    I think the buttons need to be a little less transparent so that there is a little more contrast between the text and the background.

    well, it's not hard to accomplish, since there's very few images to change. I'll play with the transparency a little bit later.

    ok, here's some screen tests.

    Original Release at 50% transparency:



    Changed transparency to 66%:



    Changed to 75%:



    So which looks better?

    Just a tad less transparent - 66% would be good IMO.

    Ever thought about adding some progress bars? A slider would fit nicely in that space in between the track name and main window. Just a thought.

    I know this has been a while since I've updated. I've been putting my CARPC project on hold and as such, my skin projects have been on hold as well. I bought a new car, and I will soon get back into installing the system in the new vehicle, so the skin projects will be picked up again.

    I was thinking that a slider would be a good idea. I'm going to catch up to what I've been missing out with what is new with RR, and maybe implement a few ideas on this skin, and some improvements will be coming soon.

    Anyone using this skin that has any suggestions on what should be improved?

    OK, I was looking at this a little more, and there are a few things that will be fixed for the 1.02 release that will be coming soon:

    - Transparency set at 66% (see previous post)
    - Slider bar added to all appropriate screens
    - In the Video Player skin, pressing next or prev will only fast forward or rewind, changing the label so that pressing it will next or prev (There's a slider that will allow fast forward and rewind now)
    - OSK revised to match the look of this skin
    - Mixer revised to match the look of this skin
    - Weather Details revised to match the look of this skin

    I have some time off coming up (easter) so I'll have a chance to update it, so I hope to have the new version by Sunday night.

    Anything I'm missing that needs to be changed or added?

    I posted a screen shot of the weather details skin. I did 4 day instead of 5 so it would fit, and here, most of the time the 5th day is way off from what actually happens.
    I got all screens set to 66% transparency.
    I got the slider on, but i'm not completely fond of the look of it though. (Look at the screen shot of the weather details) I'm trying to develop a graduated slider (it fills in as the song progresses.) but I can't decide on the look of the slider.
    I revised the OSK, but there's a lot of lining up to do with the labels, and that's what is delaying the 1.02 release.
    I really never use the mixer screen, so that may stay as it is.
    As soon as I get everything lined up for the OSK, I'll post the new release.
