Fixed the player (Main and Mini) for MM3 and the minilyrics skin for the latest version. I have included MM_White_O micro player (hope thats ok) It sort of goes well with the theme :)

The minilyrics can be difficult to resize (move the player over to the side and get the lyrics panel right then move the player back.

You can cover up the album art for a normal sized player

blake you can use it if they create it in mm3.

really it is not that hard to do.

take all the main player images in the skin.

all the background images.

and the theme.mskn file

and use only those in the new skin. don't over write the theme file with one from mm3 or you will lose some old mm2 features like the use of images in the background.

since the theme is almost complete just add in the images of sel.png and infopopup.bmp. and add in the old list view background images to the theme.mskn file

then save it and get out you finished the theme file.

now copy the player the float player and the micro player files
from one of your other mm3 skins and put them in the folder for the old skin.

change the images on the mini skin image.
all you need on it are the ones for the main player. not the pos bar it wont work.
and not the balance image, or the volume image they wont work in mm 3 atleast i could not figure them out.

you need the ccbuttons the shuffel buttons the main image that becomes the background image for the player.

then you need the rating the mute button and the visual images. the seek image from mm3


i did not use any other image on the player skin image.
i just colored all the rest i did not use the pink background color

make the main player and the buttons lager if you want to but to keep the same feel you need to make them all using the same ratio of increase in size.

then just load the skin bmp back in to the player mskn and the background in to the player mskn.

re adjust the images on all the buttons and stuff.
re size the background image and client to fit the old player image size.
save the mskn file close out.
now copy the player mskn file. and paste it in the folder for the float player, rename it to floatplayer.mskn

now get all the files needed for the mm 3 skin and copy them in to a test folder.
open the player ini file change the size of the player to
the size of the background image you made. then change
the resizable option to read all zero's so it is a fixed size
just like the old skin.

now start the monkey up change the skin to the test folder.
use the player ini file in the way of you look to see where
the buttons are at on the player then change the size and postions of the buttons in the ini file to where you think.
they should be.

then switch to the float player and then restore to the main player. you will see the buttons have been moved.
do that with all the stuff to get it in the proper postions.

then just copy the info from the player ini and paste it in the floatplayer ini file. both will be working and both will be the same.

thats all you have to do for the old mm 2.5.5 skins to look like that and work in mm 3.

Sorry for posting in an old thread but Great Skin, its a bit too late for me to use it now that I have completely phased out MM2.x, actually, I could use the theme and the MiniLyrics skins, excellent!

No i didn't/don't, what menu buttons?
I have no trouble reading any of the text

you mean to tell me you can read the words to the left of the search text area? on that big brown image above?

that's the menu bar who's fonts are controld by the desktop of the users computer. if you change them on your computer it will only be on your computer that is changed.
which is why i suggested to use the light yellow in the background it will be best to use for black fonts which is what 90% of the people use on their computers.

but your skin is good. it is not perfect but neither are mine :lol: i just like to read the fonts.

if you can read them just wait until you get my age or older. :P :P

:wink:

you see what i ment about the light yellow on the menu buttons?

the words are black and unreadable on the brown.

little things like that are good to keep in mind because not every one knows what the buttons are by location since the location can be changed
by the users. and not everyone has the tool tip options turned on.

or for some other of the million windows screwed up reasons,
windows dicided to stop using the tool tip's
it does that a lot on my win 98 computer.

but making all the brown shades look good is hard to do.

you did get a good looking skin.

Thanks champ

Click the player image should do it

Matching mini lyrics just under the image

PS
A few things are still blue monkey
But I either like it like that or don't use it or haven't noticed it annoying me :)

You can change it yourself or post a request and I'll fix/change it fairly quickly

Thanks
