Guess what

This monday I suddenly got the urge to make a skin.
So a started to messatound a bit and I have made quite some progress. I can't show you anything yet, since all of the work i've done on it is in autocad and nothing is placed in the right BMP yet. But as far as I can see from here it can work out nice.

It's nothing spectacular though, but i thought to make one last skin before winamp 5 hits the streets and concour the world.
Maybe I'll have something to show by tomorrow, but dont count on it.

hate the bleakness and boringness of the grey - love everything else about it, so far. (I think "eject" is a bit of a strange label to have though, since the button doesn't actually eject anything)

I like all the curves. Excellent design for the cbuttons. The only problem I see is that the rectangleness of the preamp kinda kills the mood for me.

Maybe if you just rounded the top of the preamp. That could work.

I'd call that button "open."

Bootty-ful.
The only think I don't like is the PL scroller. The brighter blue doesn't really fit...

Sweet!

A little more contrast on the playlist would be nice though.. just a tad.
What about Open for Eject and Hold for Paus.

Thats a good Idea Zwylle (the hold part). And I might even use flat's open suggestion. I shall also look in the contrast part. But i thing I'll hold the beautifull blue PL scroller

I doubt if the rounding will fit. It was rather hard to make something round in the EQ allready. but I sure take a look in to it.

Though it looks like an eject button on a stereo, it's function on winamp is not to eject anything but to open a folder and load tracks from it, so, yeah, I'd call it "open" or "load", I guess.

nit-picking and criticism:

-I'd make the little lights that show the shuffle/repeat status bigger, for better ease-of-use. Also, the ON/AUTO lights are a pretty good size when off, but look really small when on.

-eq/pl/on/auto pressed states are strange. The shadow changes colour, and that's it. It looks like it's trying to look physically depressed but failing. Maybe make the button darker when pressed, or one pixel lower, or both.

-I hope you label the stacks like you did the cbuttons

-I don't think that pixely stuff inside the nums/vis/text suits the rest. It kinda ruins those areas for me.

-I don't think the posbar slider stands out from the bar enough. I like the pressed state though.

-the topmost clutterbar button moves a bit when you press it.

-I think the \//\X buttons look great in the windowshades, but not so good on the normal MAIN. That is, they look good, but with so much open space next to them, it looks a bit weird how they're in that 'cramped' upside-down "U" shape. Try making the "\/" button rectangular like the "/\" button, but keep them all the same when in the windowshade mode.

-pressed states for the volume/balance sliders like the posbar one?

Ill look in to in .
The volume slider however cant change much since part of the vlumebar overlaps in the round display, and you know how stupid it would be if it would slide right through it.

like flatmatt said, the preamp needs rounding.

...and some color would be nice too.
