TMUF = Bloatware

Post by nikola_j » 20 Apr 2008 18:06

I've been playing TMUF for the last few days hoping to get used to it.

The conclusion I reach is that I prefer plain TMU,
It ran better,
the menu system was clearer (why colours in stead of terrains)
When I download a track (in TMUF) it doesn't show who has raced it previously.
When I set an official time (in TMUF) I have to wait for hours before it is recorded to see how I've done in comparison to other racers

The menu bug is a real pisser, TMUF will only handle 30 tracks per colour, if you want more than that, you have to delete one to create a space.

If it ain't broken don't fix it (or if you do make sure it's better)

TMUF should run a bit better actually, as it's been optimized some more.
I switched computers at the same time, so I can't judge.
I (and I think most) prefer the new menu, it's easier to use, easier to find everything.
Others will surely correct me if I'm wrong, but TMU->TMUF was a good change.
You are of course entitled to your opinion, but I'm pretty sure you are a minority.

Also you never said why you think TMUF is bloatware, which you mentioned in the subject. :)

The menu is much nicer in TMUF.
Although I prefer the old look (slightly), the new one is much more nicely laid out and easier to use. Additionally, it's now possible to navigate the menus with a joypad without going mad.

I preferred the old menus myself, these seem slower and more bulky and the fact you can't read most of th bloody server names online is irritating as hell. It was certainly faster to find the stuff I wanted. Really if it's not broke don't fix it is the mantra the menu designers should have adopted IMO.
