"Simple Yet powerful" skin

hello all,

ok i think this time i am gonna actually finish this skin, cause i really like the design and the stuff i am gonna do in it.

here is a raugh skin shot, i started working on it today and i wanna see ur opinions..

what should i put in those drawers.?? what about the overall look.

and as i said i am gonna finish this one. and i am thinking of several good coding stuff i am gonna add to it.


neways tell me whatcha think. it is called "simple yet powerfull" because of simplicity, but it is easiness of use.

I like the shape and the design that u used for it
but I (no offense) really hate the graphics themselves; the color scheme, the effects, all of it

[edit] Oh and for the drawers; make one playlist and one equalizer :-)[/edit]

thanx guys

thepyr0x: thanx for the opinion.. i think there are still lots of stuff i have to add, the gfx look awkward cause still everything is not in place yet. if u can tell me what u don't like it would be great, but i will keep u up-to-date.

naamloos: thanx.. about playlist, i though about it, i like it bigger but i dunno what to put there, what do u think??
and this may seem stupid but what r color controls??

and i might need some help on those drawers. what i wanna do and i don't know if it is possible, but i was inspired by corner amp, and what i wanna do is that when one of the drawers opens i want to check if the drawer has enough space to open form either sides, if there is not enough space the skin will automatically move to the edge of the screen while te drawer is open, don't knwo if anyone understands me , or even if it is possible, but anyways it is too early now, i still have to do basic stuff.. but if anyone wants to help me out with the gfx or the scripting later on please do, as my experience with scripting is not that good. neways i will prolly give ya an update tomorow. thanx guys.

Yeah im 100% sure thats possible (checking the space to the left of the screen)

Color controls, check the gamma-controls component in the right click menu or by thinger

I dunno what to put there......

naamloos , if u read this, can u tell me a good link where i can read up more about color controls and how they work. thanx a lot, cause i checked gamma controls and i saw how they work, but i am not sure what i am supposed to do.

what do u guys think of the new changes?

I like it, remembers me a bit of PixelPushers skin...must be because of the font

To know how to do gamma-controls, check Cannes, im sure this one has a lot of presets

I still don't like that texture you're using
maybe I'm just impossible to please, but I really don't like flat psp texture based skins (and for all of uwho saw that crapass attempt I made at a skin, I know I aint any better). I much prefer design based skins, like Boxor or Probe.


but yeah it is a cool font

i can't remeber where i got it from but it is called "AVEREN". i can send it to u if u want.

as for the textures, i dunno why u don't like them, i mean i find them really nice, maybe decreasing the depth of the texture will please u?? i dunno, i will try to change it a bit. thanx for the support guys.

ok here is a new screen shot, the frawers buttons are not there, yet, but this one is actually from the working skin, not just ps images.

thepyr0x, tell me what ya think, i decreased the depth of the textures, and this makes the textures barely visible.

currently working on the drawers..

the rhino.. did u find the font??

i still don't get the gamma contorls, but i didn't really look closley, i will be trying to figure em out today.

tell me what u think

I think the font is ubercool, but unreadable for the songticker and timer, maybe you should stick with normal verdana or something like that...

Btw looks pretty good so far!

ok guys if anyone is out there to help me with this.

ok i added the right drawer to the skin, and it slides and moves perfectly, but the image is not right (check screen shot)

in the pic on top, the main window should show completley (it only shows the left half of it) and there the main window duplicated with a smaller size i don't know why.

in the pic on the bottom the srawer is open, but now the main window doesn't show anymore, and the little main window duplicate still is there but covered by the drawer.

here is some code that maybe helpfull

code:

<groupdef id="drawer" background="eq-drawer" >

//i defined the eq elements here

</groupdef>

<layout id="normal" background="player.main.bg" desktopalpha="1">

<group id="drawer" x="180" y="0" sysregion="1"/>

<layer id="cover-up" image="player.main.drawercover" x="225" y="0" ghost="1"/>


//then the main window definitions



if someone is willing to help on this i can post the .wal or send it to him.

thanx a lot if u can help me out.

whoa whoa whoa take it easy budy hehe lol.

well i am definetly not u, my ps skills are not as good as u, i saw ur boom skin and it is amazing. but this skin, well i hade the basic layout on paper, and my ps skills didn't allow me to port the exact same thing i was supposed to do. but as i said in my first post, i just wanna finish this skin, and learn all the aspects.

and another thing, i kinda like my skins "SIMPLE" small and easy to use, i don't like big multifunctional extra fashionabl skins (although they are cool) i mean there are lots of cools skins out there but i never use them i end up using some simple skin like "Dirty amp" aka "Simplicity" i really like this skin.

so for u it may suck big time but for me it is really one of the best skins i ever tried to do. hehe.

but anyways opinion appreciated, thanx a lot, my next try will definetly be better.
