    The old regular logos?!?

    I know this is dumb, but I tried a search and still couldn't find it... how do you switch back to the old, non-spinning flash logos?
    I have tried saving the image as a logo.jpg, logo.bmp, and logo.png and putting it in the skins folder, but none of them would show up.
    Thanks.

    You want to use the old logos, you have to do it the old fashion way:

    -Download the PSDs from febsperanza's site
    -Edit the Images to your liking, save the JPGs into your skin's folder

    I don't intend to offer simple file loading for logos because it'd be limited to a GIF of 256 colors (to support transparency).

    So the flash logos are the only option right now?
    Thanks for such a quick reply too!

    no, you always have the option to edit the JPGs and put whatever you want in them.. I just don't offer a quick method of loading logos as I do for Flash. This is not a lacking function since nobody has ever offered it. It doesn't take but 5 minutes to open the PSD copy/paste your logo and save the file.. you just have to do it if you want. You can always download another skin with your logo or the original mediacar skins with your logo.

    Is this skin of any use to anyone? Its based on the current BrushedMetal skin similar to Guinos. I can generate pretty much all the logos from Febs skins and also any colour buttons, let me know.

    Original is from Febs skins.

    Any use to anyone?

    I've been meaning to do some editing myself.. I wanted to do a few things to the main menu:

    Group TV/Video/DVD in the video button using a menu like I did to the radio, this would free two buttons on the skin... one could be for web, the other for anything extra like OBDII... also, we could reduce the size of the volume slider so it can have the highlight it is entitled to have. Either that, or it's time we start subdividing the main menu like the MMI skin did.. the above does look pretty good..

    I've taken it a stage further now and split the bottom row of buttons into two. I'll do a mock up in the next hour or so and post, let me know what you think.

    I like it. If you can put the nice Nissan logo in it then it would be perfect for me. If its not too much trouble then switching the Radio and Phone button would be cool too. I don't plan on using Radio or TV so having them down together would be good.
    One question about all the different BM skins: Why do the bottom rows of buttons always touch the bottom border of the screen? Seems like it would be a cleaner look to have them a few pixels higher and finished with a bottom border for the button itself.
    Thanks.

    Anyone like this one? Plenty of space for extra buttons either side of the exit for XM, ODB etc
