I'm totally lovin' ZunesSkinSlim!!!!!! I'm not skilled enough to tweak it myself so I humbly make the following requests for you to consider for your next version:
1. Having some way to see the time remaining in the track would be nice. Either clickable time to toggle between elapased and remaining or something. I like the itunes style but I realize there isn't space at either end of the song scroll bar to place the elapsed and total time at either ends.
2. A button to turn the now playing panel on and off in the player would be useful to me.
3. In the track browser window when I pick a genre and then pick an artist the genre selection stays active but the highlight color disappears unlike other skins (eg. Guilded (default skin)). This one may be a bug.
4. I'd love to see what album is playing in the player.
5. The highlight color (orange) is pretty hard to read on my monitor. I wonder if others find the same thing.

Thanks again for your fine work on this.
Cheers

1. Sure, I'll change this (do you mean in the floating player?)
2. Do you mean in the floating player? That button is already there (above the volume control)
3. That's because of the way I have the selection set up. You'll notice that I only change the font color and not the selection color. There isn't really anything I can do about it without adding a selection color (which I don't want to do)
4. I never added this because the original Zune software didn't have it. I'm not sure there's enough space for it
5. It seems fine here..

To show all the tracks fully expanded all the time, open your MediaMonkey.ini file in a text editor (notepad, etc.) -- the file is inside of C:\Program Files\MediaMonkey3. Change the ExpandAlbumsByDefault value from '0' to '1' so that it looks like this:

ExpandAlbumsByDefault=1

Save and close.

Make sure you do this while MM3 is not running.

Regarding tweaking the skin colors. What a mess that is to do! It was really a trial and error type of thing and I still didn't get it exactly the way I want it, but as for as instructions on how to do it -- that'd take a while to explain.

I'd be happy to share my skin changes with you! I sent you a PM -- enjoy. 8)

I'm pretty happy with the way it looks now. Here's another screenshot of it -- I made some minor changes to the headers.

Silly Question.. but how did you get the Tree Nodes on the right hand side of your screen?

Its fine for me. I can't imagine why a skin would change the functionality of the stop button.

@ analog.Balrog

Thanks very much for the info regarding the tracklisting. And I really appreciate the message with the skin attached! I never expected that! :P

I had a problem with the background colours, but after some playing around with it, I found out the problem was all my own doing, D'OH! :roll:

No matter how many different skins I install, I always find myself going back to this skin eventually (though your newest VitreousBlue is also getting quite a bit of use), so thanks once again Nohitter! However.........

@ analog.Balrog
Is there any way of explaining (to a complete and utter skinner newbie) how you made those colour tweeks to the skin? The darker backgrounds are quite easy on the eye!
I also love the layout of your panels. As soon as I upgrade to a bigger monitor, thats exactly the layout I'd be aiming for :D

Also, while this has nothing to do with the skinning, the last posted picture reminded me of a question I've been meaning to ask for ages. Is there any way to get the tracklisting in the "album art+details" view to be fully expanded all the time? For me it always defaults to the first 7 tracks........

So, I tweaked the awesome Zune skin's colors a little (just for fun). Thought I might show it to you guys. I'm sure most people will like the original better -- I was just trying to match the rest of my computer...

Anyway, I wish there was a way to change the star icons. It doesn't appear possible in MM3. Does anyone know how to do that? I made some red ones that I'd like to use...

Thanks!

Here's a clip:

I tried to keep it as small as possible, so I removed a few buttons I don't use.

Here are the differences from Winamp Windowshade:
-No Main Menu button
-Single play/pause button (instead of separate buttons)
-No Open button (don't use it) and DJ button to toggle AutoDJ instead of ML (Media Library) button
-No mute button (I only use pause)
-No minimize button, and Maximize and Close are stacked instead of side-by-side
-Added Album Cover next to Maximize/Close
