  1. It's just a small thing, but it would make sense for the numbers listing how many uses you have of an ability to be distinguished in color or some other way from one another. (Maybe by being on different sides of the ability, or by one having a little circle around it or a colored square behind it.)
  2. Given that the pet is completely non-interactable, it seems a little strange that a giant name bubble pops up over it every time you Highlight Interactables, and it's annoying because it gets in the way of actually seeing stuff. It's especially annoying in fights when I'm trying to see the status of different characters and the giant name is blocking a bunch of stuff. I've taken to using no pet just to avoid that. Please at least make an option not to display the pet's name when interactables are highlighted.
  3. It would be great if you would (optionally?) return to (enter?) scouting mode after battle. Given how much scouting you do in this game, I often forget that I'm not still in scouting mode after battles and run off (in fast-mode, no less, because fast-mode turns back on automatically) into things I don't want to run into. I realize that determining whether you were in scouting mode before a fight might be slightly tricky, but if you don't want to bother with that just give us an "Enter Scouting Mode After Battles" option. Thanks!
  4. It would be great if party member circles' colors were based on the character's primary color, like Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition does, that would make combat a lot more readable. BGEE also makes party member circles look slightly different than other circles (double ring instead of single). That would also be very nice. Thanks!
  5. Just started playing and I'm excited. But I'm getting hung up on something little at first, and looking for advice. To start with I see this for dialog. BUT I HEAR the voiceover start reading immediately starts talking and so I hear: ...while I'm trying to read the first part. So then I have to wait until the talking is done and re-read it from the start. I assume it will do this the whole game? I feel like this is going to take me out of the experience. I just wish it paused a little to let me read.
  6. One of the issues I'm having with the current weapon sets is that you cannot reuse a weapon in a different set. For example, let's say you have a one-handed sword, a dagger, a shield, and an axe. From this, you can only create two weapon sets. Sword-dagger, and axe-shield. What if I want to use my axe-dagger in one fight, axe-sword in another, and sword-shield in a third? Currently I can't do this and I wouldn't have the opportunity to change my weapon sets unless I'm at a select site. This should be fixed to play more like TOEE's did where you can make mulitple weapon sets with the same set
  7. I know it is really early to talk about this aspect of the game, but I've been playing some of the older games and I wish that some of these shortcut keys were a little bit more logical and made playing real-time easier, not harder. One example is the quickcast in Baldur's Gate 2. It was not a logical approach, and I really doubt most people would use keyboard shortcuts for quick-cast. Anyway, I'll talk more about this when we have some engine mechanics fleshed out, but I really wish that the shortcut keys would be implemented in a way that allows for "RTS-like" play. Like I said, I can't
  8. This could perhaps be considered a bug, but there's a critical design issue with the description boxes of... well pretty much everything. Mostly, things are confusing, inconsistent, and rarely give any sort of useful information. Let's take a few talents. It will be illustrative of a general trend, and devs should IMO pay attention to this. The main thing is whenever we're presented with a levelling choice, we're rarely told what exactly what it is we are choosing. Below, I'll use green to denote useful and precise information; blue for useful but incomplete information; red for useless/re
  9. Hi, just starting the backer beta again. I find it irritating that we still have this portrait selection. Clicking through and viewing one at a time is not a good design. By the time you get through all of them you forget what the earlier ones look like exactly, it makes it hard to compare and pick which one you like the most. Especially as they add more in, and you have a bunch of custom ones (which is quite popular with these games) A grid system would be much better. The ability to view them all at once, easily compare and then click what you like. Possibly even categorized into rac
  10. It's a longer list, so I'll post it as a separate topic. Answering: No, they are not. It actually feels like the GUI designed for an old Infinity Engine games in some ways - we've really made a long way in improving GUI designs and as far as it is currently OKish... it's also needlessly tedious and doesn't always provide users with the info they need. That said though - PoE user interface is with no doubt much cleaner and more noob-friendly than say: BG, I don't want to see copying of old IE games interfaces, cause in many ways they were bad too, but I'd love if you'd take good thing
  11. I think that it would be helpful to have an option to choose to display the current action and the action time bar at the bottom of the screen along with the charterers health. This way if you want to know what action a character is preforming its always in the same place. this would also keep the map from being quite so cluttered. At the same time I can see why it would be nice to have a the ability to see what actions people are preforming in relation ship to there movement. What if you linked it to tab where holding tab would pop up the action bars over peoples heads or on mouse over it
  12. Just a small thing - the variety of portraits is far too small for the number of races that are available. Something akin to Shadowrun Returns' system (race and gender-specific portraits, 3 or so base for each race/gender combo, and lots of variations on the base portraits) would fit very well for this game IMO.
