Project hAxOr - Graphic Geek Wanted

Let's try this once again, only this time, without the drama.

The attached image is a project I've had on the shelf for a while. The majority of the coding is done already, I just want somebody to create a few extra graphic elements for the shade mode, redo the standardframe, and possibly re-design the main window; as the source images used to create it were not my own (although what you see has been done by me). This is a very functional player, but between the extensive coding and Graphix editing, I just ran out of gas. If somebody wants to help make a killer modern skin, then drop me a line, and let's get crackin. If you want to see more, I have a working version available to those who PM me.

It has somewhat of a dubious history around these parts as well...

So which one are you Jimmy, digitalhigh or flipper?, or neither...

/never mind, answered my own question with an ip check, I do so hope we are not going to end up going back down the same road again.

because the later pictures are ripped from the origional. They just stole the pic, and don't have the .pds and didn't make their own.

icegod its because as dlink said its just been ripped off the net so many times that the quility has been taken down many times.


don't know whether this should be done but me thinks that this thread should be closed...no point it going any further if its a rip.

Guys, it's obviously ripped BUT, the reason for pixelations is not that the ripper didn't had the PSD, it's because he crashed more the PNGs that were in the skin.

Other than that I see that in the screenshot don't has DesktopAlpha enabled, or he tried to rip the background PNG of this skin and to manualy delete the shadow under it with a magic wand in Photoshop.......

Ripping is a bad thing to do no matter what, and specialy from people that they have the will to create something unique but they are so lazy to do this and try to find "other ways" to steal someone's elses effort and time.

Be Unique and creative and fuck the rest, just be yourself and show your best side of yourself and not the bad, like this above I see......

Sorry, but no, it's not ripped. I used to be Digitalhigh, but got pissed and quit. You can call me a thief, and I'll admit that the grafix on the main were created by flipper, but if you read my original remarks the main is the part that I want to replace. The ss is crappy because I snapped one in paint quickly. Read Jones's comment again, and you'll understand that I'm not a thief/ripper. I don't want to start a fight, I just want somebody who will do the graphics for my skin, as opposed to me coding somebody elses skin. Thanks. Any comments outside of "Sure, I'd like to help." are most unwanted and unwelcome.
