[13 Aug 2009] mode selector

Hi!

Using the @DISPLAY preprocessor mode="ask" tag I found it the mode selector window could be a bit confusing for end users. The window has a name "Hollywood" instead of the scripts window name. Mac and win platforms do nothing for manual screenmode select.

I think it would be great if we can somehow customize that window. An additional optional function maybe could let the user select a desired language. However such a selector window would be obsolete if we could change displaymode by the script.

What is your opinion?

Ok, I'll change this.

Yes, because they don't have a screenmode requester and I'd have to write a custom one. Maybe in a future version :)

This will be supported by the next Hollywood version :)
