    The albumart does work for me to; and i have them named however i want. It would be good for the skin to start with the vis active, right now it starts with a big empty box untill you activate the vis..

    No skin browser and/or exit menu made it hard to close RR, had to close it through task manager.
    Definitely needs audio controls on the main screen, and really, every screen. When they are in a consistent location, they are much easier to use without having to take your eyes off the road.
    Some of the symbols are a little cryptic. But after touch and trial it becomes a little more clear.
    It's definitely a good start, but it does need a little work. Can't wait for the updated release.
    MonkeyRacer, didn't you have a way to start the vis when the skin starts? I seem to remember something like that in your earlier skins; if you do, that might be a good addition to this skin..

    Here's the post:

    I was talking with the OP about it in his other thread about this skin, as well as someone else in a different skin thread:

    For it to work perfectly on my old skin, I had to set each button that exits from that skin to first turn off the VISU and then go to the other skin, that way when I came back to the Audio player, it auto loaded the VISU again.

    I'd still leave an invisible button in the VISU area so if it gets out of cycle somehow, the user can just press the visu area to activate or deactivate it.

    I want to say that I recently tried it with my mAv1c skin and I don't think I needed to turn it off when I navigated away from the menu.skin. When I'd come back to the menu.skin it seemed to stay there. I want to double check when I get home to that computer to test it though.

    I have this:

    Code:
    "ONSKINSTART","VISU"
    in the skin's exectbl (so it won't affect other skins.)

    I don't have mine start on load since for the most part, I won't have the VISU running, I have my main screen focus more on the song than the visuals (I'm driving, I won't look at it while I'm driving, if the passenger wants to watch the visuals, they can press the visu button...) But this is my personal preference.

    Album art works on every single skin I have on my computer, except this one and it doesn't really make any sense. You have the same commands as the other skins...
    It shows at first, but if I navigate away from the menu.skin and back, the image goes away... Visu is working fine now...

    I made a few changes to your skin to make it easier to test out, like I copied over an exit_menu.skin from another skin, and made the "More" button actually load the menu2.skin

    Code:
    "Load;menu2.skin||VISEMBED","menu2"
    or you can add it to the exectbl in your skin as:

    Code:
    "MENU2","Load;menu2.skin||VISEMBED",menu.skin
    Also I put the much needed audio controls to the menu and menu2 skins:

    Would you share the jpgs for the main menu (with the audio buttons)

    I can upload the whole skin later tonight, but I wanted to see if GMC would post the PSD's so we can actually make other changes as well. I'm sure he's hard at work on this skin, and I kind of wanted to give him time to post an update first.
    The buttons are not lined up in all the skins, and the menu2 doesn't have the labels it should have (time track artist and album) and the exit_menu is from my avicted skins, which nowhere near match this skin. So if we had the PSD's we could probably help further the development along.
