DIS2RBED Preview mini review

Recommended Posts

Okay, so the menu is officially in preview now, and as such people are getting to grips with the new layout (unless you were a tester😉). I have a lot of positives to say about this menu, and I'll list them out here.

1) Options are VERY stable and seem to be very well tested, everything is very well labelled and the locales seem to be perfect.

2) There are a surprisingly impressive amount of options available in preview, pretty much everything that's needed for modders.

3) Protex seem to be working very well, I haven't been crashed or desync kicked once since I started using it. This is a big improvement.

And now, here are some constructive criticisms.

1) I expected for the car mods section to be released on release of the menu, this is an option that a lot of us I'd imagine we want.

2) The way the menu works can be confusing if you're new to menus, it would be good to have a screen overlay in-game when the menu loads up. Similarly to Impulse, there could be a message notification or banner saying something like "Welcome to DIS2RBED. Press F4 to open."

3) Certain options can't be disabled (seemingly), such as the info panel in the bottom right and the console log. It would be great to have a little more customisation, such as hiding UI elements, changing the length of displayed options and more.

Please don't take this the wrong way, I am a very, VERY long standing user of DIS1RBED and DIS2RBED and I have nothing but appreciation for the staff, devs and the rest of the community.

Greatly appreciate your feedback, when it comes to criticisms we're always open to them as long as they're constructive and polite, just like you did so thanks for that.

I'll try to answer to your points from my current knowledge of the menu development status and a few messages sent by Antrix in the russian channel on Discord, that many users may miss due to obvious reasons; don't take everything as said, many things may be subject to changes during the next preview updates.

1) The car mods section (formerly LSC Portable) is expected to have a huge restyle from what it was in D1, with improved features and so on, that's why it still needs a bit of work on it.

2) I'm fairly sure that menu-overlays (like a Welcome message once the injection is successful) will be integrated on the final release, or possibly in a future update of the preview version.

3) Console log will be integrated in the W1TCH Launcher itself, that update has already been sent to the testers.
As for changing the lenght of displayed options, the menu lenght is fixed due to the existence of custom images for custom themes (which have a fixed size, and adding more options to the menu would mean increased lenght and having to force stretch the custom image, resulting into a mess)

Hopefully I cleared up some points, remember that this is just the 1st preview version, a LOT of things are subject to changes and improvements!

Thanks again for your precious feedback!

Does it matter whether you're tabbed out of the game or not? (like in terms of protection effectiveness)

Someone tried to crash me yesterday and while most of his crashes were blocked, I crashed when I tabbed out to look at the log (showing his crash events, since I don't believe they show up in-game yet?).

The protex is good indeed. However I noticed that we cant crash other in this preview version. Will it be added in the future?

More than likely.

They do not show up in game. Pause on focus loss? it's not recommended to tab out, sometimes it can cause crashes but shouldn't of.

I just thought it would be good to be able to express some of the best parts of the menu, as well as address some questions constructively instead of being like "WhErE iS rEcOvErY"
