let's just have a topic where all the works in progress are posted!

this is the first version of the samurize config:



samurize config runs in two different instances so you can move the amp as you want it doesn't move the taskbar!

taskbar:
- tasks are shown with active and inactive task buttons
- left click on a task toggles it
- right click on a task closes it
- clock on the right side

amp:
- left click on the custo logo directs you to
- progress bar on bottom left
- artist, song, album and time left/time of the song in the middle
- next, previous, play buttons on the right side
- click on the upside arrow shows winamp

works all so far... any suggestions for the buttons in the bar? links to certain application? which applications?

cheers!

I gt a copy of jg's CAD and made some minor changes to it (mostly with the functionality - the buttons were sometimes a bit finicky). It works brilliantly so far, and props to jg for all of the work he did on it. There's a preview the version I just modified here:



any suggestions on it would be awesome!

cheers,
Sang

Love it, I think this will be your best work to date. (and that's saying a lot). I look forward to seeing all the elements come together & see the screenies that pop up afterwards.

cheers.

Please give me some tips on what to change such as fonts etc! thanks

HEHE, that's sweet, I would go with rounded non-alphablended corners on the bottom (black) and not completely follow the CAD skin, it will look more tight.

ambulance says:

just to throw in my 2 cents. i think jg's second concept should be considered for the more minimal vs.

everything is looking good though :)

AlbinoAsian says:

naalo, thanks mate. I'm having real problems getting alpha blending to work nice with skincalc though. Its all bitmaps not png, so you have to use an alpha mask, no matter how I try I can't get it to look any good. I know it is possible though. Anyone think they could help me with that?

naalo says:

Well you can't get rid of jagged corners completely unless you match it to a wall, but it can improve a little, i'll have a look at it.

Meanwhile, are some suite updates, the shutdown is WindowBlinds too...

Started working on the PekWM theme, based it on one of JG-Visuals WIPs just to get my feet wet.



Disregard that the GTK theme doesn't match :-)

Thanks guys, still a WIP, appreciate the feedback.
novoo: Thanks man, wasn't sure how it'd be received. I might add a little graphic/text to the bare spot next to the run dialog.
Also thank you again to Marius & Pep for the great concepts/inspiration & allowing us to create with.

lol @ bernadinho: I just noticed that on the music player, the next button was left of the previous button. Just thought that seemed kind of wierd.

swayso: its a good MOD though, doesn't stray too far from GAIA08 I think

woohooo started on the winamp classic skin:
volume/balance, eq & pl buttons, stereo/mono stuff is not skinned yet....



by the way the the samurize config is done already ;) the menu in the top right corner fades in and out by clicking on the arrow:

naalo says:

Great how you fitted it al in there, Winamp classic is hard to use with this design. I would maybe lose the three coloured topright part and just use the most right colour, just as on the Litestep popup, to make it less busy.

The Samurize config looks good too, only the fonts don't seem very sharp.

the buttons are grey when inactive, orange when active, and red when hovered on

mangosango: Thanks for the feedback man, lol I had 4 color variations for the button which I debated on. Red, Green, Grey & White. I guess I picked the wrong one. I'll try the white or dark grey.
Pep: Thanks as well. I added your contact info (ICQ) from the note you sent me, I guess I forgot to give you mine back d'oh! Note sent. :)

I like that, maybe take on of the lighter dark grays from the titlebar, but still... great work on the font too!

plain-doh says:

I think the playlist could look good in gray, but a little contrasted from the gray in the rest of the playlist's window.

09:07 pm (9 years ago)

mangosango says:

yeah, I agree with naalo & pd as well. Maybe a different font on the song ticker? It just seems a bit out of place when compared to the smoother playlist font :) but w/e its looking good :D

03:43 am (9 years ago)

mangosango says:

I also had some time to make more CAD skins - specifically more minimal ones to match the bb4win :D



The "Original" is basically jg's mockup - with a few font changes here and there.

The "Small" has hidden next/previous buttons that appear only when you hover over them (the two black buttons next to the bulge at the bottom)

The "Extra Small" has a play/pause button on the left (the black arrow) and a seek bar above the colored bar :)

I'm not too sure about the buttons on the second one though...criticism is appreciated :) I'll hopefully have a fullscreen version soon as well ^^

02:02 am (9 years ago)

bernadinho says:

looks cool :)
but you should delete the white 1px line on the left side of the "original" version ;) and maybe add some more rounded corners on the small and extra small version but that's just my personal taste...

here's another update of the winamp skin:



btw. I tried the playlist with a lighter gray, it doesn't look too good so I kept a darker grey...

mangosango says:

@Bernhadino: Thanks for the feedback :) I think I'm going to keep the extra small, just to keep it simple, but I'm going to put more curves on the small version :)

I also finally had time to make the full screen CAD (basically a screensaver):
