Colorblind options for mobs and minimap


19 posts in this topic

Posted

Hello, all I need to ask is that a colorblind mode can be put in for the mobs and the minimap, specifically the mobs.

I played in CBT2 and I found I had a huge problem telling how difficult the mobs would be because there were no levels next to their name, my friend told me instead they had colored nameplates. This is a big pain for me because I have Deuteranopia and it makes it hard for me to tell certain shades of color apart. the only time I saw a difference was between the gray and the purple. It makes it hard for me to tell if I can take it on in groups or if I have to single it out first. This only really affected me when picking mobs to fight and only a little bit with the minimap. All I ask is that you add something to help those like me tell the difference in the strength of mobs, something as simple as an arrow up or down. Something like an ( ^ ) to say a creature is only a few levels higher than you, ( ^^ ) to tell the mobs is much higher than you, and ( ^^^ ) to tell that a creatures significantly higher than you. Using down arrows in the same manner for creatures lower than you. Something as simple as this would be a great deal of help to me.

Thank you so much for making an epic game and allowing me to play it. Good luck and thanks for your consideration.

I'm also color blind and find it very difficult to distinguish colors for the minimap, mob conning, item quality, etc.  Color blind modes would be very much appreciated as we really are handicapped in this game.  Even red names for rogue PKers is something we cannot see.

I am colorblind, and have difficulty telling mob levels.  Please put a number option in mob names, we can turn in on ourselves in the settings menu.

+1, understandable and pretty much required for a game as different combat-wise as BDO.

Definitely +1 on the color blind issues. The game is currently terrible for those with colorblindness. From the horrible captcha on the marketplace, the colors on the fishing minigame to the very subtle differences between the red and orange dots on the minimap and the red mob names, it's just bad. Please add the ability to customize the colors used in the interface.

+1 For this as well.  Red/Green Colorblindness affects a very significant percentage of males with European heritage.  In other words, a large fraction of the player base for the EU/NA servers.  The red is very hard to see in many cases and a colorblind option would be a very welcome addition.

I assume you guys already tried messing with the photofilter in the setting?, that one was supposed to help colorblinds DAUM said in a Q&Am no idea if it really does as I am not colorblind, and if it don't then yeah something definitely need to be done about it

I also had huge problem on finding members of my party on the map :S 

That is not a problem for colorblind ppl only, almost impossible even with normal colorvision that is just retarded choice of icon/color

Colorblind modes these days can be implemented with simple 3D LUTs, or even just a simple matrix transform of the final output color, so there's no reason not to include colorblind modeS. That's right, multiple modes! Because there's lots of different types of colorblindness!
