Thanks for releasing the new Igo Skin editor 1.1.

Now I can open the problematic files, although the opening process is not smooth, it takes a few ENTER clicks before the file opens.

Thanks any way it is a graet help though.

Now for my other question please.
Is there a way to compile a skin?
Or, can you give me a clue, how can I start searching for an answer?

Thanks again.

I am using this editor to create skins for iGo8 and it very helpfull!

However I have encountered a strange problem.
When I am trying to open few files of the data.zip from the new Nav N Go iGO 8 R3 series - v8.3.4.102680 (Aug 13 2009), the Skin editor stops responding without opening the files.
The link for the new Nav N Go iGO 8 is:
http://forum.ppcwarez.org/viewtopic.php?f=255&t=53127.
The problematic files are:
navigatemap_480_272.ui and setting_480_272.ui
How can I resolve the problem?

Another question please.
Is there a way to compile a skin (SkinName.zip), so it still functions as a skin within iGo8.

Thank you very much.

I've never compiled a skin...but it seems that all you need to do is add your skin file to a zip, maybe using WinZip...you should ask this question to people who release new skins...

it is all about creating a zip file with folders structure and your template files...

but really I don't know

Do you mean the error messages during loading?

maybe I can add them to a popup window at the end of the loading operation...but this will come up in a next release...

the messages are there to tell you where it encountred problems on loading the skin, how many messages window do you receive?

Hello-

I would love to try your software but it seems that I am getting an error on download.  I think the links may be broken.  The error is:

This ID doesn't exist!

Thanks!

Hi there,

I've been developing my own Amigo skin and just now discovered your great app. I've been doing all of the editing in notepad, and now that I find this, I feel foolish. So, thank you for making this program.

I do have a question. I have been using an app called MioMap-IGO BMP Tool to uncompress and compress my BMP files. It works great, although it can't uncompress all of the BMP's for some reason. Your app on the other hand can obviously uncompress/read the files because you can display them. The only problem is, your app doesn't allow the saving of these files. I have one background images in particular I really need to edit, but I cannot. Your app shows the image perfectly. Do you know of any app that I can use to uncompress these stubborn BMP files? Is there an easy way for you to add this functionality to your app? I am to the point where I might just take a screen shot of the BMP while your app displays it. This would mean that I lose all of the alpha layer information though. Any assistance you can provide me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi,

Thanks for your feedback, I'll try to add a function to save particular graphics to disk so then you can edit them, I'm really busy so it will take some time...keep in contact to know how it is going and also to remind me about this feature

Wow, great response time. (...and attitude!   ) Thank you. I guess in the meantime, I'll resort to screen captures. It is really refreshing to come across a program author so willing include features that his/her audience suggests.

As long as you are taking requests:
1. Resolution converter (doesn't have to include resizing BMP's, just rescaling all of the .ui's)
iGoSkinWizard allows you to do this but doesn't let you see the finished product like your program can. This would allow the user to tweak the code before converting everything only to find everything messed up. A simple set of conversion rules can accomplish this.
2. Compatibility with Amigo
I actually don't know how compatible your program is with Amigo .ui files, but I do know for sure that Igo and Amigo do have slightly different command sets.

I, of course, am just speaking out loud as to what I would like. I know you have your own direction and intentions for this program. So feel free to ignore me if I annoy you.

Thank you for all the hard work, and I'll be keeping tabs on this forum for updates.
