About time, i always hated the toolbar at the top was too intrusive, be nice to finally de-clutter the interface.

I am probably more excited about the UI layout than the limited Legacy options for most players.

100% agree. The UI customization seems pretty complete, so long as I can add a 3rd horizontal task bar :)

Yep. This is top of my drool list for 1.2. I was also really excited for the Ship's Droid mini game, until I realised...

It's the embed link that BW sends them. Massively has to post it (basically), so if you get upset with anyone, get upset with BW for being annoying.

@Joaquin Crowe Yes, autoplay videos suck.

Edgecrusher is right, basically since it's an embedded video from a custom player made by BioWare, it's their fault it autoplays.

Basically, whoever designed the video player that they use is completely incompetent. Designing and implementing video players is one of the easiest things one can do since all it is is a collection of buttons with very very small amounts of script associated with the movie player. Typically a movie player of this complexity would be about 2 or 3 hundred lines of code and would take about a day to make. For them to fix the player it would take about 15 min. and about 10 lines of code. That's to also fix the non-functioning "fullscreen" button that doesn't bring you out of full screen when clicked again.

They could use the youtube links like DarthHater does. Youtube doesn't do auto-play on embeds.

I remember the days when trolls at least took pride in their trolling by spelling properly.

Now they just rage first, then pound keys and hit 'Enter'... /sigh

@real65rcncom I know. Trolling is a lost art. This seemed more like a shoddy drive-by troll.

No colour themes? I don't play the game, so I don't know if different colours are offered for the UI theme, but I can say that different colour themes were really popular in SWG. I was always amazed to see screenshots from people who used the colours that I thought were awful, but hey I guess they didn't like the themes that I happened to like! :)

That said, they've taken a page from Everquest II's UI customization design and that's a good thing, because it's easy to use. Local XML file storage is great too, so I see that being very helpful for people who play the game.

I think the UI in-game currently has an option to change color schemes? I have to re-check. There are only 3-4 colors (Blue, Gold, Green, and ?).

Not enough to bring me back, but a nice addition for those still playing.

The turtle neck is so awesome but he should have had a pipe in his mouth as well like Freud. 1.2 is a pretty hefty update. I can't wait for the UI changes.
