First of all.. really glad to hear from you again Haynor!
I'm not planning connect cab PC to internet as well but since You already wrote such function it's ok
Well I know there shouldn't be need for network connectivity in a cab, but auto-update is very convenient and effective (I use it for my own cab as well: build FEEL on dev PC -> play it on cab), so I would surely suggest to use it..
I'm glad to see switching layout on the fly without test mode even if I must keep service mode enabled to do this
This is something I tought quite a lot about.. layout test is a nice feature and having it always handy could possibly give something, but in the end it's not really useful in daily usage.. and a "casual" player (a little bad boy for instance
) could mess up a perfect configuration with it.
That's why I put it in service mode area: this suits better an average use.. Otherwise, if you like playing around with your cab, nothing should stop you from keeping service mode active: that's what I personally do
I'm not going to request new functions again but if You have time in the future and some other users might sees this as worthy implementing:
- add wrap text function to game, manufacture field (possibly others)
This would be a great improvement, but should be thought about quite accurately, otherwise we could possibly break compatibility with all current layouts. I'll think about it!
- add function to cut in game names everthing in brackets (I use ROMlister for now)
This is very simple, I don't know why I haven't done it until now
.. will do it soon!
- remove triangles from screensaver (really ugly)
Yeah they're quite ugly indeed .. they belong to a long time ago in FEEL's history!
I will maybe replace them with something better, but honest I don't feel like removing them: user needs to know he can move left/right to choose snapshot->start game.. any idea to solve this?
- remove black fill in screenshot or make it optional
This can be done quite easily, but usually doesn't match graphics.. have you designed some "special" layout?
- move switching layout from service mode to standard functions
- solve problem with white flashing screen (I bypassed this as I mentioned some time ago)
How did you do it? Sure you told me about this?
Keep it up good work dr.prodigy
..And your suggestions are always very sharp and focused.. thank you!
