Hammerteil!

Aber mir sind zwei Bugs aufgefallen:
1. Der Pausebutton hat noch ´n Farbfehler (Mask-colour)
2. rechte untere Ecke des Infowindows passt noch nicht ganz

But hey, as i said:
it´s reeeally getting hot in here now!!!
XMPlay rocks more and more

Output Options -> Auto Load Default Settings.  The state of the button is very difficult to distinguish.  I would rather it glowed blue.  :)

@Ripguy: Meinst Du die kleine dunkle Ecke auf dem Pausebutton? - Sollte ich vielleicht ändern... Ist nämlich der Schatten vom 3D-Objekt! =)

Aber ansonsten... Wo ist da ein Masken-Fehler?

Zur rechten unteren Ecke des Info-Windows: Ich weiß, da hab ich's nicht so genau genommen... ;)

@Olego: Yeah, I might change it from a non-filled circle to a filled circle when enabled... Whatcha think?

Oh, by the way... Some extra material:

Wow, so there's a whole science to creating skins... Great work!  :)

I can't seem to play the .avi, though.

@Rahdick

ohoh, shame on me... :-[

...Die Fehler tauchen nur bei XMPlay 2.5 auf.
Hab´s grad mit V2.6 probiert und sieht alles tadellos aus
(No bugs, brilliant look!)

yo ;)

Now that you mention it, there should probably be a "made for 2.6" note beside the skin... I'll add it :)

Btw, great "behind the scenes" stuff RD! :D

@brightguy:
The AVI is encoded with DivX.

That was only ´cause i know Rahdick is from germany

BTW: I should have a look in the new skin-documentation for what has changed in V2.6

The most significant change is, that the control masks can now overlap! :)

Btw, where exactly are you from?

I really like the AVI, how did you make it?  And can I have that program?  :)

Indeed.  I must have spent an hour playing with that, already.  :laugh:

I always like to consider the possibility that I am actually retarded, so here goes:

Overlapping control masks, how does that work and what's it good for? In my present debilitating mental state, I can't for the love of assorted deities fathom that. If I bashed my skull against the wall, perchance I could divine some answers from that pulpy mess...hmm...

Imagine a rectangle made out of two triangles.
One Triangle may be the Play Button, the other the Stop Button.
If you move the mouse over the Play Button, the whole rectangle hilighted, instead of only one triangle, that is because of it's bounding box is overlapping with the other control.
This is fixed now. :)

Ich wohne in Berlin.
Bis vor nem Monat bin ich regelmäßig in Stuttgart gewesen, wegen der Bundeswehr! :) War in Stetten stationiert, das ist in der Nähe von Sigmaringen.

*tries to understand the German, but fails*

Wow, I feel like a minority enough in my CS classes (most students there--or their parents--are from somewhere in Asia), and now I can't even speak German.  :laugh:

The clearest example of what RD says is in the next/prev buttons of the Pager skin... compare in 2.6 and an older version :)

One question for RahDick, on the preview you showed the playlist something like this:

Item1 Item6
-Item2 Item7
--Item3 Item8
-Item4 Item9
Item5 Item10

What happened to that?

I abandoned that idea because you could hardly see the song titles. Just scrolling was cool, tho ;D

Really nice skin, RahDick :D! Good work on that.. there's only one thing that kinda bothers me in that: it's the upper left "corner" of the skin - I think it should have some kind of frame around it, because often in windows the background is white, and thus the skin melts into it, not so pretty like ::). Other than that, it's just great. Perhaps the best around :).

Hmm.. Perhaps you missed my comment on your new skin, RahDick, so I just bring this thread up again :)

RahDick: ah...I get it. All in all, one could say that it now supports non-quadrangle shaped masks (i.e. not simply using a quadrangled bounding box), the masks actually don't overlap in the bitmap (as that would require some sort of colour blending), right?

Clear as filtered water :)
