    Sorry, missed the question:

    Not sure what screen or text you are refering to. The font is Sergoe Media Center. The easiest way I have found to match a font size, is, in Photoshop, to type the same label over the top of the existing text. Then go to edit, Transform, scale, and adjust it to match the size of the text behind it.

    John.
    It does but if I select a song from the playlist manually, this is when it does not update (unless the previous song had no album art).

    Adding /DISCARDABLE, it does seem to correct the error most of the time (90%); can't understand why sometimes it doesn't do it. Nevertheless, I can live with that.

    However, now whenever I press the GPS, it hides RR and the taskbar and leaves only the iGuidance open at the spot where it would generally be displayed. I couldn't open the tasklist because didn't have a mouse/keyboard connected to it but the music was still playing. I had to reset the system. In fact, this also happened when I clicked on the EQ button. Can you reproduce this error? If not, I guess I would have to take out /DISCARDABLE as I'd rather have my GPS working on that screen then refreshing album art (on manual selections).

    I vote against this change. I like having as much screen real estate as possible for the map.

    Sorry if I missed it in this thread...getting kinda big.
    When I am in Gps, if I hit ANY buttons on the right (ie: gas) IG disappears and all buttons become inop. I actually have to reboot.
    It was working fine, I just wish I knew when this started.

    I am seeing this as well. I was away for a few days and have missed a few pages. I scanned for this problem but didn't see it.

    I found that you don't need to reboot (assuming you have a keyboard). Just hit escape and it returns to normal.

    For me it started with v2.11 downloaded 4/25/07.

    Update to my last post: It is only the "Route to" and "Auto Config" buttons that don't appear to be working. I am calling the top right button the "Route to" button.

    Hi John,
    Loving the updates from yesterday, but I sure found a really interesting bug this morning. Well, it is kinda a bug, because I know you aren't officially supporting RREarth, but anyway here goes. I don't have satellite radio so I use the skin editor to remap the satellite radio to RREarth (ie: change command "XM">"GE_start"). Anyway, when I leave RREarth and go back to the main menue, lo & behold, the entire upper part of the main screen where you recently placed the transparent spectrum analyser is a really wide and short google earth window! No song information or anything else is visible in that window. While you don't support RREarth, you may be interested in knowing this for future skin changes in case u do end up implementing it later. I think I probably have to either revert back to the previous main menu skin or else figure out a way to change that myself (for me, a nearly impossible task!). I wish I could get a screen capture of this for you, but I don't have a keyboard hooked up to my carpc & thus no prtscn button.

    John,
    I had an idea: The player skin, when you dont have an album art, it says No Album Art Available, Instead when there is no Album art, i think it would be nice to place an image there, maybe a Music tone image, or something default to make it look nice.
    When i have the visualizer on with low transparency, would be nice to have an image there, if its not too much work.

    Well too bad! I added it! hahaha! Just kidding of course, that bar was tall enough as it was to fit the song info and the city, County & zip. The bar was too short to fit the state in as well... but if you do not know what state you are in, you shouldn't be behind the wheel in the first place

    Sorry, That one is my fault. I failed to change the image names that those to skins use, or failed to make the PNG's all together. It will be fixed in the next release.

    I can do that quite easily, I will just put a nice looking CD jewel case or something there instead.

    Hmm - been on the road out of town and found a few more things that might smooth out this skin. Not that it needs it

    Guess I owe more to your beer fund too - my first round was probably barely enough to get you a buzz lol...

    OK:
    Radio skin:
    #1 - The mute button acts wierd. It works, but the muted up-state looks like the unmuted up-state. Rollover/down states are correct, but as you can see in the attached image, (it's currently muted) I can't tell it's muted.
    #2, #3 - Anyway to make one of the 2 ways to change channels a page up/dn instead? See diagram - maybe make #2 the page up/dn and #3 leave as channel up/dn?

    Thanks John - Looks great!!!


    Edit: dammit, pic won't upload.
    Edit again - ok here it is...
