Halo 3 User Interface

UPDATE #3.5
Here's a video preview of the UI and what is done so far:

UPDATE #3

I guess this one is about done. I was going to add some extra buttons to the game to take you back to different sections, but I thought that would be kind of useless. I have discovered that the text input screen is hard-coded just about everywhere, so you will barely see any changes to that because I am very limited with what I can do. Besides that, nothing really special here...just new buttons and graphics that follow the theme.

TEXT INPUT SCREEN










UPDATE #2

PEOPLE SHOULD TRY READING THE BLOG FOR A CHANGE IF THEY WANT QUESTIONS ANSWERED. OK?
Here's the newest update, since everyone keeps buggin me about it. The gametype menu is pretty similar to the map menu. I made some custom images for each gametype, all of which wont be shown in this picture. Also I got a new font for buttons, so the map menu screenshot below has been updated as well. I need some sort of graphic in that empty space at the bottom. Any ideas? Let me know.

GAMETYPE SELECTION SCREEN







People are asking when it will be done. I don't know. I don't have a deadline. It'll be done when it's done. Seriously, I just work on it when I'm bored. When college semester begins again, I might lose more of my free time. The updates should be enough.




UPDATE #1


First time I think I ever used color in this blog. Oh well. Here's the newest update on the Halo 3 UI. The map selection screen, which I must say looks A LOT better than the original. Also as a bonus to these awesome graphics, you get to hold 14 maps on a screen at once, instead of 9. Convenient? I don't really know. Well without further ado:


MAP SELECTION SCREEN









Next thing I will be editing is the gametype selection menu. This update might be quick, because this page uses similar tags as the map one and half my job will be done. You'll also notice I started using my actual alias in the profile name, Lightwave is just another one I use.

Finally, apparently I am starting to get a little fanbase. X-fire helps a lot. So let me say this, I am not taking any beta testers at this time. You can bug me, spam me, or even threaten me (surprisingly I have gotten that) but you will not get an early release. I will take suggestions, but nothing else. One example is the descriptions for the maps. I will take creative descriptions for the maps and maybe even put yours in it. So let me know of any you think of. The first one, in the pic was done by me.

And if you're one of those people who just looks at the pretty pictures and doesn't read the text along with it, well I'll just ignore you for your ignorance.



ANNOUNCEMENT

I am making a new UI for Halo CE that will closely resemble Halo 3. Some parts I will make up for the sake of simplicity, but overall I will try to make the colors and theme match that of the game Halo 3. Here are some beta before/after screenshots of what is done so far. And no, I will not release until it is complete. Only a select few will be my beta testers.

MAIN TITLE SCREEN








PROFILE MENU







NETWORK SETUP MENU









Click the images they enlarge the picture. I still have much more that needs to be finished. My next part I will be working on is the select map menu.

Also yeah, I realize it has been a while since I released a comic. Expect one soon. I have an idea for one, I just have to draw it.
