Blue Glass Song Title Cutoff

Post by rrfpacker » Fri Mar 06, 2009 7:35 pm

Has anyone ever noticed that if the song title has letters that extend below the line (the imaginary line that the title sits on), such as g, y, q, j, and y that part of the letter is cut off? No big deal but seems to distract from a beautiful skin.

Is there a way to fix this?

Hi Rrfpacker, yes indeed it's a beautiful skin.
You can fix it by following these steps:

1) Locate the file C:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\Skins\Blue Glass.msz and open it with Winzip or a compatible archive compressor.
2) Edit with notepad the in-file PLAYER.INI and locate the [SongTitle] section.
3) In that section change the two lines to be:

Code: Select all

Pos=138,2
Size=100,16
4) Save the file and confirm when Winzip ask to modify the file in the archive.

Do the same for FLOATPLAYER.INI with the following lines:

Code: Select all

Pos=138,2
Size=156,16
Skins for MediaMonkey: Cafe, Carbon, Helium, Spotify, Zekton. [ Wiki Zone ].

Excellent, works like a charm.

Goods news for me is I actually understand why your instructions work. You raised the line in order to make it bigger.

Even as a novice I should have thought of that. Thank you so much.

keep in mind you might make it cover something else up if you make that line higher.
changing little things in the skin like that always seems to be a pain when you find it makes something else not right.
you get in to a bucket of worms and then you really have a mess. :)

Understood. If it does cover something up, I'll have to put it back the way it was. I'm just glad it fixed BlueGlass.
