Thanks for the new large skins.  For those of us who have to increase font sizes as we get older, this is a welcome addition.

Those of us who are visually impaired and run at higher screen resolutions because of that (1440x900) thank you sincerely. :)

Ive cleaned up the gradients and fonts for the min_x2 skins, Neutron_x2 and WMP10_x2 are next.  I can also do this fairly easily for any other skins for XMPlay where the source is available and the author permits.

Were the other skins ever finished?

I hate to keep people waiting so here is another update :)
Min and Neutron are nearly done, please point out anything I might have missed or could be improved.  I have to improve wmp10_x2 still.

[edit] see original post for download link and current screenshots.

do we just put the folder in the skins folder?

I like these skins, but I think 150% would have been perfect.

yes, for example "xmplay\skins\min\panel_main.bmp"

I think 150% versions would be a better fit for 1024x768 and 1280x1024 users, its obviously more difficult than a 2x scale but I can probably do it for min and neutron.

here is a beta release of Neutron 1.5x :D  I just need a little more time to fix the output panel aka the equalizer bar.  I am liking it so much better than the previous two that I am considering renaming them neutron (small) and neutron (large).

Eagerly awaiting the final.  One with neon blue replacing the orange would be even cooler. :)

I'd like to see a white/silver version of it (don't like too much black,I'd rather have more contrasting colors,like the WAClassic skin)
And please add a VU meter,it's the only thing missing from this excellent skin.
The 2x skins were too large even at 1600x1200. The 1.5x one is just about perfect :)

Out of curiosity... what is the point of having a VU meter? Unless you're using a device for sound recording, I don't see any benefit.

For detecting whether there is true silence in a track or just low-volume background noise,when ripping/saving to disk,as a *useful* visualization effect (to visually "see" the dynamics of a track),for troubleshooting problems with your audio hardware/software when they arise,etc.

You can also use the built-in spectrum analyzer visualizations for that purpose and they might actually give you better results (one measures volume and frequency, while the other measures volume and frequency over time) than a VU meter (which only measures volume).

When stereo channels have opposite values, built-in spectrum analyzer displays nothing.

first: wrong thread i guess :P
second: that is quite normal and you already gave the answer why: opposite waveforms kill each other if you downsample them to a mono signal.
