This has been in development for a while...although i'm starting to run out of ideas. Thats where you come in ^.~
I could use a few ideas for the 'lcd' areas - for example how to set everything out lol - and also a few ideas for the playlist. Plus any ideas for details I could use on th emain player...basically...any ideas are welcome ones
I'm dead set on finishing this one, no matter what. Even if it takes me the next year - im gonna do it, cos i'm sick and tired of not finishing projects I start.
LCD-wise, I recommend areas of bold colour (darker than the background LCD colour) with details set in the current LCD colour. So light-on-dark-on-light. And curvy edges where possible. When I say dark I don't mean by much. keep it subtle so the frame doesn't appear to be conpeting with the LCD for attention.

Ooo! I likes it! The border's quite unique and I like the colour scheme. The main titlebar needs a bit more shading, though.
As for lcd ideas, I have none. Sorry. I'm quite tempted to suggest trying something other than an lcd, but my that's because my brain is skewed. I see something theatre/stage like in this skin. I also think I see something pseudo-Victorian in this skin too, but I can't even begin to explain that one. Have you tried different (corresponding) colours in the dark purple areas? Perhaps doing that would suggest alternate textures.
But an lcd wouldn't be bad. I agree with Atmo - don't go overboard.
I quite like how the eq worked out...anyone else like/dislike it? have any other ideas?
o m f g - simply go to the skins section on this site, download a skin...then double-click the .wsz file (the skin you downloaded), it should automatically go onto your winamp..if you have it installed.
Did you want the eq-bars to go *through* that semi transparent thing? In that case you should give them more contrast or darken them, right now their colour is too washed out and they seem to be under the thing... if you know what I mean.
Have you considered making the skin less symmetrical? not too much, maybe just change one of those comma-shaped things in the main or something like that.
Many who live deserve death, some who die deserve life - can you give it to them?
Then be not so quick to deal out death in judgement.
Cleanup: Only just started on the main part - the purple/greay block was jus so I could line things up properly
flatmatt: its jus a basic eq bar, the 'plastic cover' was jus somethin i used to make the eq + main seem less bland..plus I used somethin similar (or tried to) in the original kyaela (i should have a working version soon anyway)
Chuffle: wtf? lol
lol has anyone got any ideas for the cbuttons? (theyre usually the very first thing I do too...its just I havent got around to do them yet and im totally out of ideas at the moment)
flatmatt: I'm starting to see what you meant now rofl - i think I jus got a little carried away (and also, ive forgotten almost everything about skinning and where stuff goes n things lol) Ill sort it somehow though..
Heres another update for you - started working on the cbuttons and main now..
Lol, still trying to figure out a way to do the cbuttons...tried two different ways so far...one with the hatch type thing, and another with a round button underneath a white cover...
its really hard lol.
(wish I'd done em first like I usually do instead of leaving em...:S)
