I'm having an issue seeing the settings menu icon and faction icons in ladder search since the last update. As far as I can tell the faction icons are there and are clickable (mouse icon changes) but I have no idea what's selected and what isn't. Was previously using Downlords client on the same PC without issue. Have tried a fresh install of the client to no avail.

Any ideas how to fix? See attached screenshot.

I have had a recurring issue with the client since the beginning. I have my FAF lobby windowed, and upon launching the game, the lobby disappears and I have to manually click on the FA icon in the dash in order to switch to it. In other words, FA is being launched in a hidden state instead of the java client raising the new FA window and giving it focus.

I'm on Ubuntu. Thanks!

please change the games list on "play" tab to look exactly like old version.

Problem with new version:
- title is crunched over multiple lines needlessly
- map icon photo has lame gradient over it so I can't actually see the map clearly

The change is actually so bad I can barely look at the screen because of these gradients over the maps and titles on two lines...

The ability to see the rating change for eachgame would be nice, as the old replay vault allowed.

Go to replay vault, find replay, click, - > show ratings

Huh, where did it show that in the old client? It's definitely there in downlords client though.

Here some feedback points by me:

1.) Please remove the name "Downlord" in the name of the lobby. I get that he deserves credit, but to have it in the name is too much if you ask me.
This will be the official client now, it looks unprofessional to have someone's nickname in it.

2.) Please provide multiple backgrounds, and/or themes. There got to be better images than this SupCom 2 mod picture. Or give the ability to customize the client by users them self. Right now the client is too dark.

3.) Local replays were more easy to find with the Python client. Just place the newest one on top of the list.

4.) In the python client I had the feeling I had a better view on what was happening, I think this is due the ui elements being larger in the new client. It would help a lot when there is scaling button in the find games tab, to increase and decrease the size of hosted games.

5.) Sometimes the client uses full resource of my CPU. 100% cpu usage.

6.) It would be great if your last search criteria would be stored.

7.) I prefer to have the tabs on the bottom of the screen. Please provide the option.

8.) Not important for the transition, but I think it would be nice if there was a "video" tab in the client. Here all a tutorial series could be places as well as a home for the different casters.
