How's about an option to hang up a personal call ( we use to have it ), also how's about an option to see any notifications we've missed ( eg, been invited to personal chat but missed the invite ), again we use to have this.
(edit ).. Ok found these options, talk about hidden o_0
I like the new menu layout think it looks good and the ability to move companions into storage is very handy. But the one thing i do not like is this 'you have targeted an active item box' it is very in your face and covers part of the chat log. Who's idea was this and how the hell did it get past testing? This isnt for new users as i have been using home for 4 years and have been on there several times since the update went live.
Can we please either shrink it or remove it as it is not needed at all. Why add it in the first place i mean honestly it makes no sense :| especially when you have a big group of friends you are talking to it will always be there taking up a good chunk of the screen and it just looks bad. Can we have someone take a look at it please?
As Jester and others have said...the "You have targeted an active item" box is annoying. It tends to cover a portion of the chat log, so if you are chatting with people, you need to keep moving away to read the log.
Needs to fixed....like...soon.
Ok, I take it back; those info bars are EXTREMELY annoying! Seems to me some executive honcho wants it in as his/her idea regardless of honest advice. Either that orthe Home dev team have lost the plot...
Its very intrusive isn't it? It actually covers part of the chat log and takes up a good portion of the bottom of the screen. As I said earlier I don't know why they implemented it, or how on earth it passed the testing phase. Wouldn't a beta tester at least say "Look this is unneeded" or 'its in the way of the chat log?' that's even if they got a look at it before Sony uploaded it.
This reminds me of the time they removed the colour from the chat logs. That was an idiotic decision but our voices were heard and we got the original colour log back. So if all goes well we will get it shrunk to an extent or removed hopefully
I don't mind the new look, It took a little while to get used to but it's simple enough.
I like that when you bring up the menu the screen is transparant so you can still see whats going on around you - and you can still rotate the camera as well!
The 'you have targeted' popup also has NOT went away for me( im not a new user and used home several times last night. Dont have a problem with it as it doesnt bother me. But just noticed a post saying it was for new users and will go away.
It's gone off for me. The only thing it pops up on now is the Cogs game nothing else.
It's meant to learn new users what it is they've targeted, it was introduced 2 core updates ago. It's not really sopposed to be active to users that have been on Home for ages.
Overall I like the changes brought in with 1.65 and think they are a distinct improvement. However the changes to bowling and pool are so drastic I imagine quite a few people will be somewhat miffed.
The alterations to the controls and the in-game physics are so different we'll basically have to relearn from scratch. I don't mind so much with the bowling because it seems more true to life now, but the pool is a bit of a nightmare, and feels like a step backwards rather than a refinement of the game.
