Hi Dim!
There is one option I’m missing from RoyalSlider: Dynamic thumbnail list.
Imagine I have a LOT of images in my gallery. Since they are loading on demand when user browses throught a gallery - no problem, only limited amount load at once. But for thumbnails I see no option to load them as user scrolls. RSSlider loads them immideately all at once. I made a spritesheet for thumbnails and fixed css accordinly, it works but not 100% perfect in terms of using network calls. Instead of asking server for 100 tiny thmb images now I ask for one large bitmap (worse if we have more than one gallery per page). The better solution would be to call for only visible thumbnails and wait if user wants (scrolls for) more.
