I tried but didn't succeed. I could enter the lines (text), but when I wanted to add the screenshot I had to register. Then my username 'already existed'??
Then with a new one, there was no way getting past the captcha.

Your link is broken.

Indeed. The website of the provider seems to have a serious brake-down. I'm sure it will be o.k. soon.
The link itself is fine.

I like the look of this skin a lot, but the one thing that stops me from using it is that you've placed the main player controls on the right of the bar at the bottom, instead of the standard position on the left.

I'm sorry, but I situated the player controls on the right side deliberately since I prefer them there myself.
It's pretty much the main reason why I started creating skins, and I won't change that specific feature.

This skin has been updated.
The download link has also been updated in the starting post of this topic.

Changed:
Under MusicBee v2.x it was not behaving very well with custom font types and sizes for the player info panel.
That should now have been vastly improved, and the skin is now also up to date for 'MusicBee v3demo'
(which is in development and in alpha stage at this moment of writing)

Please feel free to comment, be it good or bad.

Updated with several small improvements, and some additional features for MB v3.1

In case it matters to you, be aware that the icon for 'no rating' is now changed from a 'bomb' to a 'thumbs down' icon.

Updated.

- The player panel will now remain slim & slender™, also when larger fonts are selected for the main player’s track info.
- The option of displaying the wavebar in the player panel has been added.

The download link is in the start post.

Good skin.
How to change the background in the control buttons area?

Thanks mefisto.6
That's not really possible. Pretty much every button and indicator has some complicated colouring, shape and transparency to achieve the indicator effects I aimed for.
Only changing 'the background' would render the whole player panel very ugly.

Updated, minor tweaks, device icons added.

(these device icons will only show up in MusicBee v3.4> which is not yet available at this moment)

Updated again, the Mini Player has been improved.
(needs MB 3.3.7299 or up to display as intended)

My apologies for this forum bomb (again ;-) , but it's probably useful to users of these skins that have subscribed so to get notifications on updates.

Phenomenal work hiccup.

This is a skin I can use for a very long time.

I have a favour to ask, if it doesn't bother you (the same thing I asked for Elemental)

Will it be possible for you to create a mod that hides the scroll bars and only makes them visible when the cursor is hovered over them ?

In any case, this is top notch work.

Thanks you for this beautiful skin.

Thanks for the appreciation wealstarr.

You can achieve what you want by creating a piggyback skin.
(as explained here:  https://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=29815.0)

For this particular request you would need to use something like this:

Code
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<root dependsOn="Sportura Pinstripe.xmlc">
<colours id="Default">
 <element id="Content[Artwork].ScrollBar.Lowlight" bg="31,31,31" bg2="31,31,31" />
 <element id="FilterPanel.ScrollBar.Lowlight" bg="31,31,31" bg2="31,31,31" />
 <element id="ColumnBrowser.ScrollBar.Lowlight" bg="30,30,30" bg2="30,30,30" />
 <element id="Panel.ChildBody.ScrollBar.Lowlight" bg="31,31,31" bg2="31,31,31" />
 <element id="Panel.ScrollBar.Lowlight" bg="31,31,31" bg2="31,31,31" />
 <element id="LeftNavigator.ScrollBar.Lowlight" bg="31,31,31" bg2="31,31,31" />
 <element id="TrackInfoPanel.ScrollBar.Lowlight" bg="31,31,31" bg2="31,31,31" />
 <element id="NowPlayingList.ScrollBar.Lowlight" bg="32,32,32" bg2="32,32,32" />
</colours>
</root>


P.S.
I just edited the original skin to use slightly thinner scrollbars.

Thanks again bud, highly appreciated.

But the mod isn't working as intended. It hides the scroll bars, all good there but unlike Elemental mod, this one only shows the scroll bars when the cursor is hovered on it and not on entire pane. In Elemental mod, that you gave me, scroll bars show when the cursor is placed anywhere on the pane scroll bars runs on.

I'm sorry to bother you this much, I understand the hassle. but this is too good to miss out on.

If you add this to the code:

Code
<settings>
 <element id="ScrollBarHighlightMouseOverPanel">true</element>
</settings>

(put it just below </colours> and above </root>)

Is that doing what you expect?
I think the wording  'mouseoverpanel' is a bit misleading though, since I believe the scrollbar only appears when your mouse is over the small scrollbar area, and not when you hover over the related panel.
That would indeed be better in my opinion, but I don't think there is a skin setting for that.

B.t.w., I can't remember the Elemental mod I did for you.
Did that one work on the whole panel instead of only on the bar?

Now it's working as intended. A million thanks hiccup  :-*

Both Elemental and this skin doesn't show the scrollbars on hovering over entire panel, just the scrollbar pane it runs on. This makes it easy to spot the scrollbar, where it might be, just have to hover the cursor across the bar.

No, that too works only on the bars. It's fine though what you suggested would be cool.

Main changes:
- The Jukebox view is skinned.
- The readability/contrast of sub-text fields in 'Album and Tracks' view and in the Expanded Album panel is improved.

note: both these updates only function under MusicBee 3.4
(which is currently under development and in alpha release state)
