this is probably in the works already but a new cellwall would be awesome - or an improved viewpoint.

edit - oh and transparency behind orb if possible instead of black hole

someone would have to rebuild the 3d model as it's just a sphere with a image pasted on to it...

Already rebuilt the model. Not a sphere any more. Transparency should be as easy as applying alpha to it now. biggrin.gif

My wish is to fix the smartftp bugs were files will not show but drive partitions do.

I would also like to see a progress bar in the nexgen dvd2xbox and also a tidy up of the menus so Xenium OS is in settings etc.

And installation on a different partition hope these lil bugs get fixed, oh and sort out the skins tab to display more than one skin smile.gif.

What would be good would be a file editor that can edit all files like *.txt and *.xml + more.

And a xbox to xbox ftp program

Here are some ideas that I don't think other dashboards have (yet) - not sure if some are actually possible, but I'm sure there are ways around them wink.gif

Button re-configuration - A feature that lets you change which button does what, like re-mapping the 'B' button as the 'A' button (and visa versa) so that you can get around pre-set configurations within games and you can choose your own (and possibly automatically loading the specific configuration for a particular game when it is loaded up) - although this idea might be more suitable for a BIOS - Xenium OS perhaps? Also, would it be possible to change the sensitivity of the analog sticks/buttons?

Manual/walkthrough support - Simply a folder that contains manuals/walkthroughs etc. for a particular game and when that game is highlighted in the menu you have the option to press a button and bring up the manual for it or a guide if you're stuck

Quick choosing - This is just an idea to speed up the selection of certain features. Could you make a menu that lets you assign a button to programs/options as soon as the dash starts so that you just press the button and that menu pops up? E.g. Pressing 'Y' automatically opens the 'Games' folder, pressing 'white' opens the DVD drive or pressing 'X' launches an emulator etc etc. This obviously depends on what buttons have already been assigned to other dashboard features.

Tell me what you think and if you'll implement them, I'm sure I can think of some other stuff too!

Mine now takes screens on all menus gasclown (I needed to get good screens of the new models). I just pasted the screencapture code out of the mainmenu.lua in the correct place in the other .lua's. Read em and you'll find the place, sorry I'm in work and cant give you exact instructions.

Also Jess_X I am redoing all menus from scratch, I nearly got mainmenu finished and some of the game menu (uuurrghh!) done, bear with and all will look better soon, then I'll do the BSX menu style, and then some new ones smile.gif That is if the models ever become part of the skins, anyway.

Not possible as this is a dash & wont be able 2 change the configurations of a game sorry no can do there.

Might be possible once again wont be able 2 be used once ur in a game so ur going 2 need 2 read the guide before u start the game or exit the game read & reload,
