Goto into controlpanel --> default.xap

Look for both DEF panel02_backing Transform and replace

                          {
                                  children
                                  [
                                     Shape
                                     {
                                         appearance Appearance
                                         {
                                             material MaxMaterial
                                             {
                                             name "InnerWall_01"
                                             }
                                             texture ImageTexture { url "Blank.bmp" }
                                         }
                                         geometry DEF panel02_backing-FACES Mesh { url "panel02_backing-FACES.xm" }
                                      }
                                  ]
                                  scale 0.96 0.96 0.96
                                  rotation -1.000000 0.004363 -0.004363 -1.571000
                                  translation -24.270000 13.50000 2.360000
                                  /*translation -24.270000 14.010000 2.360000 */
                          }


When adding pictures

The picture will not fit right in the center on the background so I had to change my canvas size from 1024x512 to 1750x512 and back 1024x512. Also one of the background will be reversed so I had to create another background with a reversed picture. Now add the the default.xap pictures in your controlpanel.xip.

Thanks guys here is a copy of the default.xap for anyone having problems. The two pictures are called blank.bmp and blankrev.bmp. Also I used two metal textures which I called metal and metalbright. When I get home after work today I'll post a copy of the controlpanel.xip.

Here the full controlpanel.xip. Kanaberra I'm trying to understand your question. Goto DEF controlpanel_backing Transform and change scale to 0.0 0.0 0.0 will work to make the controlpanel backing gone or you could change the apearrance so you could use any background you wanted.

                }  

Here are the results not so good, I think the smaller scaled setting is better.

Maybe with a dark skin it would look better.

Had to change the panel backgrounds so here is an updated screenshoot

Rapboy no luck on making the panel transparent but if I can find the how to change the picture to fit in the backing that will work. In this picture you can see the backing is clear.

In this picture I used cellwall as a replacement for logoshell. Now it like one of the pods from the mainmenu

try to replace the logoshell w/ a "transparent" cellwall.xbx or directly a fully transparent 256x256 image, it looks quite better wink.gif
& i tried on my raining sunday to fit black bg behind the audiobg exactly inside the frame by playing around w/ "scale" & "scale orientation" but successless so i gave it up... for now wink.gif

Keep it up ^^

The transparency is set by the tone of the color used in hexbe or your set transparency values.

kanaberra this maybe a stupid question, but how to make transparent bmp like cellwall.bmp? I notice with xbx viewer that black becomes a blue color, but when every I make a change the xbx viewer no longer show that blue color.
