    That's it for now.

    As you can see on the menu layout mine will be a lot simpeler than Enforcers one. Only the basic functions will be present in mine. Also, this is the night version of course. The day version will probably look very similar to Enforcers one. That is, If I ever finish the darn thing...
    great job guys...i like the font on bimmerstyles version a bit better.

    Sorry, I've been away from the PC for some time. Prison Break was on.

    Thanks doctordl. Don't know when I'll be finished though (if I ever finish).

    @Enforcer: My speaker cone? You mean that thing in the bottom left corner? I simply copied and pasted this from one of the pics on the previous page and cleaned it up a bit. When you look closely you will notice it has some noise left in it.

    I'm still far away from a beta but making progress.

    Keep in mind that this will be a skin with only the very basic functions. I'm not using any more functions so I'm not planning to incoporate them in the skin. When finished I'm willing to release the PSD's so people who want can create more functions as needed.

    I've changed the lay-out of the audio-player a little bit. Also in the bottom left corner there is an "exit" button now. It always returns to the previous screen. In main menu it goes to the exit menu.



    To keep the look as OEM'ish as possible the playlist and cd cover aren't visible in the audio screen but the can become visible when pressing the buttons for them. Then it looks like this:





    Audio browser looks like this:



    Navigation is also finished. Took quite some time because I wanted to keep the eye thingy in the left and make it so that its on top of the navi screen.



    I did this using an overlay with the Elcosmenu plugin. It creates an overlay on top of RR and the navi software. Problem is when using the OSK "Q" and "A" arent visible. So when you press the eye on the overlay it dissapears and the original skin becomes visible.





    This way it seems as if the left part slides away. Pressing the eye again brings the overlay back as if it slides back. Only problem is that this skin images are made for PC navigator 7. With other navigation software it wil look kinda funky in the left between the eye and the navigation screen. Don't really know how I will fix this if the skin should be released. Probably I'll make it black. It's not as sleek as it is now bot then at least it'll match all software.

    Also the day skin is finished as far as the night skin. I'm trying to make them together. This looks like this:





    That's it so far.

    Questions, comments, suggestions,...?

    Looking cool.


    I will probably step back and let you do this one as I don't really have the time (and ability) that you do. (might take a stab at adding what you don't though)


    Although I will be doing another iDrive style but I think you have this one in hand.

    Well I have the next 5 days off, but I will want to use them to do the hardware stuff, and try to do some work on my home network.

    And some decorating . . . . . etc.
