Hi all I haven't been around much lately, been busy with uni and all that junk. I got a fright when I typed gamedev.net into the browser and had a 404 error, but turns out my connection just died =P ANYWAY Some of you may remember a while back when I found the table top game I started writing like 7 years ago on an old harddrive. At the time I decided to just throw it onto a wiki page where it actually gained a bit of attention, so recently I moved it over to its own website. I was hoping some of you keen eyed critics could take a quick look at the website and let me know how it looks aesthetic wise, wether the text is easy on the eyes, if the colours are all ok and so on. One thing I'm a tad worried about is the black links on the left nav bar. Any feedback would be great. Thank all [smile]

True and whilst thinking about that think about this, there doesn't seem to be any consistency with your links.
Yellow ,rollover underline.
grey, rollover yellow.
black, rollover underline.
dark red background, rollover light red.

True. I was trying to avoid too many light colours on the front page, but yeah it might end up being worse in the end anyway.

I'll start switching the links to a more universal colour.

You may want to use the yellowish color from the right on the links on the left. It's really hard to read imho (granted, I don't have perfect eyesight). I don't like the background colors either, but they are consistent and they fit the yellow text well.

Those links on the left are tricky. Black is just a bit too hard to see, but anything lighter actually gets harder to read up until the very light text makes the page look too colourful.

I've tried playing around with a bunch of colours but I can’t quite get one that works [sad]

Using Opera (9 Beta) there's a little problem on this page
http://www.kry-gothic.com/default.asp?C=About&L=ovr

The menu on the left (Kry-Gothic Main etc...) isn't under the link for Develop, but is moved down at the end of the page.
Maybe if you fix the error problems shown in the W3C validator it will be ok in every browser (no problems with Firefox :)

And last, good work i like it :)

I tried the page in validator.w3.org and it found over 50 'errors'
Might be good to check them out, something nasty can be lurking...


ACK! Thanks for reminding me! I completely forgot to run that >_<

mmmm, I have version 8.54 of Opera and it appears ok for me. If you have time, would you mind uploading a screenshot? But like you said, chances are the abundance of validation errors has something to do with it [grin]

Well I ran the w3 validator and the good news is 90% of the errors are just the asp links throwing the test off (‘default.asp?X=Y’ is counted as an error)

In regards to the links on the left, I've changed them to a more flat colour which the rest of the links use. It's on the live version, so if it looks really bad please let me know [grin] (I'm worried it's a bit TOO bright now).

The help so far is very much appreciated [smile]

The top is extreemly vivid
the left menu is dark/blended
and the rest seems very "styled"

its almost as though you are using 3 themes for the site, each one
in itself is pulled off fairly well, but they clash when working together.
Personaly, I would like to see a bit more vivid of a design, make
the links of the left more bright and sketchy, and do the same with the middle,
or stylize the site to be more like the middle portion.
