  • Shock Version 7

    Windows stole my idea!!! LOL

    All jokes aside, I am picking back up where I left off almost two years ago when I released Shock V6. I need to learn a lot of the new features and skin commands, since the older skins are lacking a lot of the nice features in the new RR codebase.

    For those who have not used any of the shock skin series the philosophy behind the skin is a fast, lightweight, attractive and easy to use interface, designed with the driver in mind. Buttons and labels stay as static as possible, to increase driver attention on the road and not on the screen. Anyway this full version upgrade will be a complete new code base and source artwork. Format is going to be changed from 800x480 to 800x600 for better compatibility with iGO and Garmin GPS. As always, I design my skins to fit my specific needs but I keep it all open source; including the artwork as to not limit the use and development. (look what happened to my original carwings art+code source )

    I do not have a finite release date for Shock V7 but here is a teaser screener of the new GDI+ artwork.

                  I used this same layout with my first new age skin.
                  Looking great.

                      Good News,

                      So far I have completed the art and code for:

                      MAIN_SCREEN
                      AUDIO_PLAYER
                      AUDIO_BROWSER
                      VIDEO_PLAYER
                      VIDEO_BROWSER
                      RADIO_PLAYER
                      EXTERNAL_GPS

                      Everything is running and looking good.

                      Skin design is very functional! Can access any screen from every skin, a SHOCK trademark!

                      I am going to be adding:

                      SKIN_BROWSER
                      MIXER
                      BACKGROUND_CHANGER

                      and that should be enough to release a beta version of 7 while I work on the FULL_MENU.SKIN

                          Thanks Treetop!

                          Still workin on that, I have the iList working good, but need to figure out how to get it transparent.

                          Did the first beta run moving it from my devel system to the truckPC and ran it on my way to school tonight. Audio/Video/Nav Works splendid. Looks like I need more work on the Radio screen, it does not initalize the tuner unless I go to a different skin and launch it. I know it's missing something, but good news is the HD parts work, and so do the preset buttons

                              also.. the radio should initialize in the background... even if you dont have that skin
