In the old Buzz there was this rebuzz.ini menu with some tools, i used the menu and the tools often.
In the new Buzz is no custom menu, and i would like to get this custom menu back
I would also have, as I guess, a inovative idea...
Its just, as in the old Buzz, a customable menu in the toolbar.
And to customize a normal user would not have to play around with ini files or xaml or cryptographic digital binary stuff,
no it could all be very simple, just a custom menu folder in the Buzz directory,
then a user creates folders and subfolders in it which will appear in Buzz when Buzz loads.
The user could place *.lnk links into the folder and they would be the menu items to custom apps as in example a calculator
But thats not all, there would also be a magic folder, the plopup menu folder,
a user could create a Buzz file with some machines in it, save the file with a name into the magic folder, with a meaningful name, let us say Favorite-Delay.bmx,
then buzz should read the bmx files when starting up, no sound no nothing, Buzz should not even open the files, just read the machines of the file and list them as items under the menu entry of the filename.
In that way a user can define his menu without ".ini's or tools from a site which may still exists
It would be all in Buzz it self
In example you want a new menu entry in the toolbar menu, just place a link into the toolbarmenu-folder of Buzz.
Or you like to resort your rightclick machines menu, just put some machines into a file, safe it with a name into the rightclick-folder and reload Buzz.
Similar you could delete menu entries or some machines in your menu Buzz.files
This would turn the ini menu into an additional option or even old and useles.
There would be the question, what happens to the old ini menu?
May it would need a menu converter which reads the ini menu and creates the files in the tollbarmenu folders/subfolders.
This would also solve a other nasty problem,
The ini menu, as i guess, mostly comes from google and seems to contain near to every machine, some do not exist any more, i strongly feel some did also never realy exist, at least they were not meant to exist, some how...
With such a custom menu, the user would never miss machines which he him self never had before.
I think this kind of menu could be the future, even to other applications with a similar modular system.
There is only one real problem, how could people share such a user menu?
First, why should some one share the menu? Every one should have his own menu as he understands it. But if it has to be there, there will be the problem of missing machines.
I see only two options so solve this problem, Buzz will try to download the machine from the machines archive or users can pack the menu and machines into one kind of zip file, so they can share the menu without a problem, the third and bad solution would be, Buzz does not find the file and the menu stays empty if you do not have the machines.
I hope some Dev people can make this and bring us the custom Buzz menu back, it was not there with out reason
Thanks any way... Buzz is great (just when he crashes he makes a some problems)
