FFVI Terra Branford Menu iOS

It looks fine for now, but I agree with the Faesar in that it needs a bit of retouching.

  1. Agree with Kelt, the game one (first one) looks pretty bad right now with the poor transparent background.
  2. Elements. What are elements? I know you mean game elements, but there needs to be a better title for this. Or maybe just drop the category altogether from the list.
  3. The images are a bit too disparate. They need to all be on a blue background or not on a background. I understand that we can't get extremely similar images for everything, but we should keep a central theme at the very least.
  4. I like the finger. I'm a big fan of the finger. Fingers are my favorite digit, after seven.
  5. Where's Edward? >:|
  6. Cid from FFIV gives little children nightmares.

But yeah, good idea. ScatheMote 00:04, December 3, 2015 (UTC)

Largely agree with Scathe and Fae, also I dunno if we should be using a blue background. The white areas around the transparent images is really obnoxious and it's better to just have a white background so we don't need transparency. Cat (meowhunt) 00:15, December 3, 2015 (UTC)
Having the background change colour on mouse over is <3. It makes things feel more interactive, so transparency is good. You can also just have the whole image be more faded when not mouseovered but then it's not as pretty when not being interacted with.
The FF just needs to be transparented better. JBed (talk) 00:26, December 3, 2015 (UTC)
Edit: Although I can't support black text on a dark blue bground. JBed (talk) 00:27, December 3, 2015 (UTC)

Well, if we really wanted the authentic Final Fantasy experience, we could probably onMouseOver() it(? does wikia allow JavaScript events?). Cat (meowhunt) 23:14, December 3, 2015 (UTC)

You have full freedom in JS files but you can't use the JS "on" HTML attributes. JBed (talk) 23:31, December 3, 2015 (UTC)


And, vote comes as promised! Three updated designs:

  1. Design 1, with the FFVII menu background just normal, only cursor appears when hovering over.
  2. Design 2, with a white background as default, the cursor appears when hovering over.
  3. Design 3, similar to design 1, but with the image appearing faded out until moused over.

And now for a DNC vote...except without the nice DNC designs. Sorry. Vote below for which you think we should go for.--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 10:28, December 17, 2015 (UTC)

Votes for Design 1

Votes for Design 2

  1. I really like the colour transition in this one. — YuanSalut 10:36, December 17, 2015 (UTC)
  2. On the condition that the walkthrough picture gets changed since the small flash of blue on the top looks bad, I think this one is the best. ScatheMote 15:01, December 17, 2015 (UTC)
  3. It takes a few seconds for the images on design 3 to load up when I mouse over them, which is... a very awkward period, to say the least. Like, they're there, then they're not, then they're there again. It's very off-putting. Oh, and for the record, I'm against portal navigation in general and conscientiously objecting to this entire ugly process, this one just sucks least. Jimcloud 15:06, December 17, 2015 (UTC)

  5. It pains me to say this, but the icon for Music and the icon for Locations clash with the others. Otherwise, this is the obvious option. Fëasindë Peth 17:38, December 17, 2015 (UTC)

Votes for Design 3

  1. --Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 10:28, December 17, 2015 (UTC)
  2. It doesn't really look good with the cursor being the only mouse over effect and the colour change in 2 looks weird on some (equip, ability, walkthrough) and just doesn't work on others. So I guess 3 wins by default. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 10:34, December 17, 2015 (UTC)

  4. I HAVE THE POWER OF SUFFRAGE! AND ALL WILL SUFFER! I like this one because it looks nicer. Blue backgrounds for the walkthrough tab looks hideous. Don't do that. This looks like it will work. --BlueHighwind 15:02, December 17, 2015 (UTC)
  5. This is the nicest design in my opinion. It has a subtle yet obvious change on mouse over and it's appealing on the eyes. Psychobilly2422 (talk) 17:01, December 17, 2015 (UTC)

Just place any general comments/ideas here.

Concerns about Portal Nav 3's load time on images: I do have a quick fix for this issue. I can make all the images preload with some special CSS that I can add onto the portal's code. Psychobilly2422 (talk) 17:03, December 17, 2015 (UTC)
