New dark-themed skin added today. See screenshots in the original post.

Edit: bumping this topic because of an important update to the skin uploaded earlier.

This skin is incredible, thank you. I wasn't into skins that much and just used the default layout for a long time. My MB went from plain looking to looking really amazing. Especially the bottom is beautiful.

Great Skin. Just one problem. Play/Pause, Next and Previous buttons don't work when using Progress Bar instead of Waves. Can you please fix this? 🤔

I have been using this skin quite a bit and not had any issues. Perhaps you could post a screenshot and explain some what you mean by "buttons don't work"

I'm not able to reproduce this behavior on my setup. Which version of MusicBee are you running?

Windows 10 store version
i think this skin is using some features of v3.2 which wont be available in the store version for a few weeks
You could use the standard version of MB instead and update to v3.2 from https://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=24754.msg146605#new

So, I'll wait a few weeks and see if it works in 3.2. Thanks

Didn't think I'd ever find a skin that would top DarkRED for me, but I can't go back after trying this. Excellent work :)

Your Redstone_dark is by far the best dark skin for me.
It's beautifully shaded dark, yet there is enough contrast in the bright white text to make it superbly usable.
I love the way Music Explorer song lists pick up the dominant color of the selected album cover.
Borderless, unshaded drop downs take some getting used to, especially on black backgrounds, but now I like them!
The light blue line around popup menus distinguishes them nicely.

Only one enhancement request IMHO so far:

Please make "# tracks" text, which appears under each item in the "Album Artist" sidebar, more legible.  The very light gray is barely visible even at a reasonable display contrast setting.  Same for "# albums" under each item in "Artist" sidebar, etc.  This problem is present in every dark skin I've looked at, so maybe this font style is not accessible?

Hi man, I was wondering if you could release a version with the control bar a bit more thin?

How do you make the player bar compact like in the screenshots?
