    The playlist buttons are blank. The text is only set by labels in the audio player skin. You can change them to point to whatever playlists you want (in any folder, with any name) and have the buttons say whatever you want. Just edit the audio_player.skin file.

    To change the text on the buttons edit the following lines in audio_player.skin
    Code:
    L13,672,445,122,40,255,255,255,20,"Calibri","=Everything","CENTER"
    L12,539,445,122,40,255,255,255,20,"Calibri","=Mix","CENTER"
    L11,405,445,122,40,255,255,255,20,"Calibri","=Mix","CENTER"
    L10,272,445,122,40,255,255,255,20,"Calibri","=Church","CENTER"
    L09,139,445,122,40,255,255,255,20,"Calibri","=Mix","CENTER"
    L08,6,445,122,40,255,255,255,20,"Calibri","=Country","CENTER"
    To change the buttons to point to different playlists edit the paths in these lines (same file)
    Code:
    B14,2,434,130,55,"LOADLIST;C:\Playlists\1.m3u;Playlist 1",
    B15,135,434,130,55,"LOADLIST;C:\Playlists\2.m3u;Playlist 2",
    B16,268,434,130,55,"LOADLIST;C:\Playlists\3.m3u;Playlist 3",
    B17,401,434,130,55,"LOADLIST;C:\Playlists\4.m3u;Playlist 4",
    B18,535,434,130,55,"LOADLIST;C:\Playlists\5.m3u;Playlist 5",
    B19,668,434,130,55,"LOADLIST;C:\Playlists\6.m3u;Playlist 6",
    The only hard coded (image text) buttons in the entire skin are the graphic buttons (blue orbs) and the audio, video, nav buttons on the main screen.

    guess tensai gotta share the .psd files so WE can edit it for our pernsonal needs
    but what i like the most is the clean elegant look in it
    too much functions will destroy the better thing in the skin
    maybe page changing like centrafuse could help with it

    anyway... still love tensai work and barely can wait till the next updates

    You're right, sorry, i missed it in skineditor. The labels are behind the buttons so when i clicked, the command for "load playlist" kept popin' up.

    Ok.. soo... while driving to DIA for my trip last week, my carpc gave out completely. Seems to be that the motherboard is shot. Power comes on, fans spin up... and then... nothing. I've tried resetting the BIOS using the jumpers. I've removed the RAM and tried other chips. I've disconnected everything possible and always the same result. Maybe thats what I get for buying a used board from ebay... Anyway, I've been trying o figure that out all week so I haven't touched the skin.

    I figured out how I want to lay out the volume buttons so that they're accessible across all of the screens and I've made a few of the other tweaks so hopefully I'll be releasing an updated version soon. I also plan on releasing the PSD files at the same time. Although, again the download is 60MB and I kind of need my bandwidth so I'll be throttling the download speeds for those files. After that you guys are free to run with it and add any features you want.

    Again, I appreciate the support and patience on this. Hopefully I'll have this out before too long.

    Take your time, Tensai
    I REALLY wish that skin out because it's BEUTIFULL. but you can't rush an artist :P

    Try using some hosting service (as rapidshare or similar) to help with the new big sized release. use the hosting service as primary download and keep your site just as alternative link

    Sorry about your mobo. I know this might sound stupid, but have u disconected the reset button? Got myself stuck about 6 months on my secundary carputer just because a short circuit on the reset button connector. The simptoms was the same. The fans goes on and after a second the computer goes off. some time it kept on, but no video.
    Talking about video, do your mobo has an onboard speaker? or do u have some plugged to it? boot beep codes are VERY helpfull on this kind of situation

    No beeps at all usually tells your processor and/or mobo is(are) dead
    Short but spaced beeps means your memory is dead
    Two very fast beeps followed by another 6 bips means your video board is dead

    hope it helps

    Thats a good thought. I'll look into rapidshare or some of the other services.

    I never have hooked anything up to the reset pins so I know thats not it. In fact the only pins being used on the MOBO header are the power+ and power_grnd. The fans spin up, no video, no nothing. There is a built in speaker, but I don't get any beeps at all anyway. I might just do a little bit of re-wiring and throw in a P4 1.7GHz I've got sitting here. It's funny, cause the whole reason I started this skin was to get the transparencies fast enough for my epia 800 to handle them. If this P4 works out, that won't even matter any more.

    Anyway... on with the work.

    I updated the first post. There is a download to the PSD files. Note that I did NOT use photoshop to create these images. I used a free program called Paint.NET. Its almost identical to photoshop. Just google it and you can download it. From there you can convert these to actual PSDs or just modify them however you see fit.

    I haven't done anything new to the skin and I may not since I'm in the process of making major changes to my whole system, and the skin is the least of my worries at the moment.

    Anyway, if you have any questions, comments, thoughts, critiques, suggestions, stories, or jokes, just let me know.

    Enjoy!

    Updates

    So... I lied. I got impatient while waiting for my new hardware to arrive and did a few changes to the skin.

    I didn't add any VOL buttons because I couldn't find a way to fit them in and keep it looking clean and un-cluttered. I did get a few other suggestions taken care of.

    -The clip region is gone from the GPS screen (allowing for IGNative)
    -Added a generic picture to the AlbumArt spot in case there is no album art
    -Added ability to preview background before choosing one
    -Background image can be stored anywhere on your computer, not just in the $skinpath$\Background folder
    -Tweaked the transparencies
    -Other stuff

    The new skin is available from the first post. Note that the PSDs are NOT current. But you can still download them if you wish.
