    ok!

    now i'm oficialy in love with this skin

    it's the one running on my config now and guess it will be for a long time

    tensai, guess u forgot some mute indicator on the main screen
    and i thougth about using the mute button to bring a pop up screen to set the volume
    that would keep the visual clean and solve the problem

    i got the code to do it but not even a quarter of your desin skills. if u want it, just let me know

    EDITING

    just tested it
    still prefer the 2.0 transparencies
    and don't like the cd on the album art area (but i can edit it )

    read the readme.txt file
    don't know if you know, but u can have a exectbl.ini file inside your skin folder
    and that will do the trick
    but guess there's some better way to update the BGs, just like a pic viewer
    never sineffed trough a code for it, but there's some around

    keep up with the best skin around IMO

    I didn't know that a skin could have its own exectbl file. Some day I'm definitely going to have to read some of the instructions/tutorials. I'll go ahead a make that change real quick so people don't have to go editing their own files.

    You're right about the cd in the album art area. I don't ever see it since I have all of the cover art for my music. Feel free the replace it with whatever you find. If you find something good let me know and I'll put it in my version.

    I'll take a look at the popup window for volume control. The only draw back to that is that its not accessible from any other screen other than the main menu. But maybe something is better than nothing.

    I"m trying to avoid using the pic viewer for backgrounds, in case I decide to implement a pic viewer someday. I thought I was pretty clever with the way I came up with to load previews, but it looks like MGD came up with a very similar solution without using the timer... here.

    Humm! I'm not getting the BG preview. Added the line to ExecTBL.ini but nothing.

    It don't look like there's an area defined for the preview to show-up..could that be it?

    the BG preview works fine for me
    but i had the last version installed before
    so i guess it's something with the background path

    Are you getting a list of files in the directory list? If so, as long as one is highlighted you should be getting the preview.

    I did screw up the media browser png files when I changed to the local exectbl though. Maybe I screwed up more than I thought. I'll take a look as soon as I get home in a few hours and get a fixed version posted.

    Should there be an area for the preview defined in here?

    The definition for the preview in that area comes from a LDIMG/LOADIMG command in ExecTBL.ini. So it sounds like your command in that file is not working quite right for some reason.

    This morning I updated the skin so that the needed command was already included in a copy of ExecTBL.ini located within the skin directory. Thus, no commands needed to be added to RR's default ExecTBL.ini.

    Go ahead and remove the line from your ExecTBL.ini and I'll post a new download in about an hour. Then we'll see what we can get.

    OK. The fixed version is posted. You should remove any additions you made to the RR default ExecTBL.ini file.

    The new version doesn't require any manual modifications. It should just work. Let me know what you find.

    Also! Make sure you're using the newest version of RoadRunner (9/9/07).

    EDIT: The LDIMG command wasn't available until the 9/2/07 version. So if you're using anything older than that, the previews won't work at all.

    Aha! I haven't installed the new version of RR (scared!) yet but i see i'm going to have to. Sorry to waste your time.

    Indeed that is an engenious way to make the image show-up; do you think all transparent skins can access the same BG folder with this command (in ExecTBL)?

    Oh sure. If everyone decided to use "my documents\pictures" as a background folder then ldimg would work fine. It allows you to set any path to the file.

    In SE2.1 if you use the directory listing to browse to any other image file, no matter where it is on the computer, it will allow you to use that as the background from that point on.

    The more I skin for RR the more I love it. Guino is the man. He's written some truly top-notch software.

    When I first started carpcs I voted on some thread that streetdeck was the best FE because it was easy to set up. But.. I was wrong. RR all the way. Glad I never bought streedeck.
