Post a new topic
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!

Looks real nice! Maybe use lighter colors on the audio player. That makes the font look not to clattered. Cool the Advent font looks so smooth!
And great you uploaded no beta try out. Please keep everything private until October :).

Yeah man, looks sweet, nice job.
06:08 pm ( 8 years ago)
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

Looks good guys, love those dock icons. Are you developing the WB for Vista Pep?
08:50 am ( 8 years ago)
Yes and the icons as well =D
Some more wip footage...
08:58 am ( 8 years ago)
added contact hover...
09:14 am ( 8 years ago)
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.
03:01 pm ( 8 years ago)
another substyle with a smaller captionbar will follow soon ;)
06:58 am ( 8 years ago)
my two cents...
09:31 am ( 8 years ago)
here is my skincalc so far
its made to match the CAD already being done by mango Please give me some tips on what to change such as fonts etc! thanks
10:04 am ( 8 years ago)
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.
10:38 am ( 8 years ago)
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 :)
11:33 am ( 8 years ago)
Foobar footage =D
04:27 pm ( 8 years ago)
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?
08:56 pm ( 8 years ago)
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...
05:12 am ( 8 years ago)
This is as good as i got it Tom...
Here's the psd if you want to use it... 08/SkinCalc.psd
07:03 am ( 8 years ago)
I think the calculate buttons would look better with the font colours from here though
07:10 am ( 8 years ago)
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 :-)
08:00 am ( 8 years ago)
I also have a WIP
I made this with a gaia wallpaper. If it makes the contest we can all wear gaia ;) The skins look good so far. We are going to have a real nice core release. And it seems also on a solid running site.
08:15 am ( 8 years ago)
naalo: thanks mate, I'll go with that. I'll also see how those other colors go too. No reason not to be able to have two versions ;)
08:25 am ( 8 years ago)
To show off the menu in it's un-alphablended glory:
09:50 pm ( 8 years ago)
expanding on the gaia-mini 08 concept.
start button invisible then slides into view partial on hover then fully when pressed. log off / turn off text visible on hover. Oh & nice design marius.
01:58 am ( 8 years ago)
That is looking great jg!
02:45 am ( 8 years ago)
yeah, great startpanel jg..
05:32 am ( 8 years ago)
07:19 am ( 8 years ago)
I know, I konw, it's too early to make MOD of it :D
and yes, it's concept :D
08:51 am ( 8 years ago)
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.
11:13 am ( 8 years ago)
01:52 pm ( 8 years ago)
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.
07:27 pm ( 8 years ago)
swayso: its a good MOD though, doesn't stray too far from GAIA08 I think
07:46 pm ( 8 years ago)
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:
03:15 pm ( 8 years ago)
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.
03:48 pm ( 8 years ago)
here's a mockup of the bb4win that I've come up with:
the buttons are grey when inactive, orange when active, and red when hovered on
08:18 pm ( 8 years ago)
looks fresh =D
01:46 am ( 8 years ago)
a WIP of the rainmeter config alongside the skincalc I'm working on, based on the CAD skin in the screenshot, I will revise them as I see more GAIA stuff, to fit with the theme better
12:54 pm ( 8 years ago)
Albino that rainmeter looks HOT!
01:01 pm ( 8 years ago)
heres my vista WIP
only been working on it for 2 days so i have lots of more work to do. but this is so far ive come :) made the CAD from, the psd i got. same with the miranda skin. and icons.
08:58 pm ( 8 years ago)
2 days? amazing! Vista is not easy to skin, can't wait to see the finished product
01:30 am ( 8 years ago)
AlbinoAsian: haha yeah.. i made it before. but i had to re-make everything from scrath cuz i fucked something that i couldnt find out.
