Hi All!

We've put together a new portal page, which you should recognize as a continuation of the forum design into the game.

Hopefully we'll get some more pages moving in that direction soon too :)

I'm probably going to aim for the FFA Control panel to be the next thing I move in that direction, since it's probably the most constrained for space.

Once again, thoughts and suggestions are appreciated! =D

Regards,


-qzjul & the EE Dev Team

PS: i just added tooltips to the server dates that tell you how long is left in each server

Omg the Bonus Available bug is now on the portal page too! That's new, this bug didn't used to affect the portal page. It's telling me Bonus Available right now but the bonus is not, in fact, available

edit: beaten by Getafix but I still got it after your post saying it was fixed...

This is a more logical location for them i think....

Though technically i switched tourney to where alliance was; and alliance to where FFA was; and FFA to where tourney was....

On a iPhone you gotta be super careful scrolling down, to not accidentally click into your server. It's a big button in the middle of your screen.

IN THE GRAY BAR ABOVE ALL THE SERVERS.. FROM LEFT TO RIGHT, THERE'S "GAME PROFILE", THEN THE SERVER TIME, THEN TIME TO NEXT BONUS ON THE FAR RIGHT.

I WAS GETTING THE BONUS AVAILABLE BUG TOO BEFORE IT WAS AVAILABLE.. THEN GOT MY BONUSES WHICH WERE ALMOST DUE, NOW IT (CORRECTLY) SHOWS 12 HOURS TO NEXT.

Oh I went to m.earthempires.com from my computer and it looked the same as the desktop version when I was on my comp, but then I tried my iPod and I see it's different. But bonuses are under the gear symbol on there.

Blid that bug has been around for half a year, maybe longer. :P

But only a bunch of people see it, as mentioned on a B&S thread. Now everyone sees it, or more people sees it, it might be a bug easier to catch! iZarcon get on it! (lol)

Ok, now I have a pet peeve.

The header row that says "Game Profile", "May 7 04:23:29", "Next Bonus: Now".... I cannot middle-click on it to open the links in a new tab! That is, those aren't links at all, but scripted buttons. Same for the buttons at the bottom.

That is really lame, because I open sites in new tabs and close them when I'm done.

On mobile you can click the clock; on desktop you can click Next Bonus (the clock on desktop takes you here to the announcements). On both Mobile and Desktop it's under the Gear; I'll maybe make that turn RED or something when you have a bonus due....

crest23, I think you didn't understand me. You can't open it in a new window either. The button forces you to open it in the current tab/window, because the button is not a link.

after some sussing it out, I think the new which game is where layout does make more sense.

However, the dark look of it all does seem to be a bit out of place. I considered how it'd be with the ad banner at the bottom, but they of course want it on top. So what would help it distinguish itself and the different options (which game) stand out (grey on black?)
I don't know, I'd toss it on 99designs.com and say give me a lighter fresher more modern look for a hobbyist game and absolute minimum reward and see what kind of options you get. (Reject all of them so you get the money back) - but use it as a means of getting another opinion on how it could look like with say a green background and bright yellow and pink flowers all over the place ;)

edit: the bonus things seems to claim you have a bonus now, refesh and it shows that you have to wait for 5hrs more. Maybe a CSS bug? Something similar to the buttons disappearing from middle click when you scroll down but reappearing when you scroll up.

That is not a CSS bug, it's a bug somewhere in the caching; i don't know why it's happening, but now that it's happening more often i might be able to find it at least =/
