Those of us who are noobs might not know this. I didn't.

You cannot simply copy the download .ZIP file to the MediaMonkey\Skins folder. MM will not "see" it, so you won't have it in your list of choices.

You must first change the filename extension from .ZIP to .MSZ If you have your Folder Options set to "Hide extensions for known file types", then you will need to change that, else Windows will not let you change the filename extension.

THEN you copy the file to the MediaMonkey\Skins folder, and MM will see it, and it will show up as one of your choices.

Alternately, you may be able to change the download filename extension before you begin the download. I've found that sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't. Not sure why yet.

Anyway, great job on the skin! BlueGlass didn't come with my latest download (new computer, had to start from scratch), and I'm glad to have it back. Thanks!

Well, firstly, I used Internet Explorer, I saved it on my desktop but it wouldn't work.
Then, I clicked on "save link as" as u said, saved it into Program Files/Mediamonkey/Skins, and now, it works.

Thanks a lot :-)

i know you guys like the blue glass skin it is okay with me i don't like the going from dark player to light backgrounds on the text area it washes out the player and makes the dark controlls on it hard for me to see. but you others like it.

i still wish it would go away, not sure as i have not seen how this one was created but the original one was really hard to find any images to change and they were mostly small 3 or 4 pixel squares in that one, at least the one i tore apart and looked at. those small very few images make it hard to tear apart and learn how to skin with, which is what most newbies do with the skins they like.

but if you added all the images and codes in to this version then that would make it a great skin to me then because of the easy of copying to learn skinning.

those are the only grips i have with this skin, if you did not already address them that is. :-?

I have always liked the Blue Glass skin player, but have never really liked the panel backgrounds...Navy being my favorite. I wish someone who knows how to skin would make the panels the same blue as the player, maybe a bit darker, with nice white text. I would also love to see and updated MR skin and SI. Are you up for it?

Screenshot just made me want to hear some Shania.

Nyn, I clicked on your link for the Install/Uninstall script. The thread says it's no longer available.


Edit: When I said I would like a nice blue panel above, I meant panel headers and anything else that is not blue. The navy skin has good colors.

Is there any screenshot of this?

Nice work! Thanks!
You should consider making matching MonkeyRok, Lyrics Viewer, and Song Info Panel skins. It would be a nice MM setup.

Thanks again for your work.

Hello Again - I have made some more changes to my modified Blue Glass skin. In addition to all of the original changes, I have now done the following:

- Fixed some drawing problems that showed up on my Windows 7 system (I never saw any problem on XP). There was a random horizontal line on the bottom of both the Track Properties and Options dialogs, and also some vertical lines near the right edge of the tabs in the Track Properties.
- Made all disabled and read-only edit/combo boxes appear grayed out instead of having the normal white color
- Changed the color of the thin line around the edge of the windows, tabs, etc. from bright cyan to a nicer blue that matches the player
- Minor changes to some of the font colors (Status bar text, static text, caption)

I hope you like it. You can download the skin from the link in my original post. If Windows changes the extension to .zip for some reason, just change it back to .msz. Enjoy! :D
