A way to show previous and next playlist?
« on: January 25, 2021, 11:56:31 PM »
I have this layout work expect for one aspect. In a normal menu, you see two games previous to your selection and after your selection, a standard wheel. is there a way to also do this with playlist? see what playlist will appear by pressing either the next or previous playlist buttons?
see attached.

Ill look into it, but its much easier and flexible to turn them into sub collections instead. This would also allow you to create a favorites list of each playlist.

This is one of the few features the frontend lacks for me and something I've requested in the past.

A menu for playlists is much better in terms of presentation and ease of use. Tapping the next/prev keys is pretty clumsy if you have more than a few playlists.

although, playlist enter/exit animations can be cool when cycling them.

Theres an offset parameter in the code too, but I never tested if it actually works to be honest.

Well, I've started development for this feature. It's not as easy as it may sound, since menu structure support is quite distributed in the code, but I'll get there eventually. :)

This will be something, please let me know if you need a tester :)
