"Symbol" skin updated
#1
you can find the update of my skin here:
http://www.xbox-skins.net/index.php?download=2075
i've tested it with the 27/09/04 cvs build and it doesn't seems to have any problem, but i need some more testing and any help will be very appreciate.
once i'm sure that the pal version is working fine and i'm not missing anything, i'll make the update for ntsc.
there is something new in the home window so please let me know your impressions or suggestions.
enjoy.  :thumbsup:

i've just tested your skin and i had no problems - great work!

one thing i don't like is the blinking "select movie", "edit your movie".

another thing, which i would also like to work, is the issue with the defaultcontrol in my programs (entering my programs with the cursor on the first game and not on the menu).

edit: i couldn't change to the arial-ttf-font.

tnx bob :d
i'll take off that blinking text i guess everybody know how to use the ram now.
for the default control in my program i beleive that we can only post it as a new topic here in the forum and in the bug tracker on sourceforge and then wait for some developer who fix it.
i have no idea how the fonts work or how to change them , i took them from the first "leonardo" skin when i started making the skin, so if you have suggestions for better fonts or how to improve them let me know.
ciao. :thumbsup:

tnx for the tip pike, it will take me some time but i'll do the ntsc version too; i also have a small 7'' lcd display with pal/ntsc 4/3 and 16/9 resolution.
i've also checked the bugs of the ram and just a very few times, mostly the first time i power on the xbox, i still have the error "item not found".
this is the log file:
03-06-2099 12:08:07 info onmediaupdate:

03-06-2099 12:08:10 error unable to wait for ntp reply from the sntp server, getlasterror returns 10060

i still need the possibility to specify the lenght of the title in the skin or it will go out of the textures, and i hope sombody will take care of it.

at last i've added ttf font support in the skin, but my labels doesn't change colors when they get focus.
i normally use grey for nofocus and black for focus and what happens is that with one font it goes only grey and with another font it goes only black. why??

tnx in advance for any help.
p.s. i love this stuff  :d

for the font stuff, it could be because you are using alpha?

ttf fonts don't handle the alpha channel - only opaque colours.

tnx johnatan i'll check it up as soon as possible, right now i'm pretty busy making the ntsc version and i found out that all the images didn't rescale to different resolutions because i was missing the size tags <width> and <height> in most of the xml files (i thought it was not necessary).
adding those tags i'll be able to put in the ntsc dir just the reference.xml and not all of them like i did in the previous versions.

regarding the ram i've taked a look in the guiramcontrol.cpp and i' tryed to change a parameter for the lenght of the movie title in this part:
void cguiramcontrol::onmediaupdate( int nindex, cstdstring& strfilepath,
cstdstring& strtitle, cstdstring& strimagepath)
{
clog::log(loginfo, "onmediaupdate: " );
clog::log(loginfo, strfilepath.c_str() );

if (strtitle.getlength()>64)
{
strtitle = strtitle.mid(0,63);
}

i've replaced 64 with 24 and 63 with 23 and it reduce the lenght of the name of the movie and so the button lenght.
now i'd like to know how does it exaclty work? if i use a font with size 13 the lenght will be 24x13=312 pixels?
if it work in that way for a lenght of 64 caracters i will have 64x13=832 pixels and it will be out of the screen, right?
i'd really like to have the possibility to specify the lenght of the buttons in the skin but if this is not possible can you change the maximum lenght of the title in the cvs to something between 20 and 24?


p.s. i hope i didn't say too many bullshit

not really. we use proportional fonts, so their width isn't just a multiple of the number of characters, as each character is a different width, and also the spacing can effect things.

there should be a way to limit the amount of text rendered just like we do for the list controls etc.

i'll download your skin when i have time and pop a fix in for you - probably won't have nifty scrolling labels or anything, but should at least stop it overwriting other stuff.

cheers,
jonathan

well i have no idea if there is something wrong, i've teste it with a 7'' lcd display that support pal and ntsc, and using "enighma video select ".
it works for me so, i'll really appreciate if somebody with ntsc can give some feedback. (tnx)
anyway i'm making a lot of changes now, this is a preview of what i'm doing:
