Like Joe says, skins in Winamp may be in its low days because of various reasons, but in the software landscape the feature itself is not dead at all; particularly in Android it is quite alive, just today Swiftkey changed its business model from pre-paid to freemium;

Hi!

I got here looking for the old skins that were hosted on the Winamp website. A wave of nostalgia has hit me hard and I really want to find a skin I saw maybe 10 years ago and used for a long time (which is now, alas, lost). I apologize if this is in the wrong section, please let me know where I should post this instead (or whether I should, at all).

Is there any way at all to get at the old skins? I already tried the existing websites for that (allwinampskins, 1001skins, winampskins, uploadgeneration...), but none of them have that particular skin. The skin in question is called New Moon, it's based on the anime Inuyasha, and the old download link is this: http://www.winamp.com/skins/details....-_New_Moon.wsz

Hello carbonCore,

if I click on this link, I get only the message:
"Not Found
The requested URL /skins/details.php was not found on this server."

Do You have a screenshot of this Classic Skin or can You draw & paint it and then post an image?

Did You already visit Winamp Heritage and Customize.org? And if You are in Facebook, I have taken some Facebook-Groups into my hands and I have added all important links in the group-descriptions. Also I suggest to do a web search & image search with the skin name, maybe you have to add "winamp skin" or "classic skin" as keywords.

I myself have downloaded all Winamp Skins from other websites than winamp.com, and mostly I got, what I wanted to have.

I wish You good luck...

Hmm... that's a tricky one, strangely not present in any of the backup sites (it was probably erased for some reason before 11/2013..)...

I can say the same about the second screenshot:
http://forums.winamp.com/showpost.ph...8&postcount=11

Also on deviantART only the image was downloadable, and I have the image without this Classic Skin now.

And I wasn't able to find a few of the more beautiful Classic Skins in this video (the most Winamp Skins don't look beautiful):
http://vimeo.com/47805794

But there are more terrible things on planet earth than some missing skins, which don't exist anymore, and I have many other very good Winamp Skins on my computer...

Thank you for the replies!

Here is what the skin looked like:



I highly doubt anyone here would have downloaded it before, since it was posted on a fairly obscure fansite which has been taken down a long time ago (2005 or so), but... worth a try

Edit: Holy crap, I found it. God bless reverse image search on Google.

Thank you all again for your help. If I didn't end up posting the image here, I don't think I would've ever gotten the idea to do a reverse image search on the picture. Cheers!

Also from another Winamp Classic Skin I have only the image-file:
http://jixor.deviantart.com/art/JixT...Beta-2-4132739
JixTrekAmp_Beta_2_by_jixor.jpg and Purple_Haze_Winamp_Skin_by_riksruin.jpg are in my subfolder "Skins_Missed_Images_Only" now.

But I have 44 other LCARS Winamp Classic Skins and 1 LCARS non-SUI Modern Skin. At least the 3 most important windows of the Classic Skins are skinned (1 of the Classic Skins is fully skinned). You can do an image search for "lcars winamp skin". There are no LCARS SUI Skins yet, for example cPro & cPro2 LCARS Skins. Maybe they will be created by a very good Winamp Skinner some day...

I myself don't belong to the Winamp Skinners & Preset Authors. I know, I never would be a good Winamp Skinner, and better people than me should do that. I never would have enough time. I would be very glad, if I would be able again to compose new music. But creating a Winamp Skin? I never would have success, if I would try to do that...

Just for the sake of curiosity, do you know /remember where did you get that portable from? (Winamp is known for not being really portable - friendly..)
