    ETA on next release is Wed morning before noon.

    Did some testing in my car today and made some changes. The font i was using is nolonger being used, it looked ok in my house, but in the car its a tad bit hard to read because of the style.

    STATUS:

    Vis or Info is now bigger than ever and covers the PL & DL until toggled off. can be seen in last screen shots. I replaced the album art in the vis mode with car logo, so you can change this to whatever you want. I think it onlly shows up when you dont have album art for whatever tracks you have loaded, not sure.

    DVD menu actually didnt need any work as i planned. Didnt originaly look ok to me in my house, but looks fine in the car. The only issue is on the dvd screen you see Two menu buttons, one on teh top and one on the bottom. The one on the top is the only one that supports that button function, will remove the bottom one in a later update when i skin any unskinned areas.

    ETA on XM and FM screens is end of week/ this weekend. Along with Apps Screen which is currently at 90%

    When in fullscreen mode, you can toggle through the different modes by clicking above the menu button. Hidden feature i didnt find till combing through the .ini file

    Thats about it or all i can think of right now.


    HATS OFF to frodo for making it possible for me to make the skin function the way i really wanted to. I am loving the new VIS mode and allready have an idea for the next skin, based off the icons ripped on the menu screen, hint, hint.

    later

    It really sucks that exit on the shutdown menu is on the other side
    of the screen from exit on the regular menu.

    Ive been thinking about that too, at first i was going to keep it as the first button, so it would be closer to the exit button on the shutdown menu. But then it would be right above the mp3 (cancel) button and didnt want anyone (mainly me) to click it by mistake. I also wanted to keep certain buttons grouped, with gps, pics, cam etc on the right side. Which forced the exit button to the right side menu. Putting it at the top of the right menu is even worse so i ended up sticking it at the bottom.

    Since i really dont know how other people use the shutdown menu, some dont exit and just Hib for example, i figured this would just have to be a compromise. Its not a function you should be accessing all the time, only when your exiting the car for the most part.
    So with it being the least used function, its the last in the list. Who ever wants to exit FP anyway

    Thanks, but i cant take full credit for the MENU screen, 90% of it is all mine created by me from scratch as well as 100% of the rest of the skin. But the icons on the menu screen were ment to be place holders for icons i would create myself but ended up just likeing them as they are. I got them from the alienware object desktop theme and object dock (really cool windows skinning app)

    hey, liquid.... i was wondering why is it when i go to frodoDVD using your skin, the bottom part gets cut out and i still see the main frodo screen down there. The DVD doesnt play full screen. Ideas? Is this a bug? thanks!
