  • Skin in another position

    Hello,

    I made a skin called ARTIST_INFO.skin. When a press the button for this skin (for example in AUDIO_PLAYER) the ARTIST_INFO is in the center of the AUDIO_PLAYER. How can I say, that the ARTIST_INFO should go to 300,240?

    Thanks

    I'm assuming you ARE using the skin editor. If you want a popup effect, you should use the MENU command to load the skin, this will show it centered. It is possible to make the popup display at specific locations but it is a little more complex ..

      Hi,


      Yes I use the menu command. The Problem is my "popup" is in the center, but I wanna see it there:

      x: 320
      y: 240

      Thanks

        The easiest way is to make a full size screen in which the EMPTY image is a BMP and has a pink area which will be "cut off" the screen. All other images of the same skin should have the same size.

          Hi,

          Thank you, guino, you allways try to help me but I tried your idea for 2 hours and it donīt work like I want. Nothing is "cutting" out.
          So I tried another way. Donīt know if this is the best way but itīs working. I made a copy of my audio_player skin und called it artist_info. The only thing I changed is, that the artist_info show me infos about the music instead of the playlist.
          Thatīs the way I made it and itīs working, what do you mean? Is it a problem to have 2 "audio_player skins" (audio_player and artist_info)?

          Thanks

            TI-eJTSCH when you tried cutting out part of your skin, were you sure to use an _EMPTY Image?

              That's probably the only way to keep the buttons working .. If you need help getting the other way to work, please post your .skin files and the images you made so we can look at them.

                  I assume your using a menu to show the second picture.. Its easy to get it to show where you want it.. just do the menu the same size as your skin, but then cut out the bits you dont need in it by setting its colour to FF00FF (pink) this will then allow you to do what you want..

                  I have attached a picture to show you what I mean.. the _empty.jpg (.gif) will need to be different to the _off.jpg.. can be the same picture but must have a different name for this to work.

                  hope this helps

                    Hello,

                    I made now two pictures (looks the same) like yours called _empty.jpg and _off.jpg, the position is correct but i can see the pink color. Something is going wrong.

                        Hi,

                        please have a look. _off and _on looks the same. The first picture is the _empty.jpg.
                        The original pics are in the BMV2 Skin from guinos homepage.

                            Now I made what you said -> all pics same size with pink round them. Now the position is right but the skin shows the pink color.

                              make sure you save the files as .bmp and not .jpegs I made this mistake a while ago. Jpeg will compress the image and the pink color ends up being not exactly pink, but close to pink.
