Plea for BOB
In the difficulty setting-no double negatives
It's not "No Minipath" with the switch- on (yes) or off (no) it should just be "Minipath" on (yes) or off (no)
I guess I am nitpicking but it is really annoying and confusingand just not needed.

If it's clicked, it's harder. Just look at it that way.

I Agree, Totally!! One hundred percent.

In some languages, double negatives are the norm in grammatical format...not so in English.

Perhaps you should pass along this idea to Oleg in the OlegReadingRoom forum.

The options in FB/PF for the difficulty selections are a major source of questions on teh forums from noobies.

Dat Buzz...pretty much sums up most threads in one line. I agree with him, too.

To me, the buttons are logically laid out as Yes/No choices, with YES being engaged. Think of them as Questions...mostly I think to keep the emphasis on more "ON" = Higher Difficulty.

Complex Engine Management? Yes / No

No Icons? Yes / No

No Minipath? Yes / No

Just saying what works for me...as the more left toggles you have the more right you are in some circles. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I do however agree, No Icons = NO (to have icons) is a little confusing if you read it out loud. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
