Information  [WIP] Alaska HD
Post: #1
This will eventually be the next (ie final) reincarnation of Alaska.

It will be, as the title suggests, coded at 1080p and also pretty much from scratch (perfectionist that I am) so don't be surprised if I borrow, add or drop things from the previous versions.

There's absolutely no point in asking when it will be released because at the moment getting XeeBo Eden ready and working on Precession are my priority.

I've unstickied the older threads as I'll no longer be posting in them but feel free to ask things as there's (nearly) always someone who is willing to help - just don't expect an answer from me.

Thanks for supporting Alaska.

Hitcher.

Donations for this skin gratefully accepted

Sounds awesome. Will there be mouse support? Would also be good if you could use the Episodes view when your scrolling through the seasons.

Mouse support is a definite no.

Sorry to bother you about that one, but will you also start implementing PVR support in Alaska HD? Smile

What about creating a "Button/Icon" for accessing "C" and "I" without using the keyboard? That would be an awesome feature! Smile

Neither would work as buttons because you'd lose focus of what you're trying to access to reach them.

You are right, I managed to work it out by adding it as MCE Keyboard in Harmony. Wink
