    Just Started my software.. ScreenShot..

    Well after watching everyone else having fun building their own software I thought I would start mine. Since all my stuff hasn't come in yet for my truck most stuff is going to have to wait till I have everything (XM and GPS mainly).. But here is a screen shot.. Once I'm done I'm sureI will release the source.. Most of it is built with controls I made.

    Everything is skinnable even the progressbars have an on and off image.
    The MP3 control (no engine to it so you can code your own into it or use WMP9/Winamp) holds it's own play list that is stored in a inf file for faster load times. The only thing it checks is when a song is about to display it checks the modified date and if it's the same it just displays from the inf file. It also has it's own randomizer that remember all it's played songs and never repeats the same song until the list has ended. I'm planing on adding a feature that will remember the fade/balance and EQ settings for each song and loads them when the song is playing but that will depend on your media engine you use. You can also set the transparentance of the MP3 player.

    Up and coming will be an option to display a visual in place of an image as a background but I'm not sure how that will look just yet.. Tons of ideas but no hardware to work with yet.

    BTW I'm not trying to be rude but please don't ask when the code will be released.. It's not going to be anytime soon since I can't test or code for anything yet. But I WILL release it as soon as it's ready..

    The features sound great, just needs a little work on the visual aspects.

    Sounds like a plan to me.

    If it's stuck, force it. If it breaks it needed replacing anyway
