    So here I am testing out the skinnability of MMC to make sure it is 100% flexible and I wanted to post a screenshot of my progress.... I just want to state that I really like the default layout of Centrafuse, so I experimented with MMC to see if I could reskin it to be a centrafuse clone (for the purpose of testing only) I was amazed at the flexiblity that our skin system gives me!! here are some shots of the results:

    he he he..... I giggled at myself!

    I dont particularly like the interface, although in the car it proved more useful than it seems... still I dont get why some portions of the system deserve a button on every page (music, dvd, video) and others that might be more used (phone, maybe even traffic) need to be accessed through a HOME->PHONE sequence....

      I agree and I hope to make the MMC UI much better in the respect to navigation. I like things that are very easy and simple to use, but powerful at the same time. That is the goal I want to reach with the MMC UI.

                I agree on the Centrafuse thing - there are some nice new concepts in that layout. This is the skin that I've been half assed working on over the last couple of weeks in, of all things, Powerpoint. It's a bit Frodoplayer at the moment, as that is what I'm using in the car at the moment, but is relatively simple to re-layout for MMC when it's nearer completion.

                C!

                  Music Info Not Updating

                  I put a music display on my main screen but the description/Album Art is only right when the song starts on the screen. If it started in the musicplayer, its wrong when I go to the main screen and vice versa(Bug?). Anyone else try this?

                    Yes it is a bug. Sorry! I will release a patch today that fixes this issue.

                            I will have skin for you guys to look at in a couple of days. I am almost done but I want to iron out a few things first.
