  • New skin: Digital Graphite

    Target:
    To do a new skin, trying to improve the Brushed Metal style and functionality.
    First usability, then nice graphics.

    Ideas:
    -Clear and categorized sections:
    1) AUDIO: HD FILES / CD PLAYER / RADIO
    2) VIDEO: HD FILES / DVD PLAYER / TV
    3) GPS
    4) SECONDARY APPS: CALCULATOR / PICTURE VIEWER / WIRELESS...
    5) PHONE CONTROL
    6) OBDII
    - Unified and intuitive controller (one for everything, when it's possible)
    - Buttons with unified size and form (with a "main" button as exception)
    - Easily changeable/adaptable screens/buttons.

    Progress preview:
    Main menu


    Audio files


    Radio


    Video files

      This is a great skin for RoadRunner
      Really like those audio and general info bars.

      What really would be great is to add them at the home screen as well, and scroll the info there. So a little bar at the top can show all the information.
      I have a similar thing with LCDSmartie, ,http://lcdsmartie.sourceforge.net/on my pc, which shows all information you want scrolling along the LCDscreen.

      I guess guido has to make something like that before it can be used in a skin, but maybe LCD support can be converted to text on a infobar?!??

      So maybe it's an idea...
      Finished!

        Already planned.
        The main screen will be consistent with the "active function", mainly the audio player. It's in progress, I hope it'll be ready tomorrow.

          Hey what would be cool is if the up down arrows on the left are for scrolling track by track and the up down ones on the right of the playlist are the page up and page down buttons.

                  Good, very look type cars dashboard.

                  Great buttons, well, simple and of easy intuition.
                  This and the thing important in the skin, to see well without becoming distracted too much...

                  I like it

                    I like it very much, the look is VERY Professional and intuitive. Very nice the cpu load too. I'm curious to view the others screens preview.

                      When this skin is ready, I'll have to add a little code to get the CPU%... but it's nothing too hard..

                      EDIT:
                      Man, I'm definitely going to have some work cut out for the features of this skin.. hahaha

                        Help needed with the "eye candy" part. Could any Photoshop master do the icons for the main screen? Something like the Media Player Classic logo style would be nice. I want to create a high contrast effect, the idea is a colourful icon "displayed" on the "small screens" of the buttons.

                        I've some ideas for the central screen with the brand. Since RR has flash support now... what about touch that screen, see an animation hidding the logo and the buttons (except the icons), and then a winamp visualization? Or maybe something more useful, like a small GPS screen "enbedded" there...





                        Work for guino:
                        If you add support for display a file with the car brand inside, people could add their own brand easily without edit (you must know that I've a Mazda... )
