Fusion AMPdeck readable update

I love Fusion AMPdeck but its color scheme for the Winamp Library makes the library almost unreadable:

Dear Wildrose-Wally, will you consider updating Fusion AMPdeck with more contrasting text background and font colors for better readability, please?

I have experimented with several background color - font color combinations and found that a color scheme like this would both match the playlist and library colors with Blayde's main window colors and enhance readability:

The normal text background and font colors of the playlist and the library are taken from Blayde's text.bmp. To enhance readability, the text background color of selected items is a lighter shade of the normal text background color rather than a lighter shade of the font color. The font color of the currently played item is a very light, whitish shade of orange/brown.

I have also played around with the colors of other library window components but those above are the most important changes to enhance readability.

I am attaching the modified pledit.txt and genex.bmp in case you find them useful in a readability-enhanced update of your Fusion AMPdeck skin: pledit-genex.zip

Respecftully,

Ariszló

I am out of skinning, and so I won't update anything anymore. Besides, since there is no skin database, there would be no place to put the updated skin. Feel free to update the colors to anything you like.

Thank you very much, Wildrose-Wally! Both for what you did to keep Blayde's Fusion skins alive and for your permission given to me to update Fusion AMPdeck.

And thank you, Aminifu, too, for the encouragement.

Sorry about the problems on 1001skins.

I have been working on it; tbh though...it is a love hate relationship. I love the site, but hate having to work out fixes...as I have been hacked numerous times...popular site I suppose.

I will fix it at some point; once I figure out the problem.

Fusion AMPdeck readable update

This had another update sometime back in April this year.

Since this board is almost dead anyway, why not bump this again to help those that still own the original 2 Discs version of the game?
