    Thanks for that, I have been playing with gifs instead of jpg's, and was using 95% transparency (lol)! I had the scale the wrong way around! DOH. . . . .

    I would like the subsequent menu screens to be semi transparent background buttons over the desktop, but with clear (non transparent) text over button graphics. I may be shooting too high, still, where theirs a will. . . .

    cheers

    I am just putting up a gash menu.skin at the moment, with no other screens following on. I am using exit on the button, to close rr. Now it does this, I can move forward to developing the menu screen.

    the text wont have a different transparent level than everything else, everything will be at the set levels, except for embeded applications.

    Thanks, I worked that out now, that was why I was trying to play with GIF's to see if they would help create the effect I was looking for, but no joy. The background transparent area of a GIF file acts like a window with no glass, so the objects on the desktop can be accessed, through the window frame. If the glass could be put into the window to stop this, it would open up a load more options for changing a skins look, through normal windows changes to the desktop, so newb's like me could give the impression we knew what we were doing !

    Thanks for the help though. Hows the Void skin going?

    not exactly sure i follow what your trying to do from your last reply (windows and glass). There is a clipping function in RR that will allow you to access the window behind RR as it basicly cuts a hole in the RR window. Are you using .gif files for the transparency?

    void is comeing along ok, i would say at about 97% finished.

    1% to go, can't wait.

    I want to be able to use the desktop as the background for the skin, and ideally layer over the top, track name and details only. Using Milkdrop, in desktop mode will then give a screensaver effect. The only button I want on this screen, is a clickable area the size of the screen that when clicked, activates a menuing system to do radio, tv, gps etc. The problem I have is when I make the rr screen suitably transparent, I can't get clear text on the screen as well. If I use gifs, the area of the screen that is transparent doesn't work when its clicked on, rr treats it like its clipped, so whatever is on the desktop is activated, and the menu doesn't come up. Thats why I thought EXIT_FS may work, using a transparent gif, to give a clear screen, but having exit_fs the size of the screen, and transparent so you can see through it, but when you click or touch anywhere on the screen, then get it to load the menu screen up rather than do an exit. If the command could be added in the ini file it makes it really configurable.

    ok, i see what u want to do.
    well exit fs is pretty editable. And it shouldnt be hard at all to make a button that is the size of your screen and when clicked loads whatever screen you want in RR. Its pretty late right now, but ill modify exit_fs and make a version for you. The button will not have any graphics, and ill make it 10% transparent so you'll barely see it, if at all.

    Brilliant, thanks very much. I will crack on with the skin design, only until you finally release yours though!
