  • Suppressing the loader screen status reports?

    Well here we go again.
    Is there any way to make the loader screen not report what it is doing until roadrunner loads. My loader screen reports that it is “starting winamp”. I do not have any commands in my loader.skin file.

    I've read that there's a way of turning the splash screen off,wouldn't that suit your needs better? Have a look around the subjects been covered by guino and others in some depth.

      It has come to my attention that I can turn off the splash screen, but its not the splash screen I talking about, it's the loader screen that loads in front off RR until RR loads in the background. I want this loader screen in order to hide my desktop until RR has finished loading. What I don't want is the status messages that this loader screen shows. Is there any way to remove these messages.

        You can make a custom splash screen, and then simply not place the label for the status messages in it ... some skins use this custom loader screen freature.

          Guino I'm also using the custom loader screen feature but I still get the status messages. I do not have anything in my loader skin file apart from the name of the image.

            Then add a label for the status, and set it's Y position to something like -100 ... and it wont show..

              I added "status" label with a 0 pixel size and now it does not show

                  Does that make you the queen

                  Just messing with you. Anyways, I need some RR help. Its probably been answered but i cant find it and i stumbled onto this thread so here it goes.

                  How do you get the controlls to supress on a custom skin with an embeded aplication. I have my tv tunner embeded into a skin file but I wanted the controlles to go away like in video_player skin. or gps skin. All i did was copy the video_player skin and modify it with an aplication tag. Will this not work.

                    I'd like to know as well. I'd like to have my playlist editor pop-up upon button press at the audio_browser screen to maximize the real estate.

                      Actually, taking care of the status still leaves the version date (RRVER). This has been posted in other places in parts, but here's the final skin file:

                      Don't know why stumbling onto this thread is relevant, seems like a new thread to me.
