Xlobby LCARS Skin - WIP comments welcom and a few questions

Postby vambo on Wed Apr 14, 2004 4:06 pm

Hi all
Been laid up sick for afew days so decided to have a play creating my frist xlobby skin. It's based on the Start Trek LCARS displays (being a bit of a sad trekie)
Would welcome any feed back (good and bad) - I've only had Xlobby for just over a week now and still finding my way round , so be gentle :)
Also got a couple of questions
1) I know this has been asked before and i understand the button-enter and button-down stuff but ow do you get the swich buttons (open, play, add) etc to stay in the cliked colour like in the default skin when they stay green
2) Is it possible to add a button to move the hilight box, i know you can move it with the arrow keys on your keyboad but i want this to work purely on a touchscreen
3) Does the news screen work?
4) How do you add website buttons to the web browser screen, i tried in the skin editor but it does zip. Is this somthing thats coming latter
5) Anyone know a good source for weather pictures for the UK, weather.com is a bit sparse outside of the USA

ok some screen grabs - these are from the working skin as of today

It is not possible to change this nor can you make other buttons which act this way. :(

as of today there is no custom switches, but its on steves list.
Any of the switches that already exist (ie. add, play, shuffle, repeat..) can be edited if you want though they need an ID to work, as you can see.

you can use a general switch and change text if you need to.

I am interested in trying this skin as I think it would be a great one for carputer. Could you please post a link for downloading it?

Thanks
