    Just got an idea...

    ... how to return static 1-click enabling sidebar to centrafuse.

    Skinbedding centrafuse with sidebar.

    Now could u with more experienced with skinbedder please tell me if it would work. There seems to be hotkeys for apps in centra. so building sidebar and skin bedding centra on right side of it should be straighforward, right?

    OK, I thought I was desperate for wanting static menu back, but YOU take the trophy! Not against the idea, but the mere thought of having CF running in this fashion starts to give that 'clunky' feeling!

    had few initial tests... and i think it really could work... allthought cf doesnt bed too well... but mayby static menu on right side... im not relying epia but intel M instead so have little slack speedwise...

    Got it working with external bottombar... didnt do sidebar yet... but i think theres not problems with that either... there seems to not be hotkey for nav in cf... but since im running dual frontend now using rr to do nav its not biggie.

    Somebody was complaining somewhere that theres only fixed set of resolutions in 1.6, this is accurate for setup... but if u manually configure xml file, u can chooge any resolution u want.

    This idea of skinbedding cf and dual frontend seems to solve so many problems which i have before:

    - Since i love to play music videos while driving, before i had to use 3 clicks to skip video. 1 to get back from full screen, second to hit skip button, and third to return fullscreen... nowi can just skip with external skinbedder button and continue watching and driving.

    - Again cause i like to watch music videos... swithing between videos and music use to be so ******* tedious in cf media manager... now i can just use cf to play videos and rr to play music.

    - and also i have horizontal area reserved for cf which is good for videos, dvds and web and so on, but vertical area for rr which works better with navigation, mayby pdf, and related apps.

    bear, your setup is like mine, & i'm running rr & cf togeather, (were probably the only two here doing this), but I never played with skinbedder.... I was thinking of trying to set up buttons in rr to control cf, but I don't know if that's better or skinbedder is a better way to try & do this.... should I start playing with skinbedder too?

    Yes i think mayby u should... skinbedder is very neat application. Im not too familiar with it either yet, just started to play around with it when editing google earth skin.

    Anyway i was stupidly thinking to make kind of central console with skinbedder to middle of frontends and place play, next and previous tracks buttons to it, and remove them from frontend skins... but then i realised there is no way to decide which fronthead send play command, that is case to for next track... cause software logic in both front ends starts playing when hitting next track. So now im thinking to make bottom part of button to control rr and upper part centrafuse... thats bit stupid solution, but atleast makes solution look nice.

    I don't get it, if the center bar top buttons control the top skin, & the bottom buttons control the bottom skin, why not just put those indevidual buttons in the bottom of the top skin & top of the bottom skin, it'll look the same & work the same without skinbedder, no?
