Help with programing

Hi

Recently I downloaded version 5 of winamp. Till now I used 2.8. I skined it more than once. So now, with new version I tried it again, but ran in to a problems.
I'm graduate student of graphic design. We didn't have any lectures where we learn about programing.
So I am asking if someone would like to code my WA5 skin. I think that design is great. I used defoult skin for reference, but changed it a lot.


tnx inadvance.

Mostly I use minimalistic aproach and with all buttons and possibilities of winamp it's hard, almoast impossible to keep simple visual feeling of interface. Kitsch is 90% of all skins that I saw on internet so excuse me for keeping it simple as possible.

But that is not what I was asking here. I asked if someone would like to code the script. So, anyone?

*********
90%???? how did you 'calculate' this. Using your attitude as calculator isn't very good idea
The design looks nice, thou... many people will like this, many will say it's a 'Kitsch of Primitivism'

The problem (my speculation) maybe here thou..: there must be some sort of 'excitement in the work' for somebody to take design and do scripting for it. Scripting is borring sh*t as "stand alone activity"
Looks like this design isn't just 'based on default-modern', it's is like a "Theme Of Default skin", another words the scripting would be nearly the same as default if not exactly the same. You just need to 'separate' graphics into files, simply following the same structure as in default-skin design. It would be extremly boring thing to do.
Why not to do it yourself?. It would be also a good graphical-design exersise

good luck,
