Req: iTunes 11 skin

Post by Undertone » Thu Dec 13, 2012 10:10 am

I don't know if this is the right place to talk about this. I would love to have the itunes 11 skin for MM. Its incredibly beautiful, in my opinion. But, being aware of the weakness of MM's GUI,that's where it would cause a problem, correct me if I'm wrong.

Although would you think its possible? I'm mentioning this because foobar 2000 is working on the skin which really looks similar!

Here's the link :

Not sure if it is or not i dont use itunes and i dont know if it is an areo skin or older style? Did you check the skins for mm3 on the wiki skin page there were some itunes skins there.

Hi Speakerzmoon

Well theme and player is more or less no problem ,
it can look like this:
Image

but if you ask for the very nice new Albumview from iT 11, thats simple not possible with the current Skinning engine from MM.
also the cool new miniplayer ,is not possible.
maybe you have to address your wish to the MediaMonkey Wishlist / Devs,
but i think they have enough to do at the moment with Android and Win8 stuff .

Hi dreadM! Very nice job as usual :D One of my favorite skins for MM is your Vision skin I never changed it ever since! You're very talented!

Thanks for your effort on posting this. I also figured that the new itunes Albumview was not possible because of the engine..thats really too bad :roll:

I've talked some months back with a developer of MM through their support website (mainly for a debug log purpose) and he told me that the engine will hopefully change in

Mediamonkey 5.

I think till now all we can do is wait for that to happen..as u said they still have a lot of work to do..especially many bugs to fix :-?

Thanks again for posting this I appreciate it :)

Cheers!

maybe you can release this fine piece of work as an alternative to the itunes skins (if i remember right those were also mady by you).
just a suggestion...

Here is a small preview of the IMonkey 2.0 Skin

I think the new players match the iTunes 11 style,
also the new Pop Up Info :wink:

:o

Simply amazing..can't wait to have this..thank you soo much DreadM!

Just to make sure, the background colour of iMonkey will be matching the album art's colour, right?

Have you decided when will this new version be released approximately? :D

Thx again!

No ,still not possible for us skinners to do something like this ,
Theme use old iMonkey skin with some minor bugfix and changes, new players and new InfoPopUp.
maybe something similar is possible via scripting , but I'm not sure.

I know it is probably not on your roadmap seing as I think it would rerquire a lot of work, but a dark version of this skin would be sweet.

Always great to have choices of skins to use, but dont see any of them big enough or bold enough to jump up and down and scream about, just most are on the boring side of my likes.

But as always you did a good job on your creation of the skin dreadm. 8)

I just want colors and different items on the skins as you well know.

This is somewhat like what I imagine a dark version would look like: http://browse.deviantart.com/#/d2ryzot. It doesn't have to be quite as black but generally I prefer dark skins (currently using your dark version of G-Monkey, a great example of a dark version of a light original).
