Only 8 hrs...you have got to be kidding me... that is WAY too long to do such a simple change...
I guess that at least there are only 30 verse some 50+ ones like DFX...
DFX has 16 buttons on the main menu screen. There are 4 on each side which are the apps, music, gps, etc, and it has 8 on the bottom, which are the menu, play, pause, volume, and mute.
Also there are several pages of skins, so confirm you are on the main menu page please.
Have you dowloaded the updated skin files from post #2 and have you run the fix flash from the start menu DFX folder? This may be outdated though, but just trying to cover all the bases.
Okay for the DashCommand skin, I have been playing with getting it to look more integrated into the DFX skin.
To me, all that was needed was a way for the background to show through rather than be all black.
I found out that I can add a picture object instead of just a solid color using the DashXL editor.
So I cropped my DFX background image to match the size of the DFX window that is opening for DashCommand, and now I have a seemless background image between the DFX skin and the DC window.
I will probably end up making the blue areas underneath the text in the bottom, black, but this was the best current screen to show the background integration.
Nice! Fortunately for me the skin you originally setup was EXACTLY my DFX theme