so yeah ive just been working for 2 days on that :P but i have so much more work left. glad u like it :)
12:08 pm ( 8 years ago)
heres a new screen from me
have been doin alot of improvements today :) hope u like it
07:37 pm ( 8 years ago)
Pekwm, xfce, and openbox are all 'done', but I want to rework the pekwm menu...
Pekwm: Looks the same as above, with improvements to make it more consistent. Xfwm4: Openbox: (credit to mangosango for this one)
09:22 pm ( 8 years ago)
invaderjohn, can't wait for it man!! ;)
07:29 am ( 8 years ago)
07:12 pm ( 8 years ago)
@ synorgy: its looking good :) I'd like to see a smoother gradient on the openbox though :D
12:54 am ( 8 years ago)
An update to Gaia Mini '08 (VS, CAD, GRJ2, Styler)
Preview: Wallpaper: BHTGR by *imrik (color mod)
10:22 pm ( 8 years ago)
O.O wow jg lookin' great!
Maybe have the shutdown button on the grj be white(?) idk, imo it'd just look fresher =) Looks awesome either way :)
12:27 am ( 8 years ago)
Yes, that shutdown should be white =D
02:54 am ( 8 years ago)
02:59 am ( 8 years ago)
I see me in the contact list, but I don't see you =/
03:00 am ( 8 years ago)
Icon update time!
I really enjoy the gaiamini mod. Very nice work. I really look forward to the release this year. It´s going to be a real, real nice pack!
03:19 am ( 8 years ago)
04:30 am ( 8 years ago)
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. :) Imrik: Thanks mate, those icons are SEX! Also thanks TXTR.
02:37 pm ( 8 years ago)
heres a new WIP update screen from me
hope u like it and i rly need someone in the project that could test drive this for me? would be great!
02:40 pm ( 8 years ago)
Here is a
rainlendar and a rainmeter clock
03:53 am ( 8 years ago)
yeah, that's really nice..
04:39 am ( 8 years ago)
meh, not so sure about the black in the playlist :( what do you think?
08:30 am ( 8 years ago)
I like that, maybe take on of the lighter dark grays from the titlebar, but still... great work on the font too!
10:24 am ( 8 years ago)
I think the playlist could look good in gray, but a little contrasted from the gray in the rest of the playlist's window.
04:07 pm ( 8 years ago)
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
10:43 pm ( 8 years ago)
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 ^^
09:02 pm ( 8 years ago)
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...
09:25 am ( 8 years ago)
Rainlendar update: and SonyEricsson K800i theme:
10:22 am ( 8 years ago)
It´s real cool we have some new skin sections in like the iphone and other mobile phone skins!
Please give me your vote on this one! I am trying to get it up as a gaia shirt for us :)
11:16 am ( 8 years ago)
ok here is my current linux gtk and emerald status. :)
01:13 am ( 8 years ago)
07:26 am ( 8 years ago)
Nice work on that wall Marius. Looks awesome. :)
05:26 pm ( 8 years ago)
Yeah, that looks great. I'm really excited about that photo wall - I think it'll look good with the more minimal stuff :D
10:59 pm ( 8 years ago)
RiianF - that GTK looks bamf. Loving the emerald too.
12:07 pm ( 8 years ago)
@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):
01:42 am ( 8 years ago)
@invaderjohn I'm on Vista x64... I could test your Vista port if you like, drop me a note and I'll be glad to help.
02:33 am ( 8 years ago)
BTW, what about a Firefox port? anyone?
Sorry for the double post.
02:49 am ( 8 years ago)
i might will do a modded classic.jar for GAIA:..
04:13 am ( 8 years ago)
mango: fullscreen is nice idea!!!
05:33 am ( 8 years ago)
mango: Nice work mate, all looks great. :)
06:43 pm ( 8 years ago)
wow, very impressive, mango
04:32 am ( 8 years ago)
thanks for the feedback you guys :) I'd really like for someone to test the CAD - especially somebody with a dual monitor setup to test the full screen. Send me a msg if you can :)
12:28 pm ( 8 years ago)
stele: well.. its kinda late for that now :P so i allready gpot myself a tester. otherwise that woukld be great.
and yes.. what about a firefox port :O that would be awesome.
03:02 am ( 8 years ago)
