Minor bugs and requested changes ;D for Unleashx V0.37.1218a Build 543
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Realy nice work on the last release, have ditched AVA after it ;D

This is my report on minor bugs and changes that would be great!



BUGS:
* FTP transfering, Still get errors on XB->XB, have checked the log and tried using FlashFXP, got errors there too, error was only on 0kb files :?, (FTP log sayed "426 Connection closed, transfer aborted.") (no error on most 0kb files :?)
* FTP transfering, Got Not enough free space on target host, There was aroung 25GB free and the transfer about 2,5GB :?
* Messages, many is not complete - site help = recognized: NADA, Tranfer error: NADA (have to open the log)
* FTP transfering, UX stopped transfering if I made more connections while transfering, but not freeze/error and tried to cancel but didn't have the patient to wait... (not every time!)

- FTP transfering, UL UX->AVA 0.49.1 = AVA freeze, guess it has nothing to do with UX!
- FTP Autodiscover, AVA didn't find UX-boxes, guess it has nothing to do with UX!
- FTP Autodicover, UX finds AVA-boxes two time, guess it has nothing to do with UX!



REQUESTS:
* FTP Autodiscovering, show nick and IP (if no nick there don't say anyting, NADA, just an icon)
* FTP transfering, Total transfer, %bar/size/remain size/elapsed time/remaining time/avarage speed.
* FTP transfering, pause/resume functions.
* FTP transfering, resume/overwrite files.
* FTP transfering, seperate error-log.
* FTP queue list, save/load queue list.
* FTP log, jump to bottom of page...
* FTP, Show free space in status like XBMC or like AVA or auto SITE FREESPACE X (shortn the number to MB/GB ).
* FTP transfering, Calculate used space on marked items over network.
* FTP transfering, Calculate transfer-size and check freespace automaticly before starting transfering, and show dialog-info (Where there is not enough free space) and confirmation (START/ABORT - START is not choosable if not enough freespace.
* Nettwork, Auto setup XB->XB settings (IP) - for newbies.
* Integrate unlock/lock HDD function.
* Skins, use skin_4x3.xml if normal screen is set, skin_16x9.xml if widescreen is set, and skin.xml if 4x3/16x9 is not found.
* Support more video formats for previewing.
* FTP transfer %bar, UL = whole game, DL = each file , make it whole game on DL too if no total %bar is made.
* FTP, Disable more connections while transfering, experienced that UX stopped transfering, but not freeze/error and tried to cancel but didn't have the patient to wait... (not every time!)
* LCD support (SmartXX/X3/Xenium/Aladdin XT).
* Voice over IP (Live headset).
* Gampad/IR shortcuts, Last used app/game.
* Games menu, DL savegames (xbox-saves.com).
* Integrated password manager, one place to manage all passwords in UnleashX, use one password on all, make groups with different passwords.
* Language translations.
* Support for USB keyboard/mouse.
* Integrated flashplayer for like screensavers (swfx).
* Integrate MSN/IRC.
* Menu, Add miniGames (homebrews and ported games)
* Menu, Add Emulators (emulators!)

- Integrated Xlink is not needed, because XBMC has done a realy good job on that, but how about XBconnect?
- Flash chip utility (search in bios-folder on C/DVD/E/F/G) possibility to add chips to compatible-list, and hash.

Bugs for the recent UnleashX as of this post go here.

QUOTE (m3tro @ Dec 20 2004, 03:26 AM)
* Gampad/IR shortcuts, Last used app/game.

Game/IR shortcuts are already implemented in System->Gamepad/IR Shortcut. Press Start and select Recent Titles.. to see the last used app/game (the top one)
QUOTE
* Games menu, DL savegames (xbox-saves.com).

Downloading game saves is done by going into the Game Saves Manager and pressing Y.
QUOTE
* Menu, Add miniGames (homebrews and ported games)
* Menu, Add Emulators (emulators!)

The menus can be added manually by including this in config.xml:
CODE
 <List Text="Emulators" Sort="On" Auto="On" AltIcon="">
  <Path>F:\Emulators</Path>
  <Path>E:\Emulators</Path>
 </List>
 <List Text="Games" Sort="On" Auto="On" AltIcon="">
  <Path>E:\Games</Path>
  <Path>F:\Games</Path>
  <Path>G:\Games</Path>
  <Path>E:\HDDLoader</Path>
  <Path>F:\HDDLoader</Path>
 </List>

I would like to state since I can't edit my post at the top that those requests are not from me but rather the ones I found in the original Wishlist thread.

I would love integrated Kai and I know it would take work but it would be well worth it. Many users are switching to XLink from XBC because they find the users more friendly as well as the XLink team more open. Kai has a better relationship with the scene. XBC is "trying" to have a better relationship with M$. Which would you rather have? XBC will probably not release any code to dashes because M$ would really frown upon that so Kai is the best you can get. But hey Kai is better anyways so I really hope James is working on this but he's already given me my Christmas present (last build of UnleashX wub.gif )

answear to isaac_24.

I agree in that Recent Titles.. is good to launch last used apps/games (forget about it when I wrote the requests..)

Didn't know Downloading game saves was there, but now I know biggrin.gif

Reason I wanted miniGames and Emulators menus to be default, is if there will be any language translations biggrin.gif (Am willing to make the one for Norwegian and update it when needed). And I know how to make the menus, hehe wink.gif.





more wishes..
-------------------

* skins, automaticly use screensaver.xmv as screensaver if found with skin.
* TextEditor, support .nfo and .log files.
* Images, view .tbn files as .jpg.
* skins, if no preview is fond, automake screenshot when used and set as preview.

Just to repeat what Jezz_X stated in this post. Highlight the file in the File Manager and press 'Start". Then select 'Open in Text Editor'.

Trying to keep everything neat. It helps for compiling a FAQ too. I got some Q and A's down right now.

Like Kthulul, I would also like passwords that use button combos.

With the system now the person right next to you could see every letter your putting in because the letters get highlighted! Also it is very slow to use an onscreen keyboard compared to a few button presses.
