hi my name its matias, maybe you know me by some other names in deviant like uriel or skinister. The thing its that im designing an skin and i dont know hot to code it, i try checking some tutorials but i cannot make it work and i dont have too much time to work with it either.

heres a little preview of the skin:



let me know if you guys can make the coding, it would be great :).

ps: i dont want it to be a xion skin, i want it to have some nice features like you guys can make :thumbup:

the idea of porting to xion 1st and then to wa is that we see how everything works.
so as xion skin you do everything in the PSD file - you can arrange things hit f5 and see how it works.
the display looks still a bit empty...

yep we can do quick rgb on this, make sure it works in Xion first and keep the coloured/glass layers separate
fill it with some more content.

get the main player working in Xion, then work on getting the standard frame, EQ & notifier going

Xion format is what we are looking for really even if you don't want it to end up in Xion, Xion is a fantastic prototyping tool for skinning, you can see what works and what doesn't instantly but you need to format it right so that we can pick it up and not have to worry bout changing lots of stuff to get it into a usable state.


the sooner people start using Xion to test their skins out the better really, it IS THE BEST prototype for skinning media players

the outerglow or drop shadow i hope is not in final, so it can snap to edges. also the white stroke I would like to see in black and thinner if possible. in the empty space you could put a ipod like playlist there. and by clicking on a button in the top right it wil sift through EQ, PL, and VIS, and Album Cover...just some possibilities i thought of for design elements.

Edit: To add on to the last part, you could even have a button next to your X and - like MENU and when clicked it brings up a list of words:
Equalizer
Visual
Playlist
Album Cover
And when these are clicked it brings up the appropriate screen in the empty space.

Edit 2: I kept the psd if you need the design elements later.

k, so we must think about a seeker as well as on a volume control
imo we should keep the album art static on the left side of the display (can be the vis in xion version)

who is the author of this now?
Jikaru or Apolineeo
btw, i think skinister has also a account here on SC, lol

Apolineeo is the author, as of now, I was just showing you guys my vision of how this could work out. Theres not enough space to keep the album art static unless you add it to the VIS screen if you look at my diagram of ideas lol. And the way i was seeing the volume work is kind of explained in the diagram too. Scroll mouse down for lowering the volume and the percentage would change OR you could have a color bar that was demonstrated in http://sinan.deviantart.com/art/Dynamic-1-1-66688276

In the diagram each of my ideas is separated give me a couple hours to have a gif demonstrate the flow of my ideas in action...

and keep in mind im doing this without the original psd cause im not the author and i dont have too much control over outerglows/innerglows/alpha layers/etc...

Well, the .PSD's would help lots :P besides, if not I'd have to re-create it [badly at that lol]

But it will look fabulous!

I think it would be interesting if it flipped open using the play buttons as a pivot point letting the user get to the equalizer and other bits, just a thought. :)

Hi guys!

I decided to recreate this skin for everyone, it took 4 hrs, I got it all looking pretty close, the only thing that really needs modifying as far as the design goes now is the font which should be Arial Narrow, has anyone got a copy of this? Anyway, here you go! :thumbsup:

Oh btw I would like to name this skin Matias, after the guy that originally submitted it, what do you guys think?

Regards,

Costa

wow, that's cool!

now we need to decide for what player we want to create this skin for.

I dunno if you've heard of xion (there is a link in the forums main page), it features a easy to skin interface. So you just use Photoshop to create a skin, name the layers within according to a scheme so xion knows what to do. This is really great for prototyping! After a Xion skin is done, exporting to WInamp is easy, because everything a skin dev needs is already defined :D what do you think?

You don't have any winamp coding experience don't you?
