Currently Being ModeratedMay 25, 2010 12:55 PM (in response to Jane Evans)It sounds to me as if you've got the button set to 'auto activate' - in DVDSP, click on the button area so it is highlighted and check the settings in the property inspector. If you've got 'auto activate' checked, and have set the 'target' then uncheck it...
I am assuming this is a perfectly standard overlay style menu?MBP, 2.66Ghz, 350Gb HD, 4Gb RAM, Mac OS X (10.6.3), Oldest working 17" G4 in the company, still useful and used regularly...
Currently Being ModeratedMay 25, 2010 3:41 PM (in response to Hal MacLean)This is just a standard menu. A target is set, and the button is set as the default button. The auto-activate is NOT set. The Return button is set to go to to the first track, but when I look at the setup in the simulator, the first button is highlighted only. Using the arrows, I can hit any one of them (as I have it set up) to choose the second button. Then, if I hit OK or Return it goes to the second track.
However, after muxing, it just automatically zips to track number one.
Perhaps I should kill everything in the real output folder and build and format all over from the beginning.Intel iMac 24", MacBook, iMac G4, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedMay 29, 2010 11:14 AM (in response to Jane Evans)Thanks for the additional detail... is there a specific reason for using the return button to go to the track?
So, this is a two button menu, and the navigation is that the menu starts on button 1 by default, and any directional key from there gets you to button 2... all pretty standard stuff. Once on button 2 hitting 'enter' or 'OK' in the simulator gets the second track to play.
You said that the return button is set to track 1, yet you also say that in simulator when you highlight button 2 and use the return button you get track 2 playing. This seems odd... either it goes to track 1 or not, but more confusing is that you are using the return button at all. The use of this is normally for moving between menus, not activating tracks. It is more properly called the 'GoUp' button, meaning it lets you navigate through the menu hierarchy. However, it's use in DVDSP is not well implemented and I generally let it default to 'same as disc', avoiding using it at all.
Finally, if you are using an old build location and simply overwriting the build then this could well be a cause of problems - it certainly helps to build/format to a new location each time, particularly when you have made changes.MBP, 2.66Ghz, 350Gb HD, 4Gb RAM, Mac OS X (10.6.3), Oldest working 17" G4 in the company, still useful and used regularly...
Currently Being ModeratedMay 29, 2010 11:28 AM (in response to Hal MacLean)After tearing my hair out for what seemed like ages, I removed all FCS files etc. and reinstalled. I had moved fairly recently from a 24" iMac to a 27" and thought there might have been a problem with the transfer.
Then, at one point, looking at the Menu Inspector under the Advanced tab, I noticed that at the very bottom was a choice for Alternate Target. It was filled in (not by me!) with the destination that button one would go to. For some reason, when setting up, this was automatically filled in.
I removed the alternate target to "Not Set" and everything is working perfectly. The menu shows the two buttons with #1 selected. Using any of the arrows, button #2 becomes selected. One can go back and forth this way. It was just that funny alternate target that was causing the problem. I never had had this filled in before and do not know how it happened.

You had somehow managed to set up a display condition... this is usually for those moments when you want to show something different if a certain set of conditions is true. I had not thought you'd have set this at all - glad you got it sorted!MBP, 2.66Ghz, 350Gb HD, 4Gb RAM, Mac OS X (10.6.3), Oldest working 17" G4 in the company, still useful and used regularly...
