    mostly combination of different (understand: mismatching) colors, layouts and styles. Its simply inconsistent and I dont know...disturbing.

    much better

    you better use less bevel in photoshop it is old and kitsch and put outerglow
    something matches with the blue tint.
    I suggest you remove backgrounds of icons by using lasso tool instead of wandtool which result cleaner. This blue tint is doesn't match with the layout. You better look for a color combination with right balance to expose contrast instead of choosing one of your favourite colors.
    Things are getting better

    You are on way keep us posted

    blue is the one of the bmw logo.....i have choose it only for that.
    Icons seem to be clean....i don't know how can be better.

    Next job is to make a better integration of GaroNav with my skin.

    Then i'll change MP3 player, i don't like so much this layout, but actually i don't know which layout can be better. Any suggestion??

    Where can i find a list of all "commands" of RoadRunner?

    The last screenshots are 10x better than the original.

    Here are a few suggestions:

    • The DVD option on the main screen shouldn't have DVD listed twice. (i know one of thems the icon) I would just put a picture of a CD there for the icon.
    • If you wanna stick with the blue on the MP3 screen, I would go with a solid black or dark background. The blue is getting washed out by the fading.
    • I would look at taking some of the larger icons outta the nav screen and making them smaller. ex: How many times do you use the save feature that would require that big of a button?
    • Last but not least, I would border your play, forward, back, and volume icons with a solid 1 (maybe 2) pixel color. Maybe white to match to the other part of the BMW logo.


    But hey, its your car honestly. If you like it a certain way, then keep it....I would.

    And I put up the TXT file with the RR commands for ya: http://www.sparkyserve.com/stuff/skincommands.txt

    I noticed too the twice dvd button...so, i'll change it.

    About the blue, the background is "black" too....so i have to choose a light color (white, light blue, yellow.....i don't know)

    About the GPS, the icon are not mine, that is the nav's skin....i'll work on it later.

    I did not understand your last point.

    I accept all kind of suggestion, i hope that someone will use my skin

    Thanks for the command list.

    Hello,

    I was meaning that maybe the background on the MP3 selection screen should be solid instead of the current fade that you have. Check it:



    The blue text is being washed out by the grey fading in the middle...makes it kinda hard to see.

    The last point was simply applying a border around the icons such as the volume control and play. In other words, an light outline.

    You're welcome for the suggestions and good job with your skinning abilities!

    ok, i'll look for a nice pattern for the background (i don't like simple solid background).

    Which color do you suggest instead of light blue?

    maybe better??



    I've changed only the colors, but tomorrow i'll work on the layout....i'd like to remove the 2 boxes and find a good view for songs list and play info.

    Another question: there is a way to insert in the skin a spectrum analyzer like the one of winamp??
