Another Work In Progress

Well, I've got like 5 skins going at once. But this one
kind of hit me. Here is a couple of pics of what I have.

Normal View

.
.
Full View

.
.
I'm don't think i'll be leaving the crossfade buttons and stuff
the way they are.

I have no clue how to make the drawer thing with the eq and thinger
drop down. So unless someone helps me, I guess i'll just code it
the way it is.

Is anybody interested in me finishing the last one I posted with
the brushed aluminum. If not then i'll put it on the back burner.

Looks great! although the pl ml etc buttons arent much readable, maybe make them in that left drawer (with that drawer not to big)

I like that texture in the window

Thanks Naamloos, like I said in the post above. I don't think i'll
be leaving the buttons like that. I think they look ugly.

I like that texture too. It's called dirty screen.
I learn most of my photoshop stuff here.
I'm surpised it's not in this list of where to learn for PS.

Anyway, I was thinking that If I ever learned to script. I would
put the AVS in the drawer on the left.

pixelpusher..... unlike everybody else
id like to say couple of words

1.) great work!!!!!!!
2.) suggestion: make a color change to the controls on
mouseover
3.) the avs should have its own window
and the volume + something else
should be in the left drawer
4.) do a winshade (though id say take your time)
5.) good luck and thank u for your effort


p.s.

i want to skin, but cant!!!!!!

The AVS wants to be on top so you can't do it in an underneath drawer It looks verry cool Pixie And I like the set up as it is now...

Cool Thanks Guys..

I really appreciate everyones comments.
Can anybody help me out with scripting the lower drawer?
I don't have a clue how to do it. I just put the screenshots
there to show you what I would like to do.

Till then I think i'll just start coding the xml for a normal
layout.

King.. You could give WA3 skinning a shot.
If I can help get you going or anything at all.
Send me an E-Mail at the button below.
Thanks again for all your comments.

I was just thinking. If someone wants to swap help.
I would gladly do some graphics for anyone who helps
me script this thing. It doesn't have to be for skins
either. I can make graphics for webpages or a banner
or even an animated gif for an avatar. Just a thought.

Deal. Once you chop your graphics up into .pngs, you can send it to me and I'll do the drawer. I'll write the xml, too, if you want.

How about making me a cool sig in exchange? Something chromed and slightly 3d... Take your time (on your skin and the sig). No animations in the sig though, please?

Cool beans.. Gonzo. Man I appreciate it.
Should take me a few days to chop it up.

When you said sig, Do you mean one for the
forums here? I'll make several for you and
send them off. I'll be sending you an E-Mail.

Cheers.

Thanks, these are the only forums I post to regularly. And can I request that it be small enough for me to fit one line of text underneath it (for my links)? Everything else I'll leave to your artistic discretion.

i like it, i love how you have set out the bottom drawer!
The avs is good where it is, i like that idea of no border.
I recon the top 'window' bit needs some work, maybe lighting effects or something, a border, the only bits that need work is that blue texture, i just dont fancy it, and the buttons, would they look better beveling in instead of out?

Heres the link to my other skin. It's not finished either.
But I have a working player of the first screenshot in that
thread. The blue and white one. The brushed aluminum is
on the back burner till I get simplicity done. Which is the
skin in this thread.

great skin!
I like it alot and I too think the AVS looks good just where you put it. It won't slide in under the player yet, but I think it will in Winamp3 beta3 (or atleast I hope so, I think I heard something about it) and since my skin aswell depends on this feature, I would say, go for it and just wait/hope it will be in the next beta.

O.K. the skin has taken a new turn.

Dirty Amp Lastest ScreenShot



Well, I thought the other design was a little boring.

The player is all coded except the top buttons.
menu/minimize/winshade/close buttons.

Guess I'll start on the winshade layout now.

BTW.. It's supposed to look Dirty.

Pixelpusher....

Sorry Plague, I thought I replied to you.
I hope they make so I can have the avs like that.
It would follow with my thought that everything should
be right there. and not in another window.

Thanks for your comments..
Hope you like the changes.

Talking Download.

I uploaded the player to my webspace.

All new version with 7kb animated laser sig.

Download Here.

Updates coming. Right now it's just something to play with.
For some reason after I zipped it, it doesn't use my super
groovy y2kboogie ttf. Bummer.. Whats the deal.

Anybody want to script a straight volume and seek script for me.

Pixelpusher..

<edit>That should be version .01 </edit>

TTF

Put it in a folder. You mean like make a folder for it
and call it from there.

The drawer isn't there yet. But it will be.
In the mean time i'll be skinning the winshade
and starting to dig into the studio components.
Because everything else is in the drawer..

Glad you guys like it.

I like that 'simplicity' animation.
the shuffel button gets all 'cut out' like when pressed.

overall good small skin. these winamp2 sized skinz are really good. but i cant yet see it being dirty



hey, how did you make your truetype font not see through? mine doesnt have a colour, i can just see the desktop behind it

Thanks, I made it in gifconstruction.set 27 frames, then I had to extract manually and and then cut and paste into a animation file.

Yeah, I'm looking around for a tut to make it a bit dirtier.
Right now it's just kind of dusty and I was trying to make it
look like somebody had rubbed the window part with an abrasive.
I think I succeeded.

I'm assuming that your running xp/2000 with desktopalpha on.
I though I read somewhere around here that was a bug or something.
You could try turning it off, if thats the case. Just to see if
that is it.

hey why dont you make the area there where it says simplicity open and close the thinger? it would be un obtrusive and add some functionality to it.

Thumbs up update

Winshade added with double-click funtion on the titlebar.
Cleaned up pressed state on the cluster buttons.
Working on a different color version.

Download at the link above. ^^^^^

?Question.

I wanted to add a drawer to the shade mode. Is that possible?
I used your script Gonzo, It compiled with no problem.
But when I add it and the rest of the stuff for the drawer
winamp won't even open my skin. It just says, winamp has
performed an illegal operation.

Heres the script, tell me if you can see anything wrong.

---------------------------------------------------------------

// never forget to include std.mi
#include "../../../lib/std.mi"


Global Group drawergroup;
Global Layout mainLayout;
Global Int drawerstatus;

System.onScriptLoaded() {
mainLayout = getContainer("main").getLayout("shade");
drawergroup = mainLayout.getObject("drawer2");
drawerstatus = 1;
}


// .. drawer management ..
// you could check x and y to define a single 'clickable' zone on your group
// or you could also use an external button to make the drawer slide in or out, etc.


// if our drawer is closed, make it slide
drawergroup.onLeftButtonUp(int x, int y) {
if (drawerstatus == 1) {
drawergroup.setTargetX(19);
drawergroup.setTargetY(32);
drawergroup.setTargetSpeed(0.75);
drawergroup.gotoTarget();
drawerstatus = 0;
}
else {
if(y>34){
drawergroup.setTargetX(19);
drawergroup.setTargetY(1);
drawergroup.setTargetSpeed(0.75);
drawergroup.gotoTarget();
drawerstatus = 1;
}
}
}

I don't see anything wrong with it, but if you want to send me what you had defined in xml, and the relevant graphics, I can probably figure it out.
