  • Publication number: 20240189715
    Abstract: Systems and methods described herein may provide a system that adjusts a user interface (UI) of a game in a non-obtrusive way to a user. The system may determine the least obtrusive area(s) on the screen for a UI element game overlay to be presented, at least in part by determining an importance level for area on the screen containing a UI element. The importance level for an area on the screen may be determined using a generated heat map that indicates the importance values of various areas of the screen. The heat map may be generated with inputs including one or more of user interactions with UI elements, game context, UI element rate of change, user matching, and user preferences. The system may temporarily hide UI elements from display that are determined to be below a threshold importance level.
