  • Edit ME menu bars

    Hey guys,

    I'm part way through making a skin for ME but I want to get rid of and reorder some of the icons on the menu bars in the mp3 and video screens.

    How can I do this?

    Hope you can help,

    Andy

      Well that answers some questions but there some buttons in the bar like the "globe" button, or the "add favorite" button, how can those buttons be changed.

        Try browsing the skin folders and common folders with your view set to thumbnails to find the filename.

          I toke a look in those folders for the images with no luck. They must be hard coded into the software and not changeable, that bad because I was able to change all but those in my new skin.

              How about you follow directions and report back the filenames of the ones you can't get to change. Here's a little hint to get you started.

                Well im not stupid, I have followed your directions and can not find the file in those folders or any other folder dealing with ME, Again you have a "Pic of a world" and a button that says "add Fav". These two buttons are not in those folders. I think that you have a very good software BUT when a person asks a question you should not talk to them as thou they are all children. If you can find those files please let us know. Again I have uploaded a skin called "Dodge Project" please check it out and you then can see the pics I an talking about

                Thanks

                  Look at the screen cap - the very first images shown are the add favorite buttons. When I said to thumbnail the folder, I was talking about the skin folder under the M/E program directory, not the one installed by the skin maker app - sorry my bad.

                  Piece of advice - don't come asking for help and preach about how smart you are.

                    DJChicago, chill out a sec mate! Phatbastard is just trying to help.

                    I think you're problem may be that you're not looking in a folder that has a full skin. Some skins only have a few files and then ME uses default images for the missing files.

                    I've just finished a full skin (click here). I suggest you save your skin images with the file names that i have and then just run my .skn file. This way you will have a full skin. You can of course change the .skn filename as long as you change the folder name to match.

                      THank you for the info, thats what I needed to hear and you are right, I looming in a folder that does'nt have all the images and that where I had the problem. THank you for explaining this fact to me, now I can change the images and understand that the program inserts "default' images when need. And I not saying that im the smartest thats why I called out for help.

                      P.S a smart man know when to say he needs help
