    I know I don't.. but that's because I don't know enough flash for that..
    But it'd be pretty cool..

          I considered an all flash skin but im a little worried about speed. I plan on finishing my skin flat first then experimenting with it in flash.

            Yeah, I'm researching ways to "stop" the flash from running when needed.. also concerned with speed.. the rotating song title for instance although takes little CPU is time demanding which can take out priority from Vis plugins etc.. that's why I stop it when in Full Screen or not on the same screen.

                  Just hope you're making a SWF file for each individual screen OR at least one for each "special" screen (Launch, Video, TV, Radio)

                  Main Menu and Audio player could actually be the same skin -- for instance with some cool flash changing to show the controls or buttons.. but that's optional of course.. anyway, let me know if you need something added/changed..

                    hey guino, i started playing around with flash and i ran into a couple of problem with RR and flash.......ok im just making the menu in flash, I made my .swf file 848x480 and i put this into the menu.skin file :

                    /, Flash Sample
                    /, x y w h Movie
                    /, --- --- --- --- -------------
                    F00,000,000,848,480,"logo.SWF"

                    for some reason the swf file still dont cover the whole screen and i see parts of the jpg menu file.......how can i cover the whole screen?

                    thanks

                      The Flash Movie is always Transparent... so you MUST have at least a background.. (probably without the buttons and such..)

                      can you send me the swf you made so I can test with it ?? I don't have anything that big to try.. I did try making the logo.swf as big as the window and it worked here.. so it may have to do with the SWF..

                        ok i decided to just to half of the menu...so the top half is flash and the bottom is regular...seems like it working ok....

                        I attach both the full and half so you can do some test on your end

                        ONLY the "MP3" & "GPS" lables are linked to work
                        also how can we get a trackname scroll going with flash

                        Here are the files:

                          You'd have to get the TRACKNAME variable in Flash and use it however you want to make it scroll, rotate or do your thing in Flash.. RR will only scroll the trackname (or any other label) if it is directly in the Skin (not in flash). This is because RR deals with the graphics to make the scroll, it's not something I (or anyone) could ever pass along into flash.. You should be able to make a similar effect in flash though (as I have tried in the past) -- you do have to know flash very well though..

                            Dude, this looks cool... but you have to be carefull with CPU usage.. this SWF you sent me uses up 40% of my CPU (P4 2.2Ghz)... maybe you want to just slow down the refresh rate or something.. Flash is powerfull, but can be consumming too...

                              I'd like to be able to stop the scroll (flash would be good, too- for performance reasons with the vis) perhaps upon a click to the label. Any possibility of this?
