    just a FYI, in the new Carwings_Dynamic, if you edit skin.ini

    Awww, come on guys, it's so simple maybe you need a refresher course. Heyya! It's all ball bearings nowadays.

    ok, to make these, its just png of course...
    the layers
    the EMPTY: it must be named ending in _transparent, so.... myskin_transparent.png or My_Menu_Transparent.png

    so in skin file
    line 3, image definition line:
    exit_menu_transparent.png,exit_menu_off.png,exit_m enu_on.png,exit_menu_on.png

    simple enough, it can be an menu you want, ie must be used with the "menu" command

    RideRunner Skin
    RRScreen my_menu
    my_menu_transparent.png,my_menu_off.png,my_menu_on .png,my_menu_on.png

                    I have not found this exemple into the 4/1/2011 SkinCommands.txt file.
                    Can you add it please ?

                    Big thanks

                      hi mitch,
                      i work with this new function...and it works very well.....but....the notes for it inside the skin commands.txt are not well.

                      the notes inside telling me that POSx and POSy are relative to the values inside the general.ini.
                      thats only the half truth. its when you fix the value -0- (PosX=0) your object would be place in the center of your screen.
                      if your object has the same width as your screen, its no problem...but, the Y position is also in the center.

                      if its your willing to place the object in the center...its ok, but please give a note inside skincommands.txt file.

                      a second question about it,
                      my skin is 800x600 pixel, the object i popuped is 800x450 pixel. if i poped it, no other label, button, slider aso. i canīt change.
                      so i must wait that the fixed timer is ended, or go my way and put a CANCEL command also in it.

                        and another thing with popups.
                        they didnīt work inside the videoplayer skin.
                        if you popuped an object, the skin goes to full solution and blocked all other grafics.
                        if you ended the popup, the video screen will not be refreshed, so you have the rest of your popup graphic on the screen.

                          The part about the popups in the video screen, that's a bit complicated already....little alone adding support for different popups... guess we'll see what mitch has to say

                              yes, popups are complicated on video
                              remember its not live!!
                              the transparancy is done via a capture of the background, and may not even work
                              right on top of video
                              which is already a window ontop of rr

                              so... i dont know what happens, but i wouldnt recomend to use them on top of video
                              i would make a small popup and try

                              as for the position data, im not sure, nothing is new about them, i dont doubt its hard to understand in skincommands.txt
                              hopefully someone else will clearify

                              the popup is modal
                              if you want it to go away

                              used the new idle
                              this in the skin file

                              IDL,10,"CANCEL"

                              this will execute "CANCEL" command after 10 seconds of IDLE.
                              -Thanks
