    Talking My custom frontend **PREVIEW DOWNLOAD ON PAGE 3**

    Hey all

    I started my carpc project back in March, after deciding to write my own custom frontend in VB6.

    it's been thru 4 betas (the first two never made it to the car, and 3 & 4 i grew tired of) and i think that ver.5 (current) is the one i'm gunna stick with.

    It's for my own use, and I don't really plan on distributing it, but I felt the urge i guess to show it off a bit. So far, i've got the MP3 player 80% done, the CD & DVD players 10% done, video file player is about 40% done and the XM radio is 80% done.

    There are bits in this project that don't belong to me, which is the main reason that I don't want to distrobute it. It's also really specific to my personal taste.

    I'd also like to thank Erorus for the recent help with the XM Class for VB6.

    anyway, on to the pics. I've got 2 screen caps so far, and will add as i make more.

    MODS: If i didn't put this in the right spot please move it. Thanks

    MP3 Player

    XM Tuner


    Lemme know what you think, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

    I think that you should share with the rest of the community. I built my front end for myself, but found that it was a heck of alot of fun to share it. I didnt write every little section of my program, I used alot of different resources to get what I needed to make it work. You dont have to share the code with anyone, but your program looks really neat and clean, Oh and by the way I see that you used Paint Shop Pro for graphics (great program) I use it for all my needs too. So what are you waiting for? Give it up! heh heh.

    I'd like to share it with ppl, but I'd need to clean up the code alot. The graphics are all done in PSP, as it's easier than Photoshop. I find photoshop to be too much for my needs. As far as being clean, it's exactly the way i like it. A friend of mine has an Alpine in dash DVD and I'm trying to model my software after it. His unit is very very easy to use, and that's what I'm going for here.

    I'll think about releasing it once I get all the features going.

    If I get enough interest, I'll release it to the public. It won't be ready likely for another month or two, but I'll keep this post updated.

    VB6, which is a blessing and a curse all at the same time. It uses Windows Media for everything other than the XM. It runs the Whitecap plugin for the vis. After i finish up the XM abd the MP3, i'm workin on the video player, and then DVD. CD will likely be the last thing, as I don't plan on using CD's very often
