Oh yes don't get me wrong, I agree with a lot of what you wrote too but not all. I think the main menu with the channels is a pretty good view, and scrolling down to see the games *should* be natural since they're already half off-screen. Scrolling down is something you'd expect. Considering ManiaPlanet itself hosts multiple games, it makes sense to have to click on Canyon or Stadium or whatever you want to play first.Monk9443 wrote: ↑16 Jun 2018, 12:18I tried to look more from the most general perspective, while i agree with everything Miss has pointed out, i firmly believe that just fixing the inconsistencies and removing the stuff that does nothing is simply not enough. It would be much cleaner and easier to use, but it wouldn't fix the root issue, that for me is all the unnecessary menus the user has to go through to just play.
Of course the extra "Play" button on the title itself might not be super helpful, it might be better to just directly enter the pack instead of having to confirm it after clicking. But then there's another problem (which is technical and perhaps could be solved) which is that entering a pack takes time to load the pack, which, if you just want to quickly look through serverlists or so, is not a very great experience if it just went directly into the pack.
Also.. gamepad navigation probably doesn't work in the main menus..
