I decided to try my hand at a 'flat' skin with a Windows 8 feel to it.

I've included some features/tweeks that came up in discussion with rrfpacker who was kind and honest enough to give some critique when requested. I hope these skins meet with your requirements ;)

OSW8 v.1.0

First released: 23-07-2014

Current version: 1.0

Last Update: 23-07-2014

Miniplayer can be stretched horizontally from right hand edge.
Tabbed MonkeyRok skin available.
Lyrics & Comments Viewer skin available.

If you like the skin, then feel free to enjoy. If you don't like the skin (or find it boring)....delete the download!

OhEmGee, where was I when these came out?? It is Christmas in August. Awesome, incredible, amazing skins. These will be in high rotation, the colors are beautiful.

Now to the most important part. My lyrics panel (and comment panel in the Basics tab) is white with almost invisible lyrics (have only tried the lavendar skin so far). Is your panel white or black with light colored font? But, the Playlists panel, in the Classification tab, is dark with light font.

Is it just me?

@rrfpacker... Guess you missed the launch party as well then :D

Tried to include a number of features/tweeks that you gave during our discussions, e.g. player size, player compression, continuous colour backgrounds, etc.

Hope you enjoy using them.

As for the Lyrics panel...yes it is black with white text but I fear you're not seeing it again.....see the post here for more info http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=77220&p=393794#p393794

There was a party? I have the perfect hat!

As far as this; "Tried to include a number of features/tweeks that you gave during our discussions, e.g. player size, player compression, continuous colour backgrounds, etc." I think you nailed it. I will truly enjoy these. The only thing I see missing, and this is very minor, is that it would be cool if the rating stars in the player would change to the skin's highlight color, like Track 8 and Track 9.

Thank you very much for your time and effort trying to "fix" my problem. That is above and beyond as I recall you are a busy person, even if this isn't the crazy season. It will be a few days before I can get to another computer to see if the problem is isolated to my laptop.

Until then, I will enjoy these new skins. Thank you.

Thanks Coach.

I have only just noticed this.
Very good. :)

A non-tabbed MonkeyRok skin would be nice though. :wink:

I know I can enlarge it by double-clicking on it, but the enlarge album art button is a nice touch. For me, album art is an integral part of my listening experience. Oh and ditto the mute button.

Sorry, but I just don't find the tabbed version as useful.

I absolutely love your skin but I noticed that when I scroll my music it seems very jumpy. May be my setup I have a midrange gaming pc so prolly not the performance end. Not sure if anyone else is having this problem. If you need anymore information let me know. I can always try a non portable install if that would help. Thanks for nay help you can provide.

Updated to a beta version of mediamonkey. Now it is all working smoothly. Once again thanks for the amazing skin.

@CoachUK

Thank you.

Do you think we could have an original non tabbed MonkeyRok version?
