This isn't a bad skin you got here. Color schemes look good, functionality is fine, and it's compact. Not bad. Obviously you had a lot of trouble with it, why didn't you just ask one of the other skinners for help? I would have told you how to do it.

Well, I would have liked to asked other but since my dealings with one of the other "OLD TIMERS" here, and their attitude, I assumed no one would be willing to actually help.

I am always willing to learn, but knowing where to ask, as well as WHO to ask isnt that easy.

If you know of anything I can to to make this work better, please let me know.

As far as I see on the message board, this certain person was only trying to help. But thats not my business. And believe me there are plenty of people here willing/wanting to help.

Now, I'm using the right now David and is a great WMP skin. The only thing I can think of is more colors as I have no gripes; maybe an update in the future. Great work--looking forward to future skins.

What other colors would you like? I have it setup so I can add more colors pretty easily now, The only concern I had with more colors was the size of the skin. Its already up to 2+mb. I like the idea of more colors, and with DSL, size of a skin isnt all that big a deal anymore.

Have a great one, and thanks for the input!

Fine work! Not only does it look and work great, but I'm sure the personal achievement of hand-crafting the JS is reward of its own!

Thanks, I don�t like how its done, its clunky, I wanted to "fade" one color into another, but the fact that this much took me about 20hrs of attempting to DEBUG this thing, was enough for one week.

I would have no problems with anyone looking thru the skin, and offering suggestions on how this might be possible. I am not a JS expert by ANY stretch, but I have learned a lot in the past week, including how to fix a TON of things I have never had working right, but just didn�t know it.

Thanks for the comments.

great work on the skin! i just have a suggestion. maybe u can allow the left part of the skin to be hidden or shown just like the playlist on the right. don't need to take this too seriously though. it's just a feature that i'd like to have...hehe...

So hide the EQ/Title, Etc?
and just leave the little piece in the center?

Hmmm.. Would need something to show what is playing right?

It may be possible..Not sure..

Maybe V4?

exactly. just leave the piece in the middle for the most basic functions. don't even need something to show what's playing.

Im looking for something different, this might work for my new skin. Let me play a while. I have an idea on something.

I almost missed this one. It is wonderful, I love the shape and it's not too big...if you add more colors how about light ones like metallic silver, gold or white to go with everything....just a thought

Thanks! Im working on something a little different for my new skin, just have NO TIME to get the dumb thing done. Need to clone myself, but the world does NOT need that.
