actually, UNLOADALLSCREENS does reaload the menu.skin
menu.skin must be loaded at all times for RR to work
from the history.txt
* Skincommand; "UNLOADALLSCREENS", now unloads ALL screens, and reloads menu.skin and current screen
+ Skincommand; "RELOADALLSCREENS", unloads all screens, and reloads all of the screen that where loaded
unloadallscreens, is a basic flush from memory, its not really needed in 99% of the cases "reloadallscreens" will do
just give me an reason why you need/want to do this?

i can always change "unloadallscreens" to not unload menu.skin, and current...
course thats not "all" screens :)
since no one is using this command as of now, its still quite in flux
When the font colours (currently only do font colours and not font types yet) are changed, the variable that is used is set to whatever colour.
And now this will work fine for any screens which have not been already viewed.
Reloadscreen allows me to see the changes immediately in current screen. SO that is sorted.
Ok now I have a choice
1.do I leave it asis and all screens already loaded are the old colour and new screens get the new colour
2. issue a reloadskin which will then set the colours right but means reloading all the plugins and settings from the ini's amd have the menu pop up.
Hence the request of unloadallscreens which would clear them so that the new colours would be in place and I wouldn't see the menu skin, the plugins wouldn't reload and the skini.ini and rr.ini wouldn't be reread. (I knew that unloading the menu.skin would be difficult, hence I said don't reload it, also my menu screen is my only screen where the labels can' be changed).
I don't want skin.ini to be read because there are settings changed in there that I only want to happen on next load of skin.
Can I suggest, seeing as unloadallscreens and reloadallscrens are very similar, that
Reloadallscreens does just that
unloadallscreens unloads all screens apart from menu and current. (hell it can even unload menu and current if it likes, just not reread the skin.ini and rr.ini and reload plugins)

ok, so you want to toss your changes?
but since you only did reloadscreen, no changes on other screens would have effect anyway
now a assume your doing some preview, and not actually saving the changes into skin.ini
so im still a little confused, i can make "unloadallscreens" unload all screens except menu.skin and current, or it could unload all expect menu.skin, and do a reload of current
since "reloadallscreens" meets the typical needs...
that leaves "unloadallscreens" open to some interpretation, but taking it literally is what it does now ALL screens are unloaded, menu.skin is reloaded, followed by current
The reason I requested and/or called it 'unloadallscreens' is because
1. I thought unloading all the screens couldn't be done as it had been stated before the menu.skin could not be unloaded (maybe you have found a way it can now) and since I could already reload current screen there was no need to include the current screen.
2 having a command called unloadallscreensexceptmenuandcurrent seemed a bit long. ;)
Basically I just need a command the clears all the screens currently loaded so that they are freshly loaded again when the skin next goes to them (I don't care what the command will be called) and doesn't reread any of the ini's
BTW sort this out and I will then start pestering about my iList question. :p
well i have not tryed the unloadallscreens and reverse much , but i wouold like to congrat you mitch this is great cmd i'll be using this 1 alot , as well as ifvar cmd
ok, i will have "UNLOADALLSCREENS", unload all but menu.skin and current
"RELOADALLSCREENS" currently unloads all screens, then reloads them(for speed)
granted im not sure one needs them loaded back in, but i guess thats the point of a preload
Mitch, itīs possible to add a feature on the slider?
A wav sound for each movement, maybe the same option as for image:
one sound or a sound_*.wav where you can choose a sound for each step...
That would be great for my radar proximity bar...
