If you're interested, here's a preview of what I'll call Scamelon 2.0.

https://www.box.com/s/qksnmpy5sb6ycatsp8gl

It's a much more drastic revision of Bee-liever's version than I planned, thanks to my breaking it and merging it with the dummy skin to fix it (you'll still see vestiges of the dummy skin in some places - I'll get to those) and flailing around trying to figure out which piece goes where.  But the major changes are the reduction/unification of the color scheme and a similar treatment to the gradients.

I don't promise it'll look very good with any layout other than mine yet.  (Don't mind the pink font - that's a highlighting thing.)



Any advice/suggestions on how to make the tabs in the Track Details panel work well, or how to get a light border all the way around the sidebars without also introducing a line across the top of the toolbar?

Thanks scampbll, but the credit goes to BinghiFire.
He did all the hard work creating the images and layout for the player, I just tweaked the settings a bit and compiled it through the Skin Creator.

It was fun doing this skin - a real community effort  :)

It is.  :)  And has given me great appreciation for your skills.  I'm still figuring everything out.

Thanks for sharing this skin  :) Looks really fresh and attractive!

I like the idea of posting a splash screen alongside screenshots of the skin.
And especially this one is very original.

Well done  :)

Can anybody advise me on what's up with my Preferences border?  The normal window border is fine.  I checked the default skin and Darknight Blue, and those look okay, so it must be my skin.



Here's the current file, if it helps: https://www.box.com/s/kjvb2fxbeshh1eo9b1np

Edit: now it's fine, and I'm not sure what I changed.  It had been doing that for a while.  I'll keep an eye on it.

using a base64 decoder, it advises that the following are not in a valid base64 format
FormBorderBottom
FormBorderLeft
FormBorderRight

It's possible that when you've split those lines into 76 character lengths you may have introduced a stray spacing character

Since I've done the whole base64 thing by trial and error, I'd buy that.  :)  Thanks!

If it happens again, I'll take a closer look.


Edit, unrelated: Bee-liever, could I trouble you for the re-colored melons image without the splash screen stuff on top?  I had a little idea I want to try out...

Nice work!  I'd wondered if someone was going to take advantage of those new elements soon.
