  • Another n00b's first skin

    This is an attempt at creating a skin from scratch for my Drop Top '98 Mustang Cobra . I'm going from the ground up so all comments, questions and suggestions are welcome. Let me know whatcha think. Thanks :-) This is for my own personal use, but if you want the files... keep on reading ;-)

    I moved all screenshots from the different posts to this one. So far most screens are done. Left to do is OSK, xm, cam, and embedding a few additional programs. If you'd like to take a look at the ones I modified, I have jpgs/psds in folders at this location: CobraSkins. Skins start at "CobraSkin_01" up to "CobraSkin_06" the later being the newest.

        looks 100 times better with the brushed aluminium type type effect, and the cobra looks much nicer smaller in size. Not sure i like the font or the progress control buttons atms

          Thanks for the input, lol you're the first and only so far, I am wondering though, what do you mean by "the progress control buttons atms"? are you referring to the track control buttons? Thanks again for the input. :-)

                it really depends what you're creating the skin for. if its for your own personal use and you like the progress control and bevelling on the buttons then leave them but if you want to release it publicly and get people using it then your going have to take on board their comments and alter it. My latest skin ive not shown to anybody as I made it for me so as long as I like the look of it thats all that matters. imo anyways

                  Thank you all for your input it is appreciated. Right now I'm just creating the skin for my personal use, but since it is a first, I did want to see what everyone thought about it, but... if someone asks for it, I'll be more than happy to share

                        iGuidance?

                        I see your sig says iGuidance... is that what you are using in those screen shots... I am looking for something new, have it down to iGuidance or Streets and Trips 2006... that is a great picture of the way it integrates!!

                        I think the skin looks pretty good.. simplicity is good.

                          Yes that's iGuidance in those screenshots. it was easy to embed (didn't use skinbedder or anything). to replicate the 'regular' program commands, I used AutoIt3 to make the left side buttons work with a few *.exe scripts. Works Great! I had used iGuidance before ever creating a 'carputer', and have always been pleased with it's functionality.

                          Thanks for your compliments :-)

                              Very nice looking. How did you get the brushed look on the background? I have an 05 mustang gt that I'm doing a skin for(link in my sig check it out) and I have the upgraded dash kit with the brushed aluminium through out and I have been trying to get a good match with no luck but what you have there looks close only not blue of course hehe
