    Disband Game button position switch(updated 5/12/2009)

    Disband Game button position switch, by Jager - 065

    Files effected: game_lobby.interface

    It's counterintuitve at the moment how the "Start Game" and "Disband Game" buttons are positioned. The "Start Game" button should be the closest one to the middle of the screen, because it's the one used most often.

    People are used to that setup, for example on every Windows PC when you get a confirmation box(or choices down the botoom of an options panel, in non-Microsoft applications too), "Yes" or "Ok" is always on the right, and "No"or "Cancel" on the left. But it's against the common standard in HoN.. which made the problem we have now.

    All this mod does is switch the two buttons postions, and returns the disband button's text colour to white, because it's then unecessary for it to be red with the buttons orientated this way. I assume S2 made it red to avoid switching the buttons postions(as many people have requested), or they aren't awar of ths issue(how that possible I don't know). That's just avoiding the underlying problem though. That being said, I hope this mod doesn't have to exist for long, and S2 implements the changes in it. If you like this mod, and would like to see this happen, please vote here.

    Current disband button position(client version 0.1.49):

    That's a good idea, will do. They'll be up in a few mins, I'll edit the OP. The mod's nothing fancy(because I'm not capable of that ), it's just to change a major UI annoyance.

    Most of the buttons in HoN are backwards.

    Yeah I noticed the quit buttons confirmation box was like this as well. But that's works well for that purpose, because it's to make sure if you acutally want to quit, so you need to move the cursor. I don't like that confirmation box though, I think I might download the mod to remove it.

    I don't know if the screenshots are showing it correctly, but the text isn't red after this mod. I suggest you leave it red.

    Ah good point, maybe that should be changed too.

    Yeah that's intended, as it says in the OP(although not clearly, I fudged an edit. Corrected now). I don't think it will be needed anymore, now that people can click on the side with the action they're used to. Because it's not a problem in all those confirmation/dialog boxes on other applications or an OS where the buttons are arrnage this way and have the same text colour.

    I find the colour has the opposite effect of drawing you to it instead myself(so you click it), rather then pointing you away from it. Anyone else feel the same? I can make another version where it's red as well if many people want it.

    It seems to me like S2 either was trying to avoid switching the buttons which was why they made it red, or they weren't aware of the issue.

    Just add an "Are you sure? Yes/No" dialog when you click disband

    And then that will get annoying, and everyone will complain that it's wasting their time.. That isn't the problem I'm fixing here though, so your welcome to make that mod yourself.

    Edit: Sorry guys, I forgot to change the link to the honmod version. It should work now. I'm suprised nobody said anyhting.

    It looks terrible. Red on blue does not blend well.

    That's why S2 made it red. Because it's ugly as hell, so you keep your mouse away from that s**t

    I personally like the red there. It makes me want to run the f**k away from the button. I wouldn't touch that s**t with a 20 foot pole.
