  • Brushed Aluminum for Centrafuse

    Finally, here it is. Brushed Aluminum.

    "Black & White" 848x480

    "Black & White" Stretched 800x600



    PS. The skin.xml file is essentially the same as that for BrushedMetal, except I changed all the fonts to "black/#000000". Doing so, I just now noticed that the OSK background and font now are BOTH black. For now, just change one or the other yourself in the OSK section. I'll post a fix later on.

      the text on top of the icons is too hard to read... especially when you're driving and you want to see what it is in a quick glance..

      other than that, looks great.

        I think that's a bug in CF. Sometimes, when you load up a new skin, the "text" on the global nav buttons comes back. You shouldn't see any text, as it's turned off in the skin.xml file... you should only see the icons.

        Try exiting CF and restarting it. That usually does the trick.

          Besides the original skin this is my favorite Centrafuse skin to date. Will be trying it out tommorow.

                It doesn't have the destinator skins done and I have attached a modified copy of the skin.xml to fix the phone support. I only changed the settings for the phone so you can replace the original skin.xml with this one. OBTW, I did change the OSK, too.

                  Everything except, as the next post points out, Destinator. I didn't know this used a seperate skin either. I'll check it out.

                    Hey, GizmoQ, thanks for doing the phone section in the XML. That helps tremendously and I'm sure many others will appreciate it too. I'll bundle it into the download packages this afternoon.

                        So I searched and searched this whole board about Map Monkey and Destinator, not finding what I was looking for. But then... voila!

                        I just looked in the default /skins folder and found a bunch of new "destinator" screens I'd never noticed before, and then found a /screens/destinator section in the skin.xml. Duh.

                        I'll see what I can churn out this week. For now, if you want to use either BrushedMetal or BrushedAluminum, and don't want it to break when you go to your GPS app, copy the destinator*.jpg files from the default /skins folder (for your resolution) and copy the stuff between the <destinator> tags from the default skin.xml to the one in your BM or BA folder (in the <screens> section, of course). That should get you by. To make things fit just a little better, use PSP or other image editor to "gray-scale" all the destinator*.jpg files.

                          Ok... right now I'm just looking for aesthetics. Can you guys running integrated Destinator copy these 4 files into your /screens folder, pull up the "destinations" dialog and let me know how it looks?

                          Note 1: These are ONLY the 848x480 files. To test in Stretched 800x600, you'll have to resize the images. the "destinations" pop-ups should be 377x200 and the header/empty files should be 800x75.

                          Note 2: The skin.xml will be updated later, but I kept the same screen size and the button locations should be pretty close.

                          The Destinator screens look pretty simple to do once I get the basic feel for the pop-ups. You guys give me the "go ahead" and I'll finish it up.

                            Don't like the white letters looks better in black on aluminum. Destinator anuminum is brighter than rest of skins. Menus are still blue for some reason?????
