yeah this looks good and i can see the ratings clearly. but i think the file,edit,view tab options should come in the second tab after the logo. Its fine this way too but the former would be better like all other software applications

Could someone edit the skin to give the repeat and shuffle buttons more contrast when enabled?

For example:

Hi - love the colour scheme on this skin, agree with the below comment about contrast.


I would use this all the time except I don't like the top bar being so much thicker than in the other skins, takes up unnecessary space on my limited screen. 

Is it possible to change it back to the default, like the Blue skin?

is you use the link just above, it should have the menu merged with the title bar

Thanks, Steven. 

While I've got you here, has anyone ever request Americanized spelling as an option or default?
No offense intended, but it looks odd - even to my Canadian eyes... (ie Customised vs Customized, etc.)

thanks again

maybe when i come to do the support for translations a US-English translation could be done ;)

Here is an updated version with higher contrast on the shuffle/repeat buttons.

Without knowing much about the skinning code, it looks difficult (impossible?) currently to make these different colors than the player control buttons, so they are just more contrasting shades of grey, not blue like the pic above.

Working fantastically now, looks great.

I used to use WinAmp, but it was never as easy and logical or good-looking as MusicBee has become.  I will definitely donate to the cause. 

Just don't ever let it become corporate...

 ;)

Thank you!

whoever next updates this skin could the 3rd setting be changed as follows:
  <element id="TitlebarInactiveForeColour" bg="255,255,255" />
when MB loses focus the current setting blanks out the MusicBee text
