The skin itself is not bad, who would not like a basic black, it does look good on most systems.

However, the colorthemes are absolutely overdone. I went through a few, and wondered why the same theme was repeated with a different name.

I know, you will tell me they are not the same, but they are soo similar, you could have done it with a few less.

Yeah, I know the color themes are overdone but I just wanted as many color variations as I could find so I used the 140 web color names to start:
http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/wdnut...lor_names.html

From that list you can see some colors are missnamed and repeated, could have removed a few or renameded them but I just decided to keep it as is just so I could say I have the complete list.

It's a well-built skin but cliche. I mean there's a stick, boombox and an MP3 type of deal -- all done with black/grey metal/gloss with some type of LCD display. Nobody ever or has ever needed 165 colour themes, I don't even know why that was started. It makes a good all around skin, but nothing outsanding.

Hi Vica !

I downloaded your skin a few days ago, and I must admit that the remote mode is realy nice ! I like the way you can enlarge album cover and the sleep mode is a smart idea as well.

However, I think there are too much color themes, and since the vis has no gammagroup, the colors doesn't always maches...

Anyway, I think it is a nice skin. Thanks.
Keep up with good work !

I sign in just to say this: I don´t get it.. it´s been MONTHS since the last professional-look skin and you people receive this with nothing more than complains. It is true what you say about color themes, but I think that a skin so good, with fine details, full featured and really eye candy like this should be received with more enthusiasm than this..

Sorry if I sound a little bit "discourteous", it´s just that I feel is not fair to criticize a skin like this in the community when we haven´t seen one so good in months..

In MY opinion Vica, it´s an EXCELLENT work, hope to see another one soon! =)

I made the skin design out of boredom, so I never expected it to be the best skin out there. Just felt like we it was a skin that I knew I could use given how dark my desktop themes are.

Sure the color themes are overdone and duplicated, but such is life, just wanted to cover all the 140 HTML color names, just so I could say I did it.

For me, this skin is all about function with simple color matching. I always liked having a bass boost, simple album art, a mini avs that won't take up too much CPU time, and was easy to theme. And this skin did that. So I'm quite happy

So thanks for the support victorbrocaz...

I thought it looked really great and worked really well.
Vica made a wonderful skin here and was glad to see him back. He was one of the first old school Good o days skinners.
