login screen lolwut

Post by Sol » Tue Dec 20, 2011 4:17 pm

ok a few things, IE sucks. We all know it, whether you are a die hard fan, deep down you know it.
Because of such IE reads things explicitly and it likes to be different, but no, not a good different, a bad different. I'm fully aware that you cant login from IE, that is about to change very soon though, admin kinda jumped me last night, i didnt think he would release the login screen until after i woke up, so i didnt have enough time to finish the IE css (yes it has a whole separate file to all the others because it has childish layout issues, actually the whole browser is an issue). Luckily this is an easily expandable and adaptive layout.

So for IE users: http://gatewars.com/login_plain.php, just for now to login.

If you actually want to see it in its godly unfiltered bliss I suggest firefox:
http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

Apparently chrome is being IE now.

Other minor browsers seem ok with it, namely safari for mac and Opera.

On another note I made the browser checking more comprehensive so mobile browsers should (more than likely) be redirected to a plain login form to login. I'll be offering a link to the plain login above as well somewhere on the login, as I have no doubt there will be some 'small screened' devices that will render the page oddly.

And yes i will be changing the typing text to a darker or lighter colour so its more visible

Also instead of creating a million i hate it or i love it threads for the mods i would suggest containing it in this thread.

I recommend not using Chrome. It sucks. Hard.
Things look much prettier on FF. :smt050

Characters are not fitting well in Chrome with the name/mail/password boxes. I didn't try with Firefox yet the login page.

I am not having any issues aside from the text color in chrome, maybe cause my screen is different.

Latest Chrome Version, Kubuntu 11.04LTS <= what im running.

Looks like **Filtered** and takes way to long to load.

Congrats this just killed any chance of me ever playing ascended.


And no I'm not trolling.

Who really wants to see all that **Filtered** on a login screen?

Simple was much better, at least then everyone could log in, took me 25 minutes to load the entire page.

Not everyone has super fast high speed internet..

I creep though shadows
I rise up at night
I live just inside you
And give you a terrible fright
I walk through the darkness
I lurk under your bed
I live in your wardrobe
I creep up in the shed.
I tiptoe through the corridor
I follow you anywhere
I rip your braveness apart
And never ever care
I am fear so don't come near..

Can't really work like that, unless the user stores their session forever (which won't happen), there is nothing really to define a user. Although it seems to load at a reasonable rate anyway, i'm currently under the influence of roughly dial up speed, that's how i was working with it. When the user caches it, it will load much faster, and since its not 'ever changing' and assuming the user doesn't dump their cache every other day, and assuming they don't have a slower speed then dial up, they should be reasonably fine, if not there is a perfectly good plain form available to log in through. Pretty sure that loads fast. Not to mention the direct login through main which skips the main event.

IE doesn't suck. It DID suck in a previous version, which is where it got its bad reputation from. Since then, it's been great, just as other browsers have been. It just had the unfortunate fate of keeping its old reputation.

it's a somewhat good browser if you are a consumer, it has finally caught up with the others in simplicity and speed, but as a designers perspective its still crap, unfortunately it still can't do half the things others can for instance you can't use shadows for texts, you can easily see that if you switch from chrome or FF straight to IE at the ascended home page. Apart from that you have to 'spell' everything out for it, much like java vs php. So in one hand it's good, and in the other it's not. So you can either have a browser that has finally caught up with the rest of world yet lacks quite a few functions, or have a browser that has walked along side the world and can actually handle css.
But yes, it has made leaps and bounds in progress over the versions, so hopefully next version it will be up to pace with the other major browsers.

Yes, I do.

I don't go to ascended to say "ooh what a pretty login screen!" and stare at it for hours. I go to ascended to PLAY the game.

And at least with the "Ugly" login screen I was able to actually LOGIN.

Seriously, there is no need for this, ascended isn't going to ever attract new players to the game, seeing as you have to play main to get there.. and a fancy login page isn't going to keep players there.
