Colours! So many colours! :aah: (please note the "u" to make sure that everybody knows I prefer the language from the old world ;))

A little improvement I guess... I will have to get used to it but I think it is ok. But ][avok... one question: why not showing ALL numbers... red if not in and green when the turn is in. A green o for cplayer (turn is always in) and a red "x" if the race is dead and will never do anything.

The only complex thing was estimating what "_" is what race so that would really solve that problem and give all those hurting colours more sense. It is good as it is and would be even better imo... I hope you like that idea :thumbup:

It's a work in progress to make things less generic and you can thank Warped Board for the cosmetic changes. We're open to suggestions.

I've modified things based on your comments... I agree, seems easier to scan if the "_" placeholder is changed. The CPlayer thing is implemented now too...

Is there a way to make it when so that when a turn is missing thae race # would blink?

I know! We could make spinning, blinking numbers with Flash! :twisted:

How's this idea: Split "Turns Status" column into "In" & "Missing" columns; leave the dead races as dark red & CPlayer as green "o" (perhaps darker green though, to eliminate the eye distress), but make everything else standard white?

How about we show them nothing. Just a blank page.

Yeah,

first thing I saw was that the Host has run and I couldn't see the writing missing or received for the different races so I thought oops, something's wrong. But later it looked like it does now and I think too : impressive and very useful to see the status.

Good job,

radi

I have heard that approximately 20% of men are colour blind - so I wonder what colours 1 out of 5 of you are ACTUALLY seeing :lol:
