SuperStartMenu3 - Right side Start Menu

If you have a need (like dual monitors) for Start Menus on the right side of your screen(s), do the following:

1. Copy the entire folder SuperStartMenu2 to SuperStartMenu3. On my system that folder is located here:

C:\VT3\Skins\Desktop\StartMenu\Default

So now in this folder you will have three folders:

SuperStartMenu
SuperStartMenu2
SuperStartMenu3

2. Edit one line (~ line 18) in the Initialization.ToasterScript found in the new SuperStartMenu3 folder:

from:

SetWindowPosition(0,29)

to:

SetWindowPosition(GetScreenWidth()-203, 29)

This works for my dual monitor setup of 2560 x 1024, but should work for other setups as well. Backup up any files in the Default directory before you start just in case you need to have a fall back position, but you are only coping and editing the copy so no real harm can be done.

Also, I have updated the vertical menu to include Mirage and sent it to Doc at www.phreakboy.com for inclusion in his Mirage menu item downloads, look for it there soon.

nice change!

let me see...

if i change

MirageLink() = WinExec("C:\\Program Files\\Bauhaus Software\\Mirage Pre-Release\\Mirage.exe")

with

AfterEffectLink() = WinExec("C:\\Program Files\\Adobe\\After Effects 5.5\\AfterFX.exe")

The link will work opening AE?

that's the ticket, only your menu won't say After Effects. A little Photoshoping on the PNG's and you're in business. The vertical menus are still not available for download. Doc said he would add them soon. I have them but no server to post them. Maybe could Zip em and email if anyone requests them. I have PSD that has editable Text for the 'Mirage' entry that could easily be changed to AE, DFX or whatever... suppose I could create edit-able horizontal ones as well

I have noticed lately that www.phreakboy.com is often not available. The link I just used is by using Google Cache feature. I did notice the StartMenu.zip download still works however. Maybe I will paste the text from the page as the Google page may disappear as well... If the download stops working, I could upload it to Romain's server...

It would be different but very similar. I don't have a way to test it here but using the steps as a guide and looking at the existing scripts and folders on your system you should be able to do it. But I could be totally wrong... back up any folder before you make changes just in case...
