Great work! I like the main menu and the selector is quite pretty, too  ;)

One thing you should change is swapping left/right on the main menu: Every sane person would press right to select the next item on the right side of the current one.
Make sure to update your skins (PS4, PSNext, PSNextDark, OldBoy and Zelda) with the latest version from time to time:

It would be nice once it can be used on startup i can do two seperate firmwares and the user can choose which one to flash great work jack.

Nice can't wait to go home and try...  this is just a thought but since your using python look into the Ken Barnes effect for backgrounds or parallax effect which ever one is easier.  It adds a little motion to things.  Keep it up it looks nice.

Gmenu next is progressing rapidly and I can not keep up, but from time to time I'm still working on PyMenu

Here is ALPHA2 of PyMenu


New in this release:

- Resume after launching
- fixed folder bug
- added new layout options
- swapped left/right on main menu
- added descriptions for native apps

https://github.com/JackD83/PyMenu/archive/ALPHA2.zip

Installation RS97:

1. You need the custom firmware for your device. Follow the guides listed here:
https://jutleys.wixsite.com/retrogamers97-90 , I recomend the external version

2. Extract the zip next to the gmenu2x folder. (Can only be accessed by using a cardreader. Gmenu2x has its own partition). Folder has to be named "PyMenu"

3. run PyMenu/python/install.dge to install python

4. PyMenu can be run by starting PyMenu/run.sh

5. If you want to make it your default launcher, run PyMenu/installer/install.dge. This can currently only be undone by reflashing the cfw (or replacing the "main" script with the backup if you know what you are doing)

Tested on cfw 2.0

Suspend is not working yet? as the backlight stays on until you power off thanks.

Oh, should have mentioned that suspend is not yet implemented and was only a test for the config menu  ::)

USB could also be broken. I use a cardreader to access the partitions

Try edit the config file in gmenu2x min vol 70 change to 100 just remember the image is work in progress and PyMenu is still alpha.

I hope so. Problem with the K3P is not the menu, but the emulators that need to be adapted to the 480x272 resolution.

I will upload a new video this evening that you get an impression of the current state. jutley did a great job of configuring everything. Thanks for that!

I also will check the default volume. You can edit the run.sh file and change the volume yourself. Currently its set to 100, but I think the range goes up to 255

Is there an internal firmware for 2.1 or 2.0? Or will it be one?
Many thanks!
