  • Why cant i use the front ends on my system

    Ive just installed my system in my car with a 7" screen. the computer wants to use resolution 1024x768 which makes the writing and buttons very small.ive noticed that most of the front ends work best with 800x600 but my screen doesnt like that resolution as it will hide half of the view.

    What can i do to put it right.

    what are the specs of you SYS?

    With FP you can use advance settings for display.

        yup, 60 Hz will do the job and your 800x600 will be just perfect.

          Well that depends cus if he is using a VIA Mobo M or MII board plus a xenarc, the 800x600 at 60hz is no going to work (hence my question about his SYS) he is going to have to use 75hz.

            How about making a skin for 1024x768?
            Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
            How about the Wiki?

              i know at least Frodoplayer and RoadRunner will let you change the screen size of a skin by editing the general.ini (RR) and frodoplayer.ini (FP)

              just in case you cant get your monitor to run at 800x

                  It's a valid suggestion, no?
                  Have you looked in the FAQ yet?

                      why would someone do one JUST for you?

                      That said, Chuck in the RR forum has a 1024x768 skin, I think.

                          They could tell you how to do one if you ask nicely enough. Maybe someone might even share a psd file for you to work with too

                            when you say hide half the view... do you mean half the screen of the front end?? and if so.. are you using frodoplayer when this happens?? if so.. i think you might want to search under advanced screen settings for frodoplayer..
