main GFX next to done:

the button under 'JRS' toggle screen mode (normal, screen vis)
the buttons either side of the eq screen toggle eq screen mode (alarm, sleep, eq)

any comments or ANY ideas should be posted asap before i start coding

Awesome shaping and detail work on this one mc - there's really nothing to add imo - you carried the style all the way can't wait to play with it

lol...my skin is not THAT good looking in my eyes - maybe because I stare at it every day. for that style it's ok pretty. mmd3 has sweet and consistent gfx so has moow (what I've seen.) And there's lots of other skins worth mentioning with varying styles.

I'm no freeform artist. I heavily depend on the selection tools provided in ps - heck I can't even draw a stick figure freehand lol. Being limited like that narrows the artistic expression and style variation down quickly I think.

I'm just making it harder on myself having to top my skin when I plunge into my next skin project.

alrite, I will have my turn to criticize then

- the thinger looks pretty small....not like I use it but it's still very hard to see - especially with the left/right buttons the way they are

- the bevel for the posbar underneath the playlist looks a bit shallow for me....looks almost as if the indicator is floating...come to think of it the volume slider on the thinger window is the same way

other than those small critiques, this skin is awesome mc...can't wait to see it in action

i think a thinger on teh EQ will be too busy. Also, since it will ahve to be either straight horizontal or verticle, it will really disrupt the smooth curve flow you got goin on. I like it as a seperate window.

the mini mode...
those angled thingies beside the display
they seem to make it kinda, cluttered

im kinda indifferent with the handle on the main mode...im wondering if it would look better with the speakers just attatched to the main player
the handle just seems....excessive

there is one more thing that bothers me
it's not out yet

To tell you the truth I like this one better than Energy3. I mean, i like the feel of the skin where everything is right there on the main skin... and to me the energy3 has a more "cool" feel to it than this one.

Are you seriously considering coding those disco lightish thingies? Cuz that would be an incredible feat to behold.

SWEETASS!!

OMG, that's really cool. It'd be uber0fabtastic if those lights could move around... it'd require a lot of animated layers though

But still... it's things like that that get skins noticed. great!

the lights will hopefully move around, either with layerfx or animated layers (prolly layerfx). if i could change their color via maki i would but i cant, so youll just have to put up with gammagroups...

I still think it is not very easy to see the font
maybe change the color? to something that stands out a bit more?

Gonzotek made XML and Maki highlighting sets for the Crimson Editor, just search for them on this forum..
There is someone else too who made sets that might be more up to date, should be on this forum aswell..

But Gonzotek's xml highlighting is only for Winamp Xml, I think.
Ah well, they're all good.

ok all speakers are now thumping, but some bugs with the bottom speakers in and out timings with the drawer and turning them on and off and stuff. (alot of 'if' statements and int's, too confoosing) te eq bars and stuff are coded.

i havnt worked on this in the last 3 days, skools bak from holidays and i am crushed for time... i have skool and rowing (6 trainings a week), as well as other gfx work that is unfortunatly higher priority. i get home and just want to bomb out, not code...
