Big Bento shade size

Hi all,
im new to Winamp skinning and have searched for 2 days for
help but dont found something.

My problem:
I wanna change the size of Bento shade mode,
because i wanna use it in my car with a touch monitor.
(my fingers are too fat)

I have changed the layout shade in player-shade.xml,
but the bigger layout only will popup, if i click on
resize on the right corner.
I think it has to do with the shadesize.maki,
but i cant change it.
I only have the shadesize.maki, not the shadesize.m

Could anyone give me the shadsize.m from BigBento
so i could search the problem by myself,
or is it another problem?

Thank you

sorry, but thats not what i meant,
i have tested the windows scaling at 200%,
but its not that what i would prefer.

I have resized the Bento Shade Modus, so it is a litte bit higher, but this, what i have done only is shown,
if i click on the resize button on the right.
(where you normally resize the width)

Additional i have changed the Song-seeker-bar to a new "line".

I have Mixes wich are 100min long.
Try to scroll with your finger,
5min (to next Track) on a Scrollbar
which is 5 cm long (should be something like 1.96 inches),
at a speed of 200 km/h (ca. 124 miles per hour).

The solving of my problem, was to dock
Winamp at the bottom. So its maximized.
Only when its maximized and will be closed,
it appears on the next start with my full frame.


Thank you for answering.
(and sorry, for my bad english, but i think it should work)

Now i only need player-buttons without pixels,
think i learn graphic-designing next weekend^^


.....OHHH MAN, i excruciate with my english and you come from Bavarian???
Im from Augsburg and work at the moment in Penzberg

hehe, i actually smiled as you converted km/h to mph :P

when i have more time i'll work on a semi shade mode for another skin:


this might pretty fit for your aims.

also check out komodo for winamp:
http://komodo.nitrousaudio.com/

it has big buttons and was designed for car PCs

the komodo stuff seems to be cool (also your new skin),
but i have more than 200GB soundfiles (most of them are mixes)
and i dont use playlists (only for internetstreaming).

I prefer to use the Explorer to find my files

AND the seekbar is also only 5cm long.

thx
