    Brushed Metal Skin (the 2nd)

    Hi again,

    some weeks ago I posted my version of a brushed metal skin.
    The Skin is based on the original Mediacar Skin, but has new buttons and a new main menu. I wanted to have a simply but stylisch looking menu, without thousands of buttons.

    Thanks to tolisn for sending me his GPS-Skin for RR and Freedrive and giving the Ok to modify it. Here is the result:







    How do ya like it?

    Hi liquid_smoke,

    yes, I got your email with the psd files. Tried them out and decided to use my own graphics. Thanks a lot for sending them, I hope you are not dissapointed that I didn't use them, but personaly I like my brushed metal more.
    What do you think about the blue glossy buttons? Took me quite a while, and after i finished i was not really sure if i still like it. ;-)

    thats cool,
    i like the blue gloss, much better than before. Ive actually been playing with the idea for a few weeks to use blue as the on state for my buttons instead of red. Still not sure though as i would have to redo a lot.
    Dont get me wrong though, i like the metal too, i just think the grain needs to be less noticeable.
    overall very nice skin though.

    oh, one thing i might offer as a suggestion. Instead of making the text on the buttons on the main screen in photoshop, use labels in RR. That way the button can be changed in 2 sec. Depending on how much work you've already got done you could use labels in the whole skin.
