I might actuallly finish something that I start

Not being able to think of a good name, it is known only as 'red bar', for now.

It is very minimilistic, with the current size (zipped) at 19 Kb, and windows smaller than my pinky (at 1024 x 768).

still to go:

finish eq
make standard frame
skin right click context menu
more windows, like songticker, volume, seeker e.t.c

It may or may not have color themes, I have other ideas, and I'm not sure I can make ether good color themes or any of my other ideas.


So, heres what I've got so far...

P.S. no DTA, sorry, that means jaggies.

The songticker is going to be a seperate window, but that script sounds interesting.

I've finished the eq, and had a go at the songticker. Unfortunatlly, something bunged up my copy of winamp beyond repair, any skin I try to load it says it is meant for an older version of winamp, even the default skin. So, I don't know if the songticker works or not, it doesn't seem to work (it may have been the reason for my problem, be warned) but can someone please check, and if it doesn't work help me figure out why? Thanks.



(very bad grammer, must pay attension in english this year)

ok, so after completly reloading winamp, and then loading my skin, I'm now having the same problems again, so I think it is the skin.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE LAST BETA, IT COULD BE A TIME BOMB.

Herm, I had the skin and the zip, with EXACTLY the same names in the skins folder, could that have caused my problems? I've done it before and had no troubles, and they don't go away when i delete the zip so yeah, werid.



Anyway, made myself a start menu button with the same theme and my avatar.

I fixed, don't know what was wrong. I moved all the elements into one seperate file that gets included very first, it worked.

Now I need to find a way to center the song time.

I ripped apart some other skins and found out myself. Thanks anyway.

There probably won't be any more updates or betas until I figure out at least something about the standard frame. I would still very much appreceate any feedback from anybody.

Thank you everyone.

Ok, I've done the standard frame, some color themes and some general tweaking.

I would be happy if people wanted to make their own color themes. Sorry, it doesn't work with the wa3 alpha that has the color theme maker thing. (if you want recognition for the presets you make, add your name to the preset name, eg some preset by someone.)

well ever since I came back to the forums sometime in december, I've been using them to see what an attachment is without bothering to reading the extension.


By the way, the screenshots not as updated as it should be, the standard frame has the cbuttons vertically on the left hand side, and a minimize button underneth the close button on the right hand side.


Also, does anyone know how I could tile the standard frame background instead of having it strech?

Ok, new:
*advanced visulisations, thanks to Bizzy D's (I think) animvis script.
*more color themes
*color themes window, theres no switch button so double click on a theme to use it


Still to come:
*more advanced visulisations
*more color themes
*a window that displays the actual time
*system colors (if I'm not too lazy)
*system elements(if I'm not too lazy)

Enjoy







(the text not comeing back after a failed attached file upload really pisses me off)

I know, I put it on and put it on always on top, then I couldn't find it.

I could make it smaller. :P

Could someone with a windows higher than windows 98 tell me if theres any DTA, at all, cause there shouldn't be and I was just wondering if there was.
