iDrive F01 -Alpha Release- !!Question to skinners - Post 40!!
iDrive F01 is finaly finished! :bounce:
It's a basic skin based on the new BMW iDrive system. I tried to give it an OEM look and feel. Not too many buttons and features, just the basics, this way keeping the layout as OEM as possible.
Keep in mind that it's only the second skin that i've made and the first one I suit capable of being released. So please be gentle!
-Radio (not yet tested, lost my HQCT module... :doh: )
-File Copier (by JohnWBP)
-File Updater (RRUpd8 by Enforcer)
-Mixer & Equalizer screens
-A RRConfig screen
-A help screen with some usefull info
What's not included:
All the fancy stuff. Changing backgrounds, lables, buttons, Media database,... I simply haven't got the knowledge yet to put them all in and they would clutter the skin too much.
Also at the moment no plugins that depend on the internet are included. I don't have an internet-connection in my car so I don't need them. It's possible however that I will include some more screens and plugins later on.
Also phone is not supported. I tried endlessly the various plugins available but can't get any of them to work as they should. At the moment I'm completely fed up with phone related stuff. I kept the button in the skin however and there are empty Phone.skin and .jpg files so people who want can create there own phone screen based on those.
RRUpd8 plugin is not included. Please get it here.
The File Copier is allready set up for my personal needs. I don't have the knowledge to make everything possible to setup from in the skin but I made the skin files easy to change and there is some help info in each of them. This way you can set different paths and locations pretty easy.
The GPS skin is designed for PC Navigator 7. With other navigation software the screens will look weird. In the skin folders is a folder named GPS Images. There are two subfolders in it. One contains the PC Navigator screens the other the screens for other software. You can simply copy the ones you want in the skin folder.
The radio screen is not yet tested with an actual radio module. Everything should be working ok but if there are problems please report them.
The skin needs the "Arial Narrow" font. It's included in the !FONTS-folder for those who don't have it allready.
Also read the Help & Information screens in the skin. There is a little more usefull info in them.
Important: The auto Day/Night switch feature availlable in RR won't work with this skin. It will leave active overlays running when switching when they should be closed!
This skin wouldn't be made if it wasn't for some help of some people:
Enforcer: For the RRUpd8 plugin and answering my often stupid questions on these forums since day one!
JohnWPB: For the File Copier and the inspiration I got by looking at the DFX skin files and trying to make sence of them.
EL_Camino: For the overlay plugin
BlueZX3: For creating the new RR-Config program and skinner tool. Setting up and skinning RR was never this easy!
And of course.... Guino! For creating and keep on supporting the excellent piece of software that is RoadRunner!
The most recent screens I've made aren't exctensively tested so please report any problems. That's why it's an alpha release. ;)
