    I'm currently just working on bugfixes at the moment, and a few feature that don't need skins to change, I want it to stabilize a little.

    I've written a skinner application recently, and I'm currently working on keyboard control. Other than that, just making it more stable for now, there's a couple of little quirks I want to iron out.

    Also I be going snowboarding for a fortnight very soon, so I won't have much time before then, and I'll have no time then

    Good news every body... the Contrast skin is nearly finnished for Carbox... screen shots soon etc how ever I can tell you its a wide screen only version... sorry you 4:3ers but its the way every thing is going.

    Sy,

    The process to skin has been much improved with the skinner app how ever I still found it fiddley to get the graphics cust right so the effects were correct...

    You'll have to let me know exactly what you mean is fiddly, to see what I can improve.

    There'll be no development for the next fortnight though, I'm off to France snowboarding for 2 weeks.

    Good Xmas, all.

    I just downloaded carbox and I've got it running on my desktop and I really like it! I've been playing around with mediacar as well, but carbox seems to do everything I'm interested in doing-and does it very nicely. Can't wait to see some more skins for this. Great job GingerPrince! Thanks for a great front end!

    Contrast Skin For Carbox Preview

    Its all most done - just the keyboard - how ever thats looking like its going to be a bit of a pain due to a possible bug ( Sy ) - How ever ... to keep you hooked heres some shots before I release it ( very soon ).

    Its based on the Contrast v2.1 skin used for ME ( or will be ) and will be simular to the Media Car version. This one will only be in wide screen though and unfortunatly as I said before due to the complex nature of putting this one together you will not be able to change the logo in the back ground... sorry.
