DX-210 SKIN

DX-210

DX-210, for RadioSure v2.1.969, is a “tabletop” receiver, with “hand-held” remote control, for serious Internet radio enthusiasts. Designed with emphasis on utility, the receiver dimensions of 800px(W) x 540px(H) provide for relative ease of station search and selection, display of most texts without truncation, and built-in screening of program images (where available). It features an attractive brushed aluminum front panel with grey steel enclosure, and a logical control layout that simplifies operation.

Thanks to Admin at The BestWare Studio for allowing our adaptation of buttons from the Standard skin for use in the DX-200 Series.

Regards,
Mike Frandsen

  1. Very nice indeed! Thanks! Two minor points:
    1. I was under the impression that the cover art would show up in the right-hand DX-210 Digital window. But sadly it does not.
    2. It would be very nice to be able to change the station list colour. Green on black is not my cup of tea. 😉

  2. He, he! I also wondered about the word ‘Static’! It said Antal in my Swedish translation. I could not find the word Static in the English language file. LOL! It should say Stations found: so this text was indeed truncated in spite of the large window. Please fix! Thanks! As I said, it is a lovely skin! Now I see that Playing (time) also needs a wee bit more space.
    Looking forward to the next version! :-)

  3. The truncated text problem disappeared when I connected my new monitor just now. But still not OK when I connect my wife’s monitor. :-)

  4. @Leif:

    Please read the “Please_Read_Me_First.txt” file that accompanies the download.

    The problems that you have encountered are due to characteristics of the RadioSure software, not errors in any of the skins. The .txt file explains what to do to resolve these issues.

    To fix truncated annunciators, simply close RadioSure and reopen it once after changing skins.

    The cover art position cannot be set by skin parameters. I wish it could be. Perhaps this will change in future releases of RadioSure. For now, you just need to drag the image to center it in the display window. This, too, is explained in the Read_Me text.

    As for the station list colors, they are intended to simulate a DOS monochrome display. You can change either the text color or the background color, or both, by editing RadioSure\Skins\DX-210\skin.rsn.

    Thank you for underscoring these issues. I have done everything possible to address them, given the current state of the software development, over which I have no control.

    PS: Thanks for your nice comments. I appreciate that you like DX-210. Although it looks very simple as compared to the prettier skins, I invested more time than you can imagine to make it compatible with both Windows XP and Windows Vista. Because Microsoft has a problem with consistency across Windows versions, compatibility does not happen automatically.

  6. Thanks, Mike! My bad! All clear now (except how to change to colour of the text, but I’ll ask a friend how to fix this :)

  7. @Leif:

    In DX-210.rsn\skin.rsn, scoll to find ….

    Don’t edit anything but the four colors.

    is the color of non-selected text.

    is the background color behind the non-selected text.

    is the color of selected text.

    is the background color behind the selected text.

    Each of these color specifications is comprised of four values; each value is in the range of 0 to 255.

    The first value refers to Alpha (transparency). 0 means completely transparent (invisible); 255 means non-transparent (solid color). Anything in-between 0 and 255 is a degree of transparency.

    The second through fourth values are the Red, Green and Blue saturation (intensity) values, respectively. 0 means none; 255 means maximum saturation.

    You can experiment freely with the colors until you find a combination that you like, keeping in mind that black is comprised of no colors (0,0,0), while white is comprised of all colors at full intensity (255,255,255).

    I hope this helps.

    Let’s try this again.

    In DX-210.rsn\skin.rsn, scoll to find the “List” specification.

    Don’t edit anything but the four colors.

    “TextColor” is the color of non-selected text.

    “BkColor” is the background color behind the non-selected text.

    “HighLightTextColor” is the color of selected text.

    “HighLightColor” is the background color behind the selected text.

    Each of these color specifications is comprised of four values; each value is in the range of 0 to 255.

    The first value refers to Alpha (transparency). 0 means completely transparent (invisible); 255 means non-transparent (solid color). Anything in-between 0 and 255 is a degree of transparency.

    The second through fourth values are the Red, Green and Blue saturation (intensity) values, respectively. 0 means none; 255 means maximum saturation.

  10. Hey ya Mike, I love this skin bud it works excellent on all my puters (different OS’s) I actually modded it abit to give it a wood tone effect to match one of my desktops. Would it be ok with you if I uploaded it for others to use (free) if give you full credit? Either way thanks again for the great work!

  11. @Valk:

    Be sure to edit lines 2 and 5 of skin.rsn and skin2.rsn to credit yourself for any modifications. Thanks.

    –Mike

    Thanx,
    Gary
