View Full Version : Zipping the skins
I've made my very first skin to winamp 3... As I'm developing it I had it in a subfolder in the Skins/-folder of WinAmp3. And I thought to myself that I could just zip the folder and rename it to .wsz in order to use it as a zipped skin in winamp.. But it doesn't work!!
Do you have to zip it in any special way or somthing like that!?

don't rename it to wsz, keep it as a zip or rename it to .wal
also, don't make the zip look like this:
it has to look like this
did that make sense?

In other words, don't put a skin folder in the skin zip, right? The wal acts as a folder. (If I understood)

thanks for clearing it up ;)
Yes, that made sense! And that did the trick!!
Thank you lakitu42 and Plague :)
But just out of curiosity - what's the thing with .wsz and .wal?
What's the differences between them?

wsz = Winamp Skin Zip
wal = Winamp Abstraction Layer
the only difference really is the name..
they are both renamed zip's.
But I think that essentially they needed a new name for the Wa3 skin zips coz otherwise it could cause confusion..
