Wait a moment. If it's not directly supported, maybe you'll need a lot of time and code for implement it, when you can do other more interesting things. Transparency is not a priority, since the background will be always the same (the black "screen"). It can just be displayed over the main graphic, and problem solved with JPGs or BMPs.I do intend to add support every feature I possibly can for this skin.. I do not know how much trouble it is to support the PNG format in VB... I know it is not directly supported, but I'll look into it..
It's Via Michelin MapSonic. But again, remember, those screenshots are a concept, I don't know if MapSonic can be enbedded that way.what GPS software is that in your pic?
