Add options to the 'Play File' dialog

Hi guys,

I've just discovered the 'Play File' dialog for the main menu in Aeon Nox.

Having gone into the settings I can see a few options for picking a location, but none of those are my USB drive.

How do I add that as an option?

(The idea being that when I have people round, if they want to bring a film on USB, we can tell openPHT to play it without adding it to the library.)

Cheers.

In OpenPHT 1.7 something much better than the Play File option has been added (I’ve never been a fan of “Play File”). The next version of Aeon Nox already has support for it, and I think it’ll meet your needs as described above.

Ooh…! I wait it’s release with baited breath!

In the meantime, my friends with have to bring actual discs round :slight_smile:

Until the official release there is both a “prerelease” version of OpenPHT 1.7 available, and a BETA of the next Nox 5.3.0 which has the file manager available. And I have to apologize, it appears that USB drives aren’t working in the new file manager yet (I wasn’t aware when I wrote my previous post to you). That’s on the OpenPHT end rather than the skin end, however.

Ah darn! I think the USB feature is the only thing I need. Oh well, I can wait until OpenPHT gets it working :slight_smile:
