Three skins that never saw the daylight
« on: 8 Dec '06 - 02:34 »
I've developed several ideas and skin prototypes during the last months/years, but I never came around to finish these three. I don't know whether I should finish them... Go on, rip them to pieces.

"XMP3"


"XMP Underground Radio" (fairly recent skin)


"Windows Classic Wide Edition" (almost complete, just have to correct some things. But now, as there are several derivations of my original WClassic skin available, I don't quite bother anymore.)

Love Underground Radio! Definitely different. PLEASE finish it!
Perhaps for a visual effect, the car could drive around the building. ;)

I like the shape of XMP3, but not the color :). The Underground Radio looks really cool (although it's a space-eater). I think you should finish them all ;).

Hehe, the car is the position slider. ;)

Underground radio is neat even if only for the fact that it's 3-d pixel art.:)

Perhaps there could also be a motorcycle cop cruising round the radio station who arrests anyone not using XMPlay.

I really like the XMP3 skin, the colors and all.. it's a real eye candy :). I hope it gets finished.

I agree! The skin is very nice looking  8)
But it would be nice if it was smaller... ::)

FYI, the phrase goes something like, "never saw the light of day."

Just thought I would mention this for future reference. ;)

By the way, I think the "XMP Underground Radio" is an interesting concept. I like the whole isometric / pseudo-3D perspective.

Hahahaha, the underground radio is the best skin i've ever seen!!! is the concept, it doesn't look like a player, it looks more like a building, did you note that???

No, serious, the underground radio skin is great and it has to see the light of day!!!!

Rah'Dick, When you finish Underground Radio(you will finish it won't you?!), will the Mini mode be a single story dwelling?

Rah'Dick, Any progress on Underground Radio?
I was hoping you would give us a Christmas present!

Rah'Dick,
I don't mean to be a pest, but are you working on Underground Radio?

Currently, I work for Audi and thus don't have much time at hand for other things... Sorry. By the way, I stopped XMPUGRadio development in the first place because I needed some new skinning features - like transparency in the info window side bitmaps - before I can finish this one. I already sent a copy to Ian for inspection, but the file seemingly got swallowed by /dev/null.

Yes I agree .....why are all the skins so huge?

They take up a good portion of the desktop!

Maybe to create a contrast to so many small skins. Some people like (and also request) bigger skins.

A good skin means to me a big skin in Normal mode, with every control XMPlay has available and a reasonable list, and a small one in MiniMode, with just the title, position, volume, time and pulse-meters (or whatever they are called  ;D )

I loved xmp3, and underground radio is a cute concept.  I hope xmp3 sees the light of day and underground radio would also be cool.  Whether or not you get a chance to finish these I thank you for sharing your ideas with us.

G'luck  :)
