Title: [!] [FULL] Doc's Music Box
Post by: Docjon66 on August 19, 2010, 16:01:23
Doc's Music Box
Version 1.1

CHANGES:
Tabs altered to greatly minimize the glitch.  Glitch not yet completely solved, as width of Playlist is not a multiple of 3 or 4.  It will require more time to fix properly, in the meantime, I have reduced it's appearance to a 1-pixel wide, short line.  The picture at the bottom of this post shows the glitch, which only appears if using 4 or more Playlists at the same time, and if scrolling through them with your mousewheel.

This is a somewhat large skin, made primarily for use with larger monitors with resolutions higher than 1024 x 768.  The Tray Control is still a reasonable size, however, so many may find this usable at lower resolutions.  The Track Time numbers in the main window is my version of Nixie Tube numbers. I was going for an old-fashioned/steampunk look.

I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks to Thomas E. Harvey, who graciously gave his permission for me to use his font in this project.

No bad, +1, but I'll not use it...

There is one remark: Last visible tab of playlist is cut off...

The only thing I dislike in this skin is how you made progress in volume/balance/seek bars. They lacks volume, though I duuno what'll be better, some bevel like in tray control's seek bar or inner shadow from top-left corner. Though skin is awesome, good work, keep it up ;)

Ah, thank you.  I will see what I can do about it. I played around with it for a few minutes, ant it appears no small change in TAB size will completely fix it - I may have to change the Playlist and Main window width by one pixel, or make the tabs significantly narrower, so that 4 tabs fit at the same time.

You could make 3 tabs, but bigger, with that font you showed on screenshots it'll be better that way - bigger artist name you could fit in - better.

Glitch improved, but not yet eliminated.  See first post for more info.

On another subject, 14 minutes after I posted it, you found a glitch in my skin, changed the fonts in the Main window and Playlist tabs, and posted a screenshot of the glitch.  You don't waste any time!


Added after 6 min. 45 sec.

Thanks.  I started making this skin before I played Bioshock. I bought it just a month ago when it was on sale.  It has some beautiful Art Deco graphics - just absolutely gorgeous work. Had I played it earlier, I might have taken more inspiration from it, like adding some marble, for example.

I completely forget that non-English speakers might have a problem with the font in the main window, since they use characters I don't. Is the font causing anyone problems?  Should it be changed for something like Tahoma?

It reminds me "Eye Of The Beholder", "Lands Of Lore" or early 90s games in general :)

I'm glad you guys like it.  It's a little different than a lot of skins here - a lot of them are really slick, glossy, and modern-looking.  I kind of went in another direction.  It's not everything I'd like it to be, but it's pretty close.  AIMP is, in my mind, what WinAMP SHOULD have been, before they messed with it so much they ruined it.  I like AIMP so much, it inspired me to make a skin just for me.  A great program with an interface I designed, well, things just don't get better than that!

For the first time in a long while, I'm actually thinking about making a new skin.  I have an idea, but I need to think about it awhile, see if I can flesh it out into something worth doing.
