    @Kardain: I really wouldn't know what's causing the lag. I never had any issues with it so I haven't got a clue on how to solve this. Sorry.

    The iList is mainly eye-candy. It makes the list scroll smoother.

    @WarningSLO: Thanks! It's possible in the future I'll include BlueZX3's mediabase (in the "pro" version). So then it'll have all the bells and wissels.

    For now you can simply add songs to the playlist and then save the entire thing. They're saved to the location set in RRConfig. I have this location placed in my audiofolder so there is a subfolder in it called playlists. From there I can load the playlists that I have saved.

    Hope you don't mind bimmerstyle, but I created an iguidance screen and coverjuke screen to go along with your skin. My photoshop skills are pretty basic, but I think they work well enough.

    @WarningSLO: No problem at all. Feel free to make any more screens you like. It's looking good. Dit you also use an overlay for the iGuidance buttons?

    @Kardain: It's probably from the overlay plugin. You're trying to open a screen with an overlay when another one is still active. Can you tell me excactly from wich screen you try to change to the night skin?

    Are there still any AutoIt icons active in your running apps section in the taskbar? If so, close them and try again.

    In normal use this should never happen. I've tested this quite extensively. Maybe you closed RR in a bad way before and that's why it's still running?

    It happens when it auto-switches from day to night... I never manually change it... 99% of the time, I have the Nav screen open, on skin switch, for whatever reason it goes back to the main index.

    No other AutoIT apps were open (or at least knowingly) as I just cold-booted about 20 min prior to the skin change (I do a full shutdown on mine instead of hibernate). This has occurred daily since I installed this skin, the only changes I made were to the colors of the JPG files

    The iGuidance skin would look better if you used the iDrive curve rather than the Carwings one. seeing as it's an iDrive skin

    @Kardain:

    That can be a problem indeed. I've never tested the skin with auto Day/Night switch. It's quite normal this won't work with this skin since my Day/Night buttons perform other actions than simply changing Day/Night.

    They lead to the appropriate screen you were in before and, more important for you, they close any open overlays still present before opening new ones. Auto Day/Night will simply not work with this skin at this time and it's very likely it will never work with it. There's simply no way in letting the auto Day/Night switch handling all the other commands. They vary to much in the different screens. Changing manually seems to be the best sollution. I'm sorry for this.

    If you REALLY want to use the auto Day/Night feature you can delete the "ElcosMenu.exe" file in both skin folders. Then it should be working OK. This means however you won't have the overlapping sidebars in the GPS screens and the dimming Albumart in the night skin anymore. Also the go to screen function will not work with auto swich. You will always end up in the main menu. A sacrifice I'm not willing to take to make the auto Day/Night work but maybe one you are willing to take.

    EDIT: just noticed in your post:

    No other AutoIT apps were open (or at least knowingly) as I just cold-booted about 20 min prior to the skin change
    Since you were in the Navigation screen an AutoIT would have been open since this screen uses an overlay. Overlay = AutoIT.

    I will put a remark in the opening post saying this skin is not suitable for auto Day/Night switching.

    @Enforcer: You're right on that one...

    @Treetop777: He may. I don't mind.

    @jessekilner: Thanks!

    A question to the more advanced skinners amongst us:

    I've started on changing the "on" images to be highlighted on mouseover. More important for myself and others with a BMW and iBusRR running, I'm changing the iBusRR.ini file so that in the menu's (exit, main and utilities) you can scroll throught them iDrive-wise and select the highlighted feature.

    Now my question: Would there be a way to keep the "CTRLLEFT" "CTRLRIGHT" commands within the menu buttons. So that when in the picture below "CTRLRIGHT" will go down from "File Copier" --> "File Updater" -->"..... " --> "Help & Information" and then back up again to "File Copier" instead of going to the "Exit" button (the next one in line in the skin file)?

    If this won't work. Would there be at least be a way of making the highlighted button always the top one in the list (in this picture "File Copier") instead of the last one Highlighted?

    This would make navigation with the steering wheel buttons a lot easier!
