    One more thing I am not sure if this is me being stupid but it seems like the DFX4 package does not have the backgrounds folder and related images.. so if you do a fresh install of DFX4 it breaks until you create a backgrounds folder..
    As mentioned The skin now uses a "BACKGROUNDS" folder in the the RR Root folder. It does include all of the backgrounds that DFX 3 had, and a few new ones as well.

    NOTE: The installer also adds a link to the start menu to the Button editor.

    I am working on the bugs that have been reported, and should have a patch out in the next week or so. It will be the same as the installer, however will only contain the updated files and fixes. No more 50 Meg downloads to update to the latest version

    John it's strange maybe it is only my setup but when I click the YouTube button nothing happens, but when I use the DFXButton editor and change the command to "LOAD;youtube.skin;YTViewer;;YTViewer" it loads the skin. Like I said it probably something on myside but thats my workaround for now.

    Just a quick bug I found by accident. When changing logos only the logos with no spaces in the name work. I tried to change to GMC truck logo and it would display in the list and the thumbnail would display but would not display in the skin. The Rockford logo did not work either until I took the spaces out.

    Thanks kbreeden. I went searching for that thread last night as well after Blue 'jogged' my memory. Completely forgot the thread for avast was out there as I was using AVGFree before it starting hijacking my pc with ver8.0

    With the ability to change the menu layout, such as 2D logo, Photo, 3D logo ect.... I was wondering if a "round Option" would be something people would want....

    The only major drawback, is that it will not work, "Out of the box". The 2D and 3D logo's. clocks and such were created by different people. Thus they will not all fit perfectly into the center circle. If you drive a Mitsubishi for instance, tweaking would be needed to get the logo to fit exactly where you wanted it to. I can provide detailed instruction, but just wanted to let everyone know.....

    That looks pretty nice with the clock. My opinion is that it's a marginal improvement. It would be great as long as it's not too much work.

    Personally, I like the current style better than the circle.

    I remmember many months ago when BlueZX3 asked if anybody was interested in a "music database" - the general consensus was NO!

    Do or don't do whatever you want with your skin JWPB - regardless!

    If you like it, press-on - Like BlueZX3 did!
