Is The Scroll Delay Improved?
Posted 04 August 2004 - 06:13 PM
If you notice in UnleashX, there is kinda a delay in there for when the video displays after scrolling to a game. This delay (or whatever it is) allows you to scroll through the games real fast even though they all have videos.
Will the new "o" release have something like that to speed up the scrolling?

In the latest WIP, it seemed to load the image from disc every time you went up and down the menu, even if it had already loaded the image before, so it seems it no longer keeps the images in memory. This made scrolling up and down slower than 0.9n6.
I've reduced the problem a bit by reducing the size of the images, but the WIP still seems a little less responsive than 0.9n6, which is a shame. I'm hoping there is a configurable option in the WIP to optionally make it behave the same as 0.9n6 in this manner, but I haven't heard back from BJ (I posted this in the thread of WIP problems).
I realise that you're talking about videos rather than images, which I wouldn't expect to be kept in memory anyway, so I'm probably describing a different issue than you are. I just thought it worth me repeating my above observations in a thread specifically about WIP scrolling.

There may be a few other things I'll do as well.

|.xmv support would be nice, but I worry it would mean users would have to download XDK utilities (illegally) to convert their movies. It's already hard enough finding compiled binaries for newbies, but having to find the XDK tools too would make it even worse for them!|
.xmv converted videos are freely available in the games you backup onto your hard drive and through xbox-skins.net, that others have already converted...
Plus, the .xmv converter tool is available in the same place mxm is available...
