WOW. I love this skin - so many features, colour modes, etc. Stick mode is pretty nifty too! Kudos to you! =D
Furikuu Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2005
Every time I download the newest version of Winamp, I hope the problem will go away but it doesn't.. both Rainmeter and Task Manager report at least 40% CPU usage just for this skin, even when it isn't playing anything. It's the only thing that stops me from using it D: Is this problem acknowledged and is there a fix or anything for it? Please let me know. Thanks.
StefanWilkens Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2005
By far the most amazing skin I've ever seen... it's simplicity (read: no huge sizes, no flashing red buttons) make it the top of its class... I love it. I simply love it.

best winamp skin by far ! best ever ! :) my fav forever
zoanoid Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2004  Hobbyist Digital Artist
whoa nice skin! you have some talent :worship:

I tried making a skin for winamp 3 once. 'Tried' that is cause I didn't succeed ;)
I found out it was really hard to make a winamp skin, all the different programs you need and the different files you have to make. It is a tedious job. Also, a lot of a skins' graphics go unnoticed because it is hidden somewhere.

Great job
Richard5037 Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2004
Hey man this is one of the best skins I've ever seen/used,but I do have a tiny little complaint.I only use it on Stick mode cause it vitrually doesnt take up any space,but it's hard to control the volume,switch songs with those tiny little buttons.But other than that this is an awesome skin =)
badaboom Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2004
Cool looking skin. I am using it in stick mode just now :)
I miss the minimise button in stick mode and its eating loads of cpu resources.

NIce work :)
sinan Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2004  Professional Interface Designer
I saw this at the olympics and was stunned, I really like it, Its very slick and smooth, just how I like 'em :) The shape is so organic and fluid, and so is the shading, the colour themes are nice too. The mode system is great, Good work

Good work :) !
inziladun Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2004   Writer
This looks really cool, and the endless colour schemes are easy to fit to your desktop! The really small size bugged me a little at first, because I couldn't seem to find anything.. But the 'Next Mode' button is a stroke of brilliance, it allows diverse use of the skin despite its stylish minimalistic design. The design, by the way, is extremely modern and very appealing indeed. The general shape is almost ergonomic, it looks really great; almost like one of those cars from Minority Report. :giggle:
But the 'Stick' and 'Mini' modes are just rediculously small, it's quite fiddly to use them.. The stick is understandable, if you just have a playlist that you want to play without interruption, but the Mini mode lives up to its name a little too well. ;)

Brilliant job though, I rarely download skins from deviantART but this is just too cool to pass. 8)

Gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous.

Beautiful skin! Probably the best and smoothest I've ever seen! Although, it uses waaaayyy too much CPU for my computer to handle. :(
ApolloCS Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2004
unfortunately that's why i'm not using it anymore. :/
ryan-gfx Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2004
