Dedicated JB with SK Key Layout
« on: May 11, 2006, 07:25:05 am »
What a mouthful.
Great piece of SW SK!!
Ok im planning on buying the mameroom plans and I cant see what buttons they have (left & right). Im having buttons only. No joystick, no mouse, no keyboard.

Anyway my question is: What do decdicated SK JB'ers out there use for button layout?
More precisely I know I want left and right arrow plus digits. How would I access teh menu to find an artist.
I have over 300gb of music so as nice as arrowing thru....the first thing I woudl ask would be ...how can i find an artist or title?

Any feedback on what users have or ideas would be excellent

cheers

I use 16 buttons in my juke.  4 direction - up, down, left, and right.  10 numeric 0-9. 1 enter  and 1 random.  It works pretty well for me.  I didn't have room for any more buttons.  When I have to scroll through a large album it can be a pain because it goes back to 4 album view too fast, but SK  has plans I believe to change that in a future release.  The only other thing is you have too punch in a number to use the up and down arrows to get focus on the album list and use an enter key to select the song.  Sk had also mentioned adding an option to set focus on the first song in an album list when you enter single album view, but I don't know if he has given it much more thought.  Otherwise, I am happy with my setup, and this excellent program.

Yeah, both of these things will be addressed in a later version.  I will give you the option to not go back to 4 album view after x seconds, and also give you the ability to change the amount of time before it goes back (currently 10 seconds, IIRC).  I started adding the focus option, so that's a WIP too.  Only problem I came up with was if Mouse Support was turned off, it crashes the program....other than that it seemed to work well.
