I made a couple changes.
I manually went into the cov file and changed all covers to align perfect.
I removed the play 4 free button.
made a couple adjustments to some other things also.

still have the random album in middle. didn't see where it could be in cover file.

here is the latest:

Shall have a look tomorrow or soon anyway weekend has started and beers have been flowing. What did you do to the ini file to make the missing labels show up then?

They still don't show in the skin tool. but I figured out where in the ini file their position was and just changed the numbers.

Ask a stupid question and get a stupid answer lol

What numbers did you change can you go into any more detail apart from changing numbers in an ini file.

Sod that for a game of soldiers, Barry can do some bug fixing. I wouldn't have the patience to go through ini files and then understand what they was. I did look at the ini files a long time ago but too me it is all a load of numbers and junk, too go through 700 lines of nonsense and actually find what you want I am impressed.

My main bug is the extra album showing in the middle of the album view. I tried figuring it out but I couldn't.

1 small other thing is how can I adjust the song facts?


Here are screen shots of the skin. when its done I can give you final version and we can post it in skin releases.

BUG: Quickjump artist labels didn't show (FIXED)

Error Trapped Skintool

This fixes the labels not showing on the tracklisting screen, You have the check box in use featured artist, take that out and resave the cov to remove that extra album. You also have a couple of pages set to be PNG not JPG. The pin back is one and i think the other is the player back.

I'm back after the mother of all hang overs, couldn't even sit at a monitor. Skin looks great anyway not as good as mine but passable ;) I'll give it a test some point today.

Great update Barry works for me as well I only tested it quickly on track listings, so no bug hunting from me as yet.

Shower time and then into town for me soon but I might start playing later on today at some point, I need to get back into the land of the living again.

when I choose a letter in album view I notice the background is the player control background. Is there any way to switch this?

I personally do not think that there is but I might be wrong, Barry will be able to answer that more than I can. I think with all skins I have tried they come up with one image, when I tried to put yours together quickly it was black.

I just had a quick try of the latest version, and if you want my view where you have the albums and the more icons, I personally would say that they are too high up the page but then I am using a different resolution screen, but they do not look central between the top and the bottom of the screen.

It might just be my screen resolution, I am testing on my TV rather than a monitor, so on yours it might look ok.

Your best bet would be to check another skin and see if it has the same problem as you are asking, if it does then it probably answers your question.
