Hi Conners,

I vote to make all of them an option in the dash settings...
If you make a field for it in the settings, anyone can make it launch anything they want! tongue.gif

I especially like the ideas of Kai, and favorite app.

I agree with "the_xbox_guy". We all pretty much have the fourth tab now, even if it wasn't default. And I have mine set to what I want. Since it can be set to anything anyway it wouldn't matter to me. Howabout setting it to activate my beer dispenser. Now that would be amazing beerchug.gif flamethrower.gif

An option in the ini file could easily let someone add a 4th and even a 5th tab just by defining Tab Action 4 and/or Tab Action 5 in uix.ini

Something based on the code in this thread http://forums.xbox-s...howtopic=334942 but where it looks if the Tab Action x exists in uix.ini. If it does display it!

This way you could define the order and what each does, just add new options to the MenuAction and MenuLaunch functions to do different things like run xbe at location x, go directly in the games menu instead of going trough the hard drive menu (this might be messy because of transitions between menu screens), etc...

This would give alot of flexibility to the main dash menu and options could be easily added by most end users!

How about the fourth tab does not link directly to an app but an easily configurable "short cut" menu

I voted other because I think the button should be customizable. Make it available in the config that you can have it launch any of these already listed programs and also have a custom option where you can specify the xbe you want to run. That way everyone is happy! smile.gif

The update will contain an option to add a 4th button an set it to launch an xbe.
It uses the filemanager to select an xbe to use as well. So be patient and wait for the update.

Disregard this sh... I just mixed up the fourth tab with the fourth icon.

Sorry. Too much beerchug.gif ??

LiketHc.

-------------------------- cut that off!!! ----------------------------------------------------------


Just bring the fourth tab in and let the people configure it (see the "code" threads for detail). For me the tabs should be assigned with the following functions:

Tab #1: Memory
Tab #2: Music
Tab #3: Harddrive
Tab #4: Settings

The default tab after starting up UIX should be Tab #3.

Regards LiketHc.

Well theres alot of talk about infinite tabs check the code section for a "6 tab menu" thread. The beta pics on the last few pages look promising. So why settle for 4 and chose a default when u can have all-of-the-above.

I say other. I would like to have it point to another area to select various programs like the hard drive button does now. You see I have my games broken up like this Dos, xbox, consoles, arcade, homebrew. so as it is now I have no room for my apps icon in the hard drive menu.. unless I am missing something on how to add one.
