View Full Version : Blah, more crap from me: LCD skin
4th September 2002, 07:33
well here it is ladies an gents...this is kinda my jumbotron skin...after like 3 days of just messing around with stuff randomly
Also, the frame on it is from my Black Ice 3; its not a rip if its mine :D (besides nobody likes that skin anyways :mad: )
4th September 2002, 11:38
I really like it! the red, orange and black clash (but in a good way)
In my opinion this is your best so far. I didnt really like all the old gamers stuff, it was cleverly layed out, just not really my style....
4th September 2002, 11:55
i love it.
your killing me b/c your skin design was the direction i was thinking about for the dj pro skin for wa3 i'm doing.
as you can imagin i'm happy to see its looking good as a wa2 skin.
i'm going to have to make my desing a bit different now (i also hate doing something that has been already done).
keep it up.
give me more!:D
4th September 2002, 11:56
oh ya, make the postbar black area slimmer, its too fat now
4th September 2002, 13:28
OoooOOOoooOohhh... That's damn spiffy! :D
4th September 2002, 18:34
I like the look of this one too. :cool: The red and orange match and the black contrasts nicely with them and (just about) matches the grey. I'd like to see the grey edge being given the 'double ridge' that the red/orange areas have to help the consistency of the skin (it looks slightly out of place to me, maybe because it came from Black Ice 3?). Definitely want to see how this skin turns out. :)
4th September 2002, 19:56
:up: Reminds me of volcanic colors ^_^ I like the combination.
5th September 2002, 02:49
yay! a cool skin...hmmm, ok I feel with yas peoples about the posbar and titlebar stuff...I thought as much myself.
6th September 2002, 16:26
UHUH! As is..... I want it. It is awesome! Please hurry and email me when it is completed. It is less detailed than most popular skins. But sheesh. This is COOL!
6th September 2002, 17:37
ouch, i was going to say something intelligent, inciteful and ...something but my head seems to have exploded into a world of pain and i can't think.
6th September 2002, 19:03
Hey, I like that. Orange is always appreciated. :cool:
6th September 2002, 19:34
well I gotta go to work now, but maybe I can get a beta version done by tonight...if I don't fall asleep.
7th September 2002, 01:29
i like the colours!
(thats right, i cant think of anything original to say:D)
8th September 2002, 06:42
well here is the MAIN and EQ done up in full...
next post will be the WSZ, ok :D:up:
8th September 2002, 06:49
and a WSZ for folks to enjoy.
8th September 2002, 11:35
The frame adds sooooooooooo much to this skin. The fusion of the clashing lcd colours and the earthlike brown frame is just gorgeous. Congrats. Hope to see some more of that frame. :D
8th September 2002, 18:05
niice, and agreed, love the framework!
8th September 2002, 19:47
well, the frame is just that...a frame.
I'm not planning on it having parts protruding into any of the "LCD" components, if thats what you mean skinme.
8th September 2002, 20:05
nah, it's mere presence satisfies my every earthly desire
8th September 2002, 23:15
heheh...This one just got out of the pool :igor:
anyways, no this is an idea for a tiny WA3 skin, and its basically constructed the same as this skin, but tiny :D
8th September 2002, 23:48
That'd be good for the winshade mode, make the main larger though.
8th September 2002, 23:53
great. now I just need to learn coding :P
Anyways thats a back-burner project, I am still workin on the WA2 version for the most part.
8th September 2002, 23:56
It would be a nice skin in itself, in that it's small (unlike most WA3 monstrosities) and not your standard brushed metal.
9th September 2002, 00:02
It's too small, would suffer greatly in funtionality.
9th September 2002, 01:08
I downloaded the wsz file, this is awesome. Keep up the great work. I will keep checking for the completed version. I really dig the equalizer bars. Thank You
10th September 2002, 23:46
The little WA3 skin looks quite nice, but it's just too small and squished to be functional. At first glance, I was like, "Wow, that looks cool!" But then I was like "That would be really hard to use." Plus, the colors, though cool, aren't the most high-contrast things in the world, so it doesn't help the compact design.
