This page is to help you through skinning MediaMonkey and it's objects.

First of all, you need to download ThemeEditor 7. It's required to edit the .mskn-files which MediaMonkey uses to draw windows, objects, text etc. There'll be three categories; one for the .player-skins, one for the big ol' "Theme.mskn" and one for the other objects which also is customizable. We'll start with the player-skins.


Player-skins

Player-skins is defined by two files; the .mskn- and the ini-file. They have same names, but different extensions. There are three types of players; Player, FloatPlayer, MicroPlayer.

Player is for the player skin when the monkey is maximized with all functions activated. It can not be transperent.

FloatPlayer is for the mini-player skin which can be transperent.

MicroPlayer is for the tray-area in Windows. This is mainly a control-skin, but there are indications that it'll be extended to show album-information when you activate a button in the tray-player.


Main Theme (Theme.mskn)

More information to be added.


Other objects

On the to-do list of the MediaMonkey-team is wrapping of icons within the .msz-file.
