Language select with dialog

Was this page helpful?

    Purpose

    • Required:  Yes
    • Type of Change:  Bug Fix

    Currently if you wish to Switch Languages in MP in the settings screen, you must cycle through every language until you get to the one you want to select. This could mean that a user had to cycle throw a lot of languages until he would reach his choice. Since the language was loaded on select, the user also had to wait for a few moments between every change. With 1.2 the selection is done with a dialog, so the user can directly scroll to the target language.

    Description of Change

    The currently used selectbutton has been changed into a standard button which opens a dialog.

    Please note that a skin change is required: in settings_general.xml the type tag of language button (id 11) must be changed from selectbutton to button.
