Thanks, I have downloaded 'Font used by skin' from
Now my problem is I am stupid.
I have un-zipped them but what now?
Do I install them as windows fonts somehow or just copy them into the frodo directory?
Not that stupid but..
I have installed the fonts to windows via Control Panel/Fonts/Install new..
Now I get this..
Right, I have set my DPi to 75%.
This is working with the song info - I can see it all!
2 probs.. 1st I can barly see the songs in the list on my 7" screen.. The text is too small espically when driving..
2nd the skin seems to be messed up - the bottom of the mitsubishi logo is getting repeated on the top ang covering the window.. see below..
I just found out what your prob is:
you have to tick the boxes in settings 1/main info screen.... this is for long name albums,titles and artists so the name will be moving along the vis box instead of try to put all of the info in it.
About fonts and logo you have to set you DPI to normal but even with that you may want to increase the fonts size via skin .ini
If i tick the 'scroll title' box it works (moves from left to right). But it allways did.
I un-ticked them as i didnt like it. In full-screen it just looks like there is a lot of wasted space and a lot of empty background.
My music is stored MEDIA/ARTIST/ALBUM/Artist-Album-Title.
As frodo uses 2 lines (just cuts the bottom one off by half) is there no way of making the display area bigger? Reducing dpi size works but is too small to read.
This is not (afaik) a skin issue. I get the same problem with out a skin installed.
Besides increasing the number for fonts in the .ini files I don't know what else to tell you...... ummm Maybe you want to make a litle test:
Back up your skin.ini, DL the file from the thread below and overwrite the original one, then open FP and check if the fonts change or not.
