Call to Design II



Skin Consortium is calling to get some great ClassicPro skins/designs done.
Here are the rules:
  • If you are interested reply in this thread mentioning the topic you want to work on
  • As soon we will give you a 'go', you can start working on the design concept
  • If the concept is approved you will get $25 for sure
  • Putting the stuff into ClassicPro will result in $25 added so a finished skin will receive $50




Note: If you feel like ClassicPro isn't the right target for your design idea and you would like to create something for Xion, feel free to let us know.

Can be done... but it wont be that good since you'll have to use the transparency hack because the Winamp developers dont want to fix the bug :D hehe

thought it wasnt a bug but a Windows limitation. maybe not with vista's architecture, but since tons of xp (or older) still being used i doubt it will be changed.

Dont think its a Windows or XP limitation. Winamp used to work on Windows 98 and a few versions back that support was stopped. So I think it have something to do with the face that Win9x could display transparent stuff so thats why it was disabled (Because there isnt an alpha_image xml param on <layer like there is for a fix background.

But I'm sure once the developers actually take the time to look they'll have a fix.

GTA4 is still in Martin's hands. F&F Skin is making new progress in Xion AND Cpro, They will be completely different looking skins (the cpro version being closest to the winamp modern one but not the same of course. and the xion version being completely free-styler made from the body reference of a more modern mustang (I have three Xion skins in concept right now, two will be finished and one I'll post to see if I should continue it.) also another xion skin will be based off of the layouts I found for the official myspace pages found on the fastandfurious website and various elements found on the site itself...) So in all I'll have 1 cPro and 2 Xion skins and 1 Concept for Xion posted when I finish the skins enough for a good preview.

After these I may start either a Transformers2 skin or a U2 skin (depending on what the resources look like for them although hypothetically the T2 one should be easier but you never know.) Also I have a Windows Seven based skin in progress in Xion im not sure if you want me to submit that for this but I might have already posted a preview somewhere on SC (although it has changed since that preview.) the only thing that that skin is waiting for is the playlist functionality to stabalize and a more stable version of Xion to be released.

I've got a nice idea about the U2 skin, i will do some initial work, and give the concept as a print screen. Should be done by tonight if no major problems appear.

EDIT: OK, so the skin is about 30% done, and a screenshot is provided in the attachment as for you to see the concept. The skin follows the simple yet very likable design that U2 implements on their website and their new album cover art (the screenshot was taken with the player on a background of the new U2 album cover). The background on the skin is actually taken from the new album front cover. Following the new U2 album name, I name this skin: Winamp cPro U2 NO LOTH, which is short of "U2 NO LINE ON THE HORIZON".
