    hi devs... last night I posted in graphics & skins about the(according to me) wrong use of the scrollable menu. but I there got informed that the way the main menu behaves is out of their hands.
    So, here comes my request:
    Make the scrollable menu the way a scrollable menu is ment to be. either remove the transparency when the images is not in the center(because it get´s hard to see which menuitem that you´ve selected). or, the way which I prefer:, make the selected item stay in the center all the time.



    Or perhaps it would be possible to have the choice when skinning how the menu should behave? add a property where you could choose between scrollable, non-scrollable(up to the skinner to make this work with many menu-items) and centered?

    thanks for listening

    it was this way in the beginning, feels very unnatural.

    Meedio has it this way now and I can point you to someone wanting it the way we have it now.

    We can't please all.

    The transparency is something we can discuss about to get rid off.
    We may tweak it here and there some for .1

    I like the transparency effect.
    But I see a broad support for centering the item to select.

    Behaviour would then be more like one of those wheels of a fruit-machine.
