Beautiful. If you want to think about future adjustments, the scrollbar slider is almost invisible on my screen. I can live with it to enjoy this nice skin.
Can't afford a signature.

Than you GeraldB ! :)

The scrollbar slider? I suppose it's the lack of contrast, more specifically when the slider is very small.
I will see what I can do in next version.

Like this skin a lot. Just a couple requests.

The microplayer, which I like to use to save space while playing is very hard to read.






And is there anyway to make the program bar glass while maintaining the skin inside? Thanks again.

This is not normal. Is that on Windows 7 ?

On my system (Win XP) it's looks like this:

Edit: I can confirm it's unreadable on Vista too.
I will try to solve the problem. I will keep you informed.

Do you mean making the title bar the same as Windows' one? If it's the case, no it's not currently possible.

how are you doing the fonts in the micro player?
i have been using the old winamp classic way of using a font bmp.
not sure if i changed it to any other way, but i have not changed my micro players in 2 years
i use the same ones on all of my skins.

i can't check to see if i did still use them cause i'm on a different computer now so i don't have
my working skin folder handy. i got to transfer it yet.
but i think if you use that font bmp and change the font on it to one that is on vista or win 7 it might show up.

did you try that? if that works let me know so i can adjust mine if need be. :)

Thank you DreadM. I was not aware of this problem before.

@chiapete82, seems like a bug. text/objects in the microplayer are transparent and inherit color from combination of desktop background/window color intensity.

@rovingcowboy, it's only regular text;

Code: Select all

[SongTitle]
Type=Text
FontHeight=-9
FontColor=0
...
I think we can't use bmp font anymore since MM 3.0. Except for player's timer.

Eyal,
I'm not sure if you are aware or not, but Trixmoto is releasing a new version of MonkeyRok. It is supposed to have some big changes, including tabbed interface.

Since Helium gDark and Spotify are some of my favorite skins, I'm wondering if you will be updating the MR skin to accommodate the new changes?
Trixmoto was even kind enough to list the changes that need to be done in the new MR skins. Here is his message from the MonkeyRok thread:
trixmoto wrote:I've written a list of tips for what skinners will need to change or do differently for MonkyRok version 5.0 (the new version)...

HTML:
1. Character set changed to UTF8 to support unicode
2. Replaced "scriptaculous" links with "jquery" links
3. Moved images to "images" folder, including new images
4. Moved "toggleVisible" events to "_header" divs
5. Added "hide" and "mini" images to the "_header" divs
6. Added "info_volume" div to "info_left" div
7. Added "info_position" and "info_loved" divs to "info_right" div
8. Added divs for external panels 2-5 (copies of "external_" divs)

CSS:
1. Added "cursor:pointer" rule to elements which have click events
2. Moved images to "images" folder, including new images
3. Added rules to position the new "info_" divs

VBS:
1. Added "Skin_Mode" to return the context menu theme
2. Replaced "scriptaculous" functions with "jquery" functions
3. Changed "toggleVisible" to change mini/maxi images and handle new "info_" divs
Thanks Eyal!

Thanks for the info, gpzbc. However this info is not sufficient to begin an update. I need the script to be able to test it, and see how it works.

Be sure I'll work on it as soon as it becomes available.

There is a glitch with this skin with Monkey Rok 5.0; there are supposed to be question marks that for example expand the contents of a particular album. What is actually displayed as a white box with a red cross in it. Double clicking it produces no response.

That's because Eyal hasn't released the skin for MR 5.0 yet. :D But it looks like it is coming soon!
