Hello Tim,
Welcome to the project! :-)

If you need to use some bitmap instead of vector, take a look at:


and see how they are colored inside the game. I think graphic for the
HUD could be designed the same way.

Yes, a lot of the maps uses the 4:3 aspect ratio ... but the monitors
aspect ratio is either a 4:3 or widescreen. Of course, we could assume
that the most average situation is a 4:3 map on a widescreen monitor,
and the HUD could be designed with this in mind. Sorry if I make
things more confusing.

Something entirely different: personly I won't have much time to chat
or look at the network status while playing a fast game like LW, but I
would really like it at the score screen. Maybe we should keep the HUD
at the score screen, so that it still have those features?

I like the LW5 score screen too. I'm curious at what you will come up with!

Hey, if you need some hand-drawn graphic for the score screen but
won't bother with it yourself, I could create it. ( my LW6 levels
shows my drawing style)
