    RR skin, only for Volvo drivers

    The skin i wanted needed:

    - big buttons
    - buttons on the same place (if posible)
    - green collor (dash has green lighting)

    Concept of the skin is the volvo logo, from that logo the square grows in diffeent sizes in the other pages of the skin.
    The light area comes back in the skin in a mutch darker shade.
    The pictures are made with adt (autodesk) (using gradients)



    there are also designs in the picture witch i didn't use / were changed.
    Making the design with cad had one big advantage because of the blocks (of the keys)

    My screen has a viewable size of 150x90 mm, so thats the size of the picures in adt. Then the block was scaled in the x direction, so it would be 600x800 pix. that way the design on the screen would be the same as the skin in the car.
    The F or A (top right) key brings you back to the previous picture, or for the menu to the mixer.
    The volume is always in the left lower corner. The logo also holds the albumart. Only problem when changing a song in the mp3 player. The picture in the main menu doesn't change as wel. you need to change a song (that has a different albumart) to change it. (Fixed in volvoskin V2)

    I 'll make pictures of the skin in the car in a few of weeks.

    ps is there a place where i can upload the skin and the .dwg ? (answerd by monkeyracer)

    To download the Volvoskin

    To download volvoskinV2
    Changed / added : reloadskin commands in the skin, for changing albumart in the whole skin at the same time, and the editional track info by pressing the albumart

    You can use and, or moddify the skin for noncommersial use only, copyrights protected by http://www.architectenregister.nl/

    Here's a thread I have started about the album art thing:

    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/rr-b...ng-change.html

    Also, there are a lot of file hosting sites, a lot of free ones, and some that limit the file size. Compress the Skin with .zip or .rar and you might be able to use the mp3car.com file server. The .dwg's are small enough to post without compression. I made an account with office live, and they will host files up to 10MB with the free account.

    uploaded the skin. (thanks to monkeyracer for the pointer)

    If you have points of improvement, or just love it as it is, let me know.

    only problem i know of is the osk, the ! doesn't work jet. Help on that would be nice.
    @ changed it tho the same code in a nother skin, 033 and "!" but still doesn't work, also that skin doesn't show the ! so probably somting outside RR

    enjoy

    I found myself tapping on the picture in the menu screen, expecting there would be more info on the playing song.

    What i want to, is to make a new skin page, that is displayed when you touch te picture in the menu-page. That page will contain a bigger alumart and display all tags of the song. And in front of the tag what it means,
    Like albumname: tag , etc….

    The text can be put in the picture, but it doesn’t look nearly as nice as the text made by RR, you can see its not text, but a picture.

    So is it possible to put in text in RR, that doesn’t do anything?

    Simple label codes can be used. If you want it to display to read "Album"

    then you would use the code:

    L01,...,"=Album"

    It will display anything you type after the = sign.

    There have been issues getting the album art to show up on more than one screen, if you can get it to work, post your results to share with the rest of us.

    The tv card works fine on the desktop. When i put it in hte car, i can install the driver and the mobo sees the tv-card, only than it can't pic up any signal, even when i park the car outside an put the antanna on the roof of the car, and the other one out of the window. Than i copyed the folder from the desktop and tride that in the car. It could see the changels, but no signals. So i don't thik i will be able to use the tv card in the car.

    But i have done some work on the Hauppage Wintv page for the skin. Is pretty simpel coding.

    Here is the menu skin button code(it pauses mp3 or the radio) :

    B05,535,110,255,100,"PAUSE||= / / ||LOAD;tv1.SKIN||= / / ||RUN;F:\Program Files\WinTV\WinTV2K.EXE" ,tv1

    F:\ is my test os you probably need to put a C instead.

    The page of the tv card is simpel, you can use the help file (of the happage) to find the keys you want to use.
    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/road...-send-key.html for coding RR

    I only wanted the sound, and up or down a program, and 1 button to go back to the menu-page.

    Codes of the hauppage tv page:

    MEDIACAR Skin
    MEDIACAR tv1 Skin
    gps day.jpg,gps day.jpg,gps on.jpg,gps night.jpg


    /, B, x, y, w, h, Command;COMMANDCODES, Tooltip
    B01,5,510,155,85,"VOL-",volume -
    B02,160,510,160,85,"VOL+",volume +
    B03,320,510,160,85,"SENDKEY;{-}",-
    B04,481,509,160,85,"SENDKEY;{+}",+
    B05,640,509,155,85,"SENDKEY;%{F4}||= / ||EXIT||= / ||RESUME" ,"exit"

    /, A, x, y, w, h, color R;RGB, G, B
    A01,0,0,800,510,0

    /, C, x, y, w, h
    C01,0,0,800,510

    END

    If you know why my tv card isn't working, let me know.
