The orange button font has been implemented. Now we need to decide about the window background. The following 7 backgrounds are available:

Background 2 would additionally involve converting all buttons, the window borders and all the other UI elements to look the same as in-game. For the other backgrounds, some tweaks to the UI elements' style to make them blend in better are possible.

My order of preference is 1 > 4 > 7 > 5 > 6 > 3 > 2.

just a question do you plan to use the new font color for this windoews as well ? (I would prefer this for reasons of unifying the Interface)
If yes would it be possible to provide the above shots with this color?

For the pure backgrounds it is hard to decide but I dopn't like 2 as it is a bit boring to me, I don't like 4 and 6 as greenish background looks to obtrusive to me. and 3 looks a bit obtrusive as well. no preference yet between 1, 5 and 7

1 or 2 for me. I also like 7, but 1 has better contrast for reading the map descriptions.

In the future, that would probably be good (unless there's a majority for keeping the current colours there). But the FsMenu and the Wui currently use many shared fonts, so changing the colour here would also change it in-game. So this is something for (yet another face-grin.png ) follow-up branch. But here's an (incompletely converted) preview:

1 or 3 for me.

Just for your information:

I have a branch up with the goal to unify all fsmenu screens in terms of

  • all Screens will use UI::Box for layouting
  • a common style of widget alignmet (e.g. currently, "back" and "ok" buttons sometimes are top of each other, sometimes they are next to each other, most screens have a title but different padding and so on)
  • Introducing a small inheritance tree to be able to reuse a given working layout (nested boxes), for example TitledMenu, TitledTwoColumnMenu, ...

As far as I see it, you won't touch the widgets of the screen but "only" the font styles, backgrounds and so on, right? face-wink.png So we won't interfere too much... face-grin.png

So you're already working on that? Great face-smile.png

The branch I have open currently (and which I hope will get merged sometime soon, it has some bug fixes in it) touches the layout only insofar that title_ is removed (as it is now replaced by the window title), and that FullscreenMenuBase and FullscreenWindow are also deleted (instead the windows now inherit directly from UI::Window).

The follow-up for the styling shouldn't touch your work much either… I hope ;D
Well actually I may have to change the UI::Textarea ctor to require a font style argument, as labels are currently the same font style in game and menu. which is one place where conflicts are likely…

Shall we go for design 1 so that we can get the branch in?
