Nice idea mate, I think something like that would improve soldat somewhat.

Awesome, love it! I'm not a fan of kick/ban menu though, I think instead of having to switch pages left/right there should be a vertical scrollbar instead.

The vertical scrollbar is perfect but more difficult to develop, or not?

What I've always found bothering to be missing is ingame access to controls/player/server menu, you can't configurate your settings without quitting a match.

Good! I'll draw something about this but I don't know if it's possible to develop without a lot of work(as a year to build).

Another suggestion: Pressing ESC will automatically hide all elements(messages, FPS, kill log, interface...) This could give us space to create new and better menu interfaces.

great!

I have a few suggestions:
how about spectatot button with double height?
maybe highlight current open submenu item in esc menu?
scrollbar could be grey not white (doesnt need all the attention)
ESC - return to game why not [ESC]
Make all numbers 75% transparent (the [1] etc) so you focus reading the actual text
Add ... to options which open another window/popup
soldat 1.6.6 menu text is a bit small maybe

things to consider:
w+s for selecting menu item
a+d for choosing canceling item
generally allsow keyboad usage (scrolling, kick/ban without using mouse)

What do you use to edit the images?
Could you also upload the project files with layers (and what fonts you used)

+ it would be nice if after pressing Esc, cursor would be automatically positioned in center of this menu(or screen). Sometimes when you have play in high-res or you use different cursor it pain in the a$$ to find it when you push Esc.

Some thoughts:

-Shouldn't it say Alpha Team and Bravo Team?
-I don't think I like the colours above the menues on the second picture. Keep it simple imo
Not even sure I like the coloring of each player.
-Is it necessary to have the ''Select team'' headline? You could instead move ''[ESC] Return to game'' to the top.
-I hope the screen will not move so you don't have to chace the buttons any more :)

- ofc, its just an example.
- the player's name coloring it's the current scheme
- yeah, you're probably right about the "select team" and "[esc]..."!
- hahahhaha for sure! it's terrible and the same with the weapon menu! I'm playing with 1080p and getting mad all the time chasing the menus!

I don't have Photoshop, if I do gfx or mockup stuff i use GIMP, MyPain, Krita, Paint.NET/Pinta or The Pencil Project.
I can import the psd in Krita but the text cannot be edited.
What font did you use for the text (also font size)?

More feedback:
[ESC] should be darkened
[1] [2] ect could be even darker
The colored line above menues was a nice idea it might work if it was very light colored (like the background of the popup) as the windows cannot be moved it's not really necessary
I prefer to only show one window at a time not (so you only focus on one thing at a time (easier controls for keyboard etc)
I don't think the [BAN] [KICK] text should be in [] as that is reserved for hotkeys

gj so far

GIMP support photoshop files :]
just open as new file or edit using GIMP

about topic: forget about ban/kick menu its not like everyone use it every 5min. its should be as a menu button just to not encourage trolls to kick everyone.

There should be map list. ofc most of use just when vote map, chose standard ones so its nothing hard to type /votemap but this would be nice if we could have map list cataloged in 2 columns with 4/6 map rows and on the bottom buttons << and >>

Because currently finding map is pain in the A$$

Ok, here's the font:

I think there is a need for more mockups.

For example how would it look like for TDM with 4 teams and spectator?
How does a hovered menu item look like?
How does a selected menu item look like?
How do the vote/kick menu look on 640x480?

Since there are now more mockups they all should work and look similar.
On the F1 Menu (score menu) there are no scrollbars (page up/down is used to scroll).
[1] [Ban] etc do we need the []? There are no [] in the other mockups (maybe make them look like buttons with dark text and colored background instead)

I would also make the text about the player count larger.

You could try with less saturated colors, because(for me) they are just to... punchy for soldat.

However, I'm on Akinaro's side regarding the colours. A bit less saturated would be better IMHO.
Apart from that, great job. Would be great to see this introduced with 171.

A bit more saturated and a punchy color for the selected team. Sounds a good solution whereas (the right word? :/) Shza asked me about an effect for the selected team.

Eh, I actually like "punchy" saturated colors for that kind of thing. Reminds me of older shooters like Quake and Unreal Tournament. It's also more consistent with team colors on other UI elements and on soldiers.

IMO you should make "# players" test juxt a bit bigger and maybe brighter too. It's a bit difficult to read on smaller resolutions, and this isn't even 640x480.

Selected team could be shown like this:
