    On the other hand.... They have a shopping cart set up, and I can charge a very small fee, and get something back for the literally COUNTLESS hours of work on this skin over the past 3 years now.

    I do NOT want to come across as greedy, or anything like that, but at the same time, it would be nice to be compensated in a small way for the work and time that has went into this skin. It has went from a hobby, into enough hours spent on it during the week, that it is equal to a full time job! I was thinking something like $4.99 would be a totally fair, and low amount to ask for....

    I know times are tough, they are here as well, trust me!! I also know there are people out there that do not have credit cards or PayPal accounts, and I do NOT want to leave anyone out that wants to use the skin!!!! So if there is just no way for someone to pay the $4.99 for it, then I would make some other way to get people the skin for free. Maybe by just dropping me an email or something privately, and letting me know you have no way to pay for it, and I could give out a link to somewhere to download it for free.

    If I do this, some of the cost will go to BlueZX3 as well, as he has been so much help, and also put tons of time and effort into this skin as well.

    Before I make any decisions, I want to get some feedback on what people think of this. So post your ideas, and let me know if this seems fair or not.
    Depending on stability I'd pay 20, hell, if it is as good as it sounds like it will be I would pay 40 but if you move to a pay model you have to expect to provide a higher level of support. I'm just saying that if you charge someone money for software the answer can't be

    Make a playlist with all 50,000 songs in it, then hit shuffle in the top left corner of the main menu screen while that playlist is playing.
    Shuffle and repeat are hidden, by the way, above "Song" and "Artist" in the top bar of the main screen.

    Really? I swear John said that didn't put shuffle in because he doesn't like it.

    Er...ya... Just because he doesn't use it, doesn't mean he didn't put it in. If that was thwe case, there wouldn't nearly be half of the stuff in the skin.

    All the indicarios at the top in dfx5 are show ghosted when off.

    Yes you have to use something like Xport (Its in the DFX skin folder in the helper files folder). Next you have to go into the settings screen in the skin, and choose the logo and compass menu layout.

    Very true, as well as the indicators are in a include file. This means you can open that file in notepad, and remove indicators you know you will never use, move them around, or add your own. They also use .png images, so you can customize the indicators that display at the top of the screen by just switching the .png files for your own.

    Here are the indicators as they come "stock" with the skin when it's released here soon.




    The CD & DVD indicators light up when you have a CD/DVD in your drive. Clicking on them brings up the option to play whats in the drive, or eject it.

    It will also pop-up that option if you insert a DVD or CD into the drive while RR is running.

    I like that clock layout with the month and date but am I the only one who would prefer an option for a digital clock? When I glance to see what time it is while driving I really don't want to have to think too hard about it.

    edit: I see that its digital at the top above the flash area and the date is duplicated below it. Still it'd be cool to have a larger digital clock with date as well.

    that clock and month is a flash item , so you can add your own clock to that area,



    like the 1 i had in Ranger , just find the .swf clock you like drop it into the 3D logos folder in the skin, and select the file in settings within the skin , .....the only snag is , when you select any of johns flash clocks , for the main menu, the RR clock label still shows , people will think you have a complex about the time lol....
