hi,
i am working on my second winamp skin.
It's only a wip and i have to work more on it...
I just want to know what do you think about it,
what do you like/dislike.
(best viewed in 1024/768 screen resolution)
I hope your comments can help me to make this skin
better.
thank you.

i've gotta disagree with matt... i'd say it's too crowded, but that's my opinion... also the fonts, song ticker and stuff look too small...

on the upside.. is that EQ pre-sets on main window??? 'cause if it is that'd be cool....
the "digitally imported-techno -vocal trance- deephouse- (6:11)"..... hmm now that i've written that out it seems more like a songs title, the time gives that away, oh well might be something to consider... EQ pre-sets on the main window, just the more common obviously...

anyhow, keep up the good work, it might not be to my taste, but who am i to say what's good, bad or ugly

I think his timer is on the top there. The timer might be as you say the time of the current song. I don't lissen to DI, but lots of these radiostations send out the time with the songtitle as it's streaming endlessly.

Looking good I think, lots of details, but are there any buttons on there? Personally, I'd like to see the intensity of the red details cranked up.

Pulsedriver:

there is the time on top, but that's the current/elapsed time, the (6:11) is the total lenght of the song, if indeed it is a song...

chronics:

i think it's important not to have static or non-functioning objects out number the functional objects....

It looks pretty good, but definetly needs some more highlights. Make it more like the top left of the skin in terms of highlights

hi,
thank you very much for your comments.

carlosp & matt_69 ::

I agree you like it

Vengent Angel ::

Yes the "digitally imported-techno -vocal trance- deephouse- (6:11)"is the songtitle
(it's just a example).
And the timer is on the top.


rpeterclark ::

Actually there're only the cbuttons(previous,play,pause,stop,next)
at the bottom left, (they will be more detailled "onmouseover").
Ok,i will work more on the red details.

hammerhead ::

right,i'm gonna try to highlight it more.



Just a little precision:

i have worked hard to get that results,because i'm not
so good at photoshop (i need to practice and experiment more).
it's the first time i try a design with full details,so i'm gonna try to update it the best possible i can.

I'll take all your comments in my mind.

thank you.

Thumbs up

hello,

my english is so bad
alors je vais te repondre en français

il a l'air trés bien ton nouveau skin.
un peu trop sombre à mon gout, mais les gouts et les couleurs ...

et je constate que tu as plus d'inspiration / de temps que moi, car je piétine toujours avec mon skin.

à bientôt

bye

matt: that's all well and good, and yeah i've seen some bloody crowded ones, just saying that if it was a little less crowded it might be better, i'm sure i'd be more inclined to DL it.... just a suggestion... IF it were me, the first thing i'd do is make the display font larger, but i like a nice big display...

well its not bad at all, but i think its too busy ,i think its got to do with the size "everything looks smaller thatn my cursor" or the way the grafic trick the eye, i kind of have to get close to the monitor and look hard to find anything on it, im still searching for the control buttons, but it looks cool and its very detailed,you can tell alot of hard work whent in to making it, i just dont think i can use it.

It's because i only use breed skins and they inspire me a lot,
but i try to make this skin the most single i can.
Thank you for the comments, I take them as a compliment.

Good, because that is how it was meant to be taken I like the old pixle style of the old breed skins (and yes, I understand they arn't the only ones who skinned that way), and am excited to see it in a modern skin form.

I hope to see it finished with some neat little animations here and there to really make it come to life

this skin reminds me of zero-wing. Yes, that's the old video game that inspired the "All your base are belong to us" song. classic.

One thing though: the kbps and khz labels get lost in front of that gradient. perhaps it's better in the other colors?
