  • cmdRR-2 - Tall / Vertical Skin - Beta Released

    Rather than creating a new thread for cmdRR-2, I've decided to just use this thread.

    cmdRR - Tall Skin - rev 07-2010
    {DOWNLOAD} (7mb)

    I'm using this in my Hyundai Elantra with a 12" screen in portrait mode. There is also a function that is made specifically for my machine that can be changed, more below. The main purpose of this skin is to replace the entertainment I had in my car, thus I wanted to keep the audio player on top, like it would be if I kept my stereo.

    Since there aren't many tall screen users (or skins) this is what I've been using in my car, and found to be relatively easy to use. I do not claim to be an artist or great programmer, but do know enough to get myself into things, so this is a 'basic' skin, but building on functionality.

    Originally this skin has been made to run on RoadRunner, but I stay on top of those updates, so I know it works on RideRunner. Provided I'm able to come up with some changes I will update once a month, if there are no significant changes then no update.

    Plugins supported:
    OBDMPG - mezz64
    MobilePhone.net - lambosprit
    RR Media - Blue ZX3 (needs some screens/popups styled)
    MP3Art - mitchjs/guino
    WIFI - El Camino (needs final touches)
    Maintenance - Sonicxtacy02 (needs final touches)

    Embedded Apps:
    iGuidance v4

    Features:
    - HPDIM - script to toggle the ALS on or off. This is used in conjunction with my nite_cmdRR skin. Typically CPU/Indicator area (can be changed with dimmer in topbuttons.inc for most screens)
    - dimmer - hold CPU/Indicator area to access popup
    - albumart screen - click on album art - clicking screen will go to previous
    - screensaver - click on RIGHT half of compass - clicking screen will go to previous
    - blank screen - click on LEFT half of compass - clicking screen will go to previous

    Screens To Create:
    video player
    app launcher
    XM
    radio player
    others...TBD

    Eventual Plugin Support:
    RREXTENDED
    COVERJUKE
    RRUpd8
    others... as I build on my hobby or if someone requests

    Not sure what to say really. But lets begin.

    Good to see a tall skin, as you said not many around.

    It looks very simple, which can be good, however to me it looks like you have squashed a normal skin into the top third and let the OBD stuff take over the other 66% (mixing my numbers to make sure people are reading carefully)

    Be interesting to see some other screens, Navigation for example.

    Also just had a sneak look at your install thread, that's a big screen.

      yea, I've made the top section pretty standard on all screens... I mean 12" is alot of space to fill... and may have the top section a little busy, with the audio info I enclosed up there.

      I did some reorganizing and removed some things I had on that screen and think it's pretty damn bare... might just have to put a picture browser or something there with pron haha
      I'll take more pics tonight.

      The GPS is basically the entire bottom with the exception of buttons down the left side. for quick access to favourite locations and stuff... I'm using iGuidance.

        Not too fond of the icons on the buttom but everything else looks good. I would take the time to do on/off graphics for the shuffle and repeat buttons so when you touch the button, it changes color inside the button; that would preclude having the indicators show-up somewhere else.

          That looks very appealing! I never considered using anything but 50/50 on the sizing for the separate sections. I think I'll play with the 33/66 on my skins this weekend. Can't wait to test it in my cars! Don't forget to include an optional full screen for Nav (I've found it to be invaluable when navigating in an unfamiliar city.)

            consider that done... and made the clock/date larger and removed the CPU %

            I've got one section on the top that needs to be filled with something, or I'll just redo the top buttons to make them a little larger.. guess that's one idea.
            As far as the top being cluttered up... yea likely, but since this is replacing my stereo I'm keeping the audio controls for most screens (except for background and pluginmgr ones). I'm slowly putting my 'styling' into everything, so those logos will be gone and I'll see about even adjusting the flash gauges on the bottom.

              I don't know if full screen GPS would change much... it's pretty freakin huge!

              Also I don't know why, but on my test machine the GPS isn't fully embedding nicely, it's leaving like half a toolbar across the top... Though it is truly embedded with iG Native mode on.

                  I'm back at it... well never really stopped.

                  Running into a slight bump. Trying to get an indicator showing up on any screen that's relating to the mobilephone.net plugin.
                  The indicator works well on the mobilephone.net screen, but not on any other screen. Do I need to work with some variables or am I missing something more simple?
                  It's not just with the phone. I moved the obdmpg reset buttons to a tools screen and they're no longer working.

                    okay, scratch the indicator issue... it helps if the other screen on images have something to indicate

                    any ideas about the button though?

                    Should I share what I've got created so far to be ripped apart?

                      I like the idea of the tall screen... for a larger screen like you have it works great!

                      Nice gauges BTW

                        Umm... yea.. Thanks!!
                        Was gonna ask you once I get other things sorted out if I could possibly get the flash files to do a colour change on them. Or I might actually have a stab at my own gauge to match the car more.
                        Those icons being used may look familiar too I don't claim to have designed it all... just putting it together.

                          Let's have at it! I'd love to play with another tall skin.

                          RELEASE IT!
