Around a year or so ago, I posted a bunch of reference screens captured from various fighting games, to help streamers plan their UI against the actual game without needing to hook up a capture device or to search for images on Google.
It struck me today that putting that here was probably not the easiest thing to find, or the easiest thing for people to use in their projects, so today, I moved the whole thing over to GitHub as a new repository:
Contributions are welcome, and requests for screens should be filed as issues. I hope these are useful to you in your stream production.
When I am playing Street Fighter V and I am trying to get placed into a ranked match, and while trying to sync up with my matchmade opponent I get this:
Do not take me here:
I NEVER WANT TO GO THERE.

And put me in the hopper for another match.
Someone who is kind of tired of suffering through bizarre UI decisions
Usability suffers when users type in passwords and the only feedback they get is a row of bullets. Typically, masking passwords doesn’t even increase security, but it does cost you business due to login failures.
It’s time to show most passwords in clear text as users type them.
This is an interesting challenge of the status quo, and the more I think about it the more I agree with the idea.
I love the unintentional humor of this dialog. Can you spot what’s wrong here?
The full version of RDC has been out for something like four or six months. I refuse to upgrade to it simply so I can see this dialog every few days and get a laugh out of it.
