Looks cool. I think it would look better if you could change the color of the screen so its more like an ipod. Have white screen for black ipod or something.

Great job! One of the few skins that I can customize just so for my desktop. Lot of thought put into it.

some nice features hammerhead
you might want to disable base opacity when dta off, otherwise its possible to make it vanish
also base brightness shows black base on the bottom and corners (no regions?)
more noticeable on night mode
night/day mode tooltips for both same text

no track info/jump to on songticker stickmode
no jump to on songticker mainmode
songticker display text in cfg window when toggling between day, night modes text box changes colour but text doesnt, so it can be invisible depending on which mode text is entered

Hey, love the skin, but is there any way to prevent the popup notifications from occurring each time a new song starts? I already have an extension for Firefox that does it for me.

there is ability on most skins to turn off the notifier and really the notifier imo should come from within winamp if the skin supports it rather than an external plugin that has nothing to do with the media application(not counting winamp plugins tho for example) such as your firefox one
most skinners dont offer support to turn off individual notifications for each state, its more of a all or nothing, that should be accepted and also often has been made to be inkeeping with the skin gui

I don't see any advantage in using a ff extension for a winamp feature, but if you want to turn it off, go to the options menu (right click -> options -> symplicipod -> notifier settings)

Really great skin, looks awesome, fonts in the display real smooth lookin. I get an error that crashes winamp that mentions 'cover.maki' when I try and listen to a shoutcast station. I switched off 'display album art', thinking that was the problem, but the error still occurs. Any thoughts on that? Thanks!

He was also creator of a project called PSIX. Also abandoned that. I think the guy is a nice designer but verry lame.

Really nice skin

Does anyone know if I can add other ID3 fields to the two-layer display by editing the XMLs? The presets only have a limited combination to choose from.

Thanks in advance!

Nope, unfortunately you can't add presets through xml, you're going to have to edit a script..

Go to line 200-ish of global.m, and you should find:

if (c == "a") c = GetMetaData("ARTIST");
else if (c == "n") c = GetMetaData("TITLE");
else if (c == "l") c = GetMetaData("ALBUM");
else if (c == "y") c = GetMetaData("YEAR");
else if (c == "d") c = duration;
else if (c == "b") c = BitrateText.GetText();
else if (c == "s") c = SampleRateText.GetText();
else if (c == "c") c = GetChannel(InfoLine.GetText());

you can add stuff to the bottom of this if you know how.. then recompile CmTicker.m and you should be good to go.

Hi Hammerhead,

Many thanks for the info. I've added

"else if (c == "m") c = GetMetaData("COMMENT");"

to the list, but having never dabbled in Winamp skinmaking, I'm not sure how I recompile "CmTicker.m"

Sorry to be a painful newbie

you need to use mc.exe, probably found in the root winamp directory. also you need to make sure the reference files (ie std.mi etc) are in place. sounds complicated, so i compiled it for you:

edit: wait there's more.. sorry about that. turns out you need to edit attrtext.m too:

txt.OnLeftButtonUp(int x, int y)
{
PopupMenu p = new PopupMenu;

p.AddCommand("a - n", 1, 0, 0);
p.AddCommand("a - n - l", 2, 0, 0);
p.AddCommand("a - l", 3, 0, 0);
p.AddCommand("a", 4, 0, 0);
p.AddCommand("n", 5, 0, 0);
p.AddCommand("n - l", 6, 0, 0);
p.AddCommand("n - y - d", 7, 0, 0);
p.AddCommand("n - d", 8, 0, 0);
p.AddCommand("(l, y, d)", 9, 0, 0);
p.AddCommand("(l, d)", 10, 0, 0);

int i = p.PopAtMouse();

if (attr != null)
{
if (i == 1) attr.SetData("a - n");
if (i == 2) attr.SetData("a - n - l");
if (i == 3) attr.SetData("a - l");
if (i == 4) attr.SetData("a");
if (i == 5) attr.SetData("n");
if (i == 6) attr.SetData("n - l");
if (i == 7) attr.SetData("n - y - d");
if (i == 8) attr.SetData("n - d");
if (i == 9) attr.SetData("(l, y, d)");
if (i == 10) attr.SetData("(l, d)");


txt.SetText(attr.GetData());
}
}

add the preset you want to both blocks of code and then try and compile, making sure std.mi is in the folder of the script.

Sweet

Also had to recompile AttrText.m to make it work, but comment tag is now a choice in the context menus.

Thanks again!
