you make Kyla? If you did there are a couple of things I would suggest; first there needs to be more skin tone contrast, it's a little mono coloured at the moment. Second she needs more high and lowlights to bring out the shapes of her face. Maybe make here skin a little warmer (warm photo filter in PS does a good job of that).

All good though Smile


More IMP's as you ordered Wink

Good job, Thor. I like this interface very much. But

http://www.mediafire.com, Can't visit in China.(Damnable Chinese GFW(Great Fire Wall)!)

Does you mirror it to esnips or anyother space? Thx.
Thor
Can anyone else upload it? Kermi, I know you keep several files available for download?

@ zwoooo: esnips, you need to sign up for that, any alternative where you don't have to sign up?
