    With work, you could make a symetrical skin, and then put into exectbl.ini a series of setlabel and setbutton entries to achieve what you want that is initiated by another button, or a config statement in rr.ini or skin.ini.

    I appreciate what you are looking for, I just don't know of an easy way to get to where you want to.

    RR takes a while on my epia to load a screen for the first time, so I developeed a series of exectbl.ini statements to change the button function and labels like described above. These worked far quicker, but I then ran into problems, as some skin functions only work on certain skin names, so I couldn't do this consistently. The outcome for me was to suffer the screen load time for the first time, and learn patience !

    M1000, 512MB, 512MB CF, 6GB Disk (4200rpm),
    DVD/RW, Dynamix 8" screen, M2-ATX, Custom case,Too many hours building and rebuilding and rebuild.......

    Or creating a seperate skin all together with every screen changed. This basically means doubling the size of the skin/doubling the files.

    this may be true for skins with the text on the back ground image..
    but for skins with text boxes for the button text, which i think is a better way to do it, so people could customize the skin much easier..
    then it would work

    The only way to really do this, with an existing skin, is VERY complicated! Most of the skins have the icons, labels and such on the images. This would make for a reversed image for ALL of those skins.

    For skins that do not have icons, text labels and such on the on/off/down images,(Very few skins) would also be very difficult to do. You would need to flip the BG image first off. Then you would need to change EVERY image and EVERY button coordinate on EVERY skin to show up in the new location.

    As for the << > >> (Rewind play and FF buttons, they would now be >> > << if it was flipped...

    This doesn't even begin to touch on the top bar in most skins where track time, online indicators and such are located, as they would have to be left alone for the most part.

    The bottom line, is plain and simple, there is NO easy way to do this. Just make a skin from scratch, or get a good cardio workout, and reach that extra 5 inches (Sorry, 127mm) across the screen

    I personally do not think that the menu's on the left is a left/right hand drive issue, its just the way things are in 90% of the world. Most cultures read from left to right. That's why the Start button is in the bottom left of the screen. Also 99.9% of navigation on a website, the menu is on the left side of the screen. When you are in any type of explorer tree, and open a sub menu, it branches off to the right ect.

    All of this (Except for the part of it being hard to do for a skin) is of course just my 2 cents worth, and my opinion.
