ECEC Wrote:Hitting EXIT from videos/music libraries goes to a very tiny list, as opposed to the Home\Whatever menu item I would expect. I can get to the Home screen by pressing ESCAPE, but that takes me all the way back. It's very confusing for the average user (ie wife).
Hitting back will take you to the higher level nodes in the library. This will not be changed as the cons outweigh the pros imo. Adding an option for this would basically mean doubling the code for the menu system and adding a lot of conditionals.
For anyone wanting a custom mod with "Back" skipping the higher levels, the solution is really simple though.
- open up HomeSubMenu.xml
- add a "return" parameter to any entry you wish to have this behaviour
- An example:
But if I understand you correctly you also want the submenu entry you chose to stay "open" until you return. I can have a look at it, but I'm afraid that's a tall order.

Go into skin settings->main menu and enable "open settings screen instead of settings menu"
This will allow you to go back to the settings screen after having been in one of the category.
This will disable the home submenu however and go through a settings page first.
Alternately, don't change the above setting and open up SettingsCategory.xml and add this line:
at the very top of the file under <window id="4">

Also, I think I've seen you say no to this before, but I would really like to have the option of having TV Shows/Movies as part of the home screen.
Yeah, that's going to stay the way it is. It's just one click.
Quote:Have you considered using Music fanart as the backdrop when you have music highlighted on the Home menu?
I want to stay away from having overly busy homescreens with backgrounds changing with every keypress. So that would be a no. I will be adding an option to display music fanart as the homescreen slideshow though.
Quote:Is there a way/option for me to get normally capitalized text?
Yup. By modding the fonts.xml file
By looking at the font names and at the font files themselves it really shouldn't be hard.
I will be adding an alternate fontset which is like you want, but it's just not very high on the list. Probably 0.9 material.

Nope, thanks for the feedback
