    trust me, im trying to get it done as soon as possible. This past month ive been a little burnt out with skinning and also sick and various other issues, but some how still managed to get quiet a lot done

    Most, i would say, 90% of all the screens have a day version now. Some need to be updated again cuz of changes i made in the night version (additions to audio player). Some of the .skin files need small tweaks here and there.

    Note also, there are 160+ images and 120+ .skin files X2 including the day version, so there is a lot of stuff to go through and check. Pretty much every .skin file has been edited, and a lot of them by hand due to the Skineditor not supporting some of the most recent RR features. Not to mention the slew of scripts etc, etc.

    Also, this next update will most likely be the last update for a while, i need to take a break, so im trying to pack as much into this one and address any issues etc.

    Just kidding. But I really can't wait until it's out.

    I think that's a really cool feature that all the colors are in one location. That's going to make everything really easy to customize.
    I haven't looked into changing the fonts and haven't really found that need to yet so I haven't done any research on it so this might be a dumb suggestion but would you be able to place all the font sizes in one location?

    only the colors for the fonts are located in one txt file.
    the font and font size would have to be edited by hand in each .skin file.
    I likely wont be moving those items to a single file, its very tedious. I could possibly easily move the font name, but the size would be an issue since its just a two digit number doing a search and replace would likely turn up a mixed bad of results. Plus, changing the size of the fonts is hightly not recommended, most of the labels only accommodate the size of the font that is displayed now. So changing the font size would require you to also change the size of the labels, which would mean editing every.skin file. Vicious cycle

    any ?


    also, if you dont have any issues with it, would you include the .psd for the basic screen for day and night? I know this is your last release for a bit with this skin, so I was just thinking if i or someone else was going to add something new that comes up it would make it easier, then hacking a jpeg.

    every week i think to myslelf that its going to be ready by the weekend, that thought has been going on for like a month now, lol.
    So i honestly cant say but everyday im getting closer, with pitstops on the way.

    I still have 2 sections that need to be converted to a day version, the mixer and Phoco and a laundry list of tweaks that need to be done to the day version.

    Shortly after im done, ill clean up the psd files and send them to whoever request them (there wont be a link for general download, if you want them you'll have to ask for them). In most cases you wont even need them, if you take a look at the .jpgs in the skin folder usually you'll find something in the format you are looking for even if it doesn't seem that way when using the skin. For example on the main menu, you can remove the two big arrows without editing the jpegs in anyway because of the EMPTY states.

    I manually edited the menu.skin file to change some font colors and the album art image and by accident today I hit the Vis button where it asks me to change the type of vis and I hit cancel. But when it came back to the screen, it changed my menu.skin file back to what it was by default. Is this a bug in the cancel command of that screen?

    the cancel button may be a little misleading, it does not cancel any operation you may have done on that screen, but simply takes you back to the main menu instead of the previous options screen. I should prob rename it to something else. The only time cancel will undo anything you've done is if there is also an apply button.

    In the update the options screens have been extensively worked over, there like 5 screens now with options. Almost all options are realtime.

    So in the future if you want to edit the main menu, the first thing to do is figure out which main menu you are currently using (think ill add something to help that). The menu.skin file that is in the root of the skin is not the file you want to edit.
    Inside the ALT folder in LSTOOLS (this has changed in the update) there are the menu.skin files that get copied over if you choose any of the vis options.
    So any changes you make to the menu.skin in the root will always get overwritten if you dont make those same changes to the other menu.skin files.

    Is there any chance we're ever going to see sub-sub-sub-sub-forums? It's getting beyond inconvenient to sift through almost 1200 replies in one thread on every topic imaginable for this great skin. There must be some point where specific skins have achieved enough prominence that they should be broken out. As we all know, the "search thread" function isn't particularly great. Having separate threads under one topic would be a big help.

    as im not a moderator, this is prob the least likely place to post such a thread.
    I do agree with what your saying, but its very, very, unlikely such a thing will ever happen.
    Everyone will want there skin to have its own sub forum, something that just would take too much work to constantly do, even if it were regulated to the most popular skins, its still a lot of work.
    Would would be better IMO is if the MOD of a specific section, say RoadRunner had full control over what happens under this section and appointed additional MODS for subsections that also had full control i think something like this could work.

    Currently there is only 1 person who has the ability to add subforums on this whole site and it takes days, sometimes weeks and user polls etc to get it done.

    So the best method really is just to search this thread. I know it sucks. But there really isnt any other method that would be easier. If i break the thread up, then there is 2 threads now that will both grow and just more places for you to search for stuff on.

    If your having any problems, dont hesitate to just post a question, i usually get right back to any one having problems even if the problem has been discussed multiple times in the past.