But the WA2 skin's great. :D
11th September 2002, 05:09
well the WA3 thing was just me fooling around...only took me like 5 seconds to hack the WA2 into a tiny WA3, and besides, I don't know how to code for WA3 :| and my friend who knows XML at least wont code for me :mad: . I may finish the rest of the skin in a day or so.
11th September 2002, 06:49
wa3 coding is easy, aslong as you dont start maki.
kewl skin btw
(pfffeewwww, i almost accedentally started a new thread)
11th September 2002, 13:20
Thats, right, step right up and be amazed at the finished product. if you like it. This is another fine example of why I don't get enough damn sleep :D and I am teaching myself how to code for WA3, and its not as hard as I figured. anyways, 1st, a screenshot;
11th September 2002, 13:21
and the skin itself. By the way, the playlist and minibrowser are done up in courier new, so if you don't have it for some odd reason it will look different.
Tac-Man really needs some damn sleep now, he has work later
11th September 2002, 19:58
Yay! It's done! With Mikro and MB page! Yay! :D
11th September 2002, 20:48
/will download skin when I got Winamp2 installed on my spiffy new computer. yay! can you say 18inch viewable screen? can you?
12th September 2002, 00:54
Very nice work. Good color selection and cool idea with the eq bars. Overall, a very kick ass skin. :) :up:
12th September 2002, 00:58
hey, I can't find any, but if anyone wants to point out graphic bugs, do so, cause I wanna submit this sooner than later.
12th September 2002, 06:41
k i dunno if that is a bug or not lol, have a look
12th September 2002, 10:43
...shit...k me fix in a second.
BTW I am gettin the WA3 coding, at least the regular stuff...now just to start in on the MAKI or whatnot they call it.
20th September 2002, 14:14
so, any thoughts now that its done?
oops, I thought it was published
not in santiago
20th September 2002, 17:00
Nice skin. Great job! :up:
I like the overall look as well as some of the smaller details, especially the Posbar shape and the shuf/rep & on/auto buttons. It has a bit of a retro flair, methinks.
Two things I would change:
1) make the border of your Megamen in the Mbinner black instead of white (or even red)
2) the titlebars/winshade bars. They are very well made and look great on their own, but I don't think they blend in well with the tri-chromatic theme of the overall skin. They might if you were to introduce more metal elements in the windows, or make the metal borders thicker, but as for now I just don't think they're consistent.
But that's just me. :)
20th September 2002, 18:03
its kinda a chromy glow thing I had going on. I use basically the same mbinner in all my skins, and just change the color accordingly.
thats what I get for being different d:
23rd September 2002, 04:49
by the way i just d/led the full skin and i have to say great skin...just thought u'd like to know
keep up the good work
23rd September 2002, 06:24
Yup I like it.
Looking forward to see your 1336 WA3 Skillz
23rd September 2002, 16:59
why is everyone waiting for a wa3 skin today?
PS cool skin :D
23rd September 2002, 18:25
Not waiting for a wa3-skin, just preparing to face the doom we all must front in the future :D
24th September 2002, 09:31
hmm...I'm thinkin something really tiny, or round. and only skinning the main. :D :p ;)
24th September 2002, 10:21
something like this?http://members.lycos.nl/simonsnowflake/ideas/idea1.png
25th September 2002, 08:42
not bad. Will this become a skin someday? :D
What I don't like about wa3 is that it's sooo much wooooork! :D
25th September 2002, 23:29
YAY! its actually reveiwed this time.
Get it right here (http://www.winamp.com/components/detail.jhtml?componentId=121672) while its hot, folks! hot off the press!
apparently it was well liked (5 stars :D)
and stop stealing my thread with your evil winamp 3 thoughts simon :P
26th September 2002, 06:54
congratz on your rating.
To bad the screenies are alway's fucked up. The realy should start using png, or JPG without compression
26th September 2002, 13:18
agreed. why don't they use .png anyways. I know some people can't see that type of file. hmm, maybe supported in new version of browser? I know linux supports it already...
or install the support with winamp itself :D
(skin on front page, w00t. top user rated)
26th September 2002, 21:01
Hehe - congrats! I personally loved the contrast between the earthy/rocky borders and the LCD, well earned ^_^
26th September 2002, 21:46
Nice... shame you didn't skin the thinger ;)
26th September 2002, 22:09
hmm? its not wa3 silly
