    ok, I started to work on color skins, and have been diverted to make a new skin styled after the AVIC-Z2. This skin is a great skin, but I wanted to make something that has a larger dynamic area, vis, video, etc. The effective area is 745 x 400 pixels rather than this skin which is 657 x 357. It's also a 800 x 480 skin to better match the widescreen that i'm getting. (800 x 600 will strech, but I don't like pixels being stretched.)

    I'll post the links to the beta version soon, I want to work on the main skins first, the menu, audio, video, web, etc.

    I'll still post the different colors, but it takes time to manipulate the PSD's for this. (Which is another consideration for the new skin. I want to be able to manipulate it more.)

    All the PSD files are included in the skin, just go in to the PSD files folder, open the skin closest to what you want to change, and make it suit your needs. Make sure you also open up the common commands file and copy paste the info into your new skin. (if you let me know what functions you want for these skins, i can probably add it into the main download.) I think i might change this so there is two menus, the one now, and a second one for auxillary functions, (OBDii will be moved) addind e-mail skin, etc. check back soon for updates.

    Check out my AvicZ2 skins too, they are a little easier to customize. They will stretch to 800 x 600 if you change the info in the ini file.

    Both skins are currently being updated now though, so give it a few minutes and download the newest version.

    Glad it's working well for you, I tried to make something easy to read, but had some sort of style to it. The Avic skins also have a little more uniformity across all the skins, it's at least worth a look.
