I find neon green is also contrasting on a black/white background.
The info in the bottom bar is the same on EVERY screen, so having it different on the main screen isn't ideal. The redundant info is unnecessary, and I'll change it soon to less important info like what I have in mAv1c. I like this slider (at least over any of the others I've used) so it will probably make it into v3.
If I have a changeable slider, it will probably correspond with the presets in the text color screen (green text = green slider, white text = black slider) but not with the custom colors (16+ million slider images would be ridiculous.) But you can choose the color closest to your custom color, or one at random.
It will be interesting to see what you come up with..
I agree with having a progressive slider under the time is wierd, so for the volume, I think I'm going to just do a time switched label.
I've been testing it with this method:
The label that shows time changes to the volume percentage when you press either button, and then when the next timer interval rolls around (currently every 5 seconds) it changes back to the time automatically.
I like this method, because the volume percentage is really only needed when you change it.
For the songpos, I'll be making 7 different sliders, when you press any of the 8 text color presets, the corresponding slider image will show. If you choose to use a custom color, the last preset color you select will be displayed.
On a side note, if you choose black text, it will automatically change the background to RGBFFFFFF (white)
And again, if you don't have powermon, you won't even see the slider or the label.
V3 coming VERY SOON!
I'm running some more tests, and writing the user guide right now.
Expecting to release it within the next few days.
800x600 version to follow about a week later.
Things fixed in the 600 version:
- Album art displayed at correct ratio
- Font in the right location
- Skins and Backgrounds displayed at correct ratio
- GPS Overlay will display correctly
- uh... maybe some other things.
In both versions, I just thought of a cool way to do the background chooser screen, so there may be a screen shot later of how that works, if I get it working.
I might also have a trick for the song pos slider colors, but I'll probably just keep it as 8 different color choices.
A little more work for the 480 version to go!
Here's what I'm working on for the backgrounds. Basically, it's an overlay with the background full screen. Why not see exactly what the background will look like before you actually save it?
Here's a youtube preview (low quality) of what it looks like:
It's a little slower since it's using elcamino's overlay, but it works.
