As part of our ongoing effort to modernize the design and improve the functionality of the in-game UI, we are excited to introduce a NEW topbar for PC, Mac and all mobile devices! This topbar is more lightweight than the existing one, so the visuals of your game can shine through! To save space, we moved most of the icons to a new Game Context Menu on the right side. As you can see below, when you open this Menu, you’ll have access to the Leaderboard / Player List, Emotes and Backpack / Inventory. The shortcut keys are also listed so your players can learn how to directly access these features, if they are enabled in your game.
The new Topbar should have little to no impact on your game’s UI. The Topbar area is still 36 pixels tall as it was before, but it is worth checking when it goes live in case you included any UI elements inside the Topbar space and need to make any adjustments.
I prefer the old topbar; however changes are usually made for the better!
I would really prefer the settings tab be a hamburger icon rather than the ROBLOX icon because that is essentially a standard for lots of platforms.
EDIT: Looking at the screenshots again makes me feel that the ROBLOX Icon is infact not the settings panel, but instead just an image of the ROBLOX Logo. No idea why they would put it there except because maybe they wanted to fill empty space. I think this is the settings panel now?
EDIT 2: It turns out the ROBLOX Icon is actually the settings panel for clarification of those unsure.
The ROBLOX Icon plug is not pleasing!
Icons feel more “bubbly.” Can we expect to similar changes in the Backpack Gui?
