  • I blacked out the LCD background on my Alpine Skin - So much sharper! (pics inside)

    I think this looks a lot sharper than the red checkered. I also changed the eject button into another search button.

    Its not the cards you're dealt, its how you play the hand!

          Same font that Alpine came with. I'd have to look at what it is when I get home

            haha... that means you probably haven't seen the alpine skin with the "INTENDED" look..

            It uses the lcd2.ttf font... from your screen shot and your statement, it's easy to see why you didn't like the "dotted" background -- it was just meant to use with the LCD font which is also Dotted in simulating dotted-grid LCD screen. I'd suggest installing the font and trying the original skin again (just to see what it looks like)... but there's nothing wrong with using a customized skin..

              I like the original look of the skin but I do have readability issues in daylight conditions. Blacking out the background does help and I changed fonts for the track listing to something more clear.

                Hey! My original Amber Skin doesn't have those gps/info/contrast/menu buttons. It doesn't have "displacement bar" too...

                    Oh, weird. I just scrolled up and realized the font on my screen shot. Where did that come from? I have always used the LCD font. I can't begin to explain where the font above came from. However, I like it. I intend to figure out where it came from and start using it. I just loaded RR again and got this



                    Just like I always have. Yeah Guino I realize that the LCD theme was the intended look, but I still personally liked it better blacked out. Actually, I like it better blacked out w/ the above font.

                        Ehem... I thought that changes were into RR skin, not into MM skin...

                        So I'm going to update now. Thanks!

                            OK, After testing I have figured it out. Although Present in the Windows>Font folders, The LCD Font is not activated until, get this, I open the font folder. That's it. Not double clikc the font, but just open the folder. I've tried this on 2 comps at work so far, same result. Very strange. THat SS was taken off my GF's comp.

                              umm... how did you install the font.. typically, if you don't copy it into the fonts folder using Windows Explorer (Folders), it just copies the file and it may not work all the time.. I noticed this when I tried to unzio the font directly into the fonts folder (doesn't work).
