UI sliders are clumsy

YS1 3 years ago • updated by Lee "Noontide" Moon (Designer & Community Manager) 3 years ago 4

Some option values are controlled by sliders in the options UI.

It is really painful to use them to set the options to a precise value, as it does not seem possible to adjust with the mouse wheel but only by dragging the slider, and the selected value is not updated as the slider slides, so one has to guess.

This problem is worse concerning the slider to control UI zoom, as changes made to it are taken into account immediately, which changes the size of the slider itself and further complicates the try-and-guess one has to do.

I'd be inclined to agree with you on that. There may be some limitations on what we can do in a reasonable time frame regarding this but at the very least I'll pass it on through to our internal tracker. It'll be on a lower priority to fix especially if it requires major rewrites.

Hello YS1,
We made now sure the numbers update in real time when you drag sliders.
(It was using onchange and not oninupt event)
However the change will only be applied and serialized to the persistent settings when the slider is released/drag stops to avoid lag.

And yes it is true that you can not tweak slider with mouse wheel (they are standard html5 range inputs).
But you can use arrow keys to achieve the same one the slider has focus.

Unfortunately there is no easy fix for the issue when you adjust UI Scale while in game,
however with the other improvement it should be yet a bit more convenient.

Cheers
