  • Personal skin - need some comment

    Hi everyone,

    I'm working on a skin for myself. I don't really have the intention to release it to public. At least not at for the time being. But I would like to have a little thoughts gathered, especially concerning the text. Which font would you suggest I'd use. And maybe just as important, which color? The skin is going to be used in a audi 80 with blue dash, black faceplates and red backlighting.

    Here is a pic of the dash and the skin.

          geeez, again...

          don't use dotted fonts. On 7inch monitor they look like crap.

          other than this: very nice skin!

            Thanks for the advice.

            Up until now it has just been some photoshopping on my laptop . So I haven't been able to test it yet on a 7".
            Does the other LCD font come out better than the dotted one?
            Or do you only recommend 'normal' fonts?

              That's not true. I played around with this font in my skin. I didn't leave it in my skin because it didn't fit. But you could read it perfectly. What I've heard is that the problem is resolution dependant. The members who complained about this font mostly use 800x480. I'm running NATIVE 800x600. No problems here.

              @proTONEd
              If you like the font try it. But I don't think it fits the skin.

                    Well I am using 800x600, so I should not be having the problem.
                    But you are probably right. Maybe an other font would suit the skin better.
                    I think I'll have some searching to do.

                      You'll be okay if you use NATIVE 800x600 as Konrad does, but our 7' LCDs are in fuct 800x480 unfortunately

                      minor suggestion: put your mute or pause button in an easy accessible place (around the corner preferably)- it helps if you can pause the noise instantly.

                          Ah indeed. The auto scaling...
                          Well anyway, I don't think I'll first consider using other fonts instead of the dotted ones.

                          What the mute button is concerned, is it possible to put the location of the button on top of the volume indicator? So that if you would hit the volume indicator the sound is being disabled.
                          Anyone knows whether this results in conflicts?

                          @Dave Perth
                          Well I'll consider it.
                          For moment being I've got a few reasons not to release it.
                          - It is FAR from finished, I've only done this screen.
                          - I'm really busy at work and I'm making long hours. So it will take quite some time if I want to have a fininshed product.
                          - I have no place to host the files.

                          So if you are a very patient person, know some place to host the files I might consider it.

                              Would you prefer the 3,5" models? I think I still have some from my Commodore 64 up on the attic.

                              No seriously, thanks for the offer. I will PM you. It will not be for the first couple of days.
