PostSubject: Mousehole - Colors   Tue Aug 03, 2010 9:03 am

Heya,

there is one thing in Transformice which really bugs me:

The Door Colors. They are way too similar, at least they are for me, since i can´t differ them due to Daltonism.

Maybe i could differ them better if the colored frame would be thicker, i don´t know, probably not.

It´s so embarassing if i get to be shammy on a battlemap and have to ask for the direction of my door. Facepalm

Chat usually looks like this after that question:

Quote :

: HAHAHAHAHAHA tard
: <<<<<<<<<
: y>>>
: pink...
: <<<<<
: lol woot!!11
: >>>>>>
: laft XD
: <<<<

Can be quite funny, but mostly not for me... ^^ I don´t even try to battle anymore for the cheese, i just go troll or build me a castle...

So again (emailed the devs already):

Since i know i´m not the only one with that problem, I vote for different colored doors!

Old: Door 1 ____ Door 2
New: Door 1 ____ Door 2

The way they are colored now makes it unnecessary hard to differ them.


Greetings,

Sin

You aren't able to see Red and Green, and the "greenish" color in the aqua door causes you to be unable to be able to see the room. Pink is like red, just lighter, so you can't see it either.

I think Red and Blue would be the way to go. There are color blindness for Red and Green, and another colorblindness for Blue and Yellow. Choosing Red and Blue would allow the most people to be able to see both colors.

I agree, they should change the colors.

Wait wait wait. What?

>Daltonism

Oh, colourblindness. Yeah I guess it would be nice if they changed it for you (and if there's other people with this problem).

At first I was like "What, what the heck? They don't look the same at all!" but anyways; It's sad but I wouldn't get my hopes up for them changing it. I agree that it would be good and that dark blue and dark red would be a bit more suited. But it's a free game, and with the map editor happening and all that you really can't expect them to do much about problems like this for a small set of individuals.

But yeah I hope they do in fact help you out.

If they don't tell you the right answers, you could always play with me. I'd tell you which door yours is.

When I read this, I was really sad. I made you a (hacked) version of Transformice that simply makes the pink shaman turn black, and the blue shaman turn white.

Here's a mirror for the download in case the attachment doesn't work: (EDIT: Use the other link. It's better)

If you want any other changes, just ask. Sorry I couldn't get the brown & blue colors like you wanted, but it's very hard for me to get specific colors. Cheese

They need a colorblind mode implemented.

More options should be available to customize the game.

Some of my friends suggested that I completely remove pink and blue, and have just black and white.

So that's just what I did.

Wow! Shocked

Really appreciate your effort Supermouse, didn´t expect that! Will definitely try that out tonight! Thank you for that! Cheese

Loved the suggestion of the guest commenter, might try that as well. ^^

And Alice is right ofc, it would be nice of them to change, but also pretty unrealistic. And i understand that.

I guess i just wanted to share my little story since i have never been confronted so obviously and repeatedly with my "problem" before.

In real life Daltonism never has been much of a problem for me, my life is still full of colors, although it might be that i confound a dark green t-shirt with a dark brown one or stuff like that.

Quote :
Similarly, violet, lavender, purple, and blue, seem to be too many names to use logically for hues that all look alike to him.
This explains quite good imo, although it is a slightly different color palette for me. Smile

Whatever, really appreciate the positive response of this community, especially Supermouse!

You guys can always find me in Room 27 on En1 if you want to hook up ^^

Greetings,

Sin

Since today i get a "TypeError: Error #1034" with the custom client.

If its not too much work i would be very happy if you could update the client?

Here you go ! Sorry I couldn't get the blue shaman name at the very top to change--to make up for it, I put in the forums and map editor. The map editor is actually the Help button. It's still very incomplete.

Nonono don't use the updater. The only reason why my client works is because it's using a different Transformice.swf. If you use the updater, my client is going to be replaced.

Also, I always get the latest files :p

I was afraid it would do something like that. Well I would delete my previous post, but I'm either completely blind since I looked for like 10 minutes and don't see a way to do that, or there isn't an actual way to delete the post. :/

It´s allright, i read carefully nevertheless. ^^

Thank you very much for the update! I will have a look at the .swf file today. That way i can use the updater to get the latest files and hopefully can modify the swf by myself. Probably, if not i would have to ask you after each update Neutral

Oh, that's fine. I play that client, anyway. XP It's much more fun, and I get to see the forums.

I think there should be a mode where there is a big number 1 above one shaman and one mousehole, and a big number 2 above the other pair. this would be minimal effort, and it would let colorblinds see it.

It'd be a good idea if they changed the colors.
Even though more people aren't colorblind then colorblind(I think?), they should still change them because people that aren't colorblind will still be able to see them fine, and colorblind people will be able to tell a difference in the holes.

The reason that I like the number thing is because although I would get used to it, the colors we have now are more like "Look at me I'm a shaman day glo colors," and I like that.
