    Thumbs up CFX_Blue 800x600 - KL

    Thanks for the Skin "b8bboi"
    Well...the original of this skin was 800x480:it doesn't cover for the resolution of 800x600, so i'm willing to spend some time and re-edit the skin to 800x600. Please Appreciate the time and effort that I've put in. ~ KL

    HERE IT IS!: CFX_Blue_800x600

    Correct me if I'm wrong but can't you simply change the general.ini file in the root of that particular skin's folder? I did that with CFX and it works perfectly. No need to do any other editing.

    yes you can certainly edit the screen size in general.ini. IIRC, RR uses fast-resizing, though so you may have artifacts. If someone takes the time to resize all images in an image editing application like Photoshop and then edit the .skin files manually, it certainly would look a little better (less artifacts).

    what artifacts are you noticeing, can you post some screenshots of these said artifacts? I too made my skin at 800x480 and i think i stare at those graphics in PS and RR far more than anyone else and i havent noticed any reduction in quality because of the image resize. Then also take into account, the skins ultimately ends up in your car on a 7in screen with a touchscreen overlay, running at 800x600. Then add to the fact that unless you have the source files (in your case i believe you do, but ive seen cases of people who dont) you make the image quality worse by compressing the files twice.

    just seems like a huge waste of time.

    liquid_smoke, he tries to go from 480 to 600 so there should be some small artifacts. They're certainly not noticable in your skin because it's mainly black but in my skin, I do notice some small artifacts when stretching from 480 to 600.

    Same here. That's why I did the mazda 6 skin "pre-stretched" to 800X600. I started out skinning it at 800X480 (which was a lot easier) but I noticed some horizontal lines and breaks on the round objects/buttons. IMO, on a 7in screen, it's not worth the trouble... just let RR do the resizing.

    the biggest reason I re-edited the skin,it's because i tried changing the size thru general.ini, and it did not work....so i got sick of lookin for other skins, and i loved the CFX so i just remodified it

    djkl407, how did it not work for you? It works fine for all of us. All you do is change line 4 in general.ini from

    ShowHeight=480

    to

    ShowHeight=600

    You probably accidentally changed the OriginalHeight to 600. Leave that to 480 and just change the ShowHeight to 600.
