1) Thank you
2) Lol'd @ "Menu got back!"
3) I love taking the extra time to enjoy myself
4) I'm pretty sure I've posted my menu class on this site before
5) Thanks for the hats but I'm full (not a fan of hats anyways)
6) Care to post a more constructive opinion regarding the tree?

Here is somewhat what I was aiming for:
Posted Image Posted Image

I'm leaning towards having an "Advanced Options" menu within the actual Options menu.
The advanced options menu would contain such things as:
- Current Snake being edited
- Total Snakes in the game (good/bad? Makes it too much of a hassle perhaps?)
- Default game boards (you get to cycle through a list that's displayed to you!) :)
- Save a game board (only ones that match with the proper players are displayed)
- Load a game board (only ones that match with the proper players are displayed)
EG: A saved map with x2 players will only display when Total Snakes is x2

Again, any ideas are welcomed.

I like the options but I don't think that the player should be able to change the board imensions I don't know I see it as something I would mess around with once and then forget about it and never use it again

The player controls you should keep. I hate it when a game makes you use the arrow keys when you want to use wasd or vise versa

I don't know what snake editing does so yea.

and having more than one player sounds like a pretty cool twist I don;t think I've ever played a snake game with two players

I'm sorry. "Snake editing: 1" means you're editing the first player (Snake #1). I should rename it...?

I was planning on having a preset array of "Default" box placements for X players, and allow you to create/save your own (you can delete but not modify the default "layouts" for board dimensions) boards.

I can have as many Snakes as I want in this version of Snake (I will have a "Classic" and an "Arcade" mode soon enough, when I fix the rest of the small kinks (bugs)), although I capped it at 8 (options!) because I believe you cannot fit more than 8 people on a keyboard at a time... I think the most I (when I was a kid) was able to fit on a keyboard was x4 'teens and a 8 year old. But that was cramped and so hilarious. :)

Thank you very! Much for the opinions, quite helpful. And about the arrow keys, I know, it's why I put it there. :P

Does this "Logo" or "Splash" screen (whatever you want to call it) look OK?

Thanks (whom-ever).

I bet you do! ;) ...ahem, anyway

Looking very awesome indeed :^:
Can't think of any improvements right now but I'll look at this post again tomorrow and see if I can think of anything then :)

One thing though - 8 people on one keyboard, how big is your keyboard? :P I'd say 4 people max, 3 where the letters are and 1 on the numpad.

A standard (American) Keyboard.

WSAD, TGFH, IJKL, P:"{, UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT keys, and "numpad" (the numbers, not the arrows)

That is: 6 people on a SINGLE keyboard, excluding the other (physically possible) people crunching scrunching key combos (for only four directional movements).

Thank you, hawkysu.

Oh and Robb, I have since then added onto the menus, along with the logo. :)
Hope you come up with some ideas! <3
