is it possible to change the icon or color?

And thanks for this great player man, it's crazy how many features it has!

Congrats with the skin, nice work.

There are five new elements for several drive icons. They are:

NetworkDriveIcon - network share
WpdDeviceIcon - portable devices (WPD and ipod)
UsbDeviceIcon - usb devices
StorageIcon - for all other root drives eg. virtual drive
OpticalDriveIcon - for optical drives

Note that they will not show up in current MusicBee releases, only in upcoming MB 3.4.

This is an awesome skin, exactly what I've been looking for! It fits so well with everything else dark in Windows 10, particularly the grey one for me.

Update v1.1:

Disabled the borders
Changed more icons
Moved the love icon to the right side (if you choose to hide the icon, the progress bar and time will not move leaving a blank space instead. i will update when i figure out how to fix)

Cheers everyone.

Goddamnit, i think deviantart changed something in the backend. Changed to mediafire.

Really great skins!
I have only one question: I installed the 4 Roboto Fonts that cam with the skin, but I'm not sure where should I use them.
Could you post a screenshot about where should I put them?
Title: Re: Dark W10
Post by: diego on December 05, 2019, 01:48:31 AM
The fonts are optional. It's there because i made this skin using these fonts and tried to align the icons according to it, Roboto Condensed size 11 on header bar and bottom panel specifically. Segoe UI 11 looks just a bit misaligned, size 9 is fine. Roboto Slab is for the for the lyrics on theater view.

I just installed this skin and now I can't open musicbee anymore..

I have the windows store version
Title: Re: Dark W10
Post by: psychoadept on December 17, 2019, 06:36:23 PM
Where did you put the skin? The Windows store version is notoriously difficult to work with, you might try a portable install instead.
Title: Re: Dark W10
Post by: diego on December 17, 2019, 07:12:13 PM
He probably installed from the menu.

I'm guessing that it was one of the green or purple versions, since they depend on the grey skin and the grey was not installed first. I don't have the windows store version so i don't know where the files go once they are installed from the menu.

You have to delete the skin file now, i don't know any other solution. I'll put a warning on the original post about this. Later i convert everything to xmlc.
Title: Re: Dark W10
Post by: diego on December 18, 2019, 01:53:10 AM
Update v1.4

Updated more icons
Fixed misaligned notification icon
Updated green and purple versions to xmlc (you can install them individually now)

Yeah I think it was the purple version, there was no skins apart from the pre installed ones inside the windows apps skins folder so I ended up just resetting music bee. Luckily I had my settings saved from a couple of weeks ago so It wasn't a catastrophe.

it looks nice, the only thing i see is the icons are blurry, maybe because i have a high dpi screen?

Yeah, this skin is not compatible with high dpi. I intend to add support later though.

I must be doing something wrong bc I can't get the icons to become visible :-(
There also seems a little bug as artist and title are not good aligned on the bottom of the screen (should be left, next to buttons or centered I think)

Enable the progress bar. Right click the panel > panel layout > show progress bar. It doesn't work nice without.

Ok, got it working. Also the icons next to "music", "now playing", "podcast", I managed to enable them.

But the icons next to artist, album, bitrate....I can't find it...

Absolutely wonderful stuff. Good job diego.

One request, will it be possible for you to to make a variant with auto hiding of scroll bars and show only when hovered upon ?

In any case, big thanks!

Love those Icons.

Edit: noticed a potential bug.

With the track information panel header being hidden, there's band of the header still visible.

Download this and put on the same folder that you have the skin (.xmlc file) installed:
https://gist.githubusercontent.com/diego-sergio/1a15bea4367ccdad9b9ce3bfe205b97a/raw/febb5903d811f09191513c1af9603536d42f86e6/Dark%20W10%20-%20Transparent%20Scrollbars.xml

Change the line <root dependsOn="Dark W10 - Roboto - Purple.xmlc"> to the skin variation that you're using (it needs to be exactly the same name).

With the track information panel header being hidden, there's band of the header still visible.
This is normal, it follows the color of the header, if you want to change that follow hiccup's guide:

probably, that's why i said it the name of the skin in the xml needs to be the same name as the skin file.

this is only for standard skins, mine is a bitmap skin (it's not possible)
