    First of all. Thank you!

    I will take a look in the car if the CD/line/mic sliders work in there. I really haven't tested them actually. I'm still running RR 13/10/08 on Vista on my desktop so not working volume and mixer is quite normal since Vista uses totaly different protocols than XP. I have no volume control in RR on my desktop either. I'll check it in the car and report back.

    So you mean a transparent one? With black text on it? Maybe something I will do in the future since I'm thinking about doing a transparent version with some premade backgrounds so you can change the colour of it. Obviously you will also be able to use every other background. Also I want to integrate changing labelcolours in it so you can choose any colour you want. But I'm still looking and figuring out how these all work. So please be patient...

    Is there a reason in particular why you prefer "TRACKNAME" above "TAGTITLE"? I guess it would be possible. I see no real difference so I guess I can change it in the next release.

    Hi Bimmerstyle.

    Thanks for sharing this very nice skin, will give it a try in the car during the weekend. You mention a "lite" and "pro" version, I'm actually looking for an even "liter" version only including ; music, video,photo and POI.
    About the POI, I can find that anywere, I have the BMW origional navigation installed (MKV) and many other front ends uses the coordinates from that one over the I-bus for POI (speed cameras)
    (I ve been running CarX for some years but been looking for something better)

    In the day skin audio browser, the selected folder has a big white line; the night skin only highlights the text - much nicer. IMO

    That was done for visibilty reasons. I tried the dayskin without the selected line and it really was hard to see then wich song was selected in the car. Personaly I also think that only highlighting the text would look nicer. I will take a second look on that one. Maybe I'll try something with another colour for the selected text or something like that.

    If I understand correctly, you're running your OEM navigation and want to control the skin with your OEM buttons.

    I think at the moment iBusRR is only supporting steering wheel buttons. I'm not sure. You may want looking into the older iBusComm. I think in there all the buttons are supported (if you know the package codes). There is a lot of setting up that has to be done however. It will most definately not be "plug & play".

    Maybe look for the iBusRR and iBusComm threads and ask it over there. My knowledge of iBusRR doesn't go much further than the steering wheel buttons. If you find all the codes and get your iBussRR (iBusComm) ini files set up correctly the skin should work with it as any other skin.

    Keep in mind that the skin hasn't got an "on" state yet. This is when you hover with the mouse over it the buttons will highlight. You'll probably need this if you want to scroll through the menu's with your OEM knob. I'm working on this however and it should be ready in one of the next releases.

    Hi.
    Yes thats right im running CarX today that is fully controlled over the OEM buttons. After studying the .ini file for Ibusrr a bit more I realised that this will never work as I wanted it to do :-(
    Just finished my new car PC and was looking for something fresher and less "buggier" then CarX and your skin is just so nice....I guess I have to make a new skin to CarX instead then.

Let me know if it helps.

    Are there other people with lower specs than mine who are having these problems? Please let me know. (not that I can think of a quick fix except for the iList...)
    Sorry I didn't get back sooner... I wanted to give it a couple more days in case I was being too hasty. Well, it seems that even with iList disabled and that line commented out in the skin files, it still has a tad bit of lag. No big deal though. I've gotten used to it

    The other skins I use don't have iLists (that I know of). Heck I don't even know what iLists are for.

    Great work on the skin.

    Any plans for a playlist loader/editor? I see you can save a playlist from the audio browser, but then how do you load one?
