Very nice E, I did not install the original Spotify because I tend to like color and this one does it very well. Good job as usual.

Mizery_Made, are you serious or just joking? Is there any color you would like to suggest?

You asked for it. I think a nice deep burgundy and an even darker gray would look AWESOME.

Absolutely beautiful skin. I have kept all five and love them.

I was just trying to jokingly allude to the fact that now that you've done a second version with an alternate color, you would likely receive some "You should do ___ next" and other such demands/requests. Though perhaps it's a combination of you and myself who have opened that gate, haha.

Ultimately, it doesn't bother me if you were to do more colors (be them ones I may want, or ones others desire) as I'm quite happy with the Gray. If you are open to suggestions for possible future variations, I would toss a dark/rich red into the pool or a dark/reddish pink (or perhaps something in a similar vein of Royal Negative Pink).

As I said though, only throwing them out there as ideas. If you happen to do one, cool, if not, then cool too because the Gray is still a great skin. Besides, the more time you spend customizing this one into variations, the less time you have to put in on your next masterpiece that will blow us all away. :wink:

i really like the colour of the indy skin. it kind of has a calming effect.
now i switched from the ecplise theme. i have never found a skin which is as good as the eclipse but i think i have found one :P
imo two different colours should be enough of a skin.
only one little point: why do you have changed the design of the song rating? i kind of like the older one better. the quadrilaterals look kind of plain to me :oops:
maybe dots would look better, like the one from the volume/seek bar...

Hm... small rounded bars similar to that of the scroll bars. That thought just popped in my head after reading heartofhate's post. I don't mind them how they are now, just an idea that came to mind and thought I would share it.

That's funny. Eyal changed the rating design because every one disliked the other design.
I guess you just can't please everyone. :-?

I love the Indie skin...The little splash of blue is great. I found another little font issue....Illustrated below.

I believe that may fit under the umbrella of this.

Thank you rrfpacker. Darker gray is on my list.
I'm working on burgundy. Actually it looks like this, but it's not finished yet:

But I think you want it darker? Maybe I will keep this one and make another one darker.


@Mizery_Made, first thanks for encouragement and suggestions, opening the gate seems profitable to everybody.
Dark/reddish pink? Hmm... Maybe Shiny Rabbit/Miku Hatsune will like it?

@Nynaevelan, nice lavendar or light purple? Good idea. It's on my list too.

@Heartofhate and Mizery_Made, I tried rounded shape icons for ratings, and it's really ugly. I keep trying other shapes...

@TheCool, I'm sorry there's nothing I can do with these yellow/gray colors for now. According to Ventis, it should be fixed in next MM 3.2.1 version. You can temporarly disable the checkboxes to see the text. Example: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... 35#p234309

@gpzbc, you're right... :-?


Thank you all MediaMonkey fans and Happy Holidays! :)

:~)

Eyal,

The burgundy skin is absolutely beautiful, it took my breath away. It looks like a glass of Pinot Noir. Wow!

I couldn't begin to tell you how to adjust the color, I trust you. If you choose to release this current version and a darker one, I would use both, I am so enamored with this skin. And for what it's worth, I like the current rating icons.

I will anxiously wake up each day and check MM for the next surprise.
