Official VAGDesign WinAMP

This my first attempt in WinAMP3 skinning art. The Metal look of the skin with the animated Equalizer and Animated playlist Editor component makes it look like a portable device. This might be the 1st time that a skin has animated Playlist Editor that is locked with the skin interface. "Thanks to Adam BoatRight (aka Da_Pipe) for this great script he wrote "following" my ideas on interface/design/usability of the final skin look. The skin has Scale option (50-400%) and Opacity option (10-100%) When the Playlist Editor is open "active" the scale option is disabled, and when the scale is other than 100% if PL button pressed scale goes to 100% and appears the Playlist Editor. We hope you like the design and the appearance of the skin, in the future we might make a V2 of it with color themes included and many "goodies" more.

~regener8ed, probably you don't use Windows 2000/XP that support Alpha Transparency.
If you use the above Operating systems go to Preferences of WinAMP and see on Options/Preferences/System/Advanced and Enable the Desktop Alpha setting.
After this you'll see the skin as it's captured on the screenshots :D (Big Grin)

a nice start to be sure; my primary complaint would be that the EQ and PL dont entirely hide behind the main window - the EQ especially protrudes above the top of the player when retracted.

It's awesome all except for how huge it is. And the scale just makes the letters messed up so that doesn't work. Good job tho
anemovatis's avatar
ah! forget the previous comment. I wanted to say that this is officialy the first Winamp skin designed by a Greek, and i am glad for it. With opacity turned to 70% the skin rocks. Keep up the good work and i am looking forward for Version 2.

P.S. i will make some color themes if you want. ;) (Wink)

As about playlist heheeh there is a surprise if you have mention it so far.
While is OPEN the animated Playlist press "right click" on the skin and you'll see that (Playlist Editor) is UNCHECKED :) (Smile)
You can open also a SECOND playlist Editor on the same skin, with my animated integrated and also the default Playlist if you wanna see your list in fullscreen or whatever you like :D (Big Grin)

Betas and Pre-Releases of the skin (Psst if you take a look aroud in hardwareGeeks forums and WinAMP forums you'll see what I mean hehehe 2-3 posts in each forum for same skin, I was and Still am so excited for my first attampt in WinAMP skinning :D (Big Grin)

Slatan ;) (Wink) den eida Fav gia synparastash mikre....kai einai Metal skin, paliometallo :P (Lick) hehehe

Thanks all for your ideas/opinions and cimpliments, and I promise you 2nd version will include much more than you want or imagine, cause except I feed your imagination, I also feed mine day by day ;) (Wink)


PS: almost 4000 downloads in WinAMP site after 24 hours of submision hehe This makes me happy, I wish here in DA could be Daily deviation when I had added, but I choosed the " fair " way in a non "high traffic" time to submit it.
When all Americans was at sleep and Asia / Oz /Japan at work. :( (Sad)
