  • Post the skin you use and why.

    Just post a single screenshot to keep it simple. This is the one I use, it's the Steel Blues skin by MGD. A little outdated but it does everything I want and it looks great. What do you use and why?

    [SELFLESS PLUG] I use the DigitalFX skin [/SELFLESS PLUG]

    I wrote it, as I wanted a fully transparent skin that you could use any color, background image, picture or whatever to change the entire look of the skin whenever I wanted to. Also wanted some kewl transparent looking Visuals to go along with it

        I'm not a skinner but I'm going to plug Simplistique. I like that it is not cluttered with all sorts of info i don't need, the contrast of the colors used makes it one of the easiest skins to see in sunlight without a transreflective screen, and the buttons are nice a big and easy to use and understand even by my fiance. Plus the graphics make it super clean looking IMO.

          I use my epidermis, since it's been attached to my body for 39 years...

          Ooooooh! You meant Roadrunner skins!
          Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
          How about the Wiki?

          Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

              Why? It feels most at home in my audi. I wanted an OEM feel for my build and this was the best way to achieve that IMO.

                      DigitalFX pretty much constantly. Not perfect but certainly the most intuitive and feature rich. Sometimes I'll try FU but always end up back with DigitalFX with Burlwood.

                        my own custom. I wanted a central mph reading, with time and compass as well. I tailored the menu options to the functions I have working, or will eventually have working. The green color was chosen to match my interior oem lighting scheme.

                        EDIT: lol, I had to add the audio_player .. couldn't resist.

                          My own skin, uses GDI+ to change the skin buttons and declares glabal variables through includes.txt to change text label colors on the fly

                          pretty handy when I'm moving the rig to the wife's car for a trip, and want to match her dash colors, logo, etc.

                          I can easily change the button colors and logo, also the night skin has a blue chrom screen color rather than this beige chrome (which matches my interior but is less interesting

                          Audio browser has a song information pop up (for 10 secs) that also has vol controls...I use optical out through an Alpine PXA-H701 controller so I do my volume and other control through that. (a big reason why I started my own skin was I didn't want to give up real estate to volume controls thyat I don't use)

                          Audio browesr also has a pop up skip to letter along the bottom and access to my mp3 plater, CD drive, USB drive

                            I use the iphone skin, because it looks and works great
