Trigger Navigation And....
Posted 20 February 2007 - 09:29 PM
1. I was wondering though, if it would be possible somehow to fix the keymap.xml so that you could navigate left and right between blades using the triggers (like the 360 does with the trigger buttons)? i know the triggers are used to scroll up and down when in a file list (which i like and wouldn't want to lose), but while on the main blades only, would it be possible to use the triggers to go left and right? and then when in music or videos or whatever the triggers would scroll.
Can it be done? not a big deal but it would be cool.
2. The other thing i was thinking about was the possibity of changing the gamertag info from gamertag to weather, to system info, now playing etc. by selecting it and then pushing left and right on the D pad. I don't know if this has even been done already. as far as i know the only way to change it is in the guide blade, but you're stuck with your choice. Would this be possible?
Just ideas not complaints. I love the skin.

2. Tried it, was annoying as hell. If you leave focus on the gamercard and switch back to that blade, its annoying when it just keeps cycling through the gamercards, so we moved it to its own guide blade for ease. Also everytime you do it, the skin writes an option to your settings. So if you where constnatly doing it, it can greatly improve the risk of screwing up your settings file and screw up XBMC, and you have to use a bootdisk to boot into something else other than XBMC. So basically, its too unstable because of the functionality of actually changing. If we loaded all that information in hidden, so it wasnt a save issue, it was just a visibility switch, it would kill navigation speeds, because of all the gamercard stuff having to be loaded into the main menu. Just stick with one per card, I have weather on XBMC Live, Drive info on Games and gamercard on media.

And actually, now that you mention it, Spaceman, i think i did try that a long time ago but had a problem with it. it wasn't working well or something ( i can't remember). Maybe i'll try it again.
Thanks for the responses guys.
