I find these very difficult to differentiate (1600x1200 on 21" monitor). Is there any way you could graphically enhance the look of the Couples' counters? Darker color? Dark outline? More prominent image of the people?
Yes, that was one of my concerns, but I'm afraid that a good solution would require substantial changes to the original counters, and I'm not good at image processing.
I have added the tooltips though, as that was really easy.
How about always showing a single tower in the upper right for all barons, and a tower on the upper left AND right for couples. This would mean they would not visually rotate as the real counters do. I can do this for you, but I thought I'd run the idea by you first so as not to waste my time if you don't like it.
Hmm... I don't know... I'm used to distinguish them by looking at the towers, 1 tower is a Baron and 2 towers together is a Couple, having the Couple with 2 separated single towers may generate confusion. For the same reason, in general I don't like much the idea of having something different than the real game, unless it's really necessary. Maybe trying to highlight the towers?
I can distinguish them without much problems on my screen (1024x768), but of course at higher resolution it should be more difficult. What about the age? Is it readable?
(If you really want to spend some time on this, I can provide you the hi-res scans of the counters).
