1.Yeah this is easy to change, i think the problem is i removed the selection bar so now the selected text is directly on the background. I havnt done much daytime testing so it prob is hard to read it during the day. I have nice dark tint in my car so I use this version fulltime. Ill prob add the selection bar back and tweak the text color.
2. I wouldnt edit any of the screens then use the vis opt to switch to another screen your changes will be in the wrong file. What happens when you click the different options is a script i wrote that does a file copy from the LSTOOLS folder and into the skins folder, then reloads RR. I tested this on a two machines and it worked fine.
None of them contain menu changes though,
Small Vis will simply change the vis size to be small.
BIG VIS opt1 (default) is the default with big vis
BIG VIS opt2 is the same as BIG VIS opt1 except it also has a slightly different image screen. Very slightly.
BIG VIS w LOGO is the big vis but instead of album art it has a flash logo clock
So when you edited menu.skin it could of been either of these, since the file get overwritten when you pick the options.
To test i would go into the LSTOOLS/ALT folder and manualy copy/paste the .skin file that you want into the skins folder and see if the changes work.
And or reinstall the patch.
3. That stuff was removed. I didnt feel it was needed to have the album art on all 3 pages etc. I can add those things back in and make it an option if people want that.
4.This is odd to me because i didnt do anything to fix it on the main screen. All three of these screens, (main, xm and gps) all have the exact same code for the music navigation. Did you change RR version inbetween the updates by any chance? Ill have to drop guino a line and see how its supposed to work there may be a bug in RR related to this. I dont have any radio hardware so its difficult for me to test it or even know if its working correctly.
5.Thats really odd. I think it may even be related to #4
are you using the quick menu to load gps after you load xm?