  13. Hello all, Only played a little bit of the new build, but from what I've seen it's vastly improved. Gives me a good deal of hope that they've made this much progress in 2 weeks. Combat and combat feedback have been improved... but something really has to be done about that log. Show less (especially regen), smaller font, better color coding, I dunno. But something really has to be done. It's far too chaotic at the moment to be useful. That's all. It's not really a bug, just an improvement that needs to be made.
  14. Right now when you right click or mouse over a weapon, the damage range shown is with the bonus from MIG taken into account. This makes it difficult to compare weapons that different characters are using, because if these characters have different MIG values, the same weapon equipped by both will show different damage ranges. How it needs to be shown, instead of (for example) "Sword: 16-22 slashing damage", is something more along the lines of "Sword: 15-20 (+1-2) slashing damage". Then show the net damage elsewhere on the inventory screen as suggested in http://forums.obsidian.net/topic/6
  15. seems a little strange but is their no way to just drop an item that you don't want in your stash. Other wise youl just have to sort threw tons of stuff in the stash. :/
  16. Throughout my time playing the Beta, one thing that has consistently bothered me aesthetically is how small certain Icons appear. Half of the motivation to experience this type of game is the wonderful art. I feel that cramming the ability and inventory icons down to less than their native size is a disservice both to the player and the artist that created them. You can easily see the actual size of the Inventory Icons while trading and when right clicking on an item. They appear to be 30-40% larger in that area of the interface than when in the Inventory proper. We have plenty of
  17. As it stands right now in the bb 257 I find combat too cluttered/chaotic to be playable. Being able to rotate the camera view would be extremely helpful but so would making clicking or moving the cursor over a character/enemy's health bar select/give info on the object/character. The health bars seem to find a way to be seen unlike the actual character, and if you could highlight the selected character then combat would be considerably less chaotic.
  18. Guys, I've come across a chasm in the Dyrsford Ruins and the wonderful artwork description mentions that my grappling hook and rope could be used to get across; however I have no idea how to use the grapple and hook, it won't go into any of the quick slots so how do I actually use the item? It is interesting in that the item description it mentions that the limits to how you employ tools are your imagination which filled me with hope; however, I am really stuck here, any advice would be great. Many thanks in advance.
  19. They look to be the same icons used in NWN2. As such, I'm seriously hoping they are placeholder. The neon coloring is very abrasive to the eyes and I personally would raise an eyebrow, and perhaps sneer disgustedly, if I found that the devs are actually planning on having NW2 icons in the final release of this game.
  20. It's hard to know what's worth buying unless you've memorized what each of your guys is wearing. Would be nice if you could view your toons' armor/weapons without closing out a complicated trade. Then you know whether that expensive sword really beats your equipped +12 Hackmaster. Since you don't know what the merchant will have to trade, you won't know whether he'll have a relevant upgrade until you've opened trade. This improvement would allow us to sell our equipped mace if the blacksmith has an enchanted warhammer we can afford.
  21. When using skills, draw an arrow from caster to target. Like in this image from Dota 2. It can be improved upon from Dota - if cast target is so far away you need to move, make the target cursor or arrow yellow. If moving will provoke a disengagement attack or will move you into engagement range of an enemy when casting, make arrow or cursor red.
  22. I like minimaps. It'd be nice if we could get an optional one on the hud. Disregard this if there's already a minimap feature that I missed.
  23. First of all, I apologize for not having repro instructions. If I figure out how to repro this, I will update the post. After playing for about an hour, capital letters started appearing where they shouldn't. I wish I could tell you what precipitated this. A few screenshots: gAme pAused LoAding... CoNtiNue
  24. When I kill Hendyna and Rumbald I'll get the top left corner alert Quest Failed for 'Nest Egg' and 'A Farmer's Plight' respectively. When I leave Dyrford, or go into a building, then zone back into the town, the alerts show up again.
