Call for testing: Implementation of a new UI theme

Call for testing: Implementation of a new UI theme

Postby QwertyChouskie » 28 Mar 2020, 04:27

Almost 2 years after https://forum.freegamedev.net/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=7974, the new skin based on the modern icon style is now ready for some wider testing. If you want to help out, it's pretty simple:

1. Make sure you are running a build of STK from git, as 1.1 is missing a bit of supporting code for button padding.
2. Join an empty server, then paste this in the chat box and it Enter:

{l Code}: {l Select All Code}
/installaddon https://jacobspctuneup.tk/STK/modern.zip


3. Go into Options -> Interface, and change Skin to "Modern" (ideas for a better name welcome)

From there, just use STK! If/when you notice any issues (spacing problems, bad/unclear icons, anything really), post them here so I can get everything polished up nice.

So what do you all think? Looking good or needing more work? This has been a long time in the making, let's make sure it's as good as it can possibly be. :)

I really like this skin it looks fantastic and I couldn't notice any big issues.

Just one really small one:
The style of the question mark changes when you play a track without screenshot.

Noted. Looks like an STK bug (not loading the themed icon), will track it down and get it fixed. :)

Thanks to everyone, who over the years, helped out with this!

I was a bit skeptical about this new UI design at first but I tried it in the game now and it really looks awesome. Great work!!
