    Smile Confused's MediaCar skin **V1.0 now available**

    Hi all

    Have started work today on a new skin for MediaCar. These are only the images so far, no "in program" pics yet

    I'll appreciate your feedback, and what/where I can improve it!

    Now, for some pics (old)

    Main Menu
    Play music screen.

    ** UPDATE 11/18/03**

    Version 1.0 is now available for download here!

    **UPDATE 11/13/03**

    Have finished all images. Just need to do the pixel mapping. Here's a preview of a few images

    Main Menu


    Media Player


    Video Player


    Video Player (highlighted) - active selection for all screens follow the same theme


    Hopefully I can get the pixel mapping sorted out within the next few days, then I should be able to release it

    nice start so far,

    if you want a crit.
    IMO

    the first thing you should do is get rid of the box buttons, and just have the image with the text over it.
    It would look a lot cleaner.
    Also, the text is hard to see because its simi-transparent. It should pop out more. Nice icons though.
    Im not sure if pen and pencil is a good icon for
    Apps though. Also the Mixer icon too, looks like the tools would be better for a "settings" icon.

    On the second pic, i would use traditional play, stop icons and make them big. Also get rid of the box buttons here too. Pretty much beveled box buttons are bad.

    Keep it up though, very nice start.

    Nice design.

    You can try to make something more... personnal (position, style).

    the original skin was designed only to be the most "readable" on tft with vga and composite.

    It is currently really a design overview I've been using the default skin for a few days more now, and the position of the buttons are a little "wrong" for me. So shall be moving them around. It was really just a feeler for the style and design
