RockCar Front End Update 0.0.0.26 800x480 Skin Added
See updated download on post #8
New 800x480 and 800x600 skin added. This Canvas skin shows more of the flexibility of the skin system. While having a minimal look, the skin background and colors can easily be changed. All the buttons and text in this skin are drawn by the system and the background is the only image.
The 800x480 skin is set by default in this install, but you can easily switch to another skin by changing the CurrentState.xml file or change the look of the current skin by changing it's Skin.xml file.
More performance changes for media load and screen updating has been added.
