LCARS SKIN

Post by emotionmachine » Wed Sep 30, 2009 6:58 am

Is anyone interested in perhaps collaborating on an LCARS Skin for MM3? LCARS being the standard computer interface for Star Trek: The Next Generation... image here: http://www.startrek4u.com/special/multi ... tlepod.png

I'm a graphic designer by trade, but skinning/scripting leaves me a bit stymied...

Reply here if anyone is willing!

already made check the skins site for monkey. i did not do an exact pixel by pixel copy of it cause that would get anyone in trouble with copyright laws. but i did an 98% copy of it called startreking monkey :D

edited in .
well of course if you want to make another one thats alright too but if you just did not think it was already done that is why i said it is done.
as for skinning mediamonkey it is the same as skinning winamp 2 classic, just unzip the msz files and change the images with the use of the theme skinning engine 7. there are several walkthoughs on the skinning site at the monkey's wiki pages. if you need to get more help just ask away here someone will help.
i suggest picking a skin like one of mine or maybe nohitter151's or eyals or dreadm's well even dreadm's can get a little on the tricky side. ? if he uses more of the virtual tree to make things. i believe eyal and nohitter151 use the full layout of images as i do. but not sure. there are some things that are explained in the tips pages at the monkeys wiki and in walk throughs there for using images or the virtual tree in the skin. but taking a skin like my farmer monkey or fishers of men and using them will show you how many buttons are normal and how to do images in the background of the lists. plus it will show you how to make short player images that work in mediamonkey. then looking at the full size player skins in the theme engine you will understand more of what to do. but some of the other skinners used more things with the virutral tree in the skin and that makes it harder to figure out the skinning if your new to it. which is why i suggested my skins i use very little of the virt tree object.
and all the images and files that were in the orginal mm 3.0 skins. well some images i found useless and dont put them in i thought they were useless when i seen them in the winamp classic skins also. :-? :)

i don't know if he is going to reply or not i think maybe he got my skin and like vyper he liked it and thought that was it.

or maybe he is learning how to make an mm 3 skin by reading the wiki.

but thanks for the extra push to try and get a reply from them.

and thanks too for vyper to posting the links, i was trying to let them reply to you vyper before i did but looks like they don't like replying :o :-?

Such a super old post. Not even sure if people come here anymore. But I would LOVE an LCARS skin.

I have zero coding skills but could easily make all the artwork to specifications if anyone is up for it.

Something akin to this: http://www.winamp.com/skin/startrek-lca ... 2-3/138356
Or This: http://customize.org/rainmeter/skins/65670025

...but of course in MediaMonkey awesomeness.

I will check this thread daily if someone is up for it.

Thanks
