I agree with Rhys, this does look pretty awesome. For the "Instructions on How to Play" section, I think it should talk about the unique parts of the map that people have problems with. Things like clicking your items to equip them, how to use your "Local Skills", how to buy and upgrade spell, the fact that you need to have a spellbook equipped to use spells, and other simple things like that. The part about the stats is fine though.

The text will be sent to me in blank format I assume so that I can recreate the picture every release with my own text.

Well I guess my months of dedication during the beginning stages of MM&M meant nothing. I mean... even Neko gets his name on the loading screen... but I don't. Gosh. Way to discourage me.

Rhys is a tank though, you know he would.

Anyway - I love it. I especially like how Sin isn't mentioned. It gives it a good feel. Razz, joking aside - I do think that the Important features could be tweaked to mention a few of the things Dragon said, and I think "Power" should have its color changed as it doesn't stand out, other than that it's FREAKING AWESOME.

If anyone wants to add something to the loading screen let me know. I suppose it looks fine how it is now, but if you think otherwise, feel free to change whatever you want.

I'll make a template for text edits as the versions progress, Rhys. It will be a PSD.

If you truly want my criticism, my last complaint is that the Ms are still a bit too hard to read. I really like the characters, but maybe you could custom modify them a bit and cut out a bit more of the gold so that the actual M shows more easily.

But anyway, it's awesome. Thanks.

The deal with Neko is Quest Menu Credit and Re occurring load screen credits for whenever he gives me custom artwork. So some versions he may not be in but some he may be on. As far as I can tell from the same system you have def made much more appearances for your work then he has.

I have a few suggestions that will probably make the loading screen complete.

  • Quote :
    1). Make this text more contrasted, like the Mages, Magic, and Mayhem text.

    2). Dark text is well... too dark. Try a purple color maybe, and make the contrast in the color around the same as the other element texts.

    3). Maybe a gray color, or a different shade of brown? (I don't care as much about this one).

    4), and 5). The fritz text, make it more practical. I feel like it ruins the flow. Everything looks nice, then this plain sloppy text it there. Make it more like a watermark, slightly hidden.

    6). Sharpen important areas in the loading screen. It gives it more depth. Example is above of the difference.

    7). As Jay.J said, power should stand out more.

I touched it up with a few of Rhys' ideas, yours, and my own. I wanted to make my signature in the wax of the candle dripping down, but until I finish that, I will leave it how it is.

As always, feedback is welcome.

Lol it is, spelled right in some places but not another Razz. "Zinc & Clan ...." Is where it's misspelled.

I can't think of any criticisms beyond fixing "Zinc." It looks awesome. I would very much want that loading screen on any map that I was playing.

The M's still need a bit more definition in the downward angled parts. Other than that, awesome job.

Yeah, I added that... I don't know why it didn't show. The layers must have been hidden.

Look how far it's come from the start!
