Vortex Skin in Progress

I sorta like where this could go so I Am posting the progress here. I have coded like 4 skins in the last month. So does anyone have any free time to help here with some neat effects like fading buttons and push button eq sliders and stuff like that? I will do make all the pngs. and shade and standard frames. Anyway here it is.

thanks guys!! I will do that Hammerhead. This one will definately get shadow.

Rohan- What i wanted to do with this skin is put the EQ under the main glass having it fade in and out like my dominator skin that frisbee worked on. Also have fading buttons or animated buttons. also a mini mode that can stretch. I want the skin to keep its sleek look, so not alot of buttons hopefully on it. I will give you the .wal with all the buttons placement. then you can have at it and we will see what ya got

cool 3d look to it Quad
it needs some cooler cbuttons on it tho i reckon than just those ones planted on it (even tho its wip)
the overall design is cool, i just reckon those buttons dont do the rest of the design much justice

lighting's a bit messed up on the top. it's looking way too blurred the way it is.
other than that, it's quite nice, though you really need new buttons
slob made a nice suggestion with those buttons, but there are so many glass-buttons around, and some rendered 3d-buttons would look way better, i think. would make this thing more interesting
contact me if you need any help!

Yeah, I know it's an exmple, but the button is looking way to illuminated to actually be where it's located..

The type of style is perfect though. Just would be nicer if not so intense.

And I would have a little left offset on the lightsource too, as I can see of the base, the light is coming almost straight from above, with a little left offset.

chippin away

Rontz -Pulsedriver,
I will work on the light source and your other comments.

Here is the new face with alot of new features,

added
1.animated visuals

2.EQ behind animation

3.new buttons

4: S2 timer

all buttons on face are working left side are the ML PL AVS PREF

right side are the Song memory buttons.

lots buttons still to add. Would like to have a programmer work with me to add some new features that he would desire in it like what a skin has never had before. I would like to pass it around to Rontz, Slob, and Pulsedriver. to see if they can add some stuff they think it needs. I think it would be fun, but we all have to agree that it looks good and Maki works well.

please tell me what looks bad ect..ect..

here is the latest

looking good Quad, i like the buttons now and esp. those 3d buttons on the lcd just a question, those 2 circles on each side of the player, are they gonna be animated speakers? i think its cool if they are.
also, maybe use symbols for the component buttons labels instead of letters.

Hey Leech thanks, I know you are busy with Kameleon. Speakers? hmmm I have 7 animations in there already I think it might conflict with the animation maki that is in there already. If you want to code em and have em not seen but as a option to turn on that would be good for me. hehe. I will look into the symbols to.

Hammer any one of these things

you could code 2 drawers .. you see the white things on the side. One drawer would have the color themes and the other has a config drawer with options that would have the fading cbuttons on off and the membuts fading on off.
with other stuff.

or you can make a stretchable shade mode like the winamp modern one. i know that is tough maybe someone else can code this. I will supple the shade with the components on it you just have to make it stretch and get smaller.

Or again you could make the standard frame like you did with
resurgence with those cool Buttons on it with play, seek ect..

or AVS behind the main screen- works with a button on off.

Things that havent been done in a skin that I would like to see and I have dreamed about...

//text (song and timer) that reacts to the beat- gets brighter

//Arched text or angled text (timer songticker)

//Color Theme Buttons a button that is directly linked to a specific theme. Are you sure there is no way around this Leech, Hammer?

//a button on the EQ that turns 5.1 surround on /off

//A 20 slider eq.

add to this list and see if we can get some of these done.

Thanks again guys all will get credit for what they have done.

Leech can we borrow this from kameleon
hoverglow.m

#include <lib/std.mi>

Global guiObject triggerObject, glowObject;

System.onScriptLoaded() {
group scriptGroup = getScriptGroup();
string param = getParam();

triggerObject = scriptGroup.getObject(getToken(param,",",0));
glowObject = scriptGroup.getObject(getToken(param,",",1));

if (glowObject) {
glowObject.setAlpha(0);
glowObject.setTargetSpeed(0.5);
}
}

System.onScriptUnloading() {
return;
}

triggerObject.onEnterArea() {
if (glowObject) {
glowObject.cancelTarget();
glowObject.setAlpha(255);
}
}

triggerObject.onLeaveArea() {
if (glowObject) {
glowObject.cancelTarget();
glowObject.setTargetA(0);
glowObject.gotoTarget();
}
}

and will it work with this line in
button ID
glowImage="main.button." glowy="-3" gloww="30" glowh="29"

hey, been away for a while. yes you can use that code no problem. most of the codes there are reusable and feel free to use them.

but, glowImage="main.button." glowy="-3" gloww="30" glowh="29", would not work with that code. thats the one for the XUI object i had in kameleon. all you need to do is place the trigger object id and the glow object id on the param like this:
code:

<script file="scripts\hoverglow.maki" param="layerID,glowlayerID"/>

I find this detail breaks the elegant design of the edge, but it's just my opinion.
