And if we really try to use that width, the result will become completely unreadable on a traditional TV set with composite video. So if we add new resolutions we must still limit much of the functionality to the old resolutions, for compatibility with the majority of users. Thus adding a lot of new info columns to the FileBrowser (as 1024 pixels would allow) is not a good idea, as that would not fit into the lower rez display.
The only real use we should make of it is to increase the size of some fields already implemented, such as the displayable filename length in FileBrowser, visible text row width in TextEditor etc. That will work fine as we are only varying how to display info already implemented for the current resolutions.
I haven't done much with it either, except for my recent tests with recompiling it to exclude internal support for jpg and other picture formats. This eliminates some dependencies of the lib which really do not matter for uLE, but which would make other applications that don't use such picture formats have their elfs bloated by inclusion of those additional libs. So eliminating those dependencies was necessary to create a lib setup suitable for such projects as FMCB and its configurator, where such bloat would be unacceptable.Although don't hold me to it. The gsKit is not something I tend to involve myself with as that's more Polo's thing.
The script changes for this recompilation of gsKit are quite simple:
This will be included (both in setup.sh and a separate script) in the next uLE release I make, which will hopefully be rather soon, though I first need to merge in some of FMCB's CDVD recognition methods to improve the MISC/PS2Disc command.Code:unset LIBJPG && unset LIBTIFF && unset LIBPNG cd $PS2DEV/gsKit && make clean && make all && make install
My goal for this is that it should be able to handle all the same disc cases as FMCB's FastBoot. So with an audio-disc it should invoke OSDSYS for the audio CD player, with an ESR-patched disc it should auto-launch ESR (requires new CNF entry too), and so on...
