    Of course, I assume you know that you'll have to make the whole button in flash for the above to work.. just have your flash only show the plain text when loaded, then when you click on it, it should play the animation and then execute the selected command using FScommand... but it should work fine...

    Here's another idea I was working on. I think this one ties in most closely to the acutall mmi system. Let me know what you guys think. Also do you think I should add some sounds to this as well.

    I don't know which one I like better. They both have appeal, but I think I would have to give the nod to the bottom skin.... simple is always better. I am just wondering how difficult it would be to invert the skin for daytime use. I have tried to use it during the day, but it is very hard to see. I'd be curious to see the inverse of the skin....

    Just thinkin aloud.

    Thanks for the efforts!

    Regarding making it a daytime skin, I think You may be able to put a lighter colored background instead of the black and it should work I believe. Also I'm probably going to make the current skin into 800x480 and this shouldn't be too hard because there is plenty of room to work with.

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean, but I have buttons in the flash file that when you click it goes to that part. I'm attaching two .swf files one has the actual skin as the background and the second has no background. Let me know if I am doing this correct. thanks.

    Try the teaser and let me know if anything should be adjusted, like the speed and such.

    This will work IF:

    -At the END o the animation (done when pressing the option), you run the FSCommand required to execute that menu option-- like: FSCommand("AUDIO",""). That's what tells RR that the user has clicked the option in FLASH.

    -After executing the appropriate FSCommand, you should reset the Flash movie to where it is ready to accept a new click (Probably after say 1 seconde after issueing the FSCommand). This is because RR does NOT reload NOR restart the flash movie.. it just lets it run by itself and responds to any FSCommands issued. You should check the Sample.fla file included with the Brushmetal skin for an example..

    Other than that it looks good..

    Yeah the second is overkill I just thur that in there. The reason why I like the last one more then the first is because I resembles the real audi mmi system much better. Here a link to a demo of the system, I think you'll understand what I mean.

    @guino, thanks for the info, I'll look at the Brushmetal skin example.

    i think that when you klick on the menu...the "pointer" should jump straight to the selected item instead of "scrolling" though them all and stopping on the seleced one...takes too much time and will be annoying
