    Question How to customize iGo Primo skins for screen dimensions of Galaxy S8?

    Hello.

    I'v being reading some threads regarding modification of multimode.ini and info.ini to suit the x/y dimensions of igo Primo skins for different screen sizes in different phones. I've spent a lot of time trying to do it for my Samsung Galaxy S8, but I cannot find out the right values. I don't understand the logic behind the modifications.

    I come from a Galaxy S3, where I could change the default skin to a custom one, no problem. But I cannot do it in my new Galaxy S8. Otherwise, iGo is working.

    Here's the info provided by screen size app running in my phone:

    In portrait mode
    =================
    Normal screen
    xxhdpi
    2220 x 1080px
    (740 x 360 dp)
    Navigation bar height
    144px (48 dp)
    Title bar height
    144px (48 dp)
    Status bar height
    72 px (24 dp)

    And a horizontal bar with this text:
    1080 px (360 dp)

    And a vertical bar whit this text:
    1860 px (620 dp)

    In landscape mode
    ==================
    Normal screen
    xxhdpi
    1080x2220px
    (360 x 740 dp)
    navigation bar width
    144 px (48 dp)
    title bar height
    120 px (40 dp)
    Status bar height
    72 px (24 dp)


    And a horizontal bar with this text:
    2076 px (692 dp)

    And a vertical bar whit this text:
    888 px (296 dp)


    I'd really appreciate any help on this, either some values to test, or an explanation of the logic to compute those values, or both. It's driving me crazy!

    Thanks

    Try using a NextGen program. I couldn't get Primo 2.4 working on my friend's s8 but the current NG program worked fine.

    Thanks, I already had the forS8.zip file, but it only fixes the iGo Primo standard skin for S8, nothing to do with custom skins.

    I've found resolution.zip utility in this same forum, it reports 1040_504,540_1004 (landscape and portrait modes), but these values in the info.ini file doesn't fix my problem.

    I'' keep trying and will report the solution, if I can find it out.

    You have the solution in the same post :
    To see skin you have to add in info.ini : ,720_1396,1396_720,540_1047,1047_540,720_1480,1480_720,540_1110,1110_540

    Thanks, mate. Tried those values, but it's still not working. Tried to add them at the beginning of the "supported_resolutions=" line, and also at then end, and deleting the "save" folder.

    By the way, in which post did you find those values?

    Thanks again.

    Edited:
    OK mates, solution found.

    Simply added "540_1002,1038_504," at the beginning of the "supported_resolutions=" line into the info.ini file of the skin. Working perfectly...

    supported_resolutions="540_1002,1038_504,........

    FYI, the calculations are:

    Screen size = 1080 x 2220 (in portrait mode, width=1080, height=2220)

    First value, portrait mode (540_1002):
    -------------------------------------------------

    540 = 1080/2
    1002 = (2220-72-144)/2 ( 72 is Status Bar Height and 144 is Navigation bar Height )
    This is because in portrait mode you have status bar on top and Navigation bar on bottom)

    Second value, landscape mode (1038_504):
    ----------------------------------------------------

    1038 = (2220-144)/2 (144 is Navigation bar width)
    504 = (1080-72)/2 ( 72 is Status Bar height)
    This is because in landscape mode you have status bar on top and Navigation bar IN ONE SIDE.

    Hope this helps to other S8 users.

    Regards,

    Error remains with above recommendations on post 6.... "User interface resolution [1080x2076] is not compatible skin can tot be found. Exiting application." Resolution is 2220x1080. Perhaps also need a change on sys.txt? I have uploaded both sys.txt and skin I'm using.... [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Your problem is different from mine. I can start iGo using the default skin, then I couldn't switch to a custom screen (now I can :-). But you cant's even start iGo using the defaut skin.

    Try this: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    You have to download the "for_s8.zip" file from the provided link, then copy it into the "iGO\ux" folder in your phone.

    It works in my S8.

    xalaros, application start with default skin (data) ?
    Application does not use full screen by default.
    Use ux-utility screen size from [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    You can try to add in info.ini : ,720_1396,1396_720,540_1047,1047_540,720_1480,1480_720,540_1110,1110_540

    angelz, if iGO folder is on SD and your device is not rooted, save folder can not be write.
    Put iGO folder on internal.
