    - Pressing the Mute button to unmute does not work. Have to hit the VOL+ button which does not set the volume back to the same level.
    - When running an External App (Notepad), music stops playing...
    - Volume is not the same between mode (Music, Video, DVD) (Config.ini shows individual volumes for Audio and Video)
    - Fullscreen vis goes back to Audio when track is finished and next one starts

    Feature request:
    - Start where I left off. If I was playing music then the music should be playing when the program starts/computer start
    - I like the Auto-Fullscreen Vis but a mini bar would be nice. (ie. single click the screen while Fullscreen Vis to bring up a bar for volume, next, prev, mute functions).
    - Hide cursor (editiable in config.ini...)
    - Ability to set the timeout for Fullscreen Vis. Sometimes it seems too quick and starts up when I am still doing stuff.

    I'll play with iGuidance in it tomorrow and see how that turns out. All in all, it's looking good. Keep up the good work.

    PS. The new installer still says 1.0c instead of 1.0d
    Wow! Thats great information and I can tell you were really looking at it. I appreciate the insite. Here is an explanation of each of the issues you noticed.

    - The scroll bar flickers as it advances.
    Explanation: This is due to the graphics technique used, and unfortunately wont be changed.
    - In External Programs, when moving the mouse over any buttons causes text to flicker. (Path:, Image:, Title:, Path to GPS Program Executable:, & MI logo but NOT Windows Notepad & C:\Program....\FreeDrive.exe or Now Playing Info/Volume)
    Explanation: Will Look into making it smoother, This doesn't occur on a touch screen as there is really no mouse movement, just the cursor position change.
    - In Images, VOL# flickers when moving mouse over buttons
    Explanation: Will Look into making it smoother, This doesn't occur on a touch screen as there is really no mouse movement, just the cursor position change.
    - Pressing the Mute button to unmute does not work. Have to hit the VOL+ button which does not set the volume back to the same level.
    Explanation: Will fix this.
    - When running an External App (Notepad), music stops playing...
    Explanation: I designed it specifically this way, because if someone opens a game or other program that has sound, it will cause problems in the audio.
    - Volume is not the same between mode (Music, Video, DVD) (Config.ini shows individual volumes for Audio and Video)
    Explanation: I designed it this way specifically because some DVD's or Movies have different desirable levels, but it saves the last level it was left at for each. I leave the volume on 100 on everything, and control the volume with my head unit anyway.
    - Fullscreen vis goes back to Audio when track is finished and next one starts
    Explanation: This has proven to be the most unstable part of the program, It doesnt crash or anything, but it is inconsistent. I could create a second form, but then it would make the program too much the same as several other front ends.

    Now for your requests:
    - Start where I left off. If I was playing music then the music should be playing when the program starts/computer start
    Explanation: The program should already do this. If you are in the audio module and you come out to the main menu and then go to the video module, then it should save the song, it position, and the level of volume and the same occurs if you go from video to audio, or exit the program from any of the screens.
    - I like the Auto-Fullscreen Vis but a mini bar would be nice. (ie. single click the screen while Fullscreen Vis to bring up a bar for volume, next, prev, mute functions).
    Explanation: The function that Im using is the windows media player fullscreen feature and unfortunately doesnt allow for a mini bar. It does however make the cursor invisible when it is set to full screen in both video and audio.
    - Hide cursor (editiable in config.ini...)
    Explanation: Good Idea: I will create that option in the skin chooser form. Look for this in the next version.
    - Ability to set the timeout for Fullscreen Vis. Sometimes it seems too quick and starts up when I am still doing stuff.

    Thank you for all the information.

    ___RASMUS_Video.mpg
    Black Eyed Peas - Let's Get It Started.avi
    Mudvayne_-_Happy_-_videopimp.mpeg
    Nina Sky feat. Jabba - Move Ya Body.mpeg
    The two files that are not shown are the Mudvayne and Nina Sky videos, both of which are .mpegs. MI plays them fine but does not display them in the list.

    This was a small problem, This is fixed, look for it in the next version. Thanks for the info.

    New version

    Will test as soon as it's available.

    It would be very nice if the N64 emulator was touch screen friendly. I've been looking for somethink like that for a while.
    Spent all my money on carputers now I have to work a real job.

    N64 Emulator

    The initial setup of the N64 Emulator isnt touch screen friendly, but once it is all set up, all you have to do to run a game is to double tap on it in the rom selector window. I have a 7 inch T-View touch screen, and its not too bad to double tap on one of the rom files in the list, even though its small.
