** NOTE ** : Make sure that your RR.INI setting for the background path is correctly called "backgroundpath", and not "background". This is required to make the background selector work correctly. Needs manually editing of the RR.INI file.

at the moment the skin is about 90 % completed ... some work to be completed on the Radio skin, and some on the "ON" screens etc ... afterthat I'll release.
unfortunately these ain't in PSD format I haven't had time to learn it yet, so I'm using MS Visio and the files are in VSD format, but if anyone else want's them I'm more than happy to release them.
well, all it matters is the results, and i do like it a lot.
Here are some screenshots from Teknik v2.0 ... still in development. This is a sister skin to Teknik v1.0 and should have the same functionality as v1.0 ... coverflow may be added once I can get it working correctly (the album select function ain't doing what it should at the moment)
Images are ... Menu, Audio Player, Audio Player-2, Music Library, and Skin Browser.
Any comments or suggestions for either skin ???
Added screenshots of Teknik v2.0 for review and commens ....
Very nice. The color contrast is excellent.
In your first skin i think it would be more natural to reach for the most common functions (audio, video, satnav) towards the top. For sure move the "exit" button to the very bottom.
Version 2 looks REALLY nice (really like the iphone style)
Hope you keep it's development going....
That's a good point about the menu layout in v1.0 - I'll rearrange the items to allow for the more commonly used items at the top, and having the exit at the bottom does make more sense, but I just though having it highlighted somewhere different added to the visual appeal of the screen.
