WM6/Crossbow: No plugins/Octro

Done by myself...

Update!:
- Changed Color scheme so that it is easier to read
- Made version for Octro users



I'm also adding a newer version with the Octro IM client built in (see below the Mail/SMS/Voicemail line) to show status/incoming messages.

c'mon, you haven't learned Homescreen basics yet?

You put both files under \Application Data\Home

Then select Crossbow under Start --> Settings--> Home Screen

OK, feeling really dumb now, but have to ask.

I do not have that directory under my Application Data, So I did create it and place the files there, but I have no Home Screen Options under settings in my Current ROM. Am I missing something that I have not exposed or loaded yet?

Edit: Do we need to have something like Wisbar 2 Advanced to do this stuff?

Yup I noticed that too...

I completely re-vamped the color scheme now as to avoid that problem. I also added a Red highlight for item-selection, which I find more eye catching.

See 1st post for updated file.

Hey Malatesta...i don't suppose you'd be willing to make it for portrait phones...would ya? i hate to keep preaching the same tune lol, but i hope there are other portrait users here as well. And I have yet to find any portrait homescreens that have support for the Octro plugin I would love to have a facade homescreen with Octro. Maybe i'll have to learn how to do this myself

Yeah, I'm definitely not taking requests...too much work, lol. Sorry.

The good news is the reason why I made the landscape is b/c there are a few portrait ones out there already. Here is a nice one just released last week:

http://www.modaco.com/Windows-Mobile...5-t252409.html

as far as octro, the plugin is one line of code. You just substitute one line for another, or squeeze it in somewhere. I highly encourage you to play with the .xml as it is not hard and much more satisfying.
