Things are slow in this forum if my skin thread jumps to the top...
Hey man - what about doing a minimised version where you can just see the robot dude. You could have the play / stop etc buttons as bits of the robot...
I've thought about making a windowshade mode with only the robot or one sans the robot, but I never much liked the idea. I don't use the windowshade mode at all. I have also considered putting buttons on the robot, but I didn't much like it either. Do people who use the windowshade mode use the always on top feature? That would be the only reason I think why one would use the windowshade mode, to take up less room on the desktop. Since I never keep it up top, I don't care about the size of the skin. I really appreciate the feedback though!
On a second note, now that this thread is at the top, my skin is newly updated. This is the third release for beta 2.5 The main change is that it is now animated! I suck at the whole maki thing, luckily Evil Pumpkin volunteered to help me. He wrote the whole script. I also pngcrushed it. This will be one of the last releases since it is just about done, save some minor changes.
