I never get n e good help on forums ever so i dont know why i even bother trying. Well here I go...

I have made some amazing GBA Skins for the VisualBoy Advance Emulator and it looks great for that program but now i want to Winamp it. The problem is i dont know XML and I tried using the tutorial but i just couldnt figure it out. If n e 1 knows how 2 code good or knows n e 1 who does let me know by emailing me at TheCloudOfSmokeGraphics@hotmail.com.Here's a preview to encourage n e one to help:
or

Also heres a link to my DeviantArt page so yall can check out or download my current VBA skin http://thecloudofsmoke.deviantart.com/. If u do not have this emulator but just wanna check out the full size pictures in the skin pack,just unzip it and look for the bmp files with the names gameboy advance sp 1x or 2x

Thanx

Also, Yes I did read "Want someone to make a skin for you? READ THIS FIRST"

And yes, I gave up hours, days and weeks (3 weeks straght to be exact) to make something for total strangers who i have never met before with my skins (not winamp though) just for the fufilment of knowing that ppl really enjoy the stuff i worked hard on. (im not really good at painting or decorating houses)the psd and buttons have basically already been created.

Are you allowed to be rude on these forums?

anyways

love the top pic now that would be a cool winamp skin!
the 2nd one although good wouldnt appeal to me as a winamp skin, but i cant speak for everyone

but as a primary focus I reckon the top pic would be the skin to make into a winamp skin imo (out of those 2)

cool stuff

There was a nintendo SP skin in the database, it appears to be unpublished at the minute, not sure why, maybe it was a time limited promotion thing.

thanx every1 for replying.but ive seen that GBA SP pic b4. if you compare the actual GBA SP to that skin you would probably notice that isnt how the actual GBA SP looks like.i think that was a prototype shot.
I wanted to make a more official looking skin.

That would b great krckoorascic i would really appreciate that!!! As you should know though, you would get much deserved credit for helping. thanks again every1.

Nice graphics there. I used to have the old GBA SP skin, I remember being kind of dissappointed with it because:
A) The "real" buttons didn't do anything because the control buttons were all on the screen
B) It didn't use any game graphics on the screen, that would be more fun
C) It didn't have any color themes to make it look like the other SP colors.

Hopefully yours is better.


Who is the milkman? What is the purpose of the goggles?

well, if all goes right i will put play functions on the gba buttons but i dont know where to put them. i want them to go in the most likely spot. for example the start button would be for play/pause and select would be stop, but im not sure. if n e 1 has a suggestion on where they should b or what u would want to see in this skin let me know. as for the colors, i would basically have 2 start from scratch to make more color schemes and that would be extremely difficult.

play buttons could go on the 4way button pad

dont think you'll have a prob with putting buttons in, but obviously it would be cool to keep the 3d type perspective thing you have here with anything that moves make it look real

That would be a 1337 idea for a skin, I can't offer anything to it because I can't code worth crap, but I'd like to see it done

Well, if anyone decides to do this, here are my ideas:

-play-pause/stop/forward/back could be the d-pad
-A and B could be PL and ML buttons
-Start and Select - Start to open a drawer out the bottom, Select to change the mode between EQ, Color themes, whatever else
- Screen would almost have to logically be Vid\Vis, but maybe also and option to change it to the MB?

hmm seems you like ya quit b4 ya got started :/

erm you've already got the player licked, wont take long to get a few extra bits on it for buttons etc...

then thers only the std frame to do and a few extra bits
more effort needed if ya go for som custom vizzes tho

would be a shame to not get yer gba into winamp
