This is great and all, and I think it should be the new built in theme for Winamp 5.9 whenever that comes out, but I have one personal issue (eject button), a couple nitpicks.
(and just an aside note: the Oscilloscope Lines setting does the Solid view, and Solid does the Lines view)

Where is the eject button?? This has been my most used button as I use it to open files / enqueue files. It's a huge deal to me...

And I really like the thin bands classic visualizer in the old screenshot in this forum, however that does not appear to be what it actually looks like in the current version. I like the new look for thick bands, it's cool. But for thin bands, which I typically use, I really like the style in your screenshot at the top of this thread. Can that be an option?

Other ideas are smaller font options for the song title + move the visualizer to be under the song title?

Also I'd really like the window to just end after the Classic Visualizer. I don't need that extra stuff to the right to be there necessarily. Like this:

As Ariszlo said, it's an old thread but I didn't left old versions available so most concerns should be valid, sadly I lost the detailed reply I was writing (damn phones!) so I'm leaving it for later..

Take your time, there's no rush. Just for clarity, I'm using the latest version. : )

Thanks fort that, but I don't think we would ever see such version from these owners, they are focused on something else oter than Winamp sadly...
The future of Winamp is WACUP, you should really check that out, even a couple of my skins are bundled with it, so it must be good haha.

You're right! I carried that error from Bento (is on Winamp Modern too) . Thanks for point that out.

I'm not sure where are you seeing a smaller Vis, but have you checked the Vis Right click menu? The new mode I implemented on last builds is the last item there ("Classic Visualization"), unticking it should leave you with the "original" Vis (smaller but mirrored). Other than that I haven't changed that Vis from its first iteration (maybe I adjusted the width a bit to fix some artifacts but nothing big).

All these ideas / fixes are valid and goes along your personal taste, which is fine, but the purpose of the skin is not that so I can't just implement it.
Good news is I'm planning to set up a system to implement customization requests like these, some Patreon or Ko-fi setup so I can change things around or add features only used by some users (like the eject button, which is the first one I get it!). This way everybody wins, I can get some support to keep doing this and every user has a skin modified to his / her very own likeness.
