I really like the looks of this skin. It has a lot of potential.

Enjoy your time away!
Thanks for the beta version to chew on while you are away. :D

EDIT: I just installed the beta version of this skin and I am very impressed. It is very very polished. MediaMonkey should consider adding Vision or UMP as the default skin. You and Eyal really have a knack for producing beautiful dark skins. Thank you. I'll try to give some constructive feedback on the beta.

I agree, that the text is a little bit difficult to read since it is so similar to the background color. However, I really like the background color and the concept of having a dark text on that dark background color. It is different from all of the other dark themes.

UPDATE: The more I use this skin, the more I like the black text on the dark background. It is just so sleek. However, not all of my text is black. The "Album Art with Details" view uses white text for my library. And the black text in the folder tree and now playing list look much better.

UPDATE 2: That's weird. I just switched to plain "Details" view, and noticed that the text was black. Then I switched back to "Album Art with Details" view and the text is now black too! :-? That's great, but I'm not sure what is going on.

UPDATE 3: I just minimzed MM to the mini-player and the library text in "Album Art with Details" view reverted back to white text. I think I may have found a bug.

Seems like your monitors are too dark because I have no problems reading the text. I really like the dark text on the grey background.
@DreadM:
If you choose to use a lighter color for the text, please make two versions. One with dark text and one with light text. :D

Edit:
btw I also created a MonkeyRok theme based on this theme. If you want it, just tell me.

well it's a normal behavior , we can handel 3 different text color's,
1:unselect window / text = gray
2:select window = black
3:select text = white

@paku:
IF you like ,publish your LV and MR skin's here ,with screenshot's and download link ,

Yes, I'm pretty sure the black text gets my vote too.

if you like to use a skin that is unreadable then it is your right to do so.

but i don't like to see things that are to give information to people be unable to have everyone read that information if it is typed there by them when they try to use the thing or shown in type to them by the thing.

but sure if you want the black font on black background that is fine its just not going to be used by more then about .000002 percent of the people in the world. cause they too can't read what is there.

remember older users need more contrast then what black on black gives? of course they would not get the skin
cause they can not read it.

now for the artist side of me.

that black skin with everything black will be great to keep the album covers shown and in the main focus of the users.
and this gives a style that not many do in way of art.
its more goth then most like.

but so will the monkeyflow script if it is used by those that can use it.



so basicly what the deal is,
Is that you make it like you want if some one else gets it then there are two that at least have the same likes. but those that don't won't get it. 8)


even simpler way of saying it is.

it is your skin you are just offering it for download by others that might like what you do.

Thanks RC,
but there is absolute no black Background in this Skin,
I think you have a monitor problem,maybe you have to use a monitor testing tool you suggest often in some older post's from you :lol: 8) :wink:
