This is a probably a noobish question, but i am new and i am running the [noir]v2.0 theme and i cant play any games without the toolbar flickering in the top...how can i hide it?!
make a !bang command to hide everything in the script file, then assign the !bang to a hotkey using hotkey.dll
if you need more explanation on how to do this, reply.
The problem lies in when you have a module
always on top.
It will draw on top of your 3d games
Just kill litesep thru ctl alt del
or mod the theme to not have the modules on top
that may be hard to do with noir
or try what mojo suggested
Thanks a whole lot.....the bang! kind of confuseses me because im new. I'll read the tutorials. Mojo is it quick or easy to do it your way? Thanks
there was actually another thread about this same problem with a second solution: create another theme, just for gaming. just include a desktop module, and set up hotkey's for each of your games. I haven't tried it yet-I stopped running LS at home a while back because of this exact problem. I had tried setting up bangs to hide all my modules, but couldn't get it to work.
oh, thanks deuce What i am doing is just switching the theme when wanting to play a game:-/
(not sure if that was a question or reply) In regards to my post, yes. Switch to the theme that only has the desktop module loading, then load up the game using the hotkeys. when you're done with the game, switch back to your normal theme. plus, I just remembered, you also need to load the hotkey.dll, otherwise they won't work. duh! I should try getting more sleep...
i still say that making a bang for the theme to hide all/show all is the easiest way to go.
mojo, I'm not disagreeing at all. it's a lot simpler, and quicker, if (and here's the kicker) you know what you're doing with bangs enough to get it working. if not, then try to get some help with it, or just do a basic gaming theme.
I'm about to implement a solution to fix this problem in my own theme and thought I would point out that the link ilmcuts gave is now out of date. You can find the tutorial here
I agree with mojomonkee that this is probably the eaiest way. Especially if you're distributing your theme.
DrWork: ls .24.7 detects full screen apps and hides all modules.
Kewl. I look forward to that release.
I've set my theme up so people can hide all modules with a keystroke if they please. At least this way it will work for those running older builds. Only problem is that !AllLabelsToggle doesn't work :/
mad late respons, but its easy, right click the taskbar toggle, that will close the bar and fade all the modules away, that should do it.
Gee, great. I bet the OP is still eagerly waiting for an answer, ever since '03.
