    looks a lot better.
    The 6 buttons vs the 9 looks way cleaner. Still a tad bit washy though. Maybe you need to calibrate your monitor? The icon for Radio is almost invisible.
    whats going to go into the big box on the bottom and small one on the top bar?
    Overall its coming along better, keep working at it.

    Thanks, the big box at the bottom will have the currently playing song, and the small box at the top is for time/date. I will change the opacity of the radio logo so it is more visible. I am going to work on it more tonight.

    It's not only the radio icon, its all of them. They all just look really faded / washed out for some reason. The app's button, you can barely make out that there is any color in it.

    Right now the only icons that are not washed out are the volume icons. They are black, while the rest of the text, and icons are washed out with gray.

    Here is an example of what I mean, the Icon is not only more vivid, the text is Black, and those combined, do not make it look faded / washed out.

    (I Did not know what font you used, so I tried to get get close at least, and the background is the closest I could find, but you get the idea)

    I made the icons like that on purpose. I wanted them to faintly be noticable, but still have some sort of image there. I can just run through and change the opacity for them if it is a problem. I started working on the audio player skin. The box branching off will display album art. The gray box will hold items from the playlist. The horizontal bar at the top will have a song progress bar displaying current track position. I think I might move the progress bar inside the playlist item box, below the down arrow. What do you guys think?

    That screen is looking great! I really like it!

    I get what you mean about the icons having transparency now... didnt know that was the look you were going for. I would still suggest making the text black. This may sound really crazy, but if you squint pretty hard at your computer monitor, it gives SOMEHWHAT of an idea of what it will look like in bright sunlight in the car. (Just dont do it when someone is around, or you look like an idiot ) "Squinting" as your skin, I can see the volume controls clearly, but the text on the buttons is hard to see, and thats due to the gray on gray / low contrast.

    It is looking really good though, and cant wait to see more!

    Actually pRoFiT, I liked the 2nd one, I wouldn't give up on that idea yet! This one looks pretty kewl as well. I like the "Cross bar controls" for Vol Up/Down Previous/Next ect. Its a tried and true control on many Remote controls as well as game systems.

    Thanks for your input. I think I will change the text color so it can be read more easily. I picked the gray since that is the color on the wii interface for all text. I am trying to not stray far from the original intent of the skin (to emulate the wii's look).

    profit-
    I also like the D-pad style controls in your skin. Maybe you can integrate the entire NES controller as buttons to make it look more nintendo like. Keep up the good work.

    Pistolen, Do the buttons look like that in your photo editor. They dont look clean enough. Look at how this one looks.

    I made a circle select with a light to dark gradient fill then a circle white layer transparent and offset. edit: oh and a bezel effect pushed in alot to make it look rounder.
