    Good step. It's so nice to be able to exit the game from everywhere.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Very nice. I'm happy that someone has decided to mod the UI. The old UI that rF2 used was a mod that the builders of the original rF2 used because it was better then the one they had made. Maybe Studio 397 will take notice and use your ideas to make their UI better.

    If they are... they sure are taking their time...
    We already have project like 'better UI' that have been evolving nicely for a long time now...
    Some overwhelming obvious modification needed, that moders already did, often a 1 guy projects... and yet we haven't seen anything expect bug fix from S397 in the meantime...

    Kind of weird, at least they are doing a good job on some front in the past few monts... but still, really doing themselves a big disservice by not implementing very easy, more visible modifications... but well...

    when a single guy makes a much better job in such a short amount of time than a whole studio in the last 5+ years.
    congrats.

    Yeah it makes no logical sense at all. Let's not spend any time trying to make the first thing people see look good and make it easy to use...

    Unsure if this is possible but....

    Could there be a "go race" button on the sessions settings page? Rather than having to come back out of it to then start a race?

    I very rarely play this game anymore but having come across this thread, I must say, this is better than the current UI.. Bravo

    This UI will be updated to RC version as soon as possible. At the moment is not compatible.

    I've been beating S397 about this kind of stuff - simple to implement, increase user experience by a lot.
    They should be more willing to follow users feeback. This UI is not "new", should be much more ahead in development stage.

    Again and again, too much enertia from S397... :mad:
    A company is made by it's clients - those client demanding more are the ones who project companies forward.
    I've been in both sides of the equation. Pattern emerges.

    Is it possible to have the race tab (top left) drop down with the options "Single player", "multiplayer" and "content"? So there could be full screens dedicated for each one?

    I can't remember if I mentioned before but.... could there be a race button on the "sessions settings" screen so you don't need to go back to the main screen to press race after configuring a session?

    Ohh excellent !!

    Seriously, I'm looking forward to this immensely.

    Out of interest, have S397 contacted you about using this UI going forward or anything like that?

    No. And to be honest, maybe that's good ;) I mean that this is community project and i will develop that for community as long as possible, with support for every new rf2 update,

    Just had a flashback to the early days of Windows. There were several companies who put out better browsers and especially better audio/video players than Microsoft. So MS's solution? Not build better software, but update Win95 (I think about then) so that 3rd party players were broken. I know there were lawsuits from the 3rd party folks, can't remember any names tho.
    Just hoping you don't wake up one morning and find everything gummed up! Keep at it! [​IMG]

    Hopefully in future UI's will be installable like any mod currently is (without having to copy files).
