    BMW OpenBM Skin for E39 - Step 2.5/3 [Pre-Release]


    I'm using in my BMW E39 the OpenBM CarPC-System.

    At this time i'm using RideRunner with iGoBMW skin from the Board. But i want a own skin, without any functions(like Vol+/-) or add other new functions.
    So i try in next time to create one screen after each other.
    My skin is inspired by iGoBMW Skin. The graphics are designed with corel draw.

    The resolution of the skin is 1066x600, because i can see in the graphicprogramm the right aspect.
    The Plugin IBUSCommunicatoRR will be integrated.

    The Basic Screens are Done :-)

    - MAIN
    - Exit
    - Video
    - Music
    - Visual
    - Browser
    - Mixer
    - EQ Presets
    - OSK
    - I-Bus-Information Screen (in progress)
    - some Setting and App Screens

    Included Plugins:
    - IBuscommunicatoRR
    - MediaArt

    The Skin is coded in 1066x600, and use for 1366x768.
    I don't know, when i will finish the skin. So i decided to release a current state.
    Included plugins need to register. check the plugin paths.
    The Skin is prepared for OpenBM Monitor.
    For Navigation i use Garmin and the OSK from this thread: Garmin PC and the never ending OSK
    I will switch the complete skin to flat top and bottom bar. The curvy stripe looks nice, but bad to control.

    The OS what i use is Windows XP. There are two scripts included to boot directly to RR or normal to Desktop.
    I renamed the scripts from cmd to offcmd. So you can not run them and damage your system. Be very CAREFUL if you want use this cmd scripts.
    The scripts change the registry and copy a boot.ini(for bootlogo, bootlogo bmp is placed in script path too)

    here you can see the current result (gif Slideshow):

    Now, most Screens should have flat top and bottom bars.
