whitepill, my next skin

here is a preview of my new skin. not sure what to call it yet, but it's temporarily called whitepill.

as usual, feedback will be very welcome

i've shown it on a dark background as that is what it will look best on.

that's actually the seek bar, but you've made me aware of a problem. no volume control.

d'oh!

I just love the simplicity of that. It's beautiful. You could put the volume control on the top as well.

thanks for all your feedback guys! thanks ertmann for the volume control idea, i didn't think of doing that

i didn't think of the toggle buttons either becuase i never use them, but i'll think of something.

this skin looks very cool......make sure the other windows are skinned though (I like full skins rather than just a main window)

its not so much the skin design and its simplicity but how visually apealing it is.

Graphically complex skins are beautiful in their own right. The are nice to look at but hard to use.

Clean, small and simple skins are great because they are nice to look at, and allow Winamp to easily sit at the top of your screen with AOT on, and still have full functionality availble. In other words, very usable.

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

quick update

ok, i've got the main window pretty much done. still nowhere to put the toggle buttons yet.

been pretty busy last couple of weeks with work and stuff so i haven't had as much time as i've liked to work on my skins (bluecog still needs a lot of work and a better name! ).

if anybody would like to see what i've got so far with this one, let me know.

Of course we want to know

Maybe you can add loads of color presets, that would rock

hehe, ok, i'll get a wal packed up in the next few days.

and i'll definitely think about the colour presets thing, let's face it, it could do with a splash of colour!

I don't think he has released anything yet. On a different note, nice avatar profbobo. Alkaline Trio is one of my favorite bands. We haven't seen anything from you yet, you could make an Alkaline Trio skin.

ok, here is a wal. as usual it's not finished, the main window needs extra bits and the components, thinger and eq aren't done.

damnit, too big to attach...

get it here -> http://www.danbee.co.uk/download/whitepill.wal
