i found the answer:
well, not a clear cut answer...should still ask them
i agree with the last posts, the reason i wrote what i wrote is "...I bet we could do a cf3 clone skin..."
i do support manipulating an idea or a design, just not a copy of it (o;'
good luck with you designs....
im manipulating there volume idea as we speak.
Its a side project...it may never turn into anything...i may never have time to even start (unless another skinner wants to give it a shot)...but it could be fun just to see what comes out of an open mobile/cf blend. Obviously it could never look the same due to different controls used, rendering methods , etc. but an interpretation using the framework would still be pretty cool anyway.Quote:
We initially had no problems with an opensource program using a skin look alike
Im using overlay from gmpc and gonna photoshop it rearrange DFX bottom buttons and "duplicate the volume cause I need room for a Voice icon on all screens anyhow and the CF's was the answer as I apparently was not intelligent enough to come up with that idea..
I would say just stay clear.
The main reason for Veetid (David of Fluxmedia) post quoted earlier was a (now banned) user, used a skin created by CdRsKuLL, based on the then CF skin with their permission, running on RR to promote a hardware solution he was trying to flog at one of the big carshows. (his excuse was that his custom software solution wasn't quite ready for the show so he used RoadRunner to demo it :rolleyes:)
So, while your project may never come to the main stream CarPC hobbyist, there is a chance someone may use it to demo something they are selling, which would invite legal action from the CF team.
Obviuosly individual users could use the PSD's supplied in Fluxmedia SDKs to create a skin based on that design for any frontend. Which is fine for their own personal use.
However should it be posted on the forum it will more than likely be removed and the user banned.
Same applies to any skin which resembles the CF skins too closely even without using their PSDs. (Unless they have Fluxmedia's permission)
i should add - this is the way open mobile handles volume control....except our slider drops in from the top.
Shame RR cant do animations :P
open mobile huh.. hmmm.. damn thats a step better than Riderunner I aint seen no independant type drop it like that especially over the current screen.. is that done with Overlay?
