[New Skin] SoftBlue

Post by Steegy »

Hi

This is my second official MM skin, called "SoftBlue".

Screenshot of version 1.0.2:

Download here (version 1.0.4 - 2007-01-02, improved (and darker) player skin)

Or the displayed v1.0.2 (version 1.0.2 - 2006-12-30, first version of the player skin)


To do:
- panel: create resizing handles

I hope to make some variations on this skin (e.g. SoftWhite, SoftBlack, SoftGray, SoftDarkBlue, SoftDarkRed, ...) once this one is finished (enough).


Hope you like it :)

I do like it, but why only 3 buttons in the top right hand corner?

Highlighted tracks within playlists don't show the actual highlighting :(

i'll answer the three button question for steegy. :)

it is because he used a skin for a templete that only had 3 buttons.

not many have more then that some do but most only use the skins with 3 buttons for templetes. 8)


not sure why the highlighted text is not working right? he must have missed the right text to adjust that or something in the windows os is messing with that text. :-? :o

All I'll say for now is that the script does need some more work. I posted the skin because then "part I" is finished (make the skin in one day and see what people think of it...).

About the 3 buttons: that's Windows default and 3 seem enough to me. What extra button would you like? You can minimize-to-tray using the close button, if you set this in the MM options...

I do have some trouble with the colors:

Code: Select all

[TrackList]
OddColor=0xffffff
EvenColor=0xf8fafc

[NPList]
OddColor=0xffffff
EvenColor=0xf8fafc
aren't the colors they should be (0xf8fafc = 0x00f8fafc = lightblue, but is not shown correctly (lightgray)).
But highlighting does work, the colors are just not what I want them to be.

@RovingCowboy: The code I posted is only for the Fonts.ini file of the skin. Obviously I use the Theme Editor to make the whole theme. The player skin was made without editing program.

Hi Steegy,
Got the skin and I love it. It looks so nice.

Some things as suggestion:
- I too would like the minimize to tray fourth button (no I prefer not to use the close button for that).
- Player text probably could be a bit more contrasting to the player background.
- It seems that a background for the explorer tree is missing as I have a windows default non white background. A white or lightblue background probably would be nice.
- And please, please create a SoftBlue skin for MonkeyRok.

And thanks again.

i like it, except why is my music explorer tree a pinkish tone with music notes in the background and on your screenshot it is white?

@fareal: Make sure that you haven't chosen to override the skin's backgrounds: uncheck "Override skin backgrounds" in menu Tools > Options... > Appearance > Skins.

Thanks for the nice words everyone!

@Lowlander: now I have no time to make changes, but you can easily override the missing tree background with your own bitmap (e.g. just white color), for now.
