Beat Visualization

I already managed to "import" the Beat Visualization from the WA Default Modern Skin.

I copied the beatvisualization.maki file to my scripts folder,
Copied the images 6 images to my player folder,
Added images to player-elements.xml,
Added the code to my player.normal.xml,
Called the maki file from inside the player-normal.xml...

and it works very nice, but only after a Guru Meditation Null object called scripts/beatvisualization.maki

Any help?

You will get a guru error as you have not copied an object from the original to your clone and it references it in the maki script.
You can go down the route of debugging the guru error by creating a debug.sym file and looking up the references for the sections to arrive at where the error is. Think there might be a debug thread at SC, can't remember.

Better still would be to create your own from scratch, so you know what you've done.

Thank you SLoB, I am learning to skin winamp by copying scripts and modifing existing skins... I added the album art function from WA default modern skin without guru errors, but now I understand that not everething can be copied in a simple way.

BTW the album art works very well, but when I include the albumart.xml file inside the skin.xml code, it duplicates a non-working equalizer item within my winamp's context menu. I believe that this item is included in the original .maki file... the thing is that I dont have the .m file and if had it I still dont know how to complile files into .maki format

What you need is the skin developer's pack. It has what you're looking for.
