[SUGGESTION] Another Menu

#1
Star 
It could be nice to have another new menu (like multiplayer,...)
This menu could have the following content:

[MAPS]
- new ones
- highest rated
- search all maps

[DEMOS]
- 1on1
- interesting Stuff
- ...

[SCREENSHOTS]???

I'm confused as to what this is for. You can browse maps in 'Create' tab, view demos under 'Demos', etc.
We could include some screenshots in another folder with the download (next to data, server, Docs, extra, etc.)

No! I was thinking of all maps! their dl-links could be uploaded to a official server. Like a (m)ap(p)-store Big Grin
The same with the demos
but the demos shouldn't be all! Wink only some HOT STUFF (clan battles/ kojn vs. nowego4 xD)

You man, an ingame system to download maps/demos/screens you like? Also to let users rate this 5h1+ so others can see if it's good stuff or not?

So like a library of maps + good demos that the player can download? Sounds good to me Smile

I think this is a bit too excessive for this kind of game.

Personally i think this could be better managed with a nice web interface and a xonotic-firefox plugin. Big Grin

That requires the Xonotic kernel module.

A web browsing plugin sounds like a lot of work, instead it wouldn't be to hard to make a "Recently played" section that would browse your dlcache.

I would suggest instead to replace the original "demos" menu with one called "media" --

Where it essentially displayed multiple different types of media in sub-categories/tabs. There's only a few problems with this idea though...

#1: Screenshots really aren't possible for a menu right now. When the menu loads an image into memory, it can never unload the image.. so you essentially would fill your vram with tons and tons of images if you start browsing an image folder. Also: The images take a while to load into the memory of the menu, and this normally wouldn't be a problem except for the fact that it makes the entire menu freeze whilst doing this (as it doesn't have an extra thread to load it)

#2: Browsing maps from a repository is..... very very difficult at best. Instead I would actually go with nowego4's idea to do a "recently played" system for dlcache maps, and also to simply display ALL maps added into your data directory.. This could solve the problem of "I want to copy maps from my dlcache into my data directory" too.. but not sure if this is a good idea from a technical stand point or not.

BTW, using the xonotic autobuild-bsp system is not acceptable for such a repository. Those maps may be broken (and often are), so they need to be manually inspected to make sure they're okay.

#3: Demos which are separated in such a way... I really don't know how to do this, but maybe some kind of flag could be set by the game code explaining what type of demo it is. (Probably not, though)

All in all, we're rather stuck when it comes to this.... X_X
