New Kongregate Version: Profile and game page fixes

29 posts

Flag Post

For users, we’ve fixed the alignment issues with avatars and shout replies on the messages pages. We’ve also update some places on the game page too. First off, the below the game favorites icon will launch the signup lightbox for guests, we’ve also fixed an issue with user hover profiles in game comment pages.

For devs, there was an issue where opening comments in the game title would break game page functionality so we fixed that.

You can read more about these changes below or in our change logs here.

You changed the kerning of the text in the tab descriptions. I cannot unsee it now ;~;

First thing I noticed as well, I refreshed the page and saw it immediately.

As did I. I like the way it looks now though.

Actually, I just realized that I have a tab open with it the way it used to look. There’s a huge difference between the two. It’s a different font, kerning, and weight if I am correct.

I like it.

[Edit: my sent messages are misaligned now.]

oh my god those tabs are horrible.

fix that kerning so its not terrible.

Or, if you want to continue to make bad font choices, make the default font of Kongregate comic sans

If you want to be pedantic (as I do), what they changed is the tracking. Kerning refers to adjusting the space between particular pairs of letters (making V and A closer together, for example), but if you’re increasing or decreasing the space between all the letters, that’s tracking.

Thanks for letting us know. I’ll bug the alignment issue with our devs now.

Look at ACHIEVEMENTS

Notice how the H and I are closer than the I and E

This is terrible kerning because the letters arent the same distance apart.

The ‘Games’ Tab is now sitting on top of the last ‘E’ in ‘Kongregate’

I also noticed what MadJedi noticed before even coming here.

Hmm… That might be based on screen size/resolution. For me, it looks fine.

Not for me.

I can’t seem to reproduce the overlapping issue some of you are seeing. This is what I get when I change my browser width:

Can you guys maybe post screen shots and what pages you guys are seeing the overlapping on?

All pages.

All pages.

To ask the obvious, is your browser at regular 100% zoom?

It is. I just checked and reset it anyway. No difference.

Can you tell me what resolution you’re screen is on? Also what browser and OS you’re on?

His Windows DPI setting is probably different. Also, it looks like ClearType font smoothing isn’t on.

YOU CAN CHANGE STUFF!

Okay, we got wider kernel bars. That’s cool I guess

But I’m still bothered by that red space between my profile bar and kernel bars, particularly now that kernel bar is wider than profile bar (the rectangle where my avatar is for instance)

1024 by 768 pixels, Firefox 20.0 is the only browser out of that, IE, and Chrome that has this issue, and XP.

DPI is ‘Normal size (96 DPI)’ and turning on ClearType made everything blurry.


Edit: This really isn’t that big of a deal if this is only me, which appears to be.
