NeverStop, the first skin developed by Bahamondes & Furan for the XMPlay Skinning Competition, is accepting once more suggestions for its improvement. Bahamondes & Furan will be now much more attentive to the community's feedback, so its new development will depend mostly on what the forum users say about it.

Remember to download the latest version of our skin from the Support Site: http://support.xmplay.com/files_view.php?file_id=648.

As usual we hear you @ B&F.

BONUS: We are looking for color palettes to be used as variations.



Development Roadmap:


  • 1st Phase. Feedback and Suggestions. Feature Requests.
  • 2nd Phase. First draft. Presentation to the community.
  • 3rd Phase. Community feedback and suggestions towards the First Draft.
  • 4th Phase. Second draft. Presentation to the community.
  • 5th Phase. Community feedback and suggestions towards the Second Draft. Voting on colors.
  • 6th Phase. Final draft. Presentation of color variations.
  • 7th Phase. Community conclussions.

yes, thx so much for that 'NeverStop' skin.

Recently i have been examining some BS.Player skins and i have found some nice designs as well the ones for XMplay. Some of them are just a piece of Art.

Thank you, Nicolas and Kitsune, for this great skin! It is my favourite.
Thanks to your source files, I tweaked it a bit last year to make my own variant (screenshot of mini-player+library in attachment).

I added one feature:
  • a time position slider for the mini-player, as I often use it.
The other changes in my variant are a matter of look and feel:
  • skin colour: sepia (with two main tones, as in the original)
  • some text colours
    • the text in the library window title bar:
      made more easily readable with a bright text on a dark background
    • selected tracks
  • the triangle marking the column used for sorting is made more noticeable (by colour contrast)
  • fonts used: PT Mono, PT Sans Caption (free fonts from http://www.paratype.ru)
  • big XMPlay icon replaced (source: http://ncrow.deviantart.com/art/Icon-XMplay-136025061)
  • changed the "Library" button in the Playlist/Library window (toggled-on state)
  • added transparency around the big scroller button (to its left)

I think it's about all...
