Tweak to uninstallation questions
« on: June 19, 2011, 03:31:42 pm »
When selecting "Uninstall UFO:AI", youget two popup windows:

1) Do you really want to remove UFO:AI and all its data? Y/N
2) Do you want to delete all your savegames and settings? Y/N

The problem? If you misclick, which is easy to do, bye-bye savegames and everything else, since the yes button appears in the same location on the screen, even if No is the default option for the second question.

A better approach would be to have a single popup that worked like this:

"Do you really want to remove UFO:AI and all its data? Y/N"
[checkbox, default value unchecked] Delete my savegames and settings

How the checkbox question/option is worded and default checked/unchecked is irrelevant as long as the default position on it is to keep the savegames and data, because right now burning yourself when updating is far too easy to do.
