    dynamic transitions possible???

    I am trying to make transitions based on a screen gesture. For example swipe from right to left I want the screen to slide from the right to left when transitioning.

    Here is what I have tried so far.

    SETVAR;EFFECT;XX

    also tried it like this SETVAR;EFFECT;XX||RELOADSCREEN

    Then in each skin file where I want this to work I have:

    [ TRANSITIONS ]
    /EFFECTIN=$EFFECT$
    /EFFECTOUT=11
    /TRANSTIME=1
    /FORCEEFFECTS=TRUE

    also tried with /DISCARDABLE

    I have the effects set to 11 in rr.ini

    Any ideas how to make this work?

    Also tried SETVAR;TRANSITION;XX
    SETVAR;TRANSITIONIN;XX
    SETVAR;TRANSITIONOUT;XX

    None of these worked and I'm not sure why. I thought anything in rr.ini or skin.ini could be changed on the fly with a variable of the same name.

    For example I am pretty sure if you want a different background on each screen can't you SETVAR;BACKGROUND;XX before loading the next screen??? I would think what I tried with the SETVAR;TRANSITION;XX is the same type of thing.

    1st off

    /TRANSTIME=1
    /FORCEEFFECTS=TRUE
    goesin rr.ini or skin.ini

    [ TRANSITIONS ]
    /EFFECTIN=11
    /EFFECTOUT=11

    this bit goes in the skin file

    /Discarable removes the skin file from memory on close of that screen

    try this

    in skin file

    /Define ineffect $EFI$
    /Define outEffect $EFO$

    /Effectin=$inEffect$
    /Effectout=$outEffect$

    in skin.ini

    EFI=11
    EFO=11

    now to change the effect on fly
    setvar;efi;8||savetoskin;efi;8

    this cmd must be run before the screen appears

    double correction, these DO go in a skin file are related only to that screen

    /TRANSTIME=1
    /FORCEEFFECTS=TRUE

    Thank you for your help. I tried your solution with Blue's corrections and still did not work. I found that by using the definition, in the /effectin must have #efi# instead of $efi$.

    So where I am at now is i have created an includable file witch each skin that I want to transition which looks like this:

    /Define effects $eff$

    /EFFECT=#effects#
    /EFFECTIN=#effects#
    /Effectout=#effects#
    /FORCEEFFECTS=TRUE
    /TRANSTIME=3
    /DISCARDABLE

    I also found that if the screen is not discarded it will always do the transition that it did initially.

    I got this to work great except for when switching directions of the swipe. The very first switch it does the old transition, but the next switch in the same direction will do the correct transition. Here are my commands:

    SETVAR;EFF;3||wait;1||WEST
    SETVAR;EFF;4||wait;1||EAST

    Where EAST and WEST is defined in the exectbl.ini basically just telling it to load the screen on the left or right of whichever screen is current.

    Any idea why it does not change transitions when changing direction? Is this because RR must have atleast 3 screens in memory, one of which is the last screen visited, and therefore is not discarding it?

    Thanks again for any help and ideas.

    Is it possible to reload a single screen which you are not currently on?

    RELOADALLSCREENS seems to disable gestures all together

    also I am using the September 2011 release of RR if it makes a difference

    yeh $ - #

    my fault hit wrong key lol....

    not sure but if your useing /EFFECT=#effects# in your skin file as well as /EFFECTIN=#effects# and /Effectout=#effects#

    then /EFFECT=#effects# will be the default rr is looking at , and missing the other 2 defines , remove /EFFECT=#effects# from the skin file if present

    i'mtrying to understand your reason for this code , are you calling the same file each time , but sometimes from left sometimes from right , or is this 2 different skin files

    if 2 files why not just have the 2 defined effectin/out cmds in each skin file with the correct swipe you want ...

    you can't reloadscreen other than the scr your on.

    if discardable is present in the skin file the skin file will be cleared from memory on exit of that scr,, so next time you call that scr it will look again at the defined var in skin.ini and use that

    I am calling the same file each time just from left or right. Trying to make it more touch friendly like an ipad for example.

    So for example scrolling from the audio_player.skin to audio_browser.skin you would swipe from right to left, then to go back to the audio_player.skin you would swipe from left to right.
