Horizontal Game List Navigation
« on: April 25, 2016, 01:24:38 AM »
THE PROBLEM
I really like themes that have a horizontal list of games. The only problem is, new users using my cab move the joystick left and right to try and move the game list. I've changed the up/down keys to be left/right; but navigation in menus (which are in a vertical format) becomes counter-intuitive.

Proposed Solution
It would be nice to separate the game list navigation from the menu navigation in the controls section. This would allow keys  to be used in menus (up/down) separate from the keys used to navigate a games list (left/right).

I've looked at the source code but it is beyond my skill. Anyone else favor this proposal or have the skills to change the source code?

I've opened a feature request here: https://github.com/mickelson/attract/issues/216
