Color blind setting for the Video Settings template

Recommended Posts

I think a color/colour blindness setting for the Video Settings template may be helpful. The only game I currently know supports it is Monaco. I think it'd be an automatically-unused setting like Oculus Rift support or EAX audio. It would only be listed if true.

 

Thoughts?

SimCity supports it. But to be honest, is it not too obscure to put in the video settings template? I'd support it being listed in the notes, but a whole row just to itself seems a bit much. Of course we want to support the colour-blind gaming community but at the same time the content has to remain readable and accessible to the majority and if we clog up the video settings template too much it just becomes useless in its purpose to be concise.

Well then it will only appear if you add the "true" icon, which would make it inconsistent with the other variables in the table, which are meant to appear even if the game does not support them so the user can be sure that it lacks support for those features using the "false" icon.

I know that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops 2 (I think Battlefield 3 also has it) have Color Blind support in the settings which change the color of some HUD elements.

      Hi,
       
      I'm trying to add some games that are don't have colourblind modes, but the design of the games are colour blind friendly regardless, like in this list: https://gamingph.com/2016/12/list-of-pc-games-with-color-blind-mode-for-colourblind-user/
      It doesn't feel right to set this to outright true or false, as the games are already constantly in a colourblind mode, but it doesn't have a specific toggle to turn it on and off ingame.
       
      I thought perhaps setting it to n/a wouuld be a good compromise and then add a note to say it's colourblind friendly. But when I tried to set it to n/a, the n/a icon wouldn't appear, it would just be blank.
       
      Would you be able to add the n/a option to the colourblind section? Or if you have a different idea tell em what to do and I'll add the colourblind friendly games the way you suggest :)
       
      Thanks, Effie
