How do I upload a new skin?

Postby Dr.Sol » Wed Jan 07, 2015 8:22 am

Do you know how to upload a new skin?

It would be handsome to share a new skin I´ve been working with, and getting some feedback and hear if it is Ok. Though, there is one problem, and that is that I don´t know how to attach the .msz file? If I had an own server it would be easy putting a URL path in the message, but I don't, so do you have any creative solutions?

You can host it yourself and link from a topic here or submit it to the Addons page: http://www.mediamonkey.com/addon_system/admin/

Why not store the file on Dropbox and then post the link to download the file from there. I's what most of the skinners do.

No, most of them use the MM addons page.

Tries to upload a skin.mmip - to the addons page, but gets "Unable to read file information from the "Install.ini"" on the upload page.

The install.ini looks like this:
Code: Select all
[Header]
ID=drsolsmusictreasure
Title=Dr.Sol's Music Treasure
Description=A skin based on gold and high end equipment
VersionMajor=0
VersionMinor=2
VersionRelease=0
VersionBuild=0
ShowRestartPrompt=1
Type=skin ; so MM knows what it is
[Copy]
Src=Dr_Sols_Music_Treasure.msz
Tgt={app}\Dr.Sols Music Treasure.msz


The only thing I omitted compared to the Installation package description in the MM Wiki was the "UpdateURL"-tag, but since I don't have an own server there was no meaning writing anything there.

what is wrong?

Finally, I could upload the skin. Not sure what was failing, but it worked when the upload procedure was restarted and the ID in the header was changed to a much shorter one. 8)
