WMC Beta 3

Hey, guys...

I figured I'd let you all play with the WMC Skin Template. There is much to do but, hey when won't there ever be. In this light my hope is that you can add to the richness that is WMC Based Skins. ~

With any event I have tried to document it as best as possible, though obviously there is room for improvement.

if you have changes please submit via github...this will keep everything in synch and properly attributed to you for your input.

WMC Beta 3.5

Now with a Themed Media Library. Still working on it; but at least this will give you an idea of the direction.

Well, the ML and Playlist are nearly complete. Now, on to the Video|AVS|Queue and figuring out why I have two Equalizer listings...

Ahh the beauty.



Here is Beta 3.51a

PL Stretching Fully Functional.
PL Doublesize Mostly Functional.
PL Customizations - Mostly Complete (Missing PL Shade)

ML Stretching Fully Functional.
ML Doublesize (Future idk why???)
ML Customizations - Complete

Video - In Progress
AVS - In Progress
DoubleClick - AVS (Main Windows - Coming Soon)

Minivis Presets (in progress, more types mirrored, fire, blaze, speaker, glow (heh))

Most behavior is fully functioning. There are some clipping issues but, I am working on those slowly. Overall 99% of WA2 Functionality is present.

only downloaded out of curiosity and can only seem to get 3.56 to load correctly when extracted out of the wal file i.e. just in the skins\WMC_ADOElite folder. though you've also done the skin files inside a root sub-folder thing that is known not to work for modern skins.

The WAL File works on my ver of Winamp regardless of the location of the 'graphic' files. I've never heard of root folder issues before.

if the wal shows just a sub-folder when viewed with everything else of the skin inside of that then it won't be loaded properly as the skin.xml won't be found.

i don't ever remember that working with such skin files (not seeing anything in the code logs going back over the years to do with it) so i can only go on what i know off the skin loading code and what was happening in front off me.

One suggestion: In your WMC/WCL page, I would post some example images of what can be done through your "engine", so far it´s too much text and theory, not too advanced skinners may be frightened by that.

Besides, maybe you should post a list of the "small improvements" you talk about there.

In time ... as I have just come to pretty much finish the skin...I will be working on several other skins to showcase what you can do with it.

1. A SUI
2. A Slim version (*Think shade view)

WMC_Noistromo

I am currently working on this and a few others. Though, this one is a priority...as I have been working with a new collaborator. Obviously, a slight difference with previous skins and previous WMC Skins.

---
Remember, WMC means essentially a Modern Skin fit to classic spec's. I'm not going into it but, much more support is available for anything that I want to do.

~

So far this is looking pretty good.

Other than, this here is Update 3.0

These eq slides are perhaps, just place holders...I only like the centers...(vertically) of each. I may do a bit more 3d metal or perhaps some variation of what I have now.

I have to say one part I don't like is the top of the PL/bottom of the EQ. It just kind of drops off. Can't wait to see what you do for that.

This is pretty much final...though, obviously the eq vis is on the bottom and the buttons will be staggered.

Eeh? What? REALLY? And why you didn´t started with that!? =D

EDIT: Returning after excitement (and re-thinking..), does this means that I can use an image-background behind playlist text?

(yes) Positional References for images are supported. Images Under Text / Over Text / Around text / Pass Through (Alpha) or opacity sets are all supported.

Additionally, you can do animation layers that are set by images (ordinal positions (like volume.bmp)) or by mask like winamp 5 skins.

Define your text area with a group and set the group with an image.
or just place your text and underlay/overlay by adding a line in the xml. In this skin you will probably see examples of that for the pl and eq.

Hmmm... this is strange.. I´m a bit lost:

01 (WMC) Skin´s graphics are changed? It is quite different from the preview images. Basically seems like glass pic is gone (wich obviously I couldn´t modify with color editor).
02 Did you forgot to include the .m files within WMC or was on purpouse?
03 Menu options within "Modern" are kept from Winamp modern? Or it is supposed to do something?
04 Besides, I´m getting various Winamp 5.7 beta (Win7 HP 64bits) errors:
Album art window not showing
"About Winamp" loads, but it´s empty
Sometimes it throws me a Notifier maki guru error (sorry I don´t have more info)

About the PL Bg image :
I don´t know what you mean by "Positional References"? I only know to add images through layers (and as properties of some objects, like "layout"). I went to pledit.xml and play with lots of thing but couldn´t get it.
I guess I´ll wait to see how you do it in this skin.

the .m files generally are in their own folder.
the preview image hasn't been updated in awhile.
the glass overlay on the original is available but, not really used.
not sure what you mean with 03.
Album art does show but, not in a window. The album art is set to a very low opacity and placed on the backgrounds of some windows. (this was to show ordinal referencing of images i.e. position of images as layers.)
04 - a beta in a beta probably won't work to well...Though, I'm using standardized functions. (WMC is BETA and Winamp Beta). About Winamp (was removed because, of some issues with Winamp 5.5 - just didn't remove the menu)

The notifier maki guru error??? I have no idea; though I'd suspect it is the status text for play pause stop.

I can add to WMC Ado Elite an image that will underlay the current pl text. As this skin will take significantly more time.

In the attach you can see what I mean by Modern skin menu.

Also, you can see where I moved the layer you said (albumart), and how it is still behind the playlist item´s background.

so, well I got them...but, the text area (technically a list doesn't have a setting to make it transparent...so, I am reworking the area...to support transparency as the background-color. ) This will likely mean using the query component rather than the list component...

Will get back to you.

Great, I imagined it would be hard, so far there isn´t too many examples of it.

I can only think of G10 (http://sari-inc.deviantart.com/art/G...namp-100727696) and Komodo (http://www.skinconsortium.com/index....oad&itemID=125).

But those have a "builded" playlist, not fully functional actually (i.e. you couldn´t drag n´drop or change track´s order).

Victhor - I'm close, I've changed up the pl to now use the query component...however, there are some issues with ordering and layers...I'm working on that now...between 1001skins, work and several other sites and skins.

I'm close to releasing WMC 5 ~
