Thank you Paulmt

I'm glad it makes you like MM again, and I hope it will inspire other guys to make some new skins, despite the ThemeEngine limitations.

Thanks nyn!

Thanks dypsis, oops I forgot this one.

Now, we just need matching skins for Lyrics and Comment Viewer. :)

I agree but for now I am using the Old School Theme with it.

Agora goes well with Zekton Blue, and Songbird goes well with Zekton P-Steel.

Well, I don't have this script and don't intend to use it neither.
But I can take a look at it... later in December, because I'm working on another skin idea named Cafe Moka,
a new concept that you will probably like :wink: But if somebody want do it than go for it! (Images from MokeyRok are free and there's no copyright)

I took some ideas from espresso machines:

why take just ideas? find a front shot of the machine and use it for a skin for the float player,
just change the buttons to say what is needed in photo shop. you could use the glass fill site for the seek bar.

lots of good ideas when you start thinking of the photos of items as the complete skin. that is what i did with the float player of the guitar i made. just used the image. same thing with the float player of the cb radio i made.

its a lot easier to use a photo then try and figure out what to make, plus the company that makes the equipment gets a free player that way. :D

Yes Rovingcowboy this can be a way to do it, but I don't want a coffee machine to be a player.
I had the idea first, made a sketch in Photoshop then looked for missing colors/shapes from coffee machines.
It's looking pretty nice now.

I used to use LCV but now use MonkeyRok for lyrics so I dropped the first. I'm very glad you included MR skins with your base skins. Thanks!

Hi Eyal,
the skins are awesome, now Ill have to try and top it : ) one thing I did notice maybe its only on mine or maybe you did it on purpose, but when I went to any of nodes other than title I was getting a plain white background in the main panel. I went in and modified the virtual tree to take care of it on mine, just thought I mention it to you

Thanks spacefish! You will probably be able to download it this week-end.
But forget about the coffee machine picture, it has taken a completely different look than what I was expecting.
Anyway, I will make 3 different colours and I think you'll like it.

Thanks irshjet35! I can't replicate the white backround problem. The backround in the skin is displayed automatically by
sdb_background_tree.bmp, sdb_background_list.bmp and sdb_background_playing.bmp which are in the msz file.
The only thing I can see is that you have enabled "Overide Skin Background" in the options.

After I wrote that, I think I figure the issue, it was keeping the main image from another skin after I had changed to yours, dont know why, I cant replicate it on my home machine. now I feel silly :oops:

i noticed that white panel on the now playing node , i get it every time i click that on any skin.? so you think going to the virtural tree in the mskn file for the theme and making some changes there will stop it? :-?
