« on: December 07, 2019, 07:50:16 AM »

this is in the layout.txt

could someone show me how you would scrip this!   

i just want it to display a different filter than the one im on,  in text on the screen...

<a name="game_info" />
#### `fe.game_info()` ####

    fe.game_info( id )
    fe.game_info( id, index_offset )
    fe.game_info( id, index_offset, filter_offset )

Get information about the selected game.


   * id - id of the information attribute to get.  Can be one of the
     following values:
      - `Info.Name`
      - `Info.Title`
      - `Info.Emulator`
      - `Info.CloneOf`
      - `Info.Year`

      - `Info.PlayedCount`
      - `Info.PlayedTime`
      - `Info.FileIsAvailable`
      - `Info.System`
      - `Info.Overview`
   * index_offset - the offset (from the current selection) of the game to
     retrieve info on.  i.e. -1=previous game, 0=current game, 1=next game...
     and so on.  Default value is 0.
   * filter_offset - the offset (from the current filter) of the filter
     containing the selection to retrieve info on.  i.e. -1=previous filter,
     0=current filter.  Default value is 0.

im dealing with an ishu with the shuffle module...

when using the new shuffle, and letter skipping alphabet,,,   it is moving up & down

the old shuffle module is working fine not moving..around like new one

any chance new shuffle can be fixed? in the latest shuffle module :)

iv tried to add vid of it but utube not uploading at the moment..hope this make scene
