  • Zune UI Skin

    I saw a Zune at the store the other day and instantly fell in love with the UI. It's so simple yet so awesome looking, and I was thinking it might make a good RR skin. What do you guys think? I started playing around with the rr skin editor and I can see it would probably take quite a while to make a complete skin, so if there's no other interest I'm probably just going to make it for the specific things I do.

    Anyway, here's an idea of what the main screen might look like





    does anyone know if there's a way to make a skin so that the background image is easy for the user to replace?
    It's been a while since I used roadrunner and I don't really remember if there is or not.

    I'd really like to make the skin so that the background image can be easily changed by anyone

    Incidentally, it's really a shame that the Zune is so lame (no podcast support, DRM up the ***, crappy desktop software etc...) cause the hardware and UI are really awesome.

    Normally the only way to do that is to use flash, however kpjuk has come up with a 'new' way of doing that, check his Minimal Skin thread

          Has anybody tryed to make skins in Vista?

          Everytime i try to create a new skin it comes out with an error..

          Run-time error `32765`:
          The common dialog function failed during initialization.
          This error often occurs when insufficient memory is available.

          Anyone tryed this error before?
          I have even tryed runing it like Xp sp2 under Vista.

            I went back to school this semester, and that along with work monopolizes most of my time. I really do want to make this skin, so look for an update sometime in may after school gets out for the summer

            Hopefully, ms doesn't sue me for it
