I feel useless.... Azenis is no patch on Bento...

I dont think I'm going to put anymore time into skinning...

Somewhere in the back of my mind I had an feeling you're project was a Sui skin... some time back you said something about multi component holders in one skin you're working on... and when you said that a beta will be out for your big project I knew it... DAmm Thats Just Awesome... DAMM

Well... I feel useless...

Bento remind me of MusicMatch Jukebox...

I now feel just like when I used Kamelon DUI for the first time... This is just to good...

They must have paid you for all this work!

Review:
- The songticker is too small... see attachment for alternative
Can maybe throw the songticker in the titlebar...
All other bugs is just to obvious so wont bored you with them because this is WIP...

I feel like I just been hit my a bus :P

Martin....you're just too good man. Congratulations on creating the skin I have the biggest respect for :)

Only thing that can up my mood now is if SouthAfrica beat England tommorrow by 20points in RugbyWCup... :D

yes, 5.37 is a superset, but obviously more things will have changed, so it needs to work with the release version

hey you all,
of course i am back for skinning here when this is finished, but creating the winamp default skin was a dream since i begun skinning (w/ wa3 beta 2.5 weirzbowski).
in my opinion azenis2 is a lil bit better than bento if you look on the functionality side. and don't for get you hadn't a benski who had to do this, create that...
one thing you can add to azenis normal layout is: primarycomponent="guid.player" so the components will leave from beeing focused, better dragging support, etc.

Benski and me won't release the new std.mi, till we are 100% sure about new functions. btw, there will also be a winampconfig.mi, wich lets you check prefs direct from the winamp prefs. works on most pages...

will give the bigger songticker a try.

here are some new functions that are fix now:
extern Int System.getCurrentTrackRating();
extern System.setCurrentTrackRating(int rating);
extern string system.getDecoderName(string file);
extern int layer.isInvalid();
...so you can atleast update some of the azenis 2 functions, so please do not stop from skinning!

btw, if someone will take Bento as source for other skins that's no prob. some guys are hoping for a winamp modern skin on bento....

and please - create colorthemes!

One day later... I feel better.

Review for Bento:
Coding = 10/10
Gfx = 2/10

Think this is actually a risky move for Nullsoft.

Who is the gfx guy? Maybe a link to some of his other work?

I'll steel a few ideas for my next skin though :P...

Needs more streamlined graphics, but god damn that Bento skin is nice.

I like Bento skin. I never look at the grfx part, but it is easy to use and requires amazingly little CPU for the grfx and functionality it gives. But
I don't like about the skin is that it has very little buttons (the same with the other parts of the skin - for 1280/1024 monitor).
And why songticker moves in such gaps, and why can't I move it in shade mode?
Visualization in shade mode doesn't have equal bar width (wide bars).
The last but not the least thing is if you say I can use Bento as source, why are there no maki sources, at least compatible with the last version?

As for the whole winamp, great work.

the gfx guy is Taber Buhl, who is one of the Nullsoft peeps.
He wanted a slick player aligned to wa classic - so this is what we came out with.

atm, we are about to do some bug fixes and realize some requetsts.

For the source code: WILL BE DISTRIBUTED W/ WINAMP FINAL
so everyone can use it (maybe about.m and browser.m will not be published, but you can use the browser script as is, with sendAction() functions :)

perhaps we will also do some gfx changes/additional modes... you'll see
