cool, do so..

I tested it in build 478, and there are stuff in the script that needs #478 too, so no beta3 support..

now, I'm off to bed (not enough caffeine )

Hey ThePlague, there is an error in your script (and no, it has noyhing to do with "lib/std.mi" and I was to lazy to write down the line that the error occured on.)

I keep running into so many damn problems with this stupid skin. I made the skin once with simple graphics, and now all I'm doing is replacing the old ones for new ones, I'm barely changing the XML. My problem is now my drawer still opens, but becomes cut-off after pixel y="100", and I cross referenced the old XML, to the new XML, but I don't see anything pertaining to the drawer that I might have accidentaly changed, I've tried everything, but I don't know what happened. I'm probably going to upload a wal or zip file later, so can someone please take a look and teel me what the hell went wrong.

my script works flawlessly for the default skin in #478.
I believe I know what "error" you'r talking about.
it's this right?
Group mainnormal = getContainer("Main").getLayout("Normal").getObject("player.normal");
Group playbuttons = mainnormal.getObject("player.normal.playbuttons");
Pause = playbuttons.getObject("Pause");

this is meant for the default skin, as it's very different from what it used to be in beta3.. just check sysfunc.m in the #478 default skin and you'll know what I mean.

This is no error, as you'll have to change those lines in order to make it work in your skin

Also, <lib/std.mi> works if you run mc.exe from the root of the winamp3 folder.
As I'm using Crimson Editor, I'm doing just that.


edit:
you'r skin is not made for #478 right?
You'll have to make it for #478 or my script will not work as it is supposed to.
if (System.getStatus() == -1){
is not supported in beta3.

Hey ThePlague, I know what you are talking about with the script, and I had two things working against me, 1.I was being extremely lazy yesterday (I didn't have nearly enough caffine) and 2.I had to re-install winamp a while back, and I accidentaly instaled build #465, oops, well everything will be fine by the end of the day, and I already put that quick fix in the XML for the pause button.

One more thing this morning, when I put the toggle buttons for repeat/shuffle in the groupdef for my drawer, they don't work. They are still clickable, but they have no effect what so ever.

I remember seeing a frame maker tool in the forums a while back that made it easy to generate the XML for and animated layer, does anyone know where I can get it, it would really help me.

/edit


The Xfade, shuffle, repeat stuff is because you put them in a drawer, you'll have to edit sysfunc.m for that to work..

I'll show how to do it:

from #478 default sysfunc.m
code:

// Get buttons
ToggleXFade = mainnormal.getObject("Crossfade");
ToggleShuffle = mainnormal.getObject("Shuffle");
ToggleRepeat = mainnormal.getObject("Repeat");



change to
code:

Group [insert group here] = mainnormal.getObject("[insert groupid here]");
// Get buttons
ToggleXFade = [insert group here].getObject("Crossfade");
ToggleShuffle = [insert group here].getObject("Shuffle");
ToggleRepeat = [insert group here].getObject("Repeat");

I just got to thinking, and this skin was origionaly made to see if I could make a WA3 skin with limited functionality, and then I wanted to see if I could make a drawer, and eventually I had a decent skin (I suck at graphics). There were a few more things that I wanted to try, or to know if they were possible. Is it possible to make the hoverimage of a playback button an animated layer? if so, can you a.make the animation loop. or b. make the animation run once through. That being said, can you have an animation that runs when you move the mose away from the button? (like an on mouse event type thing)

For those of you that downloaded the problem.wal, what did you think of the playback buttons, do you think that they fit the skin?

Thanks Plague...

Yes, those animation ideas are quite posible. In the skin Boxor, The control buttons flip over when you hover over then and flip back when you don't. Quite creative accually.

And yes, the buttons do look very good with the skin. They match well.

In all honestly, I never thought that this pile of crap of a skin would turn out so well, I just hope when I'm finished people will like it and use it.

Hmmm...I like it, and I'm using it right now. Wish granted. But are you sure you want to release it now? I think you should also skin the components and the menu. It would look really cool if you did them just like the main window.

Well, I'm glad you guys like it, and Joshuatree: I am going to hold off on releasing it until I skin everything, I have also attached a skinshot of the completed main window.

Thank's. I have yet another question. See that bar on the drawer? I was thinking of replacing it with an animated layer, the layer being a bar of the same size, except with scrolling text saying "Thinger/EQ" or "Options" or something like. I'm just not sure if it will detract from the rest of the skin.

I just finished the drawer, and I think I'm going to leave it animation free. I actually like it as simple as possible, all that is left to do now is to skin the menus and components (which is going to take some time, I'm still figuring things out) I figure about another week or so, and it will be completely skinned.

This skin has gone a looong way and it will be well worth it.

BTW, I think it was a good idea to drop the animation thing

I just got done fixing a few bugs with the main window, and adding a few more effects to it (I fixed the corona around the playback buttons getting cut off, and I added coronas to the volume, and seek bars) Well, I have been working on this all day on and off, and I think I'm going to throw in the towel for the night.

nice..

one suggesiton though , why don't u try to change the color of the vis top thing, (i am not sure what it is called) but it is the rod like thing that is on top of the moving bars of the vis, that is at the top, it kinda like the vis top cover.

naah, I'm not sure I agree with that, since you use black everywhere..
I think it would look weird if the peaks (yes, that's what they are called) had other colors..

IF you're to change color on them, use the same grey as you use on the drawer for thinger arrows etc...

I do agree that the vis needed a little flare, it was just a little on the dull side, but I took a different approach, I went black, grey, black, with black vis peaks. let me know what you think. I also came up with a name for this skin, "Simplistic Vision" I think it suites the skin, what do you think?
