. I like the minimal look
. I hope you continue to post progress reports - it's good it get an insight into what goes into the development something like this. Congratulations on getting a OpenBox forum as well (is that the offical name now?) - hopefully it will provide an enviroment where people can get involved with this project.
. I'll try to post progress reports whenever there's something cool finished or to see.
I think openbox is the official name, it's a bit better than "opendash"
As things progress (probably after a beta release) there will be a lot of discussion as to what is missing to make it complete, but my plan is to keep it pretty limited in scope: it's a dash, not an everything-plus-the-kitchen-sink app.
looks great, it looks like ur're moving toward evox functionality which is great. exactly what the scene needs. update regularly I'll be waiting to test. also does it use a cache? the same as the last version? will they conflict?
EDIT: looks like it works with a debug bios and xig2 now?
Thanks! to be honest the WIP name for the dash was "revolution-x" but I don't think it's appropriate
. It caches filenames on the fly, and it's pretty fast. You will have a choice if you want the menu's to scan the XBE's for game name (a bit slower), or just use the directory name (like the opendash beta does, which is faster). The caches won't conflict since they're just used at runtime.
Actually I never tried running it in a debug bios or anything of that sort - I just used my tv capture card.
