    Wazzup, everyboday...I'm currently working with Veetid on the final version of the Centrafuse skin and I'd like you all's inputs. The one you've been starrin's at is a mix between my stuff and the programmer's design skills. No disrespect to Veetid, but the final will be mad-smooth.

    I've been readn all of the postings here and on fluxmedia.net, and you guys are giving a ton of good advice and feeback, so thanks much for the help. We will deliver the baddest product ever made, I promise you that.

    peace,

        Sweet, I finally got my designer to join in... Everyone help him out with comments, because he is a highly qualified Art Director for a large company you all know and possible watch regularly on TV . He can make something that will blow us all away... To get the CENTRAFUSE beta out I took one of his one page ruff drafts from early on and designed the rest on my own, with my limited design skills... I can't wait to see his finally either... We should have some killer teasers in a couple weeks or so...

        Also... He is very good at UI architecture... so you can help with those comments also... I know many hate the music manager as the main source for changing music... I still feel it serves its purpose, with some help being re-designed and simplified... I just left out the Music Browser, which is what will be used to easily browse through your music straight from the music screen... Suggestions on how everyone would like this implemented would be awesome....

          Something that I noticed today... I'd like to see the skin flipped for a right hand drive (make 2 versions?). This would put the menu down the right, and the volume buttons in the bottom right corner. Having them closer, so I don't have to reach while driving would be nice.

              I don't understand this car logo fascination. Do you forget that you drive a Renault?

                    Maybe a simple one without too many buttons? I was rather overwhelmed the first time round. I guess I'm old

                    ps. Don't get me wrong, your design is way cool!

                      I wasn't bagging your car - just your memory! You're right - I drive neither of those - with a WRX, I don't need to

                      For mine - I think of things from a development point of view as 'needs' or 'wants'. A car logo falls into the 'want' category, and makes skinning an application a PITA as the designer needs to do 100 different versions of their skin. Feb sure has a lot more patience than I do

                        Nyuk Nyuk, yeah that would be my fault (by creating car brands) But then again, if you look at Netsuo's (NMC) way of handling car brands, then the designer doesn't have to do many versions of the skin.

                          Ok, my bad... Yeah, I know Renaults are crappy, and their logo is crappier.

                          I just said to make the skin, in such a way, so that we can add a small car logo. If you don't want a logo, like C4M here, you just don't add one... pretty simple actually...

                            Gah

                            Taking it all way too personal. If you like your car, then that's great. I love my car, so I'm happy. What I think of your car is irrelevant. Careful reading will indicate that I did not proffer an opinion.

                            Back on topic: I never said that I don't want a logo - I said that I don't need one. Although Centrafuse is the closest to what I think is the perfect solution, there are other more important bits of functionality to be completed first to make this look like a stock installation (ie hide the cursor is a great example).

                            That's all I'm trying to say. My apologies if you consider my comments a personal attack. Please refer to appropriately placed smilies and winkies for an indication of tone and intention.

                              Colour Depth

                              Hi

                              While we are thinking about the design for a skin for Centrafuse, may I suggest that the colour range used is 16bit rather than 32 bit?

                              I run my CarPC at 16bit in the vain hope that having a small range of colours to interpolate might make it a shade faster. On top of that, the screens that we are running are so small, I'm not sure if I would pick the difference anyway.

                              Does colour depth impact the thing that changes the gamma? When I darken the screen, I notice that there are artifacts on the graduations.

                              C!
