    Possibly the best plugin ever scripted for RR.

    I know this is a bumping an old thread, but I'm really hoping to see this picked back up. I'm willing to help as much as I can, with the limited coding knowledge I have at least.

    I'd love to see these features implemented or fixed:

    - Font size
    - Font alignment (probably just that the plugin isn't recognizing the info after the comma)
    - Indicators (shuffle/repeat, mute, etc.)
    - Sliders
    - Variables and INC support. (I use different font colors, and it would be nice if the skin's color would work in the overlay.)

    This has been the major reason that I haven't used the overlay plugin for the menus in my skin, I have a button that switches the labels to symbols and back, which uses variables. If the menus were overlays, we would still be able to use the underlying buttons without having to cancel out of the menu...

    so, please pick this back up so we can all use this great plugin.

    this will update the labels every second.
    in my skin i use
    Code:
    "ONSONGSTART","SENDMSG;ElcosMenu;update"
    to update the labels "TAGARTIST" "TAGTITLE"

    for some reason labels size are a bit tricky. and yes they line up to the left only. for now..

    It stop to update the label after several minutes on my GPS skin..>"<

    Ok, as reported by blk02si in this post:

    Is there a fix for this? I've confirmed it on every system I've run it on.

    this plugin works with png images, just create your .skin file with the editor, make your buttons and labels, and after you launch your application, run this script with the name of your .skin file., it would be better if you post what you have tried.

    Unhappy

    Ok here is what I tried and failed ..
    In zip file u will find 2 png images and my skin file.

    The skin file content is:
    PHP Code:
    RoadRunner Skin
    RRScreen RoadCameraHD
    RoadCameraHD_off
    .png,RoadCameraHD_off.png,RoadCameraHD_on.png,RoadCameraHD_on.png
     
    B_Mirror
    ,672,139,121,83,,
     
    B_Channel_Minus,735,314,58,79,,
     
    B_Channel_Plus,671,313,58,78,,
     
    B_Snapshot,671,223,122,79,,
     
    B_Record,672,46,122,80,,
    A,0,0,800,600,

    END 

    THe ExecTBL.ini has following lines:
    Code:
    "CAMERA" ="LOAD;RoadCameraHD.skin"
    And skin button declaration reads "CAMERA"


    So far I wasnt even able to brign up the skin.

    I tried this line to load skin:

    "CAMERA","LOAD;RoadCameraHD.skin;;$skinpath$\..\.. \RoadCameraHD\RoadCameraHD.exe;RoadCameraHD.exe"

    This one loaded my app but did not load the skin and RR crashed,... well not crashed but became unaxesible
