Hello!! I'm new in the forum (sorry about my bad english
frown.gif
)
I wanted to ask you about "Akaio". Is it possible to invert the touchscreen scrolling? I wish I could "drag" and not "push" (that is the impression I get when I use it XD) the menu, but I find no option to do so.

Thank you very much in advance

I know exactly what you want, it's very clear and understandable.
However, that feature isn't implemented in AKAIO. I think something like that (the Moonshell2 scrolling) would be relatively easy to do, since I think it's just an inverted version of the normal scroll, so you might want to request it here: http://www.akaio.net/forum/viewforum.php?f=5

He wants to be able to scroll the screen like you would on an iPod Touch, by dragging it. When you move your finger right, the screen moves left.

and i want to find chicken wings in california served with real blue cheese and not some dressing or ranch alternative. then again i'd be happy that when i ask for hot sauce they don't bring me tabasco (pepper water).

i don't really see the point of this request or how it betters akaio in any way? its just a personal preference and not one shared by normmatt, the developer.

-another worldKey word was "inverted".
Maybe if you spent more time reading rather than making pointless replies you would have picked up on that.
(Also, you can drag anywhere on the screen)

Huh.. I didn't know Another World was Normmatt.
Isn't having two accounts on GBAtemp against the rules?

But seriously, you are not Normmatt, so you shouldn't speak for Normmatt.
They're SUGGESTIONS for a reason. If you don't like it DON'T USE IT! It really is that simple.

Dude take a chill pill, AW works closely w/ the AKAIO team. Plus he's staff, give him some respect and you don't to lecture him on the rules.

Lol twiztidsinz, not even hesitating to talk back to AW xD. Anyways, the OP does sort of have semi-decent reason. I mean, there isn't a displayed scrollbar like in Moonshell2 and it does give the impression that the things onscreen should scroll with the stylus rather than against it...but really it never bothered me much xD (the file browser is much faster anyways, so the point of adding the feature is pretty much for aesthetic purposes).

It wouldn't hurt to suggest for the feature, though I generally thought Normmatt added stuff based on functionality, dependability, and demand...but hey it does sound like something easy to add so who knows xD.

Seems that features being added is based on mood.

There was a suggestion to add a 'Recent' list made on the forums and one of the Moderators ripped into him about 'not helping pirates'.

I'd love the inverted option. That's one thing that pisses me off. So now I just press right on the D-Pad to skip, but still, I'd want the inverted scrolling. This way just feels backwards to me.

Wow! Later i don't revise this post and i saw in the forum of suggestions in Akaio that my post was deleted. I repost it and they close de post...

It's really THAT unviable to do that button?? Like others, I think it's something that can turn more enjoyable navegate by the menu, it isn't a problem with Up and Down like they told me... I'm really confused

PD: thanks for the "support" to my idea

@twizzletwat: i read it and i still don't understand why would someone want to scroll up for down and down for up. i still don't see how this would benefit akaio in anyway? fighting for the implementation of such suggestions means something else gets over looked or skipped. i'd rather see a gba cheat engine, the rts build i have made public, slow-mo added back in, frequent loader updates, the ap patching fixed so download play works, file renaming added, the 16byte gba save header removed, f2a support added, 3in1+ support updated, file hidden attribute on/off added, favorites added (instead of 1 shortcut), etc.

Dude, it's a preference that some people want. Just like how they add it in every shooter because some people prefer it. I would prefer to have it inverted when selecting my roms.

Why so serious dude?
I thought the "Suggestions" forum was for, yea, suggestions.

And I actually think OP's idea is pretty damn good. I've been missing this feature ever since I began using my Acekard.

Those are the kinds of things Normmatt isn't adding until the official team supports them.

QUOTE(Another World @ Oct 25 2010, 06:27 AM) frequent loader updates,
For that you can "blame" Rudolph... or at least Normmatt does.
Which I find kind of hypocritical since Normmatt cracked Moonshell2 to be able to launch commercial ROMs via EXTLINK after Moonlight removed it -- twice.

AP Patch fixed> Being worked on.
File renaming> Has been suggested (and pretty much ignored)
GBA Save Header> Haven't heard of it (Did you make a suggestion in the forums?)
F2A Support> Haven't heard of it (Did you make a suggestion in the forums?)
3in1+ Support> I think someone would need to have a 3in1+ and not just a 3in1, care to donate to Normmatt?
Set/Remove Hidden Attribute> Use XenoFile or DSOrganize 3.1129 for This + File Renaming
More favorites> Has been suggested, shot down and then raged on which seems to be par for the course over on the AKAIO forums.

The above reason is why I don't post on the AKAIO forums. I filled out a bug report (about the fact that AKAIO doesn't fall back to Secondary DNS if the Primary DSN fails) TO THE LETTER according to the guide it was ignored for a while then deleted. I'm pretty sure if I repost it someone from the AKAIO team will get butthurt over it and tell me 'well use the right settings' rather than fix a defect.
