  • neocar skin workshop Alpha.2 [DOWNLOAD]

    The announced new NSW version is out.
    No big new functionnalities but a totally rewritten interface

    I think it's a lot better, i will now change some parts but the GUI is fixed.
    Download and make GREAT SKINS

    NOTE: for language files makers, there's a text in the ZIP with changed parts of the XML from Alpha.1c

    Download: NSW Alpha.2


    IMPORTANT: text formats will not work in NMC until Alpha.2 (yif you want to make it working, you must use the french formats for now..)

    Here's some screenshots from Alpha.2:

        I've just got back and Oh Man! what have you done Stephane!!   I have no complaints with the old NSW and here you are rewriting the whole NSW. The coolest thing about this is, I feel, the zoom function. I didn't realize I need it until I started playing around with it. I don't know what else you've got under your sleeve, Maestro!

              Just place a image called "modulename_logo" .JPG, GIF, BMP, PNG in the skin folder.

              The image is not resizing but supports transparency (just set the background transparent in GIF or PNG).

              Module names are: main, audio, video, applications_externes, photos

              Some module's automatic logo painting might not work (ive tested only the main module ) so report them to me and i'll fix this for the Alpha.2

                    just been playing.. would it be possible to be able to set the colour of the sliders like you can the font. The volume and slidebar and also the track indictor.

                    cheers

                      You can totally customize the sliders with making it like you want on the image..

                      NMC has no use of any color for the sliders, it use the images of the skin to generate the slider. (slider is taken from "_pressed" image)

                          fist of all, extreme THANX for your Software.
                          Itīs the best i ever tried.

                          But, i have a problem with NSW.
                          Every time i work on my skin, all buttons are disabeld.
                          If i enable them, and save the skin, they are not shown in NMC.
                          All entrys in skin.xml look like this:
                          <fermer>
                          <actif>Wahr</actif>
                          <position_x>297</position_x>

                          If i change it from WahrtoVarj the Skin works.

                          Ive tried the english and french language.

                          Iīm using a german WinXP Pro version.

                          The second problem is, that every link from the main Menu getīs a ERROR13.
                          At the moment i made Main and Audio Skin.
                          If i select Audio from the Main Skin, MNC closed with error13.

                          Do you have any idea?

                          Thank in advance.

                            For the dislabed buttons problem, i see whats passing so i will fix.

                            i think you need to copy some images in skin's folder to avoid "error 13". Audio module need some images like "audio_cue"..
                            At this moment i have'nt made any error detection for the skins so the best solution i can give you is to copy all images from the official skin in your skin folder and then just replace the images as long as you design it. So no required images will be missed.

                            Thanks for your interest

                              I forgot also to mention that to make your buttons show, actually NMC needs to have "1" or "true" or "Vrai" in "<actif></actif>" part of the control properties (skin.xml) to work.
