(i think Plague is taking the piss don't you? )
let me tell you a story...
I have a lovely old machine who's called Oscar (why i can't remember but that's is its name) and he is now an old old machine but runs a treat still. Oscar likes these fancy new Modern skins but can't run them as well as would be liked
So one day when browsing the Winamp forums he came across a post about the K-Jöfol player and it's skins. He tried it and these skins were lovely but ran really well so he thought...
... why not get DrO to make a plugin to support these skins in Winamp and DrO went, 'yeah why not' (the gullable fool that he is) so...
I'm the mug who's starting to work on this plugin. There is no time scale on any public/internal releases since i'm still really at the early planning and R&D phase of things especially on how to integrate a 3rd skin type into Winamp without breaking other things (as well as in the current light of things making sure that the skin extraction is secure and all that
I'm doing this since i personally feel that K-Jöfol skins fit the gap between Classic and Modern skins that is needed ie light weight freeform like skins.
All i ask is that you don't pester me on this (since graphics is a new field for me and should make this an enjoyable learning curve [yes i'm mad
]). When things are ready then they will come (screenies, preview builds, etc)
So in reply to an earlier question "so is anyone doing it? you?" the anwser is yes
/me goes off to do some more R&D on this
