my skin is ready for a download in beta stage...
some things are gonna change before it's totally done...
but for now i need people to check it out and get me a list of bugs
things still need to be skinned:
all mappoint related material
(all the radio_player skins are done)
some isues in the radioplayer (fonts and stuff)
things thats gonna change:
some icons especially in the the front menu
more flash will be added
other tiny things here and there
i prob. forgot something along the way
but here's the download
big thanx to:
Guino (super frontend like tina turner would say: simply the best)
AngelGR (for inspiration and i borowed some of the code for the skin browser)
screenshots as requested
page is up again.. .had to do a minor change and add screenshots to the download page
Dude, that flash thingy in the main menu is AWESOME! when you said you did something with flash I was imagining that gear rotating, but this is definitely more suttle.
This skin is very cool! I'm definitely working on the "scroll title" soon now (unless you tell me you want to use some cool flash effect for the scroll..)
One suggestion: I'd make the MP3 screen with the same space for album art as the Browse screen (since it will display the album art of the current song). Other than that just one technical thingy here and there:
-You can comment out the "Y" lines of your .skin files if you don't want to use "backgrounds" for your sliders (which you don't) that makes it faster and prevents it from "flickering"..
-You'll definitely need at least a "close" button in the applications screen. Next/Prev would be nice for running multiple applications.. Tip: those buttons could actually be placed in a bar at the bottom -- if you do so, add a OSK keyboard button cause I want to add that (but have no screen to try with)..
Great work man!!
PS: I also have to improve a bit on the "looping screen" problem otherwise you won't get to the main menu after you click on a few buttons on the top -- unless you add a button there to "LOAD;menu.skin"... I'll fix this no matter what.
Looks awsome i will try it in the car when i go out tonight
thx people.... i'll get to work on the issues with the skin tomorow....
Guino>> i actually thought about the menu button all evening but i have been out tonight... how soon do u think u'r gonna implement it in RR when u click exit?
if it's this week i wont do the button thingy i guess
the mp3 player screen are gonna be the same as the browser in the next update
the close button will also be there both for apps and gps menu
also i thought about doing the song scroll thingy in flash... i'll have a look at it tomorow too
the flicker thing with the sliders u gotta explain a little.... but i'll see if i can fix it myself
also im making a complete skin for mapmonkey to go with this
new update should be ready wednsday evening
I'll try fixing the menu exit thingy tonight..
the flicker thing.. just adda a /, or delete any line in your .skin files starting with the letter Y.
I tried it at 800x600 resolution with the appropriate changes in general.ini. Doesn't seem to re-size properly. Can I request a 800x600 verision. Looks awesome otherwise.
