    New Skin. What would you like to See?

    I'm going to make a skinnable skin .

    I want to make a basic layout that is very easy to use (no offense frodo... your player is the by far the best, but I think the skin can be improved), and offers the ability to easily change the colors/background picture.

    Any suggestions?

    I plan on placing the majority of the controls on the bottom of the screen, but I'd like to get rid of some of the clutter.


    Frodo, would it be possible to combine the "next song" and "fast forward" buttons to work like they do in mediacar? From one point, I like the seperation, but combining the two would definately reduce clutter.

    Oh, and a very large clock... that is necessary b/c I have no other clock in my car

    All the skins were done by me, and I am by far a skin master

    If you don't want something visible, make the left and top > 100

    Well, I'd still like to keep the fast forward function. (hold down the "next song" button, and it fast forwards) Also... would there be a way to combine the Play and Pause button? (you hit play, and if there is a song playing, it pauses).

    I like your skins, and I'm not sure if I can make anything better... but i'm sure going to try .

    Just started...

    For right now, I've kept all of frodo's buttons. I've just been moving stuff around.

    My first ver. will probably still have all the same buttons (if that's ok), because I'm not much of an artist. Eventually, I'll get to drawing.

    graphics, smaphics do what you want man. Just don't redistribute the whole app with a skin that says FunkDaMonkManPlayer 2.1 or some ****.

    I kinda like that

    Well, I got my layout ready on photoshop. Tomorrow I will remap the .ini file and take it for a test drive.

    Ok... so I decided that I would end up spending more time trying to edit your buttons, than I would making my own. Here is a preview of the song control buttons .

    This looks very good, but I'l like to put your attention to the fact that the stock frodoplayer skin is readable in full sunlight with a non sun-readable LCD screen...

    I was amazed how I could not read anything from my OS but could navigate the frodoplayer without any troubles.

    Back to topic: the symbols used for this button set are great.
