    Hello guys

    I've created this skin for MP with Photoshop.
    I don't know how to make skins for MP and i'dont understand the the Skin Tool works.

    Can anyone help me with main menu? I can send the all PSD files if a skin developer can convert my PSD file into working skin.



    Thank's a lot

    First, I like the style! But I wonder about your plans for the Music skin, I haven't seen it setup like this and you may want to chat with the the Music plugin developer to understand if what you have planned for this skin is a possibility. I see you have years then genre, but then you have album (CD) covers also. So I think it best that you speak via PM (PrivateMessage) with SteveV to see first if that screen/skin can be accomplished or if it needs further coding.

    this screenshot are from my real application developed with Windows Presentation Foundation(WinFX), under Windows XP including amazing animations.

    But I have some problems coding. until i found this project and i think to contribute with GUI. (I'm a software GUI designer)

    My first interest are the main menu (home.xml) the music menu will be wait.

    Regards.

    I realy like the looks of the skin. It would be nice to have some skins with furthergoing animations, if at all possible.

    I agree, very nice looking and it would be cool to have some skins that use different animations and such for menus etc.

    I would suggest getting the free/opensource IRC client hydrairc (http://www.hydrairc.com/ to chat with the developers online. I know that they are looking to move toward what you have started to develope and your help would be an asset. But alot of this GUI work has been planned after the release of version 0.2.0.0 (I'm not sure when - but you can discuss it with them).
