As the name says, this is the thread for UI feedback.

The plan for the UI was originally very green, like old school DOS or the Matrix. But I'm feeling like it's overpowering the art, which is rarely as saturated.

So what about a more neutral blue? I haven't changed the whole UI yet, just the main screen. Note, that main screen image is really blue already, but it isn't the final piece that I'm going to be using for that splash screen. So keep that in mind.

Attached both versions for comparison.

Can you also try the turquoise-green from the first image in the other post?

Sure.

Here's another one, it's not as turquoise or saturated as the logo in the other post (I'll try that now), but it's a bit more green.

Yeah that last one works real well, it gets that happy middle of retro vibe and look I can see.

Though I still think it draws the eyes alot(regardless of color), maybe make the menu smaller would fix that(after all the artwork is great)?

The new design is not awesome, but better, and I like the scanlines version.

I think the glow effect needs to be toned down a bit for a more clean look. Then bright green might work better.

That's also my fav, but if a lot of stuff in the match GUI is also like that I think my eyes will hurt after a while.

I like the blue/green one, but if this thread is anything to go by getting the colour 'just right' probably isn't going to happen as we've all slightly different tastes. I do think most everyone is in agreement that the bright green was a bit too overpowering (except for Nick ;p )

I prefer the green, aesthetically, but I don't like it as much from a usability standpoint. Why not make the color user-configurable, at least within a narrow range of options?
