I can't get the page to load. It could very well be because I'm at work, but I wanted to let you know just in case. I'm kinda interested to see what you did.

Haha didnt even notice that. There's another way to do it i'll give it a try tonight and see if it breaks the menus as well.

Thanks for the feedback.

this mod results in the bar menu dropdowns being disabled. The wiki is being edited but in essence, you need to edit bar-assistant.js not bar-scene.html.

See the updated wiki page for details.

Ya, I would really love to have my menus back as opposed to this damn white bar... no time, no signal, no wifi, no menus wtf...

I reverted to the original texts inside the bar-assistant, but it doesn't fix it... any help!

After doing this I don't have any issue with menus not showing up.. I also changed the font colors by editing the css file. Screenshot

There is no old file if you didn't back it up.

I added instructions in the wiki page to change the font color in the css. Mine now says "DON'T PANIC" in a nice red font.

I also added instructions to back up your files first, since the version of vi supplied kind of sucks from what I'm used to. It seems too easy to screw up files.
