Reduce 'GO' and other messages, or link to notifications

Postby chucklepie on Tue Feb 28, 2017 7:03 am

Please don't laugh at this suggestion, but after turning off all notifications improved things greatly (like not getting a stupid big 'epic save' filling the screen when I save a goal), I find that the 'GO' message really distracting due to how long it's on screen for.

It says GO, right in the middle of the screen
You race to the ball, it's still in the middle of the screen
You hit the ball, it's still in the middle of the screen
The ball reaches the other goal, or your goal, and it's still there.

filling the centre of the screen where the ball is making it harder to hit. There is no need for it to be there for more than a quarter of a second.

Now you know about it, you'll see it and get annoyed by it like I do, every time ;)

In fact, the minute reminders and the 10 second countdown is equally as annoying, there's no need for 10..........1 filling the middle of the screen, especially when you have notifications turned off. A beep and a brief flash of '30 seconds', '10 seconds' would be sufficient

I honestly hardly see it anymore. I just look right through it. I had a rumble compilation with a dozen clips, and in 1 of them it showed 1 minute remaining. Which I wanted to use 1 minute before the end of the video. I looked at that clip 4 times before I saw it.
The more you focus on it, the more you keep seeing it.

Or at least let us move it away from the centre.

An option to hide the pointless commentary text (top-right) would also be good.

I don't notice it much anymore but every once in a while it gets in the way and it can be hard to see. Something small could be done about it. Like Skaldy said, just move it a little.

You can minimize the impact this has on you by going into your settings and reducing the scale of the UI.
I'M OUT. The decision to remove Neo Tokyo (and all the implications that holds for the future of this game) and start putting new cars inside crates... NOPE. See you somewhere else.

Really, i didn't think scaling affected the messages. Either way, a brief display is all you need, no need for it to linger that long. Would take them seconds to do.

but a new location would be nice, especially for the dialog box because when you want to adjust your camera settings you cannot see your car when the UI scale is normal.

I know that's technically true, but since it affects all UI Sizes it's horrible to do so :lol:

I changed my UI scale. And those notification messages are still annoying as hell. Especially for the last 30 seconds notification, and you're concentrated in the air really hard to get the angle you want since there are defenders in the way and an oncoming challenger of the ball. For a split second, it's like the game trolls you to miss your shot.

Not just those situations, there's also when challenging a dribbling player, or any quick events that need quick processing of info.

bumping this as I still find the "ONE MINUTE REMAINING!" and "30 SECONDS REMAINING!" messages really annoying :)

I scaled UI way down..I can't even make out pictures of other players lol Works great for me

But I agree 100%...I would rather not have to do that.
