Screenshot (version 1.0)

Regarding mmStations (now Stations), do you see what I mean that in Moka it's got the same brown background as the rest of the skin? It makes it fit in seamlessly.

All the best,

Greetings

@ MM3 monkey

its good to her more suggestions and opinions.
thanks for screenshots ,looks like here,like i say before i test the skin on 3 differend tft monitors and it looks ok, but yesterday i get shock i see noirSkin on an old pc with windows ME and old 17er monitor = very dark and strange behavior!
so i change today the black select font to white, you can see on the screenshot this is maybe better for darker screens.
what you think about?

What you see is a eee PC optimize Noir version (min res. 800x400)

@dypsis
To mutch work for the moment ,maybe somebody else can help or want do it?

I think that's much better. I really should have told you that I was using my feeble internal graphics card which could explain the 'old computer' behavior.

It's the same in the Blue Noir skin too really. When tracks are 'selected but unfocused' the highlighting obscures rather than enhances the text.

However, I really cxame in here to tell you that I like Blue Noir so much that I'm sticking with it - and I like it SO much that I care even less about the highlighting issue. It really looks good and I'm immensely grateful.

I think you could maybe use a light font for Blue Noir like you've done in your previous post for Noir. But maybe it's just my graphics card.

Thanks again - oh, and please put your feet upy for a bit, using Blue Noir with ordinary Noir Lyrics Viewer etc will just remind me to be patient and grateful!

I'd be interested to hear of any 'faults'/improvements Morten sees in Noir, if any. It's so good that I think it's worth getting perfect (and maybe even the official MM seal of approval).

-Open floatplayer.mskn in Theme editor
-Export bitmaps.
-Find "ratings" and edit the image or make a new one.
-When your done, open floatplayer.mskn again.
-go to "image"
-Find "ratings" and replace the image with the new one.

You need themeeditor 7

and the mskn files are inside the msz file ,unzip with a zip prog.
maybe you can use the rating from colored versions
