    There wasn't a zip file. It's this text. Supposedly you just cut and paste it and name the file you put it in theme.ini and it'll work, allowing you to manipulate everything seen in the list. It didn't work for me. I must be making the theme file wrong, but I have no idea how.

    Oh and I do now see the 1 line in the whole thread that has to do with actually changing the size of the street names. Excuuuuuuuuuuussssseee me for not seeing it the first time I read through.

    Oh that file! That one was fun! That one I'm still playing with to adjust the icon sizes and what not. That file just gives you already made bigger icons to import with when you're using the resource hacker. That file is a very handy start. But once you start playing with it you realize there is SOOOO much more you can do.

    I thought you meant the color changing theme file.

I did make a theme.ini file as was recommended in this thread. It didn't seem to change anything. And I got under the impression that it was just supposed to change the colors to add more contrast. But it didn't even do that for me.

    Just because I didn't realize the answer was staring at me doesn't mean I didn't read them or that I need anything "spoon fed" to me, "again".

    A simple "Hey man, we figured it out. You must have missed the answer. Read post 18" would have sufficed. The attitude seemed a little childish.

    If I read your attitude incorectly, then nevermind. But if you were trying to be a smartass, I think that's a little juvenile. Sort of like someone who can't be good enough unless they can show others they knew something before someone else.

    not trying to be a smart ***, just simply trying to stear you in the right direction. I dont need to show anyone i know something before them, im here to help anyone who needs it (just ask around) and you will see the same.
    Read the information that was given to you, if you dont understand it say you dont understand it and also say what part of it you dont understand. But simply saying i did read it leaves a lot to be desired if you want help.
    no one else seemed to have any problems reading the same info and getting everything to work. You even posted the contents of the needed file "after" i suspect you actually read/ processed everything.

    why not just give you a step by step from the first place? Well ive done that allready, not for you but for many of the people replying to this thread, which is huge if you havent noticed (which is why i pointed you to the exact post number that would give you the most info). But all that takes time, time that not everyone has to dedicate to every person who ask a question every time.
    Again, not trying to be a smart ***, but all the info is right here, and no one else is having a problem understanding it. Which makes people think you didnt do your homework like you said, which makes people less responsive to your request.

    "A simple "Hey man, we figured it out. You must have missed the answer. Read post 18" would have sufficed. The attitude seemed a little childish. "

    I thought thats exactly what i did when i told you to look at the specified post? NO?

    anywho, it seems you have the info you need to make the street names bigger. If this is still not working for you please say so. Im sure someone will help you. Maybe even me.

    Well I'm glad to see I took that in the wrong way. So many people are so very helpful (not to even mention how knowledgable most of the regulars are) I was annoyed that someone would break from that routine to be a snob.

    I'm truly glad I was wrong!

    I read your post at work today about 5 minutes after a drug addict (That's who I deal with) blew up in my face. I didn't have a very positive view of humanity at that point. I am glad to see that I saw it from a bad perspective. Sorry to have called you out for something you didn't do.

    As for the last line of the theme.ini file, what has everyone found to be a workable size to put in there?

    the size thats in the fine now are the ones i typed in and are what i use. 22 may be a better number you just have to play with it depending on how far your screen is from you while driveing etc. Also feel free to edit any of the road colors and such, the file thats here has a lot of custom colors i picked for myself (only for night mode) that you may or may not like.

    I'm a drug addiction counselor. One tends to get testy at time in my line of work. haha

    I've not managed as far as iGuidance goes (back to the point) to change the pointer to the BMW logo, complete with changing the blue in the logo to red and yellow depending on GPS signal. I've increased the font size of the roads. What I need to do now is increase the size of the icons.

    Having points of interest is worthless if you can't see which ones are little dollar signs and which are gas pumps. Anyone know a good icon editor?

    Also can I change the basic map color? I don't like the brown or the blue.

    Well Ijust test drove the system with all the new settings. (Okay SOME of the new settings)

    I had the bigger street names on. The bigger menus on. Bigger zoom buttons. And my own custom bigger BMW pointer on. That's the damn neatest feature int he whole modifying iGuidance thing. You can change the cursor to anything. You could have a little tiny picture of your head in there if you wanted. So much fun.

    Much easier to use the program now.
