Should I do some new stuff

I've been getting pretty bored lately, but I don't know if there's any motivation to do another one of these tiny tiny skins

While there was clearly a complete lack of interest here, let's say I decided to make a new skin, I wonder what it should be about? There are a couple newer Ace Attorney games that I haven't made into skins yet, or I could make another Zelda skin (Minish Cap, probably). Or I could do something completely different, maybe another photoshop-centric crazy skin. Suggestions welcome

Working on this. I don't have the old PSDs, so I decided to redo all the buttons and overlays from scratch this time, to give this one (and the next one) a slightly different look.

Only slight changes here. Now almost everything has a shadow, though, and I like that look.

But... (there's only an objection) not sure about the font you use at titlebar.

I like it. It's very "Candy-Cane". It seems to work well with his aesthetic.

Yeah, not totally sure about the font in the main window, but it's meant to look like the font in the logo. I think it looks nicer than any of my previous Ace Attorney title bars, anyway.



I'm getting a bit of "writer's block" so to speak with regards to the playlist and other expanding windows. Might try to do something different from what I did with the previous skins. Not sure if I'll be able to create a "scene" at all.

I hear you there man, I've hit a similar block on one of my projects, I'm at the point now of just saying 'lets re-hash something off another window, that'll "do" '

Trying to make properly tiling windows for these skins is so... unrewarding.



Work so much on a pattern and it just comes out looking like nothing in particular

Yep. It's a recurring trait in my Phoenix Wright / Ace Attorney skins.

http://www.winamp.com/skin/phoenix-wright/151786
http://www.winamp.com/skin/ace-attor...for-all/160046
http://www.winamp.com/skin/ace-attor...lations/221959

It's basically the only kind of in-game animation small enough to fit onto a Winamp button, and it fits well with putting a character into that empty EQ space, so I've worked it into each skin in this series. This is probably the one where it looks the most natural so far.

Similarly, there's no balance bar in this skin, but if you slide the balance all the way to the left or right, the girl's eyes close. First time I've done that, really.

Edit: Oh, here's something to talk about. I decided to make the playlist stack buttons using icons instead of words. They came out pretty weird, but I think anybody familiar with Winamp's functions should be able to figure out most of them. They're clearer than when I use Mario characters or something, anyway:

I like the icons a lot, they are really well done in fact.

The chose of play button on the playlist is great, and this is the first skin where I've seen you put some sort of signature on it.

It all fits in too well. Keep it up!

EDIT/ I just noticed a lack of scan lines in the main and PL just a thought but you might want to remove them from the EQ or add em to the other windows? Seems to pull away from the skin a bit.

I'm not sure about that kind of "bottles" on playlist titlebar. They don't have the black outline that the other pictures have.
And sorry for my bad english, hope you understand anyway.

I think the bottles just have less of an outline because they sort of have a glow to them that overwhelms the outline.



Good point about the scanlines mike. I was thinking of how in the game, the lines usually show up on the bottom screen but not the top screen, but I think it doesn't make as much sense in the context of the whole skin so I will probably just take that effect out.

Well, finally made those tweaks. It only took what, two years? Some combination of factors, not the least of which being the two new Ace Attorney games coming up, inspired me to work on this again.



Finished the shade modes, added a cursor, wired up all the buttons, colored the vis, and removed the scanlines. I'll leave it here for a couple days for feedback before I submit it to the site.

...is the site still taking submissions?

The skin is spot on, I'm glad you pulled those scan lines.

As usual this is just awesome, good job man!

As for the submissions I think I still have one waiting to be published from a while ago... I'd check but I'm not even sure if I can recover my account.
