Wow, your gDark is excellent. You seem to have a real knack for the dark skins.
Thank you.

If there was only a script that you could setup to rotate your favorite skins. :lol: :lol: Of course I have more than 3, I have as many skins as I do scripts. :lol: :lol:

Thank you everybody for your comment. :D

I have a plan to improve a bit the player. As soon as I finished the one I'm working on now.

I've been using this skin for days now and I'm curious why you made the external panel headers the reddish color instead of the blue in the skin? :)

You mean green?
You don't like? I like it because red is the complementary color of green. I just wanted to make it different. Black/Green/Red, this is gDark.

Green? I know my monitor's not THAT messed up. :lol:


At any rate, I knew all that about complementary colors ..... I was just curious why you went the way you did and it's all good. :D

That makes sense.
It's not a bad color, and it complements the other colors quite well. Your overall skin works quite nicely.
I think I might have chosen to have the blue/green for all the panel headers, but that is just me.
But like I said, overall I love your gDark theme. Thanks

Hey I'm trying this out on my netbook because I like the aesthetic. Nice skin!
NOTE: The yellow highlight when auto-organizing tracks is quite hideous, and makes for difficult reading when highlighting the white text. Is this tied up within the skin, or can it be changed to something cooler?

Thank you.
I'm sorry, skin has no control on these yellow/grey colors.
It's hard-coded in MM and it's the same colors for all skins, whatever text color is.

is that white font the selected font on the skin needing to be white elsewhere eyal ? or can you change it
to a red color for the selected font? not trying to tell you how to make your skin just offering suggestions :)

Yes. It's the track list color.
