Yes, the dimensions in those cd bitmaps are slightly off. And the reason for this oddity is quite plausible: I used a 500x500 pixel-cd-reference-png and completely neglected the proper width and height of the cd case. Additional thought was the fact that 500x500 pixel size is a very common cover dimension on the internet, which I totally wanted to keep in order to avoid cutting, resizing, let alone cropping of the downloaded cover bitmaps.

So let us make some corrections here. According to Wikipedia:

- CD's dimension is 120 mm
- CD jewel's dimension is 142x125 mm
- CD cover's dimension is 121x120 mm

How do you like it now?

P.S. Someone please confirm, that those dimensions are (on a standard 96dpi monitor) approximately correct. I work on a FullHD laptop and all skin components are smaller.

The booklet sits further to the left, as do the bits that hold it in place. Somewhat like this:

The upcoming version 2.3 of my skin is getting ready.

I am very happy to announce that I found a REPEAT A-B script on the forum made in the year 2007 (!) by Egor Petrov. THANK YOU! This feature will be part of the TRACK BOOKMARKS window. Another small change is the background color of inactive song in the Playlist Editor which is dark red now.

And I decided to use just CD jewel bitmap. I got problems while implementing both of them (jewel and sleeve) into the context menu and had to cut it short.

Stay tuned!

For those of you who would prefer a smaller version of the cd case you can use the window scaling option in the context menu. It works surprisingly well!

Hi!

I can't believe that i didnt found this skin earlier! Seriously its the best skin i ever used.
But i have one or two suggestions/wishes for a upcoming release

1. For God sake can you please adde some, or at least one, not so virulent (not sure if this is the correct word) color to the Spectrum Analyzer?

2. Maybe im just too dumb or my English isnt so good as i thought but i took me about an hour to find out how to change the Colour of the VU Meter
Sure there is a "Scale" Button but for my understanding it means that i can resize something! And after i tried everything else to change the colour i finally clicked the Scale Button and BAZINGA i could change the colors

And the last Point: Is it possible to turn of the "New Title" message, that appears with every new Song, somewhere?

And thanks again for the great Skin
Have a nice Weekend

Greetings, ReeferMan

And which one would suit you? Black bars on black background? Switch to Classic, which is somehow subtle.

Ok, I could have put SCALE COLOR in there, but I knew that Winamp users are smart guys & gals, they would find out pretty fast what is behind the SCALE button.

Do you mean the Notifier? Look in Options -> Quinto Black CT -> Notifications -> Never Show.

Good Question
Something thats not so bright, maybe the green you use for the VU Meter Display

Please remember that I will never ever succeed in satisfying ALL OF YOU. And since you seem to be the only one complaining about it (all other wish bright colors!) I am going to keep it that way. Sorry.

Then you might want to check out R C G by yOnez: it is less complex than Ebonite and less buggy than clearOne.

Thank you for your suggestion Ariszló, I do remember having this skin on my XP laptop years ago. Too bad that moving the Playlist Editor around the desktop shows empty areas which are caused by the synchronization process as already seen in Ebonite:



I made yesterday a request to the developer team to make Winamp's standard windows "alphabackground-compatible". If we are lucky, we might get it with the upcoming 5.8+ update and adding shadows or creating transparent frame would be a piece of cake. For the time being I am going to postpone altering the standard windows in order to have shadows.

That might be a graphics driver issue. I tried to repeat the issue in both Windows 10 and XP (the latter in VMware) but I didn't have those white stripes.

I'm not that optimistic. "This version is not an ongoing project" and Radionomy's CEO, Alexandre Saboundjian says that on desktop, "the war is over".
