Barry,
Did you get a chance to look at this? I really need a widescreen skin for latest version. Or if anyone else could help me get it working. Would really appreciate it.

Thanks.....

Where is this skin project? Is someone still working on it? I really like and prefer the clean simple look without all the busy eye candy.

What version are you talking about?  If its v9 I just asked barry.  I think you will have to edit the v_2.ini so that all of the buttons are png instead of gif.  Lets wait and see whar Barry says first.

Ok I got my working.  Just load your skin to v9 save it ,then go to the skin folder find the files ending in  v2.ini.almost all of the files should have then.  Edit the v2.ini replace .gif for .png for every file.  Dont forget you have to have png version of your gif buttons.  Reload the skin you should see the seemless png button now.

This is correct.

Please note that the proper V9 skintool will not support loading of legacy skins so they will need to be created from the ground up. Loading of none V2 ini files will be dropped.

Are you talking about this skin? Do you have it working correctly? I have it partially working. some things don't work like audio video karaoke. If you have it working more than me can you upload it and i'll try to finish it

Thanks

Is there a semi working copy of this skin for version 9? If so could someone please post it so I can make an attempt to help develop the skin?
Thanks

The link is in the post at the top of this page.

I don't have access to a widescreen monitor still, I just read back through this thred and forgot a lot of what went on. I am working 100% on the skintool now and once that is converted over to fully support PNG I think it will not take long to get this skin up to V9 spec. I have now completed the playlist save screen, it's taking me about a day per screen so far.

Thanks, I missed that link  :o
I also missed this was for a wide screen so I will have to redesign the entire thing as I don't have any wide touch screens either. :tommy
