MetalFrog Skin - Big Buttons Bright Orange Color

Post by MetalFrog » Sat Jun 12, 2010 3:21 am

I set out to make a skin that I wanted to look at, and got up to the point of having a functional micro player and main player. I ran out of steam, and lost all interest in completely customizing the rest of the skin.

I'm releasing all of my resources on this project with an MIT License, so anyone can modify, re-release or do whatever they want to with what I have so far.

Main Player

Micro Player Double Height

Micro Player Normal Height

Known Bugs
The float player was never finished, so it's very broken.

The micro skin player buttons do not match the main player's. I originally had an idea to make them glow orange when hovering, that didn't pan out after I made the main player. I just never got around to going back into the micro and redoing the buttons.

Sometimes, when loading MediaMonkey, the micro skin does not work. Restoring and closing back to the micro player seems to fix it.
The main theme was never styled, because I didn't want to spend a lot of time with trial and error tweaking colors.

-- I guess this is a bug -- I won't be maintaining it. Heck, I won't even be subscribed to this thread, so chances are I won't see your replies. Don't ask me for bug fixes or make feature requests. Take the resources I've uploaded and run with them! :D Read this post for more info.

Skin Folder
Yes, folder. I didn't even bother making an installable skin file, that's how much I've lost motivation.

Skin Resources
All the PSDs that I've used to piece together my skin.

Enjoy!

I like it :D

I think I can polish this off for you in a couple of days when I have some free time (unless someone with more time wants to)

I'm also pleased to announce Japanese song titles look very clear on it on XP

update: I've made a splash screen for this skin for those of you who use them

Image

just save the image, rename is "Splash.png" create a folder in your MediaMonkey root directory, call it "Brand" put it in there

Awesome. I included all my PSDs, but if you need anything else from me, shoot me a PM.

really nice skin. i like that fact that it is darkish and light-coloured at the same time.
is there any chance that we are going to see a monkeyrok skin? that would be really cool :wink:

unless someone else is willing to make one, it's doubtful as MetalFrog has stated he won't be maintaining this skin but anyone can mod and release it as they please as long they don't claim it all their own. I would make one but I'm having enough trouble tweaking the original skin as it is

I got tired of the orange, and redid it as a red skin, and when MM4 came out, my skin was pretty ruined. I tried making it work with the updated Gilded, but I had some big problems with it, and decided to mix my player into the Photoshop skin that Monkey made. I don't use the float player, so I never did anything to it.

I can upload what I use now, and combine all the PSDs I used if you felt like tweaking things to your liking.
