Here are a few screen shots of the client launch application (CLA) development. The CLA features a cool star field background and custom GUI components. The CLA will let you call up a list of zone servers and quickly launch the client and login to a server. It also allows you to modify game, graphics, sound and other settings. The GUI components are also used in the Phoenix USC client (windows, list boxes, sliders, buttons and more).
I wish I could post the CLA as it is much cooler looking then the images and features translucent panels and a very cool animated star field effect.
Although the last image shows DX7 and DX9 Phoenix USC also supports DX 10/11 as well as OpenGL.
