I think it would really be great if as I save/backup a user profile the picture associated with that profile gets updated to match the background of that user. ............. I figure its just a matter of copying the background image to the BackupUser subdirectory as UserX.png.
    That feature is already in there Just put the images you want to use and name them user1.png, user2.png ect

    Here is the path to the images:
    "[path to the skin]Scripts\BackupUser\User1.png"

    so just put all of your user*.png's in the BackupUser folder and they will display.

    And as for the skin release... it is coming... I cant give a date, as there is just so much going on there. Just got back from Canada a week ago, working on my car project, and have taken a part time job till this damn economy improves.

    As mentioned, Garmin will be supported, and I also mentioned that mobile phone.net will not. Wellll..... I got around to skinning it, and it will be in the next release. Is anyone out there that has it working well and can test it? I have no way to test it here, so I can't make sure it even is working correctly I copied all of the commands that are used by the plugin, so it SHOULD work correctly, just need to verify it before I include it with the skin.

    If you want to test it, just post a reply. No PM's please, as I get enough of them already heheh.

    Here is a screen Cap of it (Again, no way to test, so all info in the skin is blank)

    I was thinking something more like you adding a few lines in your "Backupuser.exe" script that would copy the current background image to the "UserX" directory, and rename it to "UserX.PNG", and then copy it the "Backupuser" directory - Automajically!

    You are gonna have to clarify a little bit... copy the "background image"... as in the "wallpaper"? It does that already for each user.

    As for the png's there are 6 total users, thus named user1.png, user2.png and so forth......

    So I am just not quite understanding what you mean....

    O.K. how about in quasiRRSpeak:

    Add this to "Backupuser.exe":

    copy $background$ to $skinpath$Scripts\BackupUser\$DFXUser$.png||Reload RR||load;switch_users.skin


    Right now when I configure DFX4 for all my preferences and go into the user menu, I change the user name and then backup the user. It does not change the image displayed on the user screen. In order for me to change the image for that user I have to exit RR, MANUALLY copy the background image .jp to the user directory, MANUALLY rename it to (Damn I always get here and forget which user I just changed) userX.png, then I have to MANUALLY copy the userx.png to the parent directory "Backupuser", then I can rerun RR and the user screen will show the background as the picture for userX.

    All this manual input could be alleviated with one or two extra lines in the "Backupuser.exe". Yes, no, maybe.....Please! Please! Please!

    Ok, that is where you have been confusing the heck out of me hahah! when you mention "Copy $background$", $background$ is the name of the wallpaper that is used throughout the skin. EA: Blue Smoke, Sunset, ect ect...

    So you actually, instead of a "user picture" want to see the background wallpaper in each of the squares instead?

    EXACTLY! Or you could make it user selectable (others might want to do something different), but yeah that would work for me. And your other fans can still change it manually after running BACKUPUSER.EXE.

    Interesting.... I made it so a head shot of the user could be used, not so the wallpaper image shows. Much like a headshot of a person on your cellphone when it rings.

    What I have done, is if I set a few users for myself, I name them accordingly: "Burlwood", "Red Night", "Gray Daytime" ect. Each of those then have my "head shot" for them, and the name describes the theme. (My nephew loves tapping his picture to switch to all his favorite colors, radio stations and virtual disks )

    I would have to make it one or the other, and for now I think the selectable image would win. What does everyone else think?

    On a final note, having 6 800x600 wallpapers displayed in the same screen could cause issues with systems with low specs ect.

    John, I use it exactly the way gizmo describes. It is just easier for me to see the background & text color used so I don't have to guess.
