it looks good but i think the buttons should be closer and all on one side so it can be placed at the side of the screen. Aswell i think it needs more colour cos you when you read the text in the playlist editor it hurts your eyes, maybe its me at 1am talking....

PS- I have never heard of that music, what is it? Any good?

update... x2

pretty much done with the gfx i guess. if anyone has any suggestions about the design, i'd be willing to redo parts of it (except the main player buttons...i like 'em ). as for color, i tend to work in greys until i'm done with the layout. which i am, so i'm messing around with colors now. I lessened the intensity of the pattern in the background cuz it was kind of distracting, as was pointed out. Ah yes, and Ari Hest does kick some arse.

Total time: 1 hour 30 min

Will it work on win98, if not I'm going to cry.

I decided to make my own skin two weeks ago, and I haven't even been able to get the gfx yet.

The only things that could make this better is heaps of color themes and a download.

yeah, there'll be more colors. don't worry. I'll also eventually be adding the rest of the buttons and whatnot.

It's looking amazing premmidha!
Maybe you should lessen the shadows a little bit, they look VERY intense around the buttons in the last screenie. Also, will you have them all spin or something like that?
It was done in another skin once before and it looked so cool. Anyone remember the name of that one?

My two cents.

i don't know if i like this, but it only took about 10 min in image ready, so it's no big deal if i don't use it.

*click on me once and then press F5 when the window opens*

my host's stupid, so just follow those directions. wait for it to play through once so you can see it run somewhat smoothly the second time through.

Hi premmidha, I like ur skin, I must admit that remembers me my zpyral skin...the same layout but ur textures are very much better than mine!!
The only thing to say is that shadowing around the edge...I think u must reduce it...Just my opinion!
Keep up the good work!....amazing metal!!

I like this very much. Really clean looking. The animations look good too.

However... Like Tomato Face and Evil Pumpkin said, I think you should do something with the shadows. Perhaps make them a drop shadow, rather than an outer glow. (At least tone them down...) I don't really like the look of them now...

Needs to be a tad smaller and there is way to much shadow. Looks like you did a glow in black.

yaayy! this chrome is sweet! and green is just perfect! if my page wasn't down, i'd refer to there ... anyways.. methinks that the shadows are too much, too. takes to much cpu-usage and doesn't look that good.
but all in all it's great work!keep it going!

will this get coded? if i do it, it'll get done eventually. i have finals this week and don't have much time to work on it, but after this week, i should have time to re-learn xml and whatnot. you might remember my first skin, the crappy, pseudo-chrome monstrosity that still makes me shudder...well, that's the last thing i really coded, so it might take a while for me to piece together this skin. anywhoo, back to AP chem.

btw, sour altoids are nothing like their brothers, the altoids. go out and buy sour altoids. now!

I started skinning it(with my limited knowledge) and immediately hit a road block. Is there a way to make the background image invisible? If i make the layout image just the center, then it won't show the buttons. If I make it all one color, then the buttons show, but i don't want this(image below):



HELP!!

Make what you want to be opacific in the bg image. Then add 'desktopalpha="1"' (I think thats it) to your layout (enables desktopalpha).

the central part is not supposed to be transparent at all, but when i enable desktop alpha, it makes it semi-transparent and i can't change that with alpha values either. any suggestions?

well, you could make a light gray circle, same as the one youve got there just without all the effcts, and place it behind it.

to hammerhead: its a bit wierd in how it works, that bug. it seems to pick one layer and not do it to that one, or something. its wierd, but if you look on scythe, the wings are a touch see-through, but not the middle section
