    with that collage thing, I think he ment for there to be a distinct frame around the viewer to seperate it from the background image, otherwise some images over some others will look like there togeather & well.... the collage look

    I don't want you to do a sample yet at my resolution, thanks for the offer though... I'll play a bit more with this & see how I can do with it...

    Hi guys,

    I can't believe it's all fully working ? Any further updates, bugs etc.

    My hard disk is playing up in the car again. I think I'll need Santa to provide me with a new one hopefully from the sales !

    I still haven't found time to tackle the Phoco skin. I'll look into it over Xmas and see what I can do.

    cheers

    I like the skin, however it won't work at 640x480, which is what I have to use. See attached....

    Hi chevyn8,

    this skin was a development of a concept prompted by Guino. It uses the IMG command to build the buttons as overlays. This leaves the background image free to change, and I have provided a buttons to do that. Using the IMG command also gives me the opportunity to "move" the button bar from the top of the skin to the bottom, to give users more flexibility.

    Thats the upside, the downside is that for every IMG command you need to specify the x,y placment and x,y size of the image, and these are all designed around an 800 x 600 skin size.

    I could look at how easy it would be to change, but I think its likely to be a lot of work!

    With the lack of feedback I have had on the skin, I don't know how much further the concept can be taken. I had originally hoped that this approach would be quicker loading screens for my poor old MII 1Gig CarPC, but it has not proved to be.

    Can you not change your screen to run at 800 x 600 ? 640 x 480 is not the greatest definition.

    Looking at the image, you haven't installed the Greek Diner font, and you don't have Webdings installed either.

    cheers

    The screen only looks good at 640x480...on a 7 inch screen that res looks perfect. The screen has to convert 800x600 and it does it very poorly. I didn't bother installing any extra fonts for this skin until it looks correct.
    thanks,

    hey man, I love this & wish I could use it....I wish I could but I have an odd resolution..... I think what youv'e done here is amazing though.... I did dig around to try to figure everything out, but it's a bit involved & I don't have much extra time to play with this..... & I couldn't figure it out enough to change it to my res.... I really apreciate the offers of help youve given... if I ever have the time to get deeper into this, I'll hit you up for sure.....

    this is an awsome concept..... someday I'd love to learn how to use this....

    Hi Turbocad6,

    I will have a look and replace the dimension settings for all the image commands to DEF's and then add them to the Ypos.txt file. What resolution are you looking at ? chevyn8 wants a 640 x 480 skin, I seem to remember you were looking at a 1024 x 768 skin !

    If I get a chance over the next few days, I'll make a start and post up the results.

    Cheers

    yeah, but my problem is, it's not 1024X768 that I use....

    my screen is in portrait mode, so I run it at 768X1024.... so anything done here would be useless to anyone else... which is why I wouldn't want to request your doing this... if it was a more standard config that may be useful for others too, that would be different... my screen is sideways like this..

    But on the flip side, what a nice install !
