Implementing SkJukebox controls to MultiJuke (RELEASED)....
« on: October 01, 2007, 11:02:57 am »
As I said in previous thread, I have dedicated not to clone SkJukebox GUI, but instead I'm going to use the same controls (or so close as possible) as Sk-Jukebox.

Here is a unfinished primary screenshot, using Album View:


By now these standard controls would been used as I have seen on typical jukebox cabinets:
 - Numpad
 - Select
 - Clear
 - Delete
 - Back (here it only used when go back from QUEUE screen, which here can been "mapped" to Select)
 - Genre (direct select a another library, since I have seen a ROCK and COUNTRY button on a cabinet)

SkJukebox Controls not used:
- Skip Forward (I may add this)
- Skip Backwards (I may add this)
- F1 to F4 for album views (due to this a bit alternative GUI)

There are no "Show Album" screen yet. I'm not sure this would been needed, due to this smooth scrolling system I have created, so it not even needed at all.

I have also planning to support Joysticks/Trackball with onscreen keypad at the bottom or what I doing here to support them.

Other (controls) I should look on?

yep, it allready implemented....

Im going to use album 00 for options to choose library's (includning network) and so on, since there are no frontscreen.

Otherwice 00.00 would show the queue and XX.00 (or alternative just XX and ENTER without insert a song number) would add the whole album (if it enabled of course).

00.XX would auto select your libary without needing to press ENTER (this might been selectable).

Another work in progress screenshot in Attachment....

Here I have rotated the screen, scrolled a bit to the right (MultiJuke use smooth scrolling rather than page flipping).

Album 00 is added to select library and show queue (if more than one library is used).

not a big progress (which is because I have added UTF-8 document support and some various other minor things). Someone asked me about a russia language support of MultiJuke, which I came to priority highest (he do first have time to translate in the next week).

Otherwice the new GUI is going to work, but have still missing things, so I do not release it as beta yet... Here I have changed the standard colors with some other.

About some weeks I guess, but no beta release date. It simple not finished yet and missing many important features yet.

It now it working state and a beta release is not far away. It just couple of days, even few features might been missing in this beta.

I got show queue, singles, rotation, cdg-split (cdg in top, gui in bottom) and 4x3 support finished.

To-Do before beta:
- Get Explorer Library to work (this might work deficient than arcade GUI).
- Get 5x4, 16x9 and 16x10 support to work (rotation might not been supported in widescreen formats).

To-Do after beta:
- Random (Just random type a song)
- Find
- Library Select direct from a key button
- possible to remove song 00 entry (which is used for user based options and to switch libraries)

Sk-Jukebox not used in this GUI (that I know):
- F1 to F4 to select a album
- Video
- Touchscreen (use regular gui instead)

RELEASED....

More info at
http://www.multijuke.com/forum/index.php?topic=77.0

no need to explain it twice.

Hoping it not to close to Sk Jukebox other than the controls used (but not all controls/features might come in in its first release).

I have released 1.2.2 to fixing and adding few things (and fixed few bugs).

- Random works (as it allready did in 1.2), can can use a button.
- F1 -> F4 to select albums in Sk-Jukebox is used as select library in MultiJuke.
- Song 00 can now been hided, due to above function.

All above keys can been remapped.
