looks like a cool idea! I'm not good with the scripting part, so I don't know how to make the drawer, but there's a lot of other people who knows how to do these things here, so I'm sure they'll help you out :)

I have a sketch too, I'll post it asap :D
It looks alot like a MiniDisc player (mine)
The shape looks nice, original :)

kinwashi: your probe was my inspiration (spelling?) about the
drawer (eq drawer) i thought u knew how to do drawers!!
but i remember!.... youve got it from rhinotrip.
can u contact him so he will help me with it?
no*name: post it! maybe ill get an idea for the playlist
or thinger or volume! (any ideas for the volume knob?
because as u see, i didnt knew where to put it. :confused: )
for all skinners who understand: download my sketch, and draw
suggestions for the volume knob and post it here!
26th October 2001, 11:44
Wow.. Good idea... :)
26th October 2001, 11:44
in the meanwhile... ill do the rest of the skin!
ill show progress (may take couple of weeks, but if everybody
is counting on me.... ill do it)
everytime u all feel like it... post suggestions, flames :D
im sooooo rookie at skining, that ill be bugging all the time
so understand me and help me!

actually alot of the scripting in probe has been rewritten by Lucas. But I think drawers are "easy" if you know scripting, so I'm sure a lot of people on the board can help you.
26th October 2001, 11:52
can he help me?
maybe ill do the visual first? so later
he'll know what to do?
and second: what crucial files i need to get from
the default... because i want to get started!
thx in advance

kinwashi is right, drawers aren't that hard to implement now that there are groups. I'd be pleased to help you, but I can't right now. I gotta finish Epsilux. Anyway, it's only a sketch, don't worry about the final result. Draw it and when it's done ask for someone in the board, there are quite a few talented scripters in there.

thx Luc L! i feel sooo much better now!
ill draw it.... but first....
todo list: (in the real order)
1.)background + details (theme unknown)
3.)checking for hoirkman's editing program
4.)editing my skin (locations of buttons and other moving parts)
5.)drawer: making + scripting (havent found a scripting partner
though its long time 'til i need one :D )
6.)last scripting + checking +retouching

Maybe you do the volume later on, you'll get ideas when you're working on it (at least i do) Maybe a round knob (like in every stereo)

theres is a hell of lot of blank space below the song info bar/display - whats that needed for?
28th October 2001, 17:55
At least a SCreenshot...
Its far from finished, I'm still busy with everything... you can see the one drawer slided out and there will be like this on the left, bottom and right...

listen no*name.. im forced to stop my project for some re-planing!
this skin is sure tough for me. :(
ill do something more simple than what ive started
i think it will be all cartoonish for a start to see how
i get started with it all.... then, ill do more complicated
it will be done a week or two after the next release of winamp will be done so maybe it will be good for me!
(more options to explore and implement)
one of them i would like to explore is the "groups" thing...
because i heard it is THE THING for skinners!
maybe theres a thread here talking about this! ill search!

Ok it's a bit late here and I need some sleeping tomorrow school again :)
Maybe you shouldn't stop go on! If everything in your life was easy would it be fun?
Well I had a test skin before to try out stuff (anyone seen that "cube" ? it suXors :)) It's cool that you try out yourself with the groups, but for one thing I can say, groups are easy as pie :) well you'll see...
But don't let it get you down ;)
good luck with it

good idea mountain, but I don't prefer so much rounded skin
my favorites are skins like Lounge

:up: Looks good. But why don't you use a play button which changes to a pause when busy playing, and changes to a play button when paused. You can check out the MAKI Skin (http://www.winamp.com/skins/detail.jhtml;$sessionid$M2WEFH4LOK1QTTN241HBCZI?componentId=123645) by Frisbee Monkey (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org). That could give your skin just a little edge.
Hope you could figure it out.

See that "2001?"
THIS IS SO OLD.
