    Another ME Skin

    Well guys I havent been around for a while since school and all. I made this new skin with the buttons towards the edges and it seems Media Engine places the buttons on top of the interface, meaning the "off icon" and lower "clock bar" are covered all together, yet ME works fine.

    I will be uploading this skin soon to the Media Engine website http://www.zcentric.com/~mitcht/index.php.

    I purposely placed the icons on the edges so if anyone decides they want to chage the background they can do so as they please.

    I'll include a read me file and this skin also contains BOTH GPS and External Apps icons.

    Since I have received / been asked several requests from people on changing icon themes, backgrounds and colors etc. I've agreed to work on a tutorial on how to make skins for media engine using adobe photoshop and skinmaker. Most of the work is done in photoshop. Skinmaker is used last to place the icons and assign functions. I don't mind helping out with questions just that requests for personalization is very time consuming.

    I'll continue on making new skins . Someone is bound to find one for their liking.

    I will be working on making different steel backgrounds for car logos and then maybe stereo equipment. I will eventually make a background for every car manufacturer that I will release in packs, if its okay with the ME guys!

    Here are the teasers!







    More car logos coming soon.





    You can swap the background with any image.

    Sounds good to me! They look great. Are you Skinning the other pages too? I've added an option to turn off the borders and background on the shapes. That way you can make a seamless interface for all the pages!

    I'll upload the skin this friday. If I can make a decent amount of logo backgrounds ( I've made 14 so far ) I'll include them in a zip file.

    I'm talking about a graphic that seamlessly integrates the buttons at the bottom with the labels and all the rest. When the new option is clicked, there are no borders at all, so everything should be accounted for in the background image. This is in reference to the screens other than the main menu.
