            LOL! Thanks. Yeah, I've been running in my car and testing functionality for the past few months. Wanted to make sure all was neatly organized and easy to navigate.

            Let's face it, everyone in here knows that you should not be using your carPC while driving, but I'm sure not everyone follows that rule.

            So I kept re-working the skin til it was easy to navigate.

            I must have re-coded the skin well over a dozen times, I think, just to get it to this point.

              This is a great looking mmi skin! One request though. can you set it up so that you could choose your own logo for the background? Some skins have this option, and I must admit i dont know how to do it without that option.

                Yeah, there is an option for it.

                Go to -> Setup -> Next -> Logo Format

                You have the option to use any image file or flash file and can define the size of your logo.

                      Thanks for bump. Back in the swing of things and trying to finish up some skins that are not included so far.

                      Some updates:
                      - I've restructured the Utilities menu to remove the "Standard" features and made all the slots user defined. (i.e. If you don't need a web browser, you don't have to have a button for it)
                      - Modified the select drive menus to include indicators if the drive exists.
                      - Added new option to add current playlist to an existing playlist in the Audio Playlist Menu.
                      - New Rainlender skin for a more integrated look.

                      I'm sure there've been other stuff. That's all I can think at the top of my head atm.

                          Sure..why not? I'll post it up next time I put up an update.

                          The skin image files are flexible enough for those who want to mess around and can't wait. They are all blank template images that is used and re-used in different skin files. The look and functionality are augmented using the IMG commands.

                          I used nothing but label codes and patched in .pngs to keep the footprint small.

                            Audi skin

                            Hello Sal,

                            Love this skin.

                            I'm looking for a skin that best fits the look of my brand new Audi A4 (with the color dig. display between the meters (you know : set 1, set 2, menu) , in place of the red version)

                            This is the first one who fit : think I will use the white interface, as there is a lot of white also used in this small display

                            Keep on the good work !!

                              Thanks for the kind comment. I'll be updating and working on this skin as often as I can to keep up w/ updates, plugins, and new features.

                              So, I've updated to RRv9-2-2007 on my test machines, and there was a bug using the LOADIMG command. As a result, if you've updated to the latest RR version, you'll find some icons not loading, as well as, the utilities icon selector skin not working properly. Guino is aware and will have a fix for the next release.
