Updates - Posted on: 7/9/2016   [Friction]

I updated the graphics for the select screen and the heads-up-display.

There's been some bad storms and power outages where I live. Despite that, I was able to make a little progress. The color trim now matches the color that is assigned to the player when they join the match. So.. player stats, chat text, indicators and ui are all color coordinated. (Since there are no player names, I think the colors will help to better distinguish between the different players.)

While working on that, I realized I haven't been handling the server/client "start up" function correctly, so I'll be working on that next.
