  • Skin Idea

    I have looked and all the skins on me.org and I am very impressed with some of the work. Has anyone thought about creating a more "Stock" looking skin? I looked for examples to properly describe but couldnt find the right look.

    So i will try and describe:
    Plain (Not much eyecandy), easy to read, picture yourself looking at a new high end car with a stock LCD to control all aspects of audio/video. Thats what I would love to see.

    I will continue to search and hopefully have a "concept" soon.

    You could try adapting the Brushed Aluminum skin for MediaCar to work with MediaEngine. I was thinking of doing this myself.

            Looks very good, I like it. Looks really stock, just like you wanted it. Can't wait to see the finished thing.

              Every other skin was rendered pointless by the creation of this one.

              And since it's free of brand logos and anime characters, it should definitely be the default.

                That skin is really good but its missing some button like radio, internet, ext apps. That is a main reason why I wouldn't use that skin, other than that is an awesome skin.

                  The external apps button is labelled "load" on the main screen. I usually get the radio from the music area via that bar that pops up. I don't know if there's a better way.

                  And you need an Internet button? You might as well ask for a Hyperterminal button or something. Just use the external apps.

                    Move on

                    Crap on another thread.

                    The whole idea of skin-able applications if so one can create their own look, Note i didnt say this was the best, actually i think my tone was many will not like this.
                    But you have to understand my belief is true intergration is making it look like it belongs there.

                        Actually, that skin was a good start. Have you considered trying to use the colors and shapes that are present in the rest of your dash right now? If you're looking for a factory look, getting the skin to look as close to your factory dash will probably be your best bet......or is that what you were trying to say in your fist post?

                          Here's what I've done with the brushed media skin and another logo that came from the forum. I customized it to my specific needs so as to only 3 main menu items.
