Metal Gear Skin

This skin was made from screenshots of the original NES Metal Gear game. I did enough XML coding to make a working skin, but I still have a few things I need help on.

1. Making an AVS togglebutton for the main window.
2. Turning the gauge-thing into a volume meter.
3. Thinking of a use for a huge grey button.

Any feedback would be appreciated. By the way, how do you make a real screenshot? This is just a good mockup made using MS Paint.

Right now it's only semi-functional: there is no volume control, and the generic components are still unskinned, but the equalizier (the first with horizontal eq sliders, as far as I can tell) and the thinger are done.

Sorry, I'm having problems with the skin right now, I'll post the skin as soon as I can. (Actually, I just messed up posting it. But I'll see if I can script the volume gauge in the next few days before I TRY to post it again.)

That is really freaking cool! I love all the switches and buttons and dials. The only thing I wanted that I couldn't find was an open (eject) button. Did I miss it?

I was away for a while.
But I'm feeling much better now.

The eject button is the thing to the right of the timer.

Ooooops...It isn't. I did find it however. It's to the right of the songinfo/vis. To the right of the timer is the minimize and close buttons.

It's STILL cool!

Sorry. Anyway, I fixed some fonts in the components. It isn't much of an update, but who cares?

Can anyone think of a better use for that huge gray button than a stop button?
