    What really irks me is the reason we were given "we plan on adding more info and we need space for that", more info on what? what more info we could possible need or they could possible add? the game is not THAT deep.

    The only thing that comes to mind is a totem counter but that doesnt justify such HUD changes, they could put it near the gens in the old one and it doesnt explain the awful portraits and the tiny bars.

    Your idea that PC players are the supreme masters of Dead by Daylight, entitled to decide, at their own discretion, what is allowed to be released or not, while the right of the console players to try the new content is just an excuse, is intrinsecally awful: the PTB is intended to collect data about bugs and severely hurting unbalances, which would break the game if they were released in the live version, not more, not less. PC players' tastes about the patch changes are not a good reason to prevent all the other players from trying them and have their direct experience, and Youtube or Twitch streamers don't change the difference between seeing and playing something.

    On the merits, I like very much the new HUD: it introduces some freshness to the layout, give us more options to change its size, and leave more space in the bottom side of the screen, which is the most important. I don't know what will happen in the future, but today the survivors and the stealth killers don't fly in the sky, but crouch on the ground to evade the killer or to ambush the unaware survivor, so a cleaner screen to check better and more quickly the bottom corners is absolutely reasonable.

    In my humble opinion, the real reason behind this kind of riot against BHVR is that they removed the freedom to replace official icons with personal ones, which means they don't let you manipulate the game files, not even for aesthetical purposes. It's not hard to understand why they are not happy if you touch their files: there is a risk of cheating, and they can't check, one by one, all lines of programming on your PC, so they remove your temptation even to try.

    What is a toggle button?


    Why does no one ever do this?

    Signed. Hideous UI and animations.

  • GeneralVGeneralV Member Posts: 7,894

    Indeed, and I am glad it is. We need the Old UI back as soon as possible.

    If anyone believes this.. regarding a UI... I would question their critical thinking skills.

  • jrinkwaterjrinkwater Member Posts: 314

    Because they use the PTB for bug testing. They do not care what the community thinks and they already have the idea THEY want the game to be.

    Signed, please revert the UI (and the terrible animations)

    The idea that a UI needs to use all of its available real estate is so incredibly backwards. Players should spend as little time thinking about the UI as possible so they can focus on the actual game, and having to dart your eyes to every corner of the screen doesn't help. And the argument that they can't revert it is meaningless. Even if you can't just press and Undo button to make things go back, you can still adjust the current system to fix bad decisions. Hell, best case scenario, let players move UI elements around as well as scaling them. Might be a bit more work, but it's not anything unheard of.

    You said the W word, they don't say that word at bhvr. it is black listed and gets you a night outside in a metal box.

  • (I couldn't find my comment after I posted it, so I'll submit it again and try to elaborate my points from earlier. I'll try to be constructive and civil without using any harsh words.)

    I can't say anything good about the new UI. Everything from the awkward character animation to the scattered (and tacky) HUD is just unpleasant. I understand the DEVs worked hard to make these updates, but no one asked for them. All that effort should have gone into making changes that people have actually asked for (ie fixing bugs and gameplay balance issues).

    I know I'm not adding anything new here, and that's kind of the point. Virtually no one likes the new UI, and players are saying so constantly. Therefore, it doesn't make sense to keep it. I'm sure the devs want us to bring in new players and to keep paying for DLCs/cosmetics. The only way to keep the playerbase strong is to give players what they want.

    I've never been all that vocal about the game's problems until now. Honestly, the problems I used to have with the game seem even more minor compared to the current problems with 4.5.0.

    Hey, maybe that's their plan. Maybe the devs got tired of people complaining about the game, and introduced this new UI to prove a point that it could be worse. Just to get people to shut up about MMR and player toxicity.

    If it means going back to the old UI, I'll never say anything bad about DBD again.

    Is that a deal, BHVR?

    Jokes aside, please give us back the old UI. We want it.

    Yes I also don’t believe it. I’m sure they can but they don’t want to. Also, didn’t Not Queen say that they want to wait for console players to try it out and give feedback first?? Now she’s saying it’s not possible??

    The example in this post is just perfect, survivor faces and status effect. I love it.

    Absolutely hate the new UI. That it can't be changed is a blatant lie. If (somehow) the previous data was deleted, it can be redone in the same way that it was changed to this setup. There was no reason for the change. It was not wanted. It was voiced that it was not wanted after the PTB. I'm so frustrated that this game I have played since 2016 is continuing to decline because of the creators rather than the player base. That the creators are killing the game with ridiculous decisions.... Honestly, why do we even have a PTB? Instead of wasting "time and resources" on this, they could have FINALLY made a colorblind mode. But they were too uninterested in it and irritated that it was being asked for so much. A change that was asked for. But because it wasn't their idea it wasn't a priority.

    Please change the UI back. Or give us the option to change it back. Hate the new UI. There's no "more information" that you have to display that could not have been added to the old UI instead of moving everything around.

    Like... a good step is to make the gen counter where the killer power is... instead of up on the screen...
