    labels dont hold relative position after skin stretch

    when u resize a skin, the labels dont maintain there relative position.
    Look at the screenshots and pay attention to the play arrows, the point on the arrow should line up in the middle of the button where the color changes.

    I can see your concern.. I'm a bit confused though in regards to the PLAY arrow.. is that a label ??

    Anyway, at first, I made the code in RR automatically resize the fonts of the skin relatively to the scaling used on the original size of the skin... the problem is that the results were not satisfactory in a few resize modes (i.e. X resize and no Y resize).. so I scratched off the idea of resizing fonts from the beginning.. which means that RR will not resize any Fonts, and that will make it so it seems the fonts are "shifting" simply because the top left position will be scaled as it should, but the font will stay in the original size -- and will be "bigger" (relatively to the image itself), or smaller like in the case you have showed above (most likely because your original skin is 800x480 and you streched it to 800x600 -- instead of your original being 800x600 and reducing it to 800x480).

    Normally, I'd suggest chosing font position/sizes to where they'll work on either screen resolution, but the best thing would be to have a set of .skin files fot 800x600 and another set for 800x480.. The images can still be the same.

    yeah the arrow above the play is a label, using the wingding font. I think im just going to get them in position to where they are correct under 800x600, thats should be good enough, or maybe make 2 sets like u suggest since i allready have it for 800x480. Is there any kind of way to resize a skin (not the images), so all the .skin files are set for X res and saved.

    either way, its not a real huge issue, i never noticed it till i did this skin and noticed the arrows not lineing up where they should.

    since you're scaling up, it may be just as easy as increasing the font size of your labels (search/replace should do it).. I can recall someone making a little tool to resize the data in the .skin files.. but don't remember it being available for download.
