    @ GizmoQ Yes all the menu commands have to start with "EXIT|| or you get this funky behavior the way mine works is click menu button on the audio screen, click navi on menu and then click gps you go to gps. Pressing esc once in the gps screen takes you back to the audio screen because you were acctually in audio (because of the "EXIT||) when you went to gps.

    @Stonecoldtx the work on this skin is on hold right now the menus are causing problems in the video player screen causing the whole screen to black out. I am waiting on gunio to look at this and see if there is something that can be done to fix it or if it is just a fact of life. If it can not be fixed I am going to have to figure out how to change this skin up to make it usable without the menus.

    Is this skin still on hold? I'm still using MC2.0, but I really like the look of this one.

    I have continued work on the skin the "popup" menu will not be avalible in the video player til this issue is addressed in RR by guino or myself. It will be replaced with an exit button for now but yes it is being worked on. I have another project running also so I am trying to divide my time between the two (see sig for the other project). Have no fear this skin will be completed.

    Quick question. What font are you using for the main menu and most buttons?

    tyvm...my wife is imploring me to, not only, finish the skin myself, but also to customize it for my needs. That font will help in my endevor. I wont be releasing it to the public, as the initial work is your skin. However, it will make my wife a lot happier in my expensive carputer habit. Thanks again!! That isn't to say I wont be looking at this thread again. On the contrary. I'm subscribed to this thread and I'm looking forward to the heights you'll bring it to.

    btw...your other skin is cool too. Just not as much as a winner with the wife. That's a big part of me being able to take on the carputer project in the first place. Wife approval.

    Yeah my wife doesn't like the new one too much either lol. What custom effects are you adding to "MAS" if you don't mind me asking I am always looking for ideas. And I could slip you a psd or two to help out if you would like.

    Well...you've pretty much got everything nailed down. I've designed a GPS screen for the most part. Now that I know what font you're using I'll be using that font. Next I'll try putting together a phone skin that I'll be happy with. When/if you release one I'll probably switch over to that one and possibly customize it to my specific needs.

    Also, using what you've created I've gone ahead and customized it to my needs. I wont have a CD/DVD drive at all, so I disabled the eject button. I've also disabled the SAT and CD buttons. My "menu" screen is customized to display only GPS, Phoco, Video and Games buttons. Oh I also removed the online indicator and drive indicators on most screens. I'm still cleaning the rest up. The last thing I changed was instead of it saying "MENU", "CD" or "MP3" or whatever on each screen, I added a clock. I need to know what time it is most of the time, so having a clock on the screens I'll mainly be on was important to me.

    As I add more to the pc I'll be able to add the buttons and functionality back in. I'm still learning the skinning process. For the most part everything is very straight forward. I've been able to fabricate the GPS screen off another blank screen you were using. Anything other changes I do I'll probably just use most of your artwork to do it with.

    Here's the GPS screen I threw together. I haven't added the fonts yet. I basically just took what you had shown in the beta thread and made it. This way I could choose what I want each button to do.

    Small update for everyone. I have ordered and installed my gps reciever and am working on the gps screens. (mappoint and iguidance) I have no plans for supporting any other gps software. I appoligize if this is an inconvenience to anyone but I just don't have the resources to support everything. So far everything is working very well. Below are some psd images of the on state for both screens. I have a bit more to do on the mappoint screen. I plan on updating the download file after I can test the 07 release of RR when it comes out. Should have screengrabs of both working in RR in about two or three days.

    Looking Good.

    Have you started back on this skin?
    Wondering if you completed the other screens yet, Phoco, etc??

    I tried the previous version and it was working well but some were CFX embedded skins.

    Keep up the good work.
