Locked: The official VGChartz 2.0 Thread

Forums - Website Topics - The official VGChartz 2.0 Thread

Well I've been playing around with it a bit and I love the way the Sales graphs are set up. You highlight the flags and it switches to that region...very slick. I also like how you can see the top tens pretty much the same way. I like it all so far.



Love the product, not the company. They love your money, not you.

Yea, I am got the AC:CF up to about 50 screen shots so I should approach the 100 limit soon. I still get (An error has occurred....) after loading screenshots although it still does load them.

I figured out the problem with the menu bar is. It's flash.

Flash <<<<<<< Ajax (for web sites)

 

That's why we can't middle click to open in a new tab, and it's probably why the popup menu dissappers as soon as you take the mouse off of it.

Didn't notice it yet, as since the site change I've been on very few threads, but if and when I'll start again to use the site and its forums for their main purposes, it will be a pain in the arse for me. I really hate links in Flash that don't have the right-click menu usual in html links.

Brett and I have already discussed this particular issue. We're going to pull the menu out of flash at some point which will help us in a few ways:

1) Performance improvement - flash not needed for this

2) Dynamic links based on site privledges - something we can't do very well right now

3) Right-click freedom - obviously

4) Better control over the senstivity - the old menu was highly sensitive too, but this one seems more so

I was just adding some achievements and there really needs to be a way to add all of them at once. Also there should also be an option for DLC or Secret along with the Coop or online options.

Already working on that as far as adding multiple ones at once - I agree, it's a pain right now. I realized it just before launch, but didn't have enough time to get it in place...

 



Hey-o, now I can navigate using the Recent Threads list from inside a thread! Thanks, Talon.

There is supposed to be most recent threads or something in your profile page like before right? It is just a blank box there. Also, there is a blank box below recent threads while viewing threads. I assume this is your user review side tab but it is showing up blank. I have no clue where the user review section went for either the side tab or on your profile page. It is simply gone....



Just had a quick look over and there are two issues I have with the new redesign:
- Top level menus are in flash. So can't open them in separate tabs.
- Header (logo + menu + user login + ad) takes up about half of my browser window (at 1280x800). That's a lot to look through before you see some content.

Adding games to wishlists adds it to your overall games collection.

May I suggest a filter so that the user can select whether they want to view owned games/wishlist.

As for now I had to remove my wishlist games, as I felt like I was "cheating" in a way.

That's because the query in the profile hasn't been updated to take advantage of the new own/play/track/wish stuff - if you 'track' something it'll probably show up in your owner list as well. That's a bug I need to work on...

 



One more thing I noticed, on the user reviews there is no longer a recent update section stating what section you recently updated.  Also, I am loading a lot of screenshots I have for AC:CF.  I am trying not to load duplicates but it may happen since I went out of order on my pic loading.  Is there going to be a way to remove your own uploaded files (take money back away from you also) if you noticed you load duplicates?  Or should you just notify a mod if you notice you loaded a duplicate photo?

Good point - I'll have to check into that. I'm sure it's still auditting the changes, just not displaying them right now...
