Manutoo, I thought that maybe the thing is, that You like some classic composition menus, and You want it, for example like that:
(I used of course background which I can't use, but for showing what i mean)

Looks great but imo a bit too futuristic. Too clear, too straight. Especially the font. Maybe another font? Or just bigger letters.
Hm thats what i think. You know what i mean? The lines a bit bigger..

Manutoo said, the he wants a modern menu, so I try to create something modern in classic composition.
The lines are so tiny the letters are small to, cause it makes this screen gently and soft.

It looks absolutely amazing - actually better than most commercial sports games menus. It looks clean, fresh and doesn't have the clutterish-glitterish look so typical in this genre.

Btw, there is a number of games based on Metro in Windows store, Manu ;)

This last version of your menu is so awesome !

It's right that the menu look doesn't change since a long time, and this addition would be a total refreshment and can give TE like a new life !

Keep going in this direction kristooph, it's just WOW !

Please manutoo, think about that and everyone would be thankfull of both of you for this awesome change !

Nigogu,
as mentioned earlier, I won't do new menus for TE2013, but I will for TEM2/TE4.
The "it is not a piece of cake" is referring to the work required to Modders who would be willing to do a complete reskinning of TE2013 menus, not to myself.

kristooph,
sure, if you can do 222 icons in a style that we agree could replace current TE2013 menus, I could incorporate these changes, but as I said it's a long work. I'm not sure how much time it'd take you, so I'm not sure if you'll have fun all the way long ; anyway, it's up to you to see about that... :)
But there's also a 2nd big problem : as I said, the skinning possibilities are pretty thin, and if you want to move things around too much, or even recompose the menu contents (as seen on your examples so far), then it won't be possible to do it without script coding. I don't know if you're able and willing to do it, but me, I won't do it for TE2013 (I could still do some little things here & there to help you, but I won't do a complete re-haul).

About style ; for me, it's important that the style brings a game atmosphere, so it takes people into another world, the game world, and they can forget the real world with these real problems for a little while ; it also gives a stronger identities to the game, and it should somewhat match with the game content (ie: 3D players, 2D & 3D courts, all that stuff).

The wave-less TE4 icon seems better to me ! :yes: Could you do also a try without wave on the sides of the "TE" letters inside ?

And your last menu mock-up looks great..! It's much more game like, and it actually kinda matches what I had in mind for TEM2/TE4 menus : some big curves all around the screen. In this menu style, the background pics will be very important, and there you chose one that does a great job.
As exposed by ElNino, the font could a bit more bold, though.
Now the problems... There, you have a text based menu, which means it'd require a re-haul of the menus ; ie: menu scripts would need to be rewritten, which takes time that I don't currently have.
By any chance, would you have some ideas to improve the menus without changing the current menu logic & flow ? ie: keep icons where's there's currently icon, keep text where's there's currently text ; you can move around & change the bottom bar (exit/help text/back), the right side option bar, the TE bar (at top of screen), and the left menu title bar.


adner,
I'm not surprised, like I said it's a lot a matter of taste, but I'd rather have game menus than OS menus... :P

If i am drawing and making project for 10 years with pleasure so these 200 icons are with pleasure too.

But for this menu i wouldn't do that, cause when i am doing sth i'm representing my taste, my style and my mark, so i don't wanna be recognising by ugly whole menu, cause people treat it as a whole thing, not devide it for parts.

I can't understand why You don't wanna use my free job which i am doing for You, even if it is a lot of work, without work there is no changes. New look can bring You a lot of sold copies, cause believe me, people buying sth when like first impression. Why a big companies pay milions dollars for one good looking advertisment. Cause people look once at sth and want to buy it - they don't have time to try sth for a month.

As You see, there wasn't any bad comment from people who play in that, so they just like it.

But if You don't care about that thats Your lost, i offer help, You dont want it. So thats it.

As You said, that You want atmosphere in Your game, I'm sure that TE4 will have as much well atmosphere and will be as pretty as TE 2013 is.
