Just some quick stuff that isn't needed, but would be nice to see.

Buttons

*In instances of a game with equal numbers, the vote for game options ( not kicking) will still be voted on, but in occurance of a tie, the item is chosen randomly between only the top voted options*

Kick Player button : Pretty self-explanatory, used for multiplayer games. Used by the Admin/Gamemaster of a server. On clicked, a list of player names shows up and you click the name of the player you want to kick. Has a confirm button aswell.

Vote Kick button : Also pretty self-explanatory, used for multiplayer games, can be used by everyone in the server to kick someone who is AFK or causing trouble.On clicked, a list of player names shows up and you click the name of the player you want to kick. Has a confirm button aswell. Can only be used if there the server does not have a gamemaster or an admin.

Vote Map button : Used for multiplayer games, can be used by everyone in the server to choose a map that they want and it is voted on. On clicked, a list of map names shows up and you click the name of the map you want to play. Can only be used if there the server does not have a gamemaster or an admin. Cannot be used on servers that play only one map.Put in place of the map list in multiplayer games.If not voted, it switches to the default, which is random unless set by the server as something else.

Vote Gametype : Used for multiplayer games, can be used by everyone in the server to choose a gametype hat they want and it is voted on. On clicked, a list of gametype names shows up and you click the name of the gametype you want to play. Can only be used if there the server does not have a gamemaster or an admin. Cannot be used on servers that play only one gametype. After the vote comes in, a map must also be chosen by vote. Put in place of the gametype list in multiplayer games. If not voted, it switches to the default, which is random unless set by the server as something else.

Vote A.I. Diffuculty : This is used when an CPU is playing. Can be used in any gametype except for games with only two people or a game with an Admin or Gamemaster. Used to handicap the CPU to make it either stronger or weaker. Click on it to show a list of the 3 options, Easy, Normal, Hard. Click the one you want to vote. Put in place of the A.I. list. If not voted, it switches to the default, which is normal unless set by the server as something else.

Vote Game Speed: Can be used in any gametype except for games with only two people or a game with an Admin or Gamemaster. Used to handicap the CPU to make it either stronger or weaker. Click on it to show a list of the 3 options, Fast, Normal, Slow Click the one you want to vote. Put in place of the Game Speed list. If not voted, it switches to the default, which is normal unless set by the server as something else.

Added Lists

A.I. Diffuculty: This is used when an CPU is playing. Can be used at in any gametype. Denotes how the CPU should be handicapped. 4 list options- Easy, Normal, Hard, and Random. Easy makes the CPU's troops easier to kill and it takes longer and costs more for the CPU to train them. Normal presents no handicap. Hard changes the CPU's troop's health and damage. Random chooses randomly out of one of the 3 other options.

Game Speed : Changes the pace of the game to provide a short, hectic game or a longer, more drawn out game. 4 list options- Fast, Normal, Slow, Random. Fast speeds it up all the creation time of buildings and troops and the troops movement speed. Normal places the game at normal pace. Slow drags down the creation time of buildings and troops and the troops movement speed. Random chooses randomly out of one of the 3 other options.

Added List Options

Random Map : An option under the map list. Randomly selects a map under appropriate gametype. This is the default option.

Random Gametype An option under the gametype list. Randomly selects a gametype and puts the map to default option.


Misc

Compatibility for lower resolutions : I have an okay laptop that runs this game on 800x600, it works, but many of the options are cut and the numbers for the teams are just dots in the game lobby.

Randomize Teams : Saves a lot of hassle when it comes to having to choose your team everytime. Although a vote would could also be done to choose whether or not it will be random, so to have friends play on the same team. But keeping the default as random.
