    Your priority order looks good to me. Let me know what steps are required and I may tackle the 6x8 portrait mode.

    Right folks,

    I have made a start on the 1024 x 768 version, and have been backwards and forwards fixing things from the original concept ! I have come to the conclusion that it will be easier to develop each screen skin without using the INC files. This will give a lot more users the ability to tweak the skins when developed, so I am re-doing the skins in a more rigid way, to make it easier next time round.

    One problem I can't get round until Guino gets the GDI+ stuff integrated is the bleedover when you put an indicator over the transparent part of the image like so


    So I thought I would re-design the frame layout, and so have come up with this. There is less transparency overall on the screen, but it gives a more OEM style to the skin.


    There is a lot of work getting the initial screen designs out so bear with me. These skins will also be available for editing using pRoFiT's skin editor (a wonderful tool).

    As ever any suggestions of things you like dislike or hate would be most welcome before I get too far in !

    cheers guys

    Excellent News !

    Guino has managed to get a lot of the GDI+ integration working in the latest BETA release of RoadRunner. This cures the transparency problem.

    Thanks Guino for a truly awesome development.
