I just wanted to say that the "Indie" version of your skin is now my favorite. It's just so soothing to use. Great work! Thanks!

i have exchanged the original one with the dark stars from your helium skin.
You mean something like this?

I made an Indie version with Wine's icon set and rating, something like this:

What do you think?

I think we could play the "Let's modify skins with little changes" game forever. While I like different colors, ratings, icons, etc. I sometimes think we are asking too much of the wonderful skins being provided.

I am learning how to change theme colors, fonts, icons, and next how to change ratings, so that I can do this myself and let those who are creative keep on creating.

That being said, anything a skinner wants to do to enhance/upgrade their skin is welcomed by everyone, I'm sure. I'm just looking forward to the next skin.

Thank you for wonderful, beautiful skins.

yep, i acctually meant your first picture. i'll keep it like this.

and rrfpacker: you are probably right. the skinner should create the skins he likes and the users should accept it. but sometimes little changes are worth it. the skinner has to decide if the suggestions of the users are goods or bads.
if a user is unhappy with something then he can change everything. it is not that hard :D

I think I like the stars better. But colored stars might look nice? Just an idea....

great Skin.

I would prefer stars, too. ;)

Will you add the Cover Icon to the Micro Player ??

Eyal you're custom (spotify inspired) ratings are very nice and original.
For me its better then the usual ( boring ) stars.
Keep it :wink:

I'd prefer the "bars" if the bars were the color of the stars or text instead of being orangy.

It's nice when a themer asks for input, but ultimately you get to please yourself.

Fantastic skin you have here. Feels like I upgraded MediaMonkey to version 4.0 when applying it. Love the icons on the tree bar and the new ratings symbols are very hot.

The only thing I don't like is the scrollbars, there all expanded and jaggie, but this is cause I set my Window 7 DPI to 125%.

Anyway, thanks for creating this skin!

What a skin!! Goodbye to my old black favourites (MM-Ultimate and Noir), now it is Spotify-Indie!

I had hoped to find a skin with a resizeable player to put under one of the MM panels to save space on the screen of my new W7 laptop. But I've stopped searching.... Thank you very much!

The standard skins of MM really need an update...

EDIT: But on my screen it is very hard to read the white letters on the light grey background when I use Auto-tag from Internet.

Hi everybody, thank you very much for your comments.

@tatoosh - sorry I have no plan to add cover icon to the MicroPlayer.

@Sammy20 - I don't understand, scrollbars should not be affected by changing Windows DPI. However I can't confirm, I don't have Win7.

@nojac - Known issue, text color on gray and yellow colors. Should be fixed in next MM version:

Hi Eyal, thanks very much for your work on this skin, it's the first time I've switched up my MM skin in years, and I'm loving it.

My only teeny gripe is the text in the search bar is difficult to read. I don't know if you have control over the colour of that font, but it would be great if it could be made lighter in future versions, maybe to match the text in the drop-down that appears below the search window.
