Description Robert Ancell 2011-11-27 23:04:33 UTC
Use a new game screen that shows the game options at the start of a game.  This means that preferences dialogs for game difficulty can be removed and resolves the issue that options can be changed while a game is in progress.  See the Sudoku start screen for ideas.

Some proof that it is hard to find out how to change the layout in the current mahjongg:

Reassessing whether we really want new game screens for all of our games....

For Mahjongg, we want to remove Layout from the preferences dialog.  These would probably fit better in the app menu than in a new game screen.  However, there are a lot of layouts, and we might not have enough space for them in the app menu since we need to care about small monitors.
