Faster scroll in the filenames OSD menus.

Postby javidoom » Tue Feb 23, 2016 10:03 am

Hi!

I've been using Mist for a while, and I use a lot long filenames... Including name, year, version, developer, disc number, cracked by, etc... and the scroll for the names, is imho, too slow, I have to wait several seconds for the menu to show the last part of the name, in which I'm interested (ex: number of disc or cracked version etc...)

So, is there any option, or can be it be modified in the mist.ini to make the scroll a little faster?

Thanks!
Regards.

I had a similar concern, however in the end I loaded a directory listing into Excel and tweaked it to reduce the filenames down to be Game name, Publisher, Version (AGA, if relevant) and disk number, then make that into a bat file to rename the files.

Maybe I should produce a proper program to un-TOSEC the file names!

Hi!

It's a solution, but involves too much work the rename of thousand roms, atari, amiga, spectrum, etc etc... And I would lose relevant information about the rom played..

Regards.

Hi,

I've changed scroll delay from 50ns to 10ns at osd.c:

Code: Select all

#define SCROLL_DELAY 1000
#define SCROLL_DELAY2 10

Here you have last firmware with changes:

Firmware-160324-fastscroll

Cheers ;)

That's really cool, but I hope the change gets incorporated in all future versions :)
