    For those who like the WMC concept, but prefer a darker and less blue-loaded setting there is a good information. There will be a "Dark WMC" theme for WMCSkin.



    The theme will be included in all releases after MP2.1 Pre-Release 2.

    The Dark-WMC theme is finished and will be included in next release :)
    The player controls are untouched though, means the "blue" play/pause button remains for example. This is to ensure enough contrast and keep the focus on the important element. Also it would be too boring, if really all items are grey or black.

    The Dark Theme got some minor modifications. The background images were based on WMC default. Reduction of saturation lead to visual problems in the grey tone gradients and created artefacts. Compare with screenshot from first post. Especially on TV it looked not good.
    I created another background offering a much better visual appearance.
