I think it's time to unleash some pics of the beast growing..
Based on Skin Consortium´s wonderful skin Komodo, but with A LOT of changes.
A LOT of work to be done yet, so far there is a working top drawer with secondary functions (repeat, shuffle, etc), an extra-config window with graphics to add beneath controls (to improve readability depending on the background) plus a lot of minor tweaks aiming mostly to make the skin more usable on touchscreens.
CLARIFICATION: for those not familiar with the original skin, the background image is selectable by the user, there is up to 10 images you have pre-selected within the skin (and update it as you get tired of each).
Some extra HD versions on the attachments.
/// Credits: most background pics are from the great Beeple.
Indeed, progressing slow since I found myself constantly wanting "ambitious" stuff to do with it -I don't know why! hehe- like colorizing the new backgrounds according to the color theme or a bundlded cPro2 Reader which doesn't need cPro2 engine...
But after several hit and miss (delaying the release in weeks) I abandoned some of the ideas. I'll focus more on the "doable" stuff so I can get it out.
Here is last progress (re arranged lower buttons):
At 01 you can see a special section with a lot of info on current playing song and a very handy button (+) to send it to a specific playlist or library location. At bottom the dinamically generated row shows your saved playlists, one click plays it directly.
03 is a quick look to the mainly finished library/playlist with bigger / taller control buttons and search bar.
04 it's the new (bigger!) Config page with more pics to choose from.
Getting closer.. once I'm done with a top drawer (not seen on the SSs) and an extra settings window, I'll release a beta. Stay tuned! (whoever is out there...)
Looks like I have to settle in with your cPRO2 Styler skin while waiting for this beast to be unleashed XD. Best of luck Victhor, your skins are the main reason I use Winamp as my primary music player.
Well... good news and "bad" news... this took me so long that I finally got my HP Envy laptop with touchscreen (woohooo!!!) before finishing the skin! Lol..
The good news is also that the skin works like a charm with touch-only input. There are little things here and there but it's a really good start and it's quite more usable that other skins or even Winamp scaled up.
The bad news is that I will get a bit more obsessive with the final outcome so it's another delay on the horizon haha.. well, not really, but it will be more polished when it comes out, though I will release a beta soon.
