    1. I really like the new logo.
      What about also add a link to PSX-Scene as it was previously?
      [​IMG]
      Or even additionally add PSX-Place?

      Something like this:
      OPL
      OFFICIAL OPEN PS2 LOADER
      GET IT FREE AT
      PSX-SCENE.COM or PSX-PLACE.COM

    2. Change distance in Settings while widescreen is off.
      I mean, when I'll load my translation without enabled widescreen at default display mode, menu looks like a mess:
      [​IMG]

      With widescreen on at Settings, everything seems to be fine:
      [​IMG]

    3. Change order of settings at main page:
      [​IMG]

    4. Does this theme (Korium) will now be default?
      I mean it also looks rad, but what will happens with plasma?

    At this point the idea was, if you’re seeing the logo you already have OPL and know where to get it for free.. it’s been around long enough :-p .. just looks a bit cleaner and polished without that line.

    Correct! :) , plasma is still visible on both submenus and in all dialog windows so it is not lost. Additionally it is also possible for custom themes to still use only plasma if they wish.

    Theoretically my intention was not to only get it, but also give a link for support.
    Many people remember PSX-Scene as a place to leave its feedback,
    unfortunately "golden days" of that forum are long gone, mainly because of a bad management,
    registration issues... and many other problems.

    Because of these problems people are disgusted to post anything.

    Official feedback for this project started at that (PSX-Scene) site, so many people can still remember it.
    PSX-Place is quite new, so not everybody knows about it.
    There is also GitHub...

    There are probably other sites from where this project can be downloaded,
    but does someone who is posting any news about it is leaving any "root" of source?

    As always it is only a suggestion, I really like that still someone is working on that that project, so I'll repeat it once again:
    THANKS.

    Best regards.

    I don't mind the idea of adding another line saying something like: PSX-SCENE • PSX-PLACE or similar.

    If @Berion wants to add that we can see how it looks.

    Can play around with suggestions 2 and 3. Won't be today though, our sister is getting married :-p

    I'm sorry @jolek but adding another lines will overcomplicated the minimalistic style.

    IMO, this could fit nicely in the About / credit screen.

    Nice work btw guys. Will test that soon.

    Based on the photo that I've made I don't know if there will be enough space for additional verses.
    Maybe smaller font can "fix" that?

    BTW In Coders nicknames like Krah & Tupakaveli after so many updates can be also added.

    I've also notice that new version currently takes 1300 KB.
    Previous version (1406) was almost ~250 KB smaller (1051 KB):
    [​IMG]
    Probably because of a new theme.

    It is fair enough. I just only want to know how it looks like. ;) Thanks.

    So, if we don't have scroll or something like that, then maybe replace "Build Options"? Something like home project sites: psx-scene.com & psx-place.com. But to be honest, do we really need such tag? ;)

    Main Menu w/ w/o hdl svr

    could probably fit one more line in about page, but yea not sure if it’s needed? One of us can try it out and see how it looks.

    Or you wanted to know if you're still up there. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Looks really good.
    If it can be tested, why not at least try it?
    Something sort: Support at PSX-Scene.com & PSX-Place.com.

    Or even: Support at PSX-Scene.com, PSX-Place.com & GitHub\ifcaro.

    I've notice strange thing.
    I mean when I'll add e.g. mode 3+6 for any game in this version,
    reboot OPL launch older version (e.g. 1392) I'll have additionally enabled mode 7+8 (so 3+6+7+8) in compatibility modes.

    @jolek

    What do you think about using Roboto-Condensed font for Polish translation? It's currently Roboto-Regular.

    PAL - Widescreen Off

    Thanks will try it in free time.

    Looks really good, give me some time for tests, currently I'm quite busy.
    I'll try to check it at Friday.

    Best regards.

    EDIT: Something is wrong with HDLServer,
    I mean when I'll Enable Write Operations (On), HDLServer is not showing at main menu.

    Currently only value (e.g. 20) next to "Automatic HDD Spin Down" (Automatyczne Zwalnianie Obrotów HDD)
    is a little bit shifted to the right with this new font, so it looks a lot better than before.
    Tried font with AUTO (PAL 576i) without widescreen on SCPH-77004.

    While I like Berion's theme and I also think the theme needs some updates, I am not sure if replacing the current internal theme with Korium is the right choice.

    But some other changes are definitely good tho'...
