  • Home made skin help

    I'm new to the skin making scene, and even the carpc scene and I've run into a few...quirks shall we say that I have been unable to find a result for by searching.

    My skin has the title and author playing on all screens. When I test it out, on the main screen it shows it exactly how I want it, on the screen with the playlist it shows with a magenta coloured background. The coding is exactly the same for each skin file so why is it pink?

    After putting all of my mp3s into the music folder, when they play, they show the title in the title label and the artist in the artist label but in the playlist it shows, for example "www.bizzydownload.tk" and nothing else. The only place where I can find that is in the actual filename which is "02-2pac-2_of_amerikaz_most_wanted-www.bizzydownload.tk.mp3". I've checked the ID3 tag and properties and everywhere I can think of. Why is it just showing that?

    Thanks everyone!

    Search for "pink ilist" - may find something. IIRC, it has something to do with DirectX

      The answer is the dash in the filename. RR default to displaying only what's after the last one when showing mp3s by filename. Change your settings in RRConfig-Music-Page 1 and check whats in the "playlist", "browse" and "titles after character" blocks: mine says %title% %title% and " - "

        Thanks for your help guys, both problems are fixed.

        Now I have a question rather than a problem...
        I want to make it so that my MP3 playlist and Sirius channels slide onto the page when the button is clicked. Kind of like what happens when you click the >> arrows in Google Maps to show/hides the directions or other programs/websites like that. Hard to explain but you can see it in action when I'm done. I figure from reading I can use Flash to do it. I know how to make the Flash video and I know how to play it in RR, but my question is, is it possible to have the playlist/channels slide in with it by using "S" in the RR editor? I don't want to put it where the list will eventually end up because it will look bad having the MP3s there before the graphic box.

          Is this possible/shameless bump?

            A long time ago on a skin far far away, I used the EFFECTXX command to do something like what you describe. Guino has 10 effects defined, but nowhere can I find what each number corresponds to what effect!

              If you load another screen that looks like the original with the list on the side, you can probably use the effect 4 or 0 to make it show up on the side, but it's not going to be a slide effect, but a progressive display of the list on the left side.

              @GizmoQ:
              Here's a list of possible effects in RR:

              -1=Disabled
              0=Fade to new screen
              1=Wipe Up
              2=Wipe Down
              3=Wipe Left
              4=Wipe Right
              5=Wipe Up&Down
              6=Wipe Left&Right
              7=Implode
              8=Slide Up
              9=Slide down
              10=Random

                Thanks to both. I'll play around with it and see if I can get it to do something I like.

                  Thanx G,

                  I'll pass this on to Carputer1 in hopes he will add it to the new docs.
