Question  Disable navigation sounds but not startup?
Post: #1
Hello -

I've hunted a few threads and couldn't find any answers - is there a way to disable the navigation sounds but not the start up? It appears that if you set the nav sounds to off, it won't play the start up in Back Row.

Reason being - I replaced the start-up clapping with the overly famous THX intro, but it will only play when navigation sounds are on... unfortunately, all the click-click-click between menus is starting to get to me.

Maybe something I overlooked? Thanks in advance for any help.

Yeah sure no problem - within the skin look in the "sounds" folder for sounds.xml.

In there you'll find these controls - just edit it to change the sounds / delete the file names etc..

Code:
<action>
    <name>left</name>
    <file>cursor.wav</file>
</action>
<action>
    <name>right</name>
    <file>cursor.wav</file>
</action>
<action>
   <name>up</name>
   <file>cursor.wav</file>
</action>
<action>
   <name>down</name>
   <file>cursor.wav</file>
</action>
<action>
   <name>select</name>
   <file>click.wav</file>
</action>
<action>
   <name>parentdir</name>
   <file>back.wav</file>
</action>
<action>
   <name>previousmenu</name>
   <file>back.wav</file>
</action>
<action>
   <name>screenshot</name>
   <file>shutter.wav</file>
</action>

Cheers
