Yes it's a lovely change from the DarkCyan I used for ages. Your skin makes the text so much more readable. :)
However, I would like to change the color of "Playing Track And Artist" info to white., makes it stand out a bit.
Can I do it myself?

"Playing Track And Artist" info to white

If you mean the RH panel, search for id="Panel.ChildBody.Default" in the .xml, change the fg value to "255,255,255" and that will make the text white.

Hey thanks, sorry I said it wrong. I meant the Artist and Track info above the Progress Bar. How do I change that to white?
Setting the RH Panel text to white also looks great, btw. :) Look below.

Not a bad looking modification at all  :)

For the player bar text, id="PlayerFlat.DisplayPanel" is the element to change.

not a problem, boroda74 :)
and I didn't even know they made an 'Arsenic' windowblinds theme.  Serendipity I suppose ;)

Hey Bee-liver,

Congrats on the great looking skin!
I have a couple of questions regarding elements I didn't get when I installed your skin. Can you please explain how did you get the "YYYY" element appear next to the vertical A-Z jumper bar? and also the "Released" date on the upper right side of each album in the main area?

Thanks a lot!

Can you please explain how did you get the "YYYY" element appear next to the vertical A-Z jumper bar?

It's not the A-Z jumper bar really.  It's the column browser, 2 columns - vertical. One with "YYYY" and the other using a virtual tag "A-Z" [$Group($Sort(<Album Artist>),1)].  Can't take the credit for this one, came from the post here


and also the "Released" date on the upper right side of each album in the main area?

Thanks a lot!

The "Released:" date is a combination of a custom tag and a virtual tag.  I have a custom tag <Release Date Sort> with the format YYYYMMDD that I have set up to use for sorting.

This allows for the use 20150000 if you only know the year, or 20150200 if you don't know the exact day. Something that can't be done if you use the year/date tag.

I then set up the virtual tag "Release Date" with formula;
Code
Released: $If($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4)=0000,<YYYY>,$If($Right($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=00,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=01,"Jan "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=02,"Feb "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=03,"Mar "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=04,"Apr "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=05,"May "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=06,"Jun "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=07,"Jul "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=08,"Aug "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=09,"Sep "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=10,"Oct "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=11,"Nov "<YYYY>,"Dec "<YYYY>))))))))))),$If($Left($Right($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2),1)=0,$Right($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),1),$Right($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2))" "$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=01,"Jan "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=02,"Feb "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=03,"Mar "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=04,"Apr "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=05,"May "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=06,"Jun "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=07,"Jul "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=08,"Aug "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=09,"Sep "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=10,"Oct "<YYYY>,$If($Left($Right(<Release Date Sort>,4),2)=11,"Nov "<YYYY>,"Dec "<YYYY>)))))))))))))
to convert to the format DD Mon YYYY.

It can then be used in the "Album and Tracks Layout" for the RH grouping header.

Bee-liever: "Arsenic" is an absolutely marvellous skin, alongside others you have designed. Is "Arsenic" slated for redesign for MusicBee 3? What about the others?

Thanks.

@ WannaBee
I will be culling a few skins (based on their download stats) as I do the redesigns for MB3.
But don't worry, Arsenic won't be one of them :)

BTW, thanks for the compliment on my skins.
