So it is still buggy as hell ... nice skins though .
>and blu-ray with menus?
Nope, I didn't have implemented blurays menu support, yet.
>So it is still buggy as hell
Can you please be more specific?
I have already tried that.
Baldrick, can you add me to Skype? My skype login: internat1onale
I'll try to understand what issue do not let you switch subtitles in your BD.
Baldrick, can you please make a ~50-300mb bluray with menu sample? I'll try to implement support for bluray menus, but didn't found any available sample to download.
I can't see any subtitle tracks if right click control panel->subtitle but I can select if I right click on the subtitle icon. But even if I have selected a subtitle track I can't see any subs.
I'm using the portable version.
What's exactly you don't like? Can you please be more specific.
P.S. Did you visited Preferences (F10)->Mouse category?
> behavior when i click right button mouse in screen dont open menu,
This is done due to let a user click on video panel to show/hide control menu + caption so user will see just clean video frame. You can click on control panel or player's caption to show pop-up menu. But if don't like it, you can easily change it: Preferences->Mouse, see "Right Mouse Button" drop-down box.
>maybe in future i work in Light Alloy
Can't wait to see it If you will have any problems with understanding what one or another option means in Light Alloy, you can add me in icq/msn/skype (my contacts can be seen in "About Light Alloy->Credits" window, F1 hotkey) and I with love to answer all your questions.
Regards, Dmitry Koteroff.
I'm watching the program, I'll take a look at this version and see if I can change this behavior. Thank you.
I will gradually translate the Player, where I find the last language file to translate? It may be coming in software?
>I will gradually translate the Player, where I find the last language file to translate? It may be coming in software?
Yes, most updated language files comes with software. But, its just at the moment of release and if no any beta/rc versions available.
Final version 4.7.0 will be released in next 2-3 days, so I suggest you wait till release, and then you can grab installer or portable version and translate it (language files you can find in la_installfolder\Langs).
And would be nice if you publish your translation in this section: http://www.light-alloy.ru/forum/en_translations/
