Just an updated image of one of the menus (arte by Sanity)

As you can see I have now separated the person from his comments, the demo developer logo is present and when selected takes you to a slideshow of their logos.

These demos where possible will be animated

I havent got any time to give a go at this bippy ;/

I still see some stuff here.
-You are still using the text above as a negative or additive layer or something
-the background color for the comments is not quite nice. How about just a black box at 50% transparency?
- What's the deal with the names? I mean, who cares? Nobody knows Akira or Burseg except us

Txt above will be fixed as solid white or whatever colour

I want the other colour behind the comments to separate it from the name, reason, I don't like all black, I'll play with other colours but personally I like it, anybody else got any thoughts on this?

I am using names because it gives mare validity to the comments, makes them seem more real and less likely I made them up !!!

I would understand you if you were using names like "Jay Miner"or "Michael Jackson", but these nicknames can be made up babble, actualy, if you dont get enough comments,I suggest you to make them up yourself

I think the colors are ok bippym. But you do as you want. Could work with transparent black also, considering the backgrounds contain colors.

I need some opinions on the following pic

Currently the menus have gone with the blue box look (The 2nd set of comments in the pic)

I have been playing around though and personally like the look of the white/pink glow of the comments

What do you guys think?

Well I can't say you're into radical improvements. Main things to keep in mind are readability and color compatibility. Here are different colors with different hues and they all are too saturated. May I suggest using a single hue for everything except the image on the background? A monochrome, although not necessarily black&white text will do better than this. Or for example, just use #364CA1 for text background as you did, #EFFDC8 for informational titles and white for all the text and remove all the glows. Additionally I can't categorize rloaderro's opinion with heetach's. rloaderro's part looks like it's more relevant with the part above it because it's so different in style than the heetach's part.

This is the best part and this style can develop into the whole interface.And I only just noticed the main menu link bottom right. Well place the elements first, define their relevance to each other in your mind and set their sizes and colors accordingly. "Watch Demo" is important, but not 20 times important than the "main menu" likewise only a little difference between the two would be ambigious so, just make the two the same size. That's just an example solution but a tip on how you can think about interface desgn.

I would say that burseg knows what he's talking about. There are lots and lots of logical stuff regarding graphics. I don't know them all precisely, but I know OF them. Font sizes and colors are improtant when it all comes around. So put time into this, and this will be one great DVD.

Burseg always knows what he is talking about when it comes to graphics ( no matter how irretating it can be, but he's focking always right that sod! )
