FaceMaker update now with Previews!

I've uploaded the latest beta version of the FaceMaker applet to http://www.heromachine.com/ugo/facemaker5.htm if you want to give it a whirl. It now includes thumbnail previews of each item to make it clearer what your choices are. If you get the chance, let me know what you think, positive or negative. This is pretty much done in terms of functionality, once it gets a facelift from the UGO design team it'll be good to go, so get your feedback in now if there's anything in particular you're looking for that it doesn't offer.

    Looks very good, Jeff. The only thing I still miss is the alpha-channel for use with for example (sun)glasses. And while we’re at that, some glasses just use one color for the glassframe, can’t the other be used for the glasses itself (but only if an alphachannel is added).

    Also I just noticed the slidebar doesn’t show when there are different pages of previews, but maybe you left that for the designteam.

    Again great work!

    I think you should use some advanced hair styles like a long pony tail coming out of a Bun, for a female character, i always felt things missing when i play Hero Machine, but thats just my opinion.

    I think those are good ideas Kaiju. I also need to add a lot more sideburns in the hair slots, as someone else mentioned.

    I left the alpha channel out mostly to keep the save URL manageable, and to avoid that extra control. Plus for a facemaker, the only real application for alpha is the glasses, which didn’t seem enough of a payoff for the extra overhead.
