Correct. Well done!

It doesn't look that good if you have a desktop whose colour varies a lot, but it definatly looks better than before.

In this case, it is generally better to specify the colour as 170,170,170 which is about the same shade of grey that the main window uses. This doesn't give you smooth edges, but it gives a consistant look, which works better than nothing at all.

The example adil chose was a good one to choose because the background is quite a consistent blue.

it's a shame you cant script the colour to change dynamically with the pixel colour from a definaed pixel location under the skin

Great skin looks cool very functional especially to Will's pref. window and just fun to play with.
The only thing that bothered me is that it doesn't remember the state it was in (undocked state) after closing and opening winamp again.

cause it's still a beta.
we already wasted many posts on this topic... there will be a password free version soon, that will be the version 1.0

Will is probably coding the last pieces of code left. then I just need to redo the animations and fix some graphics et voila.

wey, the new control panel looks even better with sliders for the fake d-alpha !
We will release the skin tomorrow, we have a last minute feature to add + I need to redo the animations and some buttons.

I repeat the release is Friday 12th (shit I wish it was 13th)
Willfisher says you better get the new build 481, wich will be released in a few hours. boom works better with it.
see you tomorrow people

boom is dodgy w/ 481 right now. asserts in font.cpp. Trust me. Let them work out the bugs -- I think it's a bug in the build, tho, not the skin.

This skin is known not to work on RC2 - grab build 481 (which works for me).
