    Skin code help needed

    I have been trying to learn to skin for several weeks now. I have been editing the BMV2 skin to learn all the functions of the skin editor. I have two questions that maybe someone might be able to answer.

    1. Under the add button, I see there is an image option. I tried adding images, in jpeg to my skin with no avail. I added the jpeg to the skin folder, created the box in the skin editor, and then I tried to edit the menu.txt, but I still can't see the image. How should the line appear in the menu.txt?

    2. On the main menu screen of BMV2, it displays the current track title. Is it possible to also display, in another box, the next track that RR will play?
    I told my psychiatrist that everyone hates me. He said I was being ridiculous - everyone hasn't met me yet .

    1-This is a sample IMG line that should work (as long as the JPG exists):
    IMG,010,010,210,210,"IMAGE.JPG",OUT
    (For more info, please search for IMG in skin commands.txt -- highly recommended reading)

    2-There's currently no label code for displaying the title/artist for the next song (but a plugin could be made for that), there's only a label code for obtaining the PATH to the next song in the playlist.

    Try looking in the "Documentation" folder in your rr folder...

    There are also all the other RR related docs there...

    Thanks Blue. I'll look in there after I get done with work. This 9-5 is really getting in the way of progress.
