Hi, folks!
I'm trying to edit the skin, but there are a couple of questions.
How can i change the color of 1, 2 and 3 - https://goo.gl/aeQIo8 - to RGB 40, 40, 40?
XML file - http://paste.ee/p/BaGDk

Can i edit XMLC files somehow?

Thank you,
Sasha.

Those are image files, that you can not adjust by setting an rgb value for.
They are small .png images, which are base64 encoded to go into the xml.
You uselessly find them at the end of the xml skin file, and are named such as:
<element id="FormBorderTop">
<element id="FormCloseButton">
followed by a lot of 'garbage' characters. Searching the forum should help you top learn to create those yourself if you want to.

It is not possible to edit .xmlc skinfiles. They have bitmapped elements for the player panel, and are compiled (hence the 'c')

Thank you!
But in general, a strange decision - no way to edit the skin in notepad, like early.)

Nothing was changed in this respect.
You can accomplish just fine what you want with 'standard' xml skinning (and using a graphic editor and base64 encoder).
B.t.w. you could try disabling 'skin Windows borders' in preferences, and see if you can get the result you want for the skin you are designing with that setting.

Only if you want to also redesign the player panel you will need to use the skincreator, and that will result in xmlc skin files which can't be edited afterwards.
So the decision is all yours.
