Game Slots

Here's a preview of the game slots menu which appears when you want to load a game or start a new game.

Game Slots preview

When clicking on a load slot, I will display the hero's portrait on the right side. Eventually I will add painted art in the background (though I'm not sure what of yet).

So, it's not thrilling to have a fixed number of game slots. However, four slots have nice symmetry with the four attributes and disciplines. As with everything in Flare, I've done it simple the first pass and reserve the right to do it much nicer later.

The displayed information for each slot might change. Maybe I should translate the hero's build into a class label. Maybe I should display the current map name. Possibly display the file timestamp.
