Well the picture is nice, but I'd have to try out the real skin.

Perhaps the stars should be gold in the currently playing track like in the Dark skin? I know it isn't like that for the Grey skin, but I'm just curious if anyone else would think that would look better.

I meant the currently playing track's stars. The stars are still that silvery shade in the mini-mode and when the player is at the bottom.

Was there ever any update to this skin with regards to the stars in the mini-player not matching? I never saw one. Also, could the min/max/exit buttons be streamlined into the menu/title bar like in the dark skin?

Updated Screenshot: http://j.imagehost.org/view/0316/Cool_Blue

Changes:
- Star-rating color in miniplayer adjusted to white. Not sure what I've last posted but over here those where yellow, didn't liked it tho, so I've switched it to white.
- Brighter looking mini-player.
- New splash-screen.

@thund3r:
take a picture of the buttons like you like them and upload that here.

Enjoy !

Update to the stars is nice. It just wasn't consistent before, but all better now.

As for the menu bar and min/max/exit buttons, I just wanted them to be the same as the Dark skin, but blue (since it's the blue skin). I would take a picture, but it wouldn't help explain anything since it's nothing new. Basically, in most of the other skins and this blue one, the menu bars take up two 'rows', the top one has the logo and then on the far right are the window/exit buttons like all windows programs. Below that are the file, edit, etc buttons. The Dark skin however has all of this in one row with sleeker window/exit buttons. I think the same should happen for Blue skin.

It's a diffrent logo. one I designed. the original is the one the forum's community picked some time ago.

@thund3r:
Here's the thing, in the dark skin the uppermost border is completely black, so the menu buttons are set to black as well and all is good.
In here the border has a gradient in it, making it look round.. there is no way to make the menu buttons 'sink' in to that.
I'll see when Steven has some free time on his hands and maybe try and see if there is a way around this.
