Hahaha That was me! and I still don't like them, but I take exception to your use of the word "complained" - in the context of those posts I was NOT complaining, I was commenting constructively and, I think I was congratulatory about your efforts also. I think your being a bit too precious! Fancy remembering that after all this time?

Thanks guys. I just replaced the three ICO files in the MSZ file with the larger icons and called it Vitreous2.

bomb_16
half_star_16
star_16

I've been away from tweaking MM for a while now, and needed a bit of a refresher. :)

IMO nohitter's stars look way better than the ones in your second screenshot.

Anyway it's fairly simple to customize that.
Just create an Icon folder inside your Mediamonkey folder.

Ah yes sorry it wasn't you.

anyway it's my opinion that the smaller stars are much more visually attractive. And the click-able area is the same, so it has no effect on the functionality.

??? Not sure why you thought it was me that complained, but thanks for the link. I'll see if i can change them to the larger ones provided in that thread. I didn't realize that the tiny stars were only in the Vitreous skin.

Here's a comparison of how they look on my screen compared to a different machine running v3.2 and a different skin.

Try the pulse skin.
I made the stars icons bigger there! :P

Yes, its based on the icons I'm using. You already complained about them a long time ago when I first made this skin:

IMO the smaller stars are much more visually attractive than using a larger set of stars.

Is there some reason why the rating stars are so much smaller than they were on v3?
