    Looks great fixer! I like the fully transparent version in the first screens, but the curve menu's do need to be cleaned up a bit on the top and bottom. The overlap cannot been seen in solid but when you make the bars transparent and you can see the curve overlap it looks sloppy.

    Anyway keep up the great work! I never imagined that carwings would end up going so far, we owe some credit to dopefish too, he is the one who came up with the original idea and layout.

    Keep in mind I could have easily made carwings transparent in the beginning, I chose not to purposely in order to keep the skin small, and very QUICK! I've noticed the GDI+ skins are not quite as responsive.

    Fixer was not merging the skins, this was my doing Posted in the original Carwings thread, there are a couple renders but the one I ended up settling on was this:



    I has the "multi-layer" transparent effect going on, but it's done very cleanly.
    Also gets rid of the left side dead space. Anyway just wanted to set the record straight. If there is interest in this design perhaps I'll release the PSD to see what happens I can be the resident RR graphic artist.

    I have since cleaned them up and am trying to decide what I like. I will work on it tonight and make a decision and redo all the files correctly.

    i am not sure if it's a bug or not... when changing backgound, it shows no background.. Even modified skin.ini manually, didn't help.. any idea?


    ok, noticed it doesn't write out a full path to a bg jpg... in skin.ini...

    $backgroundpath$ ===> problem?

    Enforcer sent me the Traffic Cams version. I am setting it up transparent now. It was taken out of the released version.

    My version also has the IG overlay in it that the non transparent version with the installer is missing. We know not everyone uses IG so we left it out of the official release but this version uses it because I use IG.

    Did you get it working then or do I need ot look at it. Exectbl.ini has the bgpath specified. LMK if it does not work.

    it doesn't work... it's not writing out a full path to skin.ini file...

    By the way, i love the transparent look and i think enforcer's suggestion is a key to perfecting this... transparency of top and bottom just doesn't seem right.. Kinda depends on which bg you select, but u know what i mean..

    again, great work dude.. i love carwings design.. it's so original.
