Skins issues (prob usual thing)

I've gotten winamp pro - and the modern skin support plugin v 1.42 is present and enabled

Yet I can only choose Modern skin or the Bento ones - all others I try to install defaults it to classic.

Also I get the installer window, it installs it says for skins but no files appear in the Skin subfolder of my Winamp directory.

Am I missing something here or does this sound odd to anyone else?

Try copying the skin files you downloaded to the "Skins" subfolder. These files should have a "wal" or "wsz" extension.

Manually moving files in works, at least for skins that come in single file format - not sure on the multiple ones yet though but thx for the great help

Don't know what you mean by "multiple ones".

The ".wal" and ".wsz" files are archiving files, somewhat like ".zip" files. When you select one, WA extracts the separate files within it that make up the various parts of the skin.

Ok - that solves that then - I've got some older skins lying around that contain multiple files and folders in them - that sort of thing was what I was referrign to - but sicne they are bundled in the archive files now there is no problem anymore.

thx again
