    Nice. Is the center icon replaceable?

    Well... yes and no.

    No, because it's not the standard CF logo (has something to do with how CF handles button clicks and the rounded corners of the main buttons) and yes if you'd use VD2 for skinning but I'm not sure whether or not I'll release the VD2 project files (has something to do with copyrights).

    I've modified it slightly (as you can see in the pics above) and now the "DRIVE" in the middle comes from logo.png, which can have a size of 114 by 114 pixel.

    Zorro, great skins. I already put them both in the car along with the other one's you made. I love the night version especially. The only issue I have is with the day skin. The background behind the song list area on the media screen is fairly dark, and the text is black so the lack of contrast makes it very difficult to read during the day, especially when you are driving. Could you tell me which line in the skin.xml I would need to edit to change the color of the artist/song names?

    Thanks for your work! It's great to finally see some new options.

    Look out for the <LISTVIEWS> tag and within replace all <FONTCOLOR> with the new color value. What color do you think would be better?

    Well I like the way the black looks actually, I have to try out the new font in the car yet, it looks like it may be a little more bold (easier to see) than the generic font since I didn't use social animal, it was too slow. If the background was brighter the black would be fine (ex. Onyx Day is black text on white background). If not I just edited it to look like this to keep the same color scheme going. Changed the listheader/count to black, listview to white, and the highlight color to a grey with black text.

    Ok, I think that looks a bit better and I've changed the skin accordingly.
    I also changed the mixers background and a few screens / dialogs.

    You can download it here.
    This is a setup file which installs boths skins and all plugins (it's pretty huge) but you have to remove all the Drive and Drive Night folders from Skins and Plugins before you run it.

    Well that was fast! It should be easier to read this way. I will install in the car today and test it out tomorrow on the way to work. Thanks! The Installer is great too, much easier.
