    MoonShiner and theheel, you only need to replace the current clock.swf with a new one downloaded from Dinasty's site. Do not remove ore replace car_logo.jpg.

    However, Dinasty's site is currently down or something. I can't download any of the stuff.

    In the mean time, you can use RR's logo if you don't want the Toyota logo. Read the bottom of menu.skin and menu2.skin for instructions.

    You can also try the spinning logo but that might look out of place.

    (Or you can just make your own logo, resize it to the same size as car_logo.jpg and replace car_logo.jpg with it).

    Is there any way that you can make it so that after about 30 secs or so it changes to different screen that has only menu up on top (where it is now), volume (also where it is) and Exit (change to lower right corner) and in the middle has the song artist / title with the song info (time remaining, kbps, etc) underneath it, along with a digital clock and below that the date... Of course it would only go to this screen if and only if you are not in any proprietary skins such as video or gps or so... I made a Photoshop hack (and when I say hack, i mean hack, because my Photoshop skills aren't so great so you'll have o forgive me for making your awesome skin look like crap; but you will get the idea of what I mean) of this but have no way to host it (I can email it you if you provide me an email address). This is just so that you dont have all the distractions while driving (Say if you wanted to know what time it is, right now you'd have to look at the small print in the very right upper corner...)

    Also related to that whole "if a cop stops you and sees something that can play video while driving" thing; if all thats on the screen is the time, the date, volume controls and a menu and exit button, they really can't say anything. After that it's up to the driver to use his common sense and not watch a video while driving...

    You're right, it was Moto. Being new to graphics as well as skinning, I downloaded The Gimp and used that to manually edit all the relevant jpegs (replace "Video" with "XM"). That was a fair amount of work, but everything looks pretty good. It then occurred to me there must be a reason why the skinners usually also make a PSD file available. I opened your PSD for the 800x480 skin with The Gimp and voila it appeared. I assume that one should just edit the appropriate layers in the PSD rather than editing every jpeg like I did? If so, is there a PSD available for the 800x600 skin?

    This is kind of fun, but it sure has a big learning curve.

    I believe they are pulled from the weather folder in the RR directory. C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Weather if you did the typical install.

    First off - excellent skin. I came over to RR from MediaCar after being unhappy with a few little things, and this skin just wrapped it all up very nicely.

    Question about the search function. I apologize - I know this has been beaten to death, but I searched and didn't find any answers. I like very much the way the search function works by default (finds the next file with that string). Unfortunately, I load a rather large playlist, and it will only search the songs below the highlighted song. If it does not find the string, it will move the highlight to the next song down. Is there any way to have it start from the beginning of the list again?

    Thanks!

    When I browse by album, I notice that when I scroll through the list the selected album does not display its album cover. Is this a but in the skin or is it a RoadRunner problem?

    There has been a fair amount of discussion of this both in this thread and in this one: Album Art - How It Show It?
