skinning
« on: November 15, 2011, 05:46:10 PM »
hi steve,

before a lot of plugins are comming, is it possible to make the existing screens complete ?

i play a bit with the audioplayer and the USB radio, and miss a lot.

Audioplayer:
in the 5 line list i want to show also the genre of every titel..._root.genre1----_root.genre5.
the logic therefore is the freeice.exe
also i miss the "Circularlist" function.

USB Radio Silabs:
i miss the STEREO indicator, a GENRE output, a TA and a AF button/switch..and the logic for showing the station pic by frequence. also the possibility for a keypad.

i want to use the media theme screens only for Audio.
the future should bring five virtual playlists with add, edit and delete functions.

the videopart should therefore split for an own themenpart. with browser, player and a bigger preview window.

btw.
is it possible to load the name and adress of the playing audiofile ?
with the information TRACKNAME i cant readout whats all written in the ID3 tag.
   

regards

Hi GF_ler, i've split this post into a new topic for a couple of reasons.

starting to build plugings whilst FI is still being developed is a great idea, keeps the ball rolling.

adding the extra bits like the stereo indicator, i would guess can be added to the skin, this is where it all comes down to being custom, some what more added, some want less. you can add as much or as little to your skin as you want.

part of your post is requesting features that arent yet built into FI, (5 virtual playlists) which should be in the feature request part of the forum. I believe its all listed there, so for this you will have to be patient.

Hi fella,

sorry for the lack of updates. I am still working on FI and will look into adding the requested things. Alpha 10 will see a big change on how things are done and look. Dont want to say anymore until it's completed.

:-) it will change the whole look / operation .......

Well,there is a thread about that skin at mp3car.com.
This thread is over 90 sites long.
I have searched all these sites about a link to that swi-file you need.......SORRY,no luck :'( :'(
So I think we have to wait what Steve says.
But hey-GenesisPure is a nice skin,too

cheers

I do have alot of swi files I think for this. Each screen has it's own file rather than in FI it just uses one. :-)

I'm looking forward to getting all the core stable so I can get to releasing a few more skins...... which is really what I enjoy dong the most.
