H2yellow bold:




And about headlines, I didn't really understood about where in the page exactly you was talking about...
But using theses very fancy letters would be great!! Smile


About the part with this bg:
It will be only for the "tavern menu"? if yes I will delete background and borders, of course. Smile

I meant these parts. Currently we are lacking them.



P.S. Yellow in bold looks better.

You should not delete the borders I think. But I think you should add brown borders instead like you did with other windows Smile
...or not? Maybe we should check the tavern with the current thin borders?

Sok so, it's bold H2yellow or...let's put titles like in the original game: ?


Even if I like to see one title like that, al lthe titles on the pages in this style, I think it will be "too much"... And it will remove the "special" feeling we have about theses letters.. Sad

Also, I think putting the tavern without borders is better than the brown border. I agree the brown border would match the tavern but... all the page is already "browned".
But anyway, I will try both, taking 2 screenshots, and comparing here. Smile

Alright, you can put aside the gold letters for now and proceed with original ModDB font - perhaps we can at least experiment with the font family - there are some other fonts to use. But I would still like to have a somewhat red background for the Yellow headlines, similar to what we have on the Roland's Campaign image you posted.

I just checked, and was editing my post, but you replied too fast. xD

We can't replace titles by differents images. We can put a bg image but not replacing the text. (then bg image will be same for all theses titles).

mah.. Anyway, you want more design for theses titles, all right! Smile
I will manage something H2ish. Wink

Better than screenshots, I putted online the whole page as I managed to transform it, for the moment:

http://homm2.free.fr/s/vrac/h3sw/h3sw-cssing4.html ~ bg of titles is with roland-bg.png
http://homm2.free.fr/s/vrac/h3sw/h3sw-cssing4b.html ~ bg of titles is with rgba(256,0,0,0.4)

I didn't remove the "sorceress town" and the description from the page. If you want I will do it. Smile

An amazing progress! I really enjoyed the second variant of the font headers (rgba). It seems that the yellow letters fit better to the brighter red background. It looks a bit H1-ish, but in terms of graphical beauty and designer solution it looks better. It is good that you included this variant.

Yes, you can delete the Sorceress artwork along with the text description about the Peasants and those 4 buttons completely. That was an old variant of the menu. After some update of ModDB the background got broken and some code too.

Positive moral   Now the only font problem left is the grey font of clickable areas (Contact, Official Page, Track this mod, etc.). It's barely visible on our new brown background. I think we should both make the font brighter and reconsider the background. You know, the current brown background has a problem because it has a clear pattern which causes difficulties with reading the classic ModDB font. The classic ModDB font has no anti-aliasing and doesn't have multi-colored texture like original H2 font had, so it looks a bit lost on the current background.

A viable option would be to add this darkened section (in the center) to the background for all text area, and place it over all background (see the right side of the image - the darkened background contacts with the frame). It doesn't have a pattern and it is darker, so the fonts should look perfect on it. You can also take a good texture of the red banner for (roland.png) you mentioned.




 Positive moral  Next, we should mention the big active text (see Latest Downloads). Currently "Succession Wars Mod Beta from January, 9th, 2013" is black so it's barely able to be discerned. I suggest white or gold colors for this title. By the way, are you able to add the new buttons for "+" and "RSS feed" (see the upper right corners of many windows)? We could design a Good-style interface buttons for them if possible. I see you already put H2-styled buttons for "Previous" and "Next" buttons. I would suggest to make the text on them bold to look how they would be discernible on their beige background.

Positive moral The Tavern you developed should be also placed in a frame just like all other windows are Smile Same for the panel with the "Heroes of Might and Magic III: The Succession Wars" text. I am not yet sure how to unite them properly though. The panel with "Heroes of Might and Magic III: The Succession Wars" text also has a placeholder background, we will need to think about something else for it.


Positive moral Also, we should think something about the main ModDB menu (mods, downloads, features, news, etc.). The beige background doesn't fit good for both black and white font. Perhaps we need something else.


Positive moral Finally, the current project logo (which is not official) is too large and perhaps it's not needed at all. We will have the project logo on the Tavern picture, where currently you can see "Heroes II of Might and Magic" on the banner.

It was me who gave GodRage the project logo and it looks quite bad when blown up and I completely agree that the banner in the Tavern is enough Smile

I think did all you said (except border around tavern-menu), and a little more; better to get a look:  King

Amazing solution with the upper menu! Positive moral

I will comment on other aspects later in Sunday Smile
I guess I must help you with the rest of the graphics.

Thanks for your reactions!! :-)

I changed something in the title (bottom of the tavern), with a big H like official titles. Smile

If I understood well, moddb.com will close.
The "work" I did in this topic can be easily put on any other page... on H3SW website, or so. Smile

Are you sure? It looks like GameFront is going to be closed, not Moddb. Moddb users are trying to rescue content uploaded on this page.

Oh, then it's my mistake
I thought moddb was a part of GameFront, and so closing all the sub-services at once. But if you say so, then no problem..
