Hi

I am pleased to offer 2 versions of my skin for your enjoyment (800x600, 30 March 2007 build). 8)

The resources folder in each skin has a folder with 3 fonts you will need. I have also included in the resource folder my Girder.GML file for Pandora. Each skin has 2 backgrounds, 2 splash screens and 2 exit screens for US and UK spelling (1 of each has Arcam logo's). You will just need to tailor your skin to your preferred background. I hope you like them:

nice and clean. i like it.

I have a Elo in my theater and I would be interested in replacing my MX-3000 with my 15: Elo.
I have a copy of Girder although i would like to avoid using it and hopefully be able to use xlobby RS232 features in upcoming versions :) please please please.

Can i assume you are using Girder for the theater component control??

Are you going to share this skin?

Pretty cool. If I had a touchscreen, this is one I'd be looking out for.

I'd love to see what that Pandora screen looks like when it's done.

Great job on thinking outside of the box...thanks!!!

yeah I'd like to see the Pandora screen too.

Also, if you could post your Girder files I might give that another try if I had your example to start with ;)

Good job mate!

Just when you think you have seen it all. Excellent work !. We will eventually have a section for xLobby users who want to donate skins and a section for those who would like to charge for there services to installers and system integrators who are looking for something special and tailored to there customer needs and there companys vision on layout and navigation of the xLobby GUI.

What do you do when have to do a refresh of Pandora after 3 hours?

Would OpenPandora work? You would be able to have a nice clean cropped look and OpenPandora also works with MS live Messenger.

Wes, thanks for the comments :D

Sharp_1, well i've never played Pandora longer than 3hrs so its news to me! :shock:

OpenPandora, yes i had a look at this in the past, can it display on a different screen yet, because last time i looked it wouldnt open on my second monitor which is what i would want it to do. I looked at xmovewindow (i think thats its name) but i got nowhere, i never could get my head around it. I will download it again and have a look. I have to admit that it would be ideal as it has far more shortcuts as well! :D

I like it, the buttons are perfect for a touchscreen with a very clean look to it. My touch screen is also set at 800x600 and works great for me. The problem with touch screen's is one you have one you want one in every room :D

I love seeing other peoples setup's!!!

Thanks for posting.
