Sure...I guess to some it is not really a cool factor...but it's Buddabings Now Playing Screensave modded to fit inside my info window (see gif image). Originally I thought that I would have to drop that along with the zonemap...at least I was able to retain one of them.

I should have also mentioned that I'm using the PPC/server in mimic mode. Any changes done on either (by volume control or zone/source selection) will reflect on the other...this is because of using P3rvTalk devices instead of Show/Hide events. I found this out late Friday....spent some time transfering the events from Show/Hide to P3rvTalk.

Oh and a user manual is included with the executable install.

I think it's official, Marbles is the reigning ZONE KING!! Great work on this. If I had a multizone setup, I'd be all over this one!

Thanks for the great work Marbles!
Cicero ... loving xLobby, both versions ... now just to get all the new toys ...

Updated version can be downloaded. Made a couple of changes to some of the PPC control overlays. The big change is that I've added screens (main and ppc) for using defrag's excellent xliveshout plugin. Haven't implimented his most recent updates (give me a chance...he just released the new plugin), so you will either have to wait for my next update...or go ahead, have fun and update yourself.

Have a good one.

Re: ZoneSkin4 - Updated 17/2/08 www

Been a while since last updated. View first post for new download link.

Things that have been done:
- Fixed PPC album search screens
- taken out PPC control screens and added its functions to the playback control overlay (EQ nav button, shuffle toggle and repeat toggle).
- replaced "control" button on menu "nav" overlay with a "music" button which will take user direct to album select screen. This screen will select for current source.
- gave the manual a much needed update to indicate XLiveShout, and additional screenshots to show some of the above changes.
- gave the PPC EQ overlay a little bit of an update to show the EQ parameters.

Can't think of anything else right now...it's late, and I'm getting tired.

Well I made some updates to the PPC screens. Due to an increasingly low WAF to how ZoneSkin4 flowed, I decided to make it more visual...The better half just does not understand the concept of "zones" and "sources". So I took my zonemap from the previous ZoneSkin3, cut it into three sections, and now use that to graphically select the room to listen to music in. Once a room is picked, corresponding text will show that room, then the user can select the source, and an indicator will then highlight that source selection. View image below.

An supplement document is included with the original manual to outline the changes.

Download link from first post.

If you have any questions, please ask.

Good point P3rv, maybe not a cat, but I should indicate which floorplan is being shown, like a title above the actual map, and maybe show a picture image of the room that is selected in the background of the floor plan. Then I won't here the end of it..."why would you take a picture of that room...when it is so messy!!! You idiot." :P Hey as if we all haven't heard that before. :lol:
