What's the matter with the square one, I seems to keep mis-clicking the D-Pad and either going to the wrong direction or my hero isn't moving at all because I am touching outside the D-Pad. Maybe I have become so used to the circle one that often times, I can move without even looking where the D-Pad is.
Another problem is that, I always put D-Pad on the lower right corner, which, as you know, it is overlapping will overlap with the icons for any actor conditions affecting my hero. With the round D-pad, I can still see the actor conditions' icons. However, with the square one, It covers most of the actor conditions' icons. Thus, I have to set the D-pad at the bottom center, which is not ideal, and possibly also affects my ability using the D-Pad effectively.
Moreover, somehow I feel that the square D-Pad is not transparent enough. For that matter, the quickslots are not transparent enough too (this is not related to beta test, but in general).
Will a flexible positioning helps with the game play? Definitely yes. If I may add, not only flexible, but ability to set the transparency the D-Pad will also help when its position overlaps with other views. But, if adjusting the transparency is not possible, ability to move the D-Pad on-the-fly, or something similar will helps.
Unfortunately I am unable to provide screenshots because I have switched back to 7.12 released version.

Also, one other quick one: Do you typically play mostly with dpad, mostly without, or a mix?QQkp wrote: ↑Fri Jan 15, 2021 8:39 pm If you wouldn't mind, I'd like to ask for some further feedback here.
For context, I introduced the new graphic because the old one was, in a sense, "wrong", in that the logical regions of the button didn't accurately correspond to the button's appearance. We previously chatted about this on the forum here. I play permadeath with the dpad, so that matters quite a bit to me - walking the wrong direction can mean game over, sometimes.
So I'd like to understand:
I still have the SVG source file for the new dpad image, so tweaking it wouldn't take much time if we can think of ways that might make it feel better.
- Could you describe what you dislike about the new graphic? (Size? Opacity? Aesthetic? Function?)
- Would your concern be addressed with more flexible positioning options for the dpad (like you suggested in the thread I linked above)? Or would you still prefer the previous graphic even with that?
- Would you mind sharing a screenshot of your layout?
