I meant white or grey/silver window boarders, player and things

I think the skin's very nice how it is, but a light version to go with it would appeal to more people

Sorry, must have missed this post somehow. Anyway, my intention wasn't to create 50 of the same skin in different color variations, I just wanted to match the last.fm website.

I like the black background behind the MR tabs. Very nice.

This skin intrigues me. I generally prefer darker skins, but I come back to this one quite often.
Thank you.

Nohitter,
I have no idea how much work it entails, but is there any chance of getting an update of your skins for MonkeyRok 5.1? Trixmoto seems to have fixed the wonky tab issue in 5.1. His classic_tabs skin works well, but none of your recent releases of MR 5.0 skins are handling tabs correctly.
Thank you.

Seconded! Having a dark MR 5.1 skin that supports tabs would be great.

That's wonderful. Thank you.

Wait.... you're saying the MonkeyRok skin is updated, right?

Edit: I just answered my own question. You may want to update your post to make it clear that you update the MonkeyRok skin. That way there won't be anymore confusion if someone comes along that is as stupid as I am. :-?

Thanks again.

is it possible to add the ratings to the player.ini?
I already tried to, and copied the [Rating] stuff from the Glided theme but I got an "Access violation" error :cry:

Can somebody help me please?

You'd also need to add the rating star images into the player.mskn file.

ok, I added the images and even all the other stuff that might be related to ratings (i copied it from the glided theme using the theme editor) but it still won't work :(
I get the same error again and again.

Awesome awesome skin. I really do love it out of the 20+ i've tried now. I have a feeling this will become my default skin.

Here's my two cents on possible improvements:
1. biggest problem i have is that there isn't enough contrast between the light blue and the white background when making selections within the track browser. I know color is a matter of taste but this seems like a functionality issue if you're having trouble seeing what's being selected. At a bad viewing angle it is nearly impossible to see that anything is being highlighted (or at around 2:30 AM while i'm sleepily writing this).

2. Volume and track selection within the player is a little difficult to click on. It seems like it's a little too narrow on the small monitors out there.

Other than those two issues (minor issues at that) this is a great skin to me.
