    Dang darn shoot. I was hoping it would make it.

    How about anyone else out there? Anyone have a nice 800X480 skin to share?

    Need feb to convert his brushed metal & alumn to centrafuse in this res.

    David maybe an idea for a far far far future release...

    Make your hotspot positions in % value, then you can easily stretch for all screen resolution, just change with one variable width and height resolution.

    I've already done a 'clone' of Feb's brushed metal at 848x480. You can resize the image files and adjust the skin.xml file and it will probably work well. I'll try it myself this weekend and if all goes well, release it. I can't imagine, tho, that the 800x480 and 848x480 are really THAT much different visually.

    The problem is that most 7" touchscreens use 800x480 as their native resolution, and so making them display a different res can have a horrible affect on the quality of the picture as it tries to interpolate.
    When mine runs at 848x480 it shimies around and looks all nasty and pixelated. And text is almost impossible to read.

    800x480 is the holly grail for us CarPC'ers as all other resolution alter the aspect ratio of the picture and 800x600 in windows on a 7"er makes things that little bit smaller and harder to see.
