View Full Version : just for the fun of it, sonique 2 a1 emulated
19th October 2001, 01:56
this is quite funny... I deserve no credit at all for this skin, it's only a port of sonique 2 alpha 1. It was done to check if it was possible to do something like that with wasabi, and it can be done :)
version 0.0.1 http://jamintx.***********/mantis001.zip
- a quick release
- port status: 50% done
have some fun (screenshot attached)

1st off, where the hell is RT at? Is he preparring some big come back
with all new versions of his skins or something? knocks on wood
Pretty nice for an early version of the skin. Needs a lot of work (Im
not even gonna start). K33P ^ the G00D work.

Wooohooo... Good work... ;)
19th October 2001, 17:24
like the idea, but you need to work on the scripting - this can be done better
19th October 2001, 17:34
speaking of Sonique Alpha, anyone have pointers on where I can find it? Sorry for the dumbass question, just that I haven't found any places yet
19th October 2001, 20:44
here's a new release for your eyes only
- Optimisation release:
* reduced the bmps from zillions to 4... speeds up the loading session
* discovered relatx,relaty,relatw,relath ... speeds up everything during the session
- Added ML button and AVS button
- Added "File" menu
- Skinned the lower bar buttons in components
When you click on a component, it pills up on the others (which is a normal behaviour) but since I'm not using toggle buttons, it might gets all messed up at some point but I'll figure out something to fix this sooner or later.
When you resize, it relocates the window to (40,40) ... I can't do anything until lone fixes getTop getLeft...
Things to add:
Crossfader, loop, shuffle... after that, I'm done.
19th October 2001, 20:47
oh and just to clarify one thing: it is fully resizable (and by that I don't mean re-scalable, which can be done though)
19th October 2001, 21:01
19th October 2001, 21:10
If someone could mirror this please...
19th October 2001, 21:47
19th October 2001, 22:22
thanks sawg, I don't have any good place to post my skin and if, by request of users, you mirror some, wow life's just great :)
19th October 2001, 23:01
Just a note: for me the tripod server was much faster than the ASU
server, and I live in Phoenix! (Hey swag, do you love your
This skin is gonna kick ass when its done. It looks like nIRV really
kows what he/she is doing. This otta piss off those soniquers...
20th October 2001, 02:21
I am sorry but this doesn't look like Sonique 2. you need a lot of work. i have just took a screenshot of Sonique 2 and i am attaching it.....hope it helps you.
20th October 2001, 05:14
I guess that's why I use 0.2 as the version number... :)
And, no, I'm in no way trying to piss sonique users nor the authors LyleWilson. And I'm a he ;)
20th October 2001, 06:09
I am sorry but this doesn't look like Sonique 2.
Uhh... yes it does (it doesn't not resemble [double negative!])
Also for fun I changed the AVS button in your skin. Like it? Tell me
what think and fill free to use it. (see attached 75.2kb image [sorry
I had to keep it in .bmp and I'm not sure if it will work if you just
replace it since I did change the image size])
20th October 2001, 07:07
New version... btw sawg if you want to mirror the newest version, go ahead, I would appreciate it :) -- attached a new screenshot --
0.3 "getting closer" http://jamintx.***********/mantis.zip
- The controls region (play, stop, etc.) now centers itself
- Back 5 Sec, Next 5 Sec added
- Gave another touch of blue to components (playlist, ml, etc.)
- Clean up with mantis.maki
- Re-introduced sysfunc.maki (status interacting with buttons)
- Changed the avs gfx for the one gave by LyleWilson... way to go!
- Changed the bottom right resize gfx using the original one found in sonique2a1
- Moved to .png ... transparency support needed soon for gamma control
* note: lone fixed getleft and gettop so as soon as b2 gets out, you will resize and the window
20th October 2001, 08:53
nIRV, I updated your skin a little bit:
*Updated the skin.xml to include stuff about it
*Removed those un-nessicary .bmps to make it smaller (not?)
Hope it helps and thanx for using my image (Open source skinning)
for some reason it is bigger in file size???
Is it possible to have just file menu transparent?
20th October 2001, 22:58
When the ID3 info is really long it keeps on going to the right hand
side right off the skin (see the pic).
