    aero

    downloadaeroBeta

    inspired a little by windows longhorn/vista... well the black glassy bits anyway. i wanted to keep it clean, functional, and somewhat minimal.

    to toggle between gps small and gps big, just press the gps button again. simple huh.

    visualisations at the moment are on permanently (double pipe in .skin files) to turn off you will have to edit the .skins. sorry, will try and tidy this up for final release. there isnt much work to do to disable visu's and then just have it triggered as per normal by the visu button. i just wanted to have them on all the time so thats the way i did it.... you can toggle between small visu and big visu by pressing.. you guessed it.. the visuals button on the music screen!

    the visu avs preset used in the screen shots is included in the .rar package.

    required fonts are included too.. but that whole top area is free of indicators or any other graphics so it can be customised easily just by changing label codes in the .skin

    thats about it. let me know if it works

    done:
    gps (mapmonkey)
    music
    video
    phoco
    cdrip
    www

    still to do:

    radio
    dvd (powerdvd)
    weather
    app launcher
    night version


    home


    shutdown



    gps


    gps big

    soon... next weekend.. 70% of the artwork is done, just need to .jpg it and modify my .skin files and it'll be ready. doing a night version too with a carbon fiber background (thanks to craigus for his carbon fiber bits!)

    i havent tried it in the car yet so i'll give it a test drive today and see if it needs any major modifications too. (im not sure the button labels are big enough to see easily while driving - but they look so much neater when they are a little bit smaller..)

    still to do are:
    CDRip
    DVD
    Weather
    Radio

    but the nature of the layout makes it quick to add extra skins.. just change some button labels, move some up and down buttons.. voila new page!

    thanks for the comments


    edit:

    im looking for a font like this: (its called dot matrix two extended)



    cant find it anywhere to download (without having to pay $50 for it!) might have to make it myself. fun fun fun.

    yeh i'd already thought of the GPS indicator on the button, as well as a track progress indicator on top of the music button.. dont want it to get too messy though.. its meant to be a clean skin!
