    I blacked out the LCD background on my Alpine Skin - So much sharper! (pics inside)

    I think this looks a lot sharper than the red checkered. I also changed the eject button into another search button.

    Its not the cards you're dealt, its how you play the hand!

    Same font that Alpine came with. I'd have to look at what it is when I get home

    haha... that means you probably haven't seen the alpine skin with the "INTENDED" look..

    It uses the lcd2.ttf font... from your screen shot and your statement, it's easy to see why you didn't like the "dotted" background -- it was just meant to use with the LCD font which is also Dotted in simulating dotted-grid LCD screen. I'd suggest installing the font and trying the original skin again (just to see what it looks like)... but there's nothing wrong with using a customized skin..

    I like the original look of the skin but I do have readability issues in daylight conditions. Blacking out the background does help and I changed fonts for the track listing to something more clear.

    Oh, weird. I just scrolled up and realized the font on my screen shot. Where did that come from? I have always used the LCD font. I can't begin to explain where the font above came from. However, I like it. I intend to figure out where it came from and start using it. I just loaded RR again and got this



    Just like I always have. Yeah Guino I realize that the LCD theme was the intended look, but I still personally liked it better blacked out. Actually, I like it better blacked out w/ the above font.
