Thanks to Otmanix's awesome guide, I've started compiling my own builds of PMS. Love the program, been using it for years, but I was always annoyed that I kept waiting on others to give me quicker versions of the latest code. No longer having to do that. Thing is, for like one version way back, you guys had the GUI on the status page perfect for my 1366x768 laptop's resolution so there were no scroll bars, no nothing but just pure page fitting perfectly. I think I read that someone complained it didn't work right in another OS (not Windows 7) and so it was changed back to the way it originally was. Well, I tinkered with the photos and reduced every image file to 75% their original size, including power and renderer icons, which gave me back a status screen without scroll bars, etc. I adjust the icons when they are changed, but so far my microIcon version (as I call it) seems to work well for the picky me.
In particular, I reduced the photo that always shows up just below "status" (aka ps3slim_243.png and the other icons that correspond to this location) to 50% less because all it does is show you if you found a PS3 or not. I'm wondering now... why even have that image there? What purpose does that giant PS3 icon serve at this point?
We already have a list of all the renderers that are being detected, so I'm not sure why we need a giant PS3 if there is a PS3 detected when we already have a PS3 icon below that also tells us its detected and then even gives us the connection speed? Removing that redundant image would really clean up the status screen and might even give you room to add an option to combine status and a "lighter" version of trace that just gives info on when PMS starts a file using TSmuxer vs mencoder vs whatever, etc. That is, more status, less pictures.
Anyways, thanks for all that you guys do with this project and I'll keep making my microIcon version if I have to. Just thought I'd toss out the feedback and let you guys do what you will with it.
