Thanks! I'm excited to get this out there and see what people think about using a skin without a main menu. To address the past few questions:
Transparency of base image. I can include that as an option. The menus will be tricky due to how it sets the down state of the image.
Browsing albums/artist: Right now I've just skinned a basic audio browser. I plan on skinning RRmedia at some point though.
Another update. :) I got the menu to work with >6 items without reloading the screen or skin once the More>> button is set. Once the button down status is worked out and a little bit of polish the beta will be released.
Video showing this is attached to 1st post. It was recorded with MS Expression Encoder 4 so hopefully people can open it.
I'm keeping an eye on this thread , this is turning out to be a very nice skin
waiting for the release as well....
Bumperoo. I added a video to the first post that shows more of the skin working. The menu is almost complete (the only thing that is holding back the beta). I need to fix a lag issue with the More/less commands since this has started to slow down once I added the stuff to track the indicators that act as menu buttons on the left. In the video it looks like there is lag on some buttons but its not. I just hovered the mouse there. The only lag I've seen is with the pressing of more/less to change menu states.

BETA Testers Needed
Functionality of the skin is almost complete (see list in first post) so I would like to open this up to a few beta testers. I would like to get those who have radio and or satellite radio. You will need RRextended and if you want to use the visualization in the video I will include it as well.
I would like to keep the beta group small at this point until I get feedback and then can release a public beta (with day skin). The initial beta will be sent out by the end of the week.
PM or reply here if you are interested.
I'd like to give it a shot. I am about to a RR update on my truckPC (hit the 3 month nag screen) and I would like to include this skin with the update. I can share shock v7 beta with you to do a reciprocal beta test if you are interested.
I'm willing to try Shock 7 once I get nGen to you. I'm doing a sweep of the skin files now and I should be able to send you a download link by Saturday.
