  • Guide to changing fonts and screen layout in destinator.inf ?

    NM, CdrSkull,

    First, THANKS A LOT !
    There are several things I would like to tune (mainly fonts and layout) and I am ready to dig into destinator.inf. Can the following be done there, or is it hard-coded within D3 front end ?

    1) Shift ETA and ETR to the right, thus giving more space to "Current location:" for long street names.





    2) Reduce line spacing in the upper left nav box which usually shows an arrow + distance:




    3) Bottom line with altitude: always black on blue, small font. I played with several values in skin.ini, no change.

    4) Still bottom line: stop cycling through all info, but rather display them all in one line ?




    Thanks again.

    1, Is the D3 front end, see nm
    2, 3 & 4 are all D3

    2, You can reduce the font size but not the line spacing
    3, Haven't found a way to do this but it's nothing to do with skin.ini
    4, Hard coded in the SDK

      The stuff that is hardcoded, would it be possible to just read the values and make a new bar? Like make the current bar invisible... (behind map for example) and then poll the values for latlong/speed/distance/etc, and display them on a frontend bar?

      Any ideas for putting a PC in this? :)

        The bottom bar on D3 cannot be hidden.

        Number of sats and speed (distance is already there) will be shown on the infobar in the next release

        Lon and Lat are not things you really need to check regulary are there? If you really want to know you can always press the add speed camera button, that will show them in a nice big and bold font for you.

        Edit: Oh, and every font, size, position and colour of the items on the infobar can now be changed too
