This is the greatest Winamp skin I've seen man! Everything about it, is too cool. When will the final version be released?

Also man, would it be possible to have an option like this...

I have my playlist minimized underneath the main window. My whole player is docked up top. When I maximize my playlist, it moves itself up to the top of the main window and i can't see the whole thing, only half of it. I am thinking it does this, because the playlist opens bottom to top. Would it be possible to have an option where windows would maximize from top to bottom? Or anyway I could do it in Winamp?

This is not a skin issue, but rather a Winamp issue. However, please read this: Final word on unicode.

Wow, awesome skin. One question though: How do you keep the notifier on the screen? :huh:

cupsarap, you'll have to double-click the top of the PL regular/shademode window to get it to expand from top to bottom. The second button from the right is now used to expand it from bottom to top, as requested by leedogg.

KZWings, set the Notifier to Forever (Hold Time = 21) to keep it onscreen all the time.

Tandy, here's how you get the coverart to show different pictures for each album. Place an image called folder.jpg or cover.jpg or front.jpg in the folder with your music. Here's a screenshot to better describe what I mean.

Somewhat off-topic...

axi, you have an odd user title there under your avatar, wouldn't you say?

That's in response to another site (which I won't mention) who listed this player as dead and not showing any sparks of life anymore.

Combined with flyakiteosx theme kit, ur skin works superb!!

When I minimized and maxd, the original winamp skin displayed, is it because of the winamp or ur skin? Im using pre 5.05 version.

democles, when the original winamp skin displayed, you had minimized winamp and then restored it? Or you had put the playlist in shademode and then returned to the normal layout? I'm just confused because there is no way to "maximize" the player.

Tandy, senior is correct in that you must organize your music. This skin looks for an image in the folder where your music is. Create a folder for each album you have and in that folder place an image called cover.jpg or front.jpg. This image is what this skin looks for on every track change.

Tandy, there's no way to have it to show the cover set in the tags of each mp3 (as musicmatch does).

Hi axialix,

First things first: very very nice skin! I am really loving it.

If you are working on the cover displaying feature maybe you would please consider add another option?

In all my music folders there is a .jpg that contains the cover of the album. But my music manager (Helium 2005) names them cover ?Artist ? Album.jpg? automatically. So maybe it is possible to let your cover feature chose the .jpg file by preference?

This is what I mean: if there are multiple .jpg in a music folder, it could prefer a file with the word ?front? in it. Next with the word ?cover? in it, next with ?whatever? and when there are no files with these words in it it could chose the first one on alphabet (or you could prevent it form choosing a file with the word ?back? in it?)

I don?t know if this is a lot of work to build in but it would be very very very great! Otherwise I (and I think a lot of people with me) have to rename all the .jpg files ( > 300 )

It?s just an idea?

Here's the deal folks, this coverart business is a limitation of Winamp, not this skin. Have you ever seen another winamp skin that would get covers from ID3 tags or anywhere else but your hard drive? If you have, boy I'd sure like to know about it. As for renaming 300+ files, you can do it in about 5 seconds using Magic File Renamer or another similiar file renaming program.

wow, first of all, i'd like to say: very nice skin! i've been using it for a few weeks now and i love it!

secondly...can you set the PL shade to always on top, while leaving everything else not always on top? if so, how? :D

The Stay On Top feature applies to all windows, so currently it cannot just do one or two. But, you could always hide all the other windows and just leave the PL shademode visible.

oh, damn...

then what's the point of the PL shade? isn't it basically the same as the main window, but with fewer buttons?
