Corny request

What are the chances i can get somebody to create a skin based on the 80s- 90s hairbands? I love that era and thought it would be awsome to have as a skin....The usual bands, GnR, Motley crue, Ratt, that sort of stuff.






Sorry that this request is made, I know some just hate that point in time. But i love it.

hair bands.?

i was thinking the glam rock era when you said that.

motly crew was not glam rock.

so this would only be viable in the floating player, since
it has the most room on the screen to work with.

the main player has to have room for the spreadsheet stuff.

which means the next question is what would you expect to see.
guitar like rock and roll cafe's sign?
hair wig?
some photo of one of the bands with all and any item
from all bands so it wont be for one band only.

if the band photo should it be on stage with full
background of stage or a trasparent background where
the band is the only thing shown.

what instrument do you play that you would want
to be used as the controls?

lots of stuff to consider.

i do not have any images for any of the above so you
would have to make sure the person that does the skin
has all the images you have and or want in the skin.

for some reason this sounds like it would be a skin steegy
would like to make.? not sure but the name steegy just
seems to fit that band era?

blake seems to fit a privet eye situation?
morten makes me think of salt?

no harm or insult ment to the others.
thats just what your names make me think of.

I personally don't think the 80's skin would be good, I guess that is probably because I wasn't born at that time.

Skins are really easy to make, and even easier to modify.
You could very easily make this skin by yourself by changing the images.
If there is already a template of the layout that you want in an 80's version (like casino blue) then it would be extremely easy to work with.

Take a look at the wiki:

To find out more about skinning if you want to. It is always good to have extra skinners in the community.
