You are right. When I can make out the line, then looking for a sign ":". Therefore, inside the line you can increase the intervals between the parameters. However, at the end of "technical title" spaces should not be!
would not work as too many spaces?? Could this be changed please so you search up to first colon : symbol when you parse and not assume always one space between parameters? This restriction was not stated before and it may cause much confusion. If you could change it that would mean I can arrange the entries better with comments.
Okay, I'll correct it
I would also strongly suggest you use root () rather than configfile /menu.lst in your example file for two reasons
I like this idea. I'll try to implement it.
...Could we have an OnOff setting for this please or ideally a setting for logos to load. ... This would mean faster loading as not all logos would be loaded. I could have a DOS menu and load say logo_01 Logo_02 and a linux menu which would only load logo_09.
First - a few general theses:
Gfxboot was the next step in the development of a text menu. At the same time, developers have the opportunity to write your own code to gfxboot. This issue, I tried to devote FPAV topic, but a lively discussion, did not happen. On the other hand gfxboot @DED-LEGO@, was developed as a tool for designers, not programmers, but I was trying to develop a modular approach in its code. Each module can disable dedxxxx.inc. Moreover it can be easily removed from the software kernel, if recompile the gfxboot @DED-LEGO@. However, the basic module ded0000.inc a high priority and without it the system will not work. This situation has developed historically. This means that from some of the decisions I will not give up.
Now review your list of requirements
-Implemented: 1, 2, 4, 5
-Item 3 can be implemented with the pictures, as the inscription "Merry Christmas!"
-Item 6 is already planned
-Items 7, 8, 11 can be solved by using the commands of GRUB4DOS. I mean the commands "default" and "timeout". Also planned alternative @DED-LEGO@'s behavior, when at boot time pressed Alt, Ctrl or Shift. In addition, some of the ideas about using nested menus can be discussed HERE
-Item 9 also can be solved by GRUB4DOS commands. However, on this issue, there are some ideas
-Item 10? Did you mean grub4dos action when you press the "e" or "c" key? Then first exit gfxboot @DED-LEGO@ by pressing Ctrl + End. Also instead of "c" you can use the menu item
