    Just got back from south Flordia last night, I am going to take a look at Enforcers archive and start coding

    I have really been thinking about this and may make the jump to GDI+ for release 2.0, still trying to figure out if going to PNG would be able to change the orange color theme to any RGB color, like in shock skin.

    I've been thinking about the GDI+ for this skin, and there's more benefits than downsides.
    I think you should be able to make a slider in the spot that you want the Orange dot but have no code to it (it doesn't move, the clickable area will be 1x1 pixels) and then have a dynamically selectable definition for the slider depending on the color the user wants ("#DotColor#.png or something like that, you would need a different slider.png for each color), along with whatever options that could be changed. Or have one button that changes the whole skin to each theme.

    So, let's say someone driving a triple black Ford Mustang wants to change anything that is orange to Ford Green, he would just need to go to the appropriate menu, press Ford Green, and all the appropriate settings take place from one button press. (You can also change each setting separately, but there would be a few "presets" maybe)
    I can look at this a little more tonight when I get home if you want.
    It would take completely rebuilding the skin so that there's not much hard coded into the images, but it would be appropriate for version 2.0.

    Ok, the custom slider thing will work. so step by step:

    Create each dot or logo or anything that will change color as a seperate file for each color. For convention name the slider as [color]Slider.png (example, RedSlider.png, BlueSlider.png, etc.)

    Then place the slider where you want the image, but on the image file path use
    Code:
    "#Slider#"
    instead of the image file.

    Then create buttons that when clicked do this:
    Code:
    "WRITETOFILE;$skinpath$slider.skin;=/DEFINE Slider RedSlider.png||ADDTOFILE;$skinpath$slider.skin;=END||RELOADSKIN"
    
    .
    (One for each color)

    To also change the font color, you would just add that code to the same button.

    So this way the logo's can still have bevel effects, etc. with still being able to change colors.


    EDIT:
    Here's the code that I got to work for this:
    Code:
    "WRITETOFILE;$skinpath$slider.skin;=/DEFINE Dots Blueslider.png||ADDTOFILE;$skinpath$slider.skin;=END||WRITETOFILE;$skinpath$logo.skin;=/DEFINE Logo Bluelogo.png||ADDTOFILE;$skinpath$logo.skin;=END||WRITETOFILE;$skinpath$font.skin;=/DEFINE FRed 000||ADDTOFILE;$skinpath$font.skin;=/DEFINE FGreen 000||ADDTOFILE;$skinpath$font.skin;=/DEFINE FBlue 255||ADDTOFILE;$skinpath$font.skin;=END||RELOADSKIN||Load;Theme.skin"
    
    .
    and
    Code:
    INC,font.skin
    INC,logo.skin
    INC,slider.skin
    and
    Code:
    S,0,0,89,77,0,0,89,77,v,01,"#Logo#",77,"SYNTH",
    S,66,91,30,30,0,0,30,30,v,01,"#Dots#",30,"VOL;<AUDIO LINE>",
    .
    This defines the slider, logo and font color to a preset of Blue, it's easy enough to change this to almost any set of colors that we would want to use.

    This is what the end result is:



    The only problems I had was that it would load multiple instances of IG, but that's something that can be worked around.

    Wow, Nice work on the code!

    Thats actually exactly what I had in mind!

    The only thing I don't like about using RR to render the menu font is the lack of stroke and outline; for instance, I would like the menu font to stay white and turn to blue when selected. Your code above will work perfect for the dots/logo and other colored details.

    The iG restart can be eliminated by tweaking the Exectbl file.

    i tryed the same

    thing with sliders, which did work very well, it was nice to have the sliders looking almost the same as the rest of the scr, but thats 1 of the reason i did not continue,
    as it opened a can of worms in people saying can i have this and that color, my slider folder was getting bigger than my skin folder lol... and the menu scr to select your color spreaded over 2 pages in the skin. what might be a good idea is to have a set of colors say 6 in total
    that you have made, and let others make there own slider colors,that way you won't get what i had in a big folder.

    but heh thats my choice to stop, good work on this thou.

    I don't like the changeable text either, but it was an exercise in possibility. If we can have that color overlay only when the button is pressed, that would be the way to do it. I wonder if guino would be willing to help implement a label code that can be different colors when a button is pressed. Then we would be able to have the off color be blank, and the on and/or down colors to be dynamically selectable overlayed on the white text with stroke.

    I was playing with my custom font color chooser to see if there was a way to change the dots to any of the 16 million RGB colors, but I haven't found one yet.
    I was thinking of having a page that has just a grid of available colors, limited to maybe 32 options, and have a tutorial to show how to make a custom color if the end user wants it.
