    Talking Please help me make the perfect skin for my new software

    I just made a 'second draft' of my carputer software.... I posted a thread in the general section but ill continue it here.




    Here is the Latest Version of what I have done: What does everyone think? Better? Not? Too Blurry? Please let me know!!

    and here is an example of a darker skin:

    Please give me all your opinions about it.

    I chose red because it seems to be the easiest color to see on my lcd when theres sun blaring at it. and the white also.

    I will make a DARKER skin with the same model for when its dark out, a simple button in the menu will toggle this skin..

    As i said in the previous thread, everthing will extremely fast, and ill try to keep loading times at a minimum.

    In this picture, does anyone see any defects/problems with this skin which I can fix right now before adding the menu screens etc? I made a skin before for the first version, and I found it unuseful to have all the buttons on the same screen. Everything was too cluttered and too hard to press a button when driving. With this setup the most used buttons are big and easy to find. The menu will bring out 6 Buttons, probably with a 'back' and 'forward' button to change the buttons. for example on the first menu ill have apps, gps, pics etc, and on the second ill have settings etc. That way everything will be big and easy to click on, touchscreen friendly.


    If anyone has any comments or suggestions, please dont be shy!!!!

    Thanks!!

    Sorry man, skins take forever to make. I wish I could get someone interested in developing a new skin for me.
    Spent all my money on carputers now I have to work a real job.

    its not completed yet, I dont want to get too carried away and work on something for a long time for nothing....

    this here is a BASIC idea of what everything would look like.... ill have to add the menu screen, buttondown's, the scrollbar, etc etc....


    I just want to see everyones feel with the red and the fonts and the butons...

    well the darker skin was a very fast implementation, i just added a layer on top of everything that makes everything darker... I wouldnt want to spend more time for a night skin, I think this night skin is OK because It wont be bright and it will be very easy to implement.


    Thanks again
