LS, you there? You alright?
hey LS, i hope you're doing ok as well. we've all been eagerly waiting for the re-release and completely forgot you had other stuff going on.
when you do get a chance, i did have an idea for eliminating the issue of blank album art showing up for songs with no artwork. i believe guino has enabled transparent ilists in his newest version, so you could actually have the album art show up behind the ilist if it does exist, and if it doesnt, it wont be noticeable at all.
also, i had an idea for your history feature on the playlists. i think the problem right now is that the items are numbered, which can be kind of misleading. for example, if you are on playlist 3 at the moment, where does the new one get created, in slot 3 or always in the last slot 5? i think maybe a better way to do it would just to have a single button like CF that shows you the total number of current saved playlists, and every time you create a new one it gets saved. then hitting the button will just cycle through all the playlists in a 'clockwise' direction. so you could change the left/right buttons into cycle/delete buttons, where the cycle button jus loops through the list, and the delete button removes the current playlist from memory and loads up the next one.
i have noticed right now, that when i add a new playlist, and then hit back, it does go to the previous playlist just fine. the forward button works too. but anytime you get to the beginning or end of the cycle (i.e 1 or 5), everything starts misbehaving. thats why i think a circular fashion would be better and more intuitive. i found it very easy to use inside CF.
get well soon, and good luck!
EDIT: great news! both of the issues with iguidance closing and GE not working have been solved. all i had to do is increase the number of screens to store in memory. it was defaulted to 3 for some reason, so any time i visited 3 more screens afterwards, the gps screen would be closed out and i guess iguidance went with it. same thing with RREarth, except for whatever reason, the skin closing screwed up GE. i guess this is because the network link for gps suddenly disappeared and it ended up opening the gps dialog in GE and screwing everything up. so my question is this, is there any way to keep those two screens from ever leaving memory? i added them to the preload list (hopefully external_gps.skin and rrearth.skin are the correct ones), but i dont think there are 12 other screens i even visit to check if it is a permanent fix or not.
LS, you there? You alright?

everything is cool, just very busy. Havnt even had time to be online last few days.
my sleep schedule was all screwed up so ive been sleeping earlier than normal. Work, kids etc has had my hands tied past few days.
The re-release is just around the corner. Really only one thing left to do with a script.
It really could be released at any moment. I just need to steal some time from somewhere.