21st October 2001, 03:32
I succesfully added a crossfade button to this skin (it doesn't really
crossfade though) but when I tried to add a shuffle button I got this
stupid bitmap thingy. What gives? Take a look at my code:
<bitmap id="player.toggler.crossfade.disabled" file="player/controls.bmp" x="0" y="155" h="11" w="13"/>
<bitmap id="player.toggler.crossfade.pressed" file="player/controls.bmp" x="0" y="166" h="11" w="13"/>
<bitmap id="player.toggler.crossfade.enabled" file="player/controls.bmp" x="0" y="166" h="11" w="13"/>
<bitmap id="player.toggler.shuffle.pressed" file="player/controls.bmp" x="14" y="155" h="11" w="13"/>
<bitmap id="player.toggler.shuffle.enabled" file="player/controls.bmp" x="14" y="166" h="11" w="13"/>
<bitmap id="player.toggler.repeat.disabled" file="player/controls.bmp" x="14" y="166" h="11" w="13"/>
Hey nIRV, I just the code straight from the default skin xml so why
doesn't the crossfade work? Did you remove something? See the attached
image for the bitmap thing. download my version http://qhobbes.***********/mantis.zip <-- there
21st October 2001, 03:42
a) I added the repeat, shuffle, crossfade support in the skin already so don't bother
b) I removed the crossfade,s,r code from sysfunc.maki in version 0.3 but reincluded it in 0.4
new version sooner or later...
21st October 2001, 03:56
0.4 "Now my default skin"
http://www.public.asu.edu/~abarber2/wa/mantis.zip (thanks sawg)
- Shuffle, crossfade, repeat can now be set, wee! (the three buttons in gray)
- Fixed the text size problem (thanks LyleWilson)
- Couples of cosmetic and minor bugs fixed here and there
this version has really everything I wanted from it, enjoy.
21st October 2001, 04:00
oh and here's a refreshed screenshot too, the 3 buttons on the lower region are the shuffle,repeat,xfade controls...
21st October 2001, 05:04
thanx for the thanx but no thanx, the text still scrolls all the
way over to the right when you have it at the smallest width.
k33p ^ the g00d work
21st October 2001, 15:43
hmm, now it's really fixed, sorry :) ... wait for another release or replace the "songticker" params by this in your player-normal.xml:
<text id="Songticker" ticker="1" display="SONGNAME" x="20" y="-52" relaty="1" w="-40" h="20" relatw="1" font="System" fontsize="14" align="Left" bold="1" forcefixed="1" color="0,127,187"/>
22nd October 2001, 01:55
0.5 "maybe taking this history thing too seriously"
(sawg if you want to mirror it... :))
- Did a little thinking on the way I should show pl, ml, avs and
it resulted into a new button (the x after the avs button) that
will close the current component and show the background while
the other will not toggle the component but show it (so hitting
the playlist button twice won't show and hide it anymore).
+ it closes all the other components thus making resizing faster
(before you could have had the 3 components opened at once, useless)
+ you're sure it will show the playlist, not close it if you opened
it, then opened another component
- ... didn't find any for now :)
- Fixed text size, really!
new screenshot attached, won't update anything until next friday. Someone emailed me saying the skin wasn't working... unzip this file in /skins and it'll work (the structure in the zip is /mantis/skin_stuff_and_directories and not /skin_stuff_and_directories that's why it's not working...
22nd October 2001, 09:46
hey, progress! :)
Nice work man!
It's looking more and more like the real Mantis..
Maybe you should fix rounded corners next?
Anyway, great work
23rd October 2001, 00:25
Glad to see you finally fixed that text proplem. I just got
thing to say "Lay it on me mommacita!" (Yes, I know your a man
but I just felt like saying "Lay it on me mommacita!") Can't
wait for the final version. Are you gonna insert the sonique
logo into the bottom left just like in S2?
23rd October 2001, 01:46
nice work nIRV. Real nice.
23rd October 2001, 02:58
sawg - thanks for the hint, zip file is now 200k, 50k less, wouhou
lunarboy - thanks :)
lylewilson - np, and yes I will add the sonique logo, as soon as I think the skin will have the status to deserve it.
ThePlague - thanks... I have a rounded-corner version of mantis my computer but I don't want to release it because there is one major limitiation that wasabi currently has and that removes the cool dynamic-resizing that you currently see. And rounded corners are cool but not worth any sacrifice.
working on eq... cool things coming :)
26th October 2001, 20:32
- the window has rounded corners, just like the real thing (see screenshot)
- I introduced the eq! It's really exciting:
+ it works just like mantis eq by dragging your mouse down on the eq
+ it pops out of a drawer, etc. (see screenshot again)
+ it resizes with the whole window
- the whole window is 100% resizable just like before
26th October 2001, 20:41
Looks nice. :)
Hmm, I remember seeing some Sonique2 screen shot long ago, it had some orange colour in it... Is this the one you're making for wa3?
27th October 2001, 17:22
naaa, the orange skin was in the first demonstration, a small little window with basic controls on it...
27th October 2001, 17:40
Well... Some colours would do good to this skin... :)
27th October 2001, 18:41
That's what the Gamma controls are for ;)
It looks verry cool already!!
28th October 2001, 13:10
Well, if it is supposed to be a clone of Sonique2 alpha, then it really shuldn't be any other colors than there are now...
