  2. Hi KoTix, I like all your work on this platform S100, making it more "alive" than it was intended to be.
    Is it possible to know what software you are using to modify the position of the "clickable" icons ? it's amazing !!

    1. I'm not replacing or adding any new string, the skin will use the default strings so for every language there will be standard strings without any translation problems.

  16. Hi Kotix,
    you helped me last summer with skinning of my S100, back when you were on Android. And now I see you're back! GREAT!!! Best news of this year!

    I love the Apple skin you're making, and when you're done with it I'll be the 1st to buy it. I have only made some small modifications myself but I know very well how much time and patience are needed to make a great-looking and functional skin, so I belive you're doing right to ask for some recompensation.

    If there's anything I can help you with, just tell me and I'll do the best I can.

    Again, THANX for returning to WinCE!!!!

    BRG,
    Marko

    1. Tnx for your nice words :)
      There is a lot of to do on this new skin but i hope for about january/febrary to make a first release.
      In the while i'll release a new skin pack with some new nice features in the skintool (fake id201 and hard button mod to launch music player from "Mute" or any other button), possibility to replace Opera Mini with Opera10 and maybe other stuff..
      So keep in touch for a Christmas small gift :)

    1. Temp will be shown in home screen :p

  18. I think that the top left hand text "MENU" "SETTINGS" and other menus should be able to be different colors. Audi's have red interfaces and lights and it should match. Other peoples interiors are blue like you already have and they would match. It would make the skin merge better with all cars. I did not like my default S100 skin because it was orange and all the menus were different colors and my dash lights are red.

    1. To make colors changable would need me to make a skin for each color... Maybe a different color forma each section would be easyer andò more flexible?

      Delete
    2. That is what most of these units are like from factor and it is annoying. I hate having one menu orange, then the radio menu is green, my cd menu is blue, etc...

      I think if you just changed the colors to the 3 primary colors people could purchase what color they wanted. That way you do not have to do every color.

      Delete
    3. OK then.. Bit thirst i'll finish the skin with these default colora and maybe lateral i'll do it in red style.

  19. I'm looking forward for this skin. Thanks KoTiX for your work and support. I think it will be no issue to get paid for this skin. If everything pays a bit ....

  20. Happy New Year KoTiX...
    New icons are perfect... I like the size and the colors of them...
    Great work... Keep walking!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think the menu and time feature on the far right should be on the left. Or can you make it changeable? This way people who are right hand drive can have it on the right and people who are left hand drive can have it on the left.

  22. Dear Kotix,

    This skin is great and looking forward to see on my S100... I have a question for you... I wonder if we can use tomtom maps on our WinCe based devices?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can use an old version of TomTom for wince or use igo (primo) but selecting TomTom maps available for it.

  23. Dear Kotix,

    I really love this skin. Are there any tutorials we could follow to start making new skins? I'd like to have a try.

    Thanks ;)

    1. No tutorials, Photoshop, an XML editor and a lot of patience..

  24. Hi Kotix,

    Is there any possibility to run a different browser on Wince devices or a media player for youtube videos... I just bought a wifi adapter for my C230 S100 and I connected my device successfully to my home network but I couldn't run youtube videos on the screen... Youtube videos are not compatible with Opera mini and default media player I guess. Maybe you can find a solution in your new skin pack for these issues.

    3. What a great news, I'm waiting for your new skinpack before flashing the new firmware.
      Will donate (or pay) of course ;-)

      Delete
    4. The new skinpack will not include the Carplay skin because it will be finished by the end of february.
      BTW there will be some new stuff, features, fixes and so on.

  25. Hi Kotix, this Apple Skin , will it be included in the 2015 Skinpack you have out now already, or is it an extra pack to pay?
    Meaning, if I support and buy the skinpack 2015 now, will it be updated with the apple skin later when its done?

    Thanks for the info
    Lars

    1. No, it will be sold separately as a new pack.

    2. Ok, no problem, like your work, had the change to test an older Skin package and it was working and looking quite nicely.
      Gonna purchase the current package and hope that the Apple skin isn't that expensive then ;-) .

    3. Hi

      It's amazing
      I have one question the audio player see folders from usb or all songs it's together?

      Thanks

      Delete
    4. That doesn't depend on the skin you use but on the firmware version and on the kind of player You use.
      With nitrogen you can browse by folder.
