Resize the File Manager when in High Definition. I can Hardly see what I'm doing when in High Definition and trying to delete or transfer files.

Ability to change the fan speed in the "Settings" area, instead of changing the xml.
Useful to me as I like to run at a quiet 20% in the air-conditioned evenings for DVDs, and raise it to 50% during the very hot daytime for serious games sessions.
Doing it in the xml every time is a pain.

as others have said, (I'm just helping to boost demand for them):

text editor, with support for xml. No PC needed then to config files.
xbox name editor (ala xtoolbox) (should be easy to do)

I don't use the cd ripper since I know dvd2xbox works well (I've never even tried the ava one). No offence to the ppl who coded it, but why not base it on dvd2xbox? Like have it launch the dvd2xbox menu or something when you choose rip disc. But have all the code within the 1 ava xbe. You would then have ACL support as others are requested.

The only downside to this is if dvd2xbox gets updated long before a new ava update is due. I'm happy with using dvd2xbox as stand alone however, at the end of the day,.

These would be two really easy to do suggestions.

First: make it possible to use \localpics so that it randomly loads a background picture only in the startup. Now it's not too useful as it changes the picture every 10 seconds or so, meanwhile freezing the dash. So basically just add a "No slideshow" switch to the \localpics skinning smile.gif

Second: make it possible to play one mp3/wma in the startup. Nothing else. You could use the same audioplayer routine, but either let the file be assigned or the loop taken off from the current situation. I put an Avalaunch intro wma to the Avalaunch folder, but the current version plays the one wma over and over and over and over...

So, minor changes that shouldn't take too much to do i presume but would add some nice customability.

PS. Thanks for the best dash!!!

QUOTE (nagolcj @ Jun 16 2004, 05:52 AM)
The "connect to kai" option is buried pretty deep in the menus (don't necessarily want it to autostart), is there any way to add it as a line item on the main menu?

I definatly have to agree with these requests.. Having the "Connect to Kai" option as a preset would be great.. for example:

<item presetname="Connect to Kai" function="KaiConnect"/>

And possibly another option to disconnect from kai too..

Would it be possible to make Avalaunch detect if another xbox is already connected on a LAN before trying to connect.. ?? My reasons for wanting this are :-
I have 4 xbox's at home on my LAN. The Kai engine runs permanently on my server PC, the xbox's can then just connect to the engine as and when needed.. however, one xbox connects successfully.. all other xbox's after that just constantly connect & disconnect giving the "Logged into kai successfully" and "Engine detached avalaunch" messages. It would be nice if they other xbox's avalaunch knew that kai was already connect via another xbox and would therefore not continue to retry .. is this possible at all? I'm not sure what information the kai engine feeds back to ava..

1. Streaming support for screensaver, instead of having to use locally stored pics

2. Actually, streaming support, period. smile.gif Maybe talk to the XBMC team and use some of their code for this?

Otherwise, excellent release - pleased you stuck with it after the issues you had back at the start of the year...

A way to manage my Soundtracks would be nice. Using MSDash to name them is a pain. An option to rename them through Avalaunch would be great.

It would be awesome if Avalalaunch could create Soundtracks from CD and get the tracklist from a freecddb database. I don't know how much work that would be though.

regarding Kai in avalaunch.

Intergrate the chat rooms in the arena. For the chat using the onscreen keyboard, there should be a way of storing common phrases so you don't have to typed them out all the time such as:

-Hi
-Anyone hosting?
-i'll host
-you host
-join up
-yes
-no
-good game
-got to go

maybe they can be strings people store so each can have their own unique comments stored for use in chat.

-The ability to see if the users in the room are idle, busy or hosting.
-create private rooms
-create passworded private rooms
-see private rooms
-talk through the dash using headset on arena
-send pm's to buddies
-send invitations to buddies
-follow the buddy to the same room button
-general chat room

basically, just cover all the stuff that the Pc counter part does.

Well, it's more like a bug to me, but maybe you could make a feature out of it by making it selectable in the .xml weather or not to enable that bugfix. Anyways, check out
http://forums.xbox-s...0


[Edit]
Oh, and after an automatic update, it should be possible to create a blank .xml file with all the new features and options activated. Right now, I don't know how to enable KAI support, because I don't know what to add to my .xml file.
I'll have to download the whole package on xbins, I guess... ;/

I don't know if this has been mentioned, but yesterday i just tried the VoIP for the first time worked great. I was thinking however, if avalaunch could show your outside IP on the dash along with your NAT IP. This way when friends ask for you IP address to connect to you can just tell them without having to check on your pc. BTW, i guess this is only needed if you have a dynamic IP.
