I'm afraid I don't know what you mean, Glamton, though I do appreciate the feedback.

What gray font are you referring to? All the text is black as far as I'm aware. And black on white is generally acceptable, isn't it :wink: ? (after all, same scheme used by Google, Windows explorer, etc.)

I try to explain my concerns with screens.

Number one:
Image
The font color is too dark. Here I find it often difficult to find the title that is being played to orient myself. So at best a little brighter. The RGB values ​​should look like right now is: 75,70,70.

Here, then possibly move immediately toward blue; ie: 70,70,75. This would then also with the player control below which has actually become very good(!), Look good.


Number two:
Image
Okay, I can explain this a little easier now.

Here is the white color I just said. You can have them, no question, but a blue (RGB value: 112,134,165) would also fit well. Directly above it is indeed the navigation. Here the color is black, I really see nothing! Only when hovering the look's really cool. Here, then take the normal link for the White, a: hover can be maintained.

I didn't realize you mean the Dark version :lol: , my mistake!

What color do you suggest for the track list? Now the color is 112,112,112 (hex 707070). 70,70,75 would make the text even darker... :-?

I will fix the Navigation toolbar text, thanks for bringing that up.

Yeah, this was only an estimate of how the color is actually. I'm gonna test which brighter gray-ish color fits the theme better. I'll post my suggestion here tomorrow cuz now I'm gonna watch a movie, haha. It's 6:30 pm in Germany right now. :P
For now I would say something around RGB value 132,132,132 up to 142,142,142. So I would definitely test even 132,137,142. The color seems to be brighter in the overall picture. This is due to the preponderance of blue.

Thanks! I just downloaded version 2.0.1 and I noticed one more small font issue.

The text in the album art & details box is black, and therefore is not visible.

Yes, I'm aware of it. Unfortunately due to skinning limitations we don't have control over the font color there, it's always black.

Do you mean the font color in the column browser? It's the same color as in the track list.

I would prefer to wait to make a MonkeyRok skin until the next MonkeyRok update - there has not been an official MM4 update to MonkeyRok yet.

Nice update on the Dark skin, like all the changes made to it, it's much easier on the eyes now :). Now if there only was a matching skin for Lyrics & Comments viewer nudge nudge :wink: :wink:

I've now tested with the following pure color and set a screen. On the screen, the colors are explained. The gray color is slightly lighter. For the specification for album, artist, and so on, I've identified two long-standing blue colors that fit well with the background. I prefer the lighter version.

Would that be something for version 2.0.2? :-)

It looks great! I'll watch the next few days what could be improved upon. :-)

Edit: I found time for another beautiful picture example and idea!

Thanks, yes I missed the font color in a few places. It should be okay now, but let me know if you find anything else.

I can't fix the "dashed line" problem, it is hard-coded into MediaMonkey and there's no way to hide it. I have put in a request so we could skin it, but no word on whether it will be implemented.
