    Lloydy.. I enjoy the OEM feel of this skin. It is definately my favorite. I had been using the old version for quite some time making my own tweaks here and there. I just installed your update and was glad to see some major changes!

    With your new version there were a few things I noticed right away (bugs).

    1. This was present with the old version. The OSK seems to skip digits here and there. This happens just about anywhere you use the OSK EXCEPT the "Earth/Globe" button you press when entering a browser address. I don't know if i get lucky, but the browser address always goes in correctly.

    2. In this new version on the music playlist, when I select a song, it plays the song right before it. When it goes on to the next song, it highlights one song, but is actually playing the song right above it. I'm not sure if this is a RR bug or a skin bug as my knowledge of the source is extremely limited (most of the tweaks I've been doing are visual not functional). I also simultaneously updated RR along with your skin, so I wouldn't be able to deduce which is causing the problem. It's not that serious since I shuffle play anyway.

    3. I figured out how to change the relevant .skin files for the menu2 to change all the links to USA links (the UK ones don't help me.. heh), everything was fine, but with the chat button, it opens up the old messenger which for some reason doesn't work anymore... MSN keeps telling me I have to upgrade to the new version. The new version no longer embeds into the window, and it eventually freezes up RR. Not too much worry about this one though, as I'll probably change the button to do something else. I'm just bringing it up since others might want to be able to use it with the new MSN Messenger.

    4. E-mail button... have been trying to do 1 of 2 things but settled on a 3rd. First, I was trying to have the Microsoft Outlook window embed into the .skin file (I was using SOLITAIRE.skin since it worked with embedding a few other apps that I wanted to launch from the main menus, not from the Launch menu). It didn't embed the Microsoft Outlook window, but it opened it above the SOLITAIRE.skin screen (this is the 3rd option that I ended up settling with), so I figured I'd try a second thing if the embedding didn't work. Secondly I tried to just open Microsoft Outlook from the menu2.skin screen and have it just open over that screen. I wanted to be able to close Outlook, and the menu2 screen would be there. This didn't work. I would prefer a way to embed the window, but if the Microsoft Outlook window doesn't allow for it, then maybe I'd have to use Outlook Express, or Mozilla Thunderbird.

    I'll do this e-mail experimentation on my own and post my findings as well as what to change in the .skin files for the less experienced RR users who enjoy your skin like I do.

    Thanks again for this great skin! I understand you have a lot on your plate, so any fixes that I can make (for the e-mail button at least) I will post about for others. Can't wait for the completed release!

    my PowerDVD 6 Deluxe version worked with this skin with the older RR release.. but when I updated both it didn't work anymore. I reverted back to test a few things and it is not the skin. It seems like it's the actual RR software.

    Use PowerDVD 5, and make sure you have the correct path selected in your RR config. ALso make sure you type out the name of the program as it appears on the window. I'm not sure if that does anything, but I corrected my spelling on the title once and then all of a sudden it worked.. fluke maybe, but why take chances?

    ok now it doesn't work (the PowerDVD)

    I tried different skins and they each had the same issue... even with the OSK problem. That means Simplistique is NOT the culprit!

    I can't get any version to work, the closest I came was powerdvd loaded but wasn't embedded in the skin. what files needs editing and what windows name should be used in the rr.ini.

    is it possible to use the internal dvd

    Thr menu buttons might not be necessary as it might change the cleanliness and simplistic aesthetic behind Simplistique I was sad enough that the crescent moon "night mode" toggle button had to go, but I assume because you had ran out of room to keep the same size buttons for an ease of touch.

    @aducrejr... I just use my finger on the touch screen.. drag forward to change the song forward.. drag backward to go back, drag downward to play/pause. I think upward should stop the song but it doesn't do that so Play/Pause will have to do.

    I never touched any of those files. I just set everything up in the config panel. My problem now is with launching PowerDVD. I tried version 4, 5, and 6 Deluxe. 6 Deluxe opened at first perfectly, but the play button was the only button that DIDN'T work, so I relied on powerDVD's own control panel to hit play (all the other buttons worked fine afterward). Then after a while the control panel for PowerDVD didn't show so i couldn't play unles i right-clicked (which is asinine since i don't rely on a mouse/keyboard while driving).

    I uninstalled powerDVD 6, then reinstalled it and now it doesn't work! LOL... but it has something to do with RR not this skin since all the other skins I have do the same thing. If it's not RR then it's some setting somewhere that i'm overlooking somehow.

    I'll post a thread in the bugs section and you can add your input in there as well.

    maybe the extra buttons aren't necessary. personally I would like the volume slider to go and be replaced with the fwd/rev, because I use my HU to control volume

    BTW, Lloydy, I deduced that issues 1 & 2 from post #171 have to be RR's doing and not Simplistique's
