Quote from ArcadianDelSolver 2.0 of my very first UI attempt (and its dual screens. yowza).
for a 2.0 vers of a 1st time effort, I cant say Im unhappy, but I sure wish I could eliminate that bottom mess and make crisper frames. I love Pitbull, but is it just me, or is its frames sort of 'soft around the edges' ? Or is it my video settings?
I haven't used Pitbull in ages, however if you have your video resolution set to anything other than 1x multisampling, that may be the culprit for the "soft around the edges." With 1x, you should be able to have crisp lines, for example when using a 1 pixel wide line, or pixel fonts. Aside from this, I have no other guess.
For the "bottom mess" you mention; if you know the keybindings, could you perhaps hide the numbers? This may add to a neater appearance.
Were you to make the bottom pannel higher, you could obviously increase the chat box's side, however you may be blocking out too much screen. Trying different fonts may help with number of lines, but it'd be a matter of finding a font that scales well, and having it set to a possibly smaller size.
