Pay more attention to what people post here... The author of the skin posted a link to the latest version, here's the link to the .wal file.

Best place to find new versions of this skin is this thread, since this is where he will notify us about changes and new versions of the skin...

first of all stop the bitchy attitude.

i know what he posted. but what if the thread disappears.

I wanted to know where to get it without coming to the thread.

And winamp3 skins website lacks skin versions. wa3 skins have scripts in them, and it is more important to know the versions now than it was with wa2.

Patriotic Color Themes

Well, I know there are enough color themes for this skin, but.. who can resist? The skin is simply wonderful...

I was playing with MMD3 color themes and created this series, which I called "Patriotic", with EIGHT themes based on the flags of some countries, including mine Some themes are -- I think -- really good and usable, the others are here just for fun.

Current themes are:
Patriotic | Brazil
Patriotic | France
Patriotic | Italy
Patriotic | Canada
Patriotic | Germany
Patriotic | USA
Patriotic | Portugal
Patriotic | Argentina

Here are the Screenshots...

To the patriotic color themes; not to diss other people's countries but damn some of those colors are ugly

Also, I found what I would consider a bug in this skin...when you click on one of the drawer opening buttons (in the winshade modes, both of em), they return to the not-activated state until the drawer is done sliding out, then they go to activated....same thing to close the drawers.

I noticed that you don't have the display show "Next" and "Previous", but it displays all the other buttons, any reason for this? I saw in the script the lines for this but they're commented out...why??

Also.....why can't I drag the display in regular mode?

man I really like your skin


anyway we could get the playlist implimented into the winshade mode like the other things are. I love how they have animations coming out of the main bar and then when I click on playlist its just kinda BAM one big window somewhere else on the screen.



Keep up the GREAT work

i noticed that the always on top stuff doesn't work on the default mode and the vertical mode ... and i think you should do someting bout the play, pause etc buttons on the default mode.. they look not in place because some buttons have words below and some don't.. i'd prefer without the words...

Just a post to tell this skin kicks ass!

I really like both the winshade modes and the xbox|red color theme !

This skin shows you've thought a lot about the usabillity before you created this skin. This, combined with great scripting and great graphics, makes mmd3 the only skin I used for longer than 1 hour. It's the first one I actually like better than the default one (all skins are nicer, but this one is nicer and easier to use) !

love the skin specially the new vertical mode and the new volume knob script, about it when you click somewhere int the volume knob it slowly goes to it and show the increasing\decreasing in the ticker but in the bass an treble the ticker only shows the last value, maybe just happening to me???.
one more thing i used:
<ColorThemes:List id="main.colorthemes.list" x="0" y="0" w="165" h="100"/>
in a skin i'm working on and the list appears(always on top as usual) but it is not showing the themes it just have not items inside, maybe something else i should be adding.
Thanx

MMD3 is lush, but the one thing that always bugs me is that the other windows don't snap to the same width as the main player. You hardly notice it but if you stack the componants up then there's a 5(ish)pixel gap down one side. That's just nitpicking tho...

Ok, so I had mentioned earlier if Tray Icons cud be added to this so that when WA3 is minimized to tray, we cud still use it.

Now, I'd like to request if you cud take a leaf out of MC^^^^ book and include the feature like in the Enhanced Default Skin. This cud be put into the Vertical winshade mode so that we cud put it always on top and then move it right on top of the screen. I cud then go about my work with this hidden inside unobtrusively (spelling???) and then move my cursor about that location to have it drop down.

PS: This is still the BEST

congrat to bartibartman to that amazing skin! (i've already written you an email ).

now i have another request ... i use the biggest font for songname - and there's simply not as much space as i would like ...

so i was thinking - would it be possible to redone layout of the display? to put visualisations down between controls, song's text on the top and fiddle around with the rest?

maybe you could put two or more layouts in the skin and let the user choose the that most suits their needs

thanx!

You should upload the newly updated version 1.20 to deviantArt and deskMod. The people there will surely love you even more.

The vertical mode really, really rocks! Even better than the horizontal one!

hätte noch nen request für die nächste beta
wäre es nicht noch möglich, die playlist ähnlich stick-like anpassbar zu machen, so fällt es bei mir stehts aus dem grafischen rahmen, da die playlist nicht oben neben der winshade mode version sitzt. solltest du also noch zeit haben, so ein feature einzubauen, wäre ich dankbar

I love this skin to no end but have a few things that have been bugging me.

One, the Playlist window doesn't seem to snap correctly to the right edge of the Main window if you dock it underneath. It comes up a little short.

Two, I'm one of the many Winamp users who like to dock the entire program in the lower right of my desktop. The problem is that opening the side drawer causes it to go offscreen. I like to mess with my EQ and change color themes a lot, but it gets on my nerves to always have to reposition the player in order to get into that side window. Maybe a "lefthanded" version of the player would be great, that would have the drawer on the left of the Main window.

Three, the color themes are overwhelming to browse through. Both in that there are (thankfully) many to choose from, and in that they have awkward naming conventions. Some more unique naming styles would be cool for the color themes. In addition, perhaps using the method from another popular Winamp plugin that allows for "Explorer-style" cascading menus would greater ease the task of browsing through the color themes. Then you'd have an expandable window for each theme category. Then you could pick a category and expand the browser to show all the relevant colors for that theme to choose from. Quick and simple instead of scrolling through almost 100 themes.

Four, the text could use some sharpening. It tends to be a little blurry in critical areas, like scrolling song titles. The entire core of the skin is absolutely flawless and gorgeous while the blurred text sort of clashes with the overall look.

In closing, I love this skin (as I've mentioned) and I'm glad to see an author who believes in addressing issues of loyal users instead of putting out a skin and forgetting about it. This skin is a hair away from being flawless and is in a league of its own as far as being the best skin ever offered for any program that allows custom end-user skins. I'm willing to bet this guy gets phone calls from Real Networks and Microsoft wanting him to design future versions of their sad multimedia players.

As a *constant* MMD3 user, I agree with those points. Especially the snapping width, and the drawer that goes off my screen. I like the amount of color-themes, but it's difficult to navigate through them all and many are similar, so perhaps a few less would be better. The text looks blurry because antialaising is on, but I'm guessing it looked too jagged with it turned off.

>I like the amount of color-themes, but it's difficult to navigate through them all and many are similar, so perhaps a few less would be better

I think instead of cutting back on colors, maybe just having more informative names for each would remedy that problem. Or that Explorer menu idea so we can have the color themes in seperate groups.

And is it possible for us to make our own custom themes? For example, is there a file that contains all the RGB or hexidecimal color codes? I noticed WA3 skins use XML, so could it be one of those files? I have a few custom color schemes I use for Windows and would love to match MMD3 to them using the same colors.

I disagree with Spork. What I do think though, is that the color themes browser does make things inherantly difficult. The problem (or so I've found) is that the scrollbar is just too big, there isn't enough room for it to move and as a result you have something like 1 pixel to move it for every 20 themes....hope u understand what I mean

that's not anything he can control..
But I do think that Nullsoft is aware of the problem and better scroll bars will come..
scrollbars like the ones in Windows where the scroller shrinks as the list gets bigger..

that would solve the problem
