I enjoy this skin, but have one suggestion. How about cutting out that blue area at the bottom right, where it looks like the thinger is going?? and make that just transparent. Make the gray area in the upper right extend up as the thinger when a button is pressed. I just think that may improve the shape. Great start though!

id suggest you to make the thinger area as a complete shape instead of half a shape if you know what i mean, well, mirror the thinger area, if its more understandable

it looks awesome so far, i would only suggest to reduce the number of sections in the lcd, think it's rather divided right now

good work iPlayTheSpoons

I agree with RandomeiCarpit. The skin needs more work but you'll get ther.

"What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad." I have choosen the red pil.

fix the close, minimize, and winshade buttons, and the left/right thinger buttons, they dont fit with the others, and i like the others, so make them like that, and thats my 2 cents

hehe... when I saw your skin I thought it reminded me about something, but couldn't figure out what.
But now I know!
The handle to a chainsaw! Can you see the resemblance, or is it just me?

It looks great though, so keep up the good work!

Possible Bugs / Things that need fixed / Suggestion

1. Left thinger scroll only works a the very bottom of teh button
2. (suggestion) Is is possible to but the playlist in a drawr like teh EQ?
3. The timer display is broke for sogns logner than 9:59
4. Whats that blue space gonig to be next to the timer? /edit: of, vis, sry

Thats it for now!

/edit. 5. (suggestion) Why not put the vis where the thinger is and make thinger its own window? Most people don't like being able to see only oen thinger icon at a time, and when u make it go away there is just a blank space (which I don't like) so get rid of thinger there, make it perm vis space, and then you can make the song ticker and volume longer.

This is a valid point, I myself am having problems with it.

That would be cool, but desktopalpha does not work with the components.

The most valid. What about us people who watch stuff on our laptops on journeys?

Hope I've answered your questions, obviously I have not much influence of what will happen with them as it is not my skin.

heyyy. glad to see im getting some feedback (having a pic server helps, i think). anyways...to adress what happened:

the thinger thing...its cuz the volume animation is on top of it, just the transperent part...and if i make it ghost you can change the volume...if anyone knows how to make part of a png ghost thatd be helpful. i have no idea why the timer is doing that, maybe i just need to move it over to the right?

and for the suggestions: ill do that thing with the playlist, make it interchangable i spose though some sort of menu. i kinda like the thinger how it is, but i will probably make an external window for it too.

and to hammer head : id love to see some color themes for this, but you cant yet...i havnt assigned the gammagroups...on the next beta ill have it set up for colors

As for my suggestions...feel free to leave it as it is. It's your skin. I just rememebred another thread where people bitched about seeing only one thinger item in windows. IDK what HH meant by the desktop alpha doesn't work w/ components, but I think that means the PL has to either be square or a seperate window. I'm not sure. Looking forward to a beta!

It means even if the skin has desktopalpha enabled and the user has win2k/xp that the edges of the skin can't be smoothed. An example of this is mmd3, it does not have smoothing because it has the color themes in a window.

i figure why not take the suggestion if theyre easy enough too implement. i hadnt really thought about the playlist in a slider thing, and it could prove to be quite the bitch, both becaue of the DTA thing and that there isnt mch room in the drawer to work with...might have to forget that one, oh well

I think if you reworked the idea a little for the bored one you drew up that could be cool too, and beast is pretty much finished, right?

oi, so many skins...so little time!! the beast is getting pretty close to completion...really just the standard frame left, i think. however, ive just started coding another skin (a secretive project, but i think everyone will be pleased ) which im very excitied about, and about 1/4 of the way done. after all that is done, im gunna get back to aeschere here, and if nothing else comes along i wanna do the bored thing too. all this with school/work/skinning kazaa (), but itll all get done some day
