    Exclamation VD2 - "True BMW" - Orange Skin (Dialup Beware)

    WARNING: 4MB worth of images :-)

    Thanks to Zorro, I've finally been able to realize a version of Centrafuse that I feel conforms to the look-n-feel of the LCD displays in BMW's -- the Orange'ish dot-matrix-style.

    I am not releasing this today, but giving screenshots, as there are a few technical issues I'm still working out with:
    OSK (On Screen Keyboard)
    Web
    Weather
    ... and a couple of other items which you can see from the screenies.

    I'm very interested to know what others think about it. I've been working with Zorro on some other items within VD2, and hope to have these few issues cleared up so I can release this skin to everyone.

    Note: This says 'True BMW' for the skin -- but honestly, anyone with the orange/amber'ish cluster/guage/etc in their car can certainly use this to match.


    Screenies:

    Update: Zorro has made available some recent patches to issues shown above. I will however need to re-create this skin from scratch, which now is not that big of a deal -- the hardest part is matching the orange (for me (BMW) at least). Inside on my laptop, the orange looks right, In the car day or night it's way too dark, and more red than orange.

    That will get fixed this 'round. I plan on working, and hopefully available for beta this weekend.

    I had a top-level idea last night and created a 5-color-combo version of colors so I could view it in full-screen and see what colors best matched.

    I've attached it if anyone's interested in testing it in their car. I found that the BACKGROUND color for #5 was a near-match for the 'background' LCD, and and BACKGROUND color for #3 was a near-match for the 'FOREGROUND' (font) LCD....

    So i'm going to be matching those colors.
