    skin format

    okay, maybe someone can help me out..

    i made some nice skins (i'll post pics in a bit) that use photos as the background. i really had to play around with the image size to make it look normal on my 7" lilliput (16:9) but i got it to work and it looks great but...
    in the audio screen, is there a way to get the folder list to be transparent so that i see just the text of the files instead of a big black box over my background? same with the scroll bar...
    anyone had any luck with this?

    new skin



    SORRY IF THIS OFFENDS ANYONE. I WILL REMOVE IT IF NECESSARY.

    it works well, but as i said before, in the audio_normal screen, there is that hideous black playlist box. can it be made transparent so the text 'floats' above the picture?

    No unfortunately I hard coded it to be black background. It was simply too much coding to make the skins either show in the filelists or to make them transparent, so I made the decision to just make them black. Sorry. No offense taken, and very nice skin by the way. Do you have a complete version that I can post on my website?

    yeah. sure thing. i'll email them to you once i'm done tweakin them. perfection is a must...

    i found that it requires a bit of resizing so that the background image doesn't look flattened on the lilliput 7". (800x450) if anyone wants a skin made or has an idea for one let me know and i'll toss one together..

    yeah, it's pretty much done. i'll get a copy over to red for him to post on his site tonight or tomorrow. as far as using any picture... yeah you can, but it takes time. i had to change the size of the original skin to 800x450, then build the skin, then resize it back to 800x600. on a regular screen it looks streched top to bottom, but when you run it on a 16:9 aspect screen (lilliput 7") it looks right. the real tricky part was making the center logo so it looked seamless with the background. that took alot of patience and math but i got it workin. long story short, once you figure it out, it's pretty easy. i could throw a new one together in maybe 15 min.

    and so far i only did the main, media, and audio screens. i'll do the rest tonight prob.
