Heres a slightly modified BlueMonkey theme for MediaMonkey:Download Here!

Just download and unzip to your Skins folder.

The Tree and List backgrounds have been changed, as has the player skin. See what you guys think. 8)

Using it and loving it. Much Thanks! Pity more people don't invest time to make skins. :D

Looks very nice.

One problem though is that the background skins are of limited size so on large resolution screens you can see the background tile (I have it tiled in the tracklisting).

I'll take a look at fixing the size of the backgrounds when i get some time, probably at the weekend.

Pleased to hear you guys like it anyway. If i had more time id get into full blown theme design.

The thing is that the standard MM themes can tile without looking like they tiled. With your design this is slightly harder. If you make a very big image people on small resolutions wouldn't see the full image. If you make a small image you would get it tiled on high resolution screens.
Even making diferent skins for each resolution wouldn't work as people have the windows in different size as well as the app it self.

Furthermore I would like to see the backgrounds you created a little lighter in color, it's quite dark in my opinion.

But I'm glad that someone is trying to make more skins.

If you feel up to it you can tackle an iTunes like skin for MM as it has been requested.

i agree with lowlander.

but go get one of my old media monkey skins i have them on winamp skins site now under classic skins as they work on both media monkey and winamp

download one of them jungle monkey, wacky monkey,christmas toys, trucking,

they all have the image size for the media monkey players in that works on 800x600 screens which is easiest for the computer to adjust.

just unzip the wsz file of the winamp skin and look for the media monkey bmp's there are three of them. you will know when you see them which are which.

use them in paintshop and make new images on them keeping the size i did.

good luck.
