Ok I am sure that almost everyone here knows about ATB or action time battles. Well also with this ATB system comes with a face HUD that shows the actors menu face instead of there name. In battle where the ATB,HP.MP,and TP a special type of MP are put on the face graphic.like so. This is an awesome system I think because I love ATB battles so much. This ATB system was made by Yami and the face HUD by Yanfly.
Here is where my new style of ATB comes to play. I also like animated gauges and found a ATB system that uses an emotional face graphic HUD, but the gauges were animated so I thought this is awesome but your not always going to have emotional graphics for your characters so I decided how to try it with ACE's default system since the new ATB system i found is also a first person batle system like the default but the battle HUD is totally custom in every way so it isn't fit for the default battle system. This was a problem because I really wanted to use animated gauges for my ATB until I played Final Fantasy X's battle system where there is an order gauge on the side like this.
I then thought why not do that and have it like the order HUD. So I configured the HUD position, and this what I came up with.
Here is what it looks like on the left and right.
Also another reason I like this ATB was the way you could choose different ways of how to fill the ATB gauge I use the option that makes it to wher the faster you are the faster your gauge fills but also the number of battlers will slow/increase it fill speed. This ATB was made by Moghunter
So the big question is what do you think of using ATB in this way.

You need to keep it stupid simple, never over-complicate as it just complicates into a complicated mess. I don't like it to be honest, it just looks completely out of place unless you were to add your hero's stats and a nice face maybe but really it's out of place.
