  • Brush Metal Vortex Update

    Hi, This is my update to the Classic Brushed Metal Skin Ive decided to give this skin the much needed makeover implimenting the new features for Road Runner check it out.

    CHANGES TO BRUSHED METAL
    25 Feb 2005
    * Audio Player and Menu switched to the Classic Style buttons Why? BIGGER BUTTONS
    + Audio Player displays Album Art is art exists
    + Audio Player displays flash logo (logo.swf) if Art doesnt exist.
    + Video Player has Seek Bar (intregrated to Guino's Brush Metal Update)
    + Audio Browser Shows Current Track
    + Skins Modified to display Motherboard Monitor Temps
    + Quick Launch buttons on Audio Player

    *NEW* 22 March 2005
    - Removed Quick Launch Buttons on Audio Player (I Never used them Anyways)
    + CD, Search, Search Playlist, Remove Track, Clear List now on Audio Player
    + Menu Updated to New Style Menu with TV and PhoneControl Buttons
    * I don't know the skin command to load a CD? Also search all files button currently does not work as road runner doesnt support it yet.

    TODO
    * Minimize Button on Exit Menu
    * Video Player with Top and Bottom Bars (If i can figure out how)

    DOWNLOAD: BrushMetalVorteX.zip

    You will also need the latest version of Brush Metal including the updates you can get them from http://guino.home.insightbb.com/download.html

    If Album art is present then you get the art displayed


    If no album art then Car

    I think it's worth mentioning that the Video Player Update is at the DEFAULT Brush Metal Update... I've also updated the Audio player with the touchwheel with the top portion of your audio player.. thanks!

      Thanks guino saves me from having to do it

      I'll see how things go if people are interested i might add some more things like quick launch buttons to go straight to GPS or Video from Audio Player if i find some space.

        Allot of page views but no replies.

        Anyways here's the screenshot of the Audio Player with buttons at the top for quick launch of DVD etc there is also room there to add more buttons but i don't have transparent images for TV buttons so maybe someone can email be some and i'll create a button there.

        Let me know what you think if you would like this?

          Any chance of posting the pdf files so I can change the emblems to Nissan and the outer glows to orange? I also need to change it to 800X480.

          Love your skin. I would like to use it. Thanks

              Only my logo displays in the audio play screen even if the album art is there. What am I doing wrong ?

              EDIT: Checked your audio_player.skin and noticed the album art entry was edited out..should this be ?
              If I take the edit off, the album art sits behind the logo. If I edit out the logo I just get album art. So I can have art or logo but there is no automatic change to logo if the art is removed from the audio folder ?

                    I have not touched the Video & Audio browsers left them the way they are as we need some of those extra buttons.

                    Those links at the top are quite small but it was the only way i could get em to fit but they work very well.

                        Great, that works fine. Just had to adjust album art for optimum size, as the logo was just showing behind...now working perfect.
                        Thanks,

                          If you let me know what settings you did maybe wil help someone.

                          I have also added a few things today Temprature labels are now back and default is configured to Motherboard Monitor so if you have the Motherboard Monitor program you don't need to modify anything in the skin.

                          * Video is now also scrolling the text.
                          * File Browser displays current playing file at the top simmilar to Main Menu

                          Let me know if there is anything else you would like me to add i'm not very good at creating graphics but i can copy paste stuff nicely

                          I will post my files sometime tonight.

                            Yes i agree with you there i'll see if i can clean things up there as the buttons are to small currently and u need to use nails to click on em. Hopefully i'll have something for you tonight.

                            EDIT: As long as i don't get too ****ed
