Cpro::Two - Development 2012

LATEST UPDATE - 2 Feb 2012

Get latest version here:
Planning Cpro::Two - Development 2012



OLD POST:
The forums have been quiet the last month or so :(
Luckily I'm on vacation for the next month so will try to do some more skinning to make up for it :)

Here is the work in progress version for Cpro::Two ;)

http://stashbox.org/725715/CproTwo_Build003.wal

Feel free to give input.

The main idea so far was to make sure the skin is usable on small & large widths and also dont waste lots of horizontal space. Have something cool in store for fullscreen mode too (the left/bottom/right and part of top title bar will be hidden when skin is fullscreen to give that extra useable space.... just like normal windows apps).

The skinners can look inside the skin so long to see how things are look atm ;)

We're also discussion what the best display layout may be, so feel free to give us some input. Pieter, maybe post build#2 as well, to show some difference!

yea looks better for me as well.
But i fear that creating designs w/ the centered cbuttns is hard :(

Just an idea, why don't we just put a variable in classicpro.xml and let it decide what layout to paint?

Between 2 and 3, is there any other difference other than the centered buttons and the beat vis?

Well, if its just that, to me they are both equally good ... so used to the buttons to the left! I love to see the beat vis but would like more than the regular lines and bars.

I really like the progress bar too :)

More progress...

http://stashbox.org/746456/CproTwo_Build004.wal

New stuff:
- Some buttons added
- Volume sliders there (still need bg & thumbs)
- Buttons area is now fixed height... just better this way :) (allow for more other cool stuff, more later [and also look easier to skin hehe)
- Songnames - detect artist/title if no tags (will fine tune later)
- Resize the skin live
- Seeker also refreshes way quicker than before



Some more ideas to come...
- Beatvis will be over the menu button (the llama)
- When you stop/pause a big pause/stop icon will be over the place where the time of track is displayed. (maybe animated)
- There will be a seperate layout.png for the fullscreen view (you will be able to choose the height on top but there will be no left/right/bottom borders so save space and to give you the normal windows behavior)
- The volume thumbs will also be able to be any width... for skinners this will help so you can fit it to your look and maybe make them 1pix transparent

If anyone want to make the place holder gfx better feel free to post the changed images :D

Dude, this is amazing! Only problem I can see, is that it only re-sizes from the bottom-left corner :3

Well... This is very good actually :D I like this minimal design. Can't be frames semi-traspered like in the Ebonite to be like aero? I know it must be skinable but can't you be add an option for this? And, isn't seeker a bit thick and, i remember an effect in the early centro skin i think. can you ad it to this again pieter? ;) One more think i don't like "by"s in generally. It is always problem to translating in Turkish :P
