Release Notes for 11/21/07 - Version 3.00.107

Changes

• Text.Sizable is drawn immediately on scene changes as opposed to a 1/2 second delay
• Improved CPU Usage on Text.TextList
• Improved CPU Usage on Text.Typewriter
• Improved CPU Usage on Text.FadeTextList


MLCMD syntax change:
MLText|ScrollUp~Layer~ButtonID# of Text.Sizable
> MLCMD: MLText|ScrollDown~Layer~ButtonID# of Text.Sizable


Where Layer can be: stage, remotefx, remotefx2


Bug Fix
• BackgroundFX and OverlayFX were not disappearing during Design/Edit mode in some cases


Release Notes for 11/09/07 - Version 3.00.105

BugFix
• Sometimes the buttons in the overlays were not getting removed when moving across scenes

Release Notes for 11/08/07 - Version 3.00.104

NOTES: There have been significant changes to the code in this version in order to support all the new features. Caution should be used when installing this version. Although we've tested this version and believe it to be working properly, it is recommended that users wait before implementing this version in a commercial install until any potential issues have been resolved.

Added

• Drastically improved speed performance when changing scenes - faster redrawing (Should improve performance as well on RDP clients). When changing FX layers between scenes, the FX layer would disappear/flash before displaying the newly loaded FX layer

• OverlayFX and BackgroundFX fields can now load MLS files as opposed to just SWF files - doubling the number of layered MLS files possible! In cases where it's an SWF file, the SWF will remain visible during EDIT/DESIGN mode. If an MLS is in that layer, it will disappear during EDIT/DESIGN mode.

• FXLayer fields in Scene Options panel now support dynamic variables (ie: {{mysceneName}})

BugFix

• The Letter "A" keyboard shortcut was not working

• MLCmds were not processing correctly from keyboard shortcuts in FX layers

• MusicLobby MLCmds weren't working

• MLGV MLCmds weren't working for GeoVision

Release Notes for 11/07/07 - Version 3.00.101

NOTES:

This update installs scenes into a new file/folder structure. This will not adversley affect existing users and help to better organize new users and their scenes. If you wish to view these new scenes you'll either need to move these files into your current Content folder or reassign your content folder. We've also moved all update.txt files into your Cinemar\Documentation folder. You'll also notice a new and improved installer that allows you to just install a very minimal installation of MainLobby. First Time installers Content Folder will now be set to: {app}\Content\0019\1024x768\

• Cinemar\Content\0019\800x480\

NOTES • MAINLOBBY CONTENT FOLDER

 With the capability to browse files on your system using relative paths, it's now easier than ever to share scenes and graphics with other MainLobby Users.  That is, omitting the path to the content directory. For example, a scene on your development system might be:

C:\Program Files\Cinemar\myScene.mls

If your MainLobby Content Folder is defined as: C:\Program Files\Cinemar\

When browsing for a scene under the Scene Options Panel, it will return:

myScene.mls instead of the full path.

Why is this helpful? It allows designers to not only share scenes with others, but also create subfolders per customer or per screen size.

In this release, you'll see we've included a new folder called CONTENT. Within that folder is another folder entitled: 800x480

By Defining your MAINLOBBY CONTENT FOLDER as: C:\Program Files\Cinemar\Content\800x480\

All relative paths will be based on this location now.

Designers can create subfolders within the Content Folder caller MrSmith, MrJones, etc. This allows their files to be better organized. Files such as DVDLobby.SWF and DVDLobby.ini will eventually support the capability for you to move them into these subfolders as well. However, as of this beta, all applications should continue to be stored in the same folder as mainlobby.exe. While they can be moved, any attempt to SAVE config changes to say DVDLobby and its respective ini file will be written to the same folder as mainlobby.exe resides. Updates for all applications are in development.

To further elaborate, let's assume you have specified your Startup Scene in MainLobby as: 0019_cable.mls

And lets assume your MAINLOBBY CONTENT FOLDER is configured as: C:\Program Files\Cinemar\

When MainLobby initially loads, it will load the following file: C:\Program Files\Cinemar\0019_cable.mls

If we change the MAINLOBBY CONTENT FOLDER to: C:\Program Files\Cinemar\Content\800x480\

And then save and Restart MainLobby, it will then load: C:\Program Files\Cinemar\Content\800x480\0019_cable.mls

This idea of Content folders will allow you to create multiple scenes in various sizes but maintain their same file names while keeping them in separate folders.

Our recommend approach for storing Scenes as of this writing is: C:\Program Files\Cinemar > CONTENT FOLDER > Scenefiles.mls > IMAGES FOLDER > Images.jpg
