This is a skin based on BaddaBings Heavymetal series with a flash overlay.
Read more and download here
Have fun

I always liked BaddaBings Heavymetal series but wanted to ad some animations to it so i tweaked it a bit. Big thanks and all credits to him. (BaddaBing you saved me allot of time :wink: )

Some of the icons in the skin are built from the noia icons for KDE.
Made by Carlitus (Carles Carbonell Bernado)

Also big thanks to all the people at Flashkit for allot of help and tips and tricks

This skin is only 1024x768 and to use with mouse.

You can look at some of the flash overlay here.

Some screenshots:





If you got some of the Heavymetal skins up and running you could just download the skin here
Otherwise you also need this fonts and this plugins (xoapweather, xmovewindow, xstats and sendfocus.exe)

First time you load the skin in xlobby it may take some time (depending on your internet connection speed) fore the flash overlay to load.

All the functions in the skin are the same as BaddaBings Heavymetal skin. I have not tweaked the ppc screens but can do so if there are interests.

Let me know what you think.

Once again, BaddaBing, big thanks for sharing your skins.

I know flash too Rika, Had I know I could have given you some tips, I am on flashkit as well. Looks good overall. I dont suppose youre giving out the .fla file are you? There are a couple of things I would refine. And I would add movie clips after the button press. One more thing, WHY BUTTERFLIES? :)

Good Job.

Thanks Colby
The .fla files are mostly just tweaks from flashkit. You can find the .fla on the xlobby server under Rika. Feel free to contribute :wink:

Why Butterfly’s?
Well it’s a nice little creature isn’t it?
Actually i started with the butterfly’s in the skin, the butterfly in the corner of album screen (see above) is animated (just simple show and hide img series) then I just ad it to the flash as well.

one bug/fix request:

When using this skin and connecting through a browser via xnet, the button icons font doesnt fit correctly (ie music button) and the overall ie gui size is small.

But I do gotta say I absolutely love this skin and love the xnet stuff with a laptop. I can control whole house audio from anywhere! Hats off to you guys for a great skin and feature!

kuntakintay, thanks
Xnet bug fixed now (sort of, you can’t see the flash in xnet but the main menu is more useful now). Just download the skin again.
If you have done allot of changes in your skin, let me know and i could guide you, so you don’t lose them.
