:lol:
yes we have a similar programme in the UK...they never have got my likeness correct 8)

As I was working on moding this skin for my system I started to wonder what would need to change when Steve releases v3.


yes, sadly i wasnt around at the time v3. was offered, i was too busy using v2. It's a real shame, my hope is if i keep banging out skins when v3 is released and i see what it looks like i can plead and grovel to Wes/Steven to buy a copy :(

The new skin i am doing i really like so those who like to swap and change may get a kick out of it. I'll post a movie screen 2night to wet appetites and see if it would be worth continuing on for public release.

Dont really like the new movie screen...goes away from your original design too much but I could not do better for certain.

I think Wes should grandfather anyone who makes skin or plugin contributions to the forum based on feedback. In my opinon, you qualify. Besides, I want you to do a v3 version so I can "borrow" more good ideas.

PhilB just out of interest which colour scheme did you go with in the end, silver/black or black/silver?

scottw thanks!

The new skin design, once i have it fleshed out i will do different backgrounds so people can alter it to their tastes. This skin i think will be easier to port to remote control.

Of course this may be academic because as far as i can tell PhilB ur the only one using my first effort! :D I may be ur own personal skinner! :lol:

...each skin i do i hope to make completely different from the last one, the sad thing is i've done one screen on this one and i'm already thinking of the next skin :shock:

Here is a link to some screen shots of my "in progress" version of this skin.

http://pballai.com/Phil/Music%20Server%206/Main%20Page.htm

I have lots to do and will likely continue to change things along the way. I am really just experimenting with this skin to see if I can make my system more consistent and easier/faster to use. I expect that I wont finish until I understand how v3 will effect/improve what we can skin.

Also, check out my existing project at http://pballai.com/Phil/MusicServer/MusicServer.html

Thanks for the comments guys :D

Oh yes i followed Colby's work, i've been lurking since 04 but havent posted to much, i'm not very technical like u guy's so never had much to say but i wasted my youth at Art College and i've finally had a crack at Photoshop for the first time. I enjoy skinning so u will see alot more out of me, i've no plans to go anywhere.

Marbles_00, really looking forward to your skin due to your technical know how, would like a crack at re skinning yours if u dont mind in the future. Technolobby Touch will also become Technolobby Remote.
