Here's the latest screenshot of the main window. Dark red is unpressed / off and orange is pressed / on.

What do you think of the cbuttons? appbuttons?

I'm with Dragon Ninja, the orange seems to be a bit out of place, I'd try to make it a bit redder, the orange in the titlebar is fine, though. In sum: It's very good!

Hmm... how did you get a pressed state for the bottom right button?

There isn't a pressed state in reality but I created on by accident in my .psp file.

What do people think of the lcd - is it too crowded?

That's what I thought.
About the orange... It's fine if it's used for the pressed state, as it is only seen a moment, but for buttons with active/inactive state I think you should use a redder tone (dark red when inactive, orange when pressed, bright red when active). Of course, you're free to use whatever colour you like, and the skin is great so far, I just feel it would be even better this way. The lcd isn't crowded at all. What about putting the labels inside the buttons and not under them?

sorry if I offended you but thats what I learned in 8th grade (talking about the germans,-not rammstein-. sorry it wasn't clear when I switched topics). mebby my teacher said it wrong, maybe i was not paying attention (I was poor at the time) and staring at her hooters/ass. the world will never know

It says DAIDV? Then I would change it too, to OAIDV.

To do that I'd have to change it to DAIDV first

As you can see all is done except appbuttons, animations for volbal, and easteregg. Something must has have seriously disturbed me, perhaps DanG's first steps into airbrushing, coz I redid some of the frame and the whole LCD.

Sehr gut!

I see you've changed the orange... but the orange in the titlebar looked good (to me) over that dark background. I would take the red for the buttons and the orange for the titlebar (when active).

Oh, my god... I only talk about this damned orange thing... forget it, I'm just a bored man, do whatever you want

The skin looks great. But I think the problem with the lights (the ones that used to be orange), and to a lesser extent with the whole cbuttons and shufrep is that they are kind of "cartoonish", so to speak, while the rest of the metal plate is quite "realistic". The metal plate is very rendered and textured, but the buttons on it are much less so - black outlines, slightly textured inside, and bright monochrome light - and so don't match too much, and detract from the overall look.

If you could slightly illuminate the pixels around the lights, to make them glow a little, they would probably look better.

As it looks now, it's way to dark for a skin - I have to put my face up right next to the screen to see it. But a part of that is because it is on a white background.

The potential of this skin, nevertheless, is huge.

OK, personnally I prefer the red to the orange.

There is already one red drop shadow - I'll just add more until it really glows

And I've got a light blue desktop and it looks fine on that.

It's now called text2.bmp. It's not legible enough. Thanks for the effort - you're still getting credit in the readme, and feel free to add your input wherever you like.

Nothing much sorry. I'm "revising" (read: learn the whole course from scratch for the first time) Latin. Although, I have worked out the percentages for the volume and balance bars and it'll only take 30mins to animate them.

I've thought about the EQ and got a pretty good idea for it. Progress soon I hope. German's this week too.

*cough* you didn't get this from me, alright, guv'nor *cough*

Wish me luck in my horrid Latin poetry exam tomorrow. "Euryalus rolled in death, and blood went over his beautiful limbs and his neck having fallen down lay on his shoulders", "We must be dearing with our right hand", "So that no band of men may attack us from the rear..." [bearing in mind it's a poem about two gay soldiers]
