    Release - AvicZ2 800 x 480

    Hello all, whilst I was working on new color skins for my avicted skins (download below in my sig) I decided I'd like to make a 480 skin as well, since my screen is/will be widescreen. This skin is based on my first one, just changed a few things around. So here's my second try at making skins. Hope you like it.

    Current Status:
    Completed skins:
    MENU.skin
    AUDIO_PLAYER.skin
    AUDIO_BROWSER.skin
    EXTERNAL_GPS.skin
    LAUNCH.skin
    OSK.skin
    VIDEO_BROWSER.skin
    VIDEO_PLAYER.skin
    WBROWSER.skin
    SKIN_BROWSER.skin (settings are located here as well.)
    OUTLOOK.skin (e-mail)

    In progress:
    OBDii.skin

    Download Links:
    Hosted on my website: jcautodesign.com
    AvicZ2
    AvicZ2 Blue
    AvicZ2 Red


    Screen shots: (these are jpgs which have pixellated the design, the actual skin is very clean.)
    Menu no vis:


    Menu vis on:


    Audio Player:


    Audio Browser:


    Video Browser:


    Web Browser:


    GPS (iguidance):


    Launch:


    Application (notepad):


    OSK (New):


    Blue Skin:


    Red Skin:


    Stretched to 800 x 600 (through rr)


    I kinda like that the vis is transparent so you can see the album art below. This will be something the user has to change in the screensaver.ini, I used a value of 100 for default opacity. The blank black spots next to the album art on both sides, and the visu button on the top activate/cancel the vis. The buttons on the top are larger than they appear (like objects in your passenger side mirror) so clicking pretty close to the option will work.

    Subscribe to this thread if you'd like to keep track of my progress, and if you have comments or questions, please post here rather than PM me. Enjoy!

    Release Notes: (Last Update Uploaded 06/09/07)
    1.2: Changed Menu skins (Main_Menu, Audio_Function, Video_Function, Exit_menu) to more closely resemble this skin as well as the OSK. Also added transition effects to most skins. Red skin released.
    1.1: Added minimize button to all skins except wbrowser (webfavs) and video_player (zoom) by clicking the pioneer button.
    Changed text in AUDIO_BROWSER to "expand folder" from "next folder"
    Beta Release: Please read included readme file. This pioneer logo at the top left is also in some skins a button.

    This skin has evolved into the hAv1c skin. Information can be found there about the new skin.

    use screensaver.ini to chance to the opacity of the vis.

    Thanks, that's all it is.
    Since this is user dependent, I will make a note in the readme file, as well as in the first post.

    Changed it to 800X600 and it still look and work great.

    It's kind-a surprise when you hit the Day/night button, i had no idea that would happen I got stuck tho'..how do you go back to AvicZ2 without having to close the skin?

    what do you have set for your day/night skins?
    And what happens? what it's supposed to do or something random?

    for my test rig, i put both as the AvicZ2, so I haven't even tested that button. (also, I'm pretty sure the autoskinmode should be set to 0, otherwise it resets to the original skin depending on time.) I think I'll be using the auto skin change for the most part, but not sure if I want to keep changing it for seasons changes.

    One thing I tried to do with this skin is allow it to be used in almost any horizontal orientation. As long as you change the .ini for what the skin displays, it should strech well. The other thing is the visualizations and "screens" (dynamic areas) are pretty close to the same apsect ratio, so most things will be the correct ration (skin browser is for sure in the correct ratio, so this will help preview a skin on your own screen.)
