  • Recommend me a skin

    Well, I just spent several hours browsing through the skin sub-section, and I'm really at a loss to decide what skin to run. Here's what I want:
    -Music
    -GPS (both navigation and other neat features)
    -OBDII (gauges would be fantastic)

    I love the look of the iPhone skins. I prefer "clean and simple" to "wicked awesome!"

    I'm probably going to pick up iGuidance for navigation, and I understand I'll need to use a port splitter to get GPS functionality into other parts of RR. I understand that DashCommand is fairly popular for implementing OBD gauges, but I think I've seen some other OBD solutions in development.

    Suggestions?

              It's not my style at all. I don't like the colors, fonts, or the text positioning. I have a little bit of a background in graphic design, so little things tend to bug me. I already have plans for my own skin, but I'd like to start off with something simple.

              Let's see some more suggestions!

                There's a thread in the skins section that has a list of every skin available and a link to check each one out.

                  Yeah, I looked through a lot of those but most of them seemed to be "MY FURST TIME USING GIMP" skins, and it was just a lot of garbage to wade through.

                    Wade farther, I'm not going to do it for you.

                      I'm not asking for anyone to do work for me, I just asking for suggestions based on experience.

                        In my own defense... Or for anyone else reading this post, as far as the DFX skin is concerned, the Font color, Background color (Or choose a wallpaper), progress bar color, font style, Main menu button placement, main menu layout ect ect can be changed from within the skin, in the settings screen.

                        As far as text placement that is pretty much hard coded, aside from editing the skin files, as all of the text in the skin are just labels and not in the actual images.

                              every skin we give for nothing is a gift.
                              take it or leave it, if you could it better...show us your skin.

                              but dont ask before you do it for the PSDīs of mine.

                              i like your skins, a lot of ideas you give me with them.
