User Interaction Delay:
This is the time in seconds MPDisplay will stay in Menu, if you e.g. are playing Music and scrolling through the music folders to search for the next title you want to play.

 


Display

Available Displays:
Here you can set which Display should be used for MPD++.

...

You can choose between Automatic and Custom Resolution. Custom Resolution should be used if you don't want to display MPD++ on the whole Display.

 


Other

Process Priority:
Set the Priority of MPDisplay++ Process.

...

Enable System Info:
If you want to use MPDisplay++ to stay allways on the second screen (you have to do this coding by yourself for the look of the scrren that should show up - see SkinDoc how to do this) there are several MPD++ Tags to display CPU, RAM and some more SystemInfo's).
Log Level:
If everything runs fine you can set this to None - if you encounter any errors you should set this to verbose. The Log files can be found under: C:\ProgramData\MPDisplay++\Logs

 


Skin Settings Configuration

 


Skin:
Choose wich Skin do you want to use or click on the Pencil on the right and make your own Skin.

...

Text Scrolling:
Here you can set if you wish to enable text scrolling in general. Otherwise the settings in the window xml- files will be used.

 


AddImage Settings

 


You can use this Setting if you need gfx- folders outside MPDisplay++ images folder. In this case there are all possible ClearArt folders outside MPDisplay. You may use this function also for own fanarts, etc.)

You may use a self defined Tag also more than one time if your gfx- files are in different folders (in Standard settings all folders of MePo- Tools and DVDArt are set).

*Will be available in Version 0.9.7...*
