            It's really weird: so my skinning app work on all other systems but not yours ? I dont really think so. If you have time, please post the skin.xml generated by NSW and i'll show what's passing.

            Thanks

                design wise, i think the idea of having the car in the skin is whats going wrong. Try removing the Car pic, go back to the first image you posted. I would take all the elements as they are in the First pic and center them in the middle of the screen. Or maybe take the stuff at the bottom and put it on top and center the icons in the middle. Cleaner looks better IMO

                  Have a play with the layer blending palette in Photoshop - I've done a quick mockup but the car is now set as 'Luminosity - 15%'

                  Have also balanced things so they're easier on the eye

                  Too many buttons or bad placement can make a skin confusing to someone - the last thing you want is the driver taking their eyes off the road to try and understand what to press...
