PostSubject: UI Guidelines/Resources   Tue Nov 06, 2012 12:03 am

UI's are created with Flash/Scaleform, the best program to create UIs is obviously Adobe Flash.

Guidelines for the UI:
  • 1920x1080 should be the resolution of the stage in Flash.
  • Textures for the UI have to be square and a power-of-two(2x2, 4x4, 64x64, 512x512).
  • It's best to pack multiple smaller images into one larger image and use that in Flash. Better memory-wise.
  • You can have multiple elements in the UI, make use of that for alignment. For example in the demo UI the tickets are separated from the trooper HUD(health, ammo) so I can align the tickets to the top and the trooper HUD to the bottom of the screen.

Im working on menu concept/interfaces concepts and I usually render in wmv format. Unfortunately I do not have adobe flash, so im thinking I could either give the video for someone to convert or I could convert the video format into flash myself using format factory.

I'm getting used to flash right now. I'll do at least the code and functionality.

Keep it up. Wink
