  • Skullster Skin.. Please help me finish this skin

    ok.. first off this is a module skin.. which means I've done most of the work so you have a basic layout, and anything in the middle can be changed.

    I havent done much on this, but you will see how easy it is to add your own stuff.



    things I have done..

    Main menu ( password is 1111 ) you can change this in menu.txt

    Audio
    Audio Browser
    Video
    Video Browser
    GPS (sort of)
    Exit
    Skin Browser

    I know theres loads to do, but if you feel like you can help then please do.

    Now this skin uses freedrive as well, infact gps is on all pages. You will need to edit the sdk.ini file in freedrive to look something like this;

    FDSPEED=
    FDSATS=RoadRunner
    FDSATIND=RoadRunner
    FDETA=RoadRunner
    FDETR=RoadRunner
    FDHEAD=
    FDROAD=RoadRunner
    FDLONG=
    FDLAT=
    FDALT=
    FDTIME=
    FDDATE=
    FDEND=
    FDDIST=
    FDUNITS=
    FDMAN=
    FDNEXTMAN=
    FDNEXTSTREET=
    FDNEXTMANDIST=
    FDMANFULL=RoadRunner
    FDCAMS=

    Now... as I said everything is module.. so in the skin folder you will find a templete folder, in this are some blank images and also a blank.skin this holds all the buttons/info for the blank skin, all you need to do is add the middle :-)

    There is a little flash in it, mainly the security page and the volume bar at the side.

    Security page..
    This can be configured by editing the menu.txt

    &password=1111&
    &exit=EXIT&
    &numberofattempts=3&

    //password - Just change the password to whatever you want (0-9)
    //exit - Command excuted when password is wrong
    //numberofattempts - how may times your allows to get it wrong before above command is used

    you can set your password / number of attempts / action if wrong

    If you dont want to use this, just open up RRconfig and put something like AUDIO in the Start command to execute box

    Please let me know what you think :-)

              I love the volume button. Out of the way, yet still a design element on every page that's not intrusive or "Oh there's the volume button".

              I should add that I actually really like the module idea. I love the idea of static buttons on every page, and info that shows on every page.

              Can't wait to see what's next!

                    The second one should be possible with a little flash or extra integration... I haven't found time to test this feature (already implemented) for MM... but there's some bug in MM's distance information (or so I hear).. I believe Arathranar is working on something to allow displaying the map in different screens... for FreeDrive you can easily do that by doing the same of the GPS screen on the audio player screen (embed&cut window) -- this would display FD's menus though.. and it may not "FIT" in the small space correctly..

                      Hi Guino.. not had a play, but does the flash sit ontop of the album jpg, or does it sit below.. I could make a flash gps direction and also make it transparent when no route is played so if there is one you can see the album jpg.

                        The flash sits behind it, so if an album art is available it would likely be displayed on top of the flash.. This would be no different with the MM directions currently implemented (and untested)... so the only way to display directions is to reserve screen space for it to display..

                              Also love what you have started. I'd finish off the job except I got zero artistic skill even though you already set the foundation.
