    PROJECT IN PROGRESS...


    This first post will be updated as I progress.

    If anyone wants to see a particular screenshot please ask in this thread (providing there's a tick next to the item!)

    PROGRESS as of 25/09/06:

    Appearance Menu
    Audio Browser
    Audio Player
    Exit Menu
    External GPS (FreeDrive)
    GPS Menu
    Menu (Revised-See Post #35)
    NumOSK
    Osk
    PhoCo
    Radio Menu Function
    Radio Player
    Video Browser
    Video Player

    Please be patient, as I'm creating 4 textures + 4 accent colours for each screen as well as doing a night-version.

    Stoo, like I said in the fd thread: amazing...

    have you given thought, however, to making this all a RR skin, and getting labels from FD sdk, and then you can have a "small mode" just by loading another skin in RR, I believe it will resize the FD window according to the new skin when you change skins (basically, 2 skins, loading FD (same path) and with different sizes for the app)... also would require a clean FD skin which shows only the map

        CONSOLE_RR Skin flavours...

        Just some examples of the colour / texture / brand combinations you can have with the PSD's.

        I'm going to alter the Menu screen a little from this but these are to whet your appetites...

            I would love the carbon fibre with green layout.. with the green bubble effect key like you have on the wood effect above.. now that would look great in my st220 :-) btw re msn message.. I think you can do multi-commands in RR, so you could have a button that sets RR's night skin and at the same time send the message to freedrive to change its night skin too :-) cant wait for the release.. let me know if u need anything coding in.

            cheers

              Something like this?


              Yep, I'll probably bug you at some point for some coding assistance - I'm pretty au fait with skinning in general (i.e. CONSOLE for Frodoplayer) but would appreciate help with FD elements

                    Yep.

                    Just to save me posting loads of pics, the PSD files which will be released with this skin will contain pretty much every car manufacturer logo and every page will be available in 4 texture and 4 accent colours.

                    That's why this skin is taking so long to make, cos I'm doing 4x the work!



                    P.S. ukMP3car; I may be needing some of that webspace pretty soon

                            I'm not sure that doing the FD application as a RR skin would be a good idea, as FD is run under 'external GPS'. I think Iguidance users wouldn't be too happy with FD labels all over the place!

                            I may come back to this at a later date but for now I'm going to crack on with the rest of the skin
