I'd like to say that I also miss the "Who Else is Here" section - I met a lot of other players by seeing them there, and it makes the world feel a lot more populated.



I've just noticed that also the 'suggest a contact' button at the 'send a calling card' is gone. It may have been less popular than 'who else is here', but now both options for meeting a random, active player are gone. I want at least one of the options back.

For the rest of the design I think they are doing a good job at Failbetter Games. I have participated in the 2nd closed beta wave and seeing the improvements from that point makes me confident that they have read and considered all feedback up to now. For playing on my small smartphone the site is already an improvement to Storynexus. If those d___ed performance issues are solved, I would be content with making the switch on my laptop too.

Im not sure if it is the right place to ask, but.
I really like the new design, and i'd like to download all the headers and the map. the latter is done, but is there the map without icons of locations? looked through the HTML-code, nothing is there. Help?
Here's a rather large version, which is conveniently wallpaper-ish sized.

Thank you very much!

I like the faster responsiveness. The lost of mouseover is a step backwards for desktop use and eats up most of the delicious snappiness of the new interface. Before I could quickly mouse over a card to see what it is (zero clicks), and play the card with a single click. Now distinguishing between visually similar cards takes a click, and playing the card takes two clicks (and a drag of the mouse to a button in a different area of the screen). This behaviour clearly has advantages for touch devices that don't mouseover, but could we bring back (or have an option for) the old behaviour on desktop browsers?

    Hm. Mouseovers are working just fine for me. Maybe expand your browser window?

    The browser size detection is a little wonky. Browsing FL on my desktop PC (screen 1920 x 1050) shows card mouseovers as normal, whereas browsing FL on my laptop (screen 1366 x 768), even with a max-sized browser, gives the same issue as johncmd - doesn't show mouseovers and I have to click on the card for them to pop up. I'm not sure whether this can be resolved on my end, since my browser is at max size and all other websites show normally on my laptop, so I'm just living with it.

    Probably worth filing a bug report, though.

    FFS, why isn't there an option to use the old design?

    One good thing about the map and the tiny location circles -- plenty of room for new places! Maybe we'll get some...
    Incidentally, I don't know about anyone else, but my Lodgings look as if they're somewhere near Shoreditch or even Aldgate. Seriously?

    I just played A Polite Invitation on my smartphone and... I am not doing that again. I did not mind the separation between Always and Sometimes before, but in cases like that, when you have both options and cards, it was awful.
