  • TEKNIK3 - Concept Skin

    Thread Closed ... skin is no longer being supported. The TEK3 skin is located here ...http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/rr-s...nik-t-3-a.html



    Here is a skin that I've been working on for a little while. It is inspired by mAv1c by monkeyracer and one of the design goals was to see how small could the skin be in size but still have useful functionality. Support for the skin will NOT be a high priority, this is really a hobby skin - so bear that in mind if using it.

    Unzipped this skin is just 2.02 Meg, but within that small size it has the following features ...

    - Audio Player
    - Audio Browser
    - Playlist Manager
    - Video Player
    - Video Browser
    - External GPS (FullScreen)
    - Transparent Overlay on GPS
    - Picture Viewer
    - Current Weather
    - Visualisation Support
    - Custom Song Ratings
    - Mixer Screen
    - Changable Backgrounds
    - Changable Logo's
    - Customisable Skin Transparency (0% - 100%)
    - Font Colour changer (3 seperate colours)
    - Mainmenu Button Changer
    - Switchable iList Support
    - Custom RR Screen Lock
    - Skin Selector
    - Day / Night Gamma
    - System Defaults Option
    - Text Label Shadows
    - Action Confirmation Popup's
    - Selectable Menu Image (Album Art or Car Logo)
    - Dynamic GPS indicator and select button.


    *** Important notes on setting up this skin ***

    - Extract to TEKNIK3 folder in your skins path.
    - Install the "WingDings 3" font by copying the "WINGDNG3.TTF" file from the support folder to "c:\windows\fonts" folder.
    - If no background image is visible press and hold anywhere on the top part of the main menu to set the default system colours.
    - Hidden buttons : only the PLAY and VOL buttons have "hold" functionality ... which are STOP and MUTE respectively. Added "hold-to-lock" button to screen name box at bottom of screens.
    - Main menu buttons : press and hold any of the top 4 (left / right) buttons to change it's functionality.
    - Background imager selector uses the "picspath" setting, so make sure this points to your background images.
    - The built in imageviewer program defaults to look at "C:\". This can be changed in the "imageviewer_config.ini" file.
    - Screen lock is not effective on systems with a keyboard ... most car setup's use touchscreen so it should be ok. Default Code is 1234.
    - Only 2 logo's are included in the download ... just as a demo. Download your own logo's for use with the skin.


    Enjoy, and let me know what your thoughts are on this concept skin ...
    Valheru.

        Suggestion:

        - If no background image is visible press anywhere on the top part of the main menu to set the default system colours.

        Should be a press and hold to prevent accidental defaulting... For mavic, I changed the default background to a hex value for the download package so that there's no dependency on having a certain background. Maybe when it's uploaded, make sure the default is picked.

        also:



        I know how to fix it, but for the newbs or code-challenged, it would be frustrating.

        Lastly, is there a way to just have the album art show where the logo is (as in be able to select it from the logo list) I don't use logos, I know what car I'm driving, and so does anyone in my car, so I'd rather see the album art there instead. (Again, I know how to fix this, but for the newbs out there)

                    Ya'll never stop pushing the boundaries do you!? Selectable transparency that works! AMAZING!

                    Iguidance starts seamless with the overlay but it has the menu bar on the top - was that the intention or is there something wrong?

                      hi treetop - what "menu bar" are you talking about ... is it part of the skin or part of IG ?

                        The IG menu at the top. No big deal though, it's probably 'cause i'm testing on the laptop or something. I'll load her in the truck and see..

                          the skin literally just calls the program that is defined as your ext gps ... it doen not modify the gps program's appearance in any way ... or at least should not ...

                          The actual command is LOAD;fullgps.skin||RUN;$GPSPATH$;$GPSNAME$ ... what happens if you just run IG on it's own - outside of RR ... is the menu bar still there ?

                            Maybe it's that command; i had to change it in MAV1C for IG to work properly. I changed it to: ".......fullgps.skin;$gpsname$;$gpspath$;$gpsname$ ",

                            I'll try that and see..

                              I had to change it to this in exectbl.ini for it to embed right:

                              "SATNAV","GPS||RUN;$skinpath$support\elcosmenu.exe |navigation.skin"

                              I also copied the fullgps.skin and renamed it external_gps.skin.

                              When it is embedded this way, the nag screen doesn't pop up and the menu is hidden.
