It isn't really that complicated to change. In the ThemeEditor with Theme.mskn opened, just go to File -> Export Bitmaps. Edit the image called topbar.bmp with an image editor (but you must keep the same dimensions as the original image, and the buttons must remain the same size or left unchanged). After the image has been edited, go to topbar.bmp under Images in the ThemeEditor and use the replace button to replace it with your image.

Got it, thanks! I changed that BMP to a dark blue background and also the font color of the titlebar to white. Looks better to my old eyes. :)

I wouldn't exactly go that far. :) It's still a pain in the rear end just to modify the color of the titlebar for me. I'm not a graphical artist guy. Whatever I do graphically, it's usually just wiht "Paint", or if I'm really feeling savvy then "The Gimp".

And while I'm a true to the core supporter of the Corps, I tend to be a minimalist when it comes to computer programs. I'm a database programmer by trade, and I appreciate a good database. But to me, a database shouldn't waste any space, ever! I'm a fanatic on the pixel level when it comes to databases. If I made a USMC theme then it would cheapen both the USMC and MediaMonkey... at least from my two perspectives as both a USMC supporter and a database minimalist. 8)

Semper Fidelis!

Player looks much better now, had issues before with it not showing up right. Seems to display well now. My favorite skin is still Ultimate, but Aqua is now another one I'll keep as available. One feature that Ultimate has is ability to set "star ratings" from it's all it's players. I noticed that this is only available in Aqua Mini-Player. Any chance to adding ratings to your other two players? Thanks for your work on this great skin.

bob61, thanks for your interest in this skin. I don't know if you've fully read the thread, but this is not really my skin, but it is a conversion of an older skin available with MM2. While the ratings in the player may be useful, I don't really feel comfortable adding such a drastic change to the skin as I am not the original author. My goal for these "converted skins" is to retain the original look as much as possible - unless of course the author gives me permission to change his/her work. Unfortunately, I don't think the original author of this skin is still around to ask.

Of course, another reason I don't want to add in new elements is that some users are looking for the same interface they got with MM2, since they are so used to it - and they'd like to keep their MM2 feel while using the powerful new MM3 engine. I hope you understand.

That being said, I do want to make the float player match better to the skin and I certainly will be trying to fix any bugs that people find, so changes will still be forthcoming.

The red "Close" buttons (top right corner) have been broken in this skin by MM 3.1. Does anyone have a fix or a comparable skin?

I'll take a look at it and update as soon as I can. In the meantime there's a number of other converted MM2 skins:

love the skin, but feel weird clicking the red "close" button to no effect. Strange phenomenon abound

you could go to my skins download area in my public msn folder site and get the aqua44 skin its the same as this one but my style i made the shorter player bigger and added the the stars to it.

not sure if the close button is wrong in it or not since i have not tried it in a while.
