The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community

Yea, I was thinking of breaking it up with some misc detailing. I'll have to think about it.

And Ace man, drop by irc more often. Easier to discuss these things there  :)

270 pages of editing over the last couple of days, not fun :/

The ingame text? Can't edit that in any way.

Incidentally, when I complained about the interface karajorma decided to take a look at the code. He soon backed away making warding signs  :P

That's cause the parsing code for that particular table is awful. I'll have to take a look at ways to stick it into a different table.
Karajorma's Freespace FAQ. It's almost like asking me yourself.

looks awesome!

Well for the nitpicks, if you want:
- The lighting might be a little severe or maybe its the positioning, but the way it makes the scroll buttons contrast each other is a bit off-putting and maybe draws unwanted attention
- The glossy shinespots on the metal corners around the "campaign" text at the bottom makes it look plastic
- you missed a couple pixels on the right of the description box :D

again, just my nitpicks, totally looks pro

I suggest making a cursor, the FS2 one is... FS2's.

What do you know, it only took a few tracks of M.I.A and a hurting back that kept me home to get things rolling again.

The lighting on the side buttons could use a little tweaking to be more consistent, and the select button could be made a little taller (with the icon portion of it centered) so that the blank space between the text and button matches closer with the space between the 'restart campaign' text and button.

The lightning differences come from HDR reflections and while I agree that they dont quite match, rotating the background that gives the reflections would only create similar problems elsewhere. I just dont want to spend ages tweaking things to perfection, as much as that goes against my base instincts.

As for the select button, here we come to the fun joys of being restricted by the original FS2 interface. I can only move the highlighting part of the button a few pixels to any given direction, so that has to stay in place. Stretching the entire button vertically while leaving the highlighting area intact on the other hand would mean pushing the button frame thingy out of the image. That looks really dumb on the scroll buttons on the side as it is, and I'd like to avoid it if possible.

For the record, I think that whoever was responsible for the interface text placement was really sloppy. The texts are inconsistently placed and never where you'd expected them to be.

Y'know, I concur. Awfully difficult, or easy change?

Changing the text is actually easy, but I prefer it without caps.

There was a time where you can make an in-game menu with LUA. Is it still the case ? I think, with LUA, it will allow you more freedom.
